Tonight Eric, Ellie and their 3 kids came over after dinner to play, and we had a good time fellowshipping and reading the morning revival together. Our home group meeting was supposed to be at Howard's house but since we were already at home, Philip called them and all the saints came. We had a good meeting, although Eric looked very tired.
This morning after I dropped off Timothy at school I drove to the area where Ellie's house is and saw some garage sales so I thought I'd look around. The 1st house I went to, I saw one of Timothy's classmates' mom hosting. She didn't recognize me though, and I bought a white dresser from her for $25. It looks still in very good shape and just perfect to put Acacia's baby clothes in our room. Maybe later on when Acacia is bigger we will get her a bigger and nicer dresser(when she moves into her room probably in 2 years), but for now the dresser should work. We were thinking about buying one at Ikea but I am glad I found one at such a cheap price. Maybe I will stencil some girly decorations on the dresser to make it look nicer. I also went to Marshall's after the garage sales to look around, to kill time and relax. I found a Eddie Bauer diaper bag(backpack style) for only $9 dollars, a very well made diaper bag. The color is hunter green so it's not the greatest color for a little girl but I still like it a lot so I bought it. It's got some nice features and I am sure it will be very useful when Acacia comes. I never bought a nice diaper bag with my 2 boys and since this is our last baby I want to treat myself a little better.
Today was a little chilly, even raining here. When I went to pick up Jacob it was raining so I stood by the bus with an umbrella so Jacob wouldn't get wet. Mr. King told me Jacob has been standing up in the bus while he drove so I made sure Jacob knows NOT to do that anymore, too dangerous. Jacob said he was trying to pick up things he dropped on the floor...
Philip might be going on a business trip to the British Virgin Island, if work required, sometime during the 2nd half of the year. I actually think it's good for him to go because now at Customer support group, it's nearly impossible to go abroad for trainings and business trips, and he will be able to gain some good experiences working there. I just hope it's not at the time when I am about to give birth or right after I have the baby, I will definitely want to have Philip around then.
Bought another brand new Carnation color wonderoos diaper today($12), the mommy was so nice she even includes a new insert for free, the insert usually costs $5.5 to $8 dollards alone!!! I am excited we are going to use cloth diapers this time with Acacia. It should be better for her skin and good for the environment, while saving money at the same time !!
I am also thinking about using a pacifier this time. With Jacob and Timothy they didn't use pacis much(Timothy totally rejected it). But I think it will be good to use it this time, so I don't have to be human pacifier to baby.
so I shall end here today. ready for bed. So tired!
