I'm just going to be honest.
This month we have only used one tank of gas. The light is on, but I am trying to hold out till February 1st to fill it up. We're also out of toilet paper, but I won't wait till February to make that purchase.
We walk to and from school so the car stays in our parking stall most days. Sometimes when I walk outside in the morning I think that somehow miraculously our '97 Corolla will be swapped with a new one. It hasn't happened yet.
Along the lines of wishful thinking, the other day I thought that if every student at BYU gave me just $1.00 then I would be approximately $30,000 richer. Still working on how to pull that one off, since there are plenty of greater causes that need donations.
We almost had a crisis this week. Drew (or should I say his parents) lost Sophie. He absolutely loves the giraffe that his Aunt Stacey gave him. Luckily, Great Aunt Carol pulled through and found it.
I also am taking a Travel & Tourism class which is a requirement for my major. I really really like it. But the teacher is missing a finger and when he starts talking with his hands I lose focus. He is from rural Idaho, so missing only one finger is actually quite impressive.
We are in love with sugar-free Jell-o. So far we have enjoyed every flavor we have tried. But I'm sure you all know what they say about sugar free foods... one word: GAS.
Drew had his 6 month appointment a few weeks ago and is doing great. He is completely caught up on weight and height and is in the 70th percentile for both, if that means anything to anyone. He has a high-pitched piercing squeal and is exploring flavors beyond formula.
Every so often I think, "I am so glad we named Drew, Drew." Lately it has been because it rhymes with so many things. Which is a decent reason I suppose. The boy loves music so when I break out in song with my chalkboard-scratching pipes I rhyme every song to his name.
Can't Help Falling in Love With Drew- Elvis Presley/Michael Buble (both versions are great)
I Will Always Love Drew- Whitney Houston
Without Drew- Mariah Carey
In other news, we are working hard to graduate in April, and hope to decide soon on where we will be spending the next few years while at Law School. We will be sure to keep you all posted.
