Brakes sure are expensive.

I went to midas early this morning to take care of our repair the damage ended up costing us $611.24. But, on the plus side, gettting up early meant that I was able to get a lot done, though you wouldn't be able to tell it by my point system. You see, I only got 9 points that day. But, the pitfall with my system is that, I get one point for each thing I cross off my list....regardless of how long it took me to accomplish that one thing. For instance, 30 minutes of cleaning around the house gets the same amount of points (1) as reading an entire chapter in one of my text books. Maybe I should change the system...but then again, it works in motivating maybe not!

Crazy day!

Today I was in class from 8am-2:30pm. Then I walked home and ended up picking up Merrilyn's kids from a lawyers office and babysitting them for a while. They gave us our car back to get the brakes fixed....they were BAD. So, long story short, I ended up walking a long ways back to the Lawyer's office to pick up my car, then to pick Micah up at Midus. I'll have to go back in the morning to get the brakes fixed....I'm so tired.

Wedding Day

On Sunday morning, we took things kinda slow because we were surprising mom with an 11am appointment to renew their vows. So, we kinda walked around our hotel for a while, gambled a little, then got breakfast before we headed to the chappel. Mom was really surprised.
After the ceremony, we went to the Wynn and out to lunch at the Harley Davidson Cafe before us kids had to catch our flight home. It was a good time.

Las Vegas!

Saturday morning mom had to go to a conference for her job, so Dad took us kids out to the Hoover Dam. It was only my 3rd trip out there, but this time it was way cool, because they're in the process of building a bridge OVER the dam so that traffic can bypass the tourist stuff. Isn't that fun? It's amazingly high, and it would be soooo cool to actually see them working on it every day!
After the Dam we went back to the strip to visit the MGM and the M&M factory, then we had a late lunch at the ESPN Zone. We went back to the hotel to rest for a while, then did a little gambling while we waited for mom to be done. When she'd finished with her work we went with her to see the rest of the things we wanted to see on the Strip, including the Paris hotel and Margaritaville. We had dinner then headed back to the hotel. Justin and Mom stayed down and gambled for a while, but the rest of us were kinda tired.

Las Vegas!

All of my classes were canceled today, which I was really thankful for, because that means I got to get ready for Vegas. My brother and sister-in-law picked us up at around 6:30 so that we could get to the air port for our 9:30 flight. Vegas, here we come!

(got 9 super woman points, today.)

Wonder Woman again

...but just barely. 31 points for me today! I worked from 7am-3:45, so I must have got a lot of birthday cards sent. Then after work we went to Topeka to watch movies with my parents at Miguel's house. Then we went to the Outback where I got asked if I needed a children's menu.
