Broken, yard sales, and parties

Weekends need to be 3 days instead of 2, can I get an amen?  We spent Friday night at home waiting on the washing machine repair man to show up.  Our washer went out this past week, it's only 15 months old so I figured it something small.  Um...nope!  It's the motor.  To fix it,it's going to cost almost as much as the machine did itself.  Plus, it's going to be 7-10 business days before it's even here. 

Steve had a meeting at church on Saturday so the boys and I went to Scott's to check out how our yard sale was doing.  Scott advertised on Craig's List, despite the cold, we made almost $180.  Between us, Scott, and their parents we did over $600.  This made me feel a tad bit better about washer.  Later on while Cameron was napping, we watched Up with Cooper.  I missed the first 20 minutes or so cause I was trying to sleep off a headache.  I need to go back and watch it, it was a super cute movie!  I had a voucher that was going to expire soon for Sweet N Swirly, so we headed over there after dinner.  There was no Thunder going for us. 

Cooper was invited to a birthday party on Sunday.  It was for Kolton and Kylie from school and it was at Outside In, he loves that place so there was no doubt we would go.
 I got to spend some rare one on one time with him and Steve got to stay home and nap while Cameron was napping.  It was a win-win for everyone.
After the party I took Cooper to pick out some new tennis shoes.  I was hoping we could make it through the summer but he keeps complaining about how tight they are.  He just keeps growing and growing. 

We spent the rest of the evening just relaxing at home.   Steve is in a basketball league on Sunday evenings at church, he has been gone for a while and it was almost bedtime so I was reading to the boys when Cooper looks at me and asks where daddy was.  I mean really?  It took you that long.    Silly kid!

Uhm funny washer story. I got a new one-when the guy delivered it it had an error & he ordered me another. Won't b here for 2 weeks. Gulp. I'm waaaaay to much of a spoiled brat to go the laundry mat. Besides I don't even know where one is. I'll have to depend on mom as house for a washer. Ahhh takes ,e back to the good ole days of 7 days with no power.
Enough about me...glad the kiddo had fun at the birthday party! Fun stuff!
