It's that time again! You know what really grinds my gears? When Financial Institutions punish you for being poor. I'm mean seriously! It's not our fault we live paycheck to paycheck, barely making ends meet. So we can't afford all the bills that went through and we bounce the $2 chicken nuggets and fries. Now they cost me an extra $25? Come on! We're poor enough! Give us a break, please? And that, is what really grinds my gears.
So I added this game here to the right of my profile. Well I became obsessed with it. It is so addicting! And I've even won it quite a few times. So if you haven't played it yet, check it out. You will be coming back to my blog everyday to get your fix!
So for those who don't know, when Ben and I first moved here, literally when we pulled up to his house to drop his kids off, his car died. We had to get it towed and it ended up being is fuel pump. One week and $500 later we get it back.
About 2, or so,weeks after that, my car wouldn't start. The interior light had been pumped and was left on all weekend. So the battery was shot. Did you know that even at Wally World, batteries are like $65? Rip off!
Well today, I was leaving to meet Ben to get a check for our rent. I got outside and the key less entry wouldn't work, first clue. You would've peed. I almost didn't think to use the key manually to open the door. So, I get in and turn the key, nothing. Son-of-a-;aslkdg!!!!!!Are you kidding me? I call Ben, and he comes home instead of meeting me halfway. We attempt to jump start the car, still nothing. So we're assuming its probably the alternator. At any rate, another expense. I'm so raged and DONE with car troubles.
So I was going through some Program Files and came across this Movie Maker. I had no idea I had it. Well, thanks to my daddy, the video master, I basically knew how to do it without reading a lot of the instructions. So this was my first experiment. ENJOY!
(Most of the pics are from the ones I posted the other day, oh well)
Carter has been off his binky for a whole week! I snipped the tip off of it so he didn't like the feeling in his mouth. Well that night I was worried he wouldn't sleep. I couldn't find the other 2 we had just in case I became desperate at 2AM. But low and behold I couldn't find one. Which is really weird. He did fine though. He's asked for it at least once a day and I give him the cut one and he chucks at me. YEAH! No more BINKY! He was getting to the point where he was talking with it in his mouth. Um, no child of mine will be one of those kids.
Alrighty, where to begin. I'm so good at keeping this thing updated. I guess I'll start with July. IT'S BEEN SO FREAKING HOT! This place has been a balmy 113 degrees average with no breeze and no chance of scattered showers. Now it's the monsoon season so you add 50%plus humidity. So now all I have to do is walk to the car, or vacuum, or who am I kidding, just sit there! and I sweat! It's awesome. Here is our 4th of July pic. Never mind the lovely forklift behind us.
So on the 4th, our Ward had a little breakfast and parade. Well they started it at 7AM because its so hot you have to do things that early. Well, if you know me, you know I don't get up that early. We made it a little after 8AM, missed the flag ceremony, parade and a hot breakfast. They still had food for us though. So they had a water slide set up and Carter was dying to go down it. Here is the snap shot of him going down. it's blurry but you get the idea. It was too funny. He ended up going down 3 times.
Here are just some funny pics of Carter from the last month.
A couple weeks ago, our apartment decided to flood. A pipe from our hot water heater burst under the foundation. So they pulled up the carpet, soaked up the water, jack hammered down about 2 feet to fix the leak. We were put up in a hotel for 2 nights while they fixed the problem. It was quite the ordeal. From the night I noticed the carpet was wet to the day they finished putting the carpet down, and cleaning it, it ended up being a whole week! The only good thing that came out of it, I get to organize our bedroom better then it was, and it forced us to unpack the rest of my boxes.
The Hunter Family
Est. June 5, 2008 Ben and I met in November, 2007. He lived in Arizona, me in Utah. We dated long-distance and he purposed to me on Valentines Day at the airport. We were married on June 5th. We now live in Gilbert, AZ.
Ben is a software engineer for Insight. He has 2 kids from a previous marriage. Noah is 9 and Mollie is 8.
Carter loves to have the kids here. I'm always doing something else, ignoring him, (jk) so he gets bored with me all day long.
I miss my family and friends but I am happy here. Visit us as often as you can! I want the company!
