Things have been, like, CRAZY busy lately. Not even kidding. Plus, I get distracted really easily, so each time I've told myself I was going to update my blog, I ended up doing homework (good), cutting out coupons (good), writing thank-you's (good), watching random shows like Tool Academy (BAD...those people are insane, so it's hilarious), or just sitting and staring at a wall (bad).

Today was productive, though. Audrey and I went out to the Verizon store to get my phone fixed. I dropped it and the back fell off, which is really not that big of a deal. Plus, I DID get the insurance on my phone, thank God. But the guy was being dumb. He kept making all these comments about "See, this is why you need to buy a case for your phone." I was like, "I don't understand why you need to have a case. There's no reason. If it's so necessary it should come with the phone." He didn't have anything to say.

But I ended up getting a case.

I guess he won. Damn. But then again, they are sending me another phone. Fo' free. Maybe I win :) Audrey was pretty good the whole time, but she started practicing her fun little yells. She's totally just testing out her vocal chords, but I'm not big on it if we're like out at a restaurant or something. Sometimes I'll let it go a little, but I usually kindly say, "No yelling, Audrey." I'm not trying to be a big party pooper or anything, and I understand she's only 5 (almost 6!) months old, but I just don't think it's appropriate. I know she can't understand what I'm saying, but I figure I can plant the seed now so that she'll understand when mom reacts like this, I stop. We'll see how that works out. If we're at home or something, I'll let it go a little more.

Other than that, my godmother Maureen and her daughter Kaci came over to help me write out some bills and go through my mom's closet a bit more. We went through a bunch of her shoes. My mom has some adorably--and ridiculous--stuff. She has kept EVERYTHING. She had these cute little gray pumps with bows on them that she bought in 1981! How do I know this? She kept all the receipts. I definitely have to do a post about some of her clothes. Oh, she still cracks me up. I miss her.

But I willllllll attempt to update this more often. I've just been so busy with Audrey, school, work, keeping up with housework, meeting with finanical advisors, and running a million and five random little errands. But we're hanging in there.
