I'm updating my blog from the comfort of our backyard on this 85 degree Saturday. Heath has the charcoal burning down in the grill. We have some steaks and corn on the cob about to be thrown on the grill. I'm drinking a Mike's Hard Winter Blackberry, Heath is drinking one of his IPA's. I love this time of year in Las Vegas. Not hot and not cold. It's perfect.
On Monday morning, we are having our soft water and reverse osmosis system installed at the house. The water in Las Vegas is horrible. The only times we get to use soft water is when we go back to visit family in Wisconsin/Illinois. It will be the greatest thing ever once our house has everything installed. My skin and hair will look and feel so much better.
After the installation is complete, I am taking Carleigh to the preschool around the corner from our house. Carleigh recently got a new teacher in her room at her current daycare and I do not like her at all. This young lady acts like a child and is a borderline bully when the children are having a tough time. She mocks Carleigh and the rest of the kid's in her room when they are crying after falling down or are just upset in general. It's just not something that is acceptable for me. We kept Carleigh at this daycare after we moved, even though it was way out of our way, because she had a really great teacher. Since that teacher moved on to a different job, it's just time for me to take Carleigh out of her current daycare and get her to a place that's much closer to home.
After work yesterday, Carleigh & I went into Target so I could buy The Sims 3. I've loved playing that game since the original game came out. I still remember playing the Livin' Large expansion. I have Sims 2, but it wasn't that fun at all. It was enough to cure your boredom for a short period of time. The Sims 3 is fun and time slips away from you quickly while playing. I was going to buy an expansion pack with the game, but decided not to at this time. I wanted to get used to the features of The Sims 3 before I bought anything else.
In other house news, we are going to paint Carleigh's room purple. She has been stuck on this idea for a month now. We brought home some of those paint sample sheets from Home Depot this afternoon. Carleigh is picking out colors that are just a bit darker than your normal lilac color, but not as dark as midnight purple shade. We also have plans to paint our half bathroom downstairs and the accent wall in our kitchen/dining room. Carleigh's room takes top priority. It will be a lot of fun painting her room since she chose purple.
That's all I have today. I'm going to enjoy the rest of my Winter Blackberry drink before our dinner comes off the grill.
