Still here, still nothin' to blog about

Still not really thinking of much to blog about. But I can't just leave it hangin'.

So I've started on the adventure of potty training Zachary. He's a stubborn child. He's always done things his way and on his timeline. It's been an interesting couple of days, lemme tell ya, but we've had a little success. However, he has this thing for shoes. He likes to wear them all.the.time. And the first couple times he had an accident and we had to change his bottoms, he insisted on a new pair of shoes to wear as well. At one point, he was wearing shoes 3 sizes too big. Today, I've been able to distract him from having to wear shoes.

Stephen's coming to the very sad realization that this family, and alas, the universe, does not revolve around him. There's been much moaning and lamenting on his part and even as I type this, he's telling me that he wants to move to another house far, far away...maybe Dallas, he says. (I have to add that this particular bout of Stephen's self-pity was brought on because I'm not letting him watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas.)

On a happier note, we got our income tax refund in so we will be able to finish off Baby Step #1 and most of Baby Step #2!! We are so excited about this! We can't wait to yell "FREEDOM!" when we are completely debt free!

zachary sounds like chloe...
stubborn :) I've been putting her on the potty once in awhile but she always says no and tries to jump off...I guess I won't push it yet, she is only 18 months.

The shoe thing is hilarious! :)

Dallas sounds good, you should all move there! Congrats with the paying down on debt. We had hoped to pay of the car with our tax return, but we didn't quite make it.
