So, some things got done, others- not so much... I totally forgot to take pictures of how we rearranged the furniture inour living room, but let me tell you... it feels so much better in there. Husband and I have definitely decided that its time for new furniture though. Our current living room furniture is all handmedowns. The couch belonged to my mom's ex-boyfriend. He got new furniture and gave her his old stuff b/c she didn't have much, and then they broke up (good riddance) and then I got married and needed furniture. So, its lasted (just with husband and I) 4 moves, a 2.5 year old with limitless energy and jumping capability, and all kinds of spitup, spills, etc.
I do have pictures...

another learning moment brought to you by
Fortunately we tend to encounter only minor illnesses, but I thought it would be interesting to keep track for a year of all of those little bugs our family seems to get... here's hoping it is a short list...
January 2, 2011 husband, me, oldest daughter and youngest daughter--- pink eye cost: $60 in eye drops
January 6, 2011 oldest daughter--- strep cost: $15 copay and $10 rx
January 19, 2011 oldest daughter---strep cost: $20 over the counters and $10 rx (ENT Appointment made for tosnilectomy)
January 20 &22 middle daughter-- mysterious recurring tummy bug w/fever
cost: had a CREDIT at the pediatrician's office! (bwahaha), so no copay (although we may get a bill later for the shot of antibiotic she got), 1 rx to get filled prednisone- $10, already had leftover albuterol from when she had RSV in Feb.
oh, and we also got the bill in the mail from oldest daughter's tonsillectomy... right at $1000... lovely.
