Kids, softball and new cars

I havent posted anything since Monday cause my life has been so busy I havent had the energy to think. We had our "big brother" come through the apartments. My boss was so happy that they couldnt find anything wrong with our files. TO bad the same cant be said about the apartments.
After that stressful situation was taken care of I had softball to worry about. I know all I am is an assitant coach that is only going to be paid to drive the bus. That doesnt mean I dont care about the girls and what happens to them. These girls have really become people that I see and feel connected to.
We all joke around and have fun but they also know that I will get mad at them. We havent really had a much pratice as we want but are as ready as we can be for our first game. Come tuesday we will put on our uniforms for the first time and go play our arch rivals, Flippin Lady Bobcats.
Funny part about that for me, I live in Flippin and my kids go to school there. I am helping to coach the Cotter Lady Warriors. Irony is a word that comes to mind here. I know this is proably wrong but I have had the chance to see the bobcats pratice. Just a little James Bond thing going. Got to get a edge somewhere, that team is good.
My hubbie called from his national guard duty yesterday. "Hey think I found another car for us." With the 3rd kid on the way I need 3rd row seating. My parnets had 3 of us so I know what happens to the smallest or outnumbered one of the sibilings. They get beaten up on all road trips. Just ask my little brother about the long ride to Florida.
Anyway, he thinks he has found exactly what we need. We are both totally against Minivans so get that stupid thought out of your head. A nice Dodge Durango is what he is looking at. I can handle that. I am a country girl and if I had the money would have a nice nice nice Chevy Avalanche out in the driveway.
SO it looks like I may just being driving 2 hours away for me to get a newer car. It sucks that I have to go that far just to get a good deal but hey I am not rich. That is just one of those small town things that you have to put up with. I feel that is a good give for all the other good things I get from raising my family in an area that i feel safe in.
So now that you know my weekend go out and do something. Dont just sit there on your butt. Go!!

I have to go out and pay my utility bills. LOL The Dodge Durango is nice. My co-worker had one. Then she got custody of her twin grand-babies and got a minivan. LMAO I have a Dodge Intrepid. I love Dodge. If I could a afford a new car I'd get a Charger or a Caliber. Even the Avenger looks good, just a little small for me. Good luck with the softball!
