How about a few quick takes from the last week to get you all caught up on life?
In short, I thought the Revival was just eh. I wasn’t super impressed with the trailers so I didn’t have super high hopes to begin with anyway.
Rory’s acting was painfully bad most of the time, however I felt like the towns people did a pretty good job carrying the show though and bridging the time gap. I found myself wondering how much time each episode had left for most of four episodes. So I can’t say I’ll be re watching them any time soon.
Fall was my favorite though, since everyone finally seemed to get back into the swing of the Gilmore Girls I used to know.
A couple weeks ago we had family pictures take and we got them back this last week. It was a lot of “I’ll give you a treat if you smile” and a few meltdowns. But we finally have family pictures with all four of us together.
Black Friday, we got the bright idea to go shopping when we got back from traveling for Thanksgiving. I mean, all things considered the kids did pretty good. They did about how they usually do when we try to take them clothing shopping.
But Jordan needed a suit and the outlet store was having a nice sale on suits. Turns out Jordan is going to need a tailored suit, because they don’t make one in his size. And they were out of the size that could have been tailored. So we didn’t actually buy him a suit. Womp, womp.
I did get the kids $5 jammies for next year though. So it wasn’t a total bomb.
So Many Lines
I went in to renew the registration on my car before the end of November, like a good tax paying citizen, only to find out there was a typo that needed to be fixed before I could renew.
The year they had listed for our family car was a year older than it actually is. So a trip with two small children in tow to the County Assessors office. Wait in line there (with two children) only to find out that I’d need to go upstairs to the Collections office to get my paid receipt. Wait in line there to find out ….
That this date typo effected not just this past year, but the past three years. And we owed three years worth of back taxes (over $100) before we could renew the car. Who knew paying your taxes on time every year could result in back taxes?
I forgot my checkbook and didn’t want to pay the 2.5% convenience fee. So I came back the next day, only to wait in line (with two kids) to pay via check. Then head back to the DMV (wait in a 10 deep line with 2 kids) to get those two stupid stickers for our license plate.
There went two days of our week.
Due to car repairs (did I tell you about those?) and back taxes (even though we paid what they said every year, on time. NOT bitter at all…) we didn’t have much extra spending money for cyber monday deals. I did snag some adjustable waist jeans for Noah for $4.80/pair and a few tops for the kids for next Fall’s capsule wardrobe. You can get my checklist here, if you’re so inclined.
Sorry if this is a lot of complaining, but this week was just one thing after another. Jordan lost our car keys. Luckily, I had our spare, which was recently put into retirement because it kept breaking off in the ignition. So basically, it wasn’t a good option.
My normal keys have all kinds of important things like my library card and my fuel saver card.
We tore the house apart looking for them for three days. No luck. Then on the night of the third day, we found them. Tucked under a bag, under the Christmas decoration box, under our bed. Who would have known? Its such a relief to have found them though!
That’s all for now!
What did you think of Gilmore Girls? Disappointed? Totally in love? In-between?
