Can I win that lottery now?

Oh wait, I guess that means I’d have to actually buy tickets…

I’ve been thinking more and more lately about how handy it would be to have a mini-van.  I’m having a diffcult time imagine being able to really travel anywhere with 2 kids and all the stuff that goes with said kids (and ourselves) in our little 4-cylinder vehicles.  D.’s Vibe is ok, but really doesn’t have all that much space, even when we travel with just the 3 of us.  It’s usually filled to the brim every time we take a road trip or go camping.  I really like to travel, and I suspect the lack of space is going to limit our family trips. 🙁

Now would be the time to buy, with the automobile industy bringing down prices and interest rates lower than usual, but we also have to think about the additional expenses coming up with a new little one in daycare 5 days a week.  Daycare for 2 kids full time is gonna come to $1400/month.  We could rent a nice apartment and hire someone to live there and take care of our kids for that much money!  It’s just insane…  So alas, I’ll just keep dreaming about how nice it would be to not have to worry about money, just like the majority of the rest of the world…

So Ronan came down with a stomach bug yesterday, the first one he’s ever had.  Poor kiddo was in shock the first time he tossed his cookies, he had no idea what was happening!  We’re still waiting to see if he’s really doing better today.  Yesterday he couldn’t keep anything solid down, but Pedialyte stayed down ok.  He had a small piece of banana earlier, so far so good…

Yesterday D. & I accidently bought 2 iRobot Roomba vacuums on Woot.  Guess perhaps we should come to a decision between us before we decide to buy, no matter how fast the Woot-off progress bar is moving and how slow we’re texting each other…  D. very rarely makes impulse purchase decisions, so I figured I was safe.  Anyone wanna buy a Roomba 535 for $150? 😉  I also picked up a little camcorder that runs on AA batteries and has a built in USB adapter.  It doesn’t have the best resolution, but it’s much smaller and easier to handle than our bigger camcorder.  So I figured perhaps it would coax us to take more video of the kiddos while they’re still little. 🙂
