A couple of days ago we got a toddler bed for Monkey...mostly so that she can get up and play with her sister without me having to get out of bed to get her. Lazy, I know, but I'm tired in the mornings. Anyhow, she seems to like it. It's unceremoniously up against the crib for now...hard to fit 2 toddler beds, a crib, a bookshelf, and a wardrobe all into the same room.
On my Mom's birthday, Chick and I made cupcakes & a cake. The cake was in a silicone pan that I have to get rid of because it has an odor & gives the cakes a strange taste. So we kept the cake & gave away the cupcakes (I'd intended the opposite). Chick had a good time putting the muffin cups in different patterns.
I think it was yesterday--Monkey brought me a wet washcloth that she got out of the laundry or from the rod on the front of the stove. Sometimes she brings us random things, so I just said "thank you" and took it from her. Then she pointed and tapped at a spot on my pants. She seemed contented enough when I rubbed the spot off with the washcloth.
I saw another SeeHere.com deal on MoneySavingMom, so I spent too much time revising Chick's birthday party invite & making Thank You Note's to match (the revision was putting patterned backgrounds in) & ordering them. But this way I'll save on printer ink & don't have to try to round up 5x7 envelopes. So 10 invites & 14 thank you's for $2.49. Not bad, and I was happy with the quality of my Christmas order, and the shipping/turnaround time was super fast...like, 3 days, I think.
After that, I did a little bit of design work & sent the invoice to my boss, so layout is DONE for the month.
While I was working on the computer, the girls played with dress up clothes and both seemed to have a great time.
We had a lunch break in there somewhere, which was pure joy because my kitchen is really clean...thank you, flylady. I have a ways to go before I'm really "entrenched" in the system, but the few things that I've started doing are really making a difference for me.
I spent a bit of time researching cell phone plans...I've finished my contract & want something that costs about the same but has more minutes... T-Mobile has that, but HH says he's never heard anything good about their coverage or service. Any thoughts from anyone else?
Lastly, I cut Chick's hair. Last year it was so cute. This year it's too short (and not shaped as well). I know it'll grow, but her 3 year pictures are scheduled for the 24th.... I'm totally remorseful. I didn't take pictures...maybe tomorrow.
Anyhow, tomorrow I'll have a bunch to do for 8 is Great, as well as a dinner/planning mtg for my parents' upcoming 50th anniversary bash, as well as getting sharing time squared away. But in my spare time I hope to do another cruise posting about Roatan, Honduras. So stay tuned : )
(Here is a little video of Chick "reading" from "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See?" By the way, yesterday was laundry day. Can you tell?)
