The Song Remains

This kid. You put out all these mats, all these blankets, all these cushy minky things for your child to play comfortably on . . . . . . and where does he insist on spending every waking moment? The hard, cold, fake wood floor. (And reworking his daddy’s soldering projects while he’s at it.) […]

Minion of Sandwich

We have to get this Disney review done. If for no other reason, that the pictures, which upload to the magical cloud, are so far down the “loading more” at this point that they’re just about to disappear into magical cloud oblivion. I was super-productive today, though, which also means “avoided Disney entry like the […]

Useless Door

So, we have this useless door in our house. From what I can tell, it was always a useless door. It opens to a dead end of the patio, and to get to it, you pass the kitchen door . . . so everyone uses the kitchen door. I never saw Mimi or Paw use […]

AntHill

This week, two things were on my calendar. One didn’t even require me leaving the house, but that was enough. Yesterday (Thursday) was a doctor’s appointment, which was just as much a waste of time as you’d imagine.  I started typing to you about all the ways and whys she is a useless runaround, but […]

Neverending House Projects

I am all over the place with house projects right now. Mimi’s bedroom has long been the storage space.  All the leftovers and things to catalogue have been sitting in there, and slowly the pile dwindled until it was pushed into JUST the closet (and it is just a little closet, since this house was […]

Vaporized Prunes

Low-key weekend. Knobby finished the soffit work in the kitchen . . . now I’m sanding down wood putty and getting it ready to paint.  Looking forward to putting the kitchen back in order. While his tools were so convenient, I was able to convince him to hang some hooks in the Laundry Room . […]

Doctors Appointment and Random Houses

I have this annoying sinus headache.  It’s more of an ache on my head than a headache. Take your tube of lipgloss, push it into the arch between your eyebrow and your nose, and that’s how it feels. Sinus pressure. Yay. —- Went to the pediatric urologist today . . . an appointment I’d been […]

Speculation

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here . . . I’m suddenly wishing I hadn’t done that bit of revenge-shopping this past week when Knobby stayed up very very late playing video games. That’s what happens, you know, when the husband decides to sit at his computer yelling into a headset microphone at his friends in […]

Almost Done

Poor Minion had to go for shots on Monday, and his little chunky thighs are still marked and bruised.  Sad face. He’s now 16 pounds, seven ounces, and is seven inches longer than he was when born.   She wants us to start real foods in a week or two.  We stopped on the way […]

Just Six Little Buttons

So . . . If you look to the left in this picture from the last entry, you’ll see the kitchen.   Then this weekend happened. “Just six little buttons in the wall”, he said. I was tired of all the remotes at the door.  You always had to stick your arm out of the kitchen […]
