At this moment:
Tiny is wearing green sunglasses with a flowers on them. Now she’s screaming and throwing them. She’s a fickle beast.
Z is coloring in a Hello Kitty activity book with 1 dark green crayon that she suspects isn’t actually green. “Mama, are you even sure this is green?” It is.
I need to get off my duff and tidy up my house. The maintenance guys are coming over to touch up the paint on our walls (for free! Score!) and while it doesn’t quite look like a tornado hit, it at least resembles the results of a strong wind.
I need to get off my duff and CLEAN my house. Book club is here tonight, and, well, the place needs to look better for the RS ladies than for the maintenance guys. (That’s saying nothing about either group, but the maintenance guys really don’t care. And the RS ladies will be here longer. And conversation flows better in a clean, yummy smelling house. Or something.)
I’m excited about the little blue leotard on the counter; the one that signifies that Z is visiting a dance class tomorrow to “try it out”. Woohoo!
Tiny is pulling every single thing out of my bag. When she encounters a zipper she fusses at me until I open it so that she can get at the things inside. At least she’s occupied.
I’m loving these pictures that B took using his new flash : Z as a rapper, more Z, Tiny
I’m enjoying The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo which I started last night.
I’m also enjoying this post, which really struck me today.
I am hopeful that it won’t rain today.
I really need to go at least take a shower before the maintenance guys get here, so I’m going now.
What’s going on at your house at this moment?
I was going to tell you that one of my kids favorite church bag toys is a an old cosmetic bag that I stuff with all sorts of tiny things (not too tiny, depending on the child). Mostly finger puppets and little people, etc. They love to open the zipper and pull them out.
Just something to think about. 🙂
I’m catching up on blogging and getting ready for a girls’ night out 🙂
