1- The giant pile of laundry that covers, oh, my entire 2nd story. After two trips to NY, and 3 weeks of generally living in this house without setting any time aside to do general chores (like occasional loads of laundry) my washer got plugged up with little kid socks, a bunch of change, rocks, acorns, buttons, little pieces of toys, and hunks-o-lint. I couldn't catch up on laundry because I couldn't do the laundry if I wanted to. So last night, Bryan finally had some time to go fishing in the drain line and fixed it. Since then, um, 24 hours ago, I have been washing clothes.
2- Chase will not keep his fricking patch on his fracking eye!!! GAH!!! He was doing it without too much complaint, but we upped the ante to three hours a day, and he has decided that this plan no longer is acceptable. He tears that thing off every single flipping time I turn around, and now he no longer delicately peels it off so that I can re-stick in on. He tears that sucker off and crumples it up, then hides it in a corner. I am not giving up the battle, but I foresee glasses in his future. And I am about ready to duct tape that sh*t onto his head.
3- Ian moves like molasses whenever I need him to move quickly. Like when we are late for something (always) or when it is bedtime. And then he plays it off all cute, so I have to feel really bad about hollering at him to get into his pajamas because he was hiding behind a couch to scare me or something. The kid just wants attention...but why oh why does he only want it when I have a billion time sensitive things to do and it is a school night?!??!
4-Guy threw like 3 plates of food on the floor today. Awesome.
1- I had time to take Ian to a Kung Fu class with his friend Colin today and he totally loved it. I loved watching him learn something new and enjoy time with his friend :)
2- I did not overeat or snack mindlessly today...a pastime that I have been working on way too much lately and need to control again.
3- Chase pointed to the pictures in his book tonight and named them.
4- The pharmacist was out of Chase's prescription this evening, but he gave me enough for free so that it would last me until it was restocked.
5- All the boys had GREAT appetites this evening (probably because they were starving, but whatever) and ate pasta with red sauce and meatballs, and green beans.
6- Bryan got me this new computer :) I like that he thought about what I needed and acted on it. Love!
