So, I was home for the day. No errands, no school run, no lunch dates, just home taking care of tiny tots. So, what did I do? I think I am crazy. I painted the trim in my living room. I figured the kids were in the room chilling, I might as well be productive. So in between loads of laundry, I painted. In addition, I created a new dilemma for myself. What's new, right? I need to get this room DONE this weekend. Should be interesting. I have no idea what colors I want in here. Awesome. At least the trim is white now, right? Nothing like creating a mess to force things to get done!
Since I missed my Love List yesterday... here are some thing I've been loving lately....
- Ben's happy and surprised face when he walks in the door and can smell a dinner he knows he is going to love. I don't even think he knows that I notice it.
- My heart leaps with pride and joy each time I listen to Myles reading this week. It is amazing and simply so cool to see your child learning and growing.
- I was perusing Craig's List this past weekend and found some really interesting things for sale. For instance... a $70,000 antique tennis racket. It was not a typo - because they listed it again at the same price the next day. If they can sell that in Kalamazoo, Michigan...good for them. I also saw listings for "colectables" and "clectables". Awesome. Lastly, I thought about the antique unicycle, but opted to pass. If you want it, you can have it.
- Jillian can officially be named a bed pack rat. That girl currently has in her bed...six blankets, eight books tucked into a little nook, eleven dolls, and six stuffed animals. I counted. She sleeps in a toddler bed!! I've been contemplating a twin bed for her - imagine what she could fit into there!! What is even more amazing, she has no trouble falling asleep. I don't have to remind her to stop playing with those toys. She just wants them with her. Adorable.
