Random Bits of...Randomness

All my literary brain cells seem to be used up by my
nearly all consuminglabor of love novel right now. Oh, and I did manage a short post over at Doses of Reality. I'm still not back into the whole "politics" scene but hey, it's a start.

So what, other than microwave explosions, is on my mind right now?

- It's been really windy here lately. How windy, you ask? I quote my dear little Tigger: "Ack! This wind is blowing my pants down!" Yes, she really did make a sound like "ack". It could have been "agh". I'm not really up on these onomatopoeia.

- A trip to the big "I" blue box store is in my near future. Yippee! Our new desk project is finally happening.

- Just five days until my birthday. That means 4 more shopping days for those of you concerned. Get.On.It.

- All my girls have a hacking cough that sounds like they really ought to think about giving up that pack a day habit that they don't have. They're not sick, just coughing.

- My brother-in-law is supposed to be back from the Sandy Place today. Hooray for Airman Dan! We've been making up silly songs about his return all day. Love you, Lulu and Dan! Be thankful you can't hear how much.

- Sweet Pea's eczema has responded really well to her new medicine. Except for a new spot that has popped up. Her eczema is kind of like that Whack-A-Mole game: get one down and another pops up.

- Polly has finished her first grade math (Saxon 1). Small tear, little sigh, as I realize that my baby is starting second grade work in some subjects. How is that even possible?

- Sweet Pea's vocabulary is growing. These are the words she says now: "Mama", "Daddy", "Dog" (this occurs multiple times a day), "Ball", "Eat", "Hi", "Bye-bye", "De-too" (thank-you), a word that refers to her oldest sister, "Out", a few not as recognizable attempts and (I am not making this up, as Dave Barry would say) "Croc". That would be referring to footwear, not animals. She gets up in the morning and puts on, by herself, her little red crocs that she got for Christmas. She puts them on again, immediately after nap-time. Sometimes she even gets them on the correct feet.

Never a dull moment...

Just think, in about 24 years she may come over saying "I brought my laundry", "what's for dinner Sunday" and things like that. :-)

Happy Early Birthday! I hope it's wonderful! My Scooter's birthday is coming up next week, too.
