Secondly, did I tell you that I only have one dog now? An awesome friend watched both dogs over our Christmas break and as a reward their family got to choose a dog to keep (shhhh...don't tell her that that is a lousy reward ; ) . It really has lowered the stress level in the house and we miss Boots a lot, but life with just Swiper is pretty sweet. His personality has changed a little in Boots' absence. For one he likes being around us more. For two he hasn't tried to escape. And for three...he gets real lonely and sad at night. We hear Boots is happy and has a little friend who plays with him all day and he even gets to sleep in his friends bed. I bet he couldn't be happier!
Thirdly. Sheesh can I just have the baby already? Holy Moses pregnancies last forever.
Fourth. I just made an entire batch of chocolate chip cookies, because I want ONE.
Fifth. I am having Gwen drama. She totally still needs naps and totally won't take them and then she won't go to bed and the only words out of her mouth are, "no no no no no no no" and the occasional insult [ "Why aren't you angry at anyone yet today" comes to mind]. It's stressing me out. Do they have parent/child counselors? I sat down to talk to her about it the other day and her solution to our issues was that maybe "Daddy could stay home and in charge us". I've always thought he would be a great stay at home parent..... : )
Sixthly: Today after church Blaine and I were standing in a classroom talking to some people. Well, I was talking to some people and Blaine was waiting patiently by the door...when someone in our ward walked by, looked right at Blaine and said, "I really like your hair, it is SO CUTE!". And then I laughed for twenty minutes. Blaine really does have cute hair (and we found out after like ten minutes of analyzation that she was talking to a YW also in the room.) Anyway it was hilarious. And for those who are curious it was our bishops wife, who I adore, and who made my day by making me think someone told Blaine his hair was "so cute".
Seventhly: I had a great Christmas. Sometimes you get gifts that make you think, "hmmm...does my husband know me at all?" Like the time I got three stepping stools on one birthday, all from the same husband. But then there are Christmasses like this where he scored big! I got a soft white robe, diaper bag, perfume, and beef jerky. It was awesome!
Mmmmm....the end. Castor oil anyone?
