What is up

November 20th, 2008

I’ve kinda been in a blog writing rut. Not only have I not been in the mood to sort out the various thoughts in my head and things we’ve been doing lately and put it into something that makes sense, but I’m I was also starting to wonder if it really matters. Will anyone really care that much if they don’t have my blog to waste five minutes of their time? I’m seriously not searching for compliments, just thinking out loud here. But then alas, my friends have been blogging and I’m so happy to see what they’re doing and how their weekend was and what they’re out buying … So, OK, I think it must mean something. Also, I kinda forgot until just now how therapeutic it is.

So anyway, I’m back.

I’ll follow up a little on my nephew’s visit last weekend. He’s four so he’s at that age where they talk a lot (at least he does) and they say very funny things sometimes.

First he told me that he wanted to sleep in Ella’s crib with her. Uh, no. That would be a little crowded. And I’m not sure there would be any such thing as sleep happening. Then he said he would sleep in the guest bedroom and he assured me that if he heard Ella wake up in the night he would go make her feel better. Sweet! Where was he a year ago when I needed him?

At one point while we were making cookies he said “I like staying the night with you and I sure love Ella!” That was very sweet. Although later on he told Steve that he should be at work.

Anyway, it’s Thursday now, it’s already time to get ready for this weekend, in which two girlfriends from highschool and their families will be coming over for a visit. Very fun. It’s a little crazy but it seems like every weekend we have plans for a while.

In other news I have this list of things I’ve been procrastinating on and my goal is to to really knock them out this weekend and next week.

Here’s what they are:

1. Order new iPod charger.

2. Order new charger for Shark vacuum.

3. Find charger for electric toothbrush.

Seriously, where the hell are all my chargers?

4. Buy charging station to put iPod and phones in so at least I won’t lose those chargers again.

5. Take pants to be hemmed because I’m short.

6. Find scarf I decided I don’t really like and return. And maybe buy myself a treat for cleaning Steve’s bathroom for him.

7. Return carpet samples and order carpet! Yay. Goodbye imbarrassingly dirty carpet.

    A charging station is a good idea. I got one from Pottery Barn last year and I love it. However, World Market has a cuter one and it is way cheaper. Check it out….I think you have a World Market if Ft. Wayne right?

    I read your blog to Grant he was thrilled to be mentioned. Thanks again for letting he spend the night he loves Aunt Erin, Uncle Stephen, and cousin Ella he mentioned you all in his parayers a couple of nights after the sleep over.
