C is for Chris, Christmas, Computer, Cold, Crayons, Color, Caulk, Crochet, Countdown
Chris – working a 12 hour shift work schedule right now (really 14 because you need to add the commute), also taking three classes, being a good friend to a guy having a hard time and still finding time to hang out with the family. I’m glad and hope it lasts!
Christmas – I need to make my list! I usually get started fairly early and am thinking if I want to make something for someone, it needs to start now. Of course my list gets written and rewritten a handful of times so maybe it’s good that I haven’t started yet.
Computer – the laptop rocks, I love it and want to take it everywhere with me. Except Chris needs to use it sometimes. Like all weekend because that is his only time off. He needs his own computer. Darn desktop that crashed.
Cold – I’m sick. I’ve been sick for a few days now. The Target pharmacist told me I could take sudafed since I am in my second trimester and it did make me feel better earlier today. I just need to take it as recommended so I don’t have moments of feeling bad and having to get the meds back into my system. I’m sleeping well at night and hopefully that keeps up.
Crayons – I showed the kids our school supply section in the closet yesterday. They were amazed at how many boxes of crayons we have! In my own defense some are from last year which means I shouldn’t have bought as many this year. But I usually give crayons and a coloring book as birthday gifts to kids so I should just restart that practice again.
Color – We need to pick paint colors soon. Or now. Yesterday would have been better though. I think we are going to start with Alice’s room, then do Jake’s and follow the flow of the house after that. We have to do something at least once a month, or even twice a month, so if we have to move in a few months it’ll be good to go.
Caulk – I just walked by the pantry and forgot I need to caulk the seams in the boards around it. It’s the little things that just add up!
Crochet – I had to take the blanket I started apart today – I miscounted while watching tv and added three stitches a couple of different times. That messed it all up! But I worked on it today and am back up to the six rows that I had. And I’m being diligent about counting!
Countdown – the kids birthdays are soon! One this week, the birthday party over the weekend and then another birthday next week. I found the kind of cake I am going to make for each of them and need to remember to call to schedule a picture taking moment.
