Highlights of the Day (Monday 12.19.2005)


1. Steve let me "sleep in" until 7:00 before he woke me to watch Grace since he was leaving for work.

2. Had Hannah tell me she didn't want to wear diapers today. As cute as she looks in her tiny underwear, constantly remembering to remind her to pee in the potty is a real pain in the ass.

3. Cleaned the upstairs kitchen where the litter boxes are. It was trashed and I managed to get it done while the girls played downstairs. Since all of their presents are wrapped and piled in that room, I had to be all stealthy about it and not let them know where I was.

4. Checked my order status and found out my bear collages for Steve would be arriving today. YAHOO!!!

5. Ducked upstairs to dust our bedrooms and heard Grace in the playroom downstairs. Came down to find she had picked up the entire room (and I assure you, there was A LOT to pick up) for no apparent reason other than to make me proud of her. [happy sigh]

6. Told me it had made her tired and hungry, so she made herself a cheese sandwich and "rested" on the couch. Welcome to my world kid...

7. She continued to remind me repeatedly throughout the day that she had done it, and kept asking me if I was still proud of her.

8. Wondered if the fact that my cats keep drinking the water out of the Christmas tree base is in any way harmful to them.

9. Was surprised when Steve got home from work at 1:00, saying he was heading to the mall to do some Christmas shopping.

10. Convinced him that it was totally unnecessary to drive the 30 miles to the mall at this time of year just to get a gift for me (everyone else is bought for already) and that I really am OK with getting nothing from him on Christmas.

11. Opened a new can of Spaghettio's at dinner time and took out every stinking meatball to give to Hannah since that's what she wanted and at this point, if she'll eat anything, I'm happy.

12. Put the meatball-less Spaghettio's into the fridge since no one here (including myself) wanted to eat them at the time.

13. Was annoyed when Hannah proclaimed she was done eating after a whopping three meatballs.

14. Wanted to kiss Grace when she started to feed Hannah the meatballs "like a baby", which Hannah got a kick out of and therefore, prompted her to eat every stinking one of them. Grace rocks.

15. Was thrilled with the bear collages that arrived. Kappy rocks.

16. Became rather titillated when Steve put on some of his new threads to go grocery shopping and looked even more hot than what I had envisioned.

17. Laughed when he first put on the "beautiful flannel" his mom had bought him, and we both decided he looked like a Stetson ad, so he changed into the Aeropostale hoodie I bought him instead.

18. Fell asleep with only 15 minutes left in CSI Miami, so I have NO idea who killed the rapist/real estate agent, dammit.

19. Woke up at 11:15 PM feeling well rested and am now sitting here wondering how long it'll be before I feel tired again.

Yes, it is harmful for animals to drink the water from the Christmas tree!

Alien said...

LOL. Oh, how harmful can it be? It's just plain water. And they lick their own asses for the love of god. What's a little pine sap. ;)

Melissa said...

Ok, but don't say I didn't warn you. LOL

Mary said...

No worries Alien. I just finished watching CSI. Turns out the boyfriend kicked his ass, then the victim/girlfriend smashed him with the statue. And like a good ol' chap, Horatio said he didn't feel it was justified, but he'd be by her side, damnit.

#2 -- I KNOW. I suck at it.

Alien said...

I just hate the whole freakin' process. She probably would've been potty trained like months ago if I made any sort of effort. LOL!

EE said...

Those meatballs look absolutely *disgusting*! They look like balls of turd! LMAO!!!!

And at least Hannah will most likely BE potty trained in the near future. I'm concerned at this point with Haley's adamant NON interest that he won't even be by next fall when I planned on him starting preschool, lol.

Alien said...

Dear All,

Those were not the actual meatballs that Hannah consumed yesterday. Hers looked like much smaller turds. ;)

Love,
Allison

I scrolled down before I read this post this morning and saw the picture of the turdballs and was expecting a highlight about poo before I realized it was a picture of meatballs.

Alien said...

LOL Katherine! Do you REALLY think I'd put a picture of crap in my entry? (Of course, I did have the vagina moth that time, come to think of it...)

EE said...

Ummm, yes, Alien, I do think you would. *snort*

mama_tulip said...

Yes I did, because of the vagina moth, actually.

Alien said...

OMG guys! I would most certainly NOT post shit pics. Dear lord... LOL!

Di said...

Wow, the mall is 30 miles away. I can't even imagine. Within 30 miles, I could probably find that many malls.
tell your husband that his love is your gift all year long (think he will buy it?)
What good mom hasn't picked out all the good stuff for her little one?

EE said...

LOL, my closet mall is 19miles away and it sucks. The "good" malls is 46 miles away. Poor Alien and I living in the sticks. ;)

Janet said...

I live in the country but my mall is still only 11 miles away. I would die if I was 30 miles from a mall!

Alien said...

Thanks Mary for the CSI recap!

Alien said...

Actually, being 30 miles from the mall has its benefits. Truth is, I HATE malls, so it really hasn't been an issue. And when I was working outside the home, I worked right around the corner from the mall, so I could run there during lunch. NOW it sucks and especially this time of year. But I order a lot online. LOL!

EE said...

Janet, do you go to Flatirons or the one in Boulder?
