~ Came downstairs with the girls to find Steve already awake and the coffee already brewed. Thank you god (and Steve).
~ Volunteered the girls and I to go to the bank in the next town for Steve to deposit money. (Because I'm sweet like that... Snort!)
~ Ran to the gas station, the bank, and then home.
~ During this trip, I came within inches literally of slamming into a deer with my car. Thank god for anti-lock brakes is all I have to say. Stupid fucking deer.
~ Talked the girls into finger painting instead of going outside because it was still so early and really cold.
~ Put Hannah down for her nap and headed outside with Grace.
~ While playing football, went running at Grace like I was going to tackle her and about 2 feet in front of her, I slid on the mud, sliding right into her, knocking her legs out from under her, and sending both of us sliding across the muddy yard. We frickin' rule.
~ Watched Grace accidentally clock the neighbor's dog in the head with her feet when the stupid dog tried to run under the swing that she was currently swinging on. DOH!
~ Laughed when the dog ran back to the neighbor's house and wouldn't come back down to us. Oops.
~ Spent a good portion of the afternoon playing with a huge PVC sewage pipe (a clean one mind you) that Steve brought home from a job site last summer. Grace would crawl in it and I'd push her down the hill. Hours of entertainment.
~ Grace pushed me down the hill one time in the pipe and I almost threw up. The kid likes this? Freak.
~ Woke Hannah up from her nap and we went back outside.
~ Watched the girls play for two hours making "soup" out of ice water and mulch, wondering the entire time how their fingers weren't freezing.
~ Coaxed them back inside where I ate a fluffernutter for dinner. Yup, we're really that out of food. [sigh]
~ Steve and I finally picked a faucet for the kitchen and told his dad to order it (his dad is a plumber). Good thing since we NEED it here by next Monday for when the granite comes (they cut the holes in when they install the countertops).
~ Bit my tongue for an hour while Steve threw Grace around and wrestled with her and chucked her around like a football. Dude, she's four and she's a girl. For the love of god..
~ Had an "I told you so" moment when Grace got slightly injured and then cried because Steve wouldn't keep chucking her around like a ragdoll. The dude never learns.
~ Had both girls in their jammies by 5:30 hoping by some odd miracle, they'd crash by 7:00.
~ They didn't crash by then, but they were amazingly well behaved the entire evening, allowing me to read more of that book displayed over there on the left, that's just begging to be changed.
~ Got to watch Doug Wilson on Trading Spaces. Mmmmmm....
~ Wondered what the hell happened to John, the dude that won the "new designer" role. I saw him on like 2 shows and then he was gone. WTH? I loved him.
~ Was also excited t see Jimmy from Town Haul filling in as one of the carpenters. He' cool.
~ Am embarrassed to admit that I'm about to go make some Ramen noodles at 10:30 at night because I'm that hungry. I'd say a grocery store trip is in order for tomorrow...
