Bits and Bobs

library-284I took this picture outside today using the camera on the new phone.  We have finally arrive in the 21st century!  We put off upgrading to smart phones for so long because neither one of us wanted to deal with switching service providers.  I’m beginning to realize that I have some significant ‘fear of the unknown’ issues.  In any event, with the arrival of the new Verizon android, we decided to take the plunge.  It’s kind of fun.  Now I won’t have to sit in court waiting and doing nothing.  Sweet.    

Anyway I took this picture just a little while before Chase decided to whack Ben, America’s Funniest Home Videos style, with the broom she’s holding there.  She was supposed to be sweeping leaves but I guess that got old.  It doesn’t replace a real camera.  But it gets the job done and substantially better than the camera I had on my last phone.

Nothing much else is going on here.  It’s kind of been a slow start to the week.  Somehow Woofie got left behind at school but all seems quiet on that front.  I was a little worried about how bedtime was going to go down.  I assured her that two of her secondary woofies would just have to do for the night.

I’ve been asked to come up with a costume idea for the holiday show they’re putting on at school. The little girls need skirts that looks like bells.  I’m thinking about bubble skirts with a little bit of something in stuffed in them to give them a little bit more of a round shape.  I’m going to have to take a trip to the fabric store before all of the shiny silver fabric’s all gone.  It is the holiday season after all.

Other than that, I’m just trying to get motivated to get this place in gear.  I’m one sad television moment away from a total emotional meltdown.  It sucks.  I’m feeling more than a little hormonal and overwhelmed.  I need to get my last ultrasound scheduled.  I think I have a crosswise baby now.  I don’t know what’s going on in there but there are definitely two lumpy hard parts.  One on either side of my belly button.  Of course, by definitely I mean I think, maybe.  Ben’s always looking at my face and asking is everything ok?  It’s hard to explain just how crazy it feels.  It’s not painful, just weird.  Wanna see?  It’s all uneven and pointy on one side.  You can see Francis in there too.  I love my little cat.  He used to be totally ambivalent but now that Paddy’s gone he’s totally slid right into this place as lap cat and he’s very good at it.
