WHOO. I tell you, Readers, there have been some Things That Have Happened since I last posted. Let’s do a quick rundown, shall we?
1) On Friday, one of Baby Girl’s sweet daycare ladies said, and I quote: “She’ll be walking like a pro within two weeks.”
Let me just tell you that it is now Sunday night, and in the past two days we have gone from tentative steps to FULL-ON SPRINTING. As of this morning, our 11 1/2 month old Baby Girl can TODDLE QUICKLY ABOUT THE HOUSE.
Baby Girl, if she were a LOLcat.
The whole situation is reminiscent of the Breakers from The Forest of Hands and Teeth, except that Baby Girl is not, to my knowledge, a zombie.
Anywho. Moving on.
2) Rob and I (should I have a cute nickname for my husband? Is it bad to just call him by his name? I don’t really care if people know his name, I just don’t want anyone stalking Baby Girl. Not that I want my husband to be stalked, but he can defend himself. She can’t.)
Okay, that parenthetical was so long that I really just have to start over.
Rob and I have decided that TOMORROW IS BACKSPLASH DAY at Casa Riley! We have ooboodles (technical term) of gift cards from Home Depot, which I got for my birthday . . . which was in June. So, clearly, we are ON TOP OF THINGS.
But anyway, we’re both off work this week (Hallelujah and Amen) and we’ve decided that, you know, five months is ALLLLMOST long enough to put off a household project, so we might as well just go ahead and put in the backsplash. I’m not sure what kind we’re going to get, but our countertop has some kinda funky colors in it that make the mosaic-type backsplash difficult to pull off because of clashing. So I’m thinking something like this:
Not my kitchen. Also not my red cabbage.
But we’ll see. We might get to the Home Depot tomorrow and come home with something entirely different. As long as it’s still a backsplash and not some crazy light fixture or lawn ornament, I’ll be okay with it.
And 3) GUESS WHO IS READING THE HUNGER GAMES SERIES?
He refused to show his face. Shame, ’cause he’s cute.
That’s right ladies, I officially have THE COOLEST HUSBAND EVAR. And y’all, this man does not read YA. He enjoys Lord of the Rings and The Godfather. He does not, as a general rule, read other things. Although he did love Harry Potter, so I guess it makes sense that he likes Hunger Games.
In case you missed my tweets, here are some comments he’s made so far (no spoilers):
“It’s 8:00 in the morning and there’s no coffee yet? What is this, District 12?”
“This song makes me think of Katniss and Peeta.” (Referring to the “We found love in a hopeless place” song)
“Dude. I just read the part about the dummy with “Seneca Crane” written on it. That was hilarious.”
So, I think it’s safe to say he’s enjoying it. I seriously can’t wait to go see the movie with him!
How has your weekend been?
