I’ll be headed out East a week from now, so I’m trying to get my ducks in a row (creepy stalkers, be reminded – I’m leaving behind my husband, and my murderous house-protecting robots! And also my cat. YEAH).
The following things are on our to-do list:
- Exchange Moby, our beloved but ancient 32″ HD TV for a friend’s discarded 36″ equally-massive television set.
- Get a hair cut
- Lose 15 pounds so I look fabulous for the relatives
- Baby-proof (Babby is now able to balance precariously on all fours and make little bunny hops…)
- Transform outdoor garden patch from frightening wilderness to pleasant patio
- Make the dog more like a dog and less like a yeti
Oh, and did I mention that we have a houseguest (one of PH’s old friends who I have never met) coming for a visit on Thursday? So we also have to clean the house. Which is good, actually, because we deperately want a clean house but need a good kick in the pants to tackle such a massive undertaking.
So, today we have done a lot of tidying, but have A LOT left to do (everything remaining involves making a lot of noise, which is why I am blogging. We’re waiting for Babby to wake up from an inexplicably long nap). PH is putting up the baby gate.
I tried to weed the other day, when there was a break in the incessant drizzle of the last couple of months (we’ve had an unusually cold and wet spring) but the grass was so high that I had trouble finding the dandelions at all.
Then Babby started eating dirt and I called it a day.
PH is going to weed whack, rain or no, later today. Then I can weed and Babby can play outside… hopefully with less eating.

I have it on good authority that grass is delicious. Or something. =)
So I hear. I remain unconvinced.
Heh. Twice in a row, I read that line as “I tried weed the other day”, and both times my thought was “Only just now she’s trying it — oh, wait, TO weed. Okay, right then.”
(Me? No, no weed. Just tired. We also have no weeds. Daisy likes to eat dandelions.)
LOL! At least Babby didn’t try weed(s).
…Can I borrow Daisy?

Your weight goal and final baby picture are especially awesome 🙂
Well, you know what they say – set your goals unreachably high so you’ll have a good excuse for not attaining them…

All our babies ate dirt, and snails, and worms, and mud, and leaves, and slugs, and sand and ants, and my last one even drank from puddles.
I tend to clean when visitors are coming too. Call it motivation. 🙂
Good for the immune system, right?
That’s exactly what I was going to say. We have already discussed letting the tadpole eat dirt (along with doing many other “dangerous” things).

I’m impressed that Babby stays on the blanket. Thing 2 has to be locked in a cage…er.. I mean set in the pack and play….. when we are outside or he crawls all over the yard. This is not good because of my fear of surprise attacks from thistles and dog poo.
Ha! He doesn’t. Kid can’t even crawl and he still managed to get off of the blanket several times!
grass and dirt are Vi’s fav!!!
2 lbs before they’re 2. That’s the rule about eating dirt.
I like it!
