Maya got a handful of Tom's curry a couple of weeks ago. He got it away from her quick.
She is very interested in food too - she was watching Tom eat a banana today, eyeing it as it went from hand to mouth. He waved it around and she lost interest - till it went back to his mouth. And I swear she has gotten mad when we have refused to share popcorn with her. Hannah, though, is pretty happy to just nurse. She is more into exploring toys. Maya doesn't have much interest in toys. Funny the differences in babies.
Well, looks like the heating element on our dryer is going out. I have been telling Tom for months it was going, but he kept blaming it on me drying stuff on the delicate setting. Until he went to dry a load of diapers. Then he informs me that the heating element on the dryer is going out. Really?
So he is down there now looking at the dryer to see if it can be fixed, which of course sparked a huge fight over the amount of crap in the basement and the *idiotic* things I save. Just because he doesn't understand the importance of an object doesn't make it idiotic. I, for instance, have no earthly idea why the man is keeping two boxes full of parts from 30-year-old speakers that he dismantled five years ago, but have I said anything? Finally I just told him to get rid of whatever he wanted to get rid of and don't tell me about it. He's the one who will have to search down replacements if he offloads something I need.
Ok, 'nuff of that. Phew.
Well, the potential renter for my mom's condo never called me today to have me meet him there for a second look with his daughters. So I went ahead and ran a CL ad on the place, because I don't want to miss out on potential renters for the last weekend of the month. I got a response already from a woman who, according to her Facebook page, is an accounting supervisor at Seattle Public Utilities. Um, can we say fabulous potential networking opportunity for my husband? We are meeting her tomorrow to show her the place. Wouldn't it be funny if this ended up leading to a job for Tom too? Interesting how NOT getting what we think we want is sometimes the better deal, isn't it?
