Ohhh, I may have to give in on the facebook thing!
We'll see. My pattern is to be slow to take on a new technology and then get completely obsessed with it...
Had a fabulous Valentine's Day--one for the record books.
- Started with a trip to the farmer's market for flowers. I do altar flowers for my church about every 5 weeks. This time, they were given in honor of a couple celebrating 62 years of marriage--their kids had given extra money, so I splashed out on orchids, gerbera daisies, and roses. Dd helped choose the flowers and with the arranging--a process not without its stress, but it all worked out.
- Meanwhile, back at the house, the laundry fairy was busy making clean, dryer-warm clothes appear in closets and drawers. And he mowed the lawn and stained a bunch of interior replacement doors, just for good measure. We might even be able to call the door installer soon.
- Dd finally figured out that she really can poop on the potty, not just in a pull-up.
: This is a seriously Big Deal. If your kids potty-trained before their third (or fourth) birthday, you can only guess how frustrating it is to have a kid who knows her body's cues perfectly, but just isn't ready to make it all work. She was proud, I was proud, dh was proud.....she even said, without prompting, that she figured she could do it every time.
- And then we left dd with a sitter, and went out for a romantic meal. The restaurant had clearly lost the reservation, but honored it anyway....
