Well I don't know about this new design...what was so wrong with the old one?
Lately I've been feeling really run down and needing extra naps. I take more iron, just in case that's what's wrong. Dh is so busy with school it's almost like he's got a full-time job, and I've just been so frustrated with trying to take care of myself, dd and the house...I'm not used to being a full-time SAHM! It's always been dh and I sharing everything. I must have sent dd to her room 10 times yesterday - just didn't know what else to do.
She's always liked going outside and chasing the chickens, but lately she's decided she wants to pick them up, not just run after them. So she runs around yelling "Wait! Wait!" She gets really upset that they don't wait. And there is this neighbor cat that has been hanging around our place, and she catches it and just hugs and pets it for as long as it will stay, but when it finally manages to break free, she screams like I've never heard her scream before. She broke her leg once a while back, and she screams more about the cat running away than she did about that. I wonder where such a little girl gets a huge voice like that? When I hear other children screaming, they sound somehow muted. But then, dh is an opera singer, so he may have passed on his big voice.
In other news, yesterday this neighborhood preschooler smeared a bunch of mud on my car for the second time. He also threw mud at a neighbor's window. So I go over to his house for the 2nd time, trying to get in touch with the parents so he can come clean it up, and I get the same response - "They aren't here. I don't know when they will be back." I'm starting to wonder if this kid has any parents. I have already called CPS on them for letting a 4-year-old roam the neighborhood unsupervised all day, and they told me to call the police if I ever see him near my place again. So I'm going to try one more time to get him to clean my car, or to get the nonexistent parents to do it, before calling the police.
