This past week went pretty smoothly…until we got to Friday.
As my husband so sweetly informed you, my birthday was Saturday, and Friday we headed back to our hometown for a little celebration with family and friends.
WELL since I started a new job this past week, I haven’t really gotten into the flow for keeping up with our housework, and the result was that I had about a million things to do in the short three hours I had between work and leaving town.
The result: in order to save time cleaning up after lunch (scrambled eggs with cheese and toast for both Olivia and I), I ended up wiping all of the crumbs and scrambled egg chunks from Olivia’s clothes and high chair onto the floor…and vacuumed the whole mess up. At least I had enough foresight to then empty the vacuum. I would not want to find out how long eggs keep in your vacuum.
Then my wonderful birthday surprise the next morning: I had forgotten any sort of pants for Olivia. She had her jammies and her snowsuit. So Mike had to make an 8am run to the local Wal-Mart for some pants. And of course they only had bright orange pants, which looked amazing with Olivia’s purple and pink top.
