It's been an interesting weather week around here and Lucy is not happy about that at all. Luckily, the worst of it hit east of us... I can't imagine how panicked she'd be if a storm that bad went directly over us.
We had a fun week, otherwise. We had a great fun visit with Auntie T and Z with lots of good running around and tasty snacks. It was nice to finally meet their new dog, too. On the way home, widgetsworld asked if we could go back to play the next day.
sprocketsspace has learned that asking "why?" after any statement will result in more talking, so we hear that a lot these days. She's also decided that "chase" is the best game and will randomly come up to me and shout "GET ME!" before taking off. It's kind of hilarious.
Our weekend was spent running some errands. We borrowed a bunch of books from the library, mostly picture books though I look forward to the day when I get to actually read books with words again. We also picked out our new floors! Now if only we could decide whether to raise up our sunk-in living room floor or not. widgetsworld and sprocketsspace had a good time "helping" anonymoushubby measure the rooms, though.
This week will be a big one... widgetsworld is venturing into the big world of education! She's been asking all summer to get to go to a "three year old school" so we signed her up for preschool. I think she's going to have a great time. It's a cooperative preschool, too, so I get to go with her sometimes!
The unfortunate (for you all) side to this is the beginning of fundraising... I spent all of those years supporting other people's kids and then quit my job before I could get my turn! And anyone who knows me knows that I'm not really the "door to door rah rah rah" type of fundraiser... so I'll be mentioning what we're selling, briefly, just in case anyone is interested. Feel free to ignore it!
This month's fundraiser is Entertainment books. They're full of coupons to tons of different places and I can get them for any region in the country. $20 gets you the south puget sound version.
There. My work is done.
Anyway, the rest of our upcoming week will probably center around getting ready for the flooring delivery in a couple of weeks. We'll have to stack boxes and boxes of flooring somewhere to acclimate for a month or so. I wonder how big the boxes are... Anyway, anonymoushubby has been spending his Labor day starting the organization of our bonus room. We figure we'll all move in there while the floor gets done so that we're not moving furniture from room to room just to get a place to sleep!
