Just another day in Paradise

So, I was cold this morning, due to the fact that my blanket didn't get dried in time and I didn't want to stay up any later. Though I did make sure that Scott's blanket was washed and dried. And in all reality, I probably could have gotten it before I went to bed after staying up to finish reading "Earning Eternity" by Josi Kilpack. I sobbed at least twice reading! I really shouldn't read books where kids die! I think there should be a warning on some books that says, "Do not read if hormonal, pregnant or have a newborn, unless need to cry uncontrollably." Wouldn't that be fantastic? So, I stayed up late (totally my own fault), but my girls (Kira and Emma) had no problem getting me up at 6:30 this morning. Don't they know it's summer? Yikes! I planned to just get them watching PBS so I could go back to sleep, but no dice. Emma is rather attached to me. The good news is that I have plenty of time to do this and everything else! I'll just be tired and very cranky the rest of the day. I have to keep cleaning the house to prepare for the big yard sale on Saturday. I'm going to go room by room through everything, to get rid of lots, because my husband says that we have too much stuff. This coming from the man who has six fish tanks and a ton of junk! Nice! Maybe that will work in my favor. HHmmmm... Since we're planning on moving to Wichita come Fall '10, we need to start paring down! For everything I have to get rid of, he should too. Sounds good to me! My kids are naturally messy, so I'm not sure that only having one toy and five books is really gonna keep the mess down. It's amazing what they can do with just a few things! This morning for instance, I found three DVDs in the VCR, 2 which belonged into an empty case that I returned to the library yesterday, so I'll have to bring those in. I didn't even watch them! So, I thought they were in there. I really should have known better that not checking before leaving the house! We'll probably have a Hannah Montana marathon, since I got her shows fromt he Library. I love putting holds on at the Library. It sure saves me time and energy! It's like shopping online and just going in to pick up what I want. It's great!
Well, Maher-shalal-hash-baz (Emma) just walked in completely naked trying to put one of Leah's diapers on. She didn't want a Pull-up, no. She wanted a regualr diaper. Fun kiddo! She's wanting to assert herself and do everything she wants, but she can't talk to communicate that! I hope the whole signing thing starts going better. She doesn't seem to be able to use her fingers well enough to make a lot of signs, so then I have to figure out her version of signs. Maybe I should let Kira keep talking for her! She might be right. Or not.
Anyway, back to work!
