We haven’t done this in a while, I think, so here goes!
I’m gonna redo Izzy’s room! For a while, I’ve felt slighted (on Izzy’s behalf) that her room isn’t as “cool” as Zoe’s, who could really care less about what her room looks like, and currently only uses it for sleeping. So, I’m going to be doing a very cute, but very cheap, very DIY makeover of Izzy’s room this weekend. Stay tuned!
I dropped my phone. This isn’t exciting news, right? Everybody drops their phones. I’ve dropped mine a ZILLION times, without it leaving so much as a scratch. Until I dropped it in the garage. Shatter City! The screen is badly spider-webbed, but I don’t get an upgrade until November, so I just re-claimed my older version of the phone, which I had been letting Izzy use to play games. I don’t think she’s noticed yet.
Speaking of Izzy, she knows her letters, numbers (can recognize up to 20), shapes, colors, etc. So….what’s next? Site words maybe? I dunno. I’ve been looking into preschool programs for her again, so maybe she’ll be in a class soon. If I get this scholarship for myself, and don’t have to pay college tuition, we’ll use that for HER tuition. So we’ll see.
I really, really, REALLY want that scholarship.
Listen….we use a lot of tissue in my house. Rather, *I* use a lot of tissue in my house. I buy the big 16 roll pack of Angel Soft a good 3 times a month, and it’s usually around $6. Well, this time around, Kroger had the same size package, but in the Scott brand, for $6. It’s usually $10! So, of course, I got it. MAN. LISTEN. i don’t know how I’m going to go back to Angel Soft after using Scott. I’m pretty much always blowing my nose, and I haven’t felt the scratchy, raw feeling the Angel Soft usually leaves since I switched! I’m gonna have to find some coupons!
Zoe is cruising. YES, I said CRUISING. At barely 7 months old. I don’t know why I’m so surprised, because Izzy was the same way, but sheesh! It’s so funny to watch someone so little pull herself up and use the furniture to get around! (and into everything.)
Speaking of little, I am so.freaking.sick of people asking me how old Zoe is, and then going “Oh, she’s so small for ___ months!” O_O That’s not a damn compliment. Keep that shit to yourself, because there is NOTHING wrong with my baby, and she is a perfectly normal size. All babies aren’t meant to be 99th percentile in weight. I’m gonna start just staring at people when they say that. Maybe they’ll realize it’s not ok. Or maybe “You’re only ___?! Gosh, you look so old!”
We need a vacation. BAD. But it has to wait. Because we have responsibilities, namely, those student loans. But, we’re on track to send them a Very Big Check at the end of the year, so hey, maybe next year! I’m thinking the Caribbean again, but Byron keeps talking about the Grand Canyon. o_O. We’ll see.
