This and That
Thank you cards are a pain in the ass. However, since I appreciate everything we've received to celebrate Ellery's birth, of course I know they are a necessary thing. But damn...I'm on card number 63 with a whole other stack to go. Boo.
We got a new couch and chair last week. They are wonderful and super comfy...and I feel like a 5 year old because when I sit on them my feet don't touch the floor.
Ellery hates to sleep. Hates it. Does she want to sleep? Oh yes, in fact she can barely keep her eyes open half the time. But does she sleep? Oh no. She will fight tooth and nail not to fall asleep, especially during the day. I laughed out loud when reading that most babies should sleep an average of 16 hours a day...HA! If she gets 2 hours made up of cat naps throughout the day, I'm lucky. She is a nosy little being.
We're going to Calgary at the end of August for a week. I am so excited. We haven't been there since we moved 7 years ago and I miss it so much, I would love to move back someday. It is a breathtaking city and it broke my heart to leave it when we did. Plus, you know...Ikea is calling my name.
One of the strangest things has happened since I've been "unemployed". It seems we have more money now than when I was getting a full paycheque. When I was making nearly double what I am now, we were barely scraping by most of the time...but now that I make a pathetic little cheque every two weeks, we seem to have extra cash all over the place. Who says work gets you further ahead?
I'm what you might call impatient. Surprising, I know (lol) but I do tend to be that way. One of the things I'm most impatient about is my hair. Like when I decide I like a hair cut, mine has to be cut that way right now. Forget waiting till next week, or even tomorrow, I need it done now. One of the drawbacks about that is that I often hack all my hair off, then end up regretting it the next day. I do that a lot - you'd think I'd get smarter about it, but I don't.
Anyhoo, right now my hair is actually getting pretty long...and I'm starting to get that itch to cut it off, just when I'm starting to be happy with the length. Is every woman like this or just me?
It's the Bahama Mama's (Monica's) 28th birthday today! Happy Birthday best friend, even though you don't read my blog!
