A Bullety, Updatey, Paragraph Thingy
There are two things she's currently doing that melt my heart. The first is that she has finally started calling me mommy - but the really cute part? She says Me Mommy. Kind of like MY mommy. Adorable.
The second is when you ask her what her name is and she roars like a lion. I love it. But then when you say "Can you say Ellery?", she now says "Ellwy!" I may die from the cuteness of it all.
I've got freelance assignments up the wazoo. Both writing and photography. The writing has some tight deadlines, so it's hard to have time for anything else. But it's cash baby, sweet sweet cash.
Even without the freelance, we seem to be doing amazingly with money. I have no idea how this is possible - it just seems that lately even after paying all our bills and spending it here and there, we've still got a bunch left. I think this is the first time in my adult life that I haven't stressed over money - it's a nice feeling.
The other day we ran out of q-tips. I don't know if any of you remember a particularly riveting post where I explained my inability to find and purchase them on my own - but essentially it said that q-tips reside in some parallel universe that I cannot locate.
However...the other day we needed them, I went to Shoppers Drugmart, and I found them. Just like that. Boom!
It's been raining here for what seems like months. I don't ever remember a summer that was so shitty and rainy. My kid has been in her kiddie pool twice this summer - that is so not cool.
So hey, Mother Nature? Could you smarten the heck up? This is Canada, not England.
