It's been a very stressful week and I don't really have much to say. So I'm going to make a list of things that make me happy in the hopes that I can force myself to think positively.
This morning with Aislynn
Know how some kids are terrified of thunder and lightening? Not my kid. Every time there was a crack of thunder (and there were some loud and scary ones.), she would giggle and squeal with delight. Then when it stopped, she would look at me as if to say, "Mummy! Again! Again, again, again, again!!" Which would then make me laugh and we would lay in bed laughing. It was hilarious.
This woman inspires me to make this apartment into a home. I can't even put into words how awesome I think this person is and I don't even know her. I think she's pretty cool and you should all head over to her blog and tell her who sent ya.
Starting this blog, I didn't really know what to expect. I'm really enjoying it though. I kind of like having my thoughts all in one place. I never had a diary growing up. Wait, that's not true. I started about 20 diaries growing up, but then I would get bored of it and give up to start the next project. I've always got some kind of project in my mind that I want to start and it's always the kind of thing that when I tell Cuinn, he cringes. Because it's expensive, or it's going to be a huge undertaking. Or it's because he know me to well and knows that I'm kind of a scatterbrain and get bored very easily. Which means I'll drop it mid-project to start another huge project. He still loves me though. Right, Cuinn? Right?
A cold glass of milk
Man. If I could only drink one thing for the rest of my life it would be an ice cold glass of milk. On the other hand, if someone wanted to be cruel to me, all they'd have to do is hand me a glass of milk that was not ice cold. The ONLY way I can drink it is if it is so cold it almost hurts your teeth. But it's sooooo worth it.
Trying something different (in the kitchen) for my husband
I love making up recipes with what I have in the kitchen. For instance, I'm making enchilada's tonight for dinner. The recipe has a whole bunch of things in it that I don't like, so I don't have it in my kitchen, and since money is tight, I'm just going to make do with what I've got. My mum used to tell me when I was younger, "If I don't have it in the kitchen, I make something different." When I was a kid I thought that meant she would just change the recipe, later on I realized it meant she made a completely different meal. Well, I'm very stubborn. And when I feel like making enchilada's for dinner, I'm having enchilada's for dinner. Even if I don't have all the ingredients. I'll make it up as a go along.
I am lucky to have a man who will look after our daughter for an hour so I can read. It's because he's lucky enough to have a woman who will look after our daughter for an hour so he can play video games. We've got a nice little compromise going here. I love curling up in our bed, shutting the door and entering my secret world of books.
Watching our daughter figure things out
She's in her exersaucer right now. I love watching her actually PLAYING with the toys and not just hitting them accidentally. She is, for real, spinning the toys and figuring out what each one does. That is so cool! I love watching how happy she is when she realizes, "Oh, hey, if I move my feet like this, I can turn around and play with a different toy!" She's so smart!
Yup. I love him. He's a pretty cool guy. The best part though? He loves me right back.
Here's a couple pictures I love.
Isn't he super hot?
Isn't she super cute?
Don't we look super happy?
