Mind Dribble

What She Wore: long-sleeve green tee; my new Levis; brown, slip-on tennis shoes with white stripes on the sides; my brown, leather LSU purse. It’s discreet enough that people don’t notice immediate that it’s LSU paraphernalia–not that I’m opposed to being as obnoxious as possible in my tiger love.

Here are some dribblings from the brain of a person who never seems to have enough sleep. I don’t know if it’s the baby or if I need to take some iron pills or what.

My dad sent me home with ten murder mystery DVDs–that should keep me busy for a while.

I’ve gotten a library card, but then I started wondering if library books would bring germs into the house–I may just end up buying stuff or maybe I should wipe them down with anti-bacterial wipes?

I am desperate to get my ceiling scraped. I may just do it tonight–stay up and scrape. Really, it doesn’t take that long. I just get tired and quit. If I put half as much energy into this project as I did into scraping wallpaper I would have been done about a million years ago.

We are working at strengthening Charlie’s neck muscles–time in the jumparoo and tummy time. Also, I’ve got his nursery mainly put together and it’s nice to have a place to put all his crapola. The only problem is that I forgot to take down the rose-colored curtains that the last owner left. Pink curtains in a boys room! Poor guy.

Basically, more of the same.

  1. I still can’t wait to see pics of the “new to you” house!

    The baby will be fine… actually her Omphalocele is medium-sized and they seem to think (as of now) that I can have her naturally and not have a C-section. I’m just so thankful for the in-laws living in Cabot. I’m assuming little Charlie was in AR Children’s as well? They are good there… that’s all I keep hearing. I’m just not thrilled of being away from home that long. But, I want her to have the best care possible.

    I keep thinking of the name Blair… but that’s about it. I will have to check out those sites!

  2. 10 murder mysteries! Man, that sounds great! I think you could disinfect the library books–the ones from the store are bound to have germs, too. Invest in those anti-acterial wipes. 😉
    And I’m glad I could turn you into a Huck-hater–it’s my goal…especially since my state is loving him up this week! Crazy man!

    Hello, long time reader (lurker, whatever!), first time commenter. Please talk to your doctor before doing any reconstruction/scraping of the house. If Charlie is immunosuppressed by the meds he is taking, that can be really dangerous. Molds live in dust and construction stirs them up. I am glad to see Charlie looking so good and I love reading your blog. Stacy

    Stacy-don’t worry. We’ve finished all the scraping we’re planning to do. Next up we’re painting the ceiling and hanging a light fixture–should be safe.
