Alise has gotten attached to an old yellow baby spoon of hers. She prefers it even to her "mermaid" spoon. She can open the drawer now that holds our spoons so she is always reasching for Her "baby spoon," as she calls it. For her birthday, I got her a monkey plate and the matching cup to go with it. The cup has got water and glitter in between the two layers. I've been trying to get Alise to drink more water, so while we were outside tonight she saw me drinking my water and she decided she wanted some. I put it in her new monkey cup without a top and she did pretty good with drinking out of it. I would love to get away from sippy cups. I can deal with the cups that have straws, but I'm tired of sippy cups.
I talked to my friend/ex-boss today. She just turned in her resignation at the hospital in Las Vegas where she was controller and has accepted a CFO position at a hospital in rural Fort Lauderdale. Just a month ago, she sent me an email about a controller position open at a sister Las Vegas hospital and told me to apply for it. I told her today, that I would've ended up in Las Vegas and then she would have left me there! Honestly, I never had any plans of going to Vegas. What happens in Vegas can stay in Vegas as far as I'm concerned!!
I wish I could send our relatives in Alabama some rain, but we didn't get much today, either. For a forecast predicting 80% chance of thunderstorms today, we only got a shower late this evening. We need some rain badly, too!
