No time for cryin' today! I was too busy livin' the life of a SAHM!
I must say this: God bless your hearts AND YOUR SOULS!! If there was ever any doubt that I wanted to be a SAHM, whell, then today would be a pretty good indication that it would not be the plan that the Good Lord above has for me! I was so (thankfully) reminded today that I have an office with my name on it, a bathroom down the hall that I can actually lock myself in without hearing, "Mommie, what are you doing?", vending machines with snacks and drinks that I don't have to share with a single soul, calming elevator music that doesn't have words, and a computer all to myself where someone isn't constantly hanging on me and either requiring that I type with one hand, or asking the same question as the bathroom: "Mommie, what are you doing?"
My biggest accomplishment of the day: having supper in the crockpot by 11:30 AM (smothered steak and gravy).
My biggest failure of the day: keeping Alise busy and entertained (although painting seemed to do the trick while I was working on my big accomplishment this morning).
It rained nearly all day, so we stayed around the house. We did get out after lunch time just long enough to take Alise to get her toes painted. She thought she was beautiful! I thought so, too. That is, until I told her that the hot pink polish on her fingernails (Thank you, Allison! You all know how I feel about fingernail polish on Baby Girl...) would have to come off before Wednesday - school rule: no nail polish. We went to my moms to drop off the school shorts that she will need to cut off and hem. I didn't make Alise take a nap simply because we had to fight her for two hours last night to get her to go to sleep. I wanted her to be ready for bed tonight! We watched everything from "Rudolph" to "Jungle Book 2". We snacked and read books. Alise played with her Barbies while I finished supper. We had a wonderful day!
Something I want to throw out to you...I read today that there is a possibility that the Chinese "faked" the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics by using "fake" fireworks. Now....ahem! What in the world!!! How do you FAKE fireworks? Either they pop or they don't right?
Are you watching the Olympics? What are your favorite sports? See my new polls at the top of my blog.
