I saw this morning that I have a new “Follower” to this blog. I am always amazed at how many followers I have. I don’t keep a goal in mind for a certain number of followers, although I appreciate each and every one of you! So today I would like to welcome Anne and extend a great big THANK YOU for coming along for the ride. We’ll be on the road again soon.
We are winding down our 2 months of babysitting. We have either 10 or 15 days left, depending on when the girls go back to daycare. This does not count the coming weekend when we are taking the “grands” camping.
The dog days have certainly set in, especially while we are house bound with Mackenzie’s cold/virus. She has really been coughing, sneezing, and everything else that goes along with her spreading of germs. How lucky we are to be breathing in all of that air inside the house. It will be a miracle if we do not come down with this virus. Part of the on-the-job hazards. Hey…can we collect hazard pay?
I fixed Mackenzie a cheese omelet for breakfast and toast with grape jelly. Zoey wanted the usual toaster waffles….fine by me. I work around here like a short-order cook anyway.
We prefer coming to the kids house to babysit since the girls have all of their stuff here. Annie makes herself at home, too. Too, we can scoot out the door ASAP when Stephanie gets home from work and go back to our quiet sanctuary….plus air conditioning!
There are a couple of things (among others) that keep me wondering around here. Every household runs on it’s own schedule and system (or lack of system) but I always wonder why nobody in this house, of 3 bathrooms, can possibly replace the toilet paper on the roll? No matter which bathroom I go into, this is what I find………
Now, if you can take the roll out of the drawer or cupboard…..why on earth can you not put it on the roll? Just wondering.
Turning off lights, ceiling fans and TV’s seem to be difficult here, too. I will say they are all getting better at turning off the TV’s, but lights still seem to pose a problem. I’m always reminding the girls to go back into their rooms or closets and turn off the lights. Same thing with the light in the laundry room. Is this so hard to remember? Just wondering.
There is a new shoe rack installed in the laundry room and that is quite handy. Still, some shoes don’t seem to make it onto the shelf. Why not? Can’t blame the girls….those are big people shoes. Just wondering.
I am always seeing a few pairs of shoes down at the foot of the stairs. OK, this one I sort of understand because they usually remove their shoes down on the wood floor before they go upstairs on the carpet. However, when they come back down they usually put on other shoes and still leave the other ones in the way on the floor. Does it really take that long to go and put them in the closet or on the shelf? Just wondering.
See how these Dog Days of summer have me knit-picking on all of this stuff? Why do I do that? Boredom? Lack of good blogging material? Just wondering.
Until next time…..so long for now!
