My picture doesn't do it justice.
*Our artist extraordinaire, Whitney, came home from school with a spring in her step. I said, "It looks like you had a good day." She said, "I'm SO proud of myself!" She went on to share the news that she has two pieces of artwork on display at the county school offices--one in the superintendent's office and another in the Personnel building.
Way to go, Whitney!
*Caroline is officially giving up her afternoon nap. I am SO in denial. She takes "quiet time" in her room for an hour most days, but has only fallen asleep maybe twice in the last three weeks. She's at that awkward phase, though, where I feel like she still needs a nap. If we're driving around in the late afternoon/early evening, she almost always falls asleep in the van. Oh, well. You can't make someone sleep. The downside is that I lose some of my precious free time. But on the upside, we can stay out later shopping or playing.
Just hoping her lack of sleep doesn't turn her
into a little monster.
*I won the first week of fantasy football. I was matched up with Andrew. It was predicted to be a close game, but by the end of Sunday night, he was up by 52 points. I had two players in the Monday night game, but figured it was hopeless.... Until Wes Welker pulled off a 99 yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Yea, baby! I was giddy all day Tuesday.
*Andrew took a business trip to Dallas this week. It was A HUNDRED AND FIVE DEGREES. I was once again reminded how grateful I am we got to stay in NC with his job and not relocate.
