I feel so guilty! THIS HOUSE IS TRASHED!! I really, really meant to spend the day cleaning. Ryan has been staying with grandma for a few days. He called and needed reading material. Sooo .....I made a trip to the library... where I also spent a few hours yesterday for a play date with my friend Ellen and her sweet granddaughter, Molli, who is about the same age as Ethan. Well, Ryan called me three times for me to pick up some of the books for him. My mum was swinging by "the mall" for something, so I met him at the door and dropped off a bag of books for him. Since I had Ellory in the car with me and Ethan was sleeping so sweetly, I ran into the store for diapers, a trip to michaels where I found more stuff I don't need, and a store called "The Outhouse" which carries random paper goods (OK I bought 100 french fry bags because I LOVED the feel of them for collaging?) from stores that have closed. They also have a candy supply "storette" where Elle and I picked up our annual Valentine day supplies. It has been just "us girls" and Ethan for the last few days. I have not cleaned, cooked ( except to make a batch of cookies, just what I needed), my hair is barely combed and Ethan is lucky to have a fresh Dipe!!! Well, I will go to mums tonight to celebrate Ryan's birthday. (That's where he wanted it....I will cart down pizzas from his fave joint and chase Ryan around her "Marthaesque" , overly cleaned and organized house. Oh that DOES come with all the trimmings I crave. Finely decorated table, everything matchy, matchy....and we never EVER mix dishes!!! I LOVE that at HER house!! I feel so bad when she comes to visit ME:) I wonder why I need a pepcid all of the sudden???:)
P.S. Does anyone else out there like sketching on manilla folders??.....I just LOVE the color of them... also gifted myself with two .005 micron pens.
