Life has sure changed a lot since college days. It’s 8:30 and here I am just about ready for bed. Paul wants me to play DDR with him and I’m not sure if I can manage. Of course, I know that if I get started dancing it will be easy to keep going. That game is way too addictive.
I spent most of today trying to clean our basement. Hopefully we will be able to paint it sometime this week. The paint we bought is called Flemish Blue. It was really hard to decide between it and Hola Indigo. I really don’t know how the paint people come up with such names. Our upstairs walls are Orchid Whisper, which sounds like it should be purple or something. It’s actually white with a tiny hint of blue.
Abigail and Sam spent the day and Nana and Papa’s house. I am so thankful for free babysitting. Of course, there are many other reasons it is good to be close to family.
I have been reading “The New Strong-Willed Child” by Dr. James Dobson. I am not sure that it has been all that helpful. Except it reminds me that I am not the only one out there with a strong-willed little one. That would be Abigail, of course. She can be incredibly sweet and well-behaved, but she can also drive me nuts. I think she was born to be a leader. Unfortunately, she’ll have to learn not to be so bossy.
