I hung a load of clothes out on the line. Of course pushing the clothes pins open caused spasms of pain through my thumb. I guess I won't be doing any more laundry today.
I have 3 loads to fold...should I do them or have the kids? It might aggravate my thumb, you know.
I did unload and reload the dishwasher. But that caused pain too every time the water hit it.
Actually, my thumb is healing very well. If I keep a couple of band-aids on, it creates a nice protection from bumps and bangs. I think I had better go get some band-aids on it, lest I moan and groan all day.
I think my to-do list is just longer than my motivation! It's hard to get busy when you have the sweetest little baby sound asleep on you. She is so cuddly and quiet and still right now. Very rare now that she is mobile.
Plans for today:
-weed strawberry patch
-till up spinach (didn't grow well)
-plant sweet potatoes, melons, more cucumbers and squash
-put newspaper and straw around green beans, beets, peas and potatoes
-make home made pizza
-clean my room
Well that should keep me busy for a while. If I get done, maybe I'll surprise the Husband and mow the neighbor's farm for him. I mowed ours last night instead of cooking supper. Mowing doesn't bother my thumb at all.

So tonight we decided to eat at Dairy Queen. The husband's idea for cooking. I chopped off a hefty chuck of my right thumb (OUCH!!!) and cooking, (zippers, hair clips, diaper changing, dishes, etc.) is pretty difficult. On the way there, Tiny (the friend) tells me that she doesn't eat hot dogs because they have animal hair in them. YUCK! Then she tells me that hamburgers are out too because someone ate hamburger and died 12 days later.
You should have seen the look Leeny gave me. It was a "I can't believe you've fed me that stuff!" kind of look. I told her it was okay to eat it. She just gave me "the look" and ordered chicken. She's always been my least likely to eat meat, now I think it just got worse.

While driving to town the other day, Leeny told me how the farmers leave "hoops" in their fields. Finally, I figured out she meant where the farmers turn around in the end rows, the planters leave round markings in the dirt. Not only did she think that the "hoops" were new this year, she also informed me that the farmers were wrong and should instead, turn around in the grass. She carried on about how when she is a mom and farmer that she wouldn't leave hoops.

Is she starting to understand the value of a dollar? Maybe.
I guess it's too much sugar and not enough protein and healthy stuff. Every time I eat cereal for breakfast (the good sugary kind), I end up shaky and weak and can't think straight. One time I had to call the Husband home from work. I thought I was going to pass out. Then it happened the other day and I was in the truck in another town. Very scary!
So, I guess I'm getting older. No more sugary cereal for me. I have to eat grown up food now - always. I'm going to the Doctor next month for a check-up and plan to discuss this with her.
I'm not sure I like this getting older stuff.

*The Husband's nose was broken by someone else and Leeny re-broke it while wrestling with him*
Fast forward to today. She goes to a friend's 6th birthday party. The bully is there too. He takes one look at Leeny and says, "Ahhhh, Don't hurt me!"
That's my girl!

Poor Bubby is off to water again.
Wednesday, May 5, 2010
I wish I would have had this for the other 3 kids. The baby loves it! I don't even know what you call it. This contraption has a mesh bag and you drop food into it and let the baby chew on it. They get the food with no choking. The Baby loves cantaloupe, likes grapes and tolerates raw sweet potatoes. I even stuck a piece of cracker in there. She polished it off but was pretty messy. The other awesome thing about it is that it keeps The Baby occupied for about 30 minutes. She doesn't even cry when I leave the room! Maybe I'll get some spring cleaning done.

I think I like this. As long as The Bug doesn't push me out of my kitchen because that's my favorite place to be. I wonder if I could encourage her to like cleaning more than cooking? Then all the bases would be covered around here.

They didn't even last through church! The heel fell off and out came the light. They are fixable, just not during the sermon. Leeny stuck the heel and the light in her pocket assured that mommy would fix them later with the Gorilla Glue.
Well we got home and I was exhausted. A nap sounded better. When I woke up, Leeny greeted me with her new invention. She found a police car that belonged to Bubby and a roll of clear tape. She taped the light to the top of that car. And when she pushes the car, the red and blue lights flash. It looks pretty real.
I guess that pair of shoes wasn't a waste of money after all.
