random Friday

Holy fast week, Batman. I guess that’s what happens when you start the week recovering from a fun weekend of puke and puke and hey! more puke. Plus fevers. But now we’re finally all better and very much looking forward to Christmas next week.

But first! Some random things. Because I have been a bad blogger lately so I just have to smush it all into one post.

I got my scarf from my scarf buddy, Angela, for the Girl, Get Your Scarf On! swap. She made it herself! I can cross-stitch, but I’ve never tried my hand at knitting so I’m amazed at the fact that she made this. And for me! And I LOVE it. It’s long and lacy and the colors are perfect.

Get your scarf on!

Maggie is starting to speak her first two-word phrases. ‘Daddy work?’ and ‘Daddy sleep?’ are her favorites, along with ‘Elmo friend!’ I’m working on ‘Love you!’ but she doesn’t seem very interested.

She has also pretty much mastered her colors. And today she counted to 13. Okay, so she skipped ‘8’ and ’12’. But she got all the way to 13!

And in keeping with the random-ness, it’s the Friday 5! (Theme: Keeping It Positive)

1. What’s your favorite thing about the shoes you’re wearing (or the shoes you were most recently wearing)?
My shoes at the moment are my fuzzy leopard-print slippers. I love them because they are soft and warm and just super-comfy.

2. What’s your favorite thing about the people you work with (or the people you go to school with)?
I work with myself, so… my favorite thing about myself is that I’m awesome. And I have a casual dress code.

3. What’s your favorite thing about the climate where you live?
As much as I complain about the snow, I do like that we have distinct seasons. Yes, it gets freaking hot and disgusting in July and August, and yes it gets freaking cold in December through March. But, I like the colors and smells of the fall, and I love the lush green of the spring and how freeing it is to finally be able to put on flip-flops and paint my toenails after 8 months in boots.

4. What’s your favorite thing about Friday?
um… that’s it’s FRIDAY. I don’t think it needs any other qualification than that.

5. What’s your favorite thing about the year coming to an end?
I’m ready to move on from this year. Lots of good things about this year, but a few crappy things. I’m looking forward to a clean slate- kind of like how I like completing lists, I like being able to do a mental ‘reset’ with the new year.

    I like #2.. heh :)

    Heidi now speaks in sentences and can string about 8-10 words together – I think it really helps that she’s in daycare with a 4 & 5 year old :) HOWEVER – she HAS been saying I love you for months, but it’s more like, “I DJEW DJEW” even after she’s able to say tough words like hippopotamus, crocodile and on occassion, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (said in syllables)

    Heh – I blame her cousin who’s 8 months older.. he learned it first and she picked it up from him… :)
