We Don't Cut Our Own Grass, and Other Confessions
Taken on a sunny afternoon. Yesterday, in fact. Today was not as sunny, which, during New England spring, is par for the course. But, after the winter we had, it's a blow. So, a tally:
Things I'm Proud Of:
-I've been keeping a spreadsheet of my daily fruit and vegetable intake, and, I'll tell you, since I started, it's gone up considerably.
-When, during her "nap", Edie took her pants and diaper off, then proceeded to poop directly on the bed/pillow, I KEPT IT TOGETHER. I didn't even say anything, I just scooped her up and put her in the bath, then cleaned up her crib while she played.
-I made a tough phone call tonight. Is it just me, or has anyone else's phone phobia increased, like, ten-fold, since it became so easy to not actually talk to anyone?
-I powered through all the conference Priesthood Session talks this afternoon.
Things I'm Less Proud Of:
-There has been a lot of McDonald's in my life recently. A lot.
-I stayed up until two a.m. last night watching Hoarders: Buried Alive.
-I have this to-do list that is more like a "I Wish I Would" list.
-Because Edie didn't nap, I laid on the couch and let her watch - I think - about four episodes of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. I say I think because I'm not totally sure how many there were, because I drifted off. All I know is that whenever I was aware of one ending, I would really hope there'd be another one coming up.
