This morning I hit the snooze button a few times too many. I didn’t realize it until it was too late. I ended up being 45 minutes late for work today. It really threw my whole day off.
I need to get an alarm clock that doesn’t have a snooze button. I really like to take advantage of it too often and today I paid for it. Maybe if I mice my alarm clock to the other side of the room,so that I have to get out of bed to turn it off, I’ll do a better job of waking up instead of going back to sleep.
Lady Bug and I went to the mall this afternoon to finally purchase the IPad I’ve been wanting for some time now. We stopped off at the Apple Store to find just what I had been itching to buy all week long. From the windows outside you could see the apples on almost everything.
Lady Bug was totally mesmerized by the pop up displays with the Apple logo on them. She thought that the curved walls were the neatest thing. She kept running her hand against the fabric and telling me how smooth it was. When she looked at one of the apples she pretended to take a bite and made a chomping sound. It was adorable.
One of her favorite pop up booths looked like it had three walls that were all connected in the center. She ran around it and told me it was a merry-go-round. I couldn’t stop laughing because I went there to buy an IPad and ended up staying so she could play in the playground of all the pop up displays. I bet these pop ups would be great to place in the play room I’m planning to make her. A few displays in bright contrasting colors would really set the room off and help keep each section of toys organized.
Today after I got home from work we had family night. I mean we usually spend time doing things together every night but tonight was special. I got out some of Lady Bug’s favorite games, popped some popcorn, and made some yummy hot chocolate.
We played three board games for youngsters and then watched Tangled. Lady Bug loved to sing along with the movie. She ran to the kitchen and pulled out a silicone spatula to use as a microphone. It was absolutely adorable.
I hope we can do this more often. Both of us enjoyed ourselves and had a terrific time.
Some people have some of the most controversial bumper stickers. Other have bumper stickers that celebrate their children and their accomplishments. There are even those bumper stickers that honor our service men and women.
Well, this afternoon as I sat at a light waiting to turn left I noticed a bumper sticker on the back of a work truck that looked like it was for some type of construction company. On one side there was a basic bumper sticker that mentioned the superb drivers of the company and on the other side was the bumper sticker that kind of cracked me up and made my day. It said, ” If 10% is enough for God, it should be enough for the IRS!”
I couldn’t help but laugh when I read that and then thought about how much I actually pay in taxes every year. 10% would be nice.
Lady Bug and I had a play date this afternoon. While at her friend’s house I saw something extremely clever. Every wooden puzzle had a small piece of Velcro on each piece and it’s corresponding hole.
I thought this was shear genius! I love that Lady Bug could pick up the puzzle and move it to a different area without all if the pieces falling out. This also allows for vertical storage of the puzzles so she can flip through a few to find the one she wants like on a bookcase.
I live this idea soo much that I’m going to stop off at the craft store tomorrow and pick up some Velcro for our puzzles.
