Awww! Poor baby!

Everybody says that Ashlyn's such a happy baby and that she's incredibly mild mannered. Shyeah...that was before! Her stubbornness is starting to rear it's ugly head. When she wants something, she really WANTS it! The above picture was taken after I took the camera away from her. I couldn't resist taking a picture of her first temper-tantrum. hehehe

Today I did a few loads of laundry, cleaned out my closet of old clothes, checked email, played with Ashlyn, and cleaned up around the house. I always go through the same ritual before I leave on a trip. Ashlyn was unusually fussy today. She would yell out anytime I was beyond her peripheral vision. I had to drag her everywhere with me...even to the bathroom! Please let this be a phase!
I wanted to work on the wall borders today, but that was out of the question. I really hate starting something and leaving it unfinished. I want to get it done before I leave for my trip. I'll take another stab at it tomorrow.

Tonight Aric, Ashlyn, and I met up with Mike and Nancy for dinner. It's been a little over two months since we last saw them. We ate at Light Town Korean BBQ House. They have really good korean BBQ, if you don't mind the smoke. I swear...all the smoke drifted to where I was sitting. Throughout dinner I was eating blindly. The food was excellent and even though I was stuffed to the gills, I couldn't stop myself from cleaning up the little dishes that came with our food. It's a shame to let it all got to waste. The little dishes are the best! Anyhow, now I reek of Korean BBQ. =/

It's funny to see our friends play with Ashlyn. Most of them are rarely around babies, so they don't quite know what to do. As Nancy was holding Ashlyn, Ashlyn was grabbing for everything on the table. Ashlyn got a hold of a chopstick, and Mike snatched it away. This illustrates his inexperience around kids...after he snatched it away, he broke off the tip that had BBQ and kim chee residue and handed back the jagged chopstick to Ashlyn. Nancy scolded him, saying that it's dangerous. I just laughed and told Mike that he's better off giving Ashlyn a knife to play with. HAHAHAHA!
We went to Baskin Robbins afterward and indulged in some ice cream. I got the Flavor of the Month-Tax Crunch. It's coffee ice cream with fudge ribbon and chocolate covered rice krispies. Mmmmm! Aric had a midterm to study for so we called it a night.

I missed "Smallville", but that's okay. I easily get hooked on certain shows then after missing a few episodes, I stop watching altogether. I just like it because it has that old "X-Files" flavor to it. On each episode, there's some sort of supernatural phenomenon. Plus the characters are good to look at. =)

Oh, check it. Aric, being the heavy sleeper that he is, always has a hard time getting up in the morning. He never hears his alarm and I always end up waking his ass up in the morning. A while ago he found this 'vibrating alarm pillow' on Ebay and wanted to get it. He is an EBay Ho! I just shook my head and trashed the idea.
Aric: "But it'll work!"
Peg: "Doubt it."
Aric: "It's an alarm clock/pillow for the deaf."
Peg: "Yeah, but is it for the dead?...because you sleep like the dead."
Aric: *pout*
So the other night he found an old massage vibrator in the garage (it's not mine, so you can refrain from emailing me, Matty!), and he made his own vibrating alarm pillow. He McGuyer-ed a timer on the massager, then tucked it under his pillow. He had it set for 7:30am.
Yesterday it didn't go off. Luckily I woke up at 8am and woke Aric for work then went back to sleep. At 9:30am, the damn thing went off! I was tripping out on the mysterious buzzing sound. It must have been going off for a while because when I reached for it, the massager was burning up under the pillow. So last night Aric re-adjusted the timer. This morning I woke up from the same mysterious buzzing sound. I looked at Aric, who was sleeping deeply, then woke him up.
Peg: "See!...it doesn't work!"
Aric: "But I woke up."
Aric: *smiling*
Sheesh!... at least he didn't waste money on that stupid contraption!

Well, gonna go wash the BBQ outta my hair now. G'nite!
