called me this morning:
I exchanged an extra Ionic Breeze unit at The Sharper Image for an Oreck Vacuum Cleaner. Though I love our Ionic Breeze, I didn't think we needed another one. Besides, I had been eyeing the Oreck for a long time. My parents own an Oreck and it has got to be THE BEST vacuum cleaner in the world...of course you don't realize it until you're forced to use something else. After the exchange, we walked around in the hot sun window-shopping and enjoying the great weather. We left shortly before traffic became too unbearable.
and I got home around 5pm and rested until Aric got home. Once Aric
came home, we picked up Patrick and went to my mother-in-law's for dinner.
It's been a month since our last visit. *shame on us* My mother-in-law
made us a nice dinner and spent time with her before stopping by Aric's
grandmother's place. Both my mother-in-law and Aric's grandmother were
surprised at how big Ashlyn has grown. She is really getting big. Aside
from zipping around on the carpet, she began to pull herself up on people
and furniture and side-stepping to get around. She falls on her bottom
A LOT! Oh, speaking of falling....she fell off the bed again this morning.
She was playing with the laundry basket and after she pushed it off
the bed, she dove after it. I saw everything in slow motion and was
helpless to do anything about it. Luckily, she landed on the circular
laundry basket (which was tipped on it's side) and from there, it rolled
and she landed softly on the carpet. Still, the fall scared her and
she cried....for about a second...then saw her own reflection in the
mirror and started laughing. GOOFY!
today was eventful and the sun drained me of my energy. I slept
all the way home from Aric's grandmother's place. I was so knocked out,
I didn't even get a chance to say "bye" to Patrick when we
dropped him off. hehehehe
