Puppets and Puzzles

I decided we should do something creative with Milly today, so we helped her make a paper bag puppet.  She mostly directed and we did the work, but it was fun.  A little later Amanda found a 3D puzzle of a stegosaurus.  I can’t remember where it came from, but Milly and I started to put it together.  She was with me for a minute or two then decided to do something else. It was very nice out.  Kenzie and Kimber from across the street came over and the three girls made puppets for Bonnie, whose birthday was today.  I worked on my puzzle in the meantime. A little later we went to a birthday party at Monkey Joe’s for Ashley, …

Catch Up

I have been so, so slack on here. I haven’t even been making notes like I usually do when I get behind. I blame it on a few things. First, I was sick Milly and I both were, but she was for longer. She even had a night where she threw up. It seems like until recently we didn’t have a week go by this year yet where everyone was healthy. Secondly, I blame it on the Walking Dead video game. I was addicted to it, so I had to go ahead and beat it. I was like Heavy Rain, where it’s more like you’re playing out a movie than playing a game. It actually had some touching moments in …

Big Little Earth

Remember the mermaid Milly got at Brilliant Sky yesterday?  Well, she told me today that she named her Pinkful.  Why not?  She’s got pink hair and a pink tail.  I’m glad Milly’s back to her inventive names instead of naming everything after Disney princes and princesses. Milly and I continue to be sick.  Fun stuff.  She didn’t cough nearly as much today as she did yesterday.  I don’t think I did either, but my voice is hoarse. I took her to a meeting with me this morning.  It was informal and it was with Mike Boscaljon, so it wasn’t a huge deal.  She was very inquisitive as I was setting up the lights for the shoot.  She was fine for …

Spongebob is too Funny

I went to the bank today then decided to stop by Best Buy.  As part of one of the services I provide to high end clients, I use an iPad specifically for their individual account.  Now, that may seem excessive, but it actually makes things a lot easier because a big part of it is social networking, and while Hootsuite is great for managing several accounts, it’s can’t do everything, and for the ones it can’t do it would be a pain to have to constantly log in and out of accounts to manage them.  So each one gets an iPad with all the necessary apps set up and logged in for them. Anyway, I was going to get another …

Milly’s Fairy Game

I was supposed to run a camera at church today, but I called Nick yesterday afternoon and told him I didn’t know if I’d make it.  Since I was already a fill-in and they didn’t have anyone else, I told him I’d get up at the regular time and see how I felt.  So I did.  Then after giving myself a few minutes to wake up and all, I texted him and told him I wouldn’t be making it. We did lose an hour of sleep to daylight saving time, but I got a good six or so hours of sleep, which is pretty normal for me, so that didn’t factor into it. We actually ended up not even going …
