My baby sister turned 27 today. With a husband, two kids, a career in banking and, as she puts it, being officially in her late 20’s now, I guess she’s not such a baby anymore. I had Milly call her and leave a voice message singing happy birthday, which she did with a mini Reece’s Cup in her mouth. Andra called back a few minutes later and we chatted a little.
Milly had show & tell today. She was originally going to take a Tinker Bell doll as their items had to either start with F or be yellow, and Tink is a fairy with yellow hair. She ended up taking her flashlight, which she got for our recent camping trip. Amanda decided to up the game a little by suggesting Milly wear her yellow Foofa shirt and some pants with flowers on them.
I was talking to Allison (henceforth called Alice, because that’s what Milly always calls her) and she said Callie had also taken a flashlight.
I got a bit of work done this morning, but it was mounting up and I also had a late morning meeting, so I didn’t do my exercise today. I give this week a D, because I did exercise one day, but not the other two. I had excuses, sure, but that’s not good enough.
I stayed busy all day, but I don’t feel like I accomplished much. It’s kind of a frustrating feeling.
Amanda and Cyra went to hang out for a couple hours this evening. More on that some other day.
I got an email yesterday, or maybe the day before, about how the kids are learning to spell colors in class with some songs. I asked Milly how to spell red (because she’s done that before), and she spelled it GREEN. She got it right when I asked her to spell it out though. Then she sang a song about yellow, but I think she was leaving out one of the L’s.
Amanda and I watched the season premiere of Law & Order: SVU, which was a continuation of last season’s finale and a two-parter. Amanda went to bed after that.
