Dancing to Disney

Didn’t sleep much last night, coughing.  Stayed downstairs so I wouldn’t wake Amanda up.  I heard Milly crying a little before 6 and went up to check on her.  She was saying she wanted her mommy, but I got her to talk to me instead.  She had a bad dream, something about a little man with a sword and her friends… I don’t know.  Anyway, we talked about nice dreams she could have and she went back to sleep after I stayed with her for the two minutes of bedtime music.  I got into my own bed after that, but then Milly got up at 7:00 and I couldn’t really get back to sleep, mainly because she was cheerfully chatting …

Everybody’s Sick

Milly was still sick today and I was a little sick and Karen had a headache and texted me that she wouldn’t be coming today.  Despite all that, and despite the fact that Milly got up at around 7:15 (with a dry pullup, yay!), the day went pretty well. Of course, we just set our clocks back an hour yesterday, so it was really like 8:15 (except nobody went to bed an hour earlier).  I didn’t know Karen wasn’t coming yet either, and I wanted to get my workout as done as possible before she got here, so I went ahead and got up. I felt pretty good about my workout today, which was arms and shoulders (“shoulder, bi, tri”), …

2012 Cape Fear Fair

We got to set the clocks back an hour today, which was nice.  I woke up a bit before I needed to and probably would have gone back to sleep, but the sound of various animals scratching themselves or gnawing on themselves was overwhelmingly irritating to me and I finally got up to feed them and let them out. When I went to get Milly up she stayed asleep through my opening the door, which isn’t usually the case in the morning, then she yawned and stretched for a while and told me she was still sleepy.  I asked her if she wanted to sleep a few more minutes and she said yes, but then she got right up, walked …

Dinner with Paul and the Frazelles

We started our Saturday off the way Saturdays should start, which was by lazing about in bed and watching cartoons.  Milly got up and got in bed with us then said she wanted to watch Lilo & Stitch. I eventually went to the store to pick up some eggs and biscuits and Amanda made breakfast.  Afterwards I played some more Dragon Age II while Milly sat in my lap and pretended to play as well.  She went down for a rest at some point and Amanda folded the mass of clean clothes that has accumulated in the guest room.  Milly and Amanda also made a rocket out of the box Amanda’s boots, which arrived yesterday, came in. After Milly got …

Dinner Conondrum

Milly got up last night and went to the bathroom around 3:00.  She wanted me to help her because she had to go #2, and she did squeeze me a bit, but nothing ever came of it.  She mostly just talked to me.  When she did finally go back to bed she did a nice job of closing the door and getting back in bed by herself. Paul, Amanda’s cousin, came to town from DC for a visit and stopped by the ouse for lunch on his way in.  He and Amanda went to pick up some Poor Piggy’s BBQ while I stayed home and worked on some sites.  He hung out for a bit then went to Anna and …
