I’m gonna try and update all day. We’ll see how that goes. These items done for the chunks of time are not in chronological order. So for example, I did NOT check my email right after getting up. In fact, I went to the living room and cleaned up Morella’s play area so she would have something to mess up while we made her breakfast.
By 8:44 AM today I have:
-Got out of bed at 7:17AM
-checked my email
-Opened the curtains
-Washed mud off the sofa because of that dumbass dog
-reset Morella’s play area
-ate an old donut and bowl of fruity cheerios for breakfast
-fed Morella breakfast
-washed my face and put in contacts
-checked my internet haunts
-put in a service ticket for my domain
-played with Morella
-made the bed
-finished updating my address database from xmas return labels
-hung up a few stray Morella items
Note: Morella is NOT forward facing yet. She is still rear facing and will remain so until she at least hits 20 pounds, which you know at this rate will take forever.
Next Block of time until 11:37:
-changed poopy diaper

-Feed Morella lunch of: 1/8 avacado (she actually ate some this time instead of spitting it out), raspberry jello, shaved deli turkey, wedge of Laughing Cow baby swiss, 1/2 cupcake.
-Make self a grilled provolone cheese sandwich with red onions, avacado, a sprinkle of salt and miracle whip. I accidentally burned on half and had to peel it off and redo it.

-laid Morella down for her afternoon nap. She settled without a fuss.
-upload a photo of Morella helping me. Every time I took the sticker off her nose, she put it back on. It stayed there all morning.

“sometimes all the words are missing…But then if I click&drag to select them, they reappear (only temporarily)”
Can anybody else please verify and tell me if this happens to them too? Or is it that Laima just needs to change her reader or get her computer adjusted.

Now I am going to take a shower I think. My nose has been sniffly all day! It’s like allergies … but I don’t have allergies. I refuse to believe it. It’s just that one nostril is being tickled by .. somthing which is just making the snot come faster and feel sneezy. I have a doctor appointment tomorrow and …gah. I don’t feel like taking a shower right now. Maybe I should in the morning. I just feel tired like I want to lay down for awhile and just read. Maybe I’ll do that. I’ll let you know how it goes.
