I got out of the house

Today was a good day. I think I will just list some of the things that happened:

  • This morning Wendy hurt her foot and she wanted me to know it. She said, "Mommy, I hurt my foot!" I said, "You did? I'm sorry." She said, "No, Mommy! I did it!" She doesn't comprehend the concept of sympathy yet.

  • I actually got out of the house on a weekday all by myself! Unfortunately it was to get a cavity filled, but when I got there he said he didn't even need to use Novocaine. That was awesome. A simple fix. My new dentist is a talker. I concluded today that dentists are the type of people who are comfortable with one-sided conversations. He told me all about his daughter's science fair projects, her camping trip this weekend, his daughter's invention, his dislike for cold weather, the fact that he moved here in 1990, that he loves bicycles, etc. I would've loved to have responded to him, but my mouth was filled with cotton and tools. I could only attempt a muffled, "Uh-huh....ah....enh." and use my eyebrows for some expression.

  • On my way to my next errand I saw a white pick-up truck with a covered cab. On the cab it said, "Bullet Deliveries" and a phone number in plain text. So do they actually deliver bullets? Or do they just deliver fast? Or both? This is when a logo or tagline might be helpful.

  • I heard a political ad on the radio for a state congressman. The whole ad was a narrator talking about how the opposing party's candidate was using negative campaigning and talking bad about her opponent. Seriously, the whole ad was talking about how bad it was that his opponent was talking bad about him. It made me laugh. The ad was supported by the same candidate that sent some literature to my home several weeks ago. The literature had recommendations on how to save energy. Most of the recommendations made sense like use weatherstripping, set your thermostat high in the summer, and use fans and open windows to cool. He also recommended, "Eat cold food instead of warming every meal, especially leftovers." I'm not sure about every meal, but I'll vote for anyone who eats cold pizza.
  • When I came home from my two hour mid-week excursion, Wendy greeted me at the door. She said, "Mommy, I thought you were upstairs!" I laughed and said, "That's funny!" With a straight face she said, "Actually, it's not." That girl takes things so literally!

When I got home, I realized that I forgot to take the tag off my new jeans.

A little deja vu from yesterday. She looks naked, but she's not.

Eating is seriously so exhausting!

I know all these things are probably funnier to me than they are to you. But today was a good day. I got out of the house all by myself! I even went to Walmart to get the kids some new socks. They've been complaining about having cold feet in the mornings and I can't seem to find any socks for them that fit or aren't severely stained. (My kids wear only sandals May thru October because I love having 6 months of sock-free laundry.) This morning it was 67 degrees downstairs. Brrrr!
