I gave these pants another try. A chance to redeem themselves, if you will.
They are still the worst.
We went to the Provo Farmer’s Market on Saturday, where Forrest silently fumed with the greenest of jealousy that other kids, whose parents are obviously much smarter and kinder and more loving and better prepared than we are, got to play in the splash pad. So we did what any sensible parents would do.
He begged and begged to ditch the underpants. Sorry kiddo. I have to draw the line somewhere, and it seems I draw it just south of public underpants but slightly north of total nudity.
I feel like I wasted my week on this book, and I’m kind of annoyed that it fooled me by starting out strong and slowly—so, soooo slowly—declining until I was in too deep to just give up and move on. I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of my next library hold to get that book’s taste out of my mouth. My brain. My brain-mouth.
I (and by “I,” I of course mean “my mom”) started reworking my gallery wall as part of a little living room spruce-up, and the small handful of people who have entered the room this week have very politely not commented on the giant gaps and empty holes between frames as I’ve been rearranging them and figuring out what to add to it, as well as the photos hung sideways and upside-down as I figure out what arrangement I like best. Is this a case of highly polite friends and neighbors, or is it more likely that my friends and neighbors have fully accepted my insanity and to them, this is just par for the course in my casa? (I think it’s the latter.)
Anybody have any experience using this? I’m intrigued. Very intrigued.
I reworked some listings in my Etsy shop and restocked it with lots of custom orders for cute hats and darling baby blankets (in case you didn’t know, it’s been mostly empty for months as I adjusted to life with 2 kids—not sure one ever fully adjusts, but at any rate, I’m ready to crochet again). I posted a coupon code on my facebook page, so head over and gimme a like and grab that coupon code, if you feel so inclined!
