A Break from Swimming

We've been in swim lessons for the past couple of months.  We didn't go all this week because of a terrible "diaper rash".  I don't know what's going on and the doctor says it's just some vague virus.  He said to keep going to swim.  I have no healthcare training.  (I probably should fix that...) But I have a vivid imagination.  I am also sleepy.  And paranoid.  I usually use the internet a lot for health stuff but I don't want to start googling stuff about rashes and skin diseases and gruesome photos. I'm feeling pretty helpless on this one.

My Aloe is Sad

I used to raise aloe vera in Reno.  It was an accidental thing.  They just kept having cute little pups. When we moved I only took this little grandbaby aloe.  She has survived many adventures but lately is looking rather sad.  She has too many kids in too small of a house.  After we move I intent to get her into a bigger house so for today I was just kicking the kids out.  I put them in my son's planter.  He likes taking care of little non-human babies so I think he'll welcome them.

We're a Baby Doll Family

I never expected to have my home littered with baby dolls.  I expected the Legos and the matchbox cars and eventually, hopefully the Calico Critters.  I thought we could just not do the baby dolls because I don't like them.  It doesn't matter what I like.  Miss Daisy has decided baby dolls are the best toys.  You can hug them...discipline them...chew on their ears.  With her love of the dolls I am starting to find the cuteness in them.  It's cute to see her taking care of someone else.

I caught Miss Daisy running away from home.  She left her shoes but took her superhero mask.  I can only assume she expected to fly out of here.

Missing Flatware

While I was organizing my kitchen back in January I went ahead and picked out a silverware pattern I eventually wanted to purchase.  $2.50/utensil.  I haven't ordered them yet and I'm glad I waited.  Someone recently stole some of our flatware. I'm not pointing fingers but we have a 2 year old in the house. If I had matching flatware I would be mad/sad/far from glad right now.  I was able to replace the missing utensils easily at Goodwill, for 29¢ each.  If I find any of these being used to dig in the backyard I'll happily say "Keep it! I know where to get more."

Home Bound...

Last week we started the home buying process.  I am eager to get moving, organizing and decorating but I have a month of sitting around.  In the next month I could easily anxiously pace around but I think I will get my scrapbooks up to date and purge my supplies so I won't have that burden after I move.  We are also doing swim lessons and winding up the school year.  Plenty to keep busy with.
