We’re Back

Monday, May 31st, 2010

We made it home safely from our Harr family vacation. It was wonderful, long trip, but a lot of fun.
Darren came home with a cold which really seems to be hanging on to him.

My current project, aside from the usual staying alive deal, has been potty training my two year old. We’re on day four of that. She is doing fine, but has a while to go before we’re 100%

The beginning of this came when I noticed that her cloth diapers are getting a wee bit snug. I am pretty confident that she can do this.

Diederick just got one of those educational preschool computer games. He thinks its just swell. I’m normally not a famn of this sort of, “learning” but he is enjoying it and being a little more attentive to the things that the program features just in his daily life.

Koen isn’t sitting up very indipendantly and has yet to cut any teeth. However, he does have two new tricks; 1.) he can shake his head back and forth as if to say, “no” 2.) he can raise his eyebrows. Doesn’t sound cute? It’s adorable! Maybe in a you-had-to-be-there kind of way. :)
But really, if you’re a local, do come by and he’ll show you and I promise you’ll be charmed.

Darren has he yearly evaluation today.

And I am looking forward to a new camera card coming in the mail. I totaled mine last week.

Up late, and it shows!

Rummage

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

Rummage, tag, yard, garage.

Tack on the word Sale before any of those and you’ll have cars lining up along the sidewalk.

To put on such an event you spend, I imagine, time sorting through your things and writing out tags with prices on each really telling others how much this item means to you deep down.

After you do that you comit to the event by putting posters all over town, or at least on craigslist or in the newspaper.

The day finally arrives and you are obligated to sit outside and watch total strangers walk through your yard, or even inside the garage.

What’s the etiquette at events like this? Obviously, don’t steal anything.
What else?

Tell me what you think. :)

I guess the big question is:
If you care to do all this work of preparing and setting out your things, why charge on 25 cents for a blouse that doesn’t have poop on it? Charge more!
If it’s only worth 25 cents to you, wouldn’t it be easier to just drop it off at Value Village?

So wouldn’t be able to blog today!

Excuse the dirty lense, among other things.

firsts are always dorky.

My first time trying to do a video blog post. I’m sitting in front of the big mirror in my living room (thanks for that, auntie kaya) so that I can be sure that my hair isn’t standing up straight, or anythign else going on that shouldn’t be. It would happen to me!
