An Average Day

Sep 4, 2008

Harrison woke up at 6:00 this morning and I tried to use The Force to get him to go back to sleep. It didn't work for me, so I had to go get him some water. Then he slept until 8:00 Yahoo! And then sweet, sweet Richard got up with him and let me sleep until 9:00. Wow. What did I do to deserve that? When I woke up Harrison was helping Richard make scrambled eggs. Which means Richard was holding Harrison and letting him sort of swing a wooden spoon around in the frying pan. He looked very pleased with himself. (Harrison, not Richard). We ate breakfast, and then I got Harrison and myself dressed so I could take him to his Grandma's house. She agreed to watch him so that I could run some errands and Richard could get some stuff done on the house.

Richard started gluing all the pipes he spent all day yesterday running, which means we can't use any water for 24 hours. Ah, just like the good ole days. Course, as soon as he told me that, I immediately had to go to pee. Darn!

Patched the new pants we bought for Richard. Don't really know why brand new pants need to come equipped with holes, but I guess that is the price you pay for fashion.

At 5:00 I had to go to the Stake Youth Swimming activity. The kids ate hotdogs and swam (after waiting a half hour, of course!) As leaders we didn't have to do anything. Just be there. At 8:00 the activity finally ended. It wasn't a waste though, because I was able to use the bathroom at the pool!

Got home about 8:15. Got to cuddle my cute sweet Harrison for a little while. It is a long day when I don't get to see him. Then I put him to bed. Somehow he knows exactly how to make it nearly impossible for me to change his clothes. He goes all limp and twisty so that it is impossible to take anything off or put anything on. Then I read him a story "That's not my monster" and put him to sleep. Or rather, in his crib with a couple of books. I still hear him in there making noise. I am going to have to make a trip to Macey's tonight to use the bathroom, and I am trying to talk myself out of getting a treat. Now Richard and I are going to watch some Dr. Who and go to bed. I can't wait to have a toilet up stairs!!
