I trust you all had a Happy Easter – we certainly did, and I decided for the first time to be immersed in the revelry instead of behind the lens of my camera, so I didn’t get any pictures of the crazy fun morning. But sometimes you just have to be, right?
Besides, the kids didn’t quite get their mess cleaned up in the living room, so taking pictures of the fun would have included the mess, and that’s something I’d rather not share, thanyouverymuch.
I had to get really tricky with finishing the Easter baskets since I didn’t quite get them all done before Princess Nagger got home from school on Thursday, and she was off on Friday. And she’s usually my permanent shadow when she’s home.
So Saturday night after Little Dude was in bed and while Princess Nagger was busy with her bath, I told her I was going downstairs to flat-iron my hair (since flat-ironing my hair in the upstairs bathroom while she’s taking a steamy bath would be a futile prospect).
I was able to successfully finish the baskets and get them re-hidden and flat-ironed my hair before it was time to help her wash her hair – I’m pretty sure she didn’t notice that it took me three times longer than normal to flat-iron my hair. Ahem.
In other news… You know how when you lose something you retrace your steps to try to find it again? The same goes for when you think of something brilliant and it’s usually when you’re falling asleep or in the shower.
Yeah, well I had a brilliant thought I wanted to share with you as I was in the shower this morning – only when I finally remembered to sit down and write it out, for the life of me I couldn’t remember what it was. I just remembered it was brilliant.
Sorry, I couldn’t retrace my steps – it’s hard enough to get one shower in a day, no way would I have a chance to steal another. I’m sure if it was truly important it’ll come back to me (most likely when I’m falling asleep tonight…Murphy’s Law.)
Special Day… Hubby’s Birthday happens to be today – he took a vacation day so he could truly enjoy his day. I had to make sure all his gifts were wrapped and any surprises taken care of while he was at work last night since he does tend to hover a lot and I didn’t want to ruin any surprises I have in store for him.
I’ve always joked that he was really born on April Fool’s Day but didn’t want people to think him a fool, so he doubled down and picked today as his birthday instead.
I just didn’t see spending $25 plus shipping for a painted cardboard box. So I did what any crazy person would do, I made one myself. When I mentioned to Princess Nagger I was going to make one, she had the audacity to question my crafty skills. She even told me that if I would make one, it would totally be lame. Nice, huh? So I proved her wrong:
Apparently she changed her mind about my crafty skills – and she loved it so much that she fell asleep on the couch wearing it:
She even took it to school yesterday and wore it whenever she had the chance – and exclaimed “Best day ever!!” when she got home. I’m betting she’ll not question my crafty skills in the future.
