I wish my children would stop getting up so early. Lil N got up at 5:15am this morning. The wife has had it bad for the past month, so I got up. No getting that kid back to bed, so we turned on the TV and watched some Jack's Big Music Show. But of course, once that was over she started calling for mommy 'cause I guess I'm chopped liver. After 15 minutes of whining, the wife caved and had to come out to keep the peace. *sigh*


In other news, the swingset is on it's way. Walmart gave me a tracking number, but I was having trouble using it to find out where my shipment was. But I found ANOTHER website owned by the parent company, so now I know that it's sitting in Fairfield, OH. I bet it will be here by Wednesday. I actually hope so. That would mean that I could put it together on Saturday as long as it is nice out.


When the last wind storm hit about a month ago, it flipped over my grill and busted up the plastic table that I've had since I moved into the house 9 years ago. So, the other day we went out and bought a table and chairs from Old Time Pottery. While it was made in China, I was actually quite impressed with the quality of the paint job on it. I'll have to post some pics of it soon.


On Sunday, I finally got outside to rake the rest of the leaves that had been sitting out there since last fall. It took a while, but now it's done. Thank goodness. It's been driving me nuts all winter.

your daughter cried "daddy" for five minutes after you left so, you are not chopped liver. i think she gets a little put out, when we are on the lap top. right now she's tolerating arthur on pbs, after her crying jag.

re: waking too early.

Yeah, I feel your pain. Poet has been getting up early for... well... I can't exactly remember how long. I think the latest she's slept is 6:30A, which happened maybe once or twice. Usually it's 4:45 to 5:30A. This morning, she went off *really* early, so we let her cry it out. Not sure what time Amy finally got up...

re: swingset

Glad you finally figured out the tracking number. I discussed with Amy, we're good to go whenever you're ready.
