Boy, does time fly when you have too much to do! LOL! With just over 2 weeks before the Liberty Girl Retreat I still have plenty I need to be getting done for that. I am also still trying to unpack dishes and clothes. One of my bookshelves had a bit of a break down during the move, but Sione is planning on nailing it back together this Saturday. Once he gets that done I can finish unpacking my books. The other 3 bookshelves are all unpacked very nicely. Because of course books come before clothing and dishes….haha. To be honest I have been working on the clothing and the dishes longer. The books were just more fun, and helped me reach the others easier without having heavy boxes of books in the way. I have to admit it was a little hard deciding which of my books would have to stay in boxes for a little longer. It was like deciding which friends could come out of storage and which would have to stay behind. At least they will all be out in the fresh air by Sunday.
Our new fridge has a door in need of help. It won’t stay closed. I don’t particularly care for warm milk, so it bothers me. We figured out that by pushing the kitchen garbage can in front of the fridge door that it will stay closed. I thought of duct tape first, but I don’t know where any is. 😛
After about 4 or 5 trips to the post office I think we have it worked out so our mail will be delivered to our community box that I have a key to open. I hope. I really don’t want to keep going back. Not that the postal employees seem like anything but nice, I just am not a big fan of lines. I don’t have the patience for it usually. Lines are something that I consider a waste of time, unless I have something to do, something to read, or someone to talk to while I wait.
Tevita has got me wondering if he has a future in gymnastics. He loves to jump off of things and land with both hands in the air and say “yes!” Even if the jump is just off of the bottom stair. It seems like he is “sticking the landing” and doing that little salute gymnasts do. We did catch about 5 minutes of a gymnastics meet on TV the other day. That is probably where he got it. It is just so funny to see.
Losahina’s vocabulary has just exploded. It is so fun to talk to her. Listening to her answers gives me the feeling that she is going to be quite the competition for Alena as she gets older. As long as they don’t get upset that the other is taking their “air time” I think they will get along really well.
I am getting used to having a gas range again. It has been a long time. Over 9 years now. There is always a smell of gas when the oven or a stove burner start up, and I always worry that the oven didn’t light. I have to keep checking until I feel heat to make sure that everything is ok.
Stand for Something.
