Has it really been a week?

I keep wondering where the time has gone...it's been a week since I posted. Crazy times..it feels like it was just yesterday. So, for an update...my daughter is terrified of her Glow Worm and the music from the Ice Cream truck. And today, when I really needed a nap before work, when the Ice cream truck made 5 or 6 passes through our neighborhood, music blaring at ungodly levels, I contemplated what I could do to blow up the truck. Especially with my baby screaming and clawing at me. I tried laying down in her bed with her, and finally brought her to bed with me. She laid really still, but I knew she was awake...so neither of us got a good nap. And check out Cole's blog for the story about her glow worm fear.....

Yesterday, our presidency was having a "play date"...but I knew I had to get my chores done first. It was my only day to get my monthly grocery shopping done, and I had to go to both Target and Costco. So, I woke up early (6:30...ouch...I am so not a morning person)....got showered and ready, and as soon as Talia woke I changed her diaper, scooped her into the car, and off we went. It went really well...she ate breakfast in the grocery cart, and it occupied her for a good portion of our time....I just wish she would learn not to wander off when I put her down...When I was finally done with all my errands, I stopped at Christie's to see if they were still playing...and they had just started!!!! So, I watched crafty people make really cool stuff, and took home a cute headband and butterfly bow's for Talia...I'll have to post some pics later.

The afternoon was swimming at my mom's, and then I talked Cole into making Indian Chicken for dinner (yummy!!!)...but I was exhausted by the end of the day....

So, watch for deconstruction and reconstruction photos...we're tearing apart our main floor this week to put down new hardwood floors.....and paint....
