THE GOOD STUFF – DAY 22: JANUARY 26, 2017
* COSMO SEEMS TO HAVE FIGURED OUT WHERE HE LIKES TO GO POTTY
This is huge. It means less time wandering the backyard in the cold. He pretty much goes straight to the corner, does his business and then he’s ready to go back inside.
* I ORDERED A $50 DRESS, BUT GOT $10 OFF
I LOVE the dress. I’m nervous it won’t fit me, but if not – hopefully, it will serve as motivation to lose some weight so I can wear it. I was really on the fence about buying it, but Eric was super supportive and liked it. And then I saw it on someone in person (on a video) and fell even more in love with it. And because I had recently gotten something else from the same place, I had a $10 off coupon. I love when I can save money.
* I MADE MYSELF GO TO THE STORE
Lex is going on a winter campout this weekend and needed a few things. Instead of bugging Eric to grab things for me on his way home, I actually went myself. (Well, I took Lex and Zach) The store didn’t have EXACTLY what we needed, but it had the essentials so I think Lex will be okay.
* WE DIDN’T HAVE TO GO THE ER
At dinner Ailey was complaining that her wrist hurt. When we looked at it, it was red and a little swollen. Eventually she fessed up that she had kind of bit her wrist (in an effort to make the pain lessen), and that explained how red it was. After a little bit the red had lessened, but it was still a little swollen. We watched it for a few more hours and before bed it looked better. Pretty sure she just bruised it somehow.
* ERIC AND I TRIED A NEW GAME
Eric had sort of played before but wanted to introduce me to it. We enjoyed it, even though we technically lost. But since they have you play a tutorial game first, they don’t let you lose.
* THE KIDS WENT TO BED WITHOUT A FIGHT
I love the nights when they actually go to bed when they are asked to and they don’t try to find ways to stay awake.
