How did I miss this segment last week?
On to this week:
*I ended up unplugging the toaster oven after I caught Caecilia trying to toast my watch.
*We have been working on bed times and nap times with Caecilia. Things are getting better, but some days are just a fight. If I lay down with her, she goes to sleep most days. Nights are still a nightmare with her, as she is up every 10 minutes.
*Tomorrow is the Solemnity of the Annunciation of our Lord, look for more from me on that. Just know that a Solemnity trumps a Friday in Lent. Per Canon Law:
Can.Â 1251 Abstinence from meat, or from some other food as determined by the Episcopal Conference, is to be observed on all Fridays, unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday. Abstinence and fasting are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
*With that in mind, we are making this for the Solemnity. Oh, yes, I am excited about it.
*Back on to kids, we lost Caecilia last night. No, really. I went in to check on the kids before heading to bed last night and I couldn’t find her. I quietly and quickly looked in her usual spots and nothing. I looked in some unusual spots, like the bathtub and under the comforter I have laying on my rocking chair, nothing. I started praying then calling for her, got Joshua involved, telling him to check the screen, to make sure they were secure, they were. Just short of freaking out, I looked at one more spot, and there she was. She was half under my side of the bed, sleeping. I has missed her there because I didn’t think to look over there,Â as I had been over there 10 minutes before and she wasn’t there. After we found her, I turned to Joshua and cried, I was so very worried.
*The weather has turned warm, it has been above 85 since last Friday. Thankfully, it has not been humid, so we haven’t turned on the A/C yet, I am going to do the same thing I used to do, when we lived up north, when winter was coming, delay until I can’t bare it any longer.
*Benedict is such a good little guy. I set him on the floor about an hour ago and he is still crawling around, looking for for toys, spilling out toys and laughing.
*I am on the fence about going to the beach this weekend. Part of me says no, because of gas prices, but part of me wants to get away. I am going to Atlanta next weekend, so I think we will just stay put. Oh well, we have a kiddie pool we can fill up. 😉
*I started this postÂ earlier in the day and it is now 9:20, so we have had the Slab o’bliss. Yes, it was as good as the pictures look. Scroll down on my blog to see pictures of the one I made.
*I am off to finish my slice of the yummy dessert, as I wasn’t able to before. Hush, don’t judge, it is a Solemnity don’t you know.
