Rain nor sleet nor snow can stop
*Nelson has shingles. He's had a rash on his side for about a week. He showed it to me last week and I suspected it was an infection. He was sure it was something more sinister. I think I was closer to right. He went to the doctor yesterday and he feels really vindicated that he has an honest to goodness illness and not one of his I-need-to-go-to-Urgent-Care-I'm-so-sick-only-to-find-out-it's-just-a-cold illnesses.
*Boy are playing quietly upstairs. Trouble.
*I cleaned my refrigerator from top to bottom yesterday. I took out the selves and scrubbed them and everything. The life of a housewife is exciting.
*Oscar was off school for two of three days last week. I'm hoping for a full week. It's looking promising thus far.
*Now that I've got some good toy organization, my next project is going to be decorating the living room. I have two blank walls. On one of them, I'm going to do a kiddie art gallery. Ikea has these really cheap multi-colored frames for like $2 each or something and I've been putting aside Oscar's choicest work over the school year. And then on the other wall I'm going to do framed family photographs, college style. I have this whole vision of how neat it will look; lots of different sized and colored frames; portraits mixed with candids. I'm kind of hoping by talking about these projects I'll be motivated to DO these projects. We'll see about that.
*Did you know that the IRS is not accepting tax returns until February 14 because the tax laws were signed so late last year? And I was so on top of that this year.
*We switched to cheaper coffee this week. It is not as delicious.
*Nelson and I both bit the bullet and got iPhones this weekend. Neither one of us has ever purchased a phone; we've either gotten free phones or hand-me-down phones, so this is a huge move for us. Now we are total iPhone converts and are unsure how we lived so long without them. Hopefully the money we are saving on coffee will cover the increase in our phone bill. Heh.
