Last minute loaves of bread, grocery shopping, killing roaches, fixing dinner, growing a baby, and remembering to fill up the gas tank are all tasks that are SO much easier with my hubs around.

We are actually fairing pretty well. Anthony is home taking care of stuff with family that can only be taken care of in person.
Side note: I've actually had a couple of you ask if he was home doing something related to adoption. That's not the case, but I find it so incredibly pleasant that that's the kind of thing you all have come to expect from us.
|Our bird holding the "bird pellets." We searched 4 different pet stores and this was the ONLY kind of bird food we could find. No bueno.|
|See? Hooks. They're tricky.|
For instance: my friend Anna, who lives in another country mind you and has 5 children of her own, visited with us over Chinese New Year. She apparently picked up on the fact that we order Dominoe's online to have it delivered. I kid you not folks, she wouldn't take no for answer, home girl is planning to order Dominoe's for us on Tuesday and have it delivered. (is this thing on?) SHE LIVES IN ANOTHER COUNTRY! Glory be. We are so blessed in our friends.

So when things don't work out- like our birdfeeders or the washer repair man never calling, or me most likely losing my phone by it falling into a pond- it's not the end of the world. We'll just regroup, move the feeders so the cats can't get to them, then add "birdSEED" to Daddy's ever-growing Target/Walmart list, self-balance the load in the wash so it doesn't rock and roll through the spin cycle, and use Daddy's phone 'til I get the energy to go buy another one and somehow communicate to all my friends here my new number.

Gotta go for now, the washer load is off-balance. Make it a good one today, mmmkay?
