Hey there y'all!
I was a bit of an iPhone photo flunkie this week so today's edition of Insta-Friday will be short and sweet*.
After being derailed by a nasty stomach virus for two days, with the main goal of moving as little as possible and, you know, not dying, I returned to the land of the vertical Wednesday. I attempted to appease some of my mom guilt (Annelise had pretty much fended for herself most of Monday and spent Tuesday at her grandparents house) by having a Game-A-Thon Wednesday afternoon with Annelise. We played Pentago, Banana Grams, and then move on to Sorry.
We hit a bit of a stumbling block when we realized the only directions included in the box were in Spanish.
Yo hable espanol un pequeno. Ole.
However thanks to the wonder of the internets we were able to proceed.
I can never play Sorry without thinking of Eunice from the Mama's Family skits on The Carol Burnet Show and being sorely tempted to wave my pawn in my opponent's face while drawl-yelling SOooo-rrRR-YYYY across 42 syllables. Don't worry, I restrained myself.
Do y'all remember that skit?
After 10 years (or is it 11?) our trusty washing machine gave up the ghost.
For the past two evenings Scott and I have been shopping for a new one and trying to make heads or tails of front loading machines vs. energy efficient top loading vs. old school washers.
All while our dirty laundry accumulates.
I think we're just this side of close to making our decision.
Since Annelise is now a shoe-tying superstar I had to snap a photo of her in action. She's even been known to untie her shoes on purpose just to show off her mad new tying skills, which is funny, but I bet that novelty wears off soon.
So, why did Scott get up waayyy before the crack of early yesterday morning?
I watched it much later, with coffee, thanks to the miracle known as DVR.
It was bittersweet. Sigh.
Be sure to pop over to Life Rearranged for more Insta-Friday fun.
Happy weekending my friends!
*Hmm...maybe this post wasn't so short and sweet after all. Lo siento.
