I feel as though I haven’t written a real post in awhile. I’m sorry. Just not too much going on. Sophie is growing, I’m back at work, the weather is pretty nice…same stuff! Let’s see what random tidbits I can dig up in the 20 minutes I have left at work.
Mr. Creeper is so loving that I’m back to work. He’s up to his old tricks-standing at my window…looking at me…making incredibly awkward conversation. He told me I should go to this concert on Tuesday night at SAU. I told him “no thank you, Tuesday is Turkey Chili and Biggest Loser night”. He then asked me if I thought he should go on the Biggest Loser. This guy is overweight, so of course I think he should. I just shrugged my shoulders and said “if you want to”. Could I make it any more obvious that I’m not real interested in talking to him…? I don’t want to be mean. Please, Mr. Creeper don’t make me be mean.
Never attempt to put a headband on my baby.
I went for a lovely walk with Becky and the boys this morning. We’re having a cookout on Saturday too! I am greatly enjoying having a “mom-friend” because 1)She knows what the heck she’s doing 2)Sophie automatically has some buddies 3)She likes to exercise and 4)She’s very easy to make conversation with. As an added bonus, her husband is a runner and is already friends with Kevin. Works out nicely, doesn’t it?!
We had a staff meeting yesterday morning out in Dearborn. The meeting was okay, but the highlight of my morning was the Italian-themed potluck lunch. My co-worker Russ brought canolies. Holy-camoley, I love canolies. Someone also brought tiramisu. YUM. That’s why I always enjoy staff meetings-the food is incredible. I also get to duck out of work half hour early today so that I don’t go over on my hours.
I found this hilarious birthday card for my dad. He’s turning 50 on Monday. On the front it said “It’s your birthday! Don’t just stand there”. And then on the inside: “At least, not without some assistance”. I seriously laughed out loud in the store and knew right away that it was the winner 🙂
Sophie is such a smiley, happy baby. She can play for about an hour on her own-either on her playmat or in her bouncer chair-just smiling and laughing at the toys. It is so cute. This morning I was laying down and I held her up in the air (Superman!) and she gave me the biggest grin. I about died of happiness! She smiled AT me! I made her happy!
I’ve found a race. Kevin is going to do a 30K in August (that’s around 18 miles, folks) and so I decided I am going to do it too. I’ve been running every night this week and I’m really enjoying it. I love rediscovering old loves, and running is definitely an old flame 🙂
Speaking of rediscovering old loves, I have not used my crockpot since the move. But what shall I make? I really want to make a soup of some kind, but really anything will do. Any suggestions? If you suggest what I end up making you are automatically invited for dinner. So suggest away.
Alright, well I’m outta here! Time to go home to my loving husband and smiley baby girl!
