Around the house
I have got so much to do around the house today it isn't funny. My room is disgusting. I have got to get organized. Look at the pile of clothes I need to wash and put away! I bought a plastic storage bin so that I can pack away my skinny clothes so that I don't have to look at them. They mock me.
I went to big lots today and found an awesome deal on a bike for Red. It is a Schwinn!! I got it for only $40!! It is purple with little flowers and streamers on the handlebars. I am giddy with excitement. Almost as if it were for me. I can't believe she is big enough to ride a bike...with training wheels of course. But still. She will be 4 in October. So I have to wait a 2 more months to give it to her. That's gonna be hard. Don't worry. It's stealthily hidden...under a blanket with part of the box peeking out.
This is a pic of my cradle that I have used for my kids. My grandpa made it when my oldest brother was born. It is a family treasure. I feel so blessed to use something that he made with his own hands. The babies that sleep in it are children he never met but would have loved so dearly. In a few days, this is going to be shipped off to Temecula for my new little nephew to sleep in so he can join in the wonderful family tradition. I'm going to miss having it, but so glad that all of us kids could use it for our own children.
