Mundane Monday – 8/16/10

16 08 2010

Do I need to bother with the intro any more? I guess if someone came in with this as their first post, they’d probably wonder what I’m doing…

So. Mundane Monday is all about celebrating the ordinary things that make life beautiful. I’ll write about my week, and then you tell me about your week.

  • Someone found my blog by using the search term “prostituting myself.”
  • I went to a birthday party for a 4-year-old.

    They had a helicopter piñata...

    ...and a helicopter cake...

    ...and my amazingly talented friend Mimi crocheted a Rambo Monkey for the birthday boy! (The clothes? Removable. Mimi is a fricking genius!)

  • A few nights ago, as Little G was falling asleep, he sat straight up and said, “Choo-choo!” in a little tiny voice. I told him, “We can watch Thomas tomorrow,” and he said, “Yeah.” He dozed off soon afterward, muttering, “Choo-choo…”
  • I got new sunglasses.

    Which means Little G can have my old glasses.

  • Little G, who’s in speech therapy, climbed up on the arm of our couch and said, “1-2-3 JUMP!” and then flung himself onto the cushions. I can count that as a full sentence, right?
  • We’re trying to refinance our house. If we’re successful, we’ll save at least $200 a month. (Say some prayers for success, won’t you?)
  • All the boys went to a fathers & sons campout, and I had an entire evening to myself.

My life is beautifully common.

*Mimi is happy to custom craft a monkey if you’re interested. She also does other animals with her mad crocheting skillz. I’m betting she’d make nifty outfits, too. Let me know if you need her info!

“skillz”???!!! Are you nuts? Haven’t we had conversations about this issue?

Happy, beautiful moments:
Sitting quietly outside with Big G while he watched with wonder a bird taking a bath in the stream!

Little G sharing my ice cream and looking very happy about it!

My life is anything but mundane because I have you and the two G’s!

I sent 58 individual emails for Relief Society and managed to do it in one evening.

I got all my laundry washed (now I just have to figure out who is going to fold it all and put it away)

I had a fun chat with the exterminator when she came to spray the basement for spiders (how sad is that that I am so starved for adult conversation that I follow the exterminator around as she kills bugs in my house? Hey- she is mormon and from Utah.)

My favorite this week- Baby C got his first tooth 🙂
