Seriously. Enough with the warp speed calendar.
Let's see, what the heck have I been up to? Well, we had our week in Windsor. That was nice, Charles got to relax for an extended period of time, and cwsmithiv
enjoyed the extra freedom of space that came with not being around our mess. :) He became very good at pulling up on furniture and cruising from one piece to another to get around. The boy can crawl just fine, but if he has the choice he'll pull up on something and stand/walk every time.
In other news, I found a white hair the one day that I used the blow dryer. Unrelated? I think not.
I just finished two new photoshoot outfits for Shannon, and I *really* wish I'd taken pictures before giving them to her. I'll have to wait until she gets them back after the shoot to show them off. One was a Mrs. Claus outfit, and the other was the Elf that Santa doesn't tell the wife about. ;) Both had waist cinchers, and I had a lot of fun figuring out how to dress them up. Again, pictures will have to be forthcoming.
Not working Dickens full time this year, but it looks like it might work out to be about half the time. I was there for opening day and I'll be back this coming Saturday, and then at least one day closing weekend. I like it. I still get to be there and feel productive, but I don't have to worry about every little thing because I'm just a temp. Yay lack of responsibility! (But I can still get tickets at the performer price, so if you're going, tell me!)
At home there is a push to try to clean up the living room for a couple of reasons. One, this disturbingly mobile baby demands more room to play and a safer place to do it, so that's pretty pressing. The other is that I didn't have a Christmas tree last year, dang it, and I want one this year!! I'm not sure how to make that work with the baby around, maybe have a little tree up on a table or something, but I don't want to be decoration-less again. It's depressing.
I've bought all of 1/2 of a Christmas present so far. Good thing I don't have an office job, huh? I've been telling Charles that we need to sit down and make a plan so that I can then put it into action. It's funny, but I don't have any desire to buy stuff for the baby. He doesn't care, and I get stuff for him all the time anyway. He's going to like the paper better than presents, we all know it!la_caballera
will be home in less than two weeks from her first semester at law school. Mom and I are very excited. I can't believe I haven't seen her since August. That's just entirely too weird.
And this, dear friends, is why I don't post much. That's about all I have to say that is even remotely interesting! All I do is keep the baby alive, sew, and occasionally sleep. Boooooring.
