I haven’t given any Three Beautiful Things lately, and I need a little pick-me-up, so I thought I’d share some with you all right now.
1. Parker is in his own bedroom!! He slept in his crib all the way until 2 am last night. Then he spent the rest of the night with Ches and me. It’s an improvement! I think the ceilings turned out well (for those that have asked… I don’t remember what the technique is called. It looks kind of like stucco, but less severe. Our walls are all orange peel, and the ceilings are not. BTW, what is this California ceiling some of you have mentioned??) and I’m proud of myself for doing everything except 2/3 of the scraping of the popcorn. I even moved the furniture and stuff all by myself. Now that the living room is cleared up… I’m ready for the Christmas tree! 🙂 It’s amazing all the things in our lives that have become affected by the ceiling in one little room.
2. Boxes of Swiss Miss hot chocolate was on sale the other day at Albertson’s for $1 a box. I only bought 2 boxes (I had a limited budget and a few things I had to buy), but I love what I have. I got one box of dark chocolate delight and one regular milk chocolate. At this very moment I am drinking some of the dark chocolate. Whenever I need chocolate but we don’t have any around the house, I drink hot chocolate. Mmmmmm. I’m more addicted to hot chocolate than I am to Scrabbulous.
3. I got three loads of laundry folded so far today! Yay! I have a load in the dryer that needs to be folded, then a load of towels that is about to go into the dryer. I swear that laundry is the never-ending battle. I dream of actually having two washers and two dryers some day. Seems silly, I’m sure, but maybe then I could stay a bit more caught up. Then again, I need others to fold and iron for me so I don’t get behind in that, but we’ll figure that out if/when we get the two washers and two dryers. Anyway, actually folding the laundry… that’s a big deal for me. Now I just have to get it all put away before some little monsters climb onto my bed and decide nothing else can be on the bed with them. It’s been known to happen.
