Sunday rest

I was at a conference for most of last week and last night we hosted Bear’s best friend and her parents for dinner. The conference was fine and the dinner was fun, but they’ve both left me spent. Being an introvert leaves me feeling pretty drained after lots of socialization. So, we decided to take today as a day of rest. Or, really, I did. Aaron did some grocery shopping and mowed the lawn. I enjoyed the rain and watching too many episodes of Friends.

Molly seemed pretty tuckered for most of the day, too, but recently pepped up and has spent the last hour or so running in and out of the backyard. Her cheeks are rosy and her smile is large. About two minutes ago, she came running in and said to me, “Where’s Phoebe?” I pointed to the couch. She said to me, “Phoebe’s friend is outside.” Then she walked over to Phoebe and got within inches of her nose and said to her, “Phoebe, your friend is outside!” She then went to the back door, opened it, waited for Phoebe to join her and the two of them went bounding out. Maybe Bear and Phoebe will be pals after all.

    A rainy rest day after all that is simply brilliant. And I can’t handle the cuteness of Molly and Phoebe, and Molly letting Phoebe know “her friend is outside!!” It’s always nice to know where your friends are. ❤

    I probably should have clarified that the friend in the story is the neighbor’s dog. They are fence friends.

    Thanks for clarification on Phoebe’s friend. I wasn’t sure where this story would end up!

    Well, she is very social.

All ready for her field trip to @aldoleopoldnaturecenter with #laphamelementary. . . . . . Outfit curated by Molly. But most clothes/hat courtesy of @oneil6298, @heather4sure, @marylloyd9165, and @ppacnj. #grateful #fieldtrip #firstgrade #madisonwi #parenthood #littleexplorers #aldoleopold
Happy birthday to my mom, @marylloyd9165. She’s given me more than I deserve and tolerates me more than she should. At this point, I know it may be more because I have some control over when she sees her grandchild, but I’ll take it. She’s the strongest woman I know and my role model. Happy birthday, mom. We love you! ❤️❤️❤️ . . . And I’d give anything to look that cute at any age. #mymommyhero #moms #mymom #myrolemodel
Damage. @costco contracted with #InnoveILogistics to deliver our @lgusa washer & dryer. But instead of delivering the products we paid for, the @costco delivery company, apparently run by @sears crashed into our house, damaged it, and sped off with our appliances. Ugh. #costco #customerservice #whatismytimeworth #disrespectful #damage #damageclaim #housedamage #nodelivery #LG #disappointed #shouldvegonelocal #searsdelivery
Slowlllllllly, but progress. These go to 96”! @cb2 @sherwinwilliams #cb2 #sherwinwilliams #olympuswhite #newhouse #freshcoatofpaint #thesegotoeleven
