Random Things on a Thursday

I was getting ready to leave for t-ball practice last night and the battery in the Jeep was dead. It wouldn't have bothered me so much except all the t-ball equipment is with me... So T had to come home (instead of straight to the field after work) and pick up everything and take D. There really wasn't anything I could do about it, but I still felt bad because they were late. So I made cookies for them.

I started making my turkey BLTs in wrap form. The spinach and herb wraps are the best. Unfortunately I ran out of bacon and ranch dressing yesterday. It's just not the same.

Speaking of bacon. Check out this flowchart that Dwija posted yesterday.

Sometimes keeping a two year old entertained at D's t-ball games is difficult. Usually I bring lots of snacks, a drink and some sort of toys. She ends up trying to run away after a few minutes. On Monday I brought the little bottles of bubbles that the kids got in their Easter baskets. I spent quite a few minutes struggling to keep Rose in a defined space (on the picnic blanket I had) until I remembered the bubbles. We took a short walk and both kids were occupied for the last inning simply blowing bubbles and I got to watch D bat, run the bases and score a run!

I was asking Rose what color certain things were over the weekend and we started with something yellow. Now she asks if everything is "yayow". I was getting her dressed and put a green shirt on her and she asked, "Is this yayow?" and I said no it was green. Instead of her accepting that she tried to take it off while saying, "No! I don't want this! I want yayow!" Well... apparently I pass up every item of yellow clothing because she has zero "yayow" in her closet.

I drank half a gallon of water yesterday. That's kind of a big deal for me. 


  1. congrats on the water chugging and i finally got around to frying some bacon in the oven... thank you for this wonderful new way to consume crispy yummy mass amt of pork!

  2. Haha!! My oldest was obsessed with yellow for a while...he's grown out of it ;)
