Having bacon and avocado to add to my salad for lunch yesterday.Sleeping a full eight hours in a row last night. That's right, no getting up to pee. No cat chewing on furniture waking me up, no daughter calling out for a hug and kiss, no spending an hour getting back to sleep after rolling over. Just eight hours of glorious sleep. Don't think I didn't understand this morning that that was probably the last time for a loooooong time, and give many thanks to the sleep gods.
Alla's thrill and pride over her somersaulting.
Parent-Teacher conferences this morning at Alla's preschool where her teacher, Kelli, had nothing but adoring praise for how our daughter is progressing. I felt like my own mother sitting there, kind of surreal to be the parent sitting in a conference, rather than the kid being talked about.
A clean house.
Putting every single CD I own on my new iPod. This is a monumental feat. We have four big cases full of at least 100 CDs each, and I'm only just getting through the first one. Currently uploading: The Best of Sade.
Leftover chicken-couscous salad for lunch.
Alla eating her first s'more for an after-lunch treat. I should add, she always gets bites of mine, but today finally asked for her own. This took her a full fifteen minutes to eat, you have just never seen someone enjoy a s'more like this. Which was great cause I got to enjoy my cup of ginger-peach tea and Girl Scout Trefoils. What she had to say about her very own s'more: It has marshmallow! AND chocolate! AND big cracker! I didn't know you could stack it like that!
