It has been a little while since I've blogged and I miss it. Paul has been away since last Saturday and so I have tried to be productive with my days to keep myself from getting bored with him being gone... so now our apartment is cleaner than ever before, my Christmas gifts for my family are all wrapped, Judah's-too-small-for-him-now clothes are all put away, and I finally got around to visiting the local flea market! It has been a fun week.
I have been trying so hard to get Judah to crawl again, but he just won't!! Wednesday night while I was at prayer meeting the nursery ladies said that he crawled for them... sheesh. My baby is a show off! The only thing he has been showing off for me this week has been his pooping skills... I think Paul must have a stern chat with him every time he leaves for a long time away from us because Judah ALWAYS does massively disgusting diaper stuff while Paul is gone. This evening I could smell it from the other side of the apartment. GROSS. When I came to see if I was truly smelling what I thought I was smelling I discovered it had gone through the diaper, all down his leg and it was in between his toes. DISGUSTING. The smell is now burnt into my nose and it makes me want to gag. I'm sure you're all glad I am back to blogging now, eh?! Ok... I shall change the subject.
I am rather pleased with myself for asking for something. I had made an order on Amazon for all the supplies to make Bubble Tea ... if you have never had Bubble Tea you must try it! Absolutely delicious and addictive! It's also a little pricey so I had the brilliant thought of ordering all the supplies to make it and then making it at home. So that's what I did. The company sent me an e-mail to tell me that they were out of one of the items, so I could either wait two weeks till they got the shipment of it in, or I could cancel my order. So I e-mailed them back and said I could wait, but could they send me something extra to make up for the wait. They said they would, so now I am getting two extra flavored powders along with my order - sweet! It NEVER hurts to ask for something!
That reminds me... a couple of weeks ago Paul and I were in Khol's and I found a coffee maker - it's regularly $100 and it was 60% off. I was pretty excited so I put it in our cart (because up until that day we were still using Paul's inventive coffee maker!) The only one they had left was the floor model, so when we got to the check out I asked if they could give us a discount since it was the floor model... we got an additional 15% off of the price... so the $100 coffee maker cost us $34! The new one has a timer on it and looks quite spiffy. Sometime when I am unlazy I will take a picture of it!
I will also take a picture of Judah's Christmas present. I am really excited about it! At the flea market I found some wooden (toy) tools. They look really neat! I am debating painting them or leaving them with the wood look. They look really cool and what's even neater is that a 72 year old man makes them :) He's a retired trucker and he had all sorts of wooden things he'd made to sell. I will take a picture of it soon and poll ya'll to see what I should do about painting them!
