Fast forward

I'd just like to say, whoever hit the fast-forward button, could you take you finger off it for a minute? Thanks :)

What's been up lately? Not a lot. Mr Lazy-pants to your left still isn't walking on his own yet. Although ... I'm not complaining. Not really. He's standing pretty well and can take a few steps with customer support, so that's promising. Otherwise, he's doing pretty normal 19 month old stuff. He got a Mega-Blocks plastic truck from my mother for Christmas, which is full of chunky plastic blocks,and he's been having fun with those _ stacking them ... throwing them ... hiding them ... you know; regular stuff. :)

I'm working days this week, which I don't mind but I'm still not good at getting up as early as I should. But I get there, I do my eight hours, I go home. Could be worse.

I went to Twilight on Friday, which I enjoyed about as much as the book. I liked the book, didn't love it and felt the same way about the movie. Robert Pattinson (although mostly annoying and sulky as Edward) is very, very pretty. Oh, my yes.

It was stinker today, with the temperature reaching, at the very least, the high 20s. It's on days like this I understand why dogs go and pant in the shade. It was what I felt like doing. Either that, or crawling under my desk in my stuffy office and letting the sleep have me.

Mmmmmmmmm ... sleeeeeeeeeeeep ...

We took Patrick to the beach for the first time yesterday and as much as he hates grass, he loooooved the sand _ crawled along, inspecting shells, getting the sand everywhere .... good times :)

He's still not walking yet and we're like cheerleaders when we see him almostabouttosurely .... but I also know that when he does, we're going to look at each other and say "what the hell did we teach him that for?"

His vocab has stretched to include ''bye'' and ''go", which he said to me one day as I was getting ready for work. I popped my head around the door of the living room to say something to Jeremy and young Mister put his arm up in an imperious fashion ... "go" he said to the female slave ... *sigh*

Otherwise, things tick over as they always do.

I'm stiching, sort of, in fits and starts, on the EMS Kitchen Alphabet for now.

It's progressing ... slowly.
