Morning: Dropped off two large garbage bags of old baby clothes and one box of baby shoes at a clothing donation charity. (It was all girl stuff that we can’t use for Benjamin, and stuff that was too small to give to the neighbors’ baby girls.) Shopped at Dollar General. Naptime Movie: Tucker & Dale[...]
Billy Bob’s Burgers, Killeen, Texas (Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) We had lunch at Billy Bob’s Burgers, our second visit there. Rebecca had a couple of bites of bun, one bite of meat, and two tater tots — and a lot of Mommy’s pink lemonade. I still think they’re the[...]
Ikea in the morning; ate in the store. Picked up a teapot for my wife, 2 Bygel rails, 1 Grundtal rail, and a few other items for me. The rails are now attached to my new garage shelves, where I can hang things from them. Also bought silicone pot holders. They work better than expected.
My wife worked 1-11 p.m. today, an odd night shift. In the morning, she and Rebecca went grocery shopping. Mistake. Who knew everyone else in town went grocery shopping on Labor Day morning? We figured it wouldn’t be crowded then, but it was.
Picked up some sheet sets, a comforter, and a mattress protector for the bunk bed mattresses. Rebecca really wanted a Spongebob Squarepants lunchbox (which was only $6), but I told her she can’t go to school as long as she’s still in diapers. During Mommy’s hair appointment, Rebecca watched the entirety of “Shrek” (90 minutes),[...]
105°F today. Swam in late morning — after picking 12-15 deck chairs out of the pool, which is becoming a regular routine. This time I took a photo of the chairs in the pool to send to the HOA. When I reported it before, they acted like they didn’t believe me.
One piece of furniture we’re still lacking (for the future) is a bed for Rebecca. She’s been sleeping on a futon on the floor, and seems to really like that, but… it’s unseemly. We’d decided on a bunk bed setup for her and a (future) sibling. It should be the kind that can separate into[...]
First thing, checked sink for leaks — none. New faucet is higher, swivels, and is brushed nickel finish instead of chrome.
Again, humid & cooler than usual (only 90°F today) then rain in the afternoon. This morning, Rebecca cut her first two top molars, finally bringing her upper teeth into balance with her lower ones. She has 16 teeth now; only four to go.
July 2: mowed in a.m.; afternoon: visited Big Lots & Target. Rebecca held coupons for me and handed them to the cashier when prompted. July 3: Rebecca ate a grape for the first time. We’d given up offering them to her since she always refused. Today, she asked me for a “bah” (her word for[...]
