|She knows how cute she is|
In case you couldn't see those blurry kicking feet:
While Cordelia is stuck wearing Faith's old stuff, Faith is rocking new stuff from Old Navy. The life of the second child is hard already.
|That baby can suck it, I am FABULOUS in my new clothes|
Since yesterday was such a nice day, I took the kids to the playground after I picked up Faith from school and then we went to Target, so that meant we didn't get back to the house until almost 5pm. When I took the baby upstairs for a nap, I was hit by a heat wave when I walked up the stairs. We have dual zone heating/air conditioning so I hadn't realized that the upstairs AC wasn't working until it was well over 80 degrees up there.
Here's a fun fact for you: I can't tolerate being hot when I'm trying to sleep. I basically turn into this:
|If you get this reference, then we'd be friends|
Luckily, the overnight temperatures were cool enough to bring the inside temperature below 80 degrees upstairs by bedtime. To keep the air flowing, we had to sleep with the windows open. No big deal right?
First of all, what is up with the stupid birds who sing at night? Don't they work union hours? Both kids were up during the night, which is sadly typical, but then I realized that we have a serious problem here: Idiotic chickens. Guess what you dumbass roosters, the sun does NOT rise at 4:30am, there is no reason for all that godforsaken racket.
|The only kind of dumbass chicken I like|
The roosters must have woken up the cows because then everyone was mooing up a storm, all before 5am. I actually contemplated driving down there to feed the damn cows so they'd shut up already, but I'm more of a "sit and stew" type. I finally had to close my windows to get some peace and quiet but then it felt hot and stuffy.
Feel bad for me yet? Oh, how I have suffered.
We had an AC repair company out here this morning and Cletus the Slack Jawed Yokel was able to fix a busted cable on our unit and get the whole thing working again for less than 200 bucks, so today is already looking up. It's been a hard week for everyone, so I wanted to share the good news that I will be able to sleep in chilled silence tonight. I bet that fact will make people in Waco, TX feel better.
Did you have to wear hand-me-downs when you were growing up, or did you get the new stuff? I had an older brother so I got all new clothes. Cordelia gets new stuff too, but I feel like this will be more of an issue as they get older.
Have you ever been woken up by a loud farm animal? I remember once on vacation, there was a donkey that let out a loud "HEE HAWWW" every morning at 5am. What is up with these animals and getting up before the sun?
