Well, another Monday came and went. It was a rainy morning that started kind of slow for me because the sun didn't come through the house like it usually does. I finally did make it to work and realized I had missed a call from Danny. He was frantic looking for his ID, ATM card and iPod. I hadn't seen them, and he knew where he last had but wanted help retracing his steps. Unfortunately he had been a lot of places this morning:
Did you check the laundry? Yes
Did you check the garbage? Yes (even took it all out of the bags and placed into new bags-"open heat surgery on the garbage" per Danny)
Did you check the countertops next to the garbages? Yes
Did you check the garage on your way to pick up the garbage? Yes
Did you check you truck floor? Yes
Did you check the driveway at the school where you opened the door for Eliza? Yes
Did you check the highway...Did you lay them on my car...Did you place them on my trunk when putting Eliza in the truck...? OH NO!!!
A few minutes later the next phone call came to tell me that he found his iPod in the middle of the Highway obviously run over. His folder of photos he was taking with him to work were strewn all over the ditch for 1/4 mile, and his ID and ATM card were no where to be found. He was soaking from head to toe from searching garbages, driveways, streets and ditches in the rain. What a great Monday.
Well, the ATM card is cancelled and reordered and a replacement ID has been obtained. He is still out on iPod unfortunately. Maybe this is a good excuse to get the 80GB version... Always a silver lining right?!?!
The girls had some fun stuff happening today on a lighter note. Today was Skylar's first year of 1 hour dance classes with Tap, Jazz, and Ballet. She has Jazz shoes for the first time and LOVES them. Eliza is envious, but I told her to wait 3 years, then she could wear them.
Eliza has her last week of wearing a different color each day. Today was purple today. Here she is pictured in her purple shirt and her list of colors from Mrs. Cole.
She also read her first book to us tonight. The title was Shapes. There were five pages:
It is a circle.
It is a square.
It is a triangle.
It is a rectangle.
Circle, Square, Triangle, Rectangle.
She is supposed to be learning the sight words of It and Is through this book. It was so fun to see her beaming with confidence as she read to Danny and I. I will be sure to save this book for posterity!
P.S. Danny and I both lost our games during the first week of Fantasy Football. The hardest part to swallow is that I lost by 1 stinkin' point. UGGGHHH!!!
