The Texture Of Things

Not Dead. But feels like it.

January 28th, 2008

Here’s the thing. We have the respiratory plague. We cough, we sneeze, we don’t sleep, we don’t blog. Even Nyquil won’t help that.

Or maybe it will….

I don’t know – I haven’t taken it yet.

Anyway, here’s some milestone-y moments from the texture house.

1. The tot is finally, finally beginning to use the word “because” correctly. Now, every 20th use of the word makes sense.
Before: “I’m sad because I’m sad.” A little deterministic, dontcha think?
Or: “[Toy name]* hurt her head because I need a drink.” Oh, you and me both, kid.
Or: “Is it Monday Night Football? Because Daddy’s at work now.” Um, yeah.

The other day: “There’s five Backyardigans in here [meaning a box she keeps them in] because Uniqua is in there too.” Normally, she only keeps the other four in this box.

Huzzah!

2. The tot is figuring out how to blow her nose. Ah, the joys of snot! But Ah! The Joys Of Her Blowing Her Own Nose! She still needs help, but at least she’s making progress.

3. HG and I continue to be employed, which is kind of saying something given our state’s economy. Blackboard is not as hard as I thought it would be, just different. Getting a decent night’s sleep in this house is harder than entering grades, although lately that’s not saying much.

*I can’t reveal the toy name because she names her toys the weirdest names, and one mention of such a name will result in everyone I know and their neighbor finding this blog. Email me if you are curious.

    I’m just so fortunate that the parts of my family who would be offended by the things in my blog have no idea how to even go about trying to find it. Even though they know about other parts of my site! It’s nice when the people you criticize using a technological solution are Luddites.

    Dood. You mean they have the internet on computers these days?

    How did they not see the whole “BLOG” thing on your website? FTW?

    :sigh: I’m just jealous.

    Yeah. Adding the “/blog” at the end of my domain is just not something they would ever think to do. On account of the very little thinking they do anyways. Oh. And the “BLOG” thing on my website is smoke & mirrors! I went to Ninja school! It’s all in the art of misdirection!
