On better news, Garrett's birthday went well. I'm not sure he even cared, really. I gave him the little touch leap pad. He loved it. Played with it all day, any chance he got. So far, he only has the book that came with it. Mom got him 'The little Train that Could', but he won't get that until Saturday. I also got him a book "Mr. Brown can moo, can you?". I'm thinking I'll give that to him Saturday too. He's already seen it, but I'm sure he hasn't made the connection yet. That'll come next year :P
I'm quite proud of myself. I managed to get the kitchen clean..before and after dinner. I'd lay claim to cooking, but D cooked dinner tonight so I could watch I-Robot. Good flick, by the way.
Cleaning the kitchen included getting the dishes done in the dishwasher, washing the pots and pans from last night...and then from tonight in the after dinner cleaning. Cleaning out the high chairs, one of which needs to be taken apart and washed. Thus, I have to clean off the chair its on. Which led to sweeping the ktichen floor...and discovering water spilled upon said floor. Of course, I wiped that up. I cleaned the stove..twice. Hopefully, this will run smoother now, and I'll only have to clean the kitchen once.
