How many times have I said these words (or variations thereof) in the last two days? Inumerable. Peanut always picks the times I have eardrops in my ear and am lying down with them for 15 minutes per ear to get into things she shouldn’t. Why is this? Do you think she knows I’m incapacitated at the time and can’t get to her. It must be because at these times she goes for the good stuff. My wallet, very sharp kitchen scissors, and my make-up drawer just to name a few. Also, just FYI, a tiny bit of facial cleanser will remove eye shadow and pencil from carpet when regular carpet cleaner won’t. Sadly, yes, I know this from experience. :S
I’ve also been doing some more serious packing the last couple of days. All pictures are down and my apartment feels suddenly very boring. And somehow bigger. And also really echo-y. While packing them away Peanut broke two frames (yes it was another one of those “don’t touch!” episodes) and I had to remove her from the area so I didn’t break one over her little noggin to knock her out just so I could get some peace for a minute. *sigh* She’s trying to be helpful but really? Not so much. I’ve since learned that a little Backyardigans goes a long way. She’ll happily watch and leave me alone to pack things. It’s fantastic. Because of this things went much better today than yesterday. I still have miles to go but stopped to make dinner tonight. I haven’t made anything since last Friday when I made a crock pot roast from Trader Joe’s which was awesome and tried these really yummy roasted garlic potatoes Lauren told me about the day before. They were so, so good. She might post the recipe on her blog so I won’t write it out here, but trust me, they are worth a go.
Anyway, I think things are moving along slowly but surely. I’m gradually being surrounded by boxes which means things are getting packed and after dinner I’m hoping to pack away all my serving pieces. I may not have mentioned it, but in case you couldn’t tell, I hate packing.
