Get Things Done Mode
That’s what I’m calling this week. The first shot is the first of six art projects I’m working on this fall. I brought it with me to work while Lucy naps. We are on a Craigslist pick up right now. I’m buying two JJCole Bundle Mes for Lucy’s stroller. The first is a lighter weight for the crisp fall air. The second is the arctic version, which I hope I won’t need until the end of January. But it is my MO to buy a couple of the same things at once. With our first home, I bought five little tables one day. It totally transformed our space.
I’m also guilty of buying a lot of cleaning supplies. I inherited this from my mom. I told my mom that I was hopeful Lucy had inherited her cleanliness trait from her abuela. Twice I have been cleaning and Lucy has joined in. Once on the Amtrak back from NYC. I wiped off the seat after a blow out and she decided to clean the entire seat. It was the first thing to keep her quiet in a car full of business people. It wasn’t the quiet car, but I felt like it was.
A second time I was cleaning the floor beneath her high chair after breakfast. It was Wednesday, aka Laundry Day. She went over and found a wash cloth and knelt down beside me. After I told my mom both of these stories, she responded, “What kind of cleaning supplies does Martina use?”
So I reluctantly admit that once Lucy wakes from her nap, I plan to buy a steam mop. And a few other items, as well. Hopefully baby food, pants, socks and maybe a pair of shoes for Lucy. But what she really needs is some Tar Heel garb for this weekend’s homecoming for her first visit to Keenan stadium.
I hope she wakes. Can you see that goose egg on her noggin? She was pushing her little piano around as I was gathering our stuff and fell on her head. Yikes. I’m sure she is fine, but she let out a serious cry. One of those where she didn’t breath for several beats.
