Macbeth the Usurper

Report Today

The parents came down today. They brought a cake for Jen. Mmm, raspberry mouse filling. Also, chicken noodle soup!

The child was turned up to "warlord" level last night. We needed all our tricks to get her to calm down enough to eat. Mommy and daddy had to also work out a few stress issues. Ah, the fallout that comes with changes.

Myself, I need to nap more in the morning and the afternoon. I need to wash dishes after breakfast and dinner. I check the water bottles after breakfast and dinner. I feed Jen. We'll see how this all falls out, and which balls hit the ground. We'll work at it until we can keep all the balls in the air.

We picked up a few iPods for our listening pleasure. Jen got herself a nano (partly a birthday present) while I picked up a shuffle. Good listening all around.

I've been chipping away at the stairwell. I finished with the spackling and hit it with a coat of ceiling white. (I have three cans of the stuff. May as well use it.) I'll need to do another coat tomorrow. After that, I need to repaint the steps, then put the new non-slip things onto the steps. After that, I need to tile the landing.

Right now, Joy is asleep in the car seat, Jen is asleep on the bed, and I am on watch.
