Also known as yesterday.
We have a new niece!
|Whew, that was hard work.|
Phil's sister Kelly gave birth to Lenora Pearl yesterday, and she weighed in at a whopping 9 pounds even!
|Can someone turn down the lights in this joint?|
We can't wait to meet her!!
Last night we took a family walk after dinner and went to the library. Our kids were so excited to pick out books and stop to play at the playground on the way home. Seriously, we need to make this a weekly thing. Why haven't I taken advantage of the library more? I think I was scared of the possible lost books and fines.
Last night was the first time we turned on the AC's in the kids' rooms. We don't have central air (it's still a rarity around here with all the old houses) so Phil hates putting the window units in, but...but...we had to wake up Maggie and Alexander this morning! As opposed to every other morning when they wake the rest of us up before 6 am. I'm thinking it's AC all night, every night. Or maybe just long walks after dinner.
When I was headed to bed last night, I realized I hadn't seen the cat in a while. I asked Phil if he knew where she was and he went searching. He came back to bed saying he couldn't find her. My (Tiger) Mother's heart knew she wasn't ok. Then I remembered that when Phil had taken the AC units out of the crawl spaces upstairs, the doors had been left open for a bit. And there's nothing Evie like more than small spaces to squeeze into. So he went up to the boys' bedroom, moved sleeping Eamon's bed away from the crawl space door, opened it, and out came Evie with a yawn like she was having the best cat nap of her life.
Yesterday we watched the season finale of SNL we had recorded and were so sad to learn that Bill Hader, Seth Myers, Fred Armisen and now Jason Sudeikis are all leaving the show.
I could barely keep watching after Kristen Wiig left, but now? I don't think I can go on (with SNL, not with life in general).
But then I remembered that Arrested Development is coming back on Sunday! So...
