My husband is asleep. My toddler is asleep. My baby is asleep. This is unheard of. So, what do I do? Do I run off to the kitchen to wash the dishes?
Perhaps then, the laundry?
Well, am I picking up th-
No! Just…no. I’m saying hello to the internet! Hello, internet! I have crocheted a wee bit more, but I still can’t post any pics of my project. Therefore, to stave off nopictureitis (a common malady seriously detrimental to a blog) we’re going to have a Show-and-Tell Wednesday.
Greg and I went shopping this weekend, so I could buy a new shirt (I am in desperate need of nice-casual attire). We went to Ross, which was a madhouse, but I came home with this:
(Why am I such a ham? The world may never know. Oh, and I’ve just realized it looks like I’m scratching my head. I’m not, I was brushing my hair back. I was! Shut up.)
While I was shopping for a shirt, Greg wandered aimlessly (and unsupervised) through the store. To my surprise, he did not come back looking to buy a giant inflatable motorcycle-riding Santa. He had found this:
You may be having trouble seeing the words due to the glare – it reads: “No Success Can Compensate for Failure in the Home.” It’s a very famous quote (at least in our church) by David O.

We bought it, and it’s hanging on our wall now – that’s something that we, as parents, try to remember.
And, before we conclude Show-and-Tell Wednesday, I have to wax romantic about my new shoes.
I love my new shoes. They are the cutest shoes I have owned in years. (Seriously, it’s been so long since I’ve worn a heel that I’ve been practicing in them.) They are cute, and I love them, and they are brown and cute and my cute brown shoes and hey! Did you notice? They go with my new shirt. Okay, I’ll stop babbling now. 😉
