Quote of the Day
Sunday, September 11, 2005
I've had a great, but busy weekend, and the last hour and a half are going to be a flurry of activity. Since T went to the football game on Saturday, I spent most of the day alone with ST and we had so much fun! We slept in, went shopping, had a treat together at the mall (ST's very first Icee), made lunch together, tried to take a nap together but ended up giggling too much and skipping the nap, and then waited for his best friend (M) to come over, as I was babysitting. M arrived at around 3:30pm and she and ST were hilarious as they played together. They are truly two peas in a pod, and listening to their toddler conversations is quite a treat.

ST: M, where's your Mom?

M: She's at a party with Dad.

ST: Did they drive the red Honda? (We drive the exact same Honda as M's parents. Same model, color, year... and only about 5,000 miles different on mileage.)

M: Uh-huh.

ST: Will they eat at the party? (Leave it to ST to ask about food! His favorite subject.)

M: Uh-huh. They'll eat M&Ms and cake.

ST: Do they get presents?

M: Maybe. Maybe a doll. Or some candy! (M is obsessed with M&Ms and colored candy in general)

ST: I like candy! Mom, can we have some candy? (Again with the food!)

Quite amusing, especially considering the fact that M's parents went to a social function for work, and I highly doubt that M&Ms were involved.

Today has been considerably less entertaining. I took ST to Mass with me (always an adventure, but worth it when ST passes a statue of Jesus on the way back from Communion and says, "Hey, Jesus!" and pats the statue's foot!), and when I got home I went straight to work. I had some revisions to do on Chapter Three that I'm still working on, had to cut some now-irrelevant stuff from Chapter One, wrote a cover letter, and finished my teaching evaluation spreadsheet. I'll finish Chapter Three tonight, and hopefully polish off Chapter One as well. The revisions are relatively minor, but they're taking me a long time.

Best get back to work -- lots to do tomorrow!

    revising is much harder work than initial writing, I think. good luck with it!
