So things are a lot better around here now. Scott and I are going to see Larry the Cable Guy tonight. Scott had flowers delivered to the house. Three dozen miniature roses. They’re gorgeous. One point for him (or about 3 dozen points). He has been trying so hard lately. Notes left for me in the morning. Surprise dates, presents, the flowers. I love him more just for making the effort.
I do still talk to the guy at work. Almost daily. The subjects of our conversations have changed quite a bit though. Recently we’ve been discussing God and whether he creates us inherently good or bad. It’s brought up other things and honestly, I’ve learned a ton just by trying to respond. I’ve thought through things I have never thought through or haven’t probably since college. It’s so weird with him and I. Sometimes it seems like we are almost the same person, just maybe different personalities. We just seem to approach things with the same thought process even if the opinions are different. Wednesday night he, I don’t know, disappointed me. We were doing an implementation for work and he logged in to the computer from the bar he had gone to after work. He went off on tangents and kept talking like so fast and about things I didn’t ask him about and things you just don’t say like that. Now I know why I can’t be around people when they are drinking. I honestly didn’t feel like I was talking to the same person. It really put a different perspective on a lot of things. Anyway, enough about him!
Lexi has really started to try to say stuff. She’s not too good at it but you can tell she is trying. Last night she tried to say two. She was pretty close on that one actually. Apparently she can do animal sounds. The kitty cat is the cutest. She says mow, mow. She does lion, dog, and kitty cat. She is a ham. So funny when she sticks her tongue out when she is really being funny or silly. She has a fit when people come over. Starts running in place, sticking her tongue out, dancing, trying to do somersaults.
Emma is getting more mature all the time. I mean, as much as a 3 year old can be. We still struggle with whining quite a bit and a little bit of talking back to us. She is worse when she is with MIL. I don’t think because of MIL but because of her cousin that she is always with if she spends time with her. She is quite a handful.
We redid our foyer and hallway. Didn’t know people redid those right? Well, our foyer is sort part of our living room. I added a console table and mirror after painting the foyer walls a very deep brown. I love it. I just want to sit in the foyer now.
So today I’m just looking forward to tonight. I really hope it is good.
