Still Life

Cate loves to “decorate.” Once she saw the Pilgrim People had made their annual appearance, the little scene above has gradually added Mrs. Potato Head and three dancing princesses. I think Gresham helped with the princesses. I kind of love it and can’t really seem to move the newcomers back to their regular places.

On Monday I had orientation at the hospital. It was mostly okay. A long day and I think hospitals don’t know what to do with non-clinical people. Needle sticks? Really? I got home a bit later than I thought and the wonderful person we have watching the girls a couple of Mondays a month had a stricken look on her face. Shortly before I came home, they had been reading on the couch when Cate just started throwing up. All of over the rug, the sofa, and herself. Anyway, I got everything cleaned up and she continued to throw up until bedtime and then slept all night and was fine the next morning. I was in bed and asleep by 8:30.

My actual job starts on Monday. The girls started their new preschool yesterday. They were a few minor bumps but I think it will be good overall. A lot of change. We are all thankful to be home together this morning. It’s so sunshiney even! I think we are going to walk to the library for more books and maybe even coffee and a cookie…

Yesterday I finished a lot of projects around the house that I wanted to get done before I went back to work. I ordered the girls this personalized memory game from Pinhole Press for Christmas. I have ordered a few of their photo books in the past and am so impressed with the quality. Here are two pictures that made it into the game:
