1. MY CAR IS FIXED!!! The repair guys finished it yesterday, and I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am to have it back.
Isn’t it insanely shiny? I don’t know what those guys did to it, but it looks fantastic. I was so happy to have it back, I almost jumped on the hood and humped it like I was in a Whitesnake video. Dave said that would leave a bigger dent than the one the movers caused, so clearly I will never be speaking to him ever again.
2. Cate’s asthma is way better. She hasn’t needed her albuterol in over 24 hours, so that’s what we call recovered around here.
3. We went to our very first neighborhood gathering today: little Morgan across the street turned 1 year old, so her parents threw a party and all of the neighborhood kids were there. It was kind of insane, there were kids (mostly older, our neighborhood seems to have a lot of kids in the 5-10 year-old range) running around everywhere. Cate was a little clingy at first with all of the people around, but she soon relaxed and ran around and had a great time. She even let a couple of the other moms (and one teenage girl) pick her up, which is pretty amazing given how mommy-centric she is right now. Also, I got to meet a ton of our neighbors who I hadn’t met yet, and all of them seemed really super nice, so that was great.
And the absolute best part? After getting completely overstimulated by the kids and all the activity, baby girl crashed almost as soon as I got her home. Naptime has never been as easy as it was today. Yay! Can’t wait for e-baby’s birthday party tomorrow so we can wear her out all over again!
