it's been a cah-razy day. first, i had to throw together the taxes (i HATE this crap. we should totally just convert to a flat-tax kinda thing), hunt for an envelope and then a stamp, and by the time i was done i had about 25 minutes to jump in the shower and be at costco to meet my friend MommyBelle & co. for a stroll and some cheap lunch.
a zillion errands, a stop at the park, and running through the grocery store rounded out our day. and now i'm tired!
thank goodness i put dinner in the crock pot. i had another corned beef brisket i'd planned on making for the teen, but of course that's a non-issue now. so that'll be dinner tonight. yum!
while at costco, the bean discovered the deliciousness that is "fruit by the foot", courtesy of a free sample (or four). and when i took her in the car after playing at the park, i went to check my e-mail on my iPhone and she managed to climb her way into the trunk. it didn't take her long to find the fruit snack stash back there:
"mum!" she shouted, brandishing the snack. "mum!" and then she made the sign for "please?"
yes, the bean thinks she's british. i get "mum! mum!" all day long. it's comical. she also says "wuf!" when she sees a dog. and "buuuu-bo" at the sight of anything resembling bubbles. when she sees the hub: "daaaaaad!" i've got to get all this on video before she switches over from speaking greek to actual words.
i wonder if i should even bother to recap the weekend at this point. i guess i should - there are some fun easter pictures to share. there's always tomorrow.
