Another chilly fall day in Weirdoland. Turned on furnace this a.m. because thermostat read a brisk 64F. Lovely. Seems Mr. Furnace doesn't want to wake up. Perhaps he's still in Florida since Mr. A/C came into the picture. Not sure. He better get working as he's only been here for a year and I'm not putting up with a slacker heater.
Still up at the crack of dawn. Still fretting over mother's arrival on Friday. To alleviate stressful atmosphere in household, I took self to mall and did a little retail therapy. It wasn't cheap. Should have stayed home and watched Dr. Phil. But alas, found some fabbo purchases that helped relieve twitch in right eye.
Got two pairs of boot-cut pants at le GAP, one chino and the other cords. Two new turtlnecks in camel and black to ward off the cool breezes and the cutest jean safari jacket. Also found longsleeved shirts for zee boys and the most darling jumper for the daughter, as today is Picture Day and for her a dress is mandatory.
Can't wait for Mummy to appear as I know she'll be looking to do some shopping and I can make her happy by throwing some of my stuff into her pile at the cash register.
The bathroom is almost finito. The mirror will be hung shortly and then I can start filling my new drawers and cupboards with my vast amount of SpongeBob band-aids (tm), shampoo bottles and endless lippies.
The daughter has a little friend over this morning to play Polly and make pipecleaner (or wired furry sticks as I've been reminded) crafts. They are just too cute (the girls, not the crafts) as they play Mom and Sister or Restaurant. Awwww.
Made mistake of arranging for afternoon of beautification today, as I also have a short re-interview at same time. Am going to have to be one of those absurd TalkingOnPhoneWhileGettingHairCoiffed kind of girls today. Hopefully stylist won't take it out on my hair.
Off to cloister more toys/shoes/knick-knacks away in spot mother won't notice. The husbando is whisking me off to lunch soon (while conveniently dragging me along on a meeting) then it's school time for Dress-Up Girl.
