1. The squeaky glider in Emmy’s room. She never falls asleep if I actually rock her; it’s way too squeaky. But…I rock furiously if I’m annoyed with Ed and he’s still in bed, sleeping…or at least trying to sleep. On reflection, this really isn’t making the best of the situation, is it? (I’m sorry, Ed!)
2. Emmy’s cold. She insisted on being held while I was baking corn bread. Then she sneezed right into the baking powder. I figure the germs would just bake to death.
3. Long freight trains. They make me late, they’re slow, and it means I have to listen to the Little People CD even longer. But at least the girls love watching the train so they’re not screaming or crying or whining.
4. The water pipe that goes up to our master bath began to leak the morning of Lily’s birthday party. Everyone was kicking the bucket, literally. To fix it, the plumber had to cut several holes in our kitchen wall. But I got to have the wallpaper removed and a new paint job in the kitchen that insurance paid for…Hurray!
