Random Optimus

I haven't posted for a week. Sorry. I've been mostly MIA on the interwebz in general. Still struggling with health stuff and if you don't have your health, you haven't got much else, so I've been away trying to get better.

I'll try to be better this week.

On a different note, FINALLY we're finishing up the home renovation project we started, oh, last Labor Day. So, Labor Day to Easter. It finally ended up being forced because I caved and ordered our new washer and dryer and now (Yippee!) they are being delivered the end of this week and it was make or break time. I'll post some pics of the finished work soon as we're up and running. And for those of you who forgot, this would be the project that all began because of the previous owner's penchant for Fry Sauce colored walls. (That's a ketchup/mayo mix in case you're not from Utah.)

I have been reading, though, so keep an eye out for yet more Recent Reads posts later this week.

And oh, I didn't put up a new quote for this week because, well, I truly wanted to reiterate the last one.

Okay, I promise to be more . . . present this week. That's about all I can do. Not sure I can guarantee any entertainment or anything.

So I leave you with this conversation I had with our 22 month old "Mini Kidlet"
(I have a Transformers poster hanging on my office wall, remnants of when office was the playroom, plus I really like Transformers so I haven't bothered to take it down yet.)

Mini Kidlet enters - looks at poster - waves. "Hi Optimus."
Me: "What did you say?"
MK: "Hi Optimus."
Me: "Who?"
MK: Points at poster. "Prime."
Ahh, my not-yet-2-year-old, clarifying who Optimus is.

Husband has trained her well.

Have a good day everyone!

Breaks are needed, even if they aren't intended! Nice to have you back :D

Hope you feel better soon. Love the conversation. That's awesome. I love when little kids randomly learn some really long or difficult word.

Welcome back! At least I didn't miss anything while I was unplugged last week. :)

fry sauce colored walls? wow, I guess you don't have to worry about what the house would look like after a food fight ;) seriously though, kudos on finishing that project. home improvement can be a challenge to fit into everything else.

happy spring break!

I can understand about the whole health thing. We went through that a while back around here. I hope you feel better soon.

So glad your kidlet is getting the proper training. =]

I hope you're feeling better soon. I'm sorry you still feel yucky. *hugs*
