Shiny happy people

My sink is still shiny. Amazing. Other stuff isn't necessarily always clean, but the bed is made, the sink is shiny, and the bathroom has been wiped down. Every day. I feel somewhat sane again.

Oh, and I did some menu planning, which means that making dinner no longer requires any brain power at all. Just the way I like it. Tonight we had turkey soup (using turkey carcasses from last Friday) and schnitzel sandwiches on homemade foccacia. The whole thing probably took about an hour of prep time, and that's an over-estimate.

We have new laundry hampers, which I absolutely adore and were totally worth what I paid for them at Ceramic Silo Children. They make doing a daily load of laundry almost enjoyable. Hey, anything to get the job done... right?

Miss Kali is sitting up like a champ. She doesn't even fall over anymore... so now we can sit her in her ball pit and she'll amuse herself for 20-30 minutes. It's rather amazing, really, how if she drops the ball she goes looking for that exact one, even there are a ton of identical ones all around... and she finds the one she's looking for. Hmm, maybe she just touches it to confirm the presence of drool.

And Mr. December and I have set a bedtime for ourselves. It may not seem early to you folks, but we're always in bed with the lights out before midnight, sometimes substantially earlier. We're happy campers.

Lest you think everything is just perfect over here, allow me to remind you that I'm still fat, my brother's wedding is coming up, and I'm dreading the fitting for my bridesmaid dress.

She has a ball pit? Wow! I didn't know there was such a thing for household use. I thought it was just for amusement parks. Seems to me there was a Simpsons episode about Maggie and a ball pit. :) I loved those things at the parks when I was a kid. It was great to try to lie down under all the balls. You'd never drown or anything! :)
