::I bought a package of these fusible beads for Eva to try. They were a huge hit. She made several dogs, cats, and turtles and invited some friends over to create with her. She decided to spend some of her Christmas money to buy another set: princesses.
I was tired of having the loose container of beads around, so I gave her a little divided plastic container and we sorted them by color. She was as pleased with the sorting as I. I love it when she wants to do something with me other than play imagination games!!
Mental picture: when we came back from the craft store, I so wished I had had my camera with me. She had a cute outfit on and her hair done in braids. She was wearing her khaki coat. She was holding a red balloon she got at the store in one hand, and her package in the other. She looked so pleased and grown-up. Sigh.
::I had a dream that we bought a new house. It was a pretty big house (even though we don't want a really big house). We went to move in, and discovered that the previous owners had decided to leave all their stuff there and start fresh. Also that it was nienie's house! I was wandering from room to room, poring over all of the cute things, thinking maybe I wouldn't bother moving mine in. And then, suddenly, we had to leave for a fancy party. I put on one of Stephanie's darling pairs of shoes and they actually fit! And I felt pretty. Weird.
::I also had a dream that Jill and her family were offering to pay us to come over and get rid of a mouse in their house. What the? I suggested they buy some blocks of mouse poison! (**When I got home from being out with Jill today, I was informed that there was a mouse sighting at our house today. Not again...)
::Yesterday I went for my last session of physical therapy! Hooray! I baked cookies to take to all of the people who have helped me. Then someone mentioned that I would have to return next week for a final visit with the doctor. Noooooooo! I brought cookies! It was supposed to be the last day! I felt a little deflated. But at least I'm done with the PT.
::Next week I will be taking Max to get his driver's permit. Still trying to wrap my mind around that.
