My eyes are doing better today. I really can't tell I have blepharitis except for all the pus that was in my eyes yesterday morning. (I hope I didn't just gross you out.) My eyes don't itch or water (except from the allergies) or hurt. I hate wearing my glasses, though.
We went to my parents' house after nap time yesterday, and we had a fun time visiting with my mom while Sarah Beth played on the slides and Daniel played in the dirt. Meanwhile, her washing machine was doing what it does best with my load of clothes. Of course, here at home, I have a mountain of laundry that need to be done. As soon as my new washer gets here, it will have to show me how well it can wash clothes. We bought one of the new front loading ones, and I am very upset that I have to buy special detergent for it. It is so much more expensive. And I have about five bottle of detergent I cannot use anymore. Anyone want it?
Instead of cleaning bathrooms yesterday, I baked. While Daniel was upstairs in his room during his morning quiet time, I baked strawberry bread and strawberry muffins. I doubled both recipes so I have some stashed away in freezer. Yummy!! Today, I will clean bathrooms.
Daniel is such a sweet boy, but he can be a handful which I guess is true about most boys. When he is awake, you'd better have him in your line of sight or he will get into something that he shouldn't. It wears me out! My mom suggested that I put him in his room for a little while everyday to give me some time to get a few things done. I started last week, and it works great! I baby proofed his room which wasn't hard since he only has a crib and dresser in it. There are lots of toys in Daniel's room, and I open the blinds for him because he loves to look out the window. Then I put up the baby gate and leave. He cries, and it's so very sad, and I always rethink my decision. But I set my will and keep walking. He usually stops before I get to the stairs. Then he plays happily until I go to get him, about thirty minutes later. It's very nice. I am amazed at how much I can accomplish in half an hour without having to chase Daniel around. How do you get things done with little ones underfoot?
