|My midnight visitor|
Any way. This weekend has been good. We planted some vegetables in the garden beds I put down, and I am hopeful we will have some lovely fresh veggies this summer, if the squirrel will stop trying to eat the seeds. I send the dog out to chase it away but that doesn't last too long. Jackson loves gardens, but he doesn't really understand that once the seeds are in you don't continue to dig the soil up... hopefully we get a few plants to grow but we'll see how it goes. Even a few tomatoes will be nice.
Yesterday Jackson spent the day with my sister and her girls. She again commented that he talks more than her kids did. Yes I know, he's a chatterbox, constantly commenting on the world around him, talking to people in the store, on and on. I can tune it out sometimes but he normally wants, and expects, a response, and "Yeah" or "I see" just don't cut it for him.
I believe I am getting an acting promotion at work starting tomorrow, if everything works out for me it may lead to a permanent promotion. I told Jackson mommy is getting a promotion so when we were at Costco yesterday he wanted to buy one... Very sweet but how to you explain a promotion to a child who doesn't really even get that mommy goes to "work"? In any case, if I do get it as an acting, it is supposed to be for 3 months, that should be a bit of extra money I can put away towards baby 2 or a house. And if I get it more permanently I hope to continue living as though I am making what I do now, with all extra going to savings. The more money I have in the bank the better.
I did get myself a food processor today for my Mother's Dy gift, it was supposed to be a bike but that is proving a bit more difficult to figure out how to get home, it doesn't fit in my car. And I can't ride it home with Jackson without some difficulty. The processor was on sale, 50% off, and seems to be a good one, it is 12 cups but has a little 4 cup small bowl inside as well. And all the blades are stored in the unit, so it doesn't have a bunch of parts I need to worry about where to put. I do however need to make a place for it on my counter.
Any way. Mother's Day 2012 is pretty good so far, I am looking forward to many more, and wish all mom's, soon to be mom's and mom's in waiting a great and happy day.
