Kayla's is off school due to an Act 80 Day, so I brought her to work with me. We stopped at McD's and picked up breakfast. She has been well behaved, for the most part. The boss is in Cancun, so I hope to get caught up on my filing this week. What a weekend! (the following is an excerpt from my Days & Nights Book):
Saturday, February 18, 2006 A.M.: What a day. Knew something was wrong with the furnace, but was hoping it would kick on. Bitter wind today. Kayla and I went to Michael’s for her Art Class; she bought a Keebler candy making kit; then we stopped at Barnes & Nobles; next was Chick Filet for lunch. Her friend Karolina was there and they played for an hour. So good for Kayla. Then we went to Giant Eagle - put her in the nest to play. I only needed to pick up a few things and we decided on Manicotti and Garlic Bread for dinner. Saturday, February 18, 2006 P.M.: Home - heat not on at all. Called Stahl Plumbing & Heating, they can’t come until tomorrow. UGH! Main priority was keeping the water pipes from bursting. Kayla made yummy candy and we ate a good dinner. Amanda went out to Bruce’s. Kayla and cleaned up half the cellar; Mom came in and brought a little heater. Kay and I spent most of the night doing laundry to keep the dryer heating up the cellar; left the oven and burners on all evening and stayed warmed in our living room, snuggling and watching t.v. On top of it all, it was the coldest day/evening of the year!
This is Kayla fingerpainting. One of her favorite pasttimes is painting her body. When she was much younger than this, she painted her body with chocolate pudding because she wanted to be brown.
