Boxed in, Still Adolescent, Wigging Out, a Tulip and Baby Proofing
Well I think I underestimated how much Eric and I have made this town our home in the year that we have lived here. We have had so many people come out of the woodwork and offer to help us with our move. I can't believe it. Helping with a move is akin to volunteering to go as proxy to the dentist for someone else. Crazy kindness I tell you.
We are still buried beneath boxes and boxes both full and empty. Last night Eric eyed a box all through dinner and then before I knew it he had hopped in. Yes, my husband who is pushing 30 (don't remind him) was itching to hop into the box. Then he commented how it was sort of like an airplane. Oh how I love that kooky guy. Cordelia is going to have such fun with her father.
In case you were wondering my voice does still sounds bizarre. It's a guessing game whether the sounds that come out of my mouth will be low or high. So, I hope that someday I will have my voice back and the hearing in my right ear too.
In case you are wondering why I am showing you yet another picture of boxes let me tell you. I have been in this house nonstop. I think I have left the house for a total of about 30 minutes in the past two days, only leaving to take Bumblebee on short walks as it has been snowy and cold. So I am wigging out on the boxes, they've become the constant in my life.
Maybe we all need to refresh our eyes...so here you go.
Finally we are going to get serious about baby proofing our new digs. I am not talking about putting bumpers on everything and making Cordelia wear a helmet, but just the true dangers like outlets and mini blind cords. Any special baby proofing advice that you care to share?
