Week 20

May 15, 2011 - Today I took Maggie out to the backyard to go to the bathroom, and while I was waiting I saw her eating something. I thought it was poop (see also: dogs are gross), so I yelled at her, and she dropped it and looked at me. All of the sudden two baby bunnies ran in different directions, and I realized that she wasn't trying to eat poop; she was trying to eat baby bunnies. Poor little things. This one stayed there frozen for so long that I thought she had killed it, but when we went out to check later it had finally moved. I thought they were super-cute. And yes, I did bring carrots out for the bunnies.

May 16, 2011 - This morning I got up and put a pot roast in the crock pot covered in crushed tomatoes and taco seasoning for pot roast tacos. It cooked on low for 10 hours, and when I got home our house smelled AMAZING. Unfortunately, then I had to wait until Jack get home to be able to eat it. Hazard of our opposite schedule, I guess! It ended up being a really good (easy!) meal though, when we finally got to eat it!

May 17, 2011 - I like having a pillow behind me at work, but I like it in the middle and every time I move, it slips down. Bummer pants. So today I engineered this little pillow-holder for my chair - I just took a long scarf/table runner thing that Eric brought back from Ethiopia and wrapped it around my pillow and chair and tied it in the back. No more moving pillow!

May 18, 2011 - I had to document this, because my guest bathroom (and the rest of my house) is actually clean. I mean, sure, I had to panic-clean because Jack's uncle is coming into town tomorrow, but it totally counts.

May 19, 2011 - Jack's uncle Jack and Chrissy came into town tonight just to see us, and they even took us out to dinner to Ricks (my FAVORITE restaurant!). We're so completely spoiled. And we had such a great time with them!!

May 20, 2011 - Today, I discovered Pinterest. Ut oh. It's like crack for crafters. And of course, I found about 3,000 projects that I MUST START RIGHT NOW! When Jack got home, I was sneaking into the garage to try to cut wood for a wall hanging. He was not a fan of that idea (since there was a high probability I would cut off an appendage), so he went ahead and cut the wood for me.

May 21, 2011 - It's done! I stained the wood, attached the boards together, then cut out the letters with my Silhouette machine and stuck them to the whole thing! I really like the way it turned out. The quote is from one of our favorite songs from one of our favorite bands, "Rhythm of Love" by The Plain White T's.
