I’ve been looking at cat trees recently. I was going to buy one for Mercia and almost did, but now I’ve seen lots of websites about how to build your own for under $50. It is tempting, as most cat trees/condos go for around $100- and I don’t not have that kind of money! I also want another cat, I’ve bought it up to Nick and he seems keen too. But I really think that we should wait until Abby is older. Then I guess it could be her kitty- her first pet. Better than a goldfish (which is what I got)

Abby is less cranky now. I was talking to an older mom friend of mine who’s kids are having their own babies soon and she was giving me some feeding advice. She told me to give Abby cereal before she goes to bed as it stays in their tummies longer and they sleep better. So I am trying it tonight. So far, so good. She was falling asleep as I was reading ‘Daddy Hugs 1,2,3’ to her. It’s a really cute book. I think Aunty Jess is going to get ‘Goodnight Moon’ for her sometime soon. I want to get Abby ‘The Very Hungry Caterpiller’- as it’s was a favourite book of mine when I was kid. I just wish that I still had my ‘Little Story Teller’ books and cassette tapes from when I was a kid. I think I’ll have a look to see if anyone has any on eBay. I wish my parents had never given them away now ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I was looking through Abby’s toys earlier and she really doesn’t have a whole lot. She has a playmat/gym combination, a soft dollie, a few rattles and a set of Baby Einstein blocks. Oh and the mirror toy too. I guess she really can’t use much else at the moment. Bah! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Has anyone any idea how hard it is to use a computer when you’re tipsy? I have to keep using the delete key all the time! Gah!

Me and Nick went out tonight while Nick’s sister babysat. We went to this one bar and they had the old-style tabletop Pac Man video game. It was so much fun. We sat there drinking PBR and having Pac Man tournaments! It rocked! ๐Ÿ˜€

I never did get around to doing any cleaning. Gah. I looked after Abby all day, and also had to run to Pick N Save for some more formula, as when the two of us got up at 10am, there was nothing. So I had to feed her some rice cereal mixed up with some juice, and she still screamed while at the store. Everyone kept looking at me…but what the heck was I supposed to do? Huh?

Anyway, I am tired. Off to bed said Zebedee ๐Ÿ˜€

I spoke to Mikey tonight. He was so cute, but really outgoing. Not shy at all. I guess that kinda surprised me ๐Ÿ™‚ I am also not too sure whether Rhonda is talking to me after the she-bang the other night. I think she. I think she forgave me. I guess there’s a lesson to be learned here- either I keep my mouth shut at all times or people should always be watching for the fallout! I maybe sweet and good-natured for the most part, but when something upsets me, believe me- you’ll know about it!

Nick has been hanging out more with Greg again. I can never remember why it they know each other, but they talk about grade point averages all the time- I’m thinking high school buddies ๐Ÿ™‚ Christina recently lent us a baby gym for Abby. It is the coolest. I also know that it’s a fairly pricey one too, so we kinda lucked out ๐Ÿ˜€ Jackie gave us Colton’s old ,Boppy pillow too, as he doesn’t use it anymore. And they’re pricey too. I guess I’ve been blessed recently. The Boppy pillow is great, I can put Abby on it when I am feeding her, she can lie on it when she on her tummy, and I also use it to prop myself up in bed when I am reading my Harry Potter books, lol- yes I am aware that it’s not meant to be used for that ๐Ÿ˜€ I need to make a package up for Sarah (Rhonda’s daughter)- she’s having a little boy. I said I’d pass on a few pieces- it’s the least I can do. I am also sending her a Carrie CD with all of her songs up-to date on it. I think I am just going to go out and buy a jiffy bag and put it all in, stick some stamps on it and tally ho! (LOL)

Anyhoo, best go. I have more HP to read. I finished Book 6 and now I’m reading 4 and 5 again ๐Ÿ˜€
