I know I have not updated for a while. My hours for babysitting are varied, and sometimes long. I work 12 hours a day sometimes, but I'm off today so I thought I'd update my blog. Gavin is as adorable as ever, and he is even more spoiled than before I got him. I guess that's part of my job description: spoil babies daily.
Three notable things that have happened since my last entry are:
Thursday morning Bob, our cat, came in the house and started eating a huge mouse in our living room floor. Mom and everyone else were all screaming. I picked up Bob and put him outside and then I had the great pleasure of picking up the bloody decapitated mouse and throwing it out into the front yard. Note the sarcasm; I nearly threw up.
On Saturday I went to Jackson for Toastmaster Officer training. Toastmasters is a Communication and Leadership group that I am in. I was elected as the Vice President of Public Relations for Fall of 2005. The training went well; I was so relieved because I've been to officer training before (for a different office) and it was boring and uninformative.
I saw Daniel while I was in Jackson and we had a brief visit. He showed me some gorgeous pictures of the tornados and storms he saw on his storm chasing trip.
Last of all my little sister Lydia celebrated her 9th birthday yesterday. We had a princess party for her and everyone dressed up like princesses. We had princess doll cakes, vanilla birthday icecream, and rasberry fruit punch. Gavin was the only prince at the party because our little brother Jesse left. He spent some time with a friend. Gavin slept through most of the party (thankfully!).
