THIS WEEK HAS BEEN A LITTLE OFF, AND I'M WORN OUT. LUKE HAS BEEN TOO SICK TO GO TO SCHOOL, BUT NOT SICK ENOUGH TO SLEEP AND RELAX. EVE IS CRAWLING ALL OVER THE PLACE, AND PRACTICING PULLING HERSELF UP ON HER KNEES EVERYWHERE! THIS RESULTED IN A FEW SCRAPES AND SCRATCHES, ONE ON HER LITTLE NOSE FROM A BIT OF A RUG BURN. THIS GIRL HARDLY EVER CRIES, SO WHEN SHE DOES IT COMPLETELY BREAKS MY HEART. I'VE BEEN TRYING MY BEST TO KEEP EVERYONE HAPPY. READ : COOKIE BRIBES.


MY LITTLE LIVE TREE IS STILL HANGING OUT IN THE LIVING ROOM. I SHOULD PROBABLY WRAP IT UP AND PUT IT OUTSIDE. OR . . . WELCOME IT INTO THE FAMILY AND ACCEPT IT AS A PERMANENT MEMBER. WHATEVS.
