Still no pictures... sorry guys!
I am at my parent's house while Nick works on the bathroom at our house in the mountains. I feel like I am missing most of myself while he is there and I have retreated to knitting and watching Amelie to keep myself entertained. I was falling in love with our home... and had just re-introduced myself to my old dishes and I just got a text that Nick could hear our creek. We have our own Creek!!! I always wanted a creek.
Speaking of Amelie, I love that movie. I wish it didn't have the insanely risqué parts or it would be one of my favorites. I had forgotten how whimsical and imaginative and just plain beautiful it is. But I warn you... there are very, very bad scenes. Definitely don't watch it with someone you are dating like Nick and I did... very embarrassing. That is probably why I couldn't remember how much I liked it. Silly French people. (I can say this as I am part French Canadian).
How would you spend a savings bond worth around $100 from your grandparents? I have one of these and I am trying to come up with something meaningful to give to my kids as like a gift from them. Both of my grandparents were 100% Czech so I originally thought something from the Czech Republic would be very fitting. But something for kids too. I found some goofy toys but nothing that I feel would be truly loved and played with and then passed on to my grandchildren. So I was thinking of buying a wooden farm play set by Plan Toys to represent my family of Czech farmers that came to and live here in the US. But for all the items it would be well over $100!! Though it would probably last FOREVER. Their products are awesome. My other idea was to buy a Plan doll house. As a kid I LOVED doll houses... and assume every girl did and it was something I always wished for. At the age of 12 I finally got a nice rickety wooden doll house from a garage sale. But who knows if my kids would really want one? I thought it would be neat to buy furniture for at holidays until it is completely full... a true heirloom to love. Doll houses never go out of style. Any other cool ideas would be nice. :)
I put mayonnaise in my hair to see if it will really make it shiny and smoother. My hair has been so dry! It seems not to have recovered from nursing still... and it has been like 5 months! I better go shower and get rid of the odor. I hate mayonaise. It better work.
