it's almost 5:00 p.m. erev shabbat and i haven't done any cooking. i think i will make my way to my sister's for dinner. i've had the baby all day with me and only accomplished washing the floors. i tried a new detergent that supposedly, was kiwi scented. it had a nice fresh smell.
i've beem trying to get the downstairs ready for summer rentals. i hung up curtains everywhere, and started wallpering the laundry room with some material i found in the closet. i thumbtacked my way through 3 plaster board walls. i'm trying to make the laundry room into a lounge area. i still need to paint the walls white and rearrange the beds and couches. i also spent a bunch of money that i really shouldn't have at this point in time. it will be good, right?
i was supposed to have a small group of 13 teenage haredi girls for shabbat but they cancelled at the last minute. i hadn't really cleaned the place yet so it was really not such of an ordeal. i don't know why i am having such a hard time with the holiday renting. someone was giving away some bedframes and furniture and i tried to arrange a pickup. after a very frustrating day, it was a no go. chalk it up to bad energy.
i wanted to do some baking but sahar needed my attention more. he was very good but he was not tired today, so i had him all morning without his taking a nap. he passed out on the couch at 2:00 p.m. but cloey the pincher dog woke him up. she actually, pulled off his blanket and scratched on his arms to get him up. i was just finishing up my sponger when i saw him sitting up on the couch.
he stood up on the couch today without using hands. he seems like he's getting ready to walk. he wanted to nurse so he simply, yanked up my shirt and tried to grab me. boy was he ever, barking up the wrong tree! i really have to get going here so i'll sign off and wish all my jewish readers, a good shabbat. to be continued..........
