Great Grandma

Claire enjoyed visiting with her great grandma from Oklahoma this weekend. We drove up to Lompoc and Buelton had a nice visit with various family members.
I slept 5 hours straight on Saturday night...boy did that feel good. I woke up and pumped at 2:00 but slept the rest of the night while Nanna Pennie and Martin had their adventures with Claire downstairs.

On Sunday we drove Grandma down to LA and took her to Union Station where whe caught the train to go back home. We were glad we got to stop by our house and have lunch before she had to leave.

Speaking of our house...It is in a state of chaos because of the various projects we have going on. Mark took out a section of cabinets to install our dishwasher and the contents of these cabinets and the old cabinets are sitting in the dining room. Yesterday evening we purchased some replacement cabinets. it will be nice to get the Kitchen organized and hopefully a bit more user friendly.

Every day I'm home I struggle with time management. I think to myself, I need to have lunch but then I start puttering, I discover chicken in the fridge that needs to be cooked today so I make a marinade for it then I am torn between throwing the clothes in the dryer or feeding the cats.(I decide to do neither: I get involved unloading the dishwasher and rinsing dirty dishes..by this time I'm realy hungry and finally throw a noodle salad together and gobble it down. Claire has fallen asleep and I decide to try and nap...can't fall asleep so I get up and start the dryer...still haven't fed the cats... that's next. I used a seam ripper to take some defunct velcro off a bib soIi can replace it with some new iron-on velcro later. Now I want to catch up on reading blogs. (Last night I didn't sleep more than an hour at a time. I think Claire napped too much during the day so she kept waking up every hour or so during the night.)

I am so glad great grandma got to see Claire. I'll bet she was thrilled. I wish I was there to help you get your kitchen back together. Good luck on your project. Love,
