Shirley Temple’s in my Head!

I have that Shirley Temple song- “Cuppy Cake” something or other- stuck in my head.

And now, so do you. You’re very welcome.

In other news, Hula Girl is officially able to stand all by herself. *Clarification: she can pull herself up to standing, and then let go. She can’t actually manage the feat of standing up.* Along with being able to stand, she is attempting to take some steps- she hasn’t actually managed to go anywhere. She falls every single time. But she’s trying! Until she actually stays up for a few steps, I’m not counting it as “walking.” So there.

I am feeling rather snarky today, can you tell?

Tomorrow Hula Girl and I will be traveling to my parents’ house so we can escape our lonely house while Jonathan has extra training at work. I am torn between hoping she walks this weekend or not. I think it would be fun to have her walk for the first time at Grammy and Grampy’s house, but it would be lame for Jonathan to miss it.

Anyway, we’ve got to take another run to WalMart this afternoon to get some fruit and snacks for Hula Girl for our weekend. We’re also going to pick up some drain cleaner because our bathtub is not draining. After my shower today, I was standing in ankle-deep water. I thought that was a bit ridiculous. This is after our land lady has paid a terrible plumber to come out- twice.

It’s raining now. I feel snarky and gloomy now. I need ice cream.

How you do cheer up when you’re feeling blue?

    We’ve had bad drains, too… Once our landlord’s mother came in without notifying us and dumped baking soda and bleach down the shower drain (no effect). Then her son showed up with some absolutely foul high-strength cleaner and poured the whole container in, leaving noxious red fumes that drove us out of the apartment for hours.

      Yuck! I got some foamy stuff today, so I hope it does the trick. I have to pour hot water down the drain in a few minutes… let’s hope it drains!

    Ice cream always works for me – for celebrations, for snarkiness, for sleepiness, for comfort – the list goes on. As I said, Ice Cream Always Works.

      I wish I had actually gotten some. I really feel left out of the ICAW philosophy. Maybe Jonathan will go for me tonight!
