Refurbishing the trailer-hitch cover from Alex's truck. Apparently, it had become faded, hence the dismal record of the Razorbacks thus far (sports fanatics can make themselves believe anything). So I used my formidable artistic skills to brighten up Mr. Hog in time for the game, and lo and behold, Arkansas beat Louisiana-Monroe 44-15. I am still not a believer, but Alex is all, "I told you so."
And since Mommy was painting, Bella had to paint, and in the Lazy Mom School of Childcare, FORGET smocks. The best way to keep a toddler's clothes clean and paint-free is to remove them entirely. She is currently in her "orange phase", which we much prefer to her "mix all the colors toghether until everything is a murky brown" phase.
Right now we're settling in to watch the German film, "Lola Rennt" ("Run, Lola, Run"), which is one of my all-time fave-O-rites, so I am happy. Alex isn't even complaining about the subtitles--myself, I love subtitles, because you still know what people are saying when your 3-year-old is yell/singing at the top of her lungs.
