1. Her "maggot" friends - lately she has developed two imaginary friends (named Hailey and, um also Hailey). She overheard me telling someone that they were imaginary and started calling them her maggit friends. They have now graduated to "Magic" friends. She will ask me if they are with us in the car. I turn it around and ask her if they are. She tells me "Yes, I better buckow dem in. Buckow! Buckow! Shook! Shook!"
2. "I like Dinahsawrs. They are cute, just like mommies and green." She said this right after seeing the Sinclair dino, it's good to know that I rate right up there with Maggot dinosaurs.
3. "Can I pick your nose?" Every night I read her a couple stories and finish up with singing some favorite songs. One night, just after we'd belted out a much abbreviated version of Woopie Wye, she asked me, "Mommy, I pick your nose?" I told her of course not, that's really yucky and that I would rather have a kleenex. She then proceeded to inform me that "Daddy let's me pick him's nose." (Whah?!? Ewww!) When she made a snatch for mine, I realized she was talking about the game - I've Got Your Nose.
4. Hipanomanusses and Zreebahs, self-explanatory. English is hard.
In other news, the room has progressed so far as to know that we are definitely extending the wood floor into the family room and hallway, for sure. Probably.
Also, glazing the cabinets is cost-prohibitive, I mean I could half a kitchen's worth of brand spankin' new cabinets for what it would cost to glaze them. Neither one of those is happening unless I decide to risk it and glaze and lacquer them myself. Most likely we will keep the cabinets the way they are until they are eaten up with dry rot or something.
Painting? No numbers yet. I wish I had the skills to do the vaulted ceiling and cut it in perfectly, because I'd start Monday. I think we're going Oatmeal.
The jury is still out on the fireplace, but I have found a sofa that will accommodate Ty and not require an ottoman next to it. I'm not sure what the rest of us will sit on, but maybe Ellie has some Maggot chairs we can borrow.
Lab results Sunday afternoon, pray him some good results please: No more infection.
