Hello Bloggies! Yes I have survived a week of hard core cleaning and packing. There is still much to be done at the apartment, but with Kevin helping me this weekend it should go a lot faster. 🙂
In other news, while I was finishing up at the apartment this evening Nora and I were sitting on the couch playing. She had my purse in her hand and she was pulling on the straps. I had my arm behind her to keep her from slipping off the edge, but some how when she pulled back on a strap she gained enough momentum to topple over my arm and onto the floor. It was only a fall from 10 inches, and since she flipped she landed mostly on her butt before rolling back and smacking her head but I have never been more panicked in my entire life. I don’t even think she was on the ground for more than a few seconds before I scooped her up since I was sitting right there, but it completely took my breath away. She fussed for a few moments out of surprise, but she wasn’t hurt. No bumps, knots, bruises or broken bones. THANK GOD. Oh it was terrifying.
I mean she’s getting to the age where she is incredibly mobile compared to her newborn days so accidents are inevitable, I know, but still. I’m just thankful that it was from the couch at the apartment and not our new couch at the house. If she had fallen from the new couch she would have fallen like sixteen inches onto hard floor. I feel really good about our choice of doctors though after this incident. When I called to make sure Nora didn’t need to be seen right away and was describing what happened the doctor gasped just as if it were her own kiddo that had fallen. Having a doctor who is also a mother just makes things easier, at least in my opinion.
Oh what else has happened this week? Yesterday there was a strange man in a silver Jetta that took a picture of my house for no apparent reason. I happened to be outside when it happened, and looked up at him asked what he was doing and instead of explaining himself he sped away. I ran after him screaming and yelling for a few houses then I immediately called the police. I mean sure, there are a number of legit reasons that some one could have been taking a picture of my house, but all of those reasons should have included a polite explanation from the photographer. I wasn’t mad that he was taking pictures until he refused to identify himself. I just wanted to know WHY he was taking a picture.
Today some one else pulled up to my neighbor’s house and snapped a picture. I was also outside for that one, and she saw me staring at her trying to figure out what she was doing. Instead of zipping away like a criminal she pulled up to my driveway and explained that she was with a mortgage company and they were doing a mortgage assessment. I told her that some one was taking pictures of my house yesterday and that we didn’t have a mortgage which is why I was suspicious of her. She said as far as she knew it wasn’t some one from her company, but I’m betting since she arrived at nearly the EXACT same time as the Jetta guy that he was from her company and just took a picture of the wrong address. Which kind of put me a little more at ease, but still. She was polite and I didn’t chase her down the street yelling and screaming. Jetta guy was shady and rude thus earning the Wrath of Kelli. Or “Halefire” lol.
Other than that the rest of the week has been pretty boring. lol. I wake up take care of the Little and do chores. lol. Anyway… it’s time to go rouse the Little from her nap to check her out. It’s going to be a long night checking on her every few hours, but I doubt I will be sleeping anyway. Until later Bloggies!
