Another day in Paradise

   Another day in Paradise? Yeah, if paradise is 100+ degree temperatures, enough humidity to make your ears sweat and not a beach in sight. Doesn't sound like much of a paradise to me. I feel so sorry for my husband on hot days like these. He works in a factory that doesn't have air conditioning. Doesn't seem legal! Last week when it got so hot he said 6 people passed out from the heat, and 2 of them were supervisors! He says the heat doesn't really bother him any more after almost 11 years of working there, but I don't see how it couldn't. Sounds absolutely, positively miserable to me.

   Speaking of Brandon, he had quite a bad day yesterday. Without going into specifics, he got into an accident at work and now has a different job (within the same company). He's only had this particular job at work for about 6 months, but he says he's okay with it, as long as everybody involved (including him) is okay and he still has his job. It was scary to see him so upset and rattled over what happened. I'm just glad it turned out alright.

   I haven't done much scrapping the last couple of days. I'm still trying to get all my scrapbooking kits filed the way I want and organized so I can get what I need without too much hassle. It's harder than one would think! I'm also going to subscribe to an online backup, because the thought of losing all my pictures and scrapbook stuff makes me sick. Even though I have a new computer, @&%^ happens. If I got a virus or something and lost all my stuff, I would be inconsolable. I'm going with Backblaze, which is $5 a month or $50 if you buy a whole year. Seems like nothing for the peace-of-mind it will give me.

   Well, big news around our house is that Maylee is going potty in her potty chair!! She's been doing it pretty consistently for about 2 days now, and a couple of days before that were pretty good as well. She hasn't worn a diaper except for nap and night-night time for two days! I am ecstatic! I'm ready to be diaper-free and Maylee's ready to be a big girl, so all involved are HAPPY! Here's a picture of her getting her treat (M&Ms) after going potty.
I can't wait to scrapbook this picture! I tried to take this picture about 10 times, and finally got the shot I wanted. Too funny & cute! I'll spare you the pictures of the actual pee in the potty. Yes, I took a picture of the pee. I'm a proud Mommy! Can you blame me? And check out that curl! Her hair is so curly. I wonder if it'll stay that way? She's still got her fine baby-like hair, so I tend to think she won't have curly hair, but Brandon thinks it'll stay curly. I kinda hope she does.

  Just one more quick thing...I got one more follower on my blog. And it's not just any follower, it's a scrapbook designer!! I know my blog's way boring for someone like her, but it's nice that she followed me! And I have another person who commented that they read my blog, but I didn't recognize the commenter's name so I have a little mystery on my hands. I probably know them, but...So if you're that person, give me a shout-out so I know who you are!  And if you're new, welcome!!! I love making new friends!

  1. Yay on the new follower!!

    I can see where the scrap stuff would be hard to organize!! The online backup seems like a good idea at a fair price.

    Yay with Maylee and the potty!! Now please come and potty train my child.lol.
