Minutes alone...

Below is picture that I scanned in from an old photo the other night. Sort of looks like I feel part of the I am falling apart.
For the first time in ages and ages, I have some time where not another soul is around except for the animals. It feels strange, but good. Roger has gone to visit and old friend of his in Terre Haute; he turned 80 on Monday.

Sarah is home today with Lorelei, and I didn't go down there but have stayed close to the phone. I spent the past two days down there, just to give Sarah a little break. Lorelei keeps us both laughing with the things she does. When it is just me there, Sarah will sit in the living room to nurse her....well, yesterday she would nurse a minute, then roll over and look at me and grin, all the time her leg is kicking. If her leg is kicking, she is a happy child.

She was just pure comedy to watch. Over the weekend, she would do something similar with her dad. She would look at him and do this fake cough to get his attention. I really have not been around very many babies...I had never changed a diaper till I had my own child so you have to keep that in mind when I say stuff about Lorelei. Things like I have never seen another baby jabber the way she kids jabbered, as well as the toddler that I babysat when our girls were toddlers.

It is Lorelei's actual way of jabbering that is so is from the back of her throat and almost sounds as if it is straining her voice. And she will do it as loud as she can....
I just talked to Sarah and will probably head over there in a bit. They are having a new fence put in....the guys came yesterday and took down the old one and put in the posts for the new one. They told Jeremy they had to let the posts/concrete sit over night. Yet they did not come back today. So, for right now, they have to take the dogs out on their leashes. Otto definitely will not mind enough to let loose, and she just doesn't feel like yelling at Keesha. Keesha will eventually listen, but she is so hard headed that if she really wants to do something, she will keep pushing for it.

I have a load of clothes in the washer and want to get them put over to the dryer, and another load started before I head that way. And have a couple other things to do here at home. So it does not look like I will get to do any blog visiting tonight.

On top of being over Sarah's a lot, our DVD player/recorder seems to have bitten the dust. I spent time last night trying to decide whether to invest in getting it fixed, or just buying a new one. If I didn't want one that records also, I would just go get a new one. But there are times when I want to watch two things that are on at same time, or else Roger wants one thing and me another. Or if there is something I am afraid I will forget, I will sit it to record.

But the more I read customer reviews of them, the more it seems like they all have not sure what is best to do!
