What is it about phone calls?

I hate making phone calls. I'm not talking about to friends, I can call BFF and talk for a good long time. But calling vendors? Or even to order a pizza? I've always hated it. Before getting married, (and before the days of online ordering) my roommate and I would rock paper scissors to see who had to call to order the pizza.

Point of the story? I still haven't called to get estimates on fixing our bathroom shower tile. That is number one on my list for the week. *sigh*

I'm excited to have a car back after being without for 3 days last week, so we're celebrating by meeting a friend for lunch today, hopefully meeting with the winner of last week's giveaway to give her the bag, and tonight, N and I are touring the hospital where Bean will be born.

I have a small list this week as far as to-do's go.
1. Get the estimates set-up
2. Work on C's baby book. I'm a terrible mother and I haven't filled anything out since he was a week old. Thank goodness for emails and Facebook keeping track of the stats for me.
3. Print Bean's baby book

I made the kid's baby books myself, I couldn't find a pre-made one I liked, and the ones I could find on Etsy were ridiculously expensive for something I thought I could make pretty well myself just using a cool font and Word. In the end, I didn't even have to do the bulk of the work as a friend made one I liked and she was kind enough to share the template so I could make my own. I changed the fonts and made different pages, but in the end, I love C's baby book, it's classy and because I print it at home, I can change it at anytime.

Last week I printed all the pictures and gathered all the mementos so that this week with some naptime and some double sided tape, I can crank out C's baby book so it's done in time for his birthday party.

What are you up to this week? It's kind of ridiculous how excited I am about lunch with my friend this afternoon.

  1. I'm cleaning my house. I have company comping for lunch on Thursday, so I better get things cleaned up and de-furred enough to not be disgusting. :cross fingers:
