why are kids so particular? they need a certain cup, or a certain bath towel. if their cheese is broken then it's the end of the world. if something isn't working then andrew thinks it needs batteries. even if it doesn't use batteries at all. i guess i was like that, too, when i was a kid. i just don't know why things like that mattered.
okay, now that that is out of the way...
yesterday we went to my niece molly's blessing. she's about ten weeks old. she was blessed in her ward in Reno. for those of you who don't know what i'm talking about, a baby blessing is kinda like a christening. anyway, afterwards we all went to an aunt's house in Sparks. she has a big house with a big back yard. yesterday was cold and windy, but people kept telling me to take the kids outside to play. i was fending off their verbal "suggestions" pretty good, until derek told me to take them out. i'm wearing a gauze dress, sandals, don't have a coat, and don't like being outside anyway. while we were out there a bunch of other kids came out to play, too. no other adults came out. finally derek and another aunt come out. she puts a blanket on me and says that she's cold just looking at me. i just wanted to yell at her. she was one of the ones who was really pushing me to take the kids outside. just after this andrew hits his head on something and starts to bleed. derek took him inside and kept him there. luckily, he didn't need stitches. last time we were at this house emmy got hurt in the back yard. i just don't think that it's a safe yard for little kids. anyway, i finally got emmy inside and kept her there. this was after i'd been hit by three rain drops. it hadn't quite started raining. it actually took a few hours before it started raining, but i didn't want to be out there when it did. basically, i just had a bad attitude until i was inside for a while. i wouldn't mind if i never went there again. i guess i still have a bad attitude about it all.
p.s. i got my glasses on friday.
