New phone

Here are some things that have been happening:
  • D asks: "For my next swim class, will the water be deeper?"
  • My new phone has arrived and it's so pretty! I'm hoping to enjoy it a lot during our West Coast travel, although I know that I won't have reception everywhere.
  • C is working hard on our Wii to turn her piggy bank gold. It's interesting how motivating these token prizes are which give no tangible benefit. She was doing some yoga, which is unusual for her.
  • C asked: "Why do villains in stories have henchman problems?" I had mentioned this issue a week or so ago when we were watching Hogfather. I pointed out to her that villains tend not to be very nice to their henchmen. "I understand!" C said. And she did.
  • I called up a guy today who had given me a landscaping business card some months ago, to do some beautification (gutters, bushes, lawnmowing, patio, driveway, and walk). I find it a little weird to hire this stuff out, but it's been a long, long time since we've had a helping hand, and things were starting to get pretty wild. It was $105 for two guys and it was worth every penny. We should really try harder to get yard help on a quarterly basis when we have a house of our own.
