So today I called United and changed my ticket to fly on Tuesday instead, to avoid this Fay thing.
Tonight Chris calls me and says that he doesn't think I have to worry about flying in tomorrow, based on the latest forecast.
The thing is, I didn't say goodbye to my sis or her kids, instead saying I'd drive up tomorrow with Amanda. Amanda already has agreed to give up a day of being surly around the house in order to accompany me. Also, I wanted to get more pictures of Kalia's tiny, perfect feet.
So I think I should just stay until Tuesday. But then the thought of not being home until 11 p.m. on Tuesday night makes me want to cry. Blah.
I should probably just suck it up and enjoy this one extra day here. But JESUS am I ever homesick. :(
In non-stupid-storm related news, Cute Macyisms:
Macy is only allowed one crayon at a time. Someone has to act as Crayon Cop anytime she is coloring, for if she was allowed as many colors as she wanted, one would surely end up rolling under the couch, and would soon after probably be used to draw on the walls. Macy knows this is the rule, but nonetheless always tries to appeal to the Crayon Cop to just sneak her a couple extra. So today Amanda was the Crayon Cop, and had to deny Macy's requests for extra crayons. Macy, decided to leave the pleading behind for another approach. We overheard Macy tell Amanda, "Amanda, caring is sharing."
She has a Dora potty seat. She likes to sit on it and read books, just like the grown-ups. She gets 2 suckers every time she poops. Sometimes as she is sitting there, trying to earn her a couple of suckers, she grunts, "I'm potty training!"
This is something like when parents tell you how cute their kids are, and what cute things they did, and it's totally boring and all whatever, right? Probably. But I would like to remember these things anyhow, so here they get written.
Also, I just heard her saying her nightly prayers and I'll be damned if that isn't the cutest version of Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep that I've ever heard.
Ok, off to lay me down to sleep. :)
