I don't feel great today. I stupidly stayed up late watching a lame movie, but I kept waiting for some action to start. Nope, waste of two hours. It's one thing when you know that it'll be a slow moving movie, but when the description makes it sound like a James Bond/Jason Bourne mix, you expect a little more. Then of course, the baby decided to wake up a little early this morning. Little stinker.
I'm also trying to figure out why my little man cannot 1) flush the toilet and 2) close the bathroom door, especially when the toilet is not flushed! The baby monster can somehow tell when that door is open. She will come from the far corner of the house to gleefully splash in the toilet. shudder... I guess I should be happy that we can get into the bathroom at all. I like to think I can take care of myself, but my husband had to rescue me yesterday. He knew the secret location of the tiny screwdriver. I have my own toolbox here in the house that I am used to using for household things. I should have looked in his tool box I suppose, but I forgot about it. However it was done, we are again able to go into our bathroom, for which I am thankful.
I had not considered playing the game again until we were visiting family for Christmas. While there, we were introduced to the touch phone application, Words with friends. It's just scrabble on the phone and you can challenge others to play. It's actually a lot of fun, especially when you win, and our evenings have become games between my husband and myself. He beats me almost every time.
Our iphone is actually an old one that was given to us. We don't use it as a phone at all, it's mostly for games to keep the kids occupied during long trips and boring waits.
This new game, however, has cut into their game time, and they have noticed. They want to get in on the word fun as well. So, this morning, after several requests to play the word game, I dug the old scrabble game out, set it up and the kids and I made some words. It was a little tough considering the four year old is still just mastering what letter is what, but with my help, we had a nice little game going. Of course, we didn't pay much attention to points, or the double word spots. And I let them stretch the rules a little. Seeing how words go together is the important thing. Adding up the points will come later. All in all, we had us a good time.
