I need a nap

Lilly had a doctor appointment on Friday and got a clean bill of health. She weighed in at 8 pounds and 6 ounces and the doctor said she looked fine.

We have been trying to potty train Violet for the past year, and today Cindy decided we were just going to put her in big girl underwear and see what happened. One accident, but the rest of the day she told us when she had to go.

Candy, parties, big girl panties, and even beatings have been tried in getting Violet to go in the potty chair. We decided to go buy a bunch of Disney princesses and pinned them to the wall. Every time she goes poopy in the potty chair, she gets a princess. They have been up there for two weeks, so it's pretty challenging.

Today was a major breakthrough though. Cindy doesn't have to be anywhere until Tuesday (except for church Sunday) so we are going to try to keep the big girl underwear going until then.

I worked today, covering a quilt show and a health fair, then I fought Photoshop for an hour and decided to come home. I was trying to crop a photo to a specific size (width) but it kept locking in the depth. I fiddled with it for an hour before I decided I would just come home and ask the experts on Monday.

I am still trying to decide what to do about my camera -- either way I have to take it to Beaverton to get it fixed, and they need the camera too. So I think next week I am going to play with the Nikons. The Silverton Appeal didn't need any photos next week anyway. :) Not like we put them on the website.

Oh, and I got called to jury duty. Yes, I am going to try to get out of it.
