Paternity Leave: Day 23

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

Sammy let me sleep in a while today, which I always appreciate. Thanks, kid!

Once we got up and going, we took a simple trip to Chipotle and the car wash, then home. I spent the rest of the day doing various things about the house.

First thing was a bit of vacuuming. I was originally gonna get the vacuum out just to get the dog fur off my car’s back seat, but I also did a bit of cleaning around the house with it just cuz I love my Dyson so much; it’s just so good!

Let’s see, what else did I do? Oh yeah, I fixed the illuminated light switch in the bathroom. It wasn’t illuminating anymore, so I took it apart, tightened up some metal bits, put it back together again, and we’re good to go! The hardest part was figuring out which circuit breaker was for the bathroom, because all the labels in the breaker box were wrong. Handy!

I also made some soon-to-be iced tea. That is, I brewed up two K-Cups of English Breakfast (10 oz) twice each, for a total of 40 oz of tea that I can cut with ice and water to make iced tea at my leisure. I keep it in a sealed bottle in the fridge. SCIENCE!

Other stuff included doing the dishes, entertaining the baby, and calling an old friend to tell her about Samantha! Friends not on Facebook must be tracked down the hard way.

Here’s a picture of me and Samantha at Chipotle:
