Everybody loves my baby

Last night we went to Portland to visit some friends and see a folk band.  We hadn't seen our friends in 2 years.  It was fun, but quite expensive to pay the babysitter since it is a 4-hour round trip drive to Portland.  Luckily, our friends have a guest room and seem quite baby-friendly, so next time we visit we don't have to worry about either of those things if we don't want to.

DH is on vacation from work.  Today is his 3rd day off.  He's gotten a lot done around the house and on his to-do list, just in the last couple of days.  It's really nice.  Also, with him being on vacation, we actually were able to give the babysitter some time off, which helps us with our expenses.  This was DH's idea; he really wanted to spend more time with Libby even if it meant getting up earlier than he's used to.

He said things happen in 3s, but we've had to do repairs or replacements on 4 appliances in the last few days.  Three were due to user error, so maybe that is the magic number and it will stop now...

One of them was the vacuum cleaner, but it turned out to be a good thing the old one broke.  We got a new bagless vacuum and were amazed and shocked at how much dirt our old vacuum was leaving behind.  Ack!  And it's just a Dirt Devil bagless for $50!
