I'm so handy

Late last night our garbage disposal burned out. I woke up this morning feeling awful because there was a counter full of dishes and red velvet cake sitting in the sink that was not draining. Thankfully, my visiting teachers were scheduled to come this morning. They watched Miles while I went to the store, purchased a new garbage disposal, and installed it. I had to work with plumbing and electrical and deal with pink water and chunks of red velvet cake. However, the garbage disposal is now installed and it works with no leaks. I am eternally grateful to my visiting teachers, who without them, I could not have accomplished this task today. I don't want to see red velvet cake, though, for a long time.

Shots are the pits

Miles just got his first set of vaccines. I got the lucky job of holding him while they poked him with three needles. After the first one, he started to cry hard. Then the second one came and his whole head turned bright red. That's when the person administering the shots said "This last one is the worst." It was probably the most pain Miles has ever experienced. At least he is sleeping now.
