Dear Abs is wearing deoderant. She started smelling a little musty. I asked her if she ever noticed any bad smells, and she told me her armpits smelled like burritos sometimes.

I went off to buy her deoderant. She has wiped mine or her sister's deoderant on the wall, carved in it, broken it, destroyed it, created art with it. I was relieved to find......roll on!

So far it's been a week and she hasn't managed to get the ball out of the container. She puts it on every morning and evening--guess she feels like she needs it--and then she walks around with her arms sticking out to give it ample time to dry. I can't imagine Abs growing up, but I guess in this way she is! Unfortunately I was hoping that the whining and trail of destruction would disappear first.

I went and got a pedicure today and got my eyebrows done. Even if I am unemployed, I need to look nice, right?

I've got a pile of books that I want to read and a pile of books that I have to read. Where to start.....

Heck, who cares. As long as you have time to write, keep a journal of all of your escapades. It'll make great reading in later years.

Burritos?! I have heard armpit smells described as a lot of things, but "burritos?" I laughed until I cried.....I wonder if it was what she said, or that she is growing up?

Don't worry, maybe in another week she'll figure out how to get the roller ball out.
