continuing with the busy  

Yesterday turned out to be very busy. Not only did I get a lot of housework done and write 1700 words (!), I had to pop into town, so Mom met me and we went to look for high chairs. At Mothercare, they gave me a free flyer for a baby photo shoot, and Young Indiana was looking particularly adorable in a baseball outfit (the baseball outfits just *slay* me) so I thought what the hell. So we spent, I don’t know, half an hour, anyway, getting his picture taken, which he by and large thought was just brilliant. I’m hoping not more than about three of them prove to be irresistable, because the whole package costs €300 and, well, just no. But it was quite a lot of fun. :)

I actually got up and wrote again this morning, which is a particular triumph because Ted didn’t have to get up today. Go me. :)

thinks to do:
- change the kitty litter
- clean the fridge
- read the pattern for the coat
- write another 500 words (1K more accomplished! woot!)
- mop the downstairs (I vacuumed the front room instead)
- more laundry (it never ends)
- empty the rest of the garbages
- go to the protest

(The protest is against garda violence at protests, as some cops beat up some students at last weekend’s protest.)

What is being protested, and by whom?

Arthur was sickeningly easy to photograph as an infink, a toddler, and a young boy. The one time we got a family portrait done, there was this cute velour tuxedo onesie we put him in. The photographer in the shop (in her 20's, this was a chain shop) had had an excruciatingly bad day with the kids she worked with, and when Arthur was so camera-friendly and happy to be the center of attention (still is), it was so easy for her she nearly cried.

I'd blanche at the idea of E300 for a set, too--it's bad enough when we buy the school picture package.

That's an insane amount of money for kid portraits!

Although I understand the temptation. Such adorable pictures of my kid are hard to resist. That's why we'd try to have Al take the kids in to get the cheap package special ($7.99 for a package of the first portrait). He would buy the package special. I would be lured into buying the other pictures, too.
