Today we had a repairman from GE come to fix (again!!) our dishwasher.  Sophie decided she didn't want him to see her, so she hid behind this chair in our family room.  She stayed there for about 25 minutes, and then had to use the bathroom, so she came and found me to tell me.  I said she could go ahead and use it, but she gave me a look like there was no way she was going to use the bathroom on the main level of the house(right near us) when the repairman was around.  I suggested she goes use a bathroom upstairs which she happily bounded away to do.
When she came back down, I asked her why she didn't want the repairman to see her.  She said she was "shy of him."  She never did let him see her, silly girl.

I was hoping to be able to show you pictures of the big project I've been working on the past week, but didn't make any progress over the weekend because we spent the weekend at Purdue's Bug Bowl.  If you haven't seen our pictures from Elliott's blog, you will definitely want to click here.

A parting word:  Never buy GE appliances.

Ewwwww. EWWWWWWWW!!! All those bugs! I've still got an awful grimace on my face just thinking about it. You guys get the parent of the year award for taking your kids and watching -- I don't think I could have done it. AND, I have to say, that millipede thing just grossed me out -- triple ewwww!!!

On a more positive note -- Sophie is ADORABLE!

I'm glad she was able to come out and ask your help! What a doll she is.

It is so funny when they decide to all of a sudden be shy. She is definitely not shy at our house:)
