This week has been SLOW. I don’t think I’ve gotten showers until lunch or after. Work is slow. We’ve done barely anything really since the lock-in last Thursday. Last night just the four of us went to get Japanese which was a half-pleasant experience. I only say half-pleasant because Lexi was wanting to get out of the seat until the food got there and then I spent the whole time telling Emma to eat or asking Lexi to eat, etc. And then, to top it off, I went to the restroom at the end and dropped my keys in the toilet. It was clean water and I hadn’t gone yet. I stared down at the keys and I was like, that’s $250 sitting down there, I’ve got to get it out. So yes, I reached IN the water to get them out and rinsed them as best as I could. Oh well. But the girls ate pretty good while they ate and I was able to finish my meal. So that’s good.
Scott and I have been playing Scrabble almost nightly the past few days. I LOVE Scrabble although I usually lose. However, I managed a 100 point win last night over him. Usually my sister gets in on our games if she’s here but it’s just been us this week. Which is kind of nice. Because we actually are doing something together that is not required and it’s just for fun. And it’s at home. Well, I can think of one more thing like that we do, but hey, this isn’t THAT type of blog. LOL.
In other news, Lexi has thrown up a couple times in the past 5 days. Saturday morning was random but I think it was due to a bunch of Sprite she drank Friday night which she has never done and then yogurt on top of that. She was fine all weekend and then threw up a good bit Monday night. And of course that was red kool-aid. And then she had some more of that kool-aid Tuesday morning and threw up a little more. And then she was fine. So I think that was due to the stir-in red kool-aid stuff she’s never had. Anyway, she’s eaten chicken, fruit, crackers, pop-tarts and stuff since then so she seems fine and it doesn’t seem like a virus.
Next Wednesday we have decided to go to Maryland until the next Sunday. Whoo Hoo! I’m technically out of vacation except for a few hours I intend to take at Christmas when we go up so I will be working from up there. Bummer, but what else can I do? At least it will be different and I will be able to see family.
Lexi’s birthday is next Friday so we’re having a double-party for them while we’re up there. My [extended] family never gets to see them on their birthdays so I think it’s pretty cool. Although my ILs didn’t seem to like the idea. But I never apologize when it comes to that because they get to see them like 3 times a year and if they situations were reversed, it would be the same for them.
Monday I am taking snacks to Lexi’s class for her birthday. Hopefully this won’t be one of those things that stresses me. I was thinking about getting Emma to decorate some cookies and maybe taking all the kids some bubbles or something. I mean, what do 18mo-2 yr olds really want?? Half of them will not even realize what is going on. I’m hesitant to go in her room. I’m afraid she’ll have a fit when I leave if I go into her classroom. But I would really like to see how things work around there so I’m going to try to go. Not sure how that will work with my work but I’m going to try. Especially since usually drop her off at 8:45 and they don’t eat snack until 9:40. Maybe I’ll just take in the snacks. Who knows.
