So do you love how the day after I get national exposure I don’t post a single thing? *lol*
I’ve been on the go since this morning. Early morning was Synergy – my biweekly workout at church. We did Tae Bo and the Power Mile Walk again and surprisingly it wasn’t nearly as hard as it was last week. Okay wait – it was still hard, but not REALLY hard. That is encouraging. Sue brought in another Tae Bo tape so next week we’ll do a full hour – that should kick it up a notch or two!
Then I came home and Denis and I tried to install our new window blind for the front window. Lots of frustration ensued because we couldn’t get the new blind on the old brackets even though they are the exact same for both the new and old blinds. We finally gave up when Denis had to go to work.
Just as he left for work I put the kids down for naps and caught up on Tivo a bit. I finally got around to watching this past week’s “Alias” and can I just say two things about it? Yay for having the “freaks and geeks” guy on but BOO to the cheesy mini-helicopter thing as a weapon. What a joke that was.
CootieGirl eventually woke up and proceeded to play the day away – her playroom looks like a tornado hit it, but she had fun and is great at keeping herself entertained. And thankfully, she believes in using ALL of her toys (which the playroom can attest to) as opposed to ignoring all of them and yet demanding more.
At about 3 p.m. CootieGirl tried to get in CootieBoy’s swing, and got really mad with me when I told her she was too old and too big and that it might break. She started crying so I said, “Look, when Daddy comes home, you walk up to him and you say ‘Park!’ and maybe he’ll take you to the park where you can swing.”
Do you know that about an hour later Denis came home and she came running from the playroom, went right up to him for a quick hug, and then stepped back and said, “Park!” Denis didn’t quite know what she was saying but I knew exactly what she said and couldn’t believe that an hour of activity went by and she still remembered. Because even I had forgotten at that point.
So the family bundled up in the van and drove to the park where CootieBoy enjoyed the brisk air with me while Denis escorted CootieGirl around the various playground amenities. About 30 minutes later we hopped back in the van and drove home, where we proceeded to finish putting up the blind, and then made pancakes for dinner (CootieGirl helped make the batter and did it with gusto (read: milk went everywhere).
I just finished giving her a bath and putting her to bed, and downstairs Denis is watching basketball and feeding CootieBoy a bottle. In good news, CootieBoy actually slept the whole night last night. Finally! I had forgotten what that was like over the past week.
Tonight is basketball (I’m in the middle of the pack in the pool but if Florida and Louisville win their games this weekend then I’m sitting pretty as the highest score person with Kentucky as the final pick).
And that’s your update for Saturday. Have a good evening!
