Hey! We had a busy weekend with guests staying over. My sis and BIL had a concert in the city so we got to see/watch my Nephew! He's so sweet. He's special needs so it's more work watching him than I was used to with the girls but it went well. And just him and my sis are coming back in a few weeks cor some more fun!
My local sis is taking the girls for a sleepover today! I am grateful for a "day off" but I dont know what to do with my time haha. I think I've kinda lost sight of what makes ME happy and not catering to everyone else's needs first. Well, maybe I'll mess around with my pandora bracelets and charms. I could always add a few new charms that I've collected over the year. H and I might go out to dinner tonight, like *gasp* a date haha.
Tonight V made me feel old, lol. I'm not really up on current music, my audio time is mostly podcasts and audiobooks these days. But anyway, I was reading an article about a current top song, so i decided to look it up on youtube. As soon as it came on, V rushed over and was dancing and saying the song was his favorite. Apparently his teacher has "dance songs" on the class tv. He was singing along, it was pretty cute.
DH is storming about the house cause the brake replacement isn't going well. I'm hitting the sack early; hopefully he can fix whatever he broke, or else I'll be car-less tomorrow.
I started feeling not well last night so H and I ordered a pizza and watched Mad Men (what we've been binging lately). It was still nice but not the craft brew place we were going to do. Figures ☹ Also, since I can sleep in, I'm up at 5am...
I put J down for his afternoon nap in his room. G wanted me to come tuck him in my bed & lay with him.
Long story short I woke up 45 minutes later from an unintentional but glorious nap alone in my own bed 🙌🏼 G says when I fell asleep he decided I must be really tired, so he just went to the living room to play video games so I could sleep.
I spent the morning alone doing absolutely nothing...well, of significance. It was amazing. I'm feeling better today. Once the girls got home we ran to the store for a few things, I made dinner, and that's it for the day!
Also, Rue La La was having a random 65% off select Pandora and I maaay have gotten carried away. Hopefully DH won't notice...
We went out to Waffle House tonight with the intention of going right afterward to secure a spot to watch the town’s fireworks. Then decided maybe it wasn’t such a great plan to have the baby out so late past bedtime, so now he & I are home while DH & G go to watch the fireworks.
I’m not mad about some solo home time once the baby is in bed 😬
Happy Independence Day to all those here in the USA!
V and A were supposed to have a sleepover at my mother's after build a bear yesterday. (Oh my goodness they got spoiled rotten at build a bear!) But A started getting a fever and wss not feeling well so we ended up taking him home. V came home early instead of going to the parade cause he was worried about his brother.
A is feeling better but we'll see how it goes, we may not go out for fireworks tonight.
We went to a new town for 3rd of July fireworks bc the place we usually go was cancelled due to field/golf course conditions (been very rainy here). We loved it even more. It had live music in a pavilion, food, dinks, playground. A nice firework display too!
Today we have family over. H is smoking a pork shoulder for pulled pork sandwiches! Tonight hopefully my favorite place for fireworks if the weather holds out! The girls are loving being out and thinking it's naughty to be out after bed time lol. We are not sticklers, when it comes to summers, how late they are up when there are night time things going on.
Happy 4th! I just can't stay healthy this spring ugh. Now I have some major tonsillitis on my left side it feels like I am swallowing shards of glass. If it were on both sides I would be in making sure it's not strep. It's contributing to a migraine on that side too. So needless to say I have had a meh 4th. The kids did a neighborhood bike parade this morning and really enjoyed it. Then we saw you story 4, cute movie.
Norah has a swollen eye lid. It's the opposite one from when it happened in disney. I think it's allergies but isn't seeming to be going away as easily with meds this time. We are thinking it's because of all the extra time outside with the holiday and summer in general. We might be headed to the doctor if this doesn't clear up in a day or two. Kids, there's always somethin... but it could be worse too.
aggiebug hope you feel better soon! I'm sorry that it effected your holiday ☹
Thanks I am feeling pretty good now, just a normal sore throat now. Man that was legit the worst sore throat I have ever had. It's all good we didn't have huge plans anyway. Much better than being sick this weekend.
aggiebug could it have been hand foot and mouth because it was the worse pain I've EVER had. Throat sores and then the hand/feet sores. But some doctors say you can just get mouth/throat sores as adults.
dreemkin Hope N’s eye is better soon. Not to be an internet doctor but if it keeps coming back, could be blepharitis, a chronic inflammation/infection of the oil glands in the eyelids. Doubt a pedi could diagnose? But an ophthalmologist could. I have that. Good news is the first line of treatment is daily warm compress x3-5min and then scrubbing closed eyes with baby shampoo for at least two weeks. The heat helps open up the oil glands and loosen any plugs, the baby shampoo fights the germs that are taking advantage of the inflammation.
lilyelayne thanks for the suggestion. That came up in my internet search most often, besides allergies. Definitely something to ask the pedi if we can't get this under control. It is still swollen this morning. We've been putting a cold pack on it which seems to help temporarily but then it's bad again in the morning. The lid is reddish too.
