Welcome to today’s link-up for Week in My Life 2013! The linky is below- just link to your post!
On the way home he fell asleep. As I pulled in, I saw our cleaning lady was still at the house. She usually comes on Thursdays when I’m at the office so today. It’s the best money I spend all month. In fact, we don’t have cable and I don’t care if I can keep her. I decided to drive to get gas and have the car washed. Ethan slept the whole time.
I came home and she was still there so I just came in and said hi. Ethan was on my shoulder and of course he woke up (that’s why I didn’t go in earlier). From there, he had a CRANK FEST. He laid on the landing of the stairs and asked for a snack but wouldn’t tell me what he wanted nor come with me to look in the pantry. After a while, I decided I’m plop him back in the car and drive to Starbucks so he could chill the EFF out. He of course screamed and cried the entire way there. You guys, he was demonic! He rarely gets like this but wake up abruptly from a nap and he’s insane.
Once he snapped out of it he was happy as a clam.
After we picked up Noah and they had a snack, we took Trajan our dog for a walk. He’s blind from diabetes (been blind a little over 2 years now) so taking him and two kids for a walk is no small feat. But he needed it and we had fun.
After that, I decided to meet the hubs at the gym. My goal is 4-5 times a week but lately it’s been 2 and occasionally 3. Since dinner was already cooked, the routine after the gym would be easy. I ran for about 20 minutes then we did weights. That’s me trying to look like I’m NOT taking a picture. LOL.
After dinner, we broke out a game I got at the Type A Parent Conference from Time to Play Magazine. It’s called Headbandz and you put a card on your band and one person or everyone tries to guess it. We played the game LOOSELY but man, did the kids have fun! I love seeing them get excited about getting answers right.
Tonight, I’m curled up on the couch with a glass of wine and my trusty Mac. Only 2 days left of the challenge! Can’t wait for tomorrow- we’re going to the NC State Fair!
