Hey hey. This summer is rolling by. We half started potty training but man it makes me nuts I just don't deal well with kids stuck at home so many days in a row. C is doing pretty well but then we have to get out and he is in a pull up because I had too much to do to go underwear and he just doesn't care about the potty. He also doesn't care about having wet pants.
I love my family but man it's nice to get back to normal here. My sis and therefore nephew are so loud and bring so much when they come. Also the girls were acting really moody/tearful when they were here. Jealousy of a younger kid around or out of sorts?!
I did the obligatory weekly grocery shopping today after my sis left. I also gave haircuts to the girls ✂️ I took off about 3 inches on A, only a trim for N. I kinda want to do shorter even on A so I might cut it again another day. It would be cute to do a bob for a summer cut.
Going to try making (healthier) chicken parmesan today for dinner🤞
Went out to eat last night for SIL’s birthday ( yes my SILs have birthdays three days apart) to a steak restaurant in the next town over none of us have been to before. DH and I got the smallest sirloin to share for our family of four: two pounds 😱 I have to share this pic of J because I adore it
Taking same SIL to her eye doctor appt today. My dad’s working so we’ll get to visit him while we’re there.
Last night BIL announced he's engaged! Let's hope for a better girl this time. She seems nice and she has a lovely daughter Norah's age. Another cousin for them and I get a (first) niece! They live far away though so we rarely het to see them.
Tonight my sis is taking the girls for a two day sleep over! Hopefully this time we can go to the local microbrewery like we planned last time but then I was sick.
I don't think I mentioned that Gatsby has a bladder infection with crystals. I feel so bad but he's really perked up with his medicine and special food. He is drinking/peeing a lot though with this food. Hopefully it'll be all clear at the end of the week!
Dinner last night was great. H and I went to a local microbrewery which was awesome. Very nice beers (I got a flight) and great food. Will probably go again sometime! We also got cold stone creamery! The only bad thing is, I think I have a sinus infection but it seems to be better today. Oh yeah I actually do HAVE to do some laundry today to remake up the guest room for Thursday. Booo!
I strolled through goodwill, got dunkin iced pistachio coffee, and picked up some lunch. At goodwill I found a really nice Pottery Barn 12x16 frame that I needed for a caricature we got done of the girls. It was in great shape after a little cleaning - $3 😲. I also found a few movies, a few scentsy bricks for my warmer, and a brand new My Little Pony shirt for A.
Now I am watching YouTube videos while doing towel and guest bedding laundry. I think H is going to pick up Panera salads for dinner so, I don't have to cook!
We have a bbq at a friend's house this afternoon. I'm hoping it isn't too hot up there. I have to make potato salad this morning but other than that no plans for the morning. V is playing with duplos and singing, A is climbing on a huge carboard box the neighbor brought over.
