Bullshark is still gone. I'm a few days into my solo mommy for the rest of the summer adventure. Here's what's happening, as cribbed from an email to hubby.
Sunday, we went to a water park up by my sister's house. It was very last
minute, and my brother in law paid for our admission, which was extraordinarily sweet. Brother in law took his two kids and my son. My sister pretty much spent
the day with Angelfish, and I was on baby watch. Lionfish, of course, refused to nap except for during the
brief time we ate dinner. Overall, it was a relaxing fun time and a really
necessary distraction from Bullshark's departure for Clownfish. Angelfish LOVED it. Loved loved. She who shrieks in the tub "no spray" (she only takes baths as a result) was getting sprayed all over and happy as can
be. Sister thinks she'll be fine in shower now, so long as she's wearing
Sunday night I drank caffeine on the way home from the waterpark.
Needless to say, sleep didn't happen Sunday night. But I did watch a lot of
Doctor Who on demand. I'm a new viewer, so watching a show about time travel all sorts of out of order is confuzzling. I've seen most of season 3, the first episode of season 1, and some of season 5. So, yeah, I've seen three different Doctors, but haven't seen enough to know precisely why yet. Creeped out by the Weeping Angels. They absolutely scare me more than Daleks do. Yep. Totally hooked.
Clownfish loves LEGO camp. If you're interested, its through this company. He has a disposable
27 shot camera and he's taking pics of his projects. Can't wait to see them. He finds it very weird to use a manual- wind camera with no preview, though.
I got a haircut today on my "free" Tuesday afternoon, when I was down to only one child. Yes, I know, pics or it didn't happen. I'll try today on FB.
I made the Alton Brown tomato sauce using tomatoes from my garden. Hopefully it'll keep in the fridge til Bullshark gets home. We'll just have
to add the one cup white wine and heat to boil then simmer for 5 before
serving. Seems like it will be YUMMY.
Super bummed that our housing appraisal came in lower than we were expecting/needing. Not sure if it will affect the refi at this point.
Planning to make chicken fajitas, black beans and rice tomorrow because my friend is coming for dinner on Friday night. We'll see how that goes with Angelfish hanging onto my leg as I cook. Clueless as to what's on the menu for tonight. Thinking breakfast for dinner ...
