Another crazy week
After the kids were down for the night we would have a glass of wine and talk or watch a movie. It was great to have some girl time! Oh! We also got pedicures! My hubby surprised me this week with an awesome new pair of shoes that he picked out all by himself. I would post a picture, but I was getting some strange comments from weirdos on Flickr so I'll refrain.
I sadly took Aunt Raven to the airport today. Her flight was pretty close to the time Roarke had swim lessons, so I figured I would stay in that part of town since it takes 30 minutes to go back home (I didn't want to have to turn around and come right back the same way). I had to kill two hours so I went to Target to stock up on baby food and was planning on going to the grocery store on base, but I took too long browsing at Target--figures! I decided to go to the on base food court for dinner then go to swim lessons. I realize after I leave Target that I have forgotten Roarke's swim trunks. Great. We have 4 pairs of swim trunks in his current size already and now I have to buy another! We just sit down to dinner when Roarke exclaims he has to go potty. Geez. I have two trays filled with food and I'm in the process of trying to feed Cian so he'll stop the audio onslaught he's been treating me too the past 30 minutes. I hoover my food while I try to encourage Cian to do the same, scoop up all of Roarke's uneaten pizza and juice and make a mad dash to the bathroom. I was planning on sitting back down to let everyone finish eating, but I realize the BX (military department store) was about to close and I still hadn't bought his trunks. We race in (of course toddler boys clothes are in the VERY back) where, thankfully, they are all marked down 50%. After our purchase we need to get going so I put dinner on hold. We run out to the car where I strip Roarke down and put his trunks on and hop back in the car to race to the pool. (insert loud clap of thunder and lightning). Lovely. We drive back home in a torrential downpour. When we pull into the driveway I find my garage remote no longer works and I have to jump out to use the key pad. Great.
It's good to know things go back to normal so quickly after a house guest leaves. :)
Little to say craft-wise. Tried working on my block for my Christmas bee. I'm supposed to do a pinwheel and then another of my choice. I tried to do the pinwheel, but I've ripped it up three times because I can't get the points to meet precisely right! Arrrrrrr! If anyone has a good tutorial or tips on this, let me know! I think I'm going to work on the block of my own design and take a breather from the pinwheel!
