So here I was, almost certain that I'd neglected to post in over a week... Turns out my schedule is all mixed up. Shabbos went by but not a whole week. Super confusing. Last Wednesday I started taking my vitamins again. This time I'm doing it 'for real' - aiming for 6 months then a re-test at the bloodworks place. Here's to hoping that it helps get all my numbers out of the low-end red color. Late Wednesday afternoon we went out to the mall. Buzz 'demanded' a slice of pizza - he then opted to walk around the mall a couple of times then he led us out to the car. Some days he just doesn't want to play.
Buzz was super excited to cook - he kicked off the day by literally making 'breakfast IN bed' for me. (Yes, that's my stick blender, sans blade - he can reach EVERYTHING on the counter - it's insane!) His next task was undertaken in the living room (under the supervision of Z...) while I organized part of the guest room. Buzz took out his very largest stock pot (think HUGE) and got some soup 'cooking'. He must have felt that it needed some additional seasoning because he got out
Shabbos morning after shul we walked over to The FamBily House. The Freddies were there for the weekend - and Buzz was super excited to hang out with his cousin! Lunch was great! Then we relaxed, played a 6 player game of Settlers, relaxed some more... and eventually found our shoes, packed up our water bottles, leashed our dog, and headed out to The Park at the Top of the Hill. The kids had a blast running around and the puppy was thrilled to sit in a shady tower of the climbing structure and catch the breeze. After almost an hour Fuzzle and Yo'Abba went home and the rest of us continued on towards S&S's house. We were already halfway up the hill so the remainder of the walk was pretty easy. Buzz was getting tired and grumpy but he perked up when he realized where we were going. It was a pleasure to see S&S, as always. I ate waaaay too many grapes - and am totally thinking of picking up some more when we go to the store later this week. We headed home with a little less than an hour of Shabbos left. Phil joined us, she was after the leftover chicken from Friday night. (She had the right idea, it WAS delicious!) We partied for a while and eventually it was time for sleep.
We went over to The FamBily House to use their printer after our fritzed out on us. We ended up hanging out and sticking around for Shabbos leftovers (so it was like we were there ALL weekend instead of just for lunch.) We dined-&-dashed as is our habit - but it's the best way to get Buzz into bed on schedule. He was fast asleep in his cozy little bed by 8:32pm. Perfect.
Z will be working for another few hours so I think I'll load some tv onto the ipad and crawl into bed. Sleep sounds good. Tomorrow I guess I might tackle the laundry hill that's taking over my bathroom. Maybe I"ll wash some dishes and scrub out the kitchen sinks too - they could REALLY use it. Merely speculation for the moment - but who knows... It could happen.
