Last week Buzz had a day where he wasn't feeling so great. I figured that a mental-health-day was in order. But I wasn't going to let it be all fun. No way. I set him to work. First he swept the floor, followed by washing dishes, and last but not least he scrubbed out the oven. (Ok, fine. To be completely forthcoming, when I say he swept - I mean that I swept and he then scattered my dust piles everywhere while I hunted down the dustpan that he had hidden. Also, I scrubbed out the oven - then he insisted on wiping it dry because apparently I hadn't done a good enough job. He did wash the silverware though - and any unbreakable dishes. He is a very thorough dishwasher.)
He is DELIGHTED with this mini-Kenwood-mixer. It is adorable though, so I don't blame him. He also got a little hand mixer, which is also just so cute I can't even describe it. And he's finally stopped trying to convince me to share my machines with him, which let's be honest, is a relief.
Yesterday Z and Buzz were both slightly under the weather. Oddly enough I was full of energy and itched to be productive. So I cleaned the kitchen, sorted through Buzz's clothes and organized his dresser, and found other chores to keep myself busy. I wandered around the house so much that I actually managed to hit my step-goal of 5,000 steps.
Today Buzz deserved a treat for overcoming a big personal hurdle in gan! So after picking him up, we went to the mall. I snagged an awesome deal on some clothes for him thanks to a sale and my birthday-month-discount at The Children's Place. While I was shopping I heard a very familiar voice that I hadn't heard in quite some time. It was Little Brother!!! In The Sun House!!! I'm pretty sure it's been over a year since we saw him last! He had to run, so we only got a minute to talk - but I can't wait to move and then have them over for a Shabbos! He did let me in on some interesting information - somebodies super special were upstairs wrapping up a meal at Rimon. I flew up the escalator and crashed the very end of Aviva and Aunt Foofoo's meal!
It was great to see them! Friends are the family you pick yourself - no matter how much time goes by between visits! Love love love! Totally made my week! Buzz went into Puppy-mode when Z dragged him in to say 'hi', but we all know that just means he's crazy excited about what's going on.
And now on to tomorrow. OT in the morning, and I need to make a peanut butter pie for Shavuot. I should really start packing things up here, but I'm a little bit in denial. 31 more days?! Yikes!!!
