Then it was home and I thought making dinner. No, did not happen. No cooking, it was too hot and I was too tired (as was Kayla) for cooking. Instead, I cleaned up while she watched the first half of a movie and then back to town for Bob Evan's for dinner. I hate that I sat her in front of the laptop for a movie (Nick & I didn't have ANY TV time.) But, I'll be honest, I'm still having a good deal of pain from my last procedure and frankly this weather sucks. Muggy, hot, gross. So, I had to shower or I would have melted. Ewww.
Anyway, we ate dinner (tearily, Kayla and maybe me a little); then went to the store for some more of my meds (Kayla might be beginning to suspect something is up) and some much needed groceries. (I ran out of bread and am getting low on milk. How do I miss these things?) Then home, just in time for a storm to start, so no bath (though she probably REALLY needs one), stories and bedtime for Miss Sue. Now, she is knocked out (between camp and time with Aunt April she was in the pool around 2.5 hours today!) and I have work to do. But to be honest, I'm totally stalling. I don't want to finish the laundry, wash the breakfast dishes, pack lunches & bags, take out the trash and generally red-up. I don't want to!!!! But, I must. Almost every night I've had the kids I try to see if we can trade places and I'll go to bed while they do chores and while the almost go for it, it always fails. Bummer. The joys of adulthood.
Okay, that's enough whining for me. I need to get to work and get on with it! (Life, that is.) I did have a wonderful time with my baby girl and, as proof, I only have 3 pictures for today. When we were together I was playing and having such a great time, I totally forgot to pick up the camera. Oops. I'll do better tomorrow.
But, here they are. Two of Kayla and one of her artwork. Have a lovely day all!
|Such a pretty smile. I had to beg and force her to open her eyes, as she was 'tanning and resting.' Oh baby girl!|
Oh, and to go with my blog title for tonight, I must tell you. I have been singing, humming, and listening in my head to the oddest compilation of songs today. 'Monday, Monday' ; 'Leaving on a Jet Plane'; 'Barbie World' (my kids gave me that one); 'Firework'; and 'Somewhere over the rainbow'. I know, I'm odd.
