Do you know what sucks more than being too busy for words all weekend? Having a snarly headache that wrapped my entire brain in a hellish grip and made my brain feel all mushy and painful and OMG I still freaking have that same headache as I type! That is three days for those of you doing the math...
I planned to accomplish so much this weekend. I laid about and did nothing while my sick husband did EVERYTHING. I suck.
Our poor poor house. Usually when I go on a trip I whip the house into a frenzy of cleaning goodness. This time I did not (before Disney that is.) I have not cleaned since two weeks before Christmas when we had a party and guests. Embarrassing. Kevin vacuumed the whole house this weekend, I managed to swipe a cloth across one little area (okay the front of the TV because it was driving me bonkers that I could see finger marks on it while I sat sucking my thumb in the corner of the couch...) and I cleaned our disease ridden - I mean - disgusting bathroom. That is it. Oh, I did the usual laundry, dishes and groceries. Can I hire someone to do those three things? 'Cause I will. I hate them. They despise me too.
We did manage to go furniture shopping again. Matthew needs a bed. We also ended up walking away with a totally unplanned purchase. A king bed for our room - HOORAY! We know need all new bedding for our room and Matthew needs a duvet/duvet cover (I bought him a blanket at Bed Bath & Beyond this past week and sheets many moons ago from Pottery Barn that have since been discontinued which pissed me off because I cannot buy a matching duvet cover - BASTARDS!) Also, now both of our rooms need headboards but that will come later.
Let's just get through the transition of a big kid bed/room for Matthew... AND holy shit more room in our bed for, well, us. Not that I do not love my dogs but good lord what were we thinking? Santana was 3 lbs when we brought him home and he almost died of Parvo that is what I was thinking. Lucy, well she was just pathetic looking so sad sitting at the end of the bed while we three snuggled up that she just had to be a part of our bed (dog bed).
Kevin & Matthew went for a skate at the ice rink with his friend, Grayson on Sunday. They were there forever to the point where I started thinking 'OMG I should have gone. What if Matthew fell on his head and they are sitting at the ER? I should have made them take his helmet..." Sigh. They were fine and Matthew is getting ever more confident on skates - or so I am told because I was not there to document (YES I know photos from Disney and all that - I have NOT done it... Sorry.) We discussed plans (actually we have done this 2-3 times in the past few months - mostly I want to keep Matthew entertained after Pancake arrives...) for Matthew to take up some real live kiddo activities this coming year!!! Skating classes and what ever else he will be old enough to do! That is exciting! I am looking forward to seeing him have an outlet for all that flippin' energy that I would like to learn how to harness because holy crap think of the money I could make off that kind of energy!
We watched the Super Bowl - well part of it. I indulged in chips and French onion dip (my fav.) The game was boring until the last 6 minutes.
Oh one more thing - people I need you to help me: what are the requirements for a kid to get into a booster seat for the car? OR where can I go to find out. Matthew is around 40 lbs and we measured on the ghetto chart in his room this weekend - that is a triple check - we could not believe it the 1st two times: 38" tall (3 ft 2 inches - I could not believe it...)
Jen: Have you had that baby yet? If not, I am sending 'having baby today' vibes your way!
That is it. Headache - still here. What did you do this weekend?
