Oh hi guys! I missed a post yesterday just because it’s been such a weird week. The weather hasn’t let up since last week when it started snowing, and then just last night it turned to freezing rain bringing high winds and power outages. Now we’ve got massive flooding. The kids didn’t have school on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday, but so far it’s on for tomorrow (Friday)!
Jake broke his wrist last week and the doctor that casted him and discharged him from the ER told us that he may need surgery and that we need to see a specialist early this week. Except the specialist’s office is closed all week due to the weather, and apparently he is one of four specialists in BC that will operate on this particular bone (he broke the bone between his wrist and his thumb). So, Jake is in a lot of pain and although he’s a tough kid, this is really wearing him down. I wish I could take it for him <– understatement of a lifetime.
By Tuesday, Andrew and I were chomping at the bit to get out, so we dropped Callum off at Grandpa and Grandma Slane’s and we hit the gym for an hour. We alternated the track with the treadmill, and it felt SO GOOD to get that in that we did it again on Thursday. We had so much fun! People-watching at the gym is the BEST!
Callum’s new thing is to chase the cat around with the vacuum. I make sure it’s on so he’s at least picking up some crumbs.
He also loves chasing the cat around with my phone and taking pictures of her. Don’t get me wrong–they love each other! Well, most of the time, anyway. Her ears tell the truth though, don’t they?!
Being stuck at home makes it easy for me to keep up my veggie intake. I’m totally into these wraps lately. I layer on hummus, slice up avocado and sprinkle it with pink sea salt. Then I spread about 5 or so sun-dried tomatoes in oil all over it, and then I stuff it with herb salad and roll it all up and then I try to eat it fast before it falls apart. I also have a piece of pizza as backup.
Andrew just came home with apple pies from McDonald’s and a giant Coke Zero for me. I LOVE fountain pop SO MUCH. I love how I can taste the waxiness from the inside of the cup. I’m super sick with a head cold and I don’t feel like boozing it up.
Sorry for such a lame post, but I wanted you guys to know what’s been going on!
I’m totally stressed out about Jake’s wrist! What should I do? Do you guys have any suggestions on how I can help him?
A cat’s ears always tell the truth. Do you guys have loud body language? Which part of you tells the truth? Your eyes? Your arms?
Have you ever cleaned the house in the nude?
