Okay, so this time I’m going to really try to follow the rules. We are supposed to make a list of accomplishments, things we did during the week. I think up to this point all I pretty much did was post random photos of stuff I want to buy and to let the world know that I had diarrhea.
On Tuesday, I cleaned the house like crazy and then packed up some sandwiches and snacks and we took the kids out on the boat.
We got the boat at the end of the season so it kinda sucks that we haven’t been out on it that much, but it gives us time to stock up on toys for next year (I’m dying to
break my leg wakeboard!).
Then on Wednesday I ran a tonne of errands and by the end of the day I just felt like such a swamp donkey. I had white hairs poking up around my hairline and the ends of my hair looked and felt like straw. I got Andrew to chop about four inches off the back. It feels much better. Here’s the before:
And here’s the during:
I haven’t taken an after pic yet. The whole shebang cost me about $9 for cut and colour! I’m only emotionally high-maintenance.
I can’t remember exactly what I did on Thursday but I know I posted this photo on Instagram so I must have done some writing at some point! I have to fit it into my life somehow!
And of course, while the kids were at school, Callum and I played at the park, where he swung on the big boy swings for the first time ever!
And spent some good quality time relaxing at home…
I met Freddy’s new girlfriend Christina and then Freddy asked me on Friday if he could go to her house after school. This was how our conversation went:
I wish I could show you the conversation I had with Jake on Instagram. OMG. I can’t. I want to so bad, but no. He’s turning 16 next week. Teenagers will kill me. I keep putting my fingers to my neck to check my pulse. I’m barely hanging on.
I put my own parents through hell when I was a teenager and they’re still kickin’ strong. Here’s a super cute pic of my daddio in his Vancouver Grizzlies jersey. I love his grin.
The weekend was filled with schlepping kids around to dance class and soccer games, and then I met up with Lora for a long run on Sunday (she’s training for a race and needed to do her 20 miler). It was a busy and fun weekend!
Do you guys ever remember any of your really important big city teams playing the Vancouver Grizzlies when we had an NBA team?
We sucked so bad but they were such fun games to go to.
How often do you cut/colour your hair? How much does it cost?
