Week in Review

Heyah! Make sure you don’t spill your slushy drinks on your phones/iPads while you’re reading this post, eh? I hope this finds you all relaxing in the sunshine somewhere, having a nice break from the regular grind of life. Thank you to my good friend Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets for hosting another Week in Review!

I’m trying to remember what we did all week because it was really busy! I wrote a bit about what we were up to in this post, but then we ended up doing a few more fun things last week too. Katie’s award ceremony was on the Tuesday, and then on the Wednesday I spent the day cleaning the house, scrubbing the walls, baseboards, cupboards and counter tops. It felt good to have them clean but my knees hurt SO MUCH later that day! I had my OBGYN appointment in the afternoon and she said that I’m measuring a couple of centimetres behind what I should measure for 30 weeks. At 30 weeks, the measurement between the bellybutton and the top of the uterus should be 30cm but I was 28cm. It’s how I measured in all of my pregnancies (except Freddy’s… but he was my biggest baby). She’s not worried, but she’s going to keep an eye on the growth to make sure all is good. She’s not concerned at all about the running and said I can keep it up.

On Thursday, I took Freddy and Callum, Jake and his girlfriend to Cultus Lake. It was Katie’s last day of school that day so she wasn’t able to come with us.

The boys are in the water behind Callum:

Then on Friday, I celebrated Katie’s first day of summer by taking her (and Callum of course) to Fort Langley for hot chocolate and cinnamon buns, and then to my parents’ house to go in their pool.

My kids went to Jason’s on Saturday and Andrew, Callum and I just laid low for the rest of the day. It was Canada Day, and we ended up driving across the line to El Nopal for Mexican food! The border line-ups were surprisingly short! We went to bed at 8:40 that night. Ha ha! Callum has been waking up SO EARLY lately and I’ve been so exhausted.

Sunday was a really fun day! I went for a run in the morning and then we grabbed some coffees and headed to the park but Callum was really super grumpy and didn’t want to play. So we put him back in the van and he fell asleep for an hour! We drove to Cultus Lake but the traffic was insane trying to get into the park area so we turned around and ended up at a little place we always go to on the dyke. Callum had his bucket, shovel and dump trucks so he played in the rocks while Andrew and I chilled on some beach chairs. I don’t have pictures, sorry!

I had a date with Rylee, the host of the Man Bun Run podcast at 5:30 Sunday night for a podcast “interview.” Andrew took Callum to his parents’ house so that I could have an uninterrupted conversation with Rylee, and it was so fun!!!! Our episode airs next Monday, July 10th. After that, Andrew picked me up and we went on a date out for dinner. It was SO NICE to be able to eat together and actually finish our sentences.

We had a really great week! School is officially out for everyone, and only a handful of weeks left before another little human joins the ranks!

Do you listen to podcasts? Why or why not? Which ones are your favourites?

I can’t listen to podcasts if I’m just sitting there–I need to be doing something else at the same time like driving or running.

Have you ever hurt yourself while cleaning? I was so nervous that I had screwed up my knees that day! Am I just getting old?

    I feel like I always hurt myself from cleaning. Its a good excuse to avoid it, right? But really, when I vacuum I know I use terrible posture and screw up my back.
    I like podcasts but only when Im running. And I only listen to running-related podcasts!

      OH YES! I forgot about vacuuming. That’s such a health hazard! So true! Ha ha!

    I’m glad you had a great week! Coming here on Canada day just seems so wrong! Why is Katie in school so late? When do kids go back to school in the fall? I don’t think I ever hurt myself cleaning but I have hurt myself doing other dumb day to day things for sure. You know I love podcasts and you know my favorite ones! I listen to them while running, driving, cleaning, organizing, and doing puzzles.

      Their first day of school is the first Tuesday of September!

  • Susie @ Suzlyfe July 4, 2017, 9:04 am

    Oo yay! I want to listen to you on another podcast!

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com July 4, 2017, 7:23 pm

      Ha ha! Well… I was pretty nervous, but Rylee did a great job of hosting!

  • Wendy@Taking the Long Way Home July 4, 2017, 12:51 pm

    Man Bun Podcast, huh? Sounds interesting!

    Love all those mountains in the background at the lake! Beautiful!

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com July 4, 2017, 7:22 pm

      I take our scenery for granted, I do.

  • Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeets July 5, 2017, 8:55 am

    Callum and Ave must be drinking the same water. She was up at 5:45 this morning. Ugh. Pool time and beach days help though. It’s a much more pleasant way to spend time than stuck inside in the cold that was winter.

    I need Mexican food now and maybe a margarita.

    I’d love to hear your podcast when it goes up.

    Man bun. Ha.

      It’s just not cool when they wake up in the fives. It’s gotta have a 6 in front of it otherwise nobody is happy!

    Oh, the lake and the pool. I am so jealous… it’s been so hot here.

    I like the idea of podcasts, but I get bored super-quickly and the only time I will listen to podcasts is on long runs. Otherwise, ain’t nobody got patience for that.
