It was our first full week of summer break! A nice, warm, bosomy thank-you hug to my opposite hair friend Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets who has most graciously hosted yet another Week in Review. <3
Oh, man…we’ve had such gorgeous weather here. It didn’t get above 30 degrees (about 84F) and no matter where we were there was always a breeze.
On Monday Andrew and I took Callum to the park by the dyke. He loves it there because he brings his trucks and sand toys and just plays beside us while we recline in our beach chairs. It gets fairly hot there but there was such a nice steady breeze so it was perfect!
It’s hard to fill up the days with things to do, especially things that everyone enjoys. It’s hard to find entertainment for both a 3 year old and a 15 year old. But, well, I bought paint. Freddy and Callum sat down together and painted up a storm. Can you guess whose paintings are whose?
Katie spent most of the week helping out at a local church camp for preschool kids. She’s an angel like that, however, she inherited some of my DNA because I was able to convince her to skip Friday and go to the lake instead. I took the kids and their friends to Cultus again and Callum made his own beach buddy.
One day while Katie was on angel duty, Freddy and Callum and I wasted hours of time and gas money driving out to the Apple store to return his earbuds that I got him for his birthday. They were $100! And this is the second time I’ve had to drive out there to return them! The right ear bud keeps crapping out. And then after all that they wouldn’t exchange them; I had to do it over the phone (a huge long process through UPS but whatever–it’s getting done). But we made the best of it and stopped by my parents’ house for a swim. Well, Katie and her cousin went swimming while Freddy and I visited my parents.
Have you guys seen the documentary, “What the Health?” OMG. If you love milk like I do, don’t watch it. I have to write a post just for this topic because I’m kinda freaking out about it. But anyway, I ordered a couple of cookbooks last week and I’m excited to get them and try out some new recipes! No, I’m not going vegan. I used to be all-or-nothing but I’ve swung back away from that mentality because it did me no good. I have to say though that I’m not going to be chugging a litre of (cow’s) milk every day anymore like I used to. BARF CITY. GAG ME WITH A TWELVE FOOT POLE. I made veggie “chicken” nuggets. I know, right? WHO AM I. More details in another post because this shit is getting long (TWSS).
Oh, speaking of vom, I made a green smoothie, chugged it, and then realized that I had obliterated a plastic bag and ingested the whole damn thing through my straw along with the spinach and cauli. Soooooo… I made myself throw up. I HAD TO. I got super anxious about it <—huge understatement and so I had to get it out of my body STAT. And so I did.
It was awful.
The weekend was pretty good. Callum had a couple of crappy night sleeps and ended up crashing on the futon under the front window right during the time that the gardeners were mulching and using chainsaws! That kid wakes up all night long but will sleep through that racket?! Incredible.
Have you ever eaten anything inedible?
Have you ever made yourself throw up?
Are you a heavy or light sleeper? What have you slept through?
