Hi everybody! I’m linking up with Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets for this week’s Week in Review!
What a full week! I pretty much lost my sexy husband to the insanity that is the real estate market.
When he IS home, he’s on his phone. I run around and do my best to support him but he’s the only one that has the magic. I’m like Tommy Boy trying to sell brake pads. He’s like, well, like Andrew selling houses. He’s good. I’m not.
I was beginning to feel bad for him, you know, as each morning he’d try so hard to choke down my home brew. I love making coffee with freshly ground beans in my French press, but it ends up to be a little more solid than he’d like. The final straw dropped when I saw him take a sip and chew it. So, I caved and went out and got our family a Keurig.
So while Andrew did his thing, I did the Mom thing. I slothed around in my pajamas, sipped organic green tea lattés, and watched endless episodes of Ellen.
No. I didn’t.
I did the regular stuff of doctor appointments, teacher meetings, rugby games, dance practice, soccer games, laundry, dinners, lunches, brought the cat in for her spay, kept her alive (she scared me for a day or two but she’s okay now), things like that.
When Jake and I went into Vancouver on Monday night we popped into this cool store that sold crazy socks so I picked up an appropriate pair for Andrew to wear while he runs around like mad:
This is what rugby season looks like around here:
We are working on the iPhone addiction to Thomas videos, slowly but surely, but a lot more slowly than surely. (Notice the choo choo jammies)
Callum was ecstatic with our Walmart finds!
So he must have felt inspired to share one of his Thomas videos on MY FACEBOOK TIMELINE.
Our bi-weekly Costco trip scored us some pervy produce.
To celebrate Brandy’s last night as a fertile woman, I gave her a boudoir photography shoot. She was a bit nervous at first but the beer helped and she began to relax right into it. Although a cat’s ears always tell the truth.
The best part of my week was on Saturday, when I was able to wake up, have some coffee and go for a short run and then? I dropped Callum off at Grandpa and Grandma Slane’s so I could take off for a few hours to watch Kylah’s soccer game! I can’t tell you how much fun it was for me to drive over to my old city where I grew up and watch Kylah play on my home pitch. Back then it was a gravel field filled with soupy patches of rainwater and now it’s this beautiful turf surrounded by covered team benches and grandstands. And I could actually watch her play without having to chase Callum around.
She got MVP for the game. So great!
This was me at Kylah’s age.
And to cap it all off for the week, I got a text from a friend of mine who works at the insurance place a block down from where we live. She said while she was locking up, she heard Jake and his two buddies open the door to the salon next to her and ask the lady there if they wax pubes. We had a laugh, and then I played with Jake’s mind a bit, of course.
Jake is going on a motorbike trip with his Opa down to California for a week and a half or so. Situations like these help me not miss him so much. Or do they make me miss him more?
Did you ever wonder how your mom would just KNOW stuff?
Drove me crazy.
Cats ears always tell the truth. What position would yours be in right now if you were a cat?
Screw the other questions. Please tell me where I should buy Keurig pod thingies. I live in Canada, but it’s just a short drive across the border.
