Okay. So. My days off and this weekend went way too fast and here it is Monday night.
Saturday I took Sweetie Boy to see Transformers. It rocked! Okay, so the acting was subpar but the robots were totally awesome. Megatron was hot (just kidding).
Then we hung out at the house the rest of the evening and didn’t do much of anything.Â After we hit the movies, we went to Wal-Mart (I do so love Wal-Mart) and I got me a new George Foreman Grill. I think that thing! Got the Sweetie Boy a newÂ Ben 10Â toy, a six pack of beer, andÂ back at home I grilled hamburgers and made frenchÂ fries. There’s nothing better than homemade. I decided to have a beer with dinner.
Well, during the course of dinner,Â the baby boy asked me why I was drinking a beer. It’s rare I drink in front of him, but IÂ was really thirsty for it. I toldÂ him I justÂ wanted one… and then promptly spilled it across the day.
“Now look what you done!” he says.
It took all my strength not to bust out laughing at him. Instead I firmly reminded him I was the parent and he shouldn’t talk to me that way.
“Well, you spilled,” he says.
Can’t argue with logic like that I suppose.Â I don’tÂ know where he gets his mouthiness sometimes. ;)Â
Sunday he bugged me all day long to be on the computer so I just gave in and let him. I got the second round edits done on the book and also finished some painting projects. I decided to paint the air vents in each room so they would blend in with the walls. I have to say I really like them that way! It beats having this white eyesore above the doors.
Anyway, today was Day 1 of MusiCamp. It’s a little musical program at the church I’m thinking about attending. My boss goes there and it’s a very nice church with a great kids and youth program. I think it’d be good for him (and me) to go every Sunday we can. I’m waiting to see how he does this week. After today, though, it sounded like he really really liked it. He was excited because he got to play bells and shakers and learn sign language. I think that’s great.
I took him back to the office with me afterward and he played with Heatblaster (a Ben 10 toy) and kept asking to sit in my lap while I worked. That’s next to impossible. I packed up about 3:30 and headed out…and he crashed in the car.
I was okay with that. I’m after a Wii and I can’t find one anywhere of course. Best Good Friend called me at about 2:15 and told me a Gamestop in Euless had one, so I headed there when I left the office. By the time I got there are 4, it was sold. Figures. And of course they are going for an outrageous sum on eBay. I have some time, though. It’s going to be his big Christmas present. I headed home disappointed.
He slept until nearly 5:30 and it was all I could do to get him awake. And now he’s still awake wouldn’t you know.Â Asking me if it’s going to rain tonight (I guess he wants to be prepared in case it thunders and lightningsÂ later).Â I knew this was going to happen. I hope he goes to sleep soon, though…
And today I wore my very favorite BCBGirls four inch heels. I hadn’t realized I’d be walking to lunch with the boss and it nearly destroyed my feet. I think I’ve done something to my ankle because it hurts something awful. I guess tomorrow will be a “flats” day.
I’ve turnd in the cover art form and the blurb for NICE GIRLS DO so maybe I’ll have cover art soon for that book. I can’t wait to see what they come up with! 🙂
