I Melt With You!

Plenty to remember, since I've been too lazy and/or sleepy to blog these days.

Thursday was Carter's 100th day of school. His shirt was, in my opinion, the coolest. But there was one boy wearing a fishing hat with 100 lures on it. That was very original and pretty cool too. I was super tired Thursday night; too tired to dye my hair, which was getting noticeably grayer.

So, somehow on Friday morning, I managed to get up before six and dye my hair, check my email, have a bath, shave my legs, have a shower, dry and iron my hair, put on my face, get the boys bathed, fed and dressed, picked up a coworker and got to work with a few minutes to spare.

It was a good day at the office; a pretty busy one for a Friday. When Chris got home I started making quesadillas for supper. I tried to make one for the boys with very little cheese so it wouldn't bother Cooper. I had talked to Mom and she called after supper to ask if we were still planning to go out for a visit. I'm not really sure if she really wanted to see us, or it was her ulterior motive (and ice cream craving) speaking...(kidding, Mom). We packed up the boys and headed to Safeway to pick up Mom's Haagen-Dazs ice cream. We picked up four movies at the video store and headed out.

First we watched Martian Child, (starring both John and Joan Cusack), which came recommended by my friend Beth. It was a sweet movie. Next we watched No Reservations with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Aaron Eckhardt. He was yummy in this movie, and with his hair the way it was, he was a bit Jon-Bon-Jovi-ish. A sweet, romantic movie. By this time it was nearly midnight, so we packed up our sleepy boys and headed home, since Chris had to work Saturday morning.

After Chris got home from work on Saturday, we bundled up the boys to play outside. It was finally nice enough out for the boys to go out and play! Things even started to melt a bit! I got ready to go out to a baby shower for a coworker. We all contributed to an office group gift, but I also made her a pretend gift certificate for baby announcements that I'll make for her. We all had a lovely visit and many delicious snacks.

I came home and the boys snacked on the leftovers I brought home. We started watching The Nanny Diaries, but we weren't in the mood for it and switched to The Game Plan. Carter fell asleep first, and I went to cuddle Cooper to sleep. We'd run out of soy milk and I was too tired to go out to the store, so I gave Cooper a bit of juice. He eventually went to sleep and I dozed off and on during the process.

This morning I had a crappy headache. The boys had each gotten me up a couple times in the night, and Chris graciously let me enjoy a bit more time trying to get back to sleep. I got up and dressed and put on my running shoes. I was planning for a fly-lady day. Chris did a Tim Horton's run before he left to go fishing. I shone the kitchen sink for starters, emptied and filled the dishwasher, FOUND the kitchen counter, (!!!) cleaned off the top of the TV stand (this was a project and a half!), and a few other minor projects, all the while chatting off and on with Jill. Jill gave me a gift certificate to buy these: (and I actually started a scrapbook page using them!) Thanks again Jill!
Chris came home from fishing and I did a run to McDonald's for a few burgers and fries. We sort of watched the Oscars and both boys fell asleep surprisingly early. So not surprisingly, Carter was up again just awhile ago. Now it's nearly eleven and he's up watching TV eating some cheese strings. We had a pretty fun day and now the weekend is just about done.

And just think...daylight savings time starts in just two weeks! The days are getting longer and spring will be here soon! Something to look forward to! Oh yeah and I changed my blog header again since St. Patty's Day is coming soon. Somewhere along the way I'll be digging out my Easter blog header too; since St. Patty's and Good Friday are only four days apart this year!

Hey there -- I love the blog header. Too cute!!

We tried watching NASCAR all day. . . they got rained out in California. But then there was a Law & Order (CI) marathon on Bravo -- so I watched that rather than the Oscars.

Got a little more scrapbooking done (the old-fashioned kind) and just enjoyed a sleepy day at home.

Miss talking with you....

Your comments are often above mine on several blogs, so... I thought I should come and read your blog and say "hello".

I was just reading the post on your adorable son's 100th day at school. I was a Reading Specialist for the kindergartens and 1st and 2nd grades in our district. 100th's day is so exciting for the kiddos and your shirt idea is one of the cleverest ideas I've seen. So give yourself some applause. You 'done good' mum!
