Life has been so busy lately! I need to stop and smell the roses! Last week even though short, was filled with playdates, part time job work, full time job work, and fun! Friday my TCM job and I volunteered at the Second Harvest Foodshelf where we bundled over 15,000 pounds of frozen meat! Later on I picked up Kirra, and we went swimming in our pool. Friday night I finally was just at home, and it was wonderful to be home for once on a Friday night!
Later on we all took naps, and Kirra and I (after we woke up) went to 6pm church service, and then off to Jason’s parents for a visit. Kirra had fun jumping on the trampoline, and running in their 5 acre backyard! After we got back as I said above i went to Kristina’s house.
Well I am up in Duluth for the Grandma’s Marathon. I am here with co-workers to represent TCM at our expo booth we have up here. We (my co-workers and I) got here safe and sound yesterday about 5pm, and then we worked at the expo until 9pm. We went to Little Angies? For dinner a Mexican restaurant in Canal Park. It was pretty yummy, although now here at 4am, because I miss my tempurpedic mattress!
We don’t have to be at the expo today until 10am (so, 6 more hours) which will be nice. I’m having a feeling that coffee/caribou will be my best friend tomorrow!!!
I called home to let Jason know that I got here safe, and he said that Kirra had a fever, and isn’t feeling well at all. I wish I was at home to give her lots of hugs and kisses, and just rock her, and cuddle her. I’m coming back (well tonight) after the expo (friday) so I should be home around 11:30pm or so.
This Sunday we’re going to my parent’s house for a BBQ Lunch and some croquet! It should be a great time, providing the weather holds out for us. Wish me a good day tomorrow, and safe travels!!!
So today I went to Miss Allison’s dance recital. She was absolutely so cute. She did two numbers. I got to hold Gabby for a while on my lap and love her up. Jason decided to stay home with Kirra. Dance recitals isn’t his cup of tea, even though his favorite summer show is “So you Think You Can Dance”. I know Kirra wouldn’t have lasted for the THREE hour recital either…
WOW, Already? Both of these have happened so incredibly fast! Looking back to last year at this time I can hardly believe that Kirra didn’t even know how to crawl yet, and now she is walking/running, and talking up a storm! She is now repeating pretty much everything you say, so we have to put the Potty Mouth Patrol out! NO MORE SWEARING!!! We shouldn’t anyways, but now we need to be more careful for slip-ups.
Well it seems that we’re all healthy again! Hopefully now that will stay for a while. It’s been unusually cold this June so we haven’t even been able to enjoy our pool again! What a rip! Kirra doesn’t look for her fish anymore, so that’s good. She’s much more interested in her babies (i.e. her dolly’s).
Mr. Ish has died already. Kirra is too young to know if he’s gone or not, so I think this weekend I might make her a fish cut out of construction paper? Think I might be able to fool her? Poor thing. I hope she doesnt wake up tomorrow morning and go “ish” “Ish”. I’m sure she will, and my heart will break….
Well, now Kirra got me sick, and Jason! I was home from work yesterday, and Jason stayed home today. Grrr. Hopefully we’ll all feel better soon! This weekend I have an event with my part time job, and I will be getting my breaks re-done. (finally, they are WAY past due). I will post more later 🙂
