Evangeline and Noah and cheese kept us up most of the night. Evangeline was probably teething and fussed every 20 minutes or so. Noah came in and was complaining it was dark. Yeah, its supposed to be dark at 1 a.m. Alex ate cheese with dinner last night and his body was rejecting it. We don’t care for those kinds of nights.
I bought an exercise app today. I’ve been looking at it for a couple years but decided today that I will never find the perfect time so I just went for it. Lauren did the workout with me and she loved it. I’m glad. It’s more fun to workout with someone and she’s the type to keep me accountable.
I said to heck with school today. It was hot and sunny so I gave the kids popsicles and said go outside. I even joined them. I held Evangeline on the hammock and was enjoying our time until Noah pushed me and pushed me and now I’m pretty sure I won’t do very well on amusement park rides. I had a sick headache the rest of the day.
We went out and blew bubbles, too. Evangeline doesn’t really talk yet but she said “bubbles”. It was so cute. The kids were also playing in the neighbor’s sprinklers so I pulled our sprinkler out to save the neighbor’s automatic ones. They had fun. I’m sure I’ll find wet clothes puddled somewhere tomorrow.
After dinner we went back outside to blow more bubbles and we could hear a woodpecker pecking on a tree nearby. I’ve seen them busy in our backyard occasionally. They are fun to watch and listen to.
The kids have been begging us all day to take them to the soda shop. We finally acquiesced and took a walk as a family the half mile or so there. Alex and I walked, the kids, except the baby, rode their bikes. I’m sure everyone that drove past was counting: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 kids! It is a lot but it is fun. Most of the time.
I had a good day and I’m glad that I got to spend time with the family. The weather was perfect and I didn’t let the massive “to do” list bother me. I’ll let it stress me tomorrow.
