Oh yeah, that’s why I never do this

Oh yeah, that’s why I never do this

***I originally wrote this several months ago. Probably before Christmas. Can’t remember. I found it in my saved posts so I thought I’d post it.

I was expecting to stay home for most of the day since I was scheduled to babysit for a friend of mine. We swap babysitting. She watches my son on Wednesday mornings when I’m at BSF and I watch her son on Thursday mornings while she works. Good deal.

This morning she texted me at 9am to say that he was sick and she was going to take him to work with her so he didn’t infect our family. Of course we’re already sick and he very likely got sick from the same source. But anyway, I found myself free. I also have the car today as Handsome is out of town for the day at some software training thingy. I halfway considered just staying home because the girls were playing soooo well and Little Boy was having a really great morning nap. I called my mom to see what she was doing because I knew that she was planning on going to Costco probably today or tomorrow. Turns out she wouldn’t be free until at least 11am.

I let Little Boy sleep, the girls played happily, we did a bit of school work. I thought, you know, the kids are doing great. I think we can manage to go out. Little Boy awoke about 10:30, I fed him some morning tea, the girls got their shoes on, I packed up our bag, making sure I had everything I needed like extra snacks, nappies, a cup of water for the boy. I had my checkbook, had my Costco card. We’re ready to go.

Got to Costco about 11:30, got everyone strapped in or holding hands and away we went, happy family off to buy big boxes of food.

What I should have done was stay home. I should have enjoyed the leisurely morning that we were having and not thought about interrupting it. But interrupt it is what we did!

Normally my stories tell a lot of tales about the two girls because, well, they create a lot of fodder for stories. But this story is all about my son, who is growing out of the baby stage and into early, early non-baby stage. I wouldn’t call him a toddler yet, but he’s certainly learning how to not be a baby.

… and that’s the end! What do you think he did that day? I certainly don’t remember! Probably good for me to remember that, no matter how bad the day might seem, I’ll forget eventually :)

friend with a chicken farm

Would my friend with the egg farm please email me because I have lost your email address. It had something to do with the computer overhaul a few weeks ago and now it’s gone. I tried remembering it but I obviously don’t remember well.

House Hunt update

We decided not to make an offer on that other house; HOWEVER, we have put in an offer on a different house. We’re still waiting (waiting, waiting!) to hear. They have until 5pm tomorrow to get back to us.

In the meantime, I’ve been busy reading all Martha has to offer :) I’ve never been a decorating kind of person, but we’ve always rented. Something about owning our own home that we actually think we’ll live in for several years makes a huge difference.

When we do move again it will be our eighth move in eight years. And it will be, by far, the largest house we’ve ever lived in. Our one couch will look very lonely :) But lonely is good. Better than being in debt just to have more furniture!
