Well, time got away from me a little bit there, didn’t it? My sister and her family came to visit, arriving on the 2nd, and then my brother came down on the 5th. 7 adults and 7 children makes for a VERY busy house. I managed to take almost no pictures, big fat fail on my part. I did get this one of Kirsta reading to some of the kids:


It’s horribly backlit, but that’s all I’ve got! (Also, this photo is missing Caroline, Daniel, & Ethan.)

We celebrated Patrick’s birthday while they were here. He is the first of the cousins to turn 5! I made him this awesome dinosaur cake, complete with volcano and lava. He was suitably impressed. (If you look closely you can see the parasaurolophus being eaten by the allosaurus. Because no dinosaur cake is complete without some carnivore action, right?)




In other news, I’m back on weight watchers. I’ve tried the WW barcode scanner and it’s worthless. (Seriously, almost nothing I scanned was actually in the database.) They’ve also made some changes to the app that really annoy me. HOWEVER, I am by far the most successful at weight loss with WW, so here I am. It works for me.

Also, I joined a gym. Or rather, my mom signed me up for a gym. She’d been mentioning wanting to join a gym or sign up for a class or something and I kept telling her that I’d go with her if she wanted. (Let’s note here that I didn’t think it would actually happen.) Then one Saturday she came home and told me she’d signed us both up for gym memberships. We’ve been going 4 or 5 times a week (minus the week everyone was here) so that’s been great. I actually really like going. I keep forgetting they have a pool/hot tub/steam room though. One of these days I’m going to tell Brian I’m going to the gym and then I’m just going to go over there and sit in the hot tub. (Shhh. Don’t tell Brian.)

Will has pink eye. Woke up with it Monday morning and I have NO IDEA where he got it. But he’s been on antibiotic drops for more than 24 hours now and so far nobody else has it. *knock wood*

Daniel’s sleep schedule is all out of whack. Last night he was up basically from 3:30 to 5:30 for no apparent reason. As always, it’s super fun for me.

I’m currently reading like 5 books, and I have 3 more checked out from the library that I need to read so I can turn them back in. I can’t seem to focus on just one book at a time.

There, do you feel all caught up on my life now?

  1. Pink eye needs to DIE, DIE, DIE. I have it again (must have missed some eye makeup in the sweep after my the last time) and I can’t get rid of it! I haaaaaaate wearing my glasses instead of contacts.

  2. I think that’s the longest post you’ve ever written. And it’s like half as long as all if mine. Sounds like a fun kind of busy over there! Well, minus the pink eye and lack if sleep.

    • Ha! Definitely not the longest post I’ve ever written. Check my archives from when Kalena was a baby. I had LOTS more time to compose blog posts in my head when I was at work all day.
