Yesterday afternoon, I forced myself to get dressed, told Owen to get dressed and we packed up some snacks & drinks and headed to the park. We spent about half an hour at the park before the bus came, and we grabbed Fin & Maddie. Well, we chased them halfway home yelling their names before they heard us and we backtracked to the park.
They were pleasantly surprised by an afternoon at the park vs coming home to knock out chores. Total mom win. In reality, this momma was just STRUGGLING being cooped up in the house. Why not enjoy the weather before it changes again? Even thought it’s closer to the end of September, Colorado apparently thinks it’s still July. Highs hit 90 yesterday! That’s tied with a record from a cajillion years ago (I honestly just don’t remember. It was like 1993 or something, I could be way wrong though).
90 degress in September though is crazy for Colorado. Thankfully our weather seemed to get the hint… it’s supposed to drop later this week. (I’m talking 30s overnight this weekend)! We have good weekend plans though that now just include a fire in the fireplace! Score! I love a good fire in our fire place. David’s been doing a few here & there just to help imporve my moody blues over the past couple of weeks. (There’s been a lot of stress happening, guys…)
So, a nice park date seemed to do us all some good. The kids were SO excited. Dolores however gave me the stink eye as we WALKED past her. This is of course after Owen went to open the car door thinking we were driving. Poor Dolores. No wonder she’s upset. David took her to work today though, so that should boost her mood a bit. And the kids have dentist appointments later, so she’ll get driven more. (See here why Dolores the car is mad at me) (I’m also not sure how long I’ll actually refer to my car as “Dolores” so just deal…. K?! Thanks)
Day three of house arrest…. *sigh* I do actually have to get dressed and leave the house today (with David driving of course). I tried to convince him that I should just stay home & we both agreed that the kids would probably behave better if he were to go alone, but inevitably that poor man has no idea where he’s even going, so I get to go with…. Yay! (sarcasm)
My birthday present from David came in monday afternoon. A NEW CAMERA! Hooray!!! I’m obsessed with it. My big camera is 5 years (to me) old. It wasn’t a new model even when I ordered it. New camera has more Mega Pixels and zooming abilities than my old camera & phone combined. SO EXCITING! And it’s tiny, which is a big win for me since it’s easier to use than a giantly large one.
