Ah, wonderful sunshine. I just sat on my deck for a bit and soaked in some rays while they lasted. It really helps the mood that’s for sure. Silas is still out there playing and singing. Sometimes when he’s out there he shouts “WEEEE” or “EIEIO” very loudly. I’m sure the people on the street think that’s rather funny. I do at least!
Silas’ fuse is about 1mm long right now. I just want this teething thing to be over. Poor kiddo. He pretty much has lost it by bed time. Last night he didn’t even eat his oatmeal which is very weird for him.
Brent and I stayed up WAY too late last night. Lost was on at a funny time and the hockey game went on for far too long. I’m glad we watched Lost and not the game because nothing happened in the game that entire hour. We didn’t stay up till the end which I was happy for because we would have watched another nothing period before the Canucks actually won. Oh and by the way, at least an appropriate person got voted off Idol last night, if Sanjaya isn’t gone next week though, I’m going to snap! And they did win, and that makes me happy. I slept like a log last night though, I had worked SO hard on cleaning my house. It’s very clean now, I just have a few odds and ends to do. There’s also a gigantic pile of laundry in the middle of our living room that needs to be folded. Brent had wonderful intentions of folding it last night but never got around to it because he didn’t feel like moving once he sat down. Poor guy. I over-did it with the cleaning though, I was in so much pain last night after I finally settled down. My hips hurt soooo bad. I’m happy to have a chiro appointment tomorrow, the sciatic problem that he’s been working on is mostly gone now though, it’s just bad hips with a lot of weight on them. I will definitely try for a nap today, I’m so tired. I’ve noticed I’m not nearly as tired as I was when all the family was out. I guess all the visiting was getting to me, it was well worth it though.
I had a major chocolate craving last night so I found a chocolate muffin recipe and I made it, with my own modifications of course. The bottoms came out dark and it made me sad but then Brent and I noticed that the dark bottoms tasted like burned marshmallows and we were stoked!
Anyway, the next couple of days might be dedicated to getting our tax things together. Brent was self employed for part of last year so I need to get all the books up to date for the tax dude, I’ve been dreading taxes for a looong time.
Silas just came up to me with his smushy and said “cuddle”…too cute, I need to go oblige him.
Brent and Silas were so cute this weekend, I had to snap some photos. There’s nothing cuter than Daddy and baby photos.
