    Monday DH picked the kids up from DC so I was able to stop by Kmart to look for a couple things and finally get Father’s Day cards. When I got home the kids were playing in the puddles and once it started raining again I pulled them inside. DH BBQ’d steaks that were really good, he said I’m now the designated marinade-er so he liked them. L wouldn’t eat her dinner, not even her strawberries, and she kept saying she had to poop so I put her on the potty. Nothing came about and we went back to the table where she just complained some more. As I was rubbing her tummy I noticed she felt warm and sure enough she was 102.4. DH called the Peds office and we were able to get her in that night so L and I were out the door. We were the last to see the doctor and the people before us took forever, as in we waited for over an hour. Turns out she has a viral sore throat so nothing we can do. We headed home and had some cuddles before DH put her to bed. He stayed up until midnight to give her more Motrin and I set the alarm for 2:30 to check her and give medicine if needed. She wasn’t warm when I got up and I was hoping she had broken her fever.

    Both kids were up right before 6 so I checked L and gave her medicine since she was 99.5. We got ready for the day and DH took B to DC. L was in a good mood so once the kitchen was cleaned up we went for a walk. She got crabby part way through the walk and was in the 101’s when we got home. I cuddled her in our bed and we both took a nap. It was a perfect sun shining day and I enjoyed cuddling my girl while listening to the birds and looking out the window, so relaxing. We took about a 1.5 hour nap then were up playing. After lunch we read stories then L took a nap and I paid bills then chatted with my mom while sitting outside, I love being able to do that. DH came home early and I picked B up a little early which he was mad about, there’s no pleasing that kid right now. Once home we all went for a walk which DH skipped out on because he had to run back to work and then I dealt with a very miserable and clingy girl while I tried to make dinner. Once she saw B in the backyard playing with water she was OK with being outside though I had to sit out there with them. After dinner we had baths and then bed, she was out almost instantly. I got a run in and must be improving because I thought I knew where my 28 min mark would be and it turned out I was only at 25 min, it’s a good thing but didn’t feel like it when I realized I had more time to run than I expected. I did a little bit of weeding and then hung out with DH later than I intended. L was sweaty when DH moved her to the crib and her temps were good throughout the night.

    L was up at 5:45 so she hung out with me in the bathroom as I finished getting ready. We then cuddled before getting B up. Our morning was pretty easy and L was in the 100 range when she got up so I hope the fever is on its way out. DH is home with her today. I’m working through lunch and skipping out a little early to do some grocery shopping. Since the boss in on a 2.5 week vacay this will probably be the norm for awhile. My day is almost all meetings anyways so I may as well enjoy something. Tonight I’d like to run but if not I’ll get in a STEP or kickboxing workout. I also need to start cleaning the house, excitement!

    I got out of work a tad early and headed to the grocery store to get a few things including my case of bread, which by the way came to $3.89 each down from the shelf cost of $5.29. You cannot beat that. Once I had all my groceries I asked the cashiers how to pick up my bread and after their initial confusion they called back and went to get it for me. She first brought back the white bread and I ordered the multi-grain so I felt bad when she had to go back. Once that was taken care of I stood in line and everything was scanned through but my eggs and of course they didn’t have the code written on the box and no one could remember it so I held up the line big time. I felt bad but nothing I had control over. B was in a great mood when I picked him up and once home the kids played outside in a puddle while DH and I chatted. We had pizza for dinner and the kids played in the back yard while I cooked. I used the Daiya cheese on both pizzas so if there were leftovers DH could have them and B asked what was on his pizza. I told him it wasn’t cheese but was Daiya and the little terd ate it, stinker! L did OK with eating but she kept complaining about hurting, I hope the pain goes away soon for her. After dinner the kids played, I think they missed each other, and then went to bed. L fought sleep and I had to go in a couple times but overall it wasn’t too bad. I did some kickboxing then prepped for today and cleaned part of the house. L woke twice for DH and then twice for me, I know she’s hurting even though the fever is gone.

    Both kids were up at 6:10 and we got snuggles in then got dressed a little early so they could help me make a green monster. L didn’t eat much at breakfast but B chowed, he informed me that he loves pancakes. It helps when they’re packed full of blueberries (that pop in your mouth) and topped with peanut butter. It seems like it’s going to be a beautiful day and I hope to get outside and do some inventory work. I also want to get out a little early because I need to get the kids painting DH’s Father’s Day present plus we need to get the cards filled out. Maybe I’ll have them paint something for the grandpa’s also. Other than that I plan to run tonight and finish cleaning the house. Hopefully an early bed time will fall in there but I’m not counting on it.

    I was able to get out of work a little early and it was cold and became rainy before I got home with the kids. B was in a great mood and L was napping when I got there and was a bit on the crabby side. We think she had hand, foot and mouth because it apparently made its rounds at DC and she’s one of the last to get it. Maybe because she was on an antibiotic even though it is a virus? She has a couple spots on her hand that could be it but I think hers are mostly in her mouth and that’s why she’s been so miserable when eating. I asked if they wanted me to keep her home for Friday but they said since the fever’s gone there’s no need. Once home we got our painting shirts on and painted the canvas for DH, the kids had fun and I got frustrated with the paint lids because some I couldn’t open. They turned out really good and once the kids were cleaned up I hid them in the basement to dry. I called my mom to chat while I made dinner and DH wound up getting home around 7 so we were all fed and ready for bed once he got home. L only fussed a little bit before falling asleep so it was a move in the right direction. We put a puzzle together with B before he went to bed and then I did the Wii because it was raining pretty hard. I then cleaned the bathroom and prepped things for today before going to bed. It wasn’t as productive a night as I wanted but that’s OK I got to have some fun with the kids.

    Both kids woke up happy as clams today and L wasn’t whiny so I think she’s finally feeling better. We got a lot of cuddles in this morning and both kids were happy with cinnamon toast for breakfast. The big thing was the snow we woke up to, it wasn’t sticking at our house but it was coming down in big flakes. B asked if he could go play outside. I’m working through lunch so I can stop to get some groceries on my way home, three places to get all we need. We should have a nice relaxing weekend though I don’t think the weather will be too good. I am really sore today, kickboxing kicked my ***, so I’ll do yoga tonight then finish cleaning the house and go to bed early. I’m leaving our weekend plans up to DH and we were hoping to go for a hike but that may not work out. We can always go swimming, to the bouncy place, or even Arts on Fire to paint. That would be fun. No big chores to do so that’s awesome! On Sunday I’m making DH steak fingers for dinner and I’m going to make him homemade coconut ice cream, I hope it turns out!

    Friday afternoon with my boss ticked me off for the rest of the day and as much as I wanted to forget about it was just hard. Granted he came in this morning to makes sure things were OK and of course they are but I can only handle so much attitude at once. It made for my evening to be a bit of a downer but I did my best to make the best out of it. I stopped at a few places to pick up groceries and N called to say the BBQ was this weekend not next weekend, good thing I was picking everything up already. I picked the kids up then we met DH at home and B “mowed” with DH while L helped me in the house. Once the kids were in bed I finished cleaning, did yoga, made s’mores brownies, and was in bed shortly after 10, it was great.

    Saturday both kids were up at 6:15 and I was still sleepy so I dozed as best I could while they watched some TV. We then had eggs for breakfast and once we were ready to roll we headed to N’s garage sale to chat. She was OK with getting together even with L’s HFM so that was happy news. We ran to Target and then headed to the inflatables so the kids could burn energy, we did too running around after them. We then stopped at another grocery store before heading home for lunch. Both kids napped and I was exhausted so I napped for an hour and half before they cuddled with me on the chair. We then readied stuff for the BBQ and had our first double TO. B pushed L and she hit him so it was TO for both, I’m surprised we’re already at the “don’t touch me” stage. The BBQ was a lot of fun and the kids get along so well. The food was delicious and I got a little tuned then felt like the worst mom ever when L fell down the stairs. She was OK but it had to be scary. We didn’t get home until 10:30 and both kids were out immediately. I was exhausted and headed to bed myself. A new excitement is that L’s hair can all fit perfectly into two pigtails, she was so cute bopping around with her new hairdo.

    Sunday there was no sleeping in, both kids were up at 6:00 and I laid L back down and told B to lay down some more. I don’t think he slept at all because at 6:45 he was in our room saying he had to go potty and then I told him to just lay down on the couch to sleep more. Needless to say I saw him again and for the last time once L was up and yelling. We had a lazy morning but it was gorgeous outside so once the kids were dressed DH put them in the back yard and I got ready for the day. We went for a short walk and played outside until lunch. The kids then helped me make strawberry ice cream with coconut milk, they were pleased as punch. Both kids napped for almost 3 hours, I actually got bored! DH went for a motorcycle ride so I sat on the deck to read for a little bit then watched TV (while sitting on my butt) before L woke up. I snuggled with L on the chair and she fussed and shifted into an awkward position then slept for another 45 min, I did doze out a little bit with her. Once everyone was fully awake we had ice cream cones outside, played with water balloons, and played with the neighbors until it was time for dinner. Since I thought it was Father’s Day (yes I’m a goober and didn’t realize I was a week early until Saturday night) I made DH his requested General Tao’s chicken. B said he didn’t like it then he tried it and loved it, I wish that kid would give me some credit. The kids got baths while I cleaned up the kitchen and worked on laundry then it was straight to bed, still exhausted from the late night. I went for a run and thought it was going to kill me but I forced myself through it. I also did great with food and controlled my snacking so I hope this is a turnaround for me. At this point I want to drop about 7 pounds in two weeks so I can see the 130’s in time for my 31st birthday. This means I have to be focused 100% of the time.

    I woke up exhausted today and opted to skip Yoga. I’m not sure why I’m so tired but it is what it is. I had to wake both kids up at 6:15 because they were tired too, seems the family may need another early night. We had a great morning even though the kids were in moods to fight me on getting ready. Work has been fine though I need to buckle down and get started on my billing, fun! Tonight we’re having sloppy joe’s for dinner and I plan to run and do some arm workouts. Early to bed is also on my list, I hate feeling so zapped especially for no reason. I noticed L changed her vocabulary a bit she is not using I instead of me so she’s moving in the right direction. Granted her I should have been an I’m but it’s still improvement. It hit me this weekend that I no longer have a baby on my hands and I do miss it, I just can’t believe how fast my kids have grown.

    I ran to Michael’s on my way home to see if I could get more of the party things on my list. I did find the cupcake liners for L’s cake but not candy and I also got dye gel for the frosting. Can you believe some of that gel contains HFCS? Why?!? I then picked the kids up and L had her first official day upstairs in the 2-year old classroom. She was exhausted! I guess she fell asleep immediately on her mat and she was out of it when I picked her up, she was very proud of her big self. We met up with DH at home and played with some water balloons to cool down, it was hot outside. The neighbor kids came over after that and rode bikes while DH tired to coerce B to try riding his bike without the training wheels again. He said he was scared so DH showed him how he can put his feet down to stop the bike and balance himself, once he figured that out he was OK with pedaling while DH held on. The next thing I know he’s riding on his own up and down the street with DH chasing after him, I was so proud. We now just have to work on turns and he’ll have it down pat. I went inside to make sloppy joe’s for dinner and both kids loved it, not even a mess on either side so that was impressive. It was then PJ’s and bed for both. I prepped everything for the next day and then went for a run, it was hot out and I was struggling. I stopped and chatted with N on my way home then uploaded pics to FB, I had to show off my boy and L’s big girl pig tails before heading to bed.

    It was hard getting up this morning also so I skipped my yoga, I know I’m terrible. I’m hoping to stop by the party supply store on my way home to see if I can finish up the party list, I can’t believe they’re coming up so quickly. I’m passing on running tonight and will do STEP instead, other than that it should be a quiet night with a hopefully early bed time. I did great with food yesterday and did not snack beyond what I planned for the day, woot for being down in weight also. Now I only have 5.6 pounds to lose in two weeks, hitting the 130’s for my 31st birthday will be heaven. The hard part will be behaving B’s birthday weekend but if I force healthy meals all should be well.

    I stopped at the party supply store before heading home and got a few more party things, still not done though. I have to finish it up this weekend and just call it good. The kids had good days at school and since there was lightning we didn’t play outside. They were both tired and seemed content eating apples, drinking chocolate milk, and watching Dora. DH got home a little early so I made dinner and chatted a bit with my mom. DH had his naturopath appointment and he does need to stay dairy free for 3-6 months and then he can have dairy occasionally. This isn’t quite the news I was hoping for but it at least means when we eat out or visit people he can have dairy if he chooses. It’s interesting because his body response can be the same if he ingests dairy as if he were to ingest gluten. Since he’s reacting to it his body may start to attack itself and cause immune issues that could lead to things like cancer, that makes me more willing to keep him DF. He’s going to ask him about goat cheese and some supplements so hopefully he’ll have everything figured out soon. After dinner the kids took baths and DH left them for a couple minutes and L pooped in the tub, fantastic! He was so mad and took them both downstairs while I cleaned the tub. Once the kids were in bed I opted to not exercise because my leg kept hurting and instead made chocolate pudding, I didn’t eat any so I was a good girl. I did snack a little bit but nothing damaging. I was in bed shortly after 9 and still felt exhausted when my alarm went off this morning, so I skipped yoga.

    Both kids were up before I got in the shower, they at least played in their room for awhile and then stayed quiet so DH could sleep in. We had nice cuddles and breakfast was fruit and yogurt so they were happy campers. I have to stop by the grocery store on my way home and I’m trying a new chicken recipe so hopefully it turns out. I’ll run and gather the dairy containing freezer ingredients to pawn off on F at work, no point holding onto all that cheese and butter when I can’t use it. I will keep a little bit of the cheese for guests but most of it will go. Planning for another early night, I’m not sure where this exhaustion is coming from.

    It’s so nice when the boss is on vacation because I can work through lunch and sneak out a bit early, I need it with all the random shopping I’ve been doing for the birthday parties. I stopped at the grocery store on my way home and picked up a few items then got the kids. DH had the day off so he was there when we got home. It was a bit cold but not really raining, just lightly, so B rode his bike up and down the street a few times and seems to have mastered starting off on his own and using his pedals to stop. He was then done and headed inside, it was surprising. I started dinner once we were in and the kids played/fought until it was time to eat. B didn’t want to try the chicken but once he did he liked it, I hate how if it’s something new they are so reluctant. He shoveled it all down once he saw L got some pudding when she was done, I had to try the coconut chocolate pudding I made and it was good. Thick and creamy, I loved it and so did L. B said he likes the vanilla better, meaning the Jello chocolate/vanilla pudding, oh well. After dinner it was time to get ready for bed and both kids went down pretty easy, that’s always nice. I went for a run and my Ipod died about 2 blocks from the house so I have no idea how long I ran, I think it was probably only about 28 min. DH then went for a run and I was happy he did this, it’s been years. He used to run track and cross country in High School but stopped after he pulled something in his leg while water skiing with Jason and that always acted up when he’d run so he stopped. I hope it doesn’t come back because I think running again would be good for him. While he ran I did the Wii then tooled around the house before going to bed later than I should have.

    This morning I forced myself to do yoga. It felt great and I think my back needed it. I’m amazed at how much it’s done for my back and notice when I haven’t been getting my yoga in. B was up at 6 and L was up at 6:15, we had nice snuggles before getting ready for the day. I am working through lunch because the kids have their yearly checkups at 4:50. Thankfully no shots for either one. Since we’ll be getting home later than usual we’re doing leftovers for dinner so that will be easy. I need to clean the house and run tonight so a pretty normal evening.

    I’m trying to figure out what DH can and can’t have with this milk thing and he specifically has a milk protein allergy. So he apparently may be safe to use butter, I’ll still avoid it just in case, and it will be safe to use ghee. I’m going to pick some up to give it a try but I had no idea that because they’re both all fat the protein is removed. He can also try adding some goat’s milk/cheese in another 2 months so that will be interesting, I’m not even sure he likes it.

    My motivation is running low today and I’m feeling exhausted, the eye just want to close. I’ve had enough of this. I got out a little early and stopped at Target on my way home. I didn’t get everything on my list but I did get quite a few things done, like the remaining treats for the goody bags, decorations etc for L’s party, and popsicle moulds. I then ran home to get a snack because my yogurt was bad and picked the kids up. We got to the doctor’s office just in time and my hour was filled with paperwork, talk about pee (B was on a roll), and holding the cup for B to do his vision test. Fun! When we left we stopped by Food for Thought because I wanted to give the kids a GF treat but of course this is the one day they didn’t make anything GF so we walked out empty handed and I had to explain why we couldn’t get anything. Once home it was a rush to get the leftovers on the table and then into bed. I was exhausted and felt like I was dragging plus I was annoyed with DH. He told L to bonk me, like she was doing to him, and I got her forehead whacked into my nose. Thanks for the headache! I spent the evening cleaning the house, putting things away, and organizing our paperwork. The house is done, well the main floor anyways, so I don’t have to worry about that tonight. I went to bed later than I should have and skipped yoga this morning. DH did wake me at 10:45 to let me know he gave B motrin because he had a 99.8 temp. I needed the interruption of course.

    I was able to get dishes put away before the kids were up and we got in lots of snuggles, plus B is fine so it was a good morning. When we ate breakfast B told me that I hadn’t eaten yet because I was busy cuddling him. So sweet. I’m working through lunch again and will stop by Costco on my way home then pick up the kids. It seems like it’s going to be a beautiful day so hopefully we can get some outside play time in. I have my wine club at Plonk so I’ll have to get the pizza made a little early and get the kids and myself fed so I can be out the door in time. I’m going to limit myself to the flight and some cheese, got to watch those calories if I want to keep dropping the weight. I’ve done so well this week and would love to see 139 in a little over a week. I’m not sure when I’ll be home but I need to go straight to bed so I can hopefully catch up on sleep.

    This weekend I have quite a bit to do like weeding, DH’s books, filing, making muffins and granola bars (we’re all out of both), wrapping the Father’s Day & birthday presents, finishing the goody bags, cleaning up the basement so it’s ready for guests along with my dad and DH to drywall and put the rock around the fireplace, plus the normal laundry etc. We have a play group planned for the water park but I set it up late so I’m not sure anyone will make it and I would love to go for a hike on Father’s Day. Lots to do so this exhaustion needs to go away. I also need to focus on the fact that the more I get done this weekend the less I have to do this week. I’ll still be busy making the cake, cleaning, and doing the final touches but that’s a given. I am having DH pick up the last of B’s presents today, hopefully. He’s getting a sleeping bag and sleep mat we already have at the house but we still need to pick up a new fishing pole and a hunting Wii game DH thinks he’ll like. I figured the toy aspect will be covered by everyone else.

    I forgot to mention this but last weekend at M & N’s I told DH something I thought he already knew and was surprised to see him so put off by it, I’m glad he didn’t know it happened when it did. When we were at my 10 year reunion my ex (so embarrassed to say that because he’s a tool) said to me so are you glad you married him? First off what the hell kind of comment is that and second great job not growing up over the past 10 years. When I mentioned that he asked me that DH was pissed and took it personally though I told him to not because H is a douche bag. DH was so pissed that at the house he said he probably would have gotten into a fight with him over it, not typical behavior from DH that’s for sure. Also not worth the fight.

    I had a productive weekend and that makes Monday much easier to swallow. Friday I was planning to get out a little early to hit Costco and that didn’t happen so I just picked the kids up, stopped by the grocery store, then headed home. They played with the neighbors a little bit then I rounded them inside so I could get dinner made. DH was home in time to have pizza with us and I then headed out the door for my wine club. The bar wasn’t busy at all so we got a couch and had a great visit, it was so nice getting out for a little bit. Once home exhaustion really hit me so I went to bed.

    Saturday both kids were up at 6:30 so I dozed on the couch while they watched cartoons. We had breakfast and got ready for the day and I started laundry and packed the goody bags for both b-day parties. B and L were in the back yard and B hollered that L ruined the garden, sure enough she had pulled my cucumbers out of the mounds. This just put me into a funk and I was so upset, I just feel like my poor garden can’t catch a break this year and what little I had was destroyed. I locked myself in the bathroom and showered, I felt like a pouty teenager. DH left for work after I was finished getting ready and L wouldn’t apologize to me for the longest time, she didn’t get any attention either until she said sorry. We then went for a walk and B practiced riding in circles then it was home for lunch. I got both kids down for naps around 1 and they were BOTH sleeping at 3, woot! I texted L, she was the only person coming to the play group, and her little one was napping also so we decided to play it by ear. I used the time to work on laundry and clean the basement and get it set up for my parents. B was up shortly after 3 and L was up around 3:20. They didn’t forget we were planning to do the water park so we headed there and L joined us later on. They both had fun and B enjoyed A quite a bit. DH stopped by after work and once we were home DH BBQ’d burgers. The kids got baths then I did DH’s books, wrapped B’s b-day presents, and went to bed.

    Sunday we were all up at 6:15, including DH. He fell asleep on the couch and never came to bed so he woke when B got up. We all lounged in bed for a bit then the kids and I got up and DH slept a little longer. Once he was up I made breakfast burritos then we got ready for the day and headed to town. DH need some clothes from Target and then we stopped at Costco to stock up on fruit. Once home we went for a walk and B showed DH how he can ride in circles then it was lunch and nap time for the kids. DH played video games while I made zucchini muffins and granola bars before dozing a little on the chair. B was up around 4 so we cuddled for a bit and then L was up. I was surrounded by the two and loved getting such great cuddles. We then headed outside to play and I was able to call my dad to wish him happy Father’s Day and get the front flower beds weeded. DH had the kids pick up the garage and it looks fantastic. We then headed inside so I could make steak fingers and after dinner it was time for bed. We then saw that the Metra in Billings was hit by a tornado and the roof was gone, I thought DH was joking at first. I called my parents to let them know and they were preparing for the storm since it looked nasty. A storm then hit us, while tornados were on our mind, and it was the worst I’ve seen since moving here. Not as bad as an eastern Montana storm but plenty bad for this area. It was just pounding the house and the lightning and thunder were impressive then the hail (pea sized so nothing to worry about) hit and we just sat and watched the storm. B wasn’t scared and I was impressed with that. Once it passed I put B to bed and DH ran to town to make sure there wasn’t any damage at the store, I don’t think Bzmn got hit like we did. Parts of our street were flooded and that’s a first, thankfully none of it was in front of our house. I should have exercise but exhaustion got the better of me.

    I did get my yoga in this morning and we had a nice start to our day even though both kids didn’t want to get up. I’m stuffed up, I think it’s allergies since it’s been coming and going but I’m not happy about it. It doesn’t help me feel energetic and ready to take on the world. I plan to get out a little early today and I have my first CSA pickup, woot! I’m really excited to see what we get and the pickup is a little different this year so that will be interesting. I’ll then get the kids outside (if it’s not raining) so L can air out her bottom in the back yard. Her diaper rash is horrible and she’s in a lot of pain. Plus it will give me time to weed my garden before this weekend. I am determined to run tonight and I’ll probably do more laundry and water plants. Have to stay on top of the chores this week.

    L got her first poop treat this morning, I’m so proud and will have to praise the heck out of her tonight. DH said it wasn’t a lot but they sang the song, danced, and she got to pick a treat. Turns out she picked what B probably wanted the most (and without his encouragement) which was the 3 pack of squirt guns. B has been very excited for L’s potty treats and will sit with her giving her the toys and even giving her 2 M&M’s when she sits on the potty. He was telling her a couple weeks ago that when she needs help with the guns to just let me know and he’ll teach her. I really hope she catches on soon. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before but one sweet things she says, when things go “wrong”, is oh goodness. Cutest thing ever. This last weekend she’s started pointing and saying “Stop!” The attitude behind it is unbelievable and it’s earned her a TO already.

    I picked up my first CSA share and we got potatoes, mint, green onions, and radishes. I dried the mint last night and am excited to try baked radish chips. The kids both had a great day and DH was home when we got there. He was playing video games so he was worthless but he was there none the less. L needed to have her bottom aired out so we went to the back yard to play while I weeded my garden. I was at least happy to see a few carrots and some corn sprouting but my cucumbers are gone. I then saw the damage that was done to my rhubarb and it was terrible. Stalks were broken and they all have hail spots on them. I was so upset about this, emotional lately?, and then L dipped B’s baby in dirty water and that set me off. I was yelling and crying and annoyed that DH was NO help whatsoever, it was great. I harvested a bunch of the rhubarb and then DH came out to mow so now I had a pile of rhubarb and leaves in the yard and the pressure of DH coming with the mower. It was great. I pulled L into the house with me and split up the rhubarb to give to my neighbor and C and then I made dinner. Both kids ate well and then DH gave them baths. I was busy cleaning up the kitchen, getting clothes for the next day, and cut and froze the rhubarb I kept. Once the kids were in bed I went for a run and I really had to force myself to do it. I’ve been feeling sorry for myself lately and just feeling blah but I knew a run would make me feel better and it did. I think part of my problem is I don’t feel like DH has paid much attention to me lately and we haven’t done anything together recently. I’ll say something to him and I know I’ve been cranky lately but he hardly answers me or shows that he’s heard me. It’s frustrating. After my run I watched some TV while doing arm work, putting dishes and recycling away, and cutting up watermelon. I then went to bed.

    I skipped yoga this morning, so bad and the sleep I opted for instead wasn’t very good. I did get the dishes put away before waking the kids up so that was nice. We got lots of cuddles and then L sat on the potty for a bit, I know she does it just for the M&M’s, and then it was a rush to get them dressed, breakfast on the table, and me out the door. I’m working through lunch today because I have a hair appointment and then I’ll get the kids a little early so we can play. I need some play time with my loves and B said he wants to play hide and seek and be the seeker. Sounds like a plan to me. My evening will involve a run, dusting, laundry, and watering the plants. Not too bad at least.

    I was checking the registered sex offender list for our area and clicked on one of the level 3 violent & high risk offenders to find that I recognize the guy. It took me a little while to figure it out when and where. A few weeks ago when the kids were playing in mud puddles I had motioned for a car to slow down when he drove by and the guy flipped a u at the stop sign and drove up to me to say he wasn’t speeding. He was the guy! Creepy! I’m not pleased he was driving down my street and now I’m going to be even more paranoid.
