Weekly update 8-27-10

Saturday- Such a busy day. Got up early and went out to a few garage sales with the kids. We found Corbin a few more things for school and Jax got a Lightning McQueen stuffed toy. Then back home so I could call my grandmother back to hear the latest drama with my cousin. Later the kids and I went out to lunch then to Wal-Mart for a few things. Jax got a late start to nap and it didn’t work well. But I did manage to go through Corbin’s closet and lay out her clothes for the week while he was down. Then we had a mostly quiet evening at home.

Sunday- Another busy day. Today we got up early to do a dress rehearsal of our new morning routine and it worked out great with time to spare. The rest of the day was catching up housework and a quick run to the library. Then after dinner Corbin and I did our nails and it was an early night to be well rested for the first day of school.

Monday- First day of school for Corbin. I really hope 4th grade goes well. We had a good morning and were all ready with time to spare. Dropped Corbin at school, then Jax and I went to the Y. He had fun at child watch and I had a nice workout. Came home did some chores and got ready for work.

Tuesday- Another smooth morning and Jax was so excited to go play at the Y again. Ordinary day at work.

Wednesday- Today I had to pull a day shift at work, so Corbin and I got up and ready while leaving Jax and Dad at home sleeping.

Thursday- Back to the Y. Pretty quiet day.

Friday- Jax and I had a long morning at the Y, because after my workout we went swimming. Then it was home for lunch and a nap, followed by a simple night at home.

8-21-10 Weekly update

With school starting back up next week, I thought I would start getting in the habit of a weekly update here. So I will try to report on something daily and post it all on Saturday, unless we manage to have a big day that calls for it’s own post.

Saturday - I was woke about 15 minutes before my alarm was set to go off by Jax fussing in his room, which was odd because since we took a side off his crib (waiting for TJ to be ready to set up the toddler bed) he plays happily in there till I get up. Got up to see what his issue was and open the door to him complaining and waving his hands around while standing in the middle of the room. So I ask him what’s wrong and he points to his crib where one corner of his mattress is lower then the rest of it. He had removed a bolt which I then discovered he had in his mouth. Lord, help me this kid will choke himself at some point, I just know it. So while the kids ate breakfast Jax was all worried over Dad messing in his room tearing down the crib and setting up his bed. But all is well now and he is happy to go climb in and take his nap and to go to sleep at night. My little man is getting so big now.

Sunday- It was a quiet morning at home. But work was insane, I ran my butt off dealing with one issue after another and by the end of the night both knees and my bad ankle were aching. Hope the rest of the week goes smoother.

Monday- I was feeling so stiff and sore from Sunday, I ended up calling in sick to work and having a nice quiet day at home.

Tuesday- Ok another Jax funny. Today he knocked over a kitchen chair so I ran in to ask him if he was ok and he is all upset and yelling his babble while pointing at the chair. So I say “yes you tipped the chair over but are you alright?” and he keeps on complaining. Finally I fix the chair upright and he stops, gives me a hug and says “OK”. LoL he is always more concerned about things then himself.

Wednesday- Just another simple workday around here. We really are boring. But I’ll do these weekly’s and maybe I can get on a roll and blog more interesting stuff once I adjust.

Thursday- Today was open house at Corbin’s school, but we didn’t really get much face time with her teacher. But I think she seems to have a similar personality to her last two teachers and they both were awesome with her, so for now I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

Friday- This morning Jax and I went to a WIC appointment. He has the ladies in that office charmed. He tends to be quiet in public and just smiles so sweet when someone talks to him, so they all think he is an angel. Then this afternoon it was time to go get Corbin’s hair trimmed for school, then we all went out for Chinese for dinner. Came home and caught up on AGT with some popcorn then everyone headed off to bed.
