This past weekend was a very relaxing one, thankfully! Friday we just ordered pizza & hung out & caught up on taped shows like we normally do.
Saturday morning Reese woke up fever-free! Hallelujah! She was still a little cranky, but at least on the path to feeling better. We wanted to get out of the house, but it's way too hot outside & we didn't want to venture too far, so we headed to the mall.
We had lunch at BJ's Brewhouse & then Cam got to jump on the trampoline for the first time ever! He had such a blast!
He would have stayed on that thing for hours if they let him.
Speaking of Cam, I know I mentioned in this post that we're trying to get him to keep his stinkin butt in bed at night, but it isn't going very well. Out of 7 nights, he probably stays in bed without getting up at all about 1-2 times. Once he falls asleep, he stays still until morning.
I just don't know what he's thinking... it's like he just will not let himself stay put. The other night I was on my own while Mike played poker & he was so close to just letting himself fall asleep when I watched temptation win as he slinked out. When I told him that he was no longer eligible for his prize, all hell broke loose & he cried & cried.
I told him, sorry pal, but you knew the rules! Yep, I'm tough like that. It was funny & sad at the same time as I watched him on his monitor while he knelt in bed repeating & crying over & over, "But Mommy, I want a prize!"
I couldn't handle watching him anymore so I stepped in & calmed him down. The next morning as he sat on the couch he told me, "Mommy, I just cried & cried & then I fell asleep!" What a goofball. I just don't know what I'm going to do with that kid!
After the kids went to bed on Saturday night, we decided to make a homemade pasta dinner; sauce, noodles & all. We'd never made our own pasta & don't have a pasta machine to roll it out so ours was very rustic! It came out a bit chewy, so we'll have to tweak the technique next time! The sauce was quick & delicious though & I highly recommend it. Click here to check it out!
And Sunday was church & hanging out with friends over lunch & dinner at our house. Very relaxing! Amazingly enough, both kids napped for about two hours at the same time so the adults were able to converse without interruption!
Tonight I'm a little irritated & impatient because I'm so tired of the never ending to-do list. As I folded the millionth load of laundry this weekend, I joked with Mike & Cam that I'm retiring from washing their clothes! And here I am, typing away, hearing the annoying call of the just-stopped dryer. Sometimes I wish I could live in Mike's world where things like undone laundry didn't bother me. What a peaceful world that would be!
Anyway, I've rambled enough for one night. Also, can't forget about the laundry that's calling my name! I hope you all had a great weekend too!
