This week I’m drowning in the middle of shark week.
The screeching is going to drive me mad. Why do kids have to screech so much?
And? Why can’t they just flush the damn toilet? Gross.
I stupidly made the decision to stay up until 2 am the other night, to finish up a few things I had on the go. Even though I had an adequate amount of sleep last night, I’m still recovering from the 2 am late night marathon getting-stuff-done-session.
The whining. Oh, that fantastic stage of being a two year old where everything makes this kid whine and scream at the top of her lungs, making me wish that she would lose her voice, just for an hour or two because sweet silence.
Last night I made pulled pork for dinner. Five o’clock came and it was nowhere near as ‘pull apart’ as it should have been. I called Jamie, he picked up Violet then picked up Dairy Queen, I nearly dozed off twelve times reading books with Olivia while he went to pick it up with Violet.
And halloween candy with me in the afternoon.
And sugar cereal this morning.
There’s no kindergarten today.
She’s been up since six am, telling her sister to wake up or she was going to miss the sunrise. It was adorable that she wanted her little sister to experience it with her, but Violet didn’t go to sleep until almost midnight, so I laid back down with Violet and slept until eight.
Olivia’s max hyper today. I should have made ‘real’ breakfast this morning.
She doesn’t want to trade her halloween candy for a new toy.
I’ve just washed the same load of laundry for the fourth time.
Our thermostat keeps glitching out. This morning it turned itself to ‘cool’ and it was 63 degrees in here. Second time it’s happened in the last few weeks. Change the batteries? Where even are the batteries? What types of batteries do I need?!
And about 80 emails to respond to. But responding to emails means more emails, and means more things added to the to do list… so … there’s that.
We just ran out of dish soap. Why did I not order dish soap when I ordered toothpaste from Walmart. Does Costco even sell dish soap? I guess I should add it to the list.
I’m still not sure where I stand on the flu shot but I lean more towards, hand washing, eating a nutrient rich diet is just as good. Should I make the appointments? If only I had more time to get more information to choose a valid side. For now, I’ll stay on the fence with my hippie un-flu-vaccinated kids.
I joked with Jamie that I felt like I was a drowning during Shark week, and as always, he reminded me to look on the bright side.
At least we don’t need to grocery shop, because our Spud.ca order is going to arrive this evening. This week, as a splurge, I added a pre-made macaroni and cheese that I had heard great things about, for the sake of an easy dinner.
I also added chips, and special root beer for a ‘when the kids go to bed adult snack’ so we can enjoy a movie night together.
Chicken pot pie from Costco. That’s a positive. One of my favorite comfort foods is on the menu plan this week.
And at least the pulled pork that was finally finished at 9:40 last night will be easily frozen for pulled pork mac and cheese, and for dinner tonight.
Plus, there’s pretzel buns.
ps: don’t judge me that a big portion of my bright sides are about food. I lurve the food.
While the kids were outside playing with the un-toys for fifteen minutes of silence, our neighbor who terrified Olivia when he wore a Dr. Pepper Bodysuit costume, told her he was going to wear it again for her. She was not impressed. It was hilarious.
I have great skin.
Olivia was so excited for Violet to wake up with her this morning to watch the sunrise. Though the kids are insane at time, they have such a close relationship.
At least a squirrel didn’t crawl up my toilet. swim?
We were gifted a heated blanket. It’s got a pocket. For your hands? I don’t know what it’s for really, but I’m assuming hands – because you never know where you’re going to put them when you’re sleeping, right?
My stash of chocolate covered coffee beans and dark mint chocolate.
Violet is hilarious. Straight up, makes me laugh hilarious.
Olivia is almost reading. And she loves books. The pride! I feel like I need a that’s my kid guys! sticker. or a sign. Loving books makes my heart happy.

Last night, Violet fell asleep in our bed and was sleeping closer to Jamie. She peed, and the pee pooled to him because of the mattress pad and he’s bigger than her. Thankful that wasn’t me.
Superhero camp next week and she’s going to have so much fun.
Putting Violet to sleep last night, her last request before she fell asleep was to hold hands. Oh my heart.
And Looking on the bright side, shark week doesn’t seem as bloody as I originally thought.
