I said goodbye to Stephen this morning as he is on one of his weekly trips to Barrie but this time it turned into an overnight stay. Boo urns!!! I do not like this part of his job and am so thankful they hired a new guy so he can stop these trips. I was not prepared for this but I have been able to handle it before so I'll try again to stay strong today/night and Tuesday. I have lots of things to do today and errands to run so I know I'll be busy and like many suggested, I treat myself to a yummy dinner and a movie and maybe even a special treat. Now as for Tuesday, well I'm clueless, I cleaned today so the house is clean. Maybe I'll try some of these new pinterest recipes I have been pinning. I don't know. Maybe some sewing, knitting, or just being lazy. I guess I could also get the meal menu board going and make some plans for lunches for work.....since it's a week away from the big day!
I ended up getting up early this morning (7am) I figured I'd start waking up at 7am this week in preparation for going back to work next week so it doesn't knock my socks off having to get up early. The last few days I have been getting up at 8 and trying to stay awake all day, going out and running errands just so my body starts to adjust but I must say, come 2 or 3 o'clock I am ready to pull out my pillow for a snooze. I do hope with some adjustments this week I can adjust and perhaps the first week or two I'll have to take a quick nap when I get home. The only downfall to getting up so early is I'm up and ready to run my errands but nothing is open so I can't. I guess I can get some kitty snuggles in and enjoy my toast with my yummy homemade peach jam. It's a bit more like jellie but still good non the less. Maybe I'll go spend some time with the boys before it gets too hot out....oh the things I can do today. Now all I need to decide is what dinner and treat I want tonight! I really want perogies but we are going to perogie palace later this week to celebrate my new job so I must wait because I know nothing will compare to there homemade perogies and stuffed cabbage rolls....now I'm hungry...darnit. This toast is no longer satisfying my hunger.
Not much else is going on, with Stephen gone today/night I am going to print off some baseball pictures for his room and get some frames. My goal is to have everything I need so we can work on it the moment he leaves in a few weeks. Actually it's only two weeks away....wow it's almost August? Where has this year gone? I can remember when it was February and I was wanting it to be September (because I like fall weather) and now well, it's coming! Jacob's 1st Birthday and Ty's 2nd will be here before I know it. I have perfected Ty's birthday pumpkin cheesecake but I need to work on my carrot cake for Jacob since I've never made one before and you know it has to be perfect! I also have to think of what presents to get them....last year we got Ty a Noah's Ark boat toy (of course he'll share it with any future siblings) but this year he'd be two so we can get some more fun toys. I'd love to get a little bike or wagon but we have no outside storage and I don't want them stolen from the backyard. If our backyard was fenced it it'd be a different story (we'd have a fire pit, a pool, a patio set etc) but no we must wait until we move. I'm still tempted to buy a small kiddie pool for up here, the only thing is our deck gets full sun all day long and I can't put a huge shade umbrella up because we have the hydro wire hanging down and we don't want to get electrocuted. Don't worry, for the most part it's high enough so no one can touch it but we have to be careful about tall things.
Alright, I guess it is time for me to start my errands.....
