I haven't done a random post in a while and I have a lot to catch up on from the long weekend and the last few days so here it goes...
Last week, my very first week of summer vacation, I was sick as a dog. You name the symptom, I had it: vomiting, sore throat, body aches, headache, runny nose, cough, diarrhea... it was like I had four different viruses at once. No fun at all. By the weekend, I was still coughing quite a bit, but the other symptoms had subsided, so we headed down to my in-laws ranch. We had fun, despite not getting much sleep due to my coughing fits.
Our favorite part was hanging out with this little cutie:
She's our friends' baby, Stella, and this was during her favorite knock-down-the-cheerios-so-Mike-can-pick-it-up game. It was so stinking cute.
When we got home, our house was sparkling clean because my husband got me the most amazing end of the school year gift: the gift of a professional house cleaning. You see, I'm not so good at cleaning and I love nothing more than paying someone else to clean the house for me, so this was the perfect gift.
Even though the house was clean, it was kind of miserable because it was so terribly hot. Since we were away all weekend and didn't have the air conditioning on while we were gone, it was up to 85 degrees inside when we got home, and that was after the air had been running all morning for the cleaning lady.
To escape the heat, we decided to see a movie in a nice, air conditioned theater. Since we're too cheap to buy their over-priced popcorn and soda, we packed our dinner in my nice big purse.
We saw Super 8 and I really enjoyed it! I did have one big coughing fit in the middle of it, but I went out into the lobby and didn't miss anything too important.
Today I had big plans to get a car wash, mani/pedi, see my new OBGYN, do some shopping, and go to a Dodger game. I only accomplished two of those things, but there's always tomorrow! That's what is so great about summer vacation - no rush to get things done.
My new doctor is AMAZING. I will give more details in next week's Spearmint Baby post.
The Dodger game was really fun! My friend Roxanne took me as her date with our friends Laura and Scott who scored some amazing free seats.
Can't see us, but look at that stadium!
I'm on a terrible schedule of staying up way too late and sleeping in way too late, but I'm hoping a little camping next week will fix all of that.
I'd like to do a little informal reader survey! If you're reading, pretty please leave a comment telling me a little bit about yourself: are you single or married? Do you have kids or want them? Do you love dogs or prefer an animal-free house? Are you religious? Into politics? Like to knit? Please share! The more I know about you, my dear readers, the more I can tailor my posts to what interests you.
I look forward to hearing from you!
