A weekly post about us, what we've been up and pictures
to fill in the blanks.
(Saturday Share tends be a fairly long post...sit back and enjoy)
Last weekend we launched the rocket again. This time it went at least a mile or more North, over the railroad tracks and beyond. We were able to track it a bit more easily then the previous launch. We almost declared the rocket: G-O-N-E but the awesome parents we are, we threw the boys in the van and drove over to the road where we thought we might find it. And as luck would have it, it was laying smack dab in a big old field. Mommy...that's me...jumped outta the van and RAN to it. Screams and happy shouting erupted from the van when I reached the rocket and gave the thumbs up to my boys.
Successful launch #2.
Will the 3rd launch do us in?!?
Saturday night found Darren and I out on a date.
Yea for date nights!!It actually "classified" as a date too because we didn't do anything for the boys, we didn't buy anything for the boys, etc. That's so hard for us...to go out alone and not still focus on the boys. It was a night for us. We had a totally casual dinner and beer and then watched and became crazy cheering fans at a lacrosse game.
Kenny stopped by as you may already know....here's another shot of him in case you missed it last week on Sundays In My City post. I circled him in red so you wouldn't get lost in the awesomeness that is my husbands extreme close up.
Monday night I had to take Charlie (one of our dogs) to the vet for a heart worm test.
In wasn't long before I remembered that he doesn't like riding in the van. The smell of the contents from his emptied stomach drifted through the van. Barf and Crap. Can we say "GAG!!"
Positive take on this adventure: Charlie checked out A-ok!!
Reason to never take this adventure again: He barfed 3 more times ON THE WAY HOME as well. Yea.
Jacek and Aidan are doing great. We went out and spent some quality time in the back yard on Thursday. I found myself just staring at them. Jacek has a power wheels jeep and what a big brother he was yesterday helping Aidan in and out, buckling him up and even offering to let him drive. That made me so proud. Aidan switched seats with his big brother but didn't know what to do. So, Jacek both stepped on the peddle AND steered from the passenger side but still was adamant that AIDAN WAS DRIVING.
Aidan climbed the play set all by himself. Last year at this time he wasn't even walking yet. He also slid down the slide.....well backwards and on his belly but he did it all by himself. Three times! Go Gooberbutt!!
Jacek loves green beans.
Aidan does not.
Aidan loves potato pieces.
Jacek does not.
I'm trying to think what's new with Darren. I think it's about time he does another guest post, don't you????
He has to work on Monday which I think is stupid. He should not work. He should stay home.
He has been really great supporting me with all my medical concerns and issues. He tells me I can do anything and I
almost believe him.
He's a pretty awesome husband.
I am so much better then I was last week. The doctors appointment was scary but eye opening at the same time. The doctor had no second thoughts in diagnosing me with hypertension. The readings of my blood pressure were lower then at the dentist but still way above what normal anxiety should cause. Over time my heart will weaken due to all these inconsistent readings. My body can't regulate it. Medicine can help.
I am 32 and on high blood pressure medicine.
I am okay with that.
but I'm working on being okay with having to take it for the
REST OF MY LIFE.
That's the part that kinda kills me mentally.
but I get IT now. I get it.
So yea. I'm hopefully on the right track.
The boys and I went down to Hamlin Beach today (Lake Ontario). My parents live really close so we stopped by and picked up my Mom/Grandma.
It was Aidan's first time seeing the lake.
He was amazed.
It was Jacek's first time really getting the idea of LAKE and
how big it is.
And that is the news on us.
Thanks for stopping by. Please leave me a comment.
If you have NEVER EVER EVER left me a comment let today be the first.
If you don't leave me a comment then I won't know you were here. (Is that what you were hoping for?)
Let today be the day you de-lurk yourself.
I will love you for it....4-ever
