This past week went too fast. And I didn’t get to write as much as I would have liked (or at all, really). And then when I sat down to finally write, too many things were swirling in my head to concentrate on just one thing. So here is all of it. I’m embracing randomness today.
Fall! I can’t wait for fall. October is my favorite month of the year and it’s only partly because it’s my birthday month. Harper will be a skunk, just like Ellie was on her first Halloween. And we picked up Elliott’s costume this weekend and I’m excited to see her strut around the neighborhood as a kitty. She loves all things cats right now so it’s the perfect choice–and she picked it out all by herself. Meow.
A break from coupons. I’m glad it was a holiday weekend (thanks, Labor Day!) so I could get caught up on cutting coupons. I’ve been getting a little behind on the coupons-and-grocery-shopping thing lately and this weekend meant no new coupons. Whew.
Or, gymnastics, if you don’t speak Elliott Quinn. We picked up Ellie’s ruffly leotard (who else thinks that a funny word?) this week in preparation for her first gymnastics class today. I’m completely bummed that I’ll be at school when she goes. But I’ve got her outfit laid out for her and her little bag all packed. It’s going to be super-cute. And Chris better take four million pictures and send me text updates. I will be on edge from 10:30 to 11:30 just thinking about her adorable little self running and hopping around the gym. Yeaaa.
Chris Graham turned the big 2-8 this weekend. I was doing a little reminiscing about when I met that guy and how much he’s changed and grown. And what an absolute turd he was at twenty one. What was I thinking?! Geez.
Thirty-One. Well, this little adventure is going well. And it’s fun. And I got a free bag in the mail last week for being awesome.
Bags make me happy. Sigh.
Dragons. Ellie has a book entitled Milk and Cookies. There is a dragon in it and now she spends her days hunting dragons in our house. She has a pink sunglasses that she has to wear when hunting dragons and must use Chris’ giant, heavy mag light. This is a recipe for disaster, but half the time, I’m at work when this goes on and have no say in it. On a positive note, our house is dragon free finally. Relief.
We need food. Here is what my refrigerator looks like right now.
Chris informed me that he’s running out of options for Elliott’s lunches. I see spinach, Jell-O, cheese, apple cider, and coffee. I can come up with at least seven nutritious meals with those ingredients. Suck it up, mister. Lazy.
Bunk beds. Fall break will be “big kid bed” time in the Graham household. I’m already anxious to get bunk beds. Those are going to be fun. And now Chris will have a place to sleep the next time he complains I was sleeping in the middle of the bed. ha.ha.ha.
