Colby had a great day at school yesterday! He threw up a lot but silly mom jinxed him by telling him he hadn’t thrown up much since his surgery! I sent tons of wash clothes today and three t-shirts so he should be good to go. I think his allergies are acting up because he’s pretty congested.
I had anticipated a relaxing day yesterday. Yes, I was doing school with Jahnna and Riley but it’s really not that much work. I planned on working on blog posts and getting the house cleaned up after 3 weeks of holding Colby and not getting much accomplished.
Sometimes I amaze myself with how badly I underestimate my plans! Aside from getting Colby out the door on time nothing else went as planned. We did get school done but not with Riley. Sure, she’s just doing preschool stuff but I want her to get used to learning and exploring not just watching T.V.. Didn’t happen. Oh well.
I spent most of the morning resizing pictures for my Rhodes Bake N Serve guest blog post. Then I conveniently remember 15 minutes before we were supposed to be there that Jahnna had a Dr. appointment. There went an hour and a half. We came home, realized we hadn’t been grocery shopping in two weeks and went to the store for a few things. Payday isn’t until next week so just a few things. Came home got that put away and then Colby came home. Throwing up. Got him settled without going to sleep which was a bonus since I had no nurse for him last night.
Realized it was 5:30 and I had no plans for dinner. Sigh. Threw together a fast casserole. Good thing I cooked up a ton of chicken a few weeks ago, shredded it and froze it in dinner sized packages. Maybe I am getting more organized. Not really but I can pretend!
Had a friend call and invite us for a dessert potluck at the park. John surprisingly agreed we should go. So we packed up the kids, gave Colby his bedtime meds, brought a blanket and a box of otter pops and headed back out. Colby slept for the hour and half the kids played. He was dehydrated from throwing up so it was a good thing for him to sleep. The kids played and the adults talked until it got dark. We headed home and agreed that we should do that more often. It was fun to get out of our routine.
So the freedom I was planning on turned out to be not so free, but that’s okay it ended up being a great day!
