Is anyone else limping through these last few weeks of school? Little man actually wore a pajama shirt to school last week and I think I sent my daughter to school with a banana and a bag of popcorn for lunch yesterday.
Not to mention Buddy is wreaking havoc all over the house again. We found out he has been peeing in the playroom (again) and once he does it once he thinks this is a totally socially acceptable spot to do his business (again). So we had the carpet cleaners come (again), only to have Buddy get some sort of weird doggy stomach virus and projectile vomit all night long all over the carpet (again). I have never seen a poor dog so sick, he even had to spend the day at the vet with an IV because he was so dehydrated, poor nugget.
Sigh, of course this all happened while the Mr. was traveling for work and I was supposed to be at a farm field trip with little man. Thankfully, my mom swooped in and helped out. Which was a good thing, because I was also viscously attacked by my rose bushes that same day. A huge thorn went right thru my gardening gloves and so deep into my index finger it took me 15 minutes to get out causing my finger to swell up enormously…like picture me having a bratwurst on the end of my hand for a week. Yeah, we are totally rocking it over here :)
Meanwhile. end of school activities keep rolling on and little man turns 4 at the end of next week. So, as usual, poor kid is getting a hastily thrown together party and I’ll probably take him to toys r us and let him pick out his toys and “unwrap” them by opening up the plastic bag when we get home and yell surprise! And he’ll feign shock and delight at the sight of the toy he picked out 5 minutes earlier. I’m sure this is a birthday memory he will cherish forever and ever…
So. what I’m saying as I gingerly type with my sausage fingers (hitting at least 2 keys every time I use my index finger) is here is my backyard this year.
The sunroom is done.
I love the way the shutters turned out.
I bought hanging baskets and threw them in my DIY planters.
That’s all I got. I’m fresh out of my attempts at witty commentary or interesting things to share. Just here are some hastily snapped pictures and stick a fork in me, I’m done :)
If you need me, I’ll be here, possibly glass of wine in hand…
and to all the other momma’s out there limping with me – good luck to you!
