We had a fabulous weekend out at the lake. Every one got more than enough sun, fun and lake time. I feel pretty good about myself. I got enough sun screen on the boys that neither one is very sun burned. There are some patches, but overall not to bad. Poor Bruiser, he had some troubles with the pollen and allergies, but we still had fun.
There was a lot of wind, and that made for some waves, but it was still fun.
Now for MMMM. Freebie week so here's what's been rolling around in my head:
4 Non Blondes with What's Up:
So, things are getting better around here. Nick is wearing real shoes again. The gout seems to be abaiting, waning, going away, getting better, how ever you want to say it. I'm doing a happy dance, it tough when the motivator is flat on his back and slowly going nuts watching to much Netflix.
Father's Day was really nice, Nick got to smoke a couple of chickens and we had his parents over for dinner.
All my guys. Love them so much, even when they are goofy idiots.
Now for MMMM: Theme this week is summer time:
Fresh Prince and Summertime:
So here we are at another Monday. This last weekend was a quiet one for us. We watched a friends itty bitty chihuahua. The boys were totally in love with him by the time he was picked up.
Nick kept his foot up and just tried to let it heal more. I did got yard saling and found a few things, but really there wasn't many to go see and I wasn't looking for anything specific.
We did get a couple of spectacular thunderstorms. Nick loves watching weather.
Hopefully next weekend we can be slightly more active. As long as Nick's foot continues to improve, we should be able to take a small road trip for Father's day. I can hope anyway.
MMMM this week is a freebie:
Dierks Bentley with It's Different for Girls:
Hello all! Or the few who still hit me up, I'm admittedly not the most dedicated blogger right now. but anyhow, here is some random for today:
So far our summer plans for the boys have been working out well. Turbo is doing his chores before getting lost in a video game haze. Bruiser has been having fun at Papa and Nana's house. Yes, it's only been a week, but I'm optimistic.
I've been exercising regularly. I think it's helping, but it's slow going. They say slow and steady is the way to go, so I'll keep at it.
The pollen has been ridiculous around here the last couple of days. We have a black car. Yesterday it was mostly yellow from the pollen. My sinuses hate me. Or the pollen. and the cottonwood trees are doing their thing and the cotton has started flying too. Joy.
I am doing better at the meal planning and the execution of said meal plans. As in i have been cooking dinner and getting most of the house to eat it. Bruiser is in a particularly picky stage with his eating right now. I swear the kid would live on chicken fingers and cheetos if I let him.
Now on to the Coffe Chat: “Summer Bucket List!!! You don’t want to have a cruel summer, so time to plan all the fun.”
Camping. Really looking forward to camping.
Lake time with the Kayaks.
Mountian time with the four wheelers.
Our annual summer road trip. This year we are headed to Durango, Colorado.
Some yard work.
Barbecues with friends.
Take time to enjoy the season.
That seems to be a good list. I'm looking forward to documenting our adventures this summer.
Join in on the random fun with Stacy.
OK, OK, so it's not that bad it's Monday, but I really could have used the sleep in time the weekend gives me. But over all it was a good weekend.
Saturday, Bruiser had a birthday party to attend in the neighborhood park. The weather cooperated beautifully with sunny skies and warm temps. Since the party utilized the splash pad, this was a good thing. Bruiser had a blast. I even got enopugh sun screen on him to prevent a sunburn--Go Me!
I accomplished the laundry, even the pesky towels. Everything is clean and mostly put away. I feel pretty good about that.
I also attacked the living room and rearranged the furniture. Rearranging the furniture is the best way to clean behind said furniture. I sucked up several dust dinosaurs and tons of crumbs. The living room looks pretty great and we now have room for a new chair. So shopping!
Nick's gout is reducing daily. Sunday evening, for the first time in a week, the swelling was down. It's still sensitive, but getting better.
And now for MMMM: this week is Opposites Attract, as in one song about rain, one song about sunshine, good time and bad times, etc. So, here goes:
