I really meant to post a HAPPY BIRTHDAY LISSY blog-but didn't.. that or an actual Happy Bday to RI... I may still do some belated birthday tributes today if I feel spunky,or not. :)
Ri's older(somewhat estranged ) sis, left him a HUGE bday wish on the message board outside her work,knowing he would see it.. really sweet.
Its been a million degrees in the shade everyday...then storming every night.
I did take Rory an Noobs out a few times despite it. ..
I did laps with Noobs while Rory played hopscotch. We ended up leaving because people came(it was way too hot anyway)... one guy, who happened to recognze me from school and ask for a cig. I side stepped the trademark putnam county drama,and left.
Noobie has been my big butt baby tho-
Ri came home that night (tuesday) and made a veggie loaf- well sort of. More of a veg "meat"loaf.He took his moms meatloaf recipie, and replaced the meat with more of those unmeatballs.
Sleep has been odd and frayed. Still attempting to get the child ,and myself, up before 3 pm,and to bed before dawn- not being very sucessful though.
Also,Interestingly enough, I have found I am one of those odd people that gets insomnia FROM alcohol. (according to that article , it puts me to sleep for light sleep,but dehydration keeps me from reaching the deep sleep- seems like it the two nights after drinking I woke up and couldn't get BACk to sleep.)
It probably doesn't help that we mix rum and soda.
Ri has been working in the mornings,helping the owners clean up ,pulling weeds,sweeping decks, and moving fallen limbs-yesterday he went and ended up beng the only one,doing it all by himself :( ,coming home tired and sun burnt.He has been getting off at a decent hour from the On the plus side- he made up for the days he missed,and we are thinking
This child has been fusstacular. She has this new game of Doctor she plays with her littlest pets-she wants to play all day and gets really upset when I have to stop playing.She REALLY wants the LPS vet playset- we were saying we would get it for her for xmas/bday,but have been tempted to shell out the 20-30$ early,if only we had it to spare.This is her modified dr set.The wipe container is the exam table..she is a sort of scary doctor I must admit.She has also moved on to blood draws and pretend testing in the lab."a little shot,but it doesn't hurt!"
He did end up getting Wednesday off,he was going to work Wednesday morning,but they called and said no one else was going.We had plans to get up early an go to the springs-but as we had stayed up too late,and RI had brought home a handle of cap'n, we ended up getting up ,and out the door, very late.Ri was really glad he didn't have to work though.
We decided to go to the spring,because the nasty storms have kicked up yuck on the beaches here.
We packed up some sliced fruit ,and some left over veggie loaf,and got some subs on the way.Mmm veggieloaf subs.Rory at the whole bag of chips that came with our subs on the way though,so much or healthy lunch.
The spring was pretty rained out and COLD ,too.
It was so late that we ended up being by ourselves for awhile. When another family came Rory tried to get back in the water-but decied she was too sleepy and tooo cold.
We tried to keep her awake on the ride home blasting Hannah Montana music and promising a treat.
DON'T SING!...only Rory can sing along with HM!
Ri threw together a dinner:Corn on the cob, beans and peppers,seasoned taters and onions, cabbage and carrots,and blackened the last bit of veggieloaf.
.. we finished of the rum and played jeopardy- Rory took this pic that all too well captures my feelings.
Rory went to bed,and Ri went to bed-- and I discovered insomnia,and gross belly dehydrated hangover.
When Ri left for work Rory woke up and saw me awake- so she stayed up. In an effort to keep her awake at a normal hour,we walked the dog.
Well,once I could pry her from the tv.
This may be her fav bike. Ri DID bring home the BIG kid bike his mom got her,but Rory says she isn't big enough for it.(she doesn't like the way the training wheels make it feel unsteady)
I let her bike for a bit, then we brought the bike back and walked Noobie around the neighborhood
It was TOO hot, and we didn't stay out long
Rory ended up stomping home angrily , she was soo grumpy and tired... so ,yes.. she took a nap. I wasn't going to wake her. She was still fussy when she woke up, we both had a pretty grumpy night.
It stormed REALLY bad, the power went out for a few minutes,FREAkED Rory out.I made it much worse by using the phrase "the storm knocked out our power" -convincing her that she would fade out like tinkerbell ,because the storm had beat us up.
-- I had to explain electricity,and power lines to her.
When the power came back - I went online and found JUST our tiny little slice of town had a HUGE powerful hail/lightening storm on us. .. it was passing by the time I had access and found out tho.
Someone had shared this site with me, a game of getting dragon eggs and watching them grow-It seemed kinda silly BUT
I saw one I wanted to go with my sig... when Rory saw she said she NEEDED a pink egg!
She would name it Pinka and love it!!
Soooo... now, RORY has eggs LOL.
I figure it is somewhat educational-like a story, Rory LOVES reading about all the different dragons,and watching them hatch.
She was soo excited last night she was bouncing off the walls,because "pinka" hatched.
The more clicks the dragons/eggs get the more they grow- so click away folks:
I tossed lentils and rice together for dinner when Ri got home.Another night going to bed near dawn, another 3pm morning.Waking up with the kid climbing on me and Ri working.
I need to get dishes,laundry and some sort of meal together-but 1st I need to wash the kid- she hasn't had a proper bath in a while.
I never did call Lissy to tell her happy bday- I haven't actually got hold of her in DAYS. I guess she is moving out with Bo..which I thought she wouldn't ... seems ,so,odd. ..but thats how she rolls I guess.LOL .
Happy bday again lissy.
and happy bday Ri, love ya baby-
I do hope we get to go to that concert to celebrate your oldness,a little late.
and Ri's mom's bday is coming up the 31st- the same day as my dear freind tata
So happy bday Lynn, and Tata!!
