Week In Review: August 16, 2009 - August 22, 2009

Here is this weeks Week In Review for August 16 - August 22, 2009

Sunday: Another lazy Sunday. Watched my soaps and played on the computer. I cooked a nice dinner and washed dishes. Gave CJ a bath and put him to bed. Let the girls stay up a little while and then sent them to bed. Starting to send them to bed earlier and earlier as school will be starting up soon. I took a shower and went to bed.

Monday: Got up thinking why did summer wait so long to get here. It's been hot and humid. I took it easy in the morning. Joe went out to fill out some applications. When he came home we had lunch. I took the girls to the library. Natalie had won a harmonica so we picked up her prize and some more books. Came home and watched Joe fix the girls bikes. They wanted to ride, but their shoes were in their room and their brother was napping. They tried to go in quietly to get them, but he woke up. So we went to the grocery store. Got a few necessities and then came home. I researched some different companies we could use for phone and internet. Ended up ordering a different service. Someone came over to purchase one of our air conditioners. After that we came in for dinner. Then Joe got out the water guns and we went into the yard to spray the kids. Our landlords kids were out there too and ended up getting in on it. Except they were going after me. Even though I wasn't spraying them. So I got soaked too. I surrendered (I didn't really want to get wet in the first place) and came in. Joe brought CJ up and we changed him for bed. Called the girls in who were not happy. It was getting late and the bugs were biting. So they came up and pealed their wet clothes off in the shower. While they were in there I told them to shower. So they did. We put CJ to bed and they stayed up reading and playing video games for a little while. Sent them to bed and Joe and I watched some TV before going to bed.

Tuesday: Got up early again even though I didn't have to. Took it easy in the morning. Checking e-mail, fed the kids, got some stuff together to meet with my PTA officers. Gave CJ lunch and put him down for a nap. Then me and the girls went to the school to meet with the principal and vice principal about the upcoming year. Joe stayed home with CJ. Had a nice lunch meeting at the school. Before we left we got the girls teacher assignments for this year. Natalie's teacher is Mrs. Hurlbert who she's very excited to have. And Kaitlyn's teacher is Mrs. Nazare who she's also very excited to have. We left the school and came home. Hung out with Joe for a little while before he had to go to work. He left and CJ got up from his nap. I made dinner for the kids. Took it easy. Put CJ to bed and let the girls stay up to wait for daddy. Shortly after he came home the girls went to bed. Joe and I watched TV and then went to bed.

Wednesday: I got up with Joe when he went to work in the morning. CJ was up shortly after that in a really good mood too. He was a lot of fun actually. The girls finally crawled out of bed and I fed everyone breakfast and we just vegged all day. Joe ended up working overtime. It was so hot in the house that we decided to order chinese take out for dinner. That came and we ate. I gave CJ a bath and then vacuumed. I put CJ to bed and started a load of laundry. The girls stayed up and watched some TV with us before going to bed. I finished the laundry and took a shower and went to bed.

Thursday: Got up early and brought Joe to work so I could have the car. Came home and gave the kids breakfast. Then we got dressed and went to run a few errands. Post office, Walmart for diapers, and stopped on the way home to get some ice. Arrived home and the electricians my landlord hired had the power turned off to the whole house. It was stifling in the apartment. Thankfully it wasn't off for too long. Washed dishes and fed the kids lunch. Put CJ down for a nap and then rested myself. Got CJ up and went to drop all three kids at my friends house for a few hours. Went to pick Joe up from work so we could go to the pediatrician's office to discuss Kaitlyn's possible ADHD. Got out of there earlier than I anticipated and went to the grocery store. My friend who was watching our kids called Joe. We were planning on letting the girls spend the night and picking up CJ. Her husband was offended by that so wanted CJ to stay. So we went to the grocery store and got us something for dinner and a couple of movies from the Redbox. Then we went home to put that stuff away and grab a few things for CJ and went to my friend's house to drop it off. Explained that we were just trying to make things easier on them by picking up CJ. Went back home and cooked our dinner. Realized we had nothing to drink so walked down to the corner store. Forgot our keys so had to break into our own house. Joe crawled in through the bathroom window. It was quite the sight. Got in and ate our dinner and watched a movie. Then made some popcorn and watched our second movie. Then went to bed.

Friday: Again, a day when I could have slept in, but I didn't. I was up very early. It was very quiet in the house. I played on the computer. Joe got up and I went and took a shower. Got ready to go so I could bring him to work and then go pick the kids up. Dropped him off and went and got the kids. They had done great at my friends house. I hung around and talked to her for a little while and then CJ started to melt down so I decided to take him home. He was so tired. We got home and I tried to get him to eat something, but he was just not interested. I sat down with him because he wouldn't let me put him down and he fell asleep on my shoulder. So I put him down for a nap. I fed the girls lunch and laid down myself and dozed for a few. Got up and woke CJ up. Changed him and went to pick Joe up from work. We got gas and then went home to pick up the movies I forgot. Returned those and came back home. CJ was very cranky. We gave him a snack, but he was still fussing. So Joe laid him down. The girls wanted to go out and play, but the skies were getting dark. They played for a few before it began to pour. We decided we wanted to go to the drive in. So we got CJ and left to get some snacks and head up to the drive in. We got some food for dinner while up there too and spent the night under the stars in our car watching Aliens in the Attic and GI Joe. Well, I should say Joe watched GI Joe. The rest of us were sleeping by the time that came on. Joe drove home. We sent the kids right to bed and we went to bed shortly after that.

Saturday: CJ woke up shortly after 8. So I got up with him. It wasn't long after that Joe got up. We fed him breakfast before the girls even woke up. They really slept in. Joe ended up putting CJ down for an early nap. The girls missed breakfast so had a little early lunch. We were supposed to go to the beach, but the weather report was saying rain. So I was trying to figure out what we could do. I found the tye dye kit we had gotten a while ago with the shirts we bought. I thought we could do that. As I was reading the instructions I realized the shirts we got weren't 100% cotton like it called for. So we decided we'd go return/exchange for the correct shirts. So after CJ woke up we all got ready to go. I thought this would be a quick exchange. I couldn't find the 100% cotton shirts for the kids though. We ended up going to AC Moore, then Walmart, then Michaels, and finally Target before we got what we were looking for. By then it was dinner time. We stopped at Quiznos for some subs and came home and ate. Then cleaned up the kitchen and I had put the shirts in the wash. Put CJ to bed and prepared the dye. Tye dyed our shirts and sent the girls to bed. Then Joe and I watched some TV.
