First night of the boys in new rooms has passed without too much incident. The twins were noisy enough for Emanuel to hear them through the floor (the bedrooms are stacked) but other than that it seems to be a success. Now for the reorganizing to make sure that Emanuel’s new room and the basement room are tidy and the kids know where everything SHOULD go. All that is left in our room is Trinity’s crib… so the big move is imminent!
I spent much of last night with two different projects – continuing mocking out pages for Emanuel’s book (I have a nice stack now, hopefully the printed images will work out) and burning cds of photos off my laptop. I am finally up to mid 2010 and my computer is no longer groaning at my excessive photography efforts. I can’t wait until I have my own external harddrive (which will occur sometime AFTER Ken upgrades to a better one than the one he has currently and I inherit that one… so a while yet). I have way too many cds and since I am depending on that medium for storage I have TWO sets of the photos… Ken is VERY glad we are digital and NOT film!
Our morning centred around going to the nearby splash park… we met up with just Nathan and had a brief run through of how the carseats are installed and gave him some baby stuff that we don’t need. The kids had a pretty good time, splash parks like this one are not Emanuel’s favourite thing, he likes water tables more… and there was a little boy who was unsupervised and not overly well behaved but we managed. following that a trip to H&W of course, can’t go without our fruit!
Today is a bit of an off day for me, truth be told… I spiked my sugars for the first time in over a week by eating two little white bread subs (mmmm) and then taking a nap, but checked 15 min later and had gone down substantially which makes me feel REALLY good… but add to that having Ken constantly telling me to SIT DOWN when I have NOTHING to do and I am starting to feel the mopy moments. I just want to be productive and everything is waiting on someone or something else. Once I finish my last commission (not that I am NOT open to taking more!!) I am going to get started on my birthday present – Tinkerbell Afghan! This is one I am determined to not gift at the last minute!!
We did throw the kids out into the backyard in the afternoon… I am going to get the boys done their camping lapbook this week, but today was simply not the day – instead we had bubbles and messing around with their toys.
The twins and Ken headed to the library tonight to do a library program which gave me a little over an hour of little kid time. Kai Lan and colouring books for the win! Some days it is hit or miss with how the little two get along. Trinity is still only 2 and grabby, and Emanuel does get tired of sharing. Doesn’t help that I let them stay up past 8pm just to see Daddy and the boys get home.
So tomorrow is my regular appointment and then we plan out the rest of our week. Wish me luck!
