I haven’t figured out what to title this week’s weekend reflection post. Maybe I’ll think of a good one when I finish writing. The week went by way too fast. It seemed like we had too much to do, which doesn’t make sense because this was our first full week without our jobs. Maybe that is what I should title it.
Even though I did not have to get up early to go to work I’ve been extremely tired lately. I might be getting depressed again. But it shouldn’t be effecting me too much because I am taking St. John’s Wart.
I told myself that when I was done working I would work extra hard on my blog. I wanted to start right away in November writing full time. Yeah right, like that is going to happen when you have three kids that demand your attention all the time.
So I thought when would be the best time to write with the least distractions? At night of course when everyone else is in bed. I tried a couple of times this past week but for some reason when 11 ‘o clock rolled around I just could not keep my eyes open, let alone concentrate on writing. Sometimes just staring at the computer screen makes me tired. Now I am sitting here at 8:30 pm with a long list of story ideas to write. I am hoping to be able to stay up all night until they are done. We’ll see.
My kids are changing and growing way to quickly. I’ve told myself that I have to get the video camera out more often. I regret not doing so. Maybe this week. Sometimes I just get so caught up with housework, dinner, laundry, naps etc and I forget about the small things in life. Especially those three cute little…stinkers tucked in their beds. I’d just love to spend a day relaxing and playing with my kids with the video camera running.
Here’s an update on the little stinkers.
Courtney just had a religious decathlon on Saturday. They competed against seventeen other Catholic school’s in the Diocese of Sacramento. I didn’t even know the answers to some of the questions. The Holy Family students got fifth place. I was very proud of Courtney.
Ciara is the energetic, always wanting to help, “I can do it myself,” entertaining two-year-old. She wants to help with everything. This afternoon when the house was a mess she wanted to help me do the dishes. That’s great, but I just don’t have the patience for that. Chris always has her help with the dishes. But when my whole house is a mess and the dishes are just a mere 2% of the mess and I want it ALL cleaned up before dinner I just don’t have the patience for a Mommy’s little helper. Someday she’ll understand.
We think that Conan has multiple food intolerance. We already know that he can not handle bananas. When ever we give him the monkey food he just throws it up. This past week he’s been suffering from a terrible case of the hives and a fever. When I googled multiple food intolerance bananas along with a few of Conan’s favorite foods were listed as common foods that people can not handle. They can cause the hives, diarrhea, and even cause people to throw up. The website suggested that we cut those foods out of his diet for two weeks. If the symptoms don’t go away then we need to take him do the doctor. These are the foods that might be giving Conan trouble, citrus fruits, apples, bananas, cheese, tomatoes, chocolate, strawberries and avocado. So far he’s gone without those foods for three days. The hives are just starting to fade and his fever is gone. I’ll keep you updated on his progress.
I guess that was my week in a nutshell, or maybe not in a nutshell. This post ended up being longer than I expected it to be. If you are participating in this meme don’t forget to leave your links and comments.
