Butterfly World and Goats on the Roof

Well today was a well earned day of rest. We headed off to Coombs to go to Butterfly World and Goats on the Roof with Amanda, James and Olivia. It was a terrific morning, the boys had an amazing time at Butterfly World and loved seeing the Goats on the Roof while we ate lunch and did a little shopping.

Look closely at Keegan shoulder...do you see it?

Keegan had his first melt down about 10 mins from home at about 1:30 pm. Sitting a car seat with a seat belt that he could unbuckle was his undoing...literally. But all in all it was a terrific day.

Cold for my bum...

So all in all it was another exhausting day of running around and getting things done. I managed to get several more things checked off my list today. Mind you, I have also added several to the schedule for tomorrow.

We had just gotten home from Home Depot and I was in one room and Keegan was in the other when I heard a commotion and the inevitable tears that followed said commotion. I run to Keegan to find a rubbermaid container flipped over and Keegan standing beside it crying with his hands on his back. I asked him what happened and he said "bum." I asked him if he fell on his "bum" and sure enough more tears a nod and "bum" mentioning followed by the request "cold for my bum."

Well how can you say no to that. So after his bath, which showed a rather nice red mark on his upper bum and lower back we went to the freezer to procure our "cold" and to watch Backyardigans in Mommies room. However, the "cold" was placed on his head and not his "bum."

It was cute never the less.

Off to Coombs in the morning to visit the butterfly exhibit with Amanda, James and Olivia...should be a nice break.

Second day of Summer was great...

Today, Keegan and I took a much needed day of rest and went to 2 birthday parties. It was a great day and a beautiful one.

a moving sale, 3 sally anne visits and a free sign!

Our morning started at 8 am and I found that the first time I sat down, besides lunch was 3 pm today after I put Keegan down for a nap.

Trying have a garage sale with a rambunctious 2 year old, didn't actually go to bad, only had to stick him in the house twice for a time out. We started pulling stuff out of the garage around 9 this morning and by quarter after 12 I was packing what was remaining into the car and a quick bathroom break and drink grab we were off to Sally Anne. I had to go to two different locations and make a second trip all together to finish off the remaining stuff.

By the time I got back from the second trip the free items at the end of the driveway were gone and we had had a nice lunch and Keegan was asleep.

Only to realize that at 5:30 when the doorbell rang that I had half an hour to return a movie or face the dreaded late charges...good thing the doorbell woke up Keegan. Returned the movie in the nick of time rented Keegan a new movie came home and made dinner.

So all in all, I would say rather productive day...I am exhausted!

$2000 Friday, formely know as Friday June 20th 2008

Now if you ask anyone, I have absolutely no problem spending money especially if it is something I really want. However, a block heater, now known as a in-line coolant heater (just so Volkswagen can be different) and 24 hour return after departure airfare are neither what I would call something that I wanted.

Oh well, be that as it may...that is how I spent over $2000 dollars in less then an hour and half, I would have to say that might be a new record, as a car purchase and house do not count.


On another note which I find amusing Keegan was so helpful and well behaved that after a disastrous pizza and orange crush dinner, I gave him a bath and decided that after recycling that we would go for ice cream. Just as I was about to pull into the cue, Keegan feel asleep. He did however respond with a nod of his head, while sleeping mind you that he wanted an ice cream when I asked. So i bought him one and pulled over in attempt to wake him from slumber...I know horrible mother. But it was ice cream! Finally got him slightly roused that he grabbed the spoon to only stick his other hand in the ice cream, which might have helped him in waking up.

However, the first few bites were done asleep.

Well, I had all the intention of blogging more and even had a better schedule worked out to do so. However, I have been remiss in this intention. Although, to be honest, for the last 3 weeks I feel that I have been watching my life play out on poorly syndicated television show.

I know find myself, about to become a statistic of Divorce. While, I am still in the process of having to deal with this reality I am glad that this is happening as an adult and not child. To be honest I really don't think as I a child I would be have been able to handle this. I feel for all those that have gone through this situation, no matter their age. I only hope that they had someone who they could turn to, who could make them feel better and for that matter make them smile.

In all of this disarray I have a new found depth of appreciation for my sister. Out of all this, it has brought us closer.

As if that wasn't enough, I was in the middle of trying to sell my house, raise a child and be a good wife. The good wife part I am still working on. /evil grin

So while all of this is going on, showings, preparing to leave, and being on my own. I sell the house while Rye is off in Hinton flying. To have him get back Saturday, we leave for the HHT on Monday, which we cut short due to having to be back for Rye to head to the great white North this past Sunday.

So the HHT goes, we find a house we get back on the 14th, Rye leaves on the 15th, I sell the truck that night and then start the long and arduous process of getting the house ready to move and all that that entails.

Which brings us to today, to find out that Rye is in Greenland...I thought that you were supposed to be in Eureka. /scratches head

Oh well.

Still working on getting the house ready, making all necessary changes and getting in all those last minute appointments. Jetta goes in tomorrow for a block heater...I get cold thinking about it.

Saturday, I am going to attempt to have a Moving sale all on my lonesome. Sunday is double whammy b-day and to be honest I don't even want to tell what is planned for next week.

You know that song...I am slowly going crazy...

/points at herself.
