So I thought I was free from those little pests. I hadn't been bitten up on schedule like I had been the previous month. The bug guy came and went without even bothering to spray. I'm not even sure if he checked behind the bed because I can't move that heavy thing away from the wall myself and I won't have my hubby do too much with his recent surgery.
This morning I woke to have more ankle biting going on. Fortunately it was just a few and a good washing should take care of some of it for the rest of the weekend, but today I have to do a few other things before I can get to it.
On a happier note, my son gets to have a second showing of his birthday for the relatives. My sister isn't going to show because I guess being 9 months pregnant is too much for her to bear. Maybe she'll just go into labor for a decent excuse. At least we get to play with her son, my mother is watching him today so he can be at the party. The kids love to play with each other.
Instead of making a whole cake, I opted to do cupcakes. The cake I had in mind would have taken too much time, cupcakes only take half the amount of time to make. This year he picked strawberry. I don't think he knew there were other options besides white and chocolate before.
This is his second dessert because we managed banana pudding pie for his actual date. I guess turning 6 has it's perks.
I'm thinking some of the bug problem is leading to other stresses because he's reverted to peeing his pants all this summer and there has been more yelling. My kids are usually great kids and are most of the time well behaved in public, but some days I think as the parent we get the worst side of these kids.
I'm hoping for a good day with plenty of running outside for them. Despite having all sorts of junk food, I should do fairly well in my eating today, despite it not being that nutritious. Some days are just like that, I'll have to make up for it tomorrow.
The other thing I will be doing this weekend, besides more bed sheet washing, is cleaning out my R2 unit. I need to get him in the living room where he can be a centerpiece instead of in a corner of my kitchen waiting to be washed.
Even when life seems to be overwhelming, I just need to pick the most important task and get it out of the way for other things to be done. Eventually it will all be back to normal and possibly better than before! Little by little things are done and eventually there will be time to do things I've been longing to do but more important things need to be done first.
I'm waiting for normal to happen again, it will eventually come back.
