First day of summer . . .
Friday, June 21, 2013
and I'll spend the evening cutting grass (again). It's been less than a week (we cut it on Sunday), but it's already too long. I'll take DD#1 to work and then get busy on the grass. DH is working tonight and DD#2 left this morning for basketball team camp, so that leaves just me and DD#3 so at least I don't have to worry about dinner. She's ok with a sandwich or cereal and I'll have a salad or leftovers.
I went with my sister, DD#2 and my great-nephew (GN) yesterday to one of the local parks that has a "spray park", which is basically just a bunch of fountains and fancy sprinklers. It was really cute, but GN was too young (7 months). He liked sitting on the side and splashing a little and have a little bit of water hit him. He would have been just as happy in his little pool!
We were going to walk at that park to have GN take a nap, but none of us brought a change of clothes or shoes. DD#2 wanted to go to the gym and run and shoot some baskets since she'll be playing in games this weekend, so we went home and feed GN and went to the park closest to our house. DH was home and had started getting stuff ready to grill, but he put in all back in the fridge so he could go with us.
We dropped DD#2 off at the gym and we walked with the baby (he still didn't fall asleep but was pleasant). It was pretty hot & sunny (which it wasn't at the spray park), so we tried to walk mostly in the shady area. We walked the hilly trail for about a mile, so that was some nice exercise! We had to drag DD#2 out of the gym because she was in the middle of a game, but we were all hungry!
DH grilled turkey burgers, chicken, corn & asparagus (one of our new favorites), so it was a great dinner.
I took DD#1 & 2 to Walmart. They both needed "stuff" and DD#2 needed snacks for her trip. It was almost 9 when we got home, but I still ate some fro yo! I watched my portion and put strawberries and whip cream on it.
I'll have GN again tomorrow! He's really a joy to watch, so I don't mind when my niece & hubby want to go kayaking. The only problem is I don't get in as much house cleaning as I should on Saturdays.
With DD#2 gone all weekend, I might not be motivated to run unless DH & I get up and go early tomorrow or Sunday (he works nights both days). I'll get in some exercise with GN and I'll just enjoy the weekend!
