Another Week Gone

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly a home can get trashed. I spent all of Saturday cleaning up because Mark's dad was passing through on his way to Washington and needed a place to stay the night. Now, only Monday, the only thing still clean is my bedroom. Oh well.

Mark was an absolute angel and dragged the propane tank to the gas station to fill it for our barbeque. I was in heaven and did up some yummy steaks and homemade mashed potatoes for dinner that day. I forsee lots of grilling out this summer since I don't have to mess with charcoal, and it's yummy, and quick. We didn't fill the tank last year and just used charcoal, which was annoying. The grill and tank were both free, and it was only $13 to fill it. Yeah!

And we've found some foods that our little baby loves! Peanut butter and jelly sandwich with milk. Ramen noodles. Powerade. Lots of fun! Apperantly the kiddo doesn't like when Mommy blogs about him/her, and kicked the keyboard. :-) Hopefully the insurance authorization will come through and we'll be able to keep our appointment for Friday. Oren has been counting down the days, and even Mark is getting excited! (Baby also does not appreciate sneezing....)

It's been a pretty uneventful but still somehow busy week, and we are all getting ready for school to get out for the summer in a couple weeks. The temperature is finally feeling like spring, although today was 99 degrees for the high. I knew it was hot, and even got out some gaucho shorts, but I didn't know it was that hot! Whew! Luckily it'll be a bit cooler tomorrow, but still, this does not bode well for the summer and I envision lots of time spent inside for Mommy, who burns better than an egg on the sidewalk.

I hear you with the whole house getting messy right after you clean it...and I only have a 2 year old! Hmmm...I guess it's a never ending battle! Hope your authorization goes through!

Funny how it takes almost no time for the house to get messy, and then it takes forever to get it clean again! Especially if you're like me and don't actually do anything to get it clean again...

The grilling sounds so fun! Jeff and I really need to go out and picnic at a park or something, so we can use our little grill.

I really hope that you get the insurance authorization and can see your baby on Friday! Fingers crossed!
