Tuesday Tidbits

  • The weather here is back to being traditional spring after an extreme warm spell in mid March. The forecast was looking really nice today (high of 14), so I sent Alex to the sitters with a hoodie and a lined spring coat – but it is pretty dismal outside now – and not nice and sunny as expected. I hope he is warm enough #mommyfail
  • I’m at home prepping for my colonoscopy tomorrow. I haven’t been able to ingest anything but clear fluids since yesterday at 6am. Let’s just say this sucks. I am dreaming of my post procedure meal… all day long.  I understand being on a liquid diet for 24 hours before… but this is crazy!
  • Since I’m at home with lots of time on my hands, I’m watching Breaking Dawn Part 1… for the 3rd time. I don’t care what anyone says – this series rocks.
  • I played around with my book lineup – I ended up reading I’ve Got Your Number first [fantastic!!], now I’m reading The Art of Racing in the Rain… next will be We Have to Talk About Kevin.
  • I saw the Hunger Games a week or so ago – FANTASTIC! Really lived up to the book – which is so hard to do.
  • I’m planning Alex’s 4th birthday party! Superhero themed, planning on making capes, magic wands, and maybe masks.  Don’t know when I’ll do it all… I really should have bought fabric and did it today. A will be 4 in less than a month – amazing.
  • Alex is having fun calling Matt “Matthew” 🙂 
  • Last Thursday I had the day off so I kept Alex from the sitters and we had a date at the Butterfly Conservatory in Cambridge. We had a lot of fun – we saw butterflies, birds, ladybugs, turtles, and even a butterfly climb out of it’s cocoon! And the funny thing was that when we first walked in I saw a cute little Korean boy about Alex’s age walk by. I couldn’t see the mom from the front – but did a while later – and it was the mom who came to talk to us at AdopTalk back in October 2008!  Small world.   After we went to McDonalds and we then did a little shopping.
  • On Saturday I took Alex on a horse drawn carriage ride around downtown Stratford. I could not believe how much I didn’t know about our small town. Alex was a trooper – 1 hour+ waiting… and I rewarded him with a chocolate milk shake. 
  • I’ve been having fun participating in my friend Kerryanne’s photo a day for April blog. I wish I had done it every day… but I did not too badly. Check out the amazing pictures from around the world.
