I’ve got writers block like no other. I’ve got the time to write but man, I’m just stuck! So here’s a bunch of random thoughts I’m having. As the title states: this blog post has no point.
First of all, holy pandemic. We had 1,500 new cases of coronavirus in Iowa yesterday – our highest number by A LOT. We are now closing down bars in certain hot spot counties and I’m afraid we are headed back into another shutdown.
Here’s the thing – did the first shutdown work? I’m not really sure. Are we sure the masks are working? Or how is this still spreading like this? Like, of course I’ll still wear a mask but man, what are we doing that is or isn’t working? I don’t get it. Iowa has apparently been mis-reporting numbers for awhile lately so now I’m just not sure what or who to believe.
Second of all, I can’t wait for my bathroom to be done. It is looking absolutely fabulous but between the dog barking every time our tiler comes through the door, keeping the boys away from him as he works, juggling the babysitters, having to keep the upstairs bathroom neat, it’s just a lot. Looks like we should be functioning by next Wednesday if all goes well. Plus, it has been hotter than hades – the bank clock read 100 degrees yesterday – so we can’t really just kick the boys outside.
Our tiler, Tony, he is so good with the boys and let’s them ask all the questions and explain everything but man, Carver has NO self control when it comes to tools or construction. He literally cannot leave them alone. I usually end up at my mom’s house just to give them peace and quiet to work!
I don’t work this weekend for the first time in a long string of weekends. I usually pick up extra hours on the weekends – I’m only required to work every third. I want to do some family stuff but a) it’s going to be so hot and b) Craig usually doesn’t know his work schedule on the weekends until he’s on his way home from work and c) COVID. We’ve been dying to take the boys to a waterpark or the pool or ANYWHERE but no luck. It’s turning out to be a boring summer ever since our pool sprung a leak, and then COVID of course. That would have been nice to have this week!
Gannon starts speech therapy next week – every Thursday morning. We are so excited to see his progress! She evaluated him and we determined that between sign language and his words that he has about 10 words. The average 2 year old has about 200 words and can make two word phrases or sentences so we’ve got some catching up to do! I can’t wait to see him grow!
Carver’s first day of preschool was GREAT! His teacher said he got a little emotional around nap time and said “I just want to sleep in MY bed!” – dude – I get it. And then he was OUT! Check out this picture his teacher sent me:
I’ve got a busy day today, I worked last night and I’ll go home and sleep. Gannon has an ear checkup at 3:15, then I have my first ever WalMart grocery pickup to try out. Then I’ve got to pick up Craig’s new work boots and then my wedding ring had to get fixed and I have to pick that up, I keep putting it off.
BLAH! SO that’s about all I know. What a weird rambling blog post for you all to start out your Friday! I hope you have a good day, a good weekend, and more than that I hope that the next time you check on my blog I have something a little more prophetic to share with you all!
