Is just a bit crazier than normal. I’ve been working full time, which will thankfully go down to just two days a week next week. In the meantime, I’m just trying to keep up.
Thankfully we have Brent’s mom to help until Saturday. And she has been great with Cormac, and nice enough to let us go out a few times sans baby as well. Last Saturday we went to a new pub, The Sixgill, in Fremont, where I had this amazing cocktail. I don’t remember what it was (sign of a good night?), but it was grapefruity and delicious.
And we inhaled these fingerling potato skins. Like literally, the bartender commented on how quickly we ate them, and the other bartender tried to give us more because she didn’t realize we had even gotten them yet. Awkward.
So, yeah, delicious obviously. This pub was great. We’ve got to go back. Too bad no kids allowed.
Even while working more now, I’ve been trying to get more veg into my diet, so I’ve been eating a lot of salads for dinner while doing some charting. I cooked that chicken and assembled the salad, which is pretty much the extent of my cooking as of late.
My house continues to be a big of not-so-organized chaos, but I imagine that will continue for the next 20 years or so. Poor Lucy is aging rapidly and limping and occasionally being incontinent and I just really have no idea what to do about it. And the laundry, Oh, the laundry. Oh well.
Meanwhile Cormac is awesome and seems more determined than ever to be on his feet and walking. Yikes! We went to the park this weekend and he climbed the stairs to the baby slide by himself! So sad, terrifying, and exciting all at once! Oh, and he LOVES swimming! He has weekly classes and its so fun to see him dunking his head under water and splashing and laughing. Highlight of my week.
Ignore my awkward, forced smile. Swimsuits and water have never been my element.
So yeah, life seems a bit hectic, and I’ll be thrilled when it calms down, but then I think, it probably will never calm down. It’ll always be something. But that’s kind of nice in its own way. But now I’m going to watch The Voice (CeeLo is coming back next season!!) and research vacation spots for January.
