(12/5) Work day for me and Dad had the kids. We took the kids out to sushi tonight at our favorite restaurant (Sushi Spott). Jensen has been on a salad kick, and inhaled all the green salad and kept thieving the cabbage out of the yakisoba we ordered to supplement the rolls (which they also inhaled). D was so polite - he thanked the waitress every time she brought something to our table. So cute! I really appreciate the waitress there, she knows the kids by name and visits with us each time we go. I told her how very kind she is and thanked her as we were leaving. D & J rode with me on the way home and D kept telling me how we needed to go to "Maymie's house" (Jamie's).
(12/6) TGIF! Work day for Dad & me and Kathy had the kids. I left early to go to another foot appointment where I was finally cleared to run (WOOHOO!!). Picked up the kiddos early. C had a play with Nanan and I had book club. Love book club! Granddad and Grandma came to watch the twinsies and said they were a riot. They kept them up late. Here's hoping they sleep in tomorrow. We all could use it :)
(12/7) Woke to frozen pipes this morning. I turned the heater on in the laundry room and opened up all the cabinets, and then headed out to the gym. Brilliant move when you have no water to shower in... But I hadn't had my coffee and didn't think things through. After stopping for coffee, I came home and got the kids ready for hockey. We got to hockey only to discover C only had one skate. So I spoke to rentals, the pro shop, the parents in our locker room, the coaches, checked lost & found and managed to borrow a pair of skates. During all this, J spilled his drink alllll over himself, drenching himself in the process. Oh, did I mention it is 24* outside, and was not much better inside next to the ice. Grumble. Got him cleaned up and changed and then fed them snack (pomegranate, his fave) and wandered around trying to keep warm. From what I saw of it, hockey went okay. Came home and checked the water...still off. We went to Sarah's and filled up there and then I grabbed some teriyaki for the kids. We were going to go to Warm Beach to see the lights, but it is so bitterly cold that we decided against. I chatted with Granddad who gave me an idea to improve the heat in the laundry room, so moved things around and voila water! Yaaaay! We also got out our Christmas decorations and put up some of it where the littles can't disturb it much. C decorated the whole tree by himself. Love it!
(12/9) Work day for me and Dad has the kiddos, plus one. We have Bridger this week too and are hoping good things for his family.
