A {Thankfully} Uneventful Week

Weekly Happenings: Thankfully, this week was rather uneventful. Last week’s knocked out tooth incident was enough for the time being. 😉 I think the only thing that was out of the ordinary was that Paul took Thursday off (he had some use-it-or-lose-it time-off time) and the two of us took Abigail to the zoo. It was tiring (we’re trying to get her used to not wearing the puppy backpack/leash but still stay close to us) but still fun. I would add more, but there really isn’t anything else to add.

The Weekly Weather: The mornings have been really cold (30s) and the afternoons cool (50s-60s). Sunny for the most part (we did have a storm come through on Sunday, but that was about it).

What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been working from home, which was nice. I was able to leave Abigail at home quite a bit while I ran Joseph to and from school and ran other short errands.

What Sarah’s Been Up To: I went to book club, which was fun as always. I also managed to tweak my back yet again (I seem to do it about once a year, it seems), so a trip to urgent care to get some prescription-strength Ibuprofen, some muscle relaxers, and a steroid shot was what we did today.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s still plugging away at school. Wednesday was a half day (to let the teachers have some extra planning time), so he enjoyed the extra time off.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She was her normal, cheerful, sassy self this week. One funny thing that happened this morning: she was playing in her room and the light bulb for her light happened to burn out. She told us her light needed new batteries. 🙂

This Week in Pictures:

A six minute breakfast, thanks to my breakfast sandwich maker. I scramble an egg, put it in the sandwich maker, put in an insert to hold a pre-cooked sausage patty, and put on the lid. Then I stick it in the microwave for a minute and a half. There is another insert for it where you would put the English muffin in (for the last thirty seconds of cooking) to get steamed, but I prefer my English muffin toasted, so I toast it while the rest is cooking. Then I just add a slice of cheese when assembling it and Voila!
Watching Blue’s Clues while playing with her Blue’s Clues toys…she’s living the life!
Sitting on top of the platform for the slide in our back yard. It was a beautiful day, so we made sure to get some outside play in.
Zoo time!
She started flapping her wings like a butterfly…she’s also wearing the only mask she’ll wear: her vampire one from Halloween. 🙂
Looking at the monkeys (I just realized it’s hard to see the monkey…he/she is sitting on the hammock, right up on the edge of the fence…but it does look like just a big ball of fuzz, ha).
It’s rare for the jaguar to be right up along the fence, but he was that day!
She really liked the bright blue birds in this enclosure.
Meal prep for the win! I love it when I can dice up things ahead of time so that when dinner time hits I can just dump it all in and go.
