Weekly Happenings: It was another typical week in the Darr household. Paul worked from home, I kept busy keeping on top of Joseph’s schoolwork, Joseph DID his schoolwork, and Abigail destroyed the toy room on a daily basis (I wish I was kidding, but every time I stepped out of Joseph’s room after helping him with homework, the loft looked like a toy-infused tornado had struck). Luckily, I have bins for pretty much everything, so it’s mostly just time-consuming to clean up.
The Weekly Weather: This is where the title of this post comes in. There have been several days towards the end of the week where we were supposed to get rain and it hasn’t happened (and one time where the rain all of a sudden popped onto our weather app as we heard it start to sprinkle). It’s mostly been sunny, warm, and humid.
What Paul’s Been Up To: As I mentioned before, he worked from home this week. He also spent his lunch break on Monday taking the van in to get a tire replaced. It was last Friday that I pulled out of the garage to go grab food and the low tire pressure indicator came on. It was still on the next day as I loaded up the kids to go get food, so I had Paul look at the tire. He noticed right away what I had missed: the tire was completely wearing out in one spot and that was making it so that air was slowly escaping. He put Abigail’s car seat into the other car (there was already a spare booster in there for Joseph) and I took the other car to go do what I needed to do. Then on Monday, he called Walmart. Luckily they considered a tire replacement to be an emergency case, so they opened up the Tire/Lube for him to come in (they haven’t been doing most of their typical maintenance appointments since those aren’t considered essential during the lockdown). He got it taken care of, brought lunch home for us (and a surprise for each kid). I’m so grateful for him!
What Sarah’s Been Up To: wrangling kids and household duties…need I say more?
What Joseph’s Been Up To: Cranking out schoolwork, playing, being my runner when I need pretty much anything…he’s such a good kid. 🙂
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s living up the toddler life, haha. The other day, she was pretending to look through binoculars (she was cupping her hands around her eyes) and she told me, “Hey, Mom! I’m using my hand nanocolers!” 🙂 It’s one of the best Abigail-isms, yet.
