Contractual Discoveries and other Sunday Somethings...

As we've stumbled through our weekend in our kitchenless house, we've made several discoveries.  I wanted to see what you guys think.  I'm kind of thinking we need to have a convo with our good buddy...Mr. Contractor.
  • Four or five of Husband's Gatorades are gone...vanished...drank by workers on hot days.  Now, we seriously don't mind if you "borrow" some of our beverages, but at least replace them or mention something.  We haven't gone to BJs in forever b/c of all of this chaos and it just irks Husband when someone takes his stuff.
  • They used our vacuum...our personal family vacuum...to clean up construction stuff one day.  We get that you may leave some of your equipment behind one day, but again, let us know...or call to ask if we have a ShopVac...annoying...
  • Some of the baseboard molding that was installed looks great...perfect...pristine.  Then some of it catches your eye like you wouldn't believe.  For instance, why would you put a fancy little cut on one side of our front door, but not the other.  I like the way it looks, but I also like the way symmetry and consistency look...
What do you guys think?  We should say something, right?  Either way, by this time next week, this should all be done...there I go jinxing myself again.

Matt started going down the "red slide" at the pool yesterday.  It's a slide that they were told they could start using when they were three...those are the rules...I'm a rule follower.  I thought Husband was too, but then I saw him taking Hailey down a few weeks ago.  She didn't like it b/c she went under.  All of the sudden, Matt's interested yesterday, so Husband takes him down.  Well, this kid LOVES it!  I actually went down with all of my Knee Fear and everything.  The only problem is, Hailey still doesn't want to go down and wants to use the Pirate Slide.  I'm screwed when I'm by myself.  

My only saving grace is that they're right next to each other and Matt doesn't need me to go down with him anymore...SCORE!

Husband and I almost had a knock-down-drag-out fight at the grocery store last night.  He handed Hailey a container of blueberries and she proceeded to throw it into the cart.  They then proceeded to open up and roll all over the place.  He gets pissed saying that she "spiked it" and then got mad at me for my "well, what did you expect?" attitude.  The Crazies are trained to help when we go food shopping...not just sit there and look pretty with a container of blueberries.  Then he got even angrier when I couldn't stop laughing...it was hysterical.

We've eaten out 5 of the last 6 meals...our plan was to grill, but then Earth morphed into the Sun and it got too hot.

I'm getting a pedicure today and I'm really hoping my toenail falls off as Christine (my nail technician) is leaving for a month long jaunt to Vietnam and leaving me and my toenail behind.  She's the only person who has been allowed to deal with this toenail...I want to cry at the thought of her leaving...sigh...the big things in life, right?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've slept like a baby since we've been back home.  I never want to sleep in the same room as my children again...ever...it's torture.

Especially when I go to help Matt one morning and he looks up with a huge smile and says, "Mom, your boobie is hanging out of your dress."  Nice, kid...very nice.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I cried like a baby the other night at my book.  I was so thankful Husband wasn't awake b/c he would have made fun of me like crazy...damn Jodi Picoult.  Keeping Faith if you're wondering.

I miss GG like crazy...she needs to move down here PRONTO!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Potty training is still going wonderfully.  We've had a few setbacks (like Matt shitting his pants like it was his job), but we've taken care of those.  We've even gotten used to frequenting the restroom several times at the restaurant.  We're not close on bedtime at all, but naps are getting closer...still using a Pull-up.  I'm really proud of them and don't miss those damn diapers one single bit!

In a couple of weeks, we're turning right around and going away again.  I seriously can't wait...I need the beach.  That's right...I made it to Long Island again without going to a beach!  WTF???  At least we got to go out on Papa's boat...that was pretty awesome.  Pictures to come, but I'm totally off kilter, so I'm behind on EVERYTHING!
