Hello from my dad’s house! Right now Ryan is napping while my dad is out at the gym, so I figured I’d drop by and say hello!
Today’s been a fun little day. Cooper woke us up nice and early since it was garbage day, and for some reason there was trucks of all sorts driving down our slow little street, so he was barking non stop. If Ryan wakes up after 6, he’s up for the day, so a nice, full bark at 6:30 was all he needed to be standing in his crib, begging to be let out.
My internet was super slow this morning, so after publishing my WIAW post, I actually got a lot done. I made a single serving banana muffin, (I use Spectrum shortening as my MSPI friendly fat.) fed my sourdough starter (more on this later!) threw in a load of laundry, fed Ryan, packed his lunch and cleaned the kitchen. I also found this container of Ryan’s leftover dinner from Sunday in the diaper bag. That’s bound to smell.. We hung out and took some extremely greasy haired, bed head selfies, then put the little man down for a nap. Mind you, the nap was very UNproductive, and I accomplished a shower. That is all.
After nap time, we were off to Grandpa’s! I needed to scan and fax something, and I figured rather than spending money to do it, I’d spend gas money to go see my dad and just scan it form his house. He’s off on Wednesdays, so he loves to see Ryan and me when we make the 30 minute drive. He treated me to Chipotle which we brought back to the house to eat outside in the backyard. Chipotle = life. For some reason every part of the bowl I wanted at Chipotle was out, so it took extra long for mine to be made, so they gave me ALL THE GUAC and made my day. (I actually accidentally took a picture of my dads bowl, hence the cheese. but still.)
After lunch we went inside and Ryan hung out with Grandpa, and we decided he needed some toys here, so we went to Toys R Us to grab something. Being the spoiled baby he is, my dad went overboard and got him this vTech toy and this house? (The house was on clearance for 49.99 in store so if you’re planning to get it, check there first!) His birthday isn’t for another month! Help me.
Now he’s taking a little nap sans pants in his car seat while my dad is at the gym and I wait for my brother to come home from work so we can all have dinner together. My brother is moving to Boston for an amazing job opportunity in two weeks so we’re trying to get in as much Uncle Matt as possible while we can.
Do you find yourself more productive when the internet is down?
Hope you all are enjoying this BEAUTIFUL day! (75 here in Jersey!!)
