July 22 of 31

I went to go see Transformers today with Jamie after a brunch at my parents house. It was really nice to go on a date with Jamie and not have to think about anything else for a couple of hours. I do have to say that I wish that Josh Duhamel was in more of the movie, but overall, this movie, at 2 hours and 24 minutes long (or so) was absoutely fantastic. It was also very nice of my parents to give us a movie pass to enter for free as well as two free drinks and a popcorn. What a treat.

I am in love with this sweater from Debbie Bliss' pattern book Rialto. (Does anyone have it?) I am thinking about purchasing the book, but have a couple of questions before I buy it, if anyone actually has it? (If so, please leave me a comment or email me here.)
This evening we just chilled and watched Big Brother 8 at 8pm and then back to back episodes of Gene Simmons Family Jewels. (I love Gene Simmons!) I was feeling too hot (and bloated) to knit, so the only knitting I got done today was a couple of rows this afternoon at my parents house on my Jaywalkers. I love the way they are turning out, I'm just a little upset about the tightness of them. I thought I'd be okay, but I hope they'll be okay in the end.

Tomorrow the nurse from McGill is coming back (belated) to finish off the questionnaire for the research study I participated in while at the hospital, when he was a week or two old, and then again when Sean was about 2 months old. They were supposed to come back when Sean was 4 months old, but I called and called and left messages for them to call me back, so I thought maybe the study was over, etc. Finally on Thursday I got a call, the nurse is coming tomorrow. Apparently they lost 1 nurse in the research study and they were all trying to catch up on their work plus hers. So, finally, they are coming tomorrow. This last visit will pay 20$, which I'll put along with the 20$ that his great-grandmother gave him today and I'll find him a toy to buy. I really want to get him a play station that is musical that he can pull himself onto. He loves standing up, and I want him to be able to stand and be entertained. Anyone have any good suggestions on a musical station? The one that I picked out for him, I ended up having to return because the thing wasn't bilingual, but all in French! (Leapfrog). I wish I could find the same thing, but in English! I'll check ToysRus.ca and see what I can find for him.

This week I will: finish grouting my bathroom tub (the rest of the bathroom will happen over time), grout the bathroom tub upstairs in the apartment, make the curtains for my dining room, and sew some pouches. That's on the list! Oh, and finish my book, and knit a lot! This week I hope to make as relaxing as possible. We deserve a really relaxing week here in this household!

Better get some sleep.

I am so glad to hear that you and Jamie got a date! These are important when you have kids. I don't practice what I preach but I don't have family in town to help me out so the last "date" I had with my husband was three years ago!
So is the Transformers worth renting?
BTW, I can't believe how big Sean is getting (and more adorable, if that was possible!), it goes by way too fast doesn't it?
