june twenty-six

This morning my cleaning lady came (DOUBLE BIG YEY!) And it felt four hundred percent fantastic to have a clean house once she left! (LET ME TELL YOU!) It even smells spotless!!

By lunch, Angela arrived, and we hung out for the afternoon. The welcome wagon (for the baby department) arrived around 2pm, and gave a wonderful gift basket for Mack. I got some samples and gifts, coupons, etc. It took her almost an hour to go through everything and show me what everything was, and do her "spiel". (Had to throw in some Yiddish for you there!)

After she left Angela and I got the boys ready to go for a walk. I wanted a blue slushie, and so it took an hour to get everyone dressed, and packed up (and Mack fed too) before leaving. I got to use my double stroller (Graco Quattro Duo) for the first time today, and it's an awesome stroller! I just love it.

We walked to the Dépaneur du Coin for slushies and then started to walk back. The Dépaneur wasn't far, and we stopped off at a friends house around the corner from my house to see if she was home so she could meet Mack. We chatted a few minutes with her, and then kept walking. Somewhere between her house and my house (one street!) Sean fell asleep in the stroller! PHEW! So Angela and I walked back to my house, I put the milk in my fridge (The reason actually for going for slushies was because we needed 3.25% milk for Sean) and Angela & I went into the park across from my house and sat there and talked while the boys (both!) slept.

While we were sitting in the park, a house on the other side of the park, a cop car brought the teenage son home. The father came out when the cops came, in his shorts with no t-shirt or socks or anything else on. Weird! I'm curious what the kid did...! Did he shoplift? Get into a fight? Vandalize??! I hope there aren't going to be problems in the area if this kid is a menace!!

This evening we went knitting with the West Island Knits. Here is a nice picture of myself & my sister, it actually came out really nice. It was good to get out of the house!

Though, I don't think Mack was too happy to be leaving the house! Look at that face!

But he was held by everyone and was happy to get some lovin'. I think he's going to be a thumb sucker (his brother isn't/wasn't).

I actually got some knitting done! I worked on my misty garden scarf, and it's coming along (slow but...) good. The food (pricey) was fantastic, and I tried Cheese Fondu for the first time ever! It was soooo good. I also got to sit back and enjoy some beer (Sleeman's Honey Brown). Mmmmmm! Beer & Knitting!

I am soon coming close (not telling you how close), to my 5000th comment! Just letting you all know that there will be a prize for my 5000th commenter, whenever that should happen!

SP12 Question of the Week #3

What would you consider the perfect amount of stash?

Am I allowed to answer this, considering that I own a yarn shop???

I think Mack looks really really really cozy in my arms. I can't believe how TINY he is....! I'm definitely enjoying EVERY moment with him.... he won't last this size very long will he? I wish I could bottle up this age & keep him this size forever! (And by this size - he's still in preemie outfits, size newborn is WAY to big on him, so forget even like 0-3 month size too!)

Sean went to my parents house tonight as Jamie had baseball and tomorrow is golfing (so jealous!) with a supplier really early in the morning. So since I can't lift Sean, he's sleeping over at my parents house. Tomorrow I am taking advantage of the house to myself (with Mack) and getting everything that I have to get done accomplished! Yey for some time to do so!

Your favorite things swap package is on its way! Hope you enjoy it!

As far as too much stash---I finally at the point where I feel really comfortable with what I have. I'm barely busting at the seams for space.

I know, I desperately miss those days. It's why I had a second child. Nick grew too fast, and I needed another baby!

Tara said...

Aaaaaaaaaaawwww, he's so tiny!!!! When you got home, did you suddenly find Sean to be ENORMOUS? When I got home from the hospital with Maxime, I couldn't believe how freakin' huuuuge Émilie was.

Caroline said...

Awww, you make me wanna have a baby right now. I'm not a patient girl.

Amelah said...

Jenn said...

I hear ya, my house is a complete disaster lately. Wish I had a cleaning lady, te he. :-) Lucky you!!!
I got to enjoy my first beer the other day, it was so hot out and the beer was so cold...very enjoyable I must say. I'm going to a friend's b-day party tomorrow afternoon so I may have another one there.
