january sixteen

To the anonymous commenter who left me a comment telling me that I'll have to put a stop payment on my husband's check every 6 months. You're Mistaken. Inform yourself. With my bank anyhow, a check is STALE dated after 6 months, you cannot cash it anymore. Plus, my newspaper carrier returned the envelope unopened with the check I mailed him, in my mailbox, but thank you for your anonymous concern.

On another note about anonymous comments - I find them funny. I do not publish them, because they're retarded and they do not deserve a place in my blog comments, but I find it very COWARDLY of someone to hide behind an anonymous comment. Especially when I can see the IP address. So think twice before you want to send an anonymous comment. Are you that embarrassed about what you're writing that you cannot put your name? I receive anonymous comments from time to time, and I just cannot believe that people have nothing better to do with their time than to write a nasty anonymous comment. Get a life. And didn't your mother teach you that if you have nothing nice to say, to say nothing at all? Geez...

This morning Mack got up at 6:30 am after getting up at 12:30 am. I am not sure if he was too hot in what he was wearing or not, maybe. I'll dress him in lighter clothing tonight for bed. It's hard when you're limited to what's in your suitcase. I never know how to pack for "all kinds of situations" when you're supposed to be packing light! We have a ceiling fan gong on in the bedroom and it has not been hot enough to use the A/C unit.

This morning was laundry time. I had three loads to do. One of the boys clothing, (Sean's been soaking through his diapers - not fun), and one load of mine, as well as one bib load. I do not wash bibs with other items because of the velcro (I've ruined clothing because of it).

Then Amy and I took both boys and we went for a walk, Mack feel asleep in the stroller and Sean drew on paper (and a bit on himself) while I checked my emails. We had found a spot right outside the clubhouse to use the internet, since Sean & Mack cannot go inside as they are under 18 years of age.

When we got back to my grandmother's condo her boyfriend was over to visit. He had gifts for the boys, which was very sweet of him, but totally not necessary. One of the gifts, a wooden toy for Sean , which he loves of course, is crazy big and I hope we can take it back to Montreal, providing there is room in the suitcase.

Mack all smiles!

Eventually Sherrie came by, as we were all going out together. Sherrie's grandfather lives in Boca so she flew down for a few days to visit him so she could see me as well. I hope to convince her to come soon to Montreal, as it's super hard to travel with the 2 kids alone.

We headed to Boca Raton Town center, my grandmother and mother went to Macy's to get some make-up for my grandmother and while they were there, we did a quick tour of the high-end mall (blah) and decided to sit outside California Pizza Kitchen and have an appetizer and 2 rounds of beer. The boys napped in their respective strollers, which was nice, and gave me a chance to catch up with Sherrie.

Dinner was delicious and Sean behaved for the most part. The kid at the table next to us had a DVD player with the show Skipper (cartoon) which I just learend about, and they let Sean watch too. Turns out the boy is a month older than Sean. The waitress goofed on Sean's pizza, which we ordered first so he'd get it quicker, yet it came about 10 minutes after our meals, and I had to send it back. My sister's meal came wrong as well. Turns out both Sean & Amy's meals were free in the end.

We let Sean toss (Canadian) pennies into the pond and make a wish. It was cute watching him get excited throwing them in!

After dinner we came back to the condo, transferred Mack to the playpen, he was fast asleep and now I'll get Sean ready for bed.

Sounds like you had fun. Also sounds like you're going to need a vacation from your vacation :) Hope you get a chance to catch up on rest.

That's the only good thing about Winter: good sleeping weather!

Have you tried putting bibs into a mesh bag for the wash? They might do OK if they are contained.
