march twenty-six

Mack likes to crawl under things and this morning he decided to sit under his leap frog musical bench. It was too cute to not take a picture!

While my cleaning lady was here today, I take care of folding the laundry which took all morning. There was just so much of it! I just don't understand how the laundry is never ending. Especially since most of us in this house (even Mack these days) only wears 1 outfit all day, and pj's at night. I'm confused. Where does all this laundry come from??

This afternoon I went out to see about ordering some magazines at my local newstand place. They told me that if I brought in the barcodes to the magazines I was looking for they'd be able to order them for me monthly/quarterly, or as often as they are out. So we'll see if they can do that for me. I brought in scans of the covers to 4 different magazines, and we'll see if he can get them.

I picked up some groceries while out today and one of the items was mini cucumbers. They are soooo good. I picked up 2 packages since they were on sale, and each package comes with 6 mini cucumbers. I've already finished off almost both packages. They are soooo good. What a healthy snack too!

Tonight for dinner I tried a new recipe. We tried a stew but in the oven instead of how I usually make stew in my slow cooker. It was actually not so bad. Jamie's request is that next time it tastes a little bit less tomato-y. No problem. Basically I'd taken a recipe off the web for making stew in the oven and changed around a few things here or there to our liking for spices, vegetables, etc. I've become a little daring in the kitchen since seeing the nutritionist. And no one in my house is complaining, seeing as though they're getting a home cooked meal almost every night of the week.

Today Sean didn't push or hit anyone at daycare, but he wasn't the best listener during the morning. He decided he didn't feel like participating in circle time, so he was a bit rambunctious. All I have to say is that I'm glad he didn't push anyone today. It's a start.

Jamie went out tonight to watch the Habs game with some friends, so by the time I put both kids to bed, I watched the 3rd period of the game (2-0 at the start of 3rd period and we ended up winning in overtime 3-2, did you see Saku's awesome goal to end the game?).

I then caught up on some tv shows and knit on my mother-in-law's vest. It's coming along. I really want to get it to her before the Jewish holidays the second week of April.

I'll leave you with this cute picture of Mack trying to knock over the garbage can (the green on in the bathroom is for recycling). My son has an obsession with the flip lid on the garbage can... he likes to play with it, and then knock down the garbage can. Let's just say I usually try to keep the bathroom door shut, though he still manages to find his way in there.

I know what you mean about the laundry- it is OUT of control!!!! Mack is too cute! And fear not, Sean will move away from the pushing thing. We had a biting phase, a pushing phase and now a "talking back" phase and the later passed (and we hope the last one will pass SOON).

OH my goodness. Mack in that last picture looks so like Sean. I'm noticing that you have two trouble makers too...

Ugh! Babies and kitties- they are in to everything!!!

I'm sure making your own meals is really helping you lose the weight, too. You can control exactly what goes into your food, right?
