First off. Happy Mothers Day to all you mommas out there. Have the most best and fanatical day.
How's your week been? It flew by for me. There was just a lot of running around which always makes me feel less accomplished then I want to be although I did accomplish a lot. We are always getting stuff done. The week contained a lot of firsts of warm weather season. The mr got his first haircut/ear hair trim. We went on our first fishing/me sitting and playing with rocks excursion. Did the first lawn mow. Had our first BBQ. Ate the first rhubarb. Spring time is here and summer is just rolling it's way on in. Hopefully not to fast though because I really enjoying the not to hot weather that's been going on. It keeps me not cranky.
You know what else makes me cranky? Lost vacuum attachments. I swear I have spent way too much freaking time looking high and low for the head that I use to vacuum the floor. I don't know what could have possible happened to it and it is driving me crazy. And it's really hindering my life because I vacuum around the house at least once a day (cat hair and dirt just seem to pile up) and that missing head is the one that I use. Now I am forced to use the thin attachment head which make vacuuming take way to long and I am getting so frustrated and I just needed you to know that. Also if you have seen me in the past week and I seem like I might be in a bad mood, I was most likely thinking about the vacuum head.
Friday was the BBQ. We had the whole family over for a "just because . And we probably won't see each other on Mothers day thing" and it went good. Everyone got along, the littles dug large hole in the lawn looking for diamonds and ran the scooters all over the neighborhood, the mr toasted (burnt) marshmallow with his flame thrower, and I ran around making sure no one was eating meat anywhere other then the designated meat areas. At the end of the night when my house was thoughtfully trashed and when everyone went home, the mr and I walked the left over hotdogs to the woods and threw them to the animals. I wonder if it squirrels eat hotdogs.?.
Spent Saturday slowly vacuuming the mess with the skinny attachment. Gurrrrr.
What is in store for today. Oh, I don't know, most likely hanging out in the garden , maybe a bike ride, definitely either finding the vacuum attachment (although after the house clean yesterday, I am pretty sure it is lot forever) or buying a new one, and returning the giant stack of library books that are just about overdue. Maybe I'll bike to the library and get a new book and then some coffee and go sit by the lake and read. Yeah, that sounds like a good idea.
