It’s been two weeks since I posted because last weekend Jason and I went out of town to the Shawshank Reunion Anniversary events. I posted some pics on FB and IG so I won’t post again, but it was a really fun time. When we got home I took Gage to a back to school breakfast at the church down the street and then we met friends at the Wizard of Oz musical at a local college. I’m looking forward to a quieter weekend!
Fave of the week
Highlights of the week…Before Gage started 1st grade I took him on a cruise along the Cuyahoga River and a bit of Lake Erie and told him we should make it a yearly thing. He’s held me to it and last year and this year we invited Dad and Grandma too. I leave them alone for 10 minutes and this is what Jason has done to his hair. The first day of school went well and he’s a fan of his new teachers.
Could’ve been better…I’m not sleeping well. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Gage will get a 72 hour video EEG in September. The doctor recommended that I continue sleeping in the same room with him. So, the last 3+ weeks Gage has moved into our bed and real sleep is elusive. The first week was fine, but the 3-5 hours of sleep is starting to wear on me. I’m not 25 anymore!
Finished reading... (review)
Recommended kids book of the week… Gage and I both loved this pictorial history of how NYC’s Central Park came to be.
Continued reading... It’s my morning devotional book and I’m really liking it.
On the big screen…I’m no Quentin Tarantino fan, but this was so different. I actually thought it was boring some of the time, not something I’ve ever said about a Tarantino film. Obviously this was Jason’s pick.
On the small screen…This week we received $5 cash in the mail from Nielsen telling us that they were interested in talking to us about becoming a Nielsen family. Jason and I are still laughing. Four nights this week for a total of four episodes of Justified on Amazon Prime. That’s it. Gage has watched a few episodes on Spongebob and that has been the total of our household TV viewing. I’m not sure we’re Nielsen material but I appreciate the $5.
Plans for the weekend…We have a few good options for Sunday, but will most likely go with Big Bounce America for Gage.
