Weekends Come and Go

Another Monday another weekend has come and go. Hope everyone had a good weekend. Ours was interesting but good.

Friday Mike picked up #babybigtruck from school and when they got home #babybigtruck was crying and saying that her ear hurt. She settled down I looked at her ear and she went about her merry little way and spent some time outside.


While we were outside Mike was breaking down cardboard and cleaning up the garage and #babybigtruck got to play with her outside toys. She insisted on parking AS.CLOSE.AS.POSSIBLE to Mama’s truck. After we came in and had a quick dinner I decided that we needed to get some work done in the nursery. I picked up a cube cubby storage thing for her closet and shelves came in from Target that I ordered.


We put the cube cubby storage thing together and #babybigtruck made sure to help. Mike also hung the shelves and I finally got to put up the mason jars I found on Etsy.


Next project is to hang the curtains which we have but we are waiting on the curtain rod and tie backs to come in. Can’t wait to get it all set up. Mike still has some work that he needs to do before the room is totally done. I can not wait for it all to be done.

We put #babybigtruck to bed and called it a night shortly there after ourselves. About an hour after I put #babybigtruck to bed she woke up hysterical and was pulling at her ear and was saying it hurt again. I looked at her ear again and I noticed its as draining so I decided it was time to take her to the peds urgent care. Lo and behold she has an ear infection which is the first time she has had an ear infection since she had her tubes put in. She was put on an antibiotic and ear drops and she HATES them both. It is not fun at all trying to give her her meds.

Saturday we got up and it was raining and cold and nasty out. Mike had some side work to do and #babybigtruck and I hung out at home all day and relaxed after we got a workout in. Mike got home shortly before nap time so I let him put her down for a nap and I put myself down for a nap as well. It was great! When I got up I jumped in the shower and managed to shower uninterrupted which was glorious! By 4:30pm we were on our way to my mother’s house so she could watch #babybigtruck so Mike and I could go out to dinner for what we expect will be our last meal just us for a while. We also considered it our anniversary and my birthday dinner celebrations.

Sunday morning we got up and set out for church as per the usual. After church we came home for a bit so Mike could make his bean dip salsa because we had Life Group in the afternoon which is always a good thing. We have been studying the Gospel of John which coincides with our current series at church which is neat. We got home Sunday evening and just hung out at home for the rest of the night which was nice. #babybigtruck got a bath, Mike got himself ready for work, and I soaked my overly swollen feet in some epsom salt and warm water.

Another great weekend is in the books and here we are staring Monday in the face. It is gonna be a busy day for all of us. Mike will be at work all day and I have to take #babybigtruck to the dentist and I have a dentist appointment myself and tonight we both have bible study. I have a few things I want to try to get done this week after #babybigtruck goes back to school before she is home with me full-time and that is my goal for the week.


  Hugs, Nikki
