One way or the other Friday feels prefer it has extra that means now that I am not going to be posting on Saturdays and Sundays. It is not likely going to alter much–I nonetheless need to do my Friday Night time Pictures posts–but it feels totally different someway.
I would made plans to go to a city-wide storage sale this morning and I used to be *so* excited to go! The pandemic form of ruined storage sale-ing for the previous few years and I’ve missed going. Town-wide gross sales are the most effective as a result of, relying on the road, you possibly can simply stroll from one sale to the subsequent. Saturday mornings are often the most effective time to go as a result of that’s when most individuals have their gross sales; however this city-wide one began this morning.
I used to be bummed, then, when Eli’s orthopedist appointment was at 8:15 this morning. The appointment was clearly extra vital, so I instructed my mother I wasn’t going to have the ability to go to the storage gross sales. Nonetheless, Jerry (bless his coronary heart!) stated he’d be glad to take Eli to his appointment this morning (Jerry acquired off work at 6:00 AM, so he often sleeps proper when he will get dwelling). He stated it might make him really feel good to take Eli since I am the one which often does the appointments, and he actually wished me to go along with my mother and father. I used to be so grateful!
Eli had his finger x-rayed once more, and we have been in a position to clearly see the break:
The orthopedist stated that there’s a chip that broke off (which you’ll see within the x-ray) and he taped Eli’s index and center finger collectively and he is hoping it can heal that manner. He needs to see Eli once more in two weeks for an additional x-ray. I am crossing my fingers (haha) that it is going to be okay! However the physician stated no sports activities for 4 weeks–which is the remainder of the baseball season. Eli’s fearful he’ll lose his place as catcher on the group for subsequent yr. I really feel actually unhealthy for him–he nonetheless goes to the video games to help his group, however he stated it is laborious watching another person play his place.
In the meantime, I discovered just a few issues on the storage gross sales that I used to be enthusiastic about! First, I acquired this set of armchairs. I actually do not *want* chairs, however I could not assist it–I like them! And they’re extraordinarily comfy. I have not determined the place to place them but, although. I’ll have to maneuver some issues round.
The perfect half? I acquired each chairs and the ottoman for $40! We had them at the back of my dad’s truck, and several other folks commented whereas we have been out that they actually preferred them.
My mother really wished them too, so she stated if I can not discover a place for them, she’ll purchase them from me. I am decided to discover a spot, although! Estelle was on there in about two seconds flat, and she or he hasn’t moved ever since.
At one sale, I used to be so excited once I was rifling by an enormous container of garments and I discovered a number of Lululemon items–the garments have been listed as $2 a chunk, and for Lululemon, that was a steal! They have been in nice form, and in my dimension, so I ended up with about 12 items. After I went to pay, nonetheless, the girl stated, “Oh, these aren’t $2–the Lululemon stuff is $10 a chunk.” I could not consider it! My mother had even double checked along with her once I was digging by the field of garments, and she or he’d stated $2. So, I gave the whole lot again and did not purchase any of it.
At one other sale, I discovered a ton of Mr. Potato Head stuff. This may increasingly sound odd, however I wished to get it for Riley. I haven’t got very many toys right here for Luke and Riley to play with after they come over, however Riley LOVES taking part in with the Mrs. Potato Head set that I’ve (she would not have one herself). After I acquired dwelling and began going by all of it, I seen that there have been some Star Wars items in there! Jerry hasn’t seen them but, however I do know he’ll flip out when he does, haha.
I am undecided if I ought to maintain onto the whole lot for when Riley comes to go to or if I ought to put all of it in a field and mail it to her. It is all the time enjoyable to get mail, however it might be good to play it along with her.
I additionally purchased one thing utterly random on a whim–I noticed it and thought it might be enjoyable for the household to play:
I needed to ask Noah if it was even suitable with Jerry’s X-box–I’ve no clue! And I am certain Noah and Eli have by no means seen Wheel of Fortune or Jeopardy of their lives, however they’ll be taught 😉
I can not keep in mind what I’ve posted this week or not–I am certain I wrote about a few of these issues on my “Weekend Happenings” submit. However anyway, we acquired along with Dave and Renee final weekend to play Euchre and it was so enjoyable! It’d been a very long time since we performed with them. Dave and I have been companions and we received each video games. It was enjoyable to meet up with Renee, too.
I believe I’ve determined to not coach cross nation this fall. My life would not appear to be getting any much less overwhelming and I actually do not need to decide to something but. Renee is not certain if she needs to do it both, so we’ll see what occurs.
I wanted to get out of the home yesterday–everyone was in such a unfavorable temper and I simply could not take it! So I ended up going to the library to jot down my weblog submit. I hoped for peace and quiet, nevertheless it was form of loud in there. And so they had a number of home windows open, so it was breezy and chilly. Subsequent time, perhaps I will simply exit for a stroll once I want some area!
I really moved spots 3 times to attempt to discover a quiet/non-breezy spot, however no such luck. I simply ended up ending my submit and going again dwelling.
Nonetheless, a e book that I requested had arrived! A reader prompt to me that I learn ‘Eat & Run’ by Scott Jurek (a badass vegan ultrarunner) as a result of she had discovered it actually motivating to get out and run. I am actually in want of that motivation, so I requested the e book on the library. I want they’d the Kindle model, however the hardcover was all they’d. I’ve but to start out it–hopefully this weekend.
Yesterday, I used to be noticing how Duck’s pupils have been SO razor thin–and simply how fairly he appeared in general–so I took an image of him.
Kroger just lately had these luggage of three tri-colored bell peppers on sale (often they’re about $6 and so they have been on sale for about $2) and so they appeared actually good! I purchased two luggage and so they sat within the fridge for just a few days–I wasn’t certain what to make with them. Lastly, I minimize all of them up and stir-fried them with do-it-yourself fajita seasoning. Then I rehydrated some soy curls (with fajita seasoning within the water) and added these to the skillet.
And at last, I seen these flowers up on our bookshelf in the lounge and I had no concept the place they got here from. After I acquired nearer, I seen that they weren’t flowers–they have been Legos! Noah acquired the package (I believe it was one thing he’d wished for Christmas) and he lastly put them collectively. I like how they give the impression of being!
And that is all I’ve acquired. I will be again to jot down on Monday! Have an awesome weekend. xo
