- My kids saw the allergist and pediatrician this week. Our youngest was successfully cleared of a strawberry allergy, which means no more yearly Epi-pen and between both doctors, we were sent home with samples of children’s Zyrtec, Aveeno sunscreen, and Qvar, which is an inhaled steroid used for asthma. The Qvar alone costs a $25 copay for us, so it was much appreciated!
- My mom watched the kids one day at the Grandma price of a few hugs and kisses.
- My husband and I went on a date to see a movie at a dinner and a movie place called Cinebistro. We saw The Glass Castle (excellent!) and used a local discount to get our dinner (the food was awful!).
- I took the kids to our neighborhood on the last day of summer vacation.
- Our zucchini plants seems to be trying to grow a couple more zucchini.
- I worked 8 hours yesterday and 2 hours Saturday and did not have to pay child care, since my husband was home.
- Now that we have started the school year, I have plans to work more than I have been doing in the past two years, especially since two kids are in FT school and the youngest will be in preschool two days.
- The kids’lunch boxes were looking pretty dreadful and I wondered if they could be cleaned well enough to keep using or if I needed to replace them. I scoured the internet and tried a few things. They are pretty sanitized even though there are a few dirty spots still. I plan on using a Tide Pen to see if those stubborn areas can be fixed. I also learned that you can put good quality lunch boxes in the washing machine (ours are Land’s End and Planetbox). I plan to toss them in once per week now.
- I cleaned out the vegetable crisper and had to throw out several things that went to the Great Compost Bin in the Sky.
- The kids and I ate lunch out twice last week.
