And, this week...

 So Monday, was our kick butt around the house day.  Shawn left for California nice early Monday morning and the kids and I were ready to get the house nice and clean.  We spent most of the day Monday working so yesterday and today have pretty lazy.

When Shawn is gone, we always try to keep in touch so we are texting, calling, and face-timing all the time.

Yesterday we played so video games and then went for a walk downtown with my in-laws.  They also bought us dinner at one of my favorite local restaurants out here, Wheatfields.  It was so good, and it was really nice seeing the family.  My only problem is that time flew by too quickly and before I knew it, it was after eight and we were saying our goodbyes.

Last night, when we went to bed, I stayed up and watched Breaking Bad until just late enough to see Shawn come home.  It was so super late and then we woke up really super early to say goodbye even though the girls slept through it.  Today, I'm so exhausted that every muscle in my body aches.  I've tried to nap on the couch, but the kids don't like that idea.  The kids are obviously sleepy because they are bouncing off the walls and furniture, misbehaving, and fighting.  It's only wearing me out even more.

We've spent so much of the day playing video games again today that I finally made Ben turn them off and we've been watching last night's 19 Kids and Counting.  I think I'm getting us Wendy's tonight for dinner and an early bed time for all of us, myself included.  Hopefully we'll be more rested tomorrow since we have Ben's preschool open house in the morning and then we're going to Kansas City in the evening.  Also, Shawn comes home tomorrow and I don't want the kids grumpy for him.

In other news, Rylie has been eating baby food lately.  She likes her veggies.  Squash, peas, and carrots specifically, as well as her rice cereal.  She does not bananas or green beans though.

Alright, I'm off to read a little and go get some dinner.

Also, if you haven't read Wonder by R. J. Palacio, (this is the book I'm reading) I highly recommend it.  Especially if you are a parent.  This is a "children's book" so know that the vocabulary is very elementary for an adult, but I really think the story is one that will stick in my thoughts forever and ever.
