July DITL

I had plans this day to go to a free movie at a local theater and/or go to a playdate, but I'm nearly out of gas in my car and we don't get paid until the 1st (damn loooong pay period!) so I decide to stay home instead.

Warnings for kids in a tub and one nursing shot. Also, I promise I do have a husband and we did see him this day. He just never wants to be in the pictures.

My camera is downstairs when I wake up. Owen is already eating muffins and playing on the computer.

IMG_7613
Back upstairs Annabeth is still sprawled out on the bed.

IMG_7615b
Watch a couple youtube videos, including one from my good friend Jessica (on the left).

IMG_7616
She's up!

IMG_7620
Stinky butt needs a bath.

IMG_7624
Owen gets called up to get one too.

IMG_7628
Wash a load of clothes once the kids are clean.

IMG_7626
Annabeth entertains herself with the door stopper.

IMG_7629
Open all the blinds to get some sunlight in the house. Brandon has to leave for his first morning of physical therapy.

IMG_7631a
Unload the dishwasher and tackle the sink full of dishes.

IMG_7632
Once the morning "chores" are done I finally eat breakfast.

IMG_7633
Put the laundry in the dryer.

IMG_7636a
I finally get around to cleaning the washing machine.

IMG_7642a
Now that Annabeth is a better crawler I have to clean the floors more often.

IMG_7643
Husband calls (at 11:47am) and says he's on his way home so I get lunch started.

IMG_7644
Pop the ham and cheese pinwheels in the oven.

IMG_7649a
Eat lunch (and a Peanut Butter Truffle Brownie) while watching Psych.

IMG_7650
Laundry is dry so I fold it.

IMG_7651
Start a load of rugs since Annabeth peed on one before her bath this morning.

IMG_7652
I try to add a song to my iPhone, only to realize that I can't figure out how to do it.

IMG_7654
First nap for the teething monster. Brandon gets a call from work and has to leave earlier than normal.

IMG_7655
Owen and I color pictures while sister sleeps.

IMG_7656
Back to the laundry room to clean it since it's a mess. I add another victim to the Lost Sock Drawer.

IMG_7657a
Clean off the dining room table.

IMG_7662
Then add bills to the Budget Binder.

IMG_7668a
Baby Beth is awake and happy after her hour nap.

IMG_7671
Give her some "nums" as we call it in our house.

IMG_7672
Once she's done we head to the park!

IMG_7673
Owen is sad there are no other kids to play with, but he quickly gets over it.

IMG_7676
Love my baby-cakes.

IMG_7683
Working on pumping his legs. (I first wrote "pumpkin" his legs. Guess my mind's on Halloween since my mom and I were just talking about costumes earlier today.)

IMG_7686
Walking to the mailboxes we see pretty flowers growing out of someone's fence.

IMG_7689
Once we get home I clean out my messy car while Owen plays and Annabeth is still happy.

IMG_7692
Maybe if you didn't try to eat dirt out of the cracks in the cement I'd let you play on the ground, Annabeth!

IMG_7694a
One neighbor asked to play and the next thing I know all the neighbor kids are at our house.

IMG_7695
We go inside when all the kids leave and I offer to help clean the playroom.

IMG_7707a
Annabeth bangs on pots and "sings" into the microphone while we clean.

IMG_7708
Owen declares Movie Night! He picks Lilo & Stitch to watch first while I make dinner.

IMG_7712
Chicken sandwich (kids had nuggets), mac n cheese, green beans, and a nectarine.

IMG_7711a
Annabeth chows down. My little piggy ate a whole nugget and half of everything else.

IMG_7716
We play in the playroom until about 7:15, when the above happens. Owen gets sent to bed early and spends 10 minutes crying about a toothbrush he threw away a few days ago and 20 minutes asking to go back downstairs and promising that he'll be good and "never kick sister again" before finally calming down enough to go to sleep.

IMG_7721
Nurse Annabeth down once Owen's okay.

IMG_7723a
Now it's mama time so I eat ice cream and watch TV (Who Do You Think You Are? and America's Got Talent) until Brandon gets home around 9:45pm.

IMG_7727
Angry Baby is angry when I put her PJs and night diaper on.

IMG_7730
I conclude the evening by re-reading The Notebook since I'm trying to re-read all of Nicholas Sparks' books before his new one comes out in September.
