What's Up Wednesday

I've been meaning to post a Weekend Rewind. I normally blog while pumping, but I'm really into this book right now and haven't been able to get into a book since pre-Dex so I'm going with the book.  Anyway, it's Wednesday, and even though it was a three day weekend, Wednesday evening seems a bit late in the week to do a weekend rewind. 

What we're eating this week. So far this week we've had BrewDog (the boys were in town!) and cheeseburgers.  Up next includes Chipotle Chicken Bowls with Cilantro Lime Quinoa, turkey nachos, more burgers (or brats), and Teriyaki Chicken Kabobs (I purchased a marinade, but I think I'll go with this one instead). 

What I'm reminiscing about. When Dex was an itty-bitty baby. He pretty much has full neck control now and I've always thought that beingable to hold your head up is the thing that doesn't make you an itty-bitty baby anymore. 

What I'm loving. Summer is finally here! It really makes everything so much better. I'm also so excited that I'm into reading again! 

What we've been up to. We spent last weekend doing yard work and both mom and dads and our house. The boys were home and a chainsaw was procured so they went to town on our very overgrown backyard (the previous owner didn't believe in trimming the landscaping). While the guys were doing that, the kids were swimming (in the backyard since the View can't seem to open on schedule anymore). 


What I'm dreading. Folding all the laundry. All of it.  I have maybe a single basket of dirty laundry and five baskets of clean laundry.  The kids don't actually have any folded clothes in their drawers. I meant to take a picture of it for y'all last night because I think everyone should be more transparent on what their house really looks like, but I got distracted ironing Monkey's Perler Beads cat

What I'm working on. Potty training and poopy training (we've separated the two) GMac.  He'll pretty much stay dry all day (and naps and night) but we do have to put him on the potty (which he will throw a fit about) since he won't tell us, but he will not poopy in the potty or tell us he has to poopy.  I'm seriously thinking he'll have to start school late this year. Also, folding laundry. 

What I'm excited about. The pool opening. My flowers growing. Reading my book. 

What I'm watching/reading.  I've started watching Friends in the evenings after C goes to bed but before I'm ready to pump and feed Dex one last time.  I've probably seen most, if not all, of Friends, but I've never watched it in order and never watched it on Netflix.  And as I stated up top, I'm reading The Endless Beach which is a sequel to The Cafe by the Sea which I read last year, but had a very hard time remembering in my current stage of postpartum-ness.  

What I'm listening to. Nothing. C used my phone to mow a few weeks ago and couldn't believe I didn't have any podcasts loaded.  My commute is 7 minutes and that's the only time I have kid-free and I feel like I need a bit longer of a stretch to really get into a podcast.  So instead I listen to sports radio in the car. 

What I'm wearing. Still maternity pants :( I reached the point about a month ago where I can no longer eat whatever and look like I'm losing weight so now the struggle is real (especially given I'm in Mark and Abby's wedding in two months). I'm working on cutting out coke, then mochas (but not both at the same time) and also trying to either walk every day with mom or get on the bike (but nothing strenuous until I'm getting more sleep at night). 

What I'm doing this weekend. Monkey will be headed to Grandma and Grandpa Elseas house so we're going to try to do something special and fun with GMac (we'll tote Dex with us too). If it's warm enough we'll join the pool. 

What I'm looking forward to next month. Having Monkey home during the week, playing outside in the mornings, spending the afternoons at the pool, wine on the deck at night, basically everything that is Summer. 

What else is new. Dex (sort of - I had to settle him a few times) from 11:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. this morning without eating in between! Sound the trumpets!
