A Lazy Saturday at Home

The only activity that happened all day was Gideon’s swim lesson.  We had a really good talk about listening to Mr. Marty and watching and listening.  He did really great today…so proud and so excited to watch him progress!

All three boys took turns playing a new computer game called: Slime Rancher.  They all enjoyed it, but since Josiah had watched 28 YouTube videos he knew the most about it.  Even Gideon caught on with Josiah’s guidance quite quickly.

We watched all three movies: Inside Out, Pixels and most of Jurassic World  Thanks to Redbox we got the third movie for $1.00 and then I signed up for the email so my next movie rental is free!

I spent the day blogging.  I hit my 100th blog post today and have posted from January through April 30th.  Starting on May next and I want to make sure I don’t forget to post the current days so I don’t have to go back and try to remember what happened or rely on my headache journal or FB.  I can kill two birds with one stone  with posting my update on my blog and being able to share it on FB!

Love, love, love this picture of Dan and Gideon!  We were all on our electronics and watching movies for almost the entire day.  But I especially love that Gideon is wearing his party shirt and his under wear 🙂  After our Anniversary celebration last night, he decided he was going to have a birthday party for himself and that I was to call Douglas, Chase, Lakelan and Alyssa.  I asked for their phone numbers which then turned into him learning my phone number for emergencies…but no party!  I don’t think he understood in the end still why we couldn’t just invite them over today.  Oh well!  We have a plan to get some parents to give us a call to have a play date 🙂

I am so glad that I took the migraine cocktail yesterday, both so I could have a good anniversary evening, but it also stopped the cycle of the migraine, so that I could enjoy my Saturday at home with my family.  And even though I stayed up until 4:30 am last night I was up by 9:00 am today and never took a nap…the true sign of a good day.   It was only in the last hour or so that my eyes started to be strained and I felt some tension taking hold at my temples, but then I remembered the alarm going off for my 3:00 pm for my scheduled muscle relaxer, turning it off and never getting up to take the med.  So I just took the Robaxon and did a little Ethyl Chloride spray just so I can finish up this post 🙂  Priorities!!!

My URL…oops

I was sharing my new blog with my fellow blogger and super grammar aficionado Mindy when she discovered that I had used an incorrect plural in naming my blog. However to my defense I did create the blog and purchase the domain name at 2:00am. http://www.myfamiliesnewnormal.com No going back now. I could change the name on my blog but the URL had been purchased. But I was able to go back and change the title on my blog to “my family’s new normal” Oops! Oh well! I will always remember the laugh I got out of discovering I had used the wrong plural form of family. And thank you Mindy for catching it!!!
