This very chill weekend brought to you by exposure to someone with COVID 😱 My sis came down with it after seeing us all last week, so we were on the lookout for symptoms but so far, so good. Luckily, we had basically no plans this weekend and could just stay home. Sometimes I think back to the “before times,” when we did not have a kid or a pandemic to deal with and how I HAD to have the perfect weekend plans. Now I’m just living moment to moment and am happy to do anything or nothing. This is a much gentler existence 😊
It was feeling like a sleepy and cozy Friday after a 5 AM wake up call and some snow throughout the day, so we ordered in from a new spot near us and it turned out to be really good! We definitely did not need yet another pizza option, but no arguments here! Dempsey is a big fan of cheese curds and can you blame him??
“Helping” Mom make pancakes is really just eating flour from a teaspoon 😂 We bought strawberries this week and they tasted too good for being out of season 🤔 I also maybe made half the batch of butternut pancakes before I realized I’d forgotten to add the butternut, oops!
The rest of the afternoon involved a run for me, a nap for Demps, and some doubloons for Andi, apparently. Joey and Dempsey also took a trip to the office real quick and then someone would NOT go down for their afternoon nap. Fine by me because we watched a bunch of old school Disney song clips on YouTube and he was unusually chill — cannot get this child to stay still most of the time! We’ve had a few rough bed and naptimes lately, so we are going to try to transition to one nap. Wish us luck!
Vegan mac and cheese for dinner, then after Demps went down for bed, we watched Eternals and…. definitely not good but also not the worst thing I’ve ever seen. I feel like I’ve definitely watched some Avengers movies that were more convoluted. Mainly, I felt like Chloé Zhao was entirely wrong for this project. Her films are about the beauty of the natural world and interiority. And they are NOT funny. I love that about her style but it doesn’t quite fit the Marvel mold. Watching this felt how people who think ALL Marvel films are totally stupid probably feel all the time 😂 However, there is both a BTS reference AND a BTS song in this movie, so 5 stars, I loved it 😋😋😋
Just some Sunday scenes, that include Dempsey and a Mardi Gras dog — I barked it at him the day before and he did NOT like it, but they seem to be friends now 😂 — long overdue breakfast sandwiches from The Wooden Spoon, thee single biggest sweet potato I’ve ever seen and a sad sad Cowboys game… Dempsey and I were running all around the living room, giggling and playing during that game, so I can’t say we were too sad, but Joey was! Made us all burrito bowls for dinner and even though he was eating bites of all those things while I was making them, all together in a bowl at the table, Demps was not having it 🤷♀️ These toddlers just want to keep you guessing!
Hope you had a good weekend!
