End of Week Wrap-up

This should be short.  Because I can't remember anything out of the ordinary that we've done this week.  Vacuuming.  Meals.  Diapers.  Nap-times.  Dinner.  Bed.  Then repeat.  Over.  And Over.  And Over.    

Maybe I should call it week-end wrap up.  

We (meaning 'The Man') filed our taxes.  Woo-hoo!  Pretty exciting.  Oh, and we fired our tax guy.  That's an awesome story.  Let's just say, our tax return refund money we'll get this year won't be sufficient enough to cover our bill for back-taxes for 2009.  I LOVE financial set-back surprises, don't you? 

I finished a project that I've been putting off for a few weeks.  Remember that surprise I mentioned I was going to...mention?  Well, it begins Monday.  And I'll tell you ALL about it.  Later.  

Friday we walked to the ice-cream store which we haven't done in a long time.  I've missed that tradition.  And it was the first time we took 'The Kid' inside.  And shared.  He's getting old enough now to recognize when he's missing out on a good thing.   

We also began a MasterPiece Theater series that every girlfriend I know has been talking about.  

A few episodes into it and I can understand why it's addicting.  Though I'm a little nervous.  I hate starting these things.  Then I get involved.  Then stressed.  And I can't let go!  Anyway, it's something new 'The Man' and I have started.  And I love that he'll watch it with me.  And he seems to enjoy it.  

Today, Saturday, I went to the Farmer's Market.  I swear it gets busier and busier.  A very good thing.  Just not so good for parking.  Anyway, tons of produce and...

...these.  Mmmm.  

'The Kid' LOVES them.  Here he is at 4:55 p.m.

And here he is at 4:55 p.m.  I'm pretty sure he didn't even bother chewing.  

We took a trip to Andrea's Fish Market today as well.  There's something so comforting about a hot bowl of clam chowder on a crisp sunny day at the beach.  And let's not forget the fish and chips either.  'The Man' and I have decided though that going seldom makes the trip more of a treat.  And probably better on our cholesterol levels as well.

And the latest in EGG news.  ANOTHER double yolk-er.  I don't know why I find this so exciting.  Or maybe just fascinating.  And all our hearts go out to the poor dear that pushed that sucker out.  OUCH.

Another odd, but fascinating of the other hens keeps laying these goober eggs.  I scrubbed this baby forever, until I realized it's part of the egg.  That can't feel good coming out either.  It's like the elephant man egg.


  1. You know what we found out this week? Vinegar dissolves the shells on eggs. It's pretty fun to see a "naked egg".
    And teach that kid how to chew! I know, I know, easier said than done, especially when strawberries are involved. : )

  2. Ya, I've seen the naked egg thing. It kind of creeps me out. I prefer it's tidy little shell. :) This kid swallows almost everything whole. He stuffs his mouth as full as he can and then GULP. I don't know how he can do that. Drives me nuts though.
