Not a Night Owl Anymore!

Monday I had a moment of DUH! I got up and fed Virginia breakfast and decided to take her up to the pool. I got us both dressed and bags packed and even pulled out the big stroller to push her in. Thinking if she threw another fit at least I can just put her in the stroller and not carry her the whole way home.


So off we went walking up to the pool. We get all the way up there and the close sign was on the gate. I ask the mainetance guy if the pool was going to be closed all day long.  He informs me the pool is closed every Monday. I just hit myself on the head, because I do remember seeing that piece of paper with the pool schedule at one point. Luckily I quickly turned Virginia around and headed to the playground.

I made up for the disappointed Monday pool trip by taking her today for two hours. Two hours at the pool with a 2 year old feels like eternality sometimes. But I was happy she didn't throw a fit this time when we left. Once we got back home and had our baths and I put Virginia down for her nap. I realized that I am not the night owl I use to be. Last night Reiggin convinced me to stay up til 1:30am watching Dexter. Of course Virginia still got up at her usual 7:00am. So the early pool trip and little sleep was catching up with me.

I pretty much have been sluggish all day long. I also made the mistake of pushing Virginia in the stroller in the apartment. So all day long she has been climbing into the stroller and whining for me to push her around. I tried to show her how to push her baby dolls around and that lasted about 5 minutes. I think Virginia is trying out for the role of my personal trainer.

Tuesdays are always long days for me. Reiggin closes and doesn't get home til late. So it is just Virginia and myself all day long. But we do entertain ourselves with cartoons and crayons. Oh and she has become my Pretty Little Liars and Make it or Break it tv buddy.


Tonight as I am doing my usual web surfing, I came across a banana ice cream recipe on my mother's website. So I knew I had two riped bananas in the freezer. So I said what the hell lets try this. First it is very hard to peel a frozen banana. Once I figured out to microwave the bananas for a few minutes enough to soften them up to be able to peel them. I threw all the ingredients in the blender. After a total of maybe 5 minutes I had a mug full of yummy banana ice cream. The cinnamon for me was a little to strong so I would use less cinnamon. Also I added some honey to the ice cream as well. Overall it was a quick and easy recipe.
