Same Old Same Old


Not too much excitement today. I am still sick with a nasty head cold or allergies. Don't really know which, but I am leaning more towards head cold lately. I have been super lazy since my head feels like a 100 pound bowling ball this whole week. I didn't take a shower and get out of my pjs until late afternoon. Well I took a bath but still stayed in my pjs. I know Mom, I am breaking the one rule you gave me before I got married.

My Mom's rule was that I should always take a shower and put on something nice before Reiggin came home from work.

After Reiggin got home from work, I decided to take Virginia to the apartment pool. I get her all dressed and get her lil swimmers diapers on and manage to get her bathing suit on. That was a little bit of a challenge. I was going to let her just carry her life vest up to the pool, but she wanted to wear it. So here we go out and down the stairs and up the sidewalk with our bag and all our goodies to the pool. Virginia was super excited. Really, I think she was just glad to have her ball and be outside. We get halfway up the walk to the pool when a little boy asks if we are heading to the pool. I said yes. I mean, really, where else would we be going with our bathing suits on and a life vest on. Sadly, he informs us that the pool is closed today because of construction work being done to the office. I was not a happy mom at all. I manage to turn Virginia around and head back to the apartment. I didn't take a picture of her face when we got back to the apartment and tell her that we have to change clothes that the pool is closed. But just imagine the most sad face ever and that is what Virginia looked like. But it was for good because even if the pool was open we wouldn't have been able to swim for long. Once we got back in, a lightening storm started.

Luckily, we had brand new crayons to break in. This made Virginia happy along with Curious George on TV. So the world was all good again in her eyes. For me, I just relaxed the rest of the night and enjoyed a banana pudding milkshake from Cookout. I mean, if you're going to be sick, might as well be sick with a banana pudding milkshake in one hand and a tissue in the other.

I'm enjoying the posts. Keep them coming. I do have a concern about your comment that MOST days you just don't feel like taking a shower. Come on girl...act like an adult for God's sake. We adults shower just about everyday of the week...I don't know, it seems to help with the smell.

Ok let me correct my statement. I don't feel like taking a bath everyday but I do take a bath everyday. No worries Lisa I am smelling just fine. Promise!

Well I'm disturbed by the underwear & no bra comment. I mean really, those bits of info can be left out. I think I threw up in my mouth...

Sorry, girls. There's no filter on Kathy. Usually I edit these posts and delete out the crap she really shouldn't tell. I missed this one.
