So, our 4th weekend was pretty good. We went to the pool a ton. Sunday Chris woke Em up at 10 or so and took her into the cul-de-sac behind us. Evidently that’s when our neighbors were doing their party thing. I don’t actually know the couple that does it and evidently it’s all word of mouth, so I didn’t get word. 😛 Monday we went to the pool and one of Em’s friends that we’ve not seen all summer was there, so she had a ton of fun playing with her. We didn’t do much the rest of the day.
Yesterday we went pick up another free book from Barnes & Noble and then to Target to see if they had their school supplies out. They did. Once again this year, their supply of character backpacks was horrible. They had almost nothing fun. Em picked out this year’s model of what she had last year, except she got the pink one. Pink. I couldn’t believe it. I literally asked her about 20 times if she was sure. It is cute though. It’s got a monkey on it and it’s pink with different colored flowers. She got the lunch box that matches. In fact, it’s the exact same lunch box she got last year, just in different colors. We also managed to find all the stuff on her school list. Unfortunately when we got up to the counter, I realized I’d left my wallet in the pool bag. Frak. So we stuck our cart at customer service and went home to get it. We were going to do the library, but due to the delay, we just went home to do lunch. After that, we did the library and then came home. Em kept changing her mind about going to the pool, but she finally decided to go. So we did that for a while. A few of her friends from school were there, so she had fun. Then last night, she went to her best friend’s for ANOTHER sleepover. 🙂
Em’s had an earache for a week or so now. It didn’t seem to bother her a whole lot, so I took a “wait and see” attitude. But yesterday afternoon, it got a lot worse. Of course, she didn’t want to miss her sleepover. She seemed mostly okay and the sleepover’s in the neighborhood, so I went ahead and let her go. But I made a doctor’s appointment for this morning. We just got back a while ago. She’s got a bad ear infection. We got antibiotic ear drops and zithromax. She’s lying on the couch, watching The Prisoner of Azkaban right now.
My parents are coming this weekend to see if their dog and our dog are going to get along. My dad’s also going to help Chris replace the toilet in our bathroom. My mom wants to take Em back with her until I bring our dog to them on Thursday, but I think that’s entirely too long. So I’m going to suggest I bring Em over on Tuesday and then come back and get her on Thursday. So, hopefully Em can have another sleepover here on Monday. Anyway, we’re going out of town on that Friday and will be back Monday or Tuesday. THEN, it’s only a littler over a week until Em’s open house. And she’ll start school that next Monday. Where’s the summer gone??
