Sunday, Coach and I took Curly to lunch as part of our ongoing 2-meals-out-per-kid-solo-a-year effort. Afterwards, the three of us went to the pool for a bit.
Before that (but after my most frustrating ever day): Last week on Thursday (the day Reg's extended EEG study ended) I hosted the moms and tots that I will sit for this school year. Sunday I went for my every-other day 4.5 mile slow-ass run. I spent over an hour at my folks' house while Dad went to mass. I came home and deep cleaned my bathroom, did laundry, and got some writing done. That's when Coach and I treated Curly to lunch.
It felt good to relax.
This was the day that we ended up corralling all of the kids and going to dinner - eating lunch and dinner out? We don't even do that when we are on vacation. It wasn't ideal but when we started to feel like people would be home for dinner - we were like, OK, let's do this in case this is our last chance before everyone leaves for college.
I took videos of Curly and Coach playing volleyball in the pool. The background music in a few clips was awesome. I'm sharing all 3 clips. The first one I'm posting has crappy background music, but it's the funniest one. I was sitting right under the pool speaker.
