sunday morning catch ups.

/1/ Valentine's Day 2017...the worst one ever. Not because there were no flowers or chocolates (not into those kind of stuff anyway), but because I accidentally drove out of the garage with my minivan sliding door still open. Yeah...I don't know what was wrong with me either... After the incident, I kept on replaying it in my head and thinking about all the what ifs. What if I didn't take Anna to school that morning (Luke was about to take her), what if Luke didn't reverse my car in the day prior (then I wouldn't be out of my routine), if if if! In the end, there is no one to blame except me. I wasn't careful. We already spent $1k to fix the van, and now will spend around the same to fix the garage. I wish we could just get rid of the two garage doors and covert it to one, since this isn't the first time I hit the garage 😞, but it's just too much money. I am no longer as depressed and sad as the first 48 hours, and life goes on, but #sorryhubs.

^^There goes our vacation fund.^^

/2/ A lot of solo parenting this month once again while Luke was away for work. Luckily, my commute to work isn't all bad every single day. Some days I get a break in traffic and then it doesn't seem too bad at all :)

Now that the kids are older, it's no longer just a one way conversation when Luke calls. We use Google Duo to stay in touch and this is him showing us New Mexico outside of his hotel room.

/3/ Before I crashed into the garage on Valentine's Day, I made Will a "heart" banana. That was the extent of our Valentine's Day. Next year I want to plan ahead and make the kids some pink foods, haha. Oh, remember how we used to be creative with our school Valentine's, like this? Well, no one has time for that nonsense anymore...store-bought FTW this year!

^^breakfast of champions^^

/4/ Will said he wanted to go to a museum so we went to the National Museum of Natural History (I think the kids spent more time playing Pokemon Go around the National Mall though)....

and got pho at our favorite place on the way back (the best part of the outing).

/5/ Anna got the flu and missed 4 days of school....so far. I hope she gets well enough for school on Tuesday. She is miserable and coughs nonstop. Yet I also feel like she's been so dramatic about it so my patience is running thin. Illness sucks and I hope we are at the end of the tunnel!

/6/ Family movies: Moana, Trolls and Gremlins.

/7/ Other February happenings: DIY clings, piano tuning, glow stick bath, new blender = lots of smoothies, Will reading this Berenstain Bears book with help, and this beautiful pink sky.

  1. Funny how all these nice little moments in our lives get overshadowed by stupid little bumps that kinda wrinkle things up. Sure, we're a few bucks short now fixing the van and garage, but all in all, life ain't bad these days. We just need to get over this pandemic and get healthy again. Then we can enjoy all this nice warm weather!
