stuff and stuff

So there really isn't much interesting funny or witty going on these days.

I'm suffering from BBS.....Boring Blog Syndrome....or Balancing Bullshit Syndrome......or whatever

The short list:
1. Dad finishes radiation this week. They found another tumor but it's surface level so isn't a threat at this point and they will remove it after radiation is complete. Bummer......but glad it's surface level. The oncologist says that for this type of cancer you will spend the rest of your life chasing it. There really is no real remission. Big time bummer.

2. The minis and every other kid in North Carolina are enjoying the pure-t-shit out of that waterslide. Best.Purchase.EVER.

3. I've been having more knee pain lately.....blah blah.....two surgeries in the past.....blah....more therapy...blah blah.....2 cortisone injections and a new knee brace.....blah

4. 5 more days of school. I'm not sure yet if I'm excited. Maybe for the first week, but as soon as the chorus of "I'm bored" and "there's nothing to do" and "there's no one to play with" and "I don't want to go to camp" and "we're out of Popsicles again" starts.......I'm done. How many days till school starts back up?

5. Going on vacation next week. First vacation since before I was pregnant with Little One. WOW. I'm a little excited. Not sure how much there is to do in Hilton Head for little kids besides beach and pool.....but hey....I said beach and pool....isn't that plenty?

6. Is it really a vacation after you consider all the packing and preparation that comes along with taking a 7 year old and a 15 month old and a complaining husband (not really a beach kinda guy) on a 5 hour journey where you will set up the condo to be as much like home as possible and baby proof the entire place while unloading groceries and laundry detergent.......wait.......didn't I say we were going on vacation? This sounds like a lot of work to be considered "vacation".

7. I'm absolutely in love with the new Dasani Unsweetened Lightly flavored waters......Black Cherry, Strawberry Kiwi and my personal favorite Lime. Love love love

8. My pergola is almost done. So excited. It still needs staining, ceiling fans and lights......but it's built.....baby steps....

9. So this week it's Girl Scouts Bridging Ceremony (oh dear lawd...it's always something with those scouts)....Girls Scouts Carowinds trip, End of School music program, new school orientation and school tour, new school fundraiser and family picnic. And then I plan to hole up on my patio with a vat of wine and some of my new favorite dishes, the recipes for which I will share......in order to get my mind right for "vacation"

10. I plan to kill the cat soon if it doesn't stop waking me up at 3am to play or lick my face or scratch on the door or bring the mouse with the bell on it in my room to play.....etc. Not really, but a solution for this problem is an absolute must. I finally got the damn baby to sleep all night and now the DAMN cat won't leave me alone. I tried locking her in my office where her food and shitbox are but she tears up the carpet by the door trying to get out. She's beautiful and sweet but dumb as a box of rocks and annoying as they come in the middle of the night.

So what are you up to this week?
ETA......this is my pergola.....almost done!!

Hilton Head is kid friendly-we're heading there in a few weeks too! My dad is having a partial knee replacement this month so I sorta feel your pain-hopefully it'll get better soon. Have a fun vacay:)
