This week in ongoing home renos...
Trim and baseboards: This is why you took math, people. It is necessary for life after all. Funny, though, for all the math problems about fruit I never encountered one about using your mitre saw.
Also, setting it up on the kitchen table may not have been the best idea. See all the sawdust?? That took daaaayz to clean up!
Well, that's one way to find a stud...
...but my pantry shelves are sturdy as hell.
This week in little boy's hockey...
The season comes to an end with a tournament to determine division champs..Max is in net while I cheer him on trying to hide my anxiety! His sisters - who are usually crabby to have been dragged there - even got into the game and sang cheers at him.
The Penguins brought home the gold and the title of division champs :)
Max is at the center of this celebration hug.
Getting his medal.
These weren't from this game, but I haven't shared them yet.
This last one is my favourite :)
What a great experience this season has been for him. For me, not so much! But that's the sacrifice we make, right?
Which brings me to...
This week in random comments made to me...
This has been said to me twice this week by two completly unrelated people. Comparing their bad days to "Sara days".
1. My sister was telling me how she had to do all her running around with all of her kids in tow because her husband was out of town. She said, "I'm having a Sara day." I wasn't quite sure how to take that. I decided to be flattered, though I can't come up with a convincing reason why.
2. At hockey practice another mom was telling me how she was struggling that day because she had to manage her kids and all the gear herself. This woman, who rarely speaks to me, said, "I kept thinking, now I know how Sara feels!"
It's not always ideal dragging the whole troupe around. We refer to it as moving as a pack. Sometimes they're a pack of hungry wolves, and sometimes...well, they're usually a pack of hungry wolves who am I kidding.
While regaling people with horror stories of errand running with 4 little kids, I've often been asked, "Why do you take them?" This always catches me off guard....There's another option?? I thought it was illegal to lock them in cages while I go out on my own?
With that said, I did get out for a bit and Charlie sent me some texts...
This week in texts from a nine year old...
This week in meaningless holidays...
St. Patrick's Day I traditionally make a green meal for this kids. This year was green shamrock shaped pancakes, green apple slices, green grapes and green punch.
Oh, and green cake!
This week in sleepy babies...
Elly, as we know, can and will sleep anywhere:
Quinn, on the other hand, likes to cuddle up with a warm body:
On this day I was supposed to be cleaning, but chilling on the couch with sweetness breathing softly in your lap is much more enjoyable :)
This week in TRAGEDY!
Minnie my sweet little baby kitty has gone missing :(
She was the perfect kitty for us since we had her from birth and she was very well aclimated to life with abusive toddlers. We'll never be able to replace her unless we have another litter..which we won't. Our other cat is fixed.
This is the last picture we have of her.
and on a side note, the new sink is oodles of fun :)
