Heat Wave

Anyone else enjoying (or maybe enjoying isn't the word) a heat wave about now? It is currently 38c (100.4f) with the humid-ex and I feel like I'm dying. We've kept everything closed up tight during the day which has helped a bit. And the a/c is on in the bedroom but it doesn't work for the rest of the house. It does mean I do get a decent sleep (when baby allows) but makes the day a little rough. What do you do to pass time in the heat?

Laundry Mission!

Today I'm on a laundry mission!! Anyone ever have those times where they realized they have fallen WAY behind on laundry? At 4am last night when I couldn't fall back to sleep, I realized this is completely me lol. When BF moved in a couple weeks ago we agreed to wash all cloths he brought over so they were clean and he can decide what he wanted to keep and what we could donate. Well that ment A LOT of laundry landed in my basement. I have slowly been picking away at it, and mixing in what else needed to be done regularly around the house at the same time. And now that the boys are here for the week we have extra laundry needing to be done. Especially since my youngest son likes to change at least his shirt (some times his whole outfit) minimum 3 times a day. So this morning I thought I should take advantage of them being in daycare and get an early start on laundry. Once I got down stairs I realized that there isn't as much left of BF's stuff as I thought. So my goal is to get as much laundry put through today (and yes that includes folding and putting away). I have pushed through two loads so far and am working on folding everything (plus the three loads that needed to be folded that were pushed through this weekend). I'm hoping I can be caught up on bf's laundry by tonight or tomorrow. And then I can catch up on the house hold stuff tomorrow (as we already have a half load of boys cloths ready to go through - which won't take long to go to a full load). Then maybe just maybe I can get all bedding done this week as well and be fully caught up by Friday!! If all this works then the fun stuff starts. I have a lot of cloth diaper stuff that needs to be stripped (second hand) or prepped (new) that I want to get working on this weekend. I have some cloth diaper stuff that is on route that I hope makes it here for the weekend. If not I'm sure I have enough here that I can start with what I have and do the rest when it arrives. 

What's your laundry routine?

Enjoying Summer

Summer has finally showed up here!! We are having more then one day at a time with good temperatures and sunny skies. What are you doing to enjoy your summer? We took the boys to the spray pad yesterday and today I set up the sprinkler in the yard. Both of these worked well for me as they got to run and play in the water to cool off and I got to sit by and watch without too much effort which means relaxing was able to happen.

Baby Gourmet Mail Day!!

Yesterday was a great mail day!! I had gone to the post office expecting a few parcels to start showing up soon. There is still a bit of a delay thanks to the Canada Post situation but they are starting to come in. Next thing I know the post lady is bringing me a very large box. I didn't remember ordering anything of that size but was quiet excited! I brought it home to see that it was the prize we won on the Father's Day giveaway from Definition of a Wife!! I was very surprised to see what all it entailed. There was a picnic basket with 6 packages for each stage (6months, stage 2, stage 3) of their baby food from Baby Gourmet!! I can't wait to be able to try it out. I think I'll be sharing the stage 2 and 3's with a friend just as my little one won't quiet be at that stage for a while to come. But the basket is amazing! Of course I didn't think to take pictures of the lovely packaging before digging right in, but I did manage to snag a few this morning before I put them all away.

What's everyone's Canada Day (or Canada weekend plans)??? We have had a lazy morning as the boys all slept in! They are anxiously waiting for lunch which is cooking. And then as promised we are going outside to play bubbles. They also have the rest of Gnomeo and Juliette to watch so we can do that during quiet time. By then I am beginning to think it will be time for them to clean up and go to their dads as this is the start of his week. 

For us after the boys go we have nothing planned today. I'm really hoping to relax tonight. Tomorrow and Sunday there are things going on with BF's family that we are to go to. Hoping to get my hospital bags packed before hand (as they are an hour away) and then enjoy the weekend. It would be nice at some point to get some extra relaxing in too!!
