We had a busy weekend with mel and I hitting the Pima County Fair to see Full Sail
play. They are a band with folks I work with and it was a lot of fun. We had a nice lunch, tooled around the sheep exhibits and then hit up the exhibit halls. Mel got me my bday present of a pretty emerald necklace/earring set. We got to picking up Benton right on time and then had a quiet evening at home. Saturday we got up and headed to Barmaids with lferion
. We had a fun day. Mel watched the boy while I fought in the rapier and then the hardsuit tourneys. I didn't come in last in the rapier and I guess I came in second in the hardsuit. Kane was an awesome bodyguard during the tourney and since it was really an multicombat situation that was helpful while I killed people he watched our back and we did well.
We were tanked by the time we got done with barmaids. I had dumb fighter brain and so when we got about 20mins outside of home I called in dinner to our local chinese place and we picked it up before going home. Benton went straight to bed without dinner he was so tuckered out. We all felt that way and after food and a summer shandy a piece it was nice to relax.
Sunday morning we got up and mel put on his biking gear and I put on my running gear and we met at Joes. I ran the 1.6 miles to joes (long way around from our house) with Benton in the stroller and made really good time. ickaimp
met us for breakfast and we had a good time. Got home, changed clothes and then went out to the zoo. We took Benton's wagon out with us and had a good time. The peacocks were in great abundance and we had a really nice time. Benton went down for a nap (eventually) and I headed to Costco and then home. I was tired. I'd done a lot of physical stuff in two days and not a lot of sleep, I was weary but I did good and went to the gym on monday too.
Tuesday mel left for New Jersey for business. I was up with him a little after 5am. We had an okay night on Tuesday. I got more work done on the court book and then Wednesday the weird started. I had replaced the batteries in my alarm clock and I set it wrong. I got up later than I wanted since its just me at home and I have lots to do in the AM to get me and Benton ready. Got in to get Benton and he had wet the bed. Everything was soaked....he had gotten out of his diaper a bit and it caused the leak. Boys will play with themselves when ever they want...sighs. Got things torn apart and got him dried off and dressed. It was a battle to get him in clothes because he did not want to be up. Got him to daycare and had a rough day at work. I was soo tired. But I hit the gym and did 3 full circuits of the quick workout room and I increased the weights a notch on each time through. I was soaked and tired and ready to be heading home. I went to pick up Benton and he had had a day. He bit someone on the playground, was a brat and then decided during afternoon snack to dump all of his milk on his clothes. We got home okay and then when unloading the truck Benton decided to grab the tailpipe. Sighs. This led to about an hour of screaming and crying and obstinate behavior while I treated the burns and got dinner on the table and got him to finally eat it. He was finally in bed about 730-745pm but he was out. I dinked around before sitting back down to work on the court book for an hour and then I did the trash/cat box work and went to bed. At 1230-1am I woke up to Benton crying. We got up and got icewater, a new icepack for his hand and another dose of Advil. He was out pretty quickly after that and I went back to bed too.
Today was okay. He didn't want to eat breakfast right away but was happy to see the garbage truck etc. Normal Thursday routine without his dad though. Dropped off at daycare and they will be keeping his hand looked at and we should be okay. Everyone hopes he has a better day today.
I've got so much to do before we leave before dawn on Saturday that I'm thinking of skipping Dojo night. I need to get the key to someone to lock up. But we shall see....
