It’s starting to Fall around here

Hey guys! I haven’t updated in a while. I have been out of town and I also broke my hand. I was going to try to one of those dictate into text apps but that wasn’t going so well. Now Brenda is typing for me because Sarah has “attitude right now, I don’t want to help you”. That’s her own words. I’m not sure what I’ve done now.

Some big, BIG, BIG NEWS to update you all on. Sarah is pregnant. It’s obviously NOT MINE in case any troll tries to lie about that. Her ex-boyfriend David and her had one last goodbye that was eventful enough to get her pregnant. Unplanned. She freaked out initially. I tried to fire her twice so she could either fly home to her parents or fly back to Chicago to be with David. She said no. I didn’t have to wait long that weekend after she found out, both her parents and David showed up. She was on the fence on what to do but after much prayer, she’s keeping the baby and raising it as a co-parent with David. They are not back together (Yet, I have hope for the kid, he’s a nice guy) and I’m supposed to shut up about it Lol Maybe that’s why she’s annoyed with me today?

Brenda are you even typing any of this. You know there’s a spell check as you type, right? Brenda? Don’t type all of that. OMG Brenda stop! Very funny. My nanny has some jokes today.

Yes put a space down from my main paragraph. Don’t type that.

Brenda has settled in well. She’s doing a great job with my kids, especially Sky. Guy,s Sky is getting so big. I missed her the most while I was out of town. I came home thinking she wouldn’t even remember me but she did. I love her so much. I’m very happy she’s with us. The boys are causing all kinds of trouble at home and at school. Their new school seems to be working out fine. I wasn’t sure how the school system in Denver would work out but so far, so good. I really enjoy dropping Peace off for some socialization and fun, and the boys into their classroom. We’ve had a few issues with the 3rd grade teacher but that’s been resolved. I hope. I have no idea why the 3rd grade teacher was causing an issue but she did.

I had Lindsay stay at my house to help with the kids while I was out of town. That was fun for them and a headache for me. While I was away, no I’m not paying you to type this blog for me. I’m going to say thank you and then start thinking on what to type for my next blog. Brenda, you better not be typing all of that again. Don’t type when I tell you things, only type to dictate my blog. It’s not funny. No it’s not. This is my blog. Not Brenda’s HAHA time. Fine, we will go get a Starbucks. No. Because I said no. Fine, 1 muffin. That’s it though!!!!!!!!!!

I broke my left hand. Showering was a trick at first so I switched to baths. I don’t fit into any bath tub in North America so that was short lived. Short lived doesn’t have to have a hyphen but you can. Brenda, can we just finish this please!!!! I was already ambidextrous so it wasn’t hard to do things right handed. It’s challenging. What? There’s no I in the ending. It’s just the extrous. I’m getting a little big frustrated with you typing this out. Let’s just wrap it up, go get your Starbucks, and get back home. Okay? Can we just finish this blog please?

Fall weather in Denver has been up and down. Nice sunny days followed by snow (Yes it snowed already once) and then more nice days. The wind is completely different here. I’m still getting used to sitting outside. The kids love Denver I think. They have adjusted well and this is the month when I’m going to start doing playdates for them. I think meeting their little friends and their parents will be interesting.

Giant sigh, Brenda I don’t know who Timmy is yet. Who is he? The one with glasses? Oh he’s a total, wait don’t put that in there.

Let me read this blog please. Thank you Brenda.

I did not want you to put that in there. Edit it all out please. Brenda. Don’t hit publish! Wait, no

First day of Fall

Welcome to the end of my summer and the beginning of my fall 2016. So summer was a huge amount of fun this year. I had my boys, I had the Olympics. I had all kinds of baby stuff going on. I honestly don’t deserve all the good I have in my life. The best things are yet to come though. Fall is here! Pumpkin spice everything, candles that make my house smell great. Football! And Cubs post-season play. It’s going to be a great fall season for my little family. The boys have completed swim lessons. I got their certificates tonight. Our last swim lesson and I’m happy. I think they enjoyed it a lot. I found out the next cycle for baby fun is usually baby yoga. Which I find ridiculous and I said no to. I told the moms in the class my boys will be signed up for another activity at night but we haven’t found one yet. I want to get them into something before it snows. Because I’m already paranoid about taking them out into cold weather. I don’t want to deal with it again. It was hard enough at the beginning of this year. I didn’t know what to dress them in. I was confused so I kept them inside for 6 weeks.

We are going up to the lakehouse tomorrow. I’m getting off work at noon so we can enjoy a long weekend. I’m dropping everyone off then making a quick trip to Sam’s club to get a bunch of stuff for this weekend. The girls want me to make a few things. Cookies was high on the list. But of course not vegan cookies because no one put me and the boys like those. I think they are really tasty. But I’m used to it. Oh well. I’m also supposed to make chili. Yuck. They want 2 kinds of meat to go in it. I could just about hurl thinking about it already. Sitting there stirring that pot all morning. Is there any good slow cooker chili recipes that I don’t have to mess with much? Anyone know of one?

I’m really getting into these cooking ideas. I’ve been trying a lot of different things the girls find for me. They wanted a cheese fest night. So I got all kinds of things and made 4 different dishes. That was a big success. You know what didn’t go over well? Seafood night. Yuck. I told them I really don’t know how to cook seafood but they didn’t listen. It was a disaster Lol Really bad and the smell for days. Even worse. Never leave cut up fish in your garbage can for 2 days, people. It was really bad.

The Cubs won last night! Great game that started off with 2 runs. And then it died down for a little while. Then more and more. Great game. Cam and I sat on our European pillow seats he bought. It was hilarious. But everyone in our row asked to try it out and we all agreed very comfortable. Not very practical to carry around but no one thought we were smuggling in anything bad. Just 2 dudes, with seat pillows Lol You know, typical Chicago Cubs fans! Geez, Cam.

Work was good. Got a lot done. Lindsay is starting a campaign to get me to move to Las Vegas with the boys. She said if she starts now I may change my mind and stay in America. I doubt it. I have bigger dreams than raising my kids here. I want to go explore and travel with them.

She has been traveling more than I have. We haven’t been talking much. Just business. Anytime I ask her what she’s up to she does the whole Huh thing, goes completely silent then says gotta run and hangs up. She’s squirrely.

So what is everyone doing this weekend? Anything fun?

Have a great rest of the week. I’m sure I will have time to update more this weekend.
