After she woke up we headed over to tumble and tea, so I could eat lunch since I had been fasting for the blood test, but they were closed, they normally close at 3:30, but recently sent out an email that they were extending their winter hours to 7:00, when I got home I realized the new hours were not going to start until November. So we hung out at the house and played for an hour, until it was time to leave for the movie. It is baby brigade night, and we went to see Appaloosa.
Holly fell asleep on the way home, but then woke up around 9:45, so Joel got to feed and change her and play with her for a few minutes before she fell back asleep.
Monday was another super busy day, in the morning I tried twice to feed holly Carrots, which she is supposed to like, on the second try I added in a spoon of oatmeal to thicken it a bit, but she is getting really good at keeping her mouth shut and not getting any bites, and now she is using her tongue to push the food out. In the afternoon we went to pick up some craigslist items, I got a cool 11x17 white board with calendar squares on it, it will come in handy for doing monthly calendars on shopping, feeding Mack, and other stuff like that. Then we went to pick up an exersaucer, it was only 25$ and it was the ultra evenflo, so it had like 8 toys on top, it is very cool and I know Holly will love it.
Then I decided to head out to Costco, I decided to join and get a membership so that I could try and save some money by buying in bulk, specifically a friend told me that formula was cheaper and in a larger container, so I was excited by that. They also have discount gas. Costco parking is always a zoo, so I was waiting for a spot for like 10 minutes, since they don’t bag your stuff it takes a while to unload into the car, and it was an older couple, so I am waiting and then realize there is a car in the other lane waiting for the same spot, I try to get his attention, and begin to park, the guy nearly hit me rushing into the spot and taking it, then the guys yells out of the car.
Inside Costco I got my membership, and they let me put Holly in the photo, so it was quite cute. Then I went shopping, and it was a bit overwhelming, Joel didn’t want me to get too many perishable bulk items, so they wouldn’t go bad, and I was still going to the regular store, but I somehow ended up spending over 200$ I did get a lot of stuff and I was able to get all of it into the cupboards so that was good. I was able to get a bunch of staple items, like pasta and formula, and I did end up getting some frozen chicken, it was so much cheaper I couldn’t pass it up.
Next we stopped at the bank and deposited my last work check, I had been holding onto it since the 10th and this was my first chance, and then we went to Luckys and did the rest of the grocery shopping. It was nice to have the fridge full again, we had pretty much emptied it before going out of town and hadn’t had much time to fill it since we got back, then I went and picked up one more craigslist item, a kids guitar. It was only 8 dollars, Holly is way too little for it, Joel doesn’t think she will be able to use it until she is like 4, but still it was so cheap and I know I want one, and couldn’t help myself. I am going to stay off craigslist for a while; there is so much good stuff on there.
Sunday was a very laid back day. I don’t think we left the house. Joel was working on a script for a contest, and we basically just hung out and played all day. He made a pot roast, and he basically just told me how wonderful his weekend was. I don’t think we really did anything special, but just spent the day together.
