Five on Friday

1. It's summer guys.  It's summer and it's so hot and I hate it and I'm ready for fall.  I was really hoping having a child would make me more of a summer person but yeah, no.  It's just making me hate it more because all she wants is to be outside and it's just too hot!

2. Haddie's had a rough last couple of days! Last night we were making a card for her friend and she needed some help closing her marker so I snapped it shut, but it caught the skin of her pinkie finger and took out a big chunk.  She cried nonstop for 3 hours which I think is the longest she's ever cried without us being able to console her! It was awful and I felt like the worst mom in the world.  All night long she woke up whimpering and kept her hand in the air. Every time that her bandaid falls off, she cries hysterically. Then, she was playing downstairs and ran full force into our door frame which is reinforced with a steel beam and now she has a lovely raised black bruise running down the middle of her forehead.  Also: I had to let our babysitter go early today because she just was so hysterical. He also let the cat out twice so I had to chase him. Oh and she's getting basically all of the rest of her teeth at once. It's been fun around here!

3.  We've added a couple of new recipes to our regular rotation.  First up is the easiest, tastiest, quickest dinner, "Mom's Ground Turkey and Peppers."  Easy, breezy, filling, delicious and like oddly satisfying.  We have served it over couscous and rice.  I preferred couscous, but Bill preferred rice.  The other is this Dairy Free Chicken Tetrazzini. Chicken tetrazinni is one of my all-time favorite comfort food meals, so I was really happy to find a replacement.

4. I ordered a new Erin Condren planner and I cannot wait for it to arrive. I first used one for the first time last year and I really enjoyed it.  They are expensive AF though so I've been trying a different brand this year and I hate it.  I saw that she released her July 2019-December 2020 ones and decided to just go for it.  I also bought a bunch of stickers and pens from Amazon today. This is going to sound so lame, but I am so looking forward to my old familiar planner! It's going to feel like reuniting with an old friend.  I love the idea of using the same brand of planner every year, like a safe friend to follow me through life.  Now that I sound crazy, moving on...

5.  Who else watches Real Housewives?  I am not caught up on NYC, but I am caught up on BH and I have to say -- I'm a fan of Dorit now and I'm so confused.  Where has this like come from?  Why did I dislike her before?  I'm just so perplexed all around lol.  What are your feelings on her?

  1. Poor Haddie!!! Poor mom!!! You're doing a great job. These things happen. She'll be okay. ;) Hang in there - summer is so tough because of the heat!! There's nothing better than a new planner, tbh! :)
