j went climbing the weekend after memorial day, leaving me with lots of z duty, and by last weekend i was dying, so grandma & grandpa watched z while j & i escaped to the coast for 2 nights. we went to lincoln city, and stayed in the pacific winds condos. it's most likely our only trip for the whole summer. :(
the weather was perfect, and it was very relaxing. we watched a lot of cable tv, including two world cup games.
here's a bit of the ocean at sunset, right outside our condo.
is that venus in the sky? that was j's guess.
grammy was in town for m's graduation from ohsu, so she came along with abuelo & abuela to watch z while i ran off to a dentist's appointment. i didn't get to see the graduation, but did get to see grammy for awhile. and i didn't have any cavities! yay me.
congrats, dr. jeffers!
on memorial day, we were having all j's soccer friends over for a bbq, involving LOTS of little kids, so we wanted to have the deck safe for everyone. we had someone fix the main supports awhile back, but filling in the gaps was relatively easy, so j did it himself. memorial day weekend, i got z duty, and j did the repairs (i did help with some of the drilling...). one of the decks still needs to be finished, but the other two are completely safe. the bbq was fun, but it was a bit of a madhouse. we had people over for dinner the night before, so i was exhausted after the weekend!
thought i'd take z's second time out of the morning to blog. this time he was picking up cat food & moving it, and got mad when i told him to stop. i picked him up to wash his hands, and he tried to bite me. the first time out was because he was angry i wouldn't give him any more cherries. this is the first time i've bought them this season. perhaps i shouldn't have bothered. he also turned on the dishwasher, on freshly done & dried dishes, so i had to dry them all by hand before putting them away. ugh. and those had to be dried, so i could wash the dishes in the sink, so i could wash off the chicken i was about ready to put in the oven so the dishes wouldn't get chicken juice all over them. i managed to get two kitchen counters cleaned off, but he hates it when i try to get stuff done. we went to the grocery store this morning, which also counts somewhat as time not spent on him. he gets frustrated when he doesn't get attention. time out is up...
