A bit of today

"Thomas, I'm proud of you for knowing how to flush the toilet.  If you do it again with me still on it, you are grounded from the bathroom."

Swim diapers are very effective in the pool.  But if you forget your diaper bag/purse when you go to the Y and you don't have an extra normal diaper, swim diapers are NOT a suitable replacement for out of the pool.  Soaking wet everything.  Makes me wonder about the true results in the pool!

Rumor has it that our team secured an amazing donation to our silent auction at the Blarney Blast -- a diamond ring worth $5700 (with appraisal!).  Major kudos to co-captain Danielle!  There are still tickets available -- you should come!  All proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society through our Relay For Life team!

This has been the week of checking stuff off the list.  Made a great deal of meals ahead for the upcoming week and weekend.  Tested out a new whole wheat pizza dough. Washed all the windows I could reach outside.  Made plans to tear out the sticker bushes on the back of the house.  Started cleaning out the bathroom.  Made a double batch of Asian Turkey Meatballs with Lime Sesame Dipping Sauce - half to freeze, half to eat now.  Listed a bunch of clothes on eBay.  Backed up everything on my hard drives. 

Lots to come in the next few days.  For now, soaking in every moment with the Wee Ski.  Cozy right now inside - with the rain pouring down outside and us snuggled together.  Looking forward to LOST and NCIS tonight.  No more reruns!!

Sorry, swim diapers are not for keeping pee out of the pool...only the...floaters. :)

I made that mistake one time with the swim diaper too - Would have thought they were keeping the pee out of the pool. So gross :P

Haha Shelley! Yeah.... swim diapers let the pee through so they don't get bogged down and drown the poor kiddos. They just keep the solids in. ;) Makes you think differently about swim class eh? :) :)

The meatballs+sauce sound great. What do you serve the meatballs with? Pasta...or?

Angelpeach...I usually serve them with brown rice, depends on how many WW points I have left for the day. They're also awesome on their own - just dipped in the lime dipping sauce.

And everyone else...the whole thought of what swim diapers actually do just kind of mortifies me. Or really, the pool itself mortifies me. So I pretend I don't know. :)
