This was a pretty tame week in the Painless household. Claire's camp finished up, with an adorable end-of-session show by her class.
Ben's been pretty adorable, for almost-two. I still can't believe my smushy little baby is a toddler. Still can't wrap my brain fully around the boy he has started to become.
This weekend was nice. Dave's been getting home from work earlier - so we had a nice Friday dinner, got the kids to bed.
Saturday, you might have heard, we were expecting a hurricane. Irene.
We were also invited to an engagement party - for one of my oldest friends, and her fiance. We went out to the party in the rain. Had a great time (although Ben didn't want to eat ANYTHING but cupcakes and pretzels) and came home as the heavy rains started to fall. The roads were empty and we got everyone settled in. We watched a bad movie and went to bed ourselves.
This morning, it was still blowing and rainy, so we've been stuck inside. Ben and I both have the dregs of a summer cold, making us both crabby. Dave stayed up too late last night, then got up with the kids this morning.
So, here we are - the menfolk and sleeping, the ladies are relaxing in the living room.
