Recently though some things have changed, and now my empty summer (with the exception of 3 more weekends away) has gone to jam-packed. A family friend of ours who is pregnant has had to go on bed rest, and has asked if I could nanny their nearly 2 year old son, 4 days a week. Although I'm beyond thrilled to spend tons of time with the adorable little guy, it has made for a more hectic schedule than I originally anticipated.
With the addition of this new gig, as well as the fact that we are out of town for the next 3 weekends in a row, I just wanted to give you all a heads-up that my blogging may be a little sporadic through July. Hopefully not, but it's a strong possibility!
Anyway, here are some random thoughts/questions on this Tuesday morning:
- Friday we are heading to Big Bear for the 4th of July with some of the other young couples at CAhusband's office. They've split everyone's food contribution into meals, and we are in charge of providing breakfast for everyone on Saturday morning. We want to make something fantastic, but are torn on what to make. If anyone has any fantastic breakfast ideas/recipes, feel free to send them my way!
- We finally started watching True Blood Season 2 this weekend! We've finished discs 1 and 2, and will undoubtedly finish the season by next week. Given that season 3 is currently playing on HBO, I'm going to be tempted to subscribe. Does anyone know, can you just cancel HBO at any time, or do you sign like a year contract? We really won't use it enough to justify the cost after True Blood ends, so I'm curious if we could cancel as soon as this season wraps?
I'm so lucky that my parents are available to watch Piper and Reilly while we're out of town this weekend, and again for our trip to La Jolla in 2 weeks; however, we are having a family friend stay with them while we are all going to be away at my SIL's wedding next weekend. I'm curious what you guys think is an accceptable amount of payment for stay with 2 dogs for 4 days? She will sleep over and will pretty much stay here while she's not at work. She will need to walk them once in the morning and once at night, but otherwise, they're actually VERY easy to take care of. Have you ever paid someone to stay with your dogs? How much do you think is acceptable?
Thanks for any input you may possibly have!
Have a great day everyone!
