2019 chapter 3

Girls took a nap this afternoon. It was a rare quiet time where I suddenly realizes that it was actually quiet and I went in to find that they had fallen asleep on their own (usually when they need a nap I have to lie down with them). That being said, as I sit down this evening to write this, I fully expect to be interrupted.

Another sleeping Blake. She fell asleep in the car and slept like this for a good hour. When she woke up I realized she had a fever. Makes sense. She's had an interesting year of getting little bugs and is the only one to get them - I'm not complaining about my whole house not getting sick, but feel bad for this kiddo. All she wants to do is cuddle me, which is adorable and extremely time consuming. Even now that she's better she's still a little off and very needy - following me around crying for me to cuddle her as I make dinner, go to the bathroom, clean, laundry...everything. 

Hung a mirror in my room basically for this exact reason: 

I'm always finding good Jac pics on my phone, and the mirror one she managed to make my wallpaper. 

Jacqueline's been having a few nightmares this week. They're so pathetic and adorable. I feel so bad. One night she woke up crying for Daddy and so concerned about his chapstick. She kept calling out, "Daddy chapstick!! Daddy chapstick!!!" I got up with her and calmed her down, but she couldn't get back to sleep until Daddy came in and she knew he (and his chapstick) were okay. 

Every year Bryan's high school does an alumni basketball game. It was last Saturday and we all went to watch. He was in the first graduating class and we realized that he and his friends were the old farts - but I did get to overhear someone talk about how "Bryan's a beast!" He still plays really well and the other farts couldn't keep up. And for some reason the girls decided covering their noses for the pictures was really funny. 

Wade discovered the disposable dish cupboard. I no longer have any disposable dishes. The straws were extremely exciting and have been used as currency. I went to pick up a couch I found for free and Wade handed me a bunch of these to pay for it, I told him that it would cover it. Haha. The downside of straws is that when they fall, it's a lot to pick up. The upside is that the vacuum easily picks them up. 

Kids built a house: 

I found a game of Hungry Hungry Hippos and a toy microwave at the thrift store. They seem unrelated, but they are both really loved by everyone, and turns out you really need to microwave the hippo food before you feed them. It's been really fun. 

Blake's been a baby. As previously stated. She's decided that getting into the car and crying about not wanting to do her buckle is really fun for me while I stand in the cold. She can do. Just won't. Which leaves us regularly sitting in the car while we wait. Wade has taken to helping her and it warms my heart. 

Today Blake came running in crying to me that she found a bug!!! Then she handed it to me. She does this a lot - acts totally freaked out, and yet she picks it up and brings it to me. She knows how to play the part and get a rise! Oh, and it was a spider that was still alive and my mind started racing on if it could be poisonous and even though it's not, what if the next time she picks up a spider it is poisonous?!?! 

While the girls napped today Wade made a soup out of scraps from me making dinner and an empty ketchup bottle. He played her for 2 hours. 2 HOURS!!! 

And Wade built a table. Man, he's been busy building this week.

I went to the doctor about my back/leg this week. Only took my 5 months. They told me exactly what I already knew: bulging disk. This is how I stretch, with all the helpers:
