Weekend Report

This weekend had it ups and downs. For some reason E wasn’t sleeping well and had an uncharacteristically high number of meltdowns. I think it his seasonal allergies might be bothering him a lot right now or maybe he’s fighting off a bug. I guess he could be acting out just because he’s two and a half but for the sake of my sanity I prefer to believe that it’s something that can be overcome with Zyrtec or a couple days of rest rather than waiting months for him to grow out of it.

We did make it to the art sale and I bought this piece by my friend Linnie. This photo doesn’t really do it justice–it’s huge (3 ft. by 3 ft.) and the colors and texture in it are fantastic.

I bought it as sort of an investment–not as in I hope Linnie becomes crazy famous and I can sell it for $$$ later (although, now that I think of it that’s not a bad idea, Linnie!) but more of an investment for a future house. Our current place doesn’t have a good place to hang it but I think it will look great over a sofa or console table. But I really liked it and the price was right so it came home with us.

After the art sale we realized that we were just a few blocks away from what is probably the best Mexican restaurant in the state and so we stopped by for a delicious lunch. And then we went home and did chores until it was time to meet some friends for dinner.

Sunday was a little rougher. E (understandably) has a hard time sitting still at church and I’m developing fears that he’s becoming “the problem kid” in nursery. He just likes to run around a lot. Every week he comes home with a blank coloring page with his name written on it because he doesn’t sit still to color. Yesterday N picked him up from nursery so I didn’t hear about it first hand but I guess E took a header off a chair–oops.

After a busy weekend I’m really looking forward keeping it low-key today. A mountain of laundry has never seemed so relaxing!

  1. Love your painting! You could maybe make room for it at your house… but you'd have to take a few things down, I guess. I can't wait to see it in person.

    Also, I seriously doubt E is the problem child in nursery. Problem child = hitting child and that isn't E.

    Mmmmmm…Red Iguana….

  2. That is a beautiful painting. I like your philosophy on purchasing art and treating it like an investment.

    Allergies suck! I'm starting to suspect asthma now…are you guys at that point yet? Good luck with the sleep! 🙁
