Nay: Not only was I stuck in the middle seat for both of my flights, but on flight #1, I sat next to a Stage 5 talker (you know â€“ the kind that ignores subtle and not-so-subtle hints that you want to be left alone), and on flight #2, I was stuck next to a serious snorer. And I was sans-coffee. So. That was fun.
Yay: I am home! For 22 awesome hours, but still. HOME.
Nay: I was so excited to see Henry â€“ I picked him up from the clinic â€“ but he kind of gave me the cold shoulder. It hurt my feelings so much that I cried. I wanted him to be all, â€œMomma! Momma!â€ and he was more like, â€œHey, there are car keys in your hand â€“ saaaaaweet.â€ I texted a bunch of momma friends and DadHTP and everyone assured me itâ€™s normal butâ€¦ it still sucked.
Yay: However, once we got home and were in a quieter environment, Henry gave me the Xâ€™s and Oâ€™s that I was searching for. We played, played, played all afternoon. It was lovely. I missed him a lot.
Nay: I tried to make homemade stuffed grape leaves this afternoon. I LOVE stuffed grape leaves. One of my favorite foods. Iâ€™ve had a jar of grape leaves in the pantry for a few months, and after browsing recipes online, decided to try my hand at rolling the tasty little treats.
They werenâ€™t very goodâ€¦ They opened up a bit (too much space in the pan?) and were tough. I think grape leaves are one of those foods that just taste better when someone else prepares it.
Any ideas for what to do with all the leftovers? Should I try again or make something else? Is there anything else you can create with grape leaves?!
Yay: While unpacking the diaper bag, I discovered that Maggie is a size 6 Months in baby clothes. I thought Maggie and Henry looked like they were finally exactly the same size! Now I know for sure that they are. As a result, Maggie has a new vest. Lookinâ€™ fly, girlfriend!
Nay: Trying to walk two unruly dogs + navigate the streets with a jogging stroller = Disaster.
I was so exhausted by the time I got home from our two-block stroll that I blew off my run. Seriously â€“ that was enough action for one day.
Yay: Since Iâ€™m heading out tomorrow, I simply dumped all the contents of my suitcase into the wash and repacked it when it was dry. Easy peasy.
What was your yay or nay for the day?
