We had pizza tonight. It was okay but not awesome. Partially because only three of us ate it and mostly because none of us ate together. Big brother has a fever and went to bed with no dinner, little brother's temperature is rising but he was still hungry (of course), my pizza got cold while I looked after the eldest one and DaddyB got home at seven and is eating his now. So I'm posting photos of a much nicer pizza event from a couple of weeks ago. When it was still summer! I had written about it but not published it yet.
Generally I'm feeling worn out and like I'm running on empty. It's been a big week. I started back working at TV3 (part time during school hours yippee) and the kids got sick almost immediately. How do other working parents manage sick kids without any extended family to help out? Do you work? What do you do? It's all new to me having been at home with them pretty much full time for the past six years.
This weekend we were supposed to be heading north for a weekend by the beach, hanging out with NanaD and Poppa. The fevers and the weather bomb have ruined that for us. Waaaaaaaaa. We had a cabin booked and paid for and everything. Although I'm wondering if a quiet weekend at home might actually be just what the doctor ordered.
Here's the original pizza party post:
#2 is showed off his work of art.
We accidentally bought the wrong type of cheezly. The cheddar type doesn't melt beautifully like the mozzarella style. It still tasted good but I was a bit sad to miss out on the stretchy meltiness.
Finally you get to see our beautiful back yard door table in it's full glory. I feel like I love it a little more each day that we use it. Not really looking forward to the end of summer, although we will get more use out of the outdoor fairy lights when it gets a bit darker earlier. Also loving that pizza can be awesome even if you're dairy free.
I might be taking a wee blog break after all of the recent business, a few other things needing my time at the moment. No doubt I'll be back before you even miss me.
