I've got the theme song for Littlest Hobo stuck in my head and I have no idea why!
Tonight we watched the first part of a 2 part miniseries called Guns. It explores rising gun violence in Canada. I found it really gritty and almost hard to watch at times, but we will definitely be tuning in for the 2nd part tomorrow night.
I like watching Canadian shows for a change. Though I did mention to James that I reeeally want to start watching some happier-content shows. I feel like everything we watch is so negative. For example, we just finished watching Dexter Season 3 recently. An amazing show and I can’t wait to see the 4th season start up, but the point is that I also need some uplifting shows in my life! I guess there’s always Treehouse – when I watch shows with Andrew there’s always a positive message!
We didn’t end up doing a whole lot today. I really felt fall starting to creep into my bones today. Not because I felt cold at all but it’s just this feeling. Most likely a result of the greyness outside – the clouds, the bouts of rain. Sigh. I am already starting to miss summer, and regret that my flip flops are going to have to be retired soon till next spring.
We did go do a grocery shop, and got ingredients for eggplant parmesan, which James made for us and it turned out DELICIOUS. Mmmm! The best part is that we have leftovers. I also made a pot of chilli so we’ve got frozen meals prepared for days when I don’t have time or energy to cook, and leftovers for the next day or two in the fridge. Yay!
Andrew enjoyed himself a little eggplant parmesan – how cute is that?! He actually ate it and seemed to like it. He’s been doing a bit better food-wise the past few days. Today he had cereal biscuits with water (so, basically mush) with yogurt, some cheese, later some yogurt on its own, cottage cheese, and the eggplant parmesan. I think he had a few Cheerios as well. I can’t remember if there was anything else. Yesterday he had an assortment of veggies and fruit, cereal, yogurt and even veggie sausage and hash browns! So he’s getting some variety, although he really needs to eat a bit more of things. I think he slept through the night last night because I filled his belly with his cereal mixed with a baby vanilla custard. I think he needs something more than just breast milk at night to get him satisfied for a longer period. Unfortunately tonight he fell asleep before I could get him anything like that – so if/when he wakes up tonight again, he’s being fed baby food before getting nursies! Hopefully this plan will work and he’ll start sleeping better through the night.
I had a half hour nap today but I was pretty tired all day long – yes, Andrew slept through last night – but he was up before 6:30 this morning. Tomorrow I’m hoping James will take him early and I can sleep longer. I hate feeling such a lack of get-up-and-go. There’s so much I want to do but all I can do is think about it till I get the energy to get at it!
