July and Day 22

Well, we made it to July. And oh man I am having the hardest time getting my kids to bed. The sun doesn't go down until so late here. I know it's summer but we need sleep. Today we trekked up to Coos Bay to do some shopping to stock the pantry. I realized that I haven't crossed the bridge to leave Bandon in almost three weeks. It's nice to stay here on our little pretend island sometimes. Soon enough we'll be heading back up to Seattle so I'm cherishing all this time out of the car.

Jeff comes home tomorrow night and I can always sense I need to get to the end of my shift with the kids- soccer balls flying through my living room and fighting and "you bit me!" and "no I didn't!" and "then why were your teeth on my arm?" - I made everybody sit together and watch a movie. I put on Nacho Libre and have no idea why they thought it was so funny but glad they did. Then they all bonded over Siri and asking her dumb questions. And finally, they went to bed. (day twenty-two)

and it's only a Tuesday

Knitted gifts & a ring sling

I finished all my knitting! And just in time- my life-long friend had her baby at home last night. It was magical. How I wish I could be giving these gifts to her in person.

Today was better! It was good. It actually felt like a day off, and it's only a Tuesday. (day twenty-one)

getting better now

After the sunset Monday night.

To say I'm a bit irritable would be an understatement. Yesterday was a good lazy day, though. I made pancakes and it was nice. Just when I've wanted to go down to the beach for sunset the past few days, the big mist rolls in.

Today I slept in and tackled some projects that need finishing. Ivy was sad that the boys wanted alone time and she had no one to hang out with so we decided to watch a movie together and then it ended up that everyone was on my bed watching The Land Before Time while I tried to concentrate on my knitting. I've just felt off the rest of the day and nothing gets my kids working together faster than when I start losing it a bit. Then I lost my finishing needle somewhere in my lap or chair and it's just completely disappeared so I went for a drive and thankfully found some needles that will do at the grocery store. I also got to see a pretty beautiful sky.

Everyone's going to bed earlier tonight in hopes we all are in better moods tomorrow. (days nineteen and twenty)
