Weekend Update

While we had no solid plans for the weekend, it was a fairly eventful one!

On Friday we had two separate visits by some of our friends. Two of them stopped by for a quick hello while they were on their way to Calgary for the weekend, and one of them stopped by in the afternoon for a few hours. I always love surprise visits from friends, so that really made my day!

Friday morning I also re-wrote my insurance exam since I missed the passing grade last time by 6-friggin’-percent. I felt WAY better leaving the exam this time than I did last time; I don’t know if it was because my mind was more clear, or if the lady who supervised my exam was just nicer than the last, but I have a pretty good feeling about it this time.

On Friday evening Isla had a sleepover at my mom’s and Kyle and I went and watched The Expendables 3 at the theatre with some friends. The movie was horrible but we laughed the entire time because it was just that bad. When the movie got out we went out for a late dinner and caught up on life. In all, we had a super great evening despite how bad the movie was!

Saturday, however, wasn’t so great. Isla, with her sneaky ninja-like skills, somehow managed to waltz into the bathroom and grabbed the just-cooling-down-but-still-very-hot flat iron. She ended up burning three of her fingers on her right hand pretty good, so Kyle and I made a trip to the emergency room just in case. She cried the entire time, the poor girl, but we were in and out of the hospital in about 30 minutes. (A record, by the way. Usually ER trips take 2 hours or more, but I suppose when it’s a crying-in-pain 2-year old, things are kicked into high-gear.) It didn’t help that she had been up since 5:30 that morning, either. But as soon as we got home and settled down on the couch for some cartoons and much needed cuddles, she was sound asleep. (I’m sure the Advil and Tylenol the nurses gave her for the pain helped too.) And as soon as she woke up from her nap? You’d never even think she was hurt, other than the cute little “mitten” on her hand. Kyle bought her a GIANT cake pop from the bakery and she was as happy as can be.

August 23

Sunday was pretty lazy overall. I grocery shopped in the morning (how exciting), and went and played slo-pitch in the afternoon. We won our first game and lost our second, but they were good games overall! I got hit in the wrist with a line-drive I attempted to catch, so that feels pretty awesome today and I’m sure it’s going to leave a nice bruise.

Oh yeah! And I was also nominated for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! I was happy to dump a bucket of freezing cold water on my head in support of ALS. I know a few people who have had family members and close friends battle the disease, so it was an honour to raise awareness. Here’s my video:

That’s pretty much our weekend! Today I have to take Isla to see the doctor to have her dressing changed, then I think it’s going to be a trip to the store to buy dog food and maybe see if the Halloween costumes are out yet. I can’t believe that this coming weekend is Labour Day weekend already! It’s going to be hard saying goodbye to summer because this one has been SO great!

How was your weekend? What was the last movie you watched in theatre?

  1. Aww! Poor Isla! Ninja baby! I’m glad she’s feeling better. I’m sure the chocolate helped. It’s the best medicine, sometimes! :)

    My weekend was good. I had book club on Friday night (which included a fun ghost tour!), my brother came over on Saturday and I got my fill of one-on-one time with him, and then Sunday I got in some good workouts + cleaning + meal prepping. Very good weekend on my end! :)

    Oh, gosh, the last movie I saw in theaters… I think it was Tammy! It was an alright movie… not sure it was worth the movie price – ha!


  2. Poor Isla! The ER here has been really quick every time we’ve taken Topher. (Yes, he’s been multiple times!) Last time the triage nurse told me they make kids a higher priority and try to keep in mind bedtimes, nap times, etc. So that’s nice :) I think the last movie we watched in theatre was the first Hunger Games movie, but we left partway through! We just wait until movies are on Shaw on Demand and watch them at home when the kids are in bed. We’re cheap :)
