We kind of got our internet back. We did get the modem late Friday. Ryan installed it after a very long time on 'hold' with the stupid phone company. But while he was doing that, he realized that via the modem, the desktop computer was zapped too. Just part of it. It is something that is fixable. He got a hold of Dell and luckily we still have a warranty on the hardware! WooHoo! So they are sending someone to fix it. For free. But the laptop is usable. So we do have Internet again. Ya know, we have lived here for 6 years now. I think. And we have had this type of zap twice now. Comes through the phone line, gets the modem, and then something inside the computer. Both times (although 2 different computers) we have been under warranty, so I am glad we haven't had to pay for it, but still. I don't know, to me that seems a bit ridiculous. 2 times in 6 years. I don't understand why it keeps happening out here. Is the equipment the phone company has out here that old and outdated? Or is there some other reason? And of course we seem to lose electricity a lot as well. I just don't get it.
So we haven't been up to a lot. It is so stinking hot. But it seems most of the country is, so we aren't alone. We don't have any plans this weekend. I ran up to the Outlet Mall this morning to get Ryan shorts and swimming trunks for August. He needed another pair of shorts and trunks, and I needed to get out for a bit. We weren't gone long. It got busy fast up there and like I said, its hot. Ryan has to work tomorrow. Yesterday was long. Ethan decided not to nap, instead to spend that time crying. Yeah. Fun. He barely ate dinner. He ate coleslaw. Thats it. Then, he didn't go to bed until after 9! I tried putting him to bed at 8. He whined, threw his stuff out of his crib and whined, and then cried. I went in, Ryan went in. Ethan came out. He was wired. Hyper. So whatever, we let him play. I tried again at 9. He whined a short bit, but was out of it. No sleep until 9 pm that day. Wow. No peace and quiet for me that day until 9pm. Geez. I don't know if he wasn't feeling good from his shot at the doctor on Wednesday or what. I know it can take time for the kids to feel a reaction to those shots. Who knows really. All I know was that I was a worn out (physically and mentally) mommy. Today he went for his nap just fine. Relief.
I don't remember if I mentioned it on here or not. If I did, sorry. Dylan got his paperwork for preschool. It starts August 29th! We have an orientation the week before. Its kind of a meet and greet for the kids and parents. I haven't figured out what we are doing with Ethan. I really don't want to take him in there. We will be there for over and hour, and we need to be focused on Dylan. If I have questions, I don't want to forget, because I have to chase Ethan around. And I seriously doubt that other parents will bring their non-preschool kids. I just don't want to bring Ethan. I want to focus on Dylan. I don't know. We will figure something out. So while we were in at the doctors office, I had them fill out the paperwork for Dylan that the school needed. Just a physical form. I got most of the paperwork filled out. I am ready to send him. He has his last Monday where he is now, in a couple of days. So after Monday, he is done until the end of August.
Also, as of now, Dylan has plans Labor Day weekend. Do you know what Labor Day weekend is for us personally? The 4th of September will be our 7th Anniversary! Ryan and I will have been married for 7 years! So while Dylan is at my Grandparents', hopefully Ryan and I can get away for a whole day together to do something. But I'd be fine with just dinner. We haven't really talked about it much, but I imagine we will do something. I hope we can pawn Ethan off on someone then also. I kind of sound like an awful person...I have mentioned leaving Ethan twice in this one post....Bad mommy. Now wait, to be fair, I am with them every.single.day.24 hours a day. So there.
