Look, Gran!

DSC_0049“My flowers are blooming!  I’ve got to show Gran.”

DSC_0047I think it is safe to say that Ruby didn’t get her “green thumb” from me!  (Note the overgrown beds behind Ruby.)  Gran got Ruby these flowers for her birthday, and they planted them down in Albany.  Ruby has been watering them every day, and she is so excited to see the blooms.  I know Gran will be proud of her.  

And though I don’t garden so well, I can clean.  Here is my refrigerator:

DSC_0052And for the record, it is time to go to the grocery store.  I put it off as long as I possibly can.  Wouldn’t you if you had to go with three kids?!?  But it was a great time to clean out the refrigerator because there was hardly anything in there!  

Yesterday, Ruby was riding her bike and said, “Look, NO HANDS!”  Then, two seconds later she said to herself, “I think using your hands is best if you are riding a bike.”  Good thinking, Ruby!  Safety first.

DSC_0012We were at the new house making sure the grass was getting enough water.  The grass changed it a lot!

Night #2 of the Virus

Molly was sick Saturday night.  Ruby was sick last night.  Let’s just hope Mack doesn’t get it.  The virus is not bad at all.  Minimal throw-up, low-grade fever, little to no appetite, and it is all over in less than 24 hours.  BUT the climax of it all goes down between 2:00 am and 5:30 am.  Fun times at the Dorminy house!

So now I am about to do Jillian’s 30-Day Shred and hope I don’t hurt myself.
