My son and I had a great day on Thursday. We had a nap together in the morning, and another one in the afternoon. It was raining, so for the rest of the day we drank a lot of milk and stared out the window.
Then, when my girlfriend got home early from work, we went to the next town over so they could go shopping for shoes, while I took photos at the nearby gardening centre.
We also bought him some little dinosaurs for his bath time.
My son had his first slice of baloney, then his second and third. And he had a mash up of ground beef, corn and potatoes for dinner, while we had hotdogs and chips in front of the TV.
My mother is taking my son for a few hours tomorrow (Friday) while I’m in my psychiatrists office for our appointment. She’s being good about not taking him to her mother’s place. The last two weeks have been very peaceful between my mother and myself.
The reason why is one of those posts I haven’t had time to write. Hopefully this weekend.
Speaking of which… I’m going to be living on no money (re: Mr. Noodles) until next Wednesday. But this was kind of planned, because as of next Wednesday I will have paid off all of my bills — hydro, gas, rent, phone, cable, Internet, something else I can’t remember.
Everything will be at zero, and I can start with my new budget, which I’m hoping will mean everything stays at zero for a while.
I was about two inches away from that bug when I took the photo. I take a lot of floral-based photography, and this is the first year I’ve seen those bugs. They’re a cross between a smushed honey bee and a deer fly, but with really long and creepy legs.
I’m no entomologist, but if anyone has bug knowledge I’d appreciate learning something about these critters. Like, how close will they let me get before they shoot acid into my eyes?
