My in-laws came on Saturday. My father in law has been hard at work building a built-in for our entertainment accessories. You know what I mean, the DVR, the blue ray player, the speakers and whatever else goes in there. I'm not going to pretend to know.
We have eaten out every single night except for one. I made a really great dinner. Crockpot french dips, Pioneer Woman's mashed potatoes, green beans and Bakerella's peach dessert. I would link to those but am too lazy. I kind of made up the french dip recipe. 5 lbs of roast, not chuck roast, I can't remember what kind I bought. 2 packages of french dip au juice that makes 2 cups each, one packet of italian dressing, one can of beef broth. Cook on low for 8 - 10 hours.
I am also slightly nervous that I may not be able to turn our new tv on or off. We are going from 2 remotes, one which was for the dvd player only, to 4. Heaven help me.
We have had to leave our house everyday this week from about 8:30 - 5ish. That makes for one very tired mama. And one very tired 15 month old. I put him and Sage in Mothers Day Out yesterday because I was sure he would get a good nap there. It failed. He only slept 15 minutes in the van after I picked him up.
We've been to the zoo. We went to Monkey Joes. We drove to Brenham, TX for a 30 minute tour of the Blue Bell ice-cream factory. Save yourself the trip and buy some ice-cream. It was a long drive. We've been to the park. And the mall. And yesterday, Judy and I shopped at the Galleria, by ourselves. I didn't push a stroller. It was lovely.
Judy spoils us and I may have a new purse and a new skirt to wear over leggings for the spring and summer.
Tonight, we will eat Pizza Hut $10 pizzas and watch Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs on our new tv. The built ins will be built but not painted, but we are all ready for the mess to be cleaned up and to sit in our own house to eat a meal someone else made.
Next time they come, we will not let James do a project, his project will be to enjoy his grandsons. Otherwise, they may never come back!
