We were having a wonderfully relaxing weekend until my oldest got hurt. He was swimming with some friends and one of his buddies accidentally jumped on him in the water pushing Landon into the side of the pool. His head knocked into the side of the pool giving him a pretty good gash. I honestly don't know what it looks like because I almost passed out. I am SO grateful to have our very own athletic trainer in house who sees injuries like this..and WAY worse...on the daily. Mr. Spouse took care of everything and made the decision to forego stitches/staples. He cleaned and bandaged it all up and Landon is on the mend. Praise Jesus!
He said he was going to tell everyone at school that he has a head injury. Made me laugh out loud.
We spent the rest of the weekend laying low and headed to my parents house on Sunday for our weekly family Sunday Funday. I adore my family to pieces.
I dropped off the boys with a quickness this morning so I could head to the grocery store and grab a few cartons of this frozen gold. I haven't eaten ice cream since Blue Bell stopped producing back in the spring. I mean everything else just pales in comparison. I know my Texas friends can attest to that sentiment, right?! I consider myself lucky because I grabbed these two before they sold out! Woo hoo!!!
Now that we're gearing up for another week ahead and I'm back into my routine, I decided to keep myself on track with meal planning. It's the easiest, most effective way for me to stay on track when buying groceries. There's just something about the summer that doesn't lend itself to staying organized in the kitchen. Lots of fast meals, hot dogs, and take out :) Needless to say, Mr. Spouse couldn't be more excited for the return of home cooked meals. If I'm being honest, I couldn't be more excited either :)
