This must be what hell feels like

Because of the heat I mean. The weather man said it would be cooling down, into the high 90's. It's a welcome change from 100 + degree weather. Hopefully the storms will move out and it won't be so humid either. I'm tired of sweating like a pig at a luau.

La Katie is settling into the bedtime routine better than Mikel. Mikel is a nightowl like his dad. He likes to stay up late and sleep in until noon. He wants to lay in bed playing his PS2 games or watching army movies where they shoot down the bad guys. I've forbidden the games and the army movies. I think they're too stimulating and that's part of the problem with getting him to fall asleep. He's not liking the new rules too well, but he'll get over it. Katie goes to bed without wanting to watch tv and no fuss. Thank goodness one of them goes to bed easily.

While cleaning out underneath my bathroom sink the other day I found some cranberry bath gel and a cranberry bath fizzy that I had bought during christmas. Of course La Katie noticed them and asked if she could have them. I had completely forgotten that I had them, so I let her take them. Later that night while she was taking her bath I looked in on her and the bottle of bath gel was now filled with pink water. Katie sat up and said, "look mom, it went bad!" That's a good excuse for using a whole bottle of bath gel in one bath. I had to give her credit for her quick thinking. She obviously gets that from her mother.

I'm trying to plan menus for the next two weeks dinners. I've never really done this before, so I hope it works out well. Hopefully it will help keep the grocery bill down. Dh seems really excited about it. He put in several requests. I'll be flexing my cooking muscles pretty soon. I'll be the Ahnold of cooking. No, that wasn't a typo. Say it with an Austrian accent. Go ahead, give it a try. You know you want to.
