You Know You're Jealous of My Weekend

First of all, let me just say that I am positively giddy right now about 2 things:

1. COOLER WEATHER IS COMING. I am going to wear long sleeves and boots and scarves in the foreseeable future and for this I praise the Lord. 

2. GRANT FIXED THE INTERNETS. Y'all, we have lived in this house for almost 5 years. WiFi is great in the front part of the house, but no matter what we do, no matter what provider we have, no matter how much money we pay, we can not get a strong WiFi signal in the master bedroom or the living room or the kitchen. And you know where I live? The master bedroom, the living room, and the kitchen. Apparently there's some kind of fire blocking in our walls that interfere with the signal. WELL. That ended TONIGHT. Grant finally had enough of it all, so he used the skills he learned when working for his family's home security business to remedy the issue. He got himself up in the attic and rewired some things and drilled some holes in some walls and dropped some wires and cables and things like that (I have no idea what I am talking about) down through walls and HE FIXED IT. You know how in Cast Away when Tom Hanks rubs the sticks together to make fire? The feeling of accomplishment he felt? That was me tonight. "You made the internet, babe! YOU DID IT! YOU MADE INTERNET HAPPEN IN THE LIVING ROOM!" He was so proud of himself. It's going to be a whole new world!

So, now that there is lightning fast speed happening, I am feeling motivated to write and post something to the lightning fast internet. Let's review a bit from this weekend, shall we?

Saturday night I got to go to a Hibachi Grill to celebrate my Granddaddy's 81st birthday.

Hibachi was fun (I haven't had it in a very long time) but Ellie did not have much fun. She spent the vast majority of the meal with her head in my lap or burying her face in her daddy's chest. When the flames would get big, she would cling to me and say "In the car, Mommy! Go home! Let's get in the car!" 

Also, on Saturday my child pretty much refused to eat anything. At. all. Even when I offered her her very most favorite foods, she was not interested. French fries. Blueberries. Not having it. She never once asked me for a snack the whole day (this has not happened since 2013) and I put her to bed knowing that she had to be starving but I couldn't make her eat. So, naturally, at 1am, she called for me and frantically told me that she needed a banana. 

We sat up eating a banana, some blueberries, and some Cheddar Bunnies at 1am till 1:30am and we watched Curious George since Mommy needed to sleep while all of this was taking place. When Curious George was over, she handed me her bowl and said "All done, Mommy! I go night-night."


The other major that I did this weekend was this:

I'm somewhat of a history nerd and this is a particular topic that I haven't really visited since high school and college. I am ashamed to admit that I had totally forgotten about FDR's election to 4 terms. I found the whole series to be really interesting and it taught me a lot about WWII and what the country looked like in that era. If you're into this kind of documentary, I highly recommend you watch it. I think PBS is continuing to air it (there are 7 episodes total) and I think I read somewhere that it is on iTunes. As you can tell, being 30 is full of wild parties and crazy weekends full of tomfoolery and shenanigans. 

I'm going to go unload the dishwasher now because the American history documentary on PBS was not enough excitement for me.
