Pete's Surgery

Pete had his surgery today.  He was a great little trooper.  He wasn't able to eat after 7.30 this morning and had stop drinking at noon.  He did fine and didn't whine about it once.  We headed down a little early so that we were there and weren't around the house with him trying to stick to our normal schedule of eating snacks  and such.  We did a bit of shopping in Indy before heading to the surgery center.  Once we got in and got checked in we found out the doctor's other surgery was running behind and had some issues.  I had some Shaun the Sheep episodes and we all zoned out on those while waiting.  The nurses were a bit worried and came to check on us because he was so quiet and content.  Even when they came to get him he was fine and didn't even seem to miss us!  He woke up with no problem and didn't even cry for the nurse then!  Granted we did leave them a pacifier, but still.  He has two incisions and had to have a hernia fixed along with the other work that needed to be done.  He slept the whole way home and is currently snoozing away in his crib, snuggled up with his new Timmy Time sheep.

It is official!

Summer is here!  Nothing screams summer more than the first Popsicle of the season.  Pete ran around the yard with his watering can in his swim trunks this afternoon and played in the water for a bit, cooked up a bit in his kitchen (that is still sitting in the garage) and played on the slide and swing.  A busy day for a little boy.  Pete is loving his kitchen still, though I need to get busy sewing him some food for it since I have all the stuff to do it, everything but the time!  I've been working a bunch lately since my job opportunities will go away with the school year ending.  I've also picked up a bunch of side projects from people so it keeps me busy.  Pete has been extra lovey to me because of it, so I won't complain about snuggling and watching some Timmy Time together.

We have really bad luck.  So far every house that we have liked has had something happen first house 1 week late on financing and offer, 2nd house financing issue, 3rd house accepted offer same day as we are doing ours.  Lame.  I am sick and tired of the entire thing.  I feel like we have looked at every stinking house in town.  Ugh.  Now our apartment complex is requiring up to say if we are moving out or extending!  Dread.  Hopefully we will know what to answer them shortly, but as of right now I have no clue.  Part of me wants to say forget it and just be lazy and rent, but part of me says maybe a decent house will come around and we will get lucky.  I don't know, but hopefully something happens that we can decide on!
