Babysitting blues

I didn’t have the best experience babysitting my nephews last night.

Let’s just say they were awfully naughty and one of them even ended up in time out twice. I am glad my brother and sister-in-law got out of the house and were able to go to dinner with friends.

Us in happier times, a.k.a. the beginning of my time babysitting them.

I lost at Jenga.

We also played Sorry, which I was sorry we did because the 5 year old didn’t want to follow the rules.

I guess my attitude wasn’t helped by the fact that I was very sick with tummy troubles.

I had a banana to eat there. I traded my usual placemat for eating at my nephew’s. :)

I also had a Dannon vanilla yogurt and a peanut butter sandwich later on at night when the 5 year old wanted to eat at 9 p.m.

This morning, my stomach still hurt, so breakfast was somewhat simple. Just Honey Nut Cheerios and coffee.

Then I hit the stores for some food. I went to a very busy Sam’s Club and ended up with some good deals. I picked up Chobani yogurt, Bolthouse Farms Strawberry Banana juice, chicken and beef fajita strips for Craig, feta cheese, Stacy’s pita chips, tortilla chips, strawberries and raspberries.

I was really disappointed because I went to a Pick N’ Save (grocery store) that didn’t carry any organic yogurt. I asked a store person if I was just missing the separate section and she said they didn’t carry any. How weird that most Pick N’ Saves separate organic dairy from the rest anyway. I told her “probably this market, huh” and she agreed. Guess West Allis isn’t an organic market yet! I had some Stonyfield coupons from an Earth Day e-mail I got yesterday and I went to the store all excited to buy some yogurt. Oh well! Guess I won’t be going to that location too often.

Whenever my colitis acts up, I am super hungry for days. I was ready to have lunch right away when I got home, so I made a salad with cucumber, red pepper, tomatoes, & feta cheese. I also had a strawberry Chobani and added fresh strawberries, Bonne Maman wild blueberry preserves, and Kashi Summer Berry granola to it.

Time to get something done here. Or I should really force myself to read a magazine and relax! I have been going non-stop the past two days. I plan to go to the gym later and then to watch Eat Pray Love tonight.

Have a great Saturday!

  1. Hey…at the very least the nephews are cuties! I never was any good around kids, although I did babysit at times. Kids tire me out and make me grumpy!
