What a weekend

Originally uploaded by drjeeeol
We had the triplets' Baptism this weekend. It was our first travel experience with them. I learned that anything more than an hour and a half away is pushing it. Everything fit in the SUV on the way there, just not on the way back so we had to use space in Rob & Lisa's car. Everything went well and Charlie's first tooth even began to show this weekend. We also sold our house (and hopefully will have one to move into since we have 26 days to get out......

For those who asked what types of things to pack when traveling with triplets/babies/infants, here is the reminder list I made:

Bottles & drop ins
lids for bottles
diaper bag
plastic bags
burp clothes for the car/stroller
car seats
hand sanitizer
camera & battery charger
toys (books, rattles, etc)
baptism outfits
baby Tylenol
baby vitamins
Charlies reflux med
portable cribs?
water for bottles
pre-made travel bottles
Baptism forms
Church directions
cell phone chargers
bottled waters
stuff to clean the car
baby monitor
various outfits
Feeding schedule chart
food water for dogs!

The joyous time of mounds of laundry and putting gifts away & writingthank you letters is my plan for later today.

The insanity.

Originally uploaded by drjeeeol
So get this. As you know, we are trying to sell our house. When you have a house showing, lots of meticulous work goes into it. There is at least an hour routine of cleaning, hiding things, and maybe even baking cookies. So we get a call that we have a showing for after my luncheon. Normally, not a problem. I just have to take time off of work. I get home and the pool is making weird sounds. Are you kidding me with this? So I am frantically filling it with more water & tinkering with it after scooping the poop outside (I start outside and work my way in just in case I track dirt in- there is a system to the madness). Anyways- it fixed the problem. Phew.
To make it more fun, all THREE babies have a cold. And for those of you who are around, you also know that the witching hour of when all THREE babies have their meltdowns is between 4:30 to 6. When is the showing you ask? 4:30 to 6:30 was the window. No biggie tho. So lets make it more interesting. when we have a showing, we have to hide all the cool baby paraphenalia. That means the sanity saving jumparoo and activity mats as well. Plus Chaz was at a meeting from 4 to 6 and Looraine had softball. Son of a gun. So after exhausting house clean up and cookie baking, I am on the couch alone with three sick babies.
The people show up and were out front for like 10 minutes (takin pics, too). It was a 2nd showing. It was a caravan of 2 minivans. First a couple get out. Then a baby. Then another kid, then another, then another, then another realtor, and like 2 more people. It was like a clown car or something. So they come in, take a long time, do their thing. And then. they want to see the garage. WHAAAT?!?!? Are you kiddin me? I have THREE babies (one blowing snot bubbles the entire time that I was able to hide) and they want me to show them the garage where the dogs and a mess like no other are. Crap. Miraculously, the kids all behaved. I let the dogs out after I kicked all their kids out. They saw the garage, thought it was cool. And now we wait. Again. Of course, as soon as they left the meltdowns commenced but at least they waited for everyone to leave which was nice.

Cool luncheon

Originally uploaded by drjeeeol
Today's luncheon was with the new Director of Kennedy Space Center/NASA. He is a retired mrine pilot who also did the naval academy. He spoke about the 4000 lay offs coming up when the shuttle program ends in 2010. He is hoping to have U.S. humans on the moon in 2020. Other cool points of interest:
*Orville Wright's 1st flight was the length of the current shuttle.
*In the shade, the shuttle is in temps of neg 100 degrees. Near the sun, it gets to over 300 degrees.
*It takes 2 to 3 days to get to the moon but 6 months to get to mars.
*There are height/weight requirements but they also measure things ike the length from your hip to knee
*Not the softest landings- his Russian buddy had the crystals in his watch fall off on landing
*You are strapped to millions of pounds of hydrogen and when they start up the engines, it hisses and shakes.
*We hear the sonic boom across the state but they don't really on board b/c it is behind them.
*Bread really goes bad in space. Turns to crutons so fast. Fruit also doesnt keep well at all up there.
*He got to watch meteorites enter the atmosphere underneath him while thinking how glad he was they didn't hit him.
*He said watching the lightning storms over Africa was super cool.
*His most important tools on board are scissors to open food and a spoon.
*No microwave on board- they use up too much power.

He had a ton of space stories, I could go on and on. He was a top fav.

Charlie: 15
Katie: 11
Will: 14

Why having your house on the market bites.

This is the crazy check list of what goes on be each house showing, hence why I hate having the house on the market (I am sure I will forget a few things):

*vacuum entire house
*take out the garbage
*Fabreeze if necessary
*hide dogs in garage (that is a task in itself)- hope to have dog bones
*turn on all of the special lighting in each room
*clean bathroom including counter tops, mirrors, dog food container, towells
*light candles in bathroom around tub
*Open bathroom blinds
*Maybe have laundry going so laundry room smells like Bounce
*Scoop the poop in the back yard
*hide dog beds under the bed
*turn on lamp, open blinds, light candle in master bedroom
*make sure bed is made, hide Kleenex box under pillows, clean off night stand
*Go to kitchen & clean granite, then use granite polisher
*clean appliances w/ stainless steel polisher, hide towells & anything on counter tops
*Polish/Pledge wood furniture/ dust
*Open all doors to rooms, check lighting
*hide all baby bottles, nipples, paci's sterilizers, etc in garage (ugh)
*make sure all dishes are done
*if not doing a crock pot, bake cookies & turn on fancy stove/microwave mood lighting
*open kitchen nook windows
*take bar stools off couches (to keep dogs off them at night)
*light candles on kitchen counter
*turn radio on for outside music
*make sure pool is on
*turn fans on
*hide any mess in the laundry room
*hide diaper pail
*Hide jumparoo, safety fence, all the activity centers, balloon, toys, and anything big baby related from the living room (ugh)
*Play classical baby music in background
*Open blinds in dining room, light candle in there, and open blinds around door and in living room
*Check front door for appearance (bring in garbage cans) and pull any algae out from the front pond
*Check trees'hedges for pruning
*Chances are it will land over a feeding time so feed some babies (and hide the dirty diapers!)

*Greet the people, tell them the dogs are in the garage (which is great b/c our garage is trashed w/ extra furniture- we wouldn't want them to go in there!). Offer to take them to the river out back.

*As soon as they leave, hit all the lights off, blow out all of the candles, put ALL of the baby stuff back in the living room and kitchen, close the windows, let the dogs out, put the bar stools back on the couch, take the dog beds back out from under the bed, shut all the blinds, turn off the radio outside, turn the toilet back on if it was making noise, put away the cookies

and we do it over and over and over again. It esp sucks when you rush home midday from work to do this and then the people show up late. It is exhausting! We had 4 showings over the weekend, two of which I think were very interested but they didnt like the subdivision (neither do we!). Will keep you posted.

Today's luncheon

Just had a luncheon with my favorite judge again. This guy is so cool. He was in the marines, Was a cop. Then went to law school. Then did the Navy thing. Then was a secret serviceman. Then he was under cover for a year as a Pagan motorcycle gang member where he busted all the drug dealers. Then he ran for judge and didnt get it so he chartered a 36 foot Spponer boat, than ran again and became a judge on 96 and puts people away and sentences some to the death penalty. He is at the same court house where the Casey Anthony trial is at. Such a personable fun guy!



So 365 days in a year. So I was thinking to myself that Day Light Savings must be coming up soon. So I go to check the calendar and guess what day it is on? Our flippin anniversary night where we are going to a hotel to sleep for 12 hours. Make that 11 hours. :( What a kick in the pants!
