Happy Beltaine to all!
So here's the weekend...
Saturday was errands day. We drove out to Bagelmakers in Northboro so we could place an order for Saturday. We also decided to bin the idea of getting deli platters, as it would cost an arm and a leg. (We're talking $30-35 for each platter... three platters... you do the math.) We also hit Trader Joe's, and got more noshes for Marcus. After that was a run to Shaw's to pick up stuff for the weekend, and a few more things for Marcus to try -- bologna, primarily.
That night, we made up some chicken for him to try as well. Seems like the only things he really went after were the diced mango and the wheat mini-pita. He dissed the chicken and bologna. Hmmm.
Experimented with pouch cooking that night, making oriental noodle bowls with marinated chicken tenders.
Sunday was more errands: Living Earth, That's Entertainment, and Whole Foods (Framingham). More Marcus stuff. However, we're still trying to find frozen tangerine juice concentrate for a punch we'd like to do for the party. Might have to substitute something.
Dinner was gyoza soup and chicken fried rice, all homemade. Good stuff. Plenty of leftovers. Marcus was a little keener on the chicken, but tended more with the pita, biter biscuit, and peach dices. I think his teething is giving him some grief. We discovered through reading that when teething, babies can lose their appetite.
Managed to get a set of shelves moved from one room to the other. Also set up a lamp in the office room. Desk is prepped for the new arrival. Will be spending later tonight working on installing it and testing it with a game -- perhaps Dungeon Siege.
The main work of getting things reinstalled will take place during the in-laws' visit, as I'm sure they'll be wanting to play with the kiddo.
However, as far as the UPS online tracking is concerned, the boxes are still sitting at the distribution center in Shrewsbury. Mom said that UPS usually doesn't get to her neck of the woods until late afternoon, so I'm not too worried. However, Colleen made the comment that I'm like a child at Christmas. Well of course I am, this is a big thing here. :)
More later once things are settled.
