Life is starting to get busier and more eventful with Covid in general decline and the weather warming up. The check engine light came on in the Trax at the beginning of March. Since we've only had it a couple months, we were a bit annoyed. We had the code read at an auto store and it was a known issue with the turbocharger. We brought it in to the dealer since it's under warranty and finally got it repaired. They gave me a rental, so I got to have a Trailblazer for 9 hours. I didn't even fill the gas since I only drove it home and back (shhh...don't tell them.)
I also got my first Pfizer covid vaccine last week. I was really excited to see some appointments come available. Both my mom and dad have received their first doses and Jimmy's parents are both fully vaccinated.
I received a very sweet note from Esme's teach with something she said. This shows me she understands love and what it means to a certain degree. She's the best.
Speaking of school, they finished out a month of fun Fridays with pajama day and school wide bingo.
As a lead up to spring break, I moved my desk to the basement. I've officially been working remote for a year now and I think it will likely still be a few more months. This will be a more quiet space when the kids come home after school and frees up our laundry/mud room again. I also got a new gift from my dad. He turned a segmented pencil holder for my desk. He is looking forward to me going back to the office so it will get some more press.
Parker's latest loose tooth finally fell out over the weekend. We've been waiting on this one for months. Esme got to use a small electric leaf blower at my parents' house and loved it. We may need to get one for home so she can help with yard work.
Our anniversary was a bit of an afterthought this year. We were supposed to be in Mexico last year, but didn't have any plans to spoil this year. We decided to have a gluttonous day with two rounds of take-out. Our normal Mexican spot wasn't answering the phone, so we ordered from another. It was all really bland, which was disappointing. Dinner was much more successful. We ordered our first pasta dish from our favorite local wing spot and Jimmy was in love.
Speaking of love, 139 days of waiting (and lamenting) for a PS5. He finally got one today. Luckily he was on vacation to get the twitter notification of a Target restock. He was able to reserve one for in-store pick up and grabbed it later this morning. I no longer have to hear about not having one, but that's already been replaced by other playstation related talk...
They've been watching a lot of movies during the day while I work. Esme is starting to enjoy more variety. Up is her current movie of choice, but she throws in some others too. She also likes to grab the coordinating stuffed animal to watch with.
We won't have a traditional date night on Friday, so we ordered some asian takeout tonight. We've been wanting to try Gion since we moved here and finally did it. Jimmy still wants to eat in for pho when it feels safe to do so.
