Pull-up Saga

After four days of dry pull-ups, Jeremy had a setback with some pretty full pull-ups. But he was dry the previous two days and had a small wet pull up, last night. Maybe, just maybe, we will be seeing more dry pull-ups. We need him to go to the bathroom before he goes to bed.

Victoria Day Weekend

The only plans we had this weekend was to go shopping in Detroit on Saturday. And we did that.

Took about 40 minutes to get through the tunnel and about 5 minutes to get to Fairlane Green at I-94 and Oakwood. After buying some clothes and household goods at Target and checking out Best Buy we headed down Ford Road towards Haggerty to check out where the IKEA is and what is around in the area.

We were also looking for a place to eat - plenty of Applebee's, McDonalds and Burger Kings. Eventually we found a Ruby Tuesdays at Canton Centre and Michigan Ave and enjoyed an excellent early supper. Tina had a steak, Jeremy had mac and cheese, Corbin had mini-burger and I had a rib and shrimp combo. The ribs were excellent - juicy and falling off the bone. Everyone enjoyed their meal and we headed back to Canada.

I filled the van up with some gas at the Ambassador Bridge. It was about a 10 minute wait at Canadian customs. We declared our purchase and were sent on our merry way home.

The rest of weekend was kind of a bust because of the uncertain weather. No gymnastics for Jeremy on Sunday because he was coughing and feeling under the weather. Tina and the boys went through the toys and boxed some up for Babcia's place and some for the garbage. I didn't do much on Sunday.

Monday, the weather was a wee bit better. Tina took the boys to Lacasse Park in Tecumseh and I cut the grass (which needs to replaced) and did some chores outside.

Not a bad weekend. Relaxing.

Battlestar Galactica - "Faith"

Is there any doubt that Felix Gaeta is the final Cylon?

Remember what the 'old' hybrid said in Battlestar Galactica: Razor?

And the fifth, though still in the shadow yet clawing for the light, hungry for redemption, that will only come in the howl of terrible suffering.

If there is any character that has been more in the shadow, it is Gaeta? Hungry for redemption? People still mistrust Gaeta for his role in the Cylon-back government on New Caprica. And terrible suffering? Well, getting shot in the leg by Anders and possible losing your leg, sounds like suffering to me.

Okay. It's just a theory, but I'm betting on Gaeta.

A Dry Pull-up . . . For Four Days

Today was Jeremy's fourth day with a dry pull-up (actually it's three days plus one day without a pull-up). It seems moving him into his own bedroom has motivated him to stop peeing during the night. If he had told us sooner.

Separate Ways

So far, so good with the separate room thing. The boys invite each other to their room to play or watch a movie. Tina likes being able to send them to their own room when both boys are in trouble.

Yesterday, Jeremy helped me put up hooks for his housecoat and clothes. Just have to clear out the closet and some shelves and he should have most of his thing in his room.

Both boys seem to be falling asleep all right, though both of them did get out of bed and complain about being alone. Oh, get over it and get back in bed.

On Their Own

Today, the inevitable happened. We moved Jeremy's bed into the office. It was becoming difficult to get the boys ready in the morning and they are both growing, so having both of them play in Corbin's room was becoming problematic.

So Jeremy shares his bedroom with the 'office' aka home of the desk, desktop computer and filing cabinet. We moved the DVD player and monitor into Corbin's room. Corbin was told that despite it being his room, the Jeremy still has the 'right' to watch a movie in his room. Over the next week or so, we will clean up and reorganize the office and move as much of Jeremy's clothes and stuff as possible.

The long-term plan would see the filing cabinet, desk and computer move into the basement behind the couch. Or we may sell the desk and get a smaller desk just for the computer. Time will tell.
