Life As I Know It

There is no excuse for the number of poopy diapers and blows outs that I had to change and clean up before lunch.  I mean, I hadn’t even finished my coffee before the first one.  It’s completely unacceptable but more importantly what has his mom been feeding him?

I have to fill out some paperwork for my resignation so my manager emailed it to me.  None of it has been filled out, so I wrote back asking what’s supposed to go in the blanks on the form and I’m told to think back to my roles and responsibilities and fill it out.  Um….  That may work if I went to work last week and I’m quitting this week.  But hello the last time that I was working was HALLOWEEN.  Since then I’ve had a baby, moved across the country, and changed just about everything in my life.  Roles and responsibilities?  Feed a 12 pound human, make sure he gets the appropriate number of naps, feed my husband, and generally make sure the house doesn’t fall into the Earth.  Unless I’m told otherwise that’s what I’m filling in the blanks with because I genuinely don’t remember what I spent 6 years of my life doing.

In other news, I’ve finally gotten around to taking pictures of the house, but only the upstairs so you’re going to have to stay tuned for the rest.  In the mean time, here’s my upstairs:

I’ll get around to taking the rest eventually.  Maybe I’ll get inspired as soon as we get our family room furniture delivered.  Ugh!  It’s taking FOREVER.  Seriously.  I’m over sitting on the floor and now that it’s pretending like it’s going to be nice weather I would love to sit on the sofa, watch Lucas play with his toys and enjoy a nice breeze.  Looks like it’s going to be another few weeks before I get to live that dream.

And not because of the weather.  For once, it’s 70 outside and sunny.  I opened up the windows and enjoyed airing out the house

IMG_1271Molly was a little bit confused about the fresh air.  I don’t blame her though because I was too.

My adorable Lucas woke me up at 7am and then decided that he wasn’t interested in going back to sleep.  He was doing that this weekend but I was hoping it was just a phase.  It’s looking like it’s actually not.  So that’s….. great.  Who doesn’t enjoy being woken up at 7 am EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. by a human alarm clock with a broken snooze button?  So I started my day at 7 but doing laundry, picking up, washing laundry, all of the good stuff while my adorable child played with his toes, blew out his diapers, and then fell asleep for an early nap.  Kid, you’re lucky that you’re cute because I would like to return you to the store by lunch time.




I crafted a wreath for the front door.  I’ve been meaning to since we moved in but haven’t gotten around to it.  So last week I went and got the materials for it and while talking about crafting to my sister, she sent me a photo of the wreath that I was planning on making but hers had different flowers that I totally liked better.  So this weekend I went and exchanged my flowers and made my wreath while Lucas was busy crawling backwards:

The "R" is gold glitter

So there you have it.  What a busy day. (5k Nike Fuel Points and it’s only 5)
