Oh, you guys. I am totally tired out. Maybe hitting a wall? I am so flipping bored, too. Nicholas has been pretty sick all week but seems better today. Luckily we have plans for tomorrow or I'm not sure I'd make it. I was even considering taking the kids to the mall. I know, that's bad. (our mall trips almost always end in tears and promises to not go back for months.)
I pledged to myself in December that I would not wish away these winter months. There are plenty of fun things to do inside, I said to myself, and plenty to do outside as well. I didn't plan on all the teething and colds and sad things, though. These things are getting the better of me this week and it's time to bust on through. It's time to
TAKE BACK THE WINTER.
Okay, that just came out of nowhere. I don't have any grand plans but do know this: I am going for a walk today. It is cold out but I know that the fresh air will do me lots of good and Nicholas will be just fine if he's all bundled up.
Other things I'm doing:
baking cookies and granola (yesterday)
opening the bedroom windows for a few minutes every morning and making my bed
OH WAIT. I have to stop here and tell you about my new goody blanket that Patrick got me for Christmas. It is pink and soft and every single time I cover up with it I sigh happily. I'm not kidding. It's this one and I have wanted it for years. I owe the little elf that told him about it BIG TIME. Thank you, little elf.
Back to what I am doing to promote happiness and well being.
I guess that's it.
HA! just kidding.
I am also eating lots of salads this week. I actually had to go to the grocery store this morning because I was out of vegetables. True story. (I also got flavored creamer but whatever. I am not an island.) (whatever that means)
Showering (shut up!)
And really, that is it for this week. The bad part is that it's not working that well today. I woke up feeling really grumpy even though Patrick got home last night and we had a really nice time catching up.
(I even got to say that one line from Fight Club. I always love when I get to say that line. Do you know the line I mean? Please don't say it out loud as this blog is rated G but feel free to give me a mental high five.)
I wonder when I'll get to sleep again. Did any of you ever have babies that had this hard of a time when teething? (If your children happily slept through all teething, please refrain from commenting. thank you.)
Here is a good night for the pickles now, in case you were wondering:
(occasionally there will be a 8:30 check in but this hasn't happened for 2 nights so I'm pretending it's over)
10pm hi mom! can I see that nipple for a minute?
2am mom, what's up? um, if you don't mind...
6am mom! mmmmm, I love you. now give me some milk...
7:30am MOM! why are you waking me up?? (because if I don't it messes up the rest of the day.)
I usually go to bed a little after 10 and get up at 7. That last 45 minutes, between 6:15-7am, I just usually lay there luxuriating in my new goody blanket and thinking evil thoughts towards my soundly sleeping husband. It's a pretty good way to start the day.
Alright. Well, I don't know about you but I am feeling lots better. Thanks for listening and think twice before you get yourself knocked up. :)
P.S. I changed my header as that last one was depressing me. I love changing my header. xoxo
