I need a list. stat. I have so many things to do and choices about today that I know I need a list to help me focus. What I want to do is head out with Nicky for a long walk/thrift store excursion but what I maybe should do is save my gas $$ and just thrift alone tomorrow. But I also need to put up flyers for the children's resale in April and I don't really want to put that all off until tomorrow. I think I already know what I'm going to do. Can you guess?? :)
Here is a stack of magazines I received last week or the week before. I subscribed to a bunch of magazine for Christmas and it is so fun. I haven't even read all of these but it's good to know they are waiting for me. Of course, US Weekly should be in this pile but I discreetly put it in the bathroom for my husband after I'm done with it. hahahaha. I also get HGTV magazine which is a good one. Oh, and House Beautiful. I want Vanity Fair. Maybe next year. They always have such good articles to read. (kind of news-y yet gossip-y, too) I just remembered I get Clean Eating, too. Good Lord. Do I have a problem? I feel so guilty! hahahhahahahaha. kidding.
On Sunday the big kids and I met Wendy and her girls at the zoo. We spent most of our time at the little beach across the street, though. It has been so gorgeous out.
Nicky figured out how to open the patio gates. Of course he did. We have one of them banded shut now and have removed all stools that would afford him access to the latch on the outside of the other one. Tricky little bugger. A friend emailed me yesterday and reminded me that toddlers are a lot of work. They make her weary, too. :) They kind of are, aren't they? So sweet, though. He likes to cuddle up to me and say "hi" over and over in a very tender voice. He gives me and my glasses little kisses and pats me gently. He also yells "OW!" in place of no. It's funny. He also sings little bits of twinkle, twinkle little star at night. Oh, Nicky. How can he be nearly 2? (not that I mind...) hahhaha
It feels a little awkward that I wrote that super important (to me) and heartfelt post and no one commented on it here. I kind of wonder if you all think I'm awful or strange or I don't know what. But also, I kind of don't. You do develop thick skin after blogging for so many years. I'm very glad I got it all out. It was a big moment for me.
I'm got a hot date with the toaster right now.
Oh! That reminds me! Speaking of hot. My husband has lost about 13lbs in the past 2 weeks. He's been just eating less and taking a walk every day. HOW DISGUSTING! How can men lose weight so quickly and effortlessly??? My friend has talked about this before but now I see it first hand and it's sick. Of course I am very proud of him, too. VERY. We were laying in bed last night and all of a sudden he goes, "Oh!" and I was like, what? and he said, "I think I just lost another pound." HAHAHA. rat bastard.
