Daily Life: Leaving It All Behind

25 Mar

For the readers who come on a regular basis, you may have a few questions for me. Like how come daily posts have become every other day. What happened to the 20 million photo’s and one liner’s about being a mom. You may be thinking that I am losing touch and giving up. Oh are you wrong 😉

After all that spring cleaning I did in the storage, I have gone through a rampage of “cleaning out” things all around the house. I’ve decided the shabby but workable is out the window. I’ve been upgrading baby!!! I think I have put more stuff in the thrift store, consignment store, and give away pile then I have EVER in my entire life – besides when I got pregnant and gave ALL my clothes to T 😛 She looks better in them anyway 😀

I probably could have jumped on the computer and written this 2 hours ago but I was zoning out. Today I thought I had the day off and was going to knock a million things on my list to do but if you know me by now I sometimes don’t hear everything right and well you guessed it.. It’s next week I have off Friday not this Friday. So little P came over and the poor thing was teething so bad she couldn’t stand it. No matter what I did the little girl was in tears. An hour later I finally got her to take a bottle, eat some oatmeal (which both were a challenge) and I sang her to sleep.

I can remember when E was teething.. it’s just something that every mother dreads. Not being able to soothe your baby or “fix” whatever is wrong is the most depressing feeling in the world next to not knowing what the heck is wrong with them!! It took me a day and half to figure out that E was teething and that day and a half was a full-blown panic attack for me. She was the easiest baby and all the sudden she was the unhappiest baby. Minor fever, didn’t want to eat anything, and the whining-sobbing-drueling mess. Oh and I will never forget those diapers.. you mom’s know exactly what I am talking about!!

At 12:30 I gave P baby Tylenol (by parents request) and she took another nap and woke up the happiest camper ever! We were giggling, tickling, singing, playing, smiling, cooing, and still drooling 😉 It felt good to know that she ate a good amount and had a good nap behind all that pain.

After that B and I put together the new kitchen table & chairs. It feels so great to actually own a table that I am not paranoid it’s going to fall apart on me any second!! (Same with the chairs). Now don’t get me wrong, I love hand-me downs. I love things that run in the family. I love thrifty things. It’s so nice to take something knowing it doesn’t matter what happens or what you do with it, that it’s all yours and if it breaks in the process. Oh well..

But it was so nice to actually pay a good price for something that will last us a while and something we don’t have to fix or change. We love it from the start! Not to mention I have twice the space to do crafty things 😀 hehe. The problem was getting B and I to agree on where it works best in our little home. Haha. I told my mom there was blood, sweat, and tears but there was only me being stubborn, him being stubborn, and me getting emotional (tears). After all that chaos we now have it where it will stay for QUITE some time. I do not plan on rearranging that thing unless I absolutely have to!

Along with all the chaos I didn’t exactly get .. well .. anything on my list done so I’ve been a little off my game today.

The good news? B and I are going with friends from his work to see a concert in Richmond tomorrow night. We are leaving E with my mom and dad and staying with my college BFF for the night! YAY a night off, a night vacation, seeing my BFF, and going to a concert all in one night! HOOORAYY! Then B and I are waking up and meeting my high school BFF in Williamsburg. I get to see BOTH of my best friends in a matter of TWO days! Lucky lucky me 😀 I have the best friends ever.

So tonight I am letting it all go, I’m setting my list aside, realizing that I have tons of time to get it done later, and going to leave it all behind me and enjoy this weekend. Sure it’ll be a little stressful when I get back but since the weather is still crummy it’s not like I’ll be cleaning this place out and missing out on warm sunny weather 😉 (Trying to look at the bright side!)

I hope my rambling leaves you satisfied. At least you know what I am up to.. or not up to 😀

Love Always,

J
