I am sitting on my couch, watching Dora with my two-year old. It is a rare moment where he is paying more attention to the show than to trying to close my fingers in my laptop, so I thought it would be a great time to post. I miss writing on here. I was thinking … Continue reading Burning Desires
For the second day in a row, I have watched my 5-year-old board the bus for Kindergarten. A full day of school for the boys and a busy, much quieter, day of housework for me. It was bittersweet to watch Kayden ride off yesterday. I was excited for him because he is more than ready … Continue reading I Need a Nap
Today was a very long day. Spencer had an ultrasound on his head. Let's talk for a second about holding on to thirty pounds of solid muscle as an ultrasound technician squirts goop on his head and puts a wand on the soft spot on the top of his head, trying to see his brain … Continue reading Busy, Busy, Tired Mumma…
Spencer is my frog baby. He loves to jump and he giggles and he laughs and he thinks that he is the coolest thing since...well, the last shiny thing that he saw. When I was pregnant with him, I used to see frogs everywhere. The mother's day that I was expecting him, I got the … Continue reading Bouncing Baby Boy
Once again, I am facing a long weekend. My son, though, has his very first Karate class in the morning. He is headed to the Alfond Youth Center in Waterville. I am pretty excited because he is taking from a dear friend of mine. My baby has a big head. Literally. Off the charts, over … Continue reading So Much to Do, So Little Sanity…
As I look at my day today, I am tired but satisfied with my accomplishments. I swept and mopped my kitchen floor, got my dishes done, got some down time and got things all ready for the morning. I also made an appointment with an eye doctor. I am a bit nervous about that, because … Continue reading What’s My Motivation?
I was productive today. More so than I have been for the last three days put together. I did some traveling, talked with friends, and enjoyed the beauty of the day I was out in. When I got home, I began to pick up the residue of a three-day vegetation stint. I put a bathroom … Continue reading Refreshing
For the last two weeks, I have been steadily getting rid of the clutter that surrounds me. I have worked diligently, though not always cheerfully, on throwing things into the dumpster that occupies half of my driveway. I have had to close my eyes so friends can throw things out. I have sorted through bins, … Continue reading Wading out of the Crap
Well, with the help of some fantastic friends, my house is looking less like I am practicing to be on the reality show Hoarders and more like a home. Since I have had the mega dumpster, my friends have gone out of their ways to help me clean reorganize and most importantly purge. Out with … Continue reading Holy Migraine, Batman!
Juggling three kiddos at bedtime is ridiculous! One has school in the morning, one goes to bed at least an hour before the other two, and one likes to sleep with me. So I am trying to transition the five-year old out of my bed and into his own. Pain in the butt. Because of the crying … Continue reading Time to Settle in for the Night
