So I'm a little early, but I have lots of blogs to visit tonight and I think it might be a long one with my cranky little guy...get comfortable - I have a lot to confess this week...it's been a good one!!
I did not use my On Demand feature to watch MTV's "The Hills" almost all day on Thursday. This was not after sleeping until after 11. I would never sleep that late and then follow that up by gallons of coffee and crappy reality TV.
I am not totally rocking out to Barry Manilow singing Jingle Bells - nope I'm cooler than that!!
I did not use a diaper to wipe up the ice cream from my little buddy's face and hands. If I did it would have been a cloth diaper, not a pull up that I happened to have found at the bottom of the bag. Its not like I completely forgot to pack wipes in the bag. And if I had forgotten to pack wipes I would not have forgotten to grab a handful of napkins from Ben and Jerry's before I took my toddler to the bench on the other side of the mall to sit quietly and eat our ice cream. As a mother of a toddler I would NEVER forgot the necessary cleaning accouterments.
I did not tear up just a little watching Tommy prepare the heart for his stuffed penguin at Build-A-Bear. I was not taken aback by how big he is getting and the fact that he doesn't need his mommy to show him how to follow directions anymore. I was not both proud and sad of my little boy growing up.
I did not pull everything from my gym bag and just shove it in the washer so I could have it for tomorrow. Of course I went through everything and found my razor, shampoo, face wash, and lotion. I did not end up throwing them in the wash with the clothes, I am not that careless.
I did not run the washer earlier this week, but completely forget to put in any detergent and fabric softener - I am not that much of a spaceshot.
I did not decide to re-upholster the kitchen chairs finally, having bought the fabric months ago. If I did decide to finally start it, I made sure to check that I had all the necessary tools, like a square head screwdriver and a staple gun.
Apart from my transgressions, it has been a great weekend. Yeterday was a productive one, we managed to get a lot of cleaning done, and just had a nice family day together. Today was another nice day, although a lot lazier. With the first snow of the year it was hard for us to motivate. I did go out and buy my staple gun (fortunately I found a square head screw driver in my tool kit) an managed to finish one chair. I am almost done swith the second, but have an unhappy reflux-y teething baby in my arms (finally asleep again) so I might just have to wait a little longer to finish.
I am really hoping this week to finally have my new bloggy site up and running. Its not going to be anything big - but maybe it will grow...And don't forget if there are any bloggy questions you need answered or need help with, give me a shout...I am planning to post tutorials on my site. Wish me luck getting it going - I must admit I am a little nervous doing this....
....Put baby to bed....finish chair....type a little....pick up crying baby again...poor kid!!
anyway...here are pics from our fun day today - Jack's first snow!!
