My Week(287) in iPhone Photos

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

I am now at one full week of constant coughing, which is much worse at night, so I’m functioning at about a 3/10. My house is a disaster. Do not come over.

It finally looks like spring

I am hopeful that the week of rain we’re expecting will wash away whatever I’m allergic to and I will finally be able to sleep somewhere besides sitting up on the couch. It’s really exhausting. All I want to do is lie down completely flat and pass out for 12 hours. That was so much easier to do before I had all these kids. So many kids.

Fingers crossed I don’t actually cough up a lung. I need both of them.

Caroline can’t hang past 8 pm.

It is now the worst part of the year, where it’s always winter but never Christmas. We haven’t had any remarkable snow yet, which would at least give us an at-home-jammies day and I could take the kids sledding to wear them out. Luckily they CLEARLY seem to be getting enough activity to be tired anyway.

There are a couple of snowflakes on my weather app for next weekend though, so I’m hopeful.

Monday, October 5th, 2015

Pretend today is Sunday instead of Monday and this isn’t super late. Except that if it was Sunday I wouldn’t be getting this nice 60 minutes of quiet to watch Dateline repeats and blog because my baby decided sleeping was stupid and we spent the whole day outside trying to wear him (and the big kids) out. So just forgive me for being late.

Sunday:

sunday1

It’s a whole set for playing while moms take photos

sunday2

We agreed that painting pumpkins was OK even though TECHNICALLY it wasn’t October yet

Someone was really sure he didn’t need a nap last Sunday too

saturday2

saturday3

Sleep! That’s where I’m a protractor! (Most random kid’s meal toy ever.)

My computer just decided NOW would be an ideal time to start acting up, so I’m going to go bang my head against a wall and moan. Seems like the best use of my time. I would really like it if things could just be NORMAL and BORING and AVERAGE for the rest of the week. Boring sounds really nice right now.

Happy weekend!

E was supposed to be at sea but he is not, so we had a nice Father’s Day at the zoo followed by pulled pork and ice cream cake. The kids announced THEY had the best Father’s Day, so I think it was successful. I really like the kind of family fun day where no one has a giant meltdown and I get to eat ice cream cake.

Off topic: I got a Fitbit this week, and my desire to get to 10,000 steps a day has been GREAT motivation for me to move. I also really love that it’s giving me extra points in my Weight Watchers app, because ice cream cake.

This is not a very good picture but I love it so, so much. They’re closing the FAO Schwarz in New York and I’m so excited the kids got to visit.

saturday3

New York wore him OUT

I have a severe case of the End Of Year Moms and almost no motivation to do anything besides take the kids fun places and drink iced coffees. I’m fighting hard to make it to June before I start letting the kids skip to go to the beach just because it’s too hot to sit on the couch with a baby on me. We have a lot of summer fun planned and I’m afraid we won’t have time for all the un-planned fun as well. This past weekend in NYC was a good start but we have a LOT more to do.
