My Week(362) in iPhone Photos

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

We had a storm Sunday night. I ended up sleeping on the couch because it was so windy and loud on the top floor where my bedroom is. Then the cable and internet were out. Then the basement flooded. On the other hand, we didn’t lose power here at the house, but because it was out in other towns our super crazy busy afternoon ended up being a pretty relaxed afternoon. I’m still so tired I almost fell asleep in the McDonald’s drive thru.


My little pirate tried her first macaron

The face is part of the costume, he liked the cookie

Why does Linc look like he’s 10?


Literally the only photo on my camera roll from this day


Playing trucks while we wait for the bus

Package protector

I bought 4 of these in August when I heard they might be popular. I guess they’re not THAT popular.


Hello gorgeous

He’s getting so LONG

Things that went through the washing machine this week




Caroline’s teacher suggested she might want a retake. Caroline couldn’t figure out why, she LOVES her picture. So we’re keeping it.


Fell asleep face down in the cookies.


Fancy fall hair

My little monkies on their favorite boat

He demanded I take this photo

I have this horrible cough that will not go away. I think it’s allergies causing post-nasal drip that’s clogging up my lungs, but whatever it is it’s ruining my week. I have these coughing fits that sound like I’m an old-fashioned lady dying of consumption. It causes a pounding headache and keeps me from sleeping. MOST of the time I’m totally fine and don’t feel sick at all, but then I get hit with an episode. Too bad I can’t take the nighttime cough meds during the day, That stuff is amazing.

More new bathroom! I love my new bathroom!

I’ve been having a bit of a battle with the school slash school bus company and today I won. I’m so relieved. As much as we really like being busy and on the go, I don’t like being late, breaking rules, or writing bitchy emails. Ok, I SORT of like writing bitchy emails, but not over and over. But starting next week we should just go back to regular busy – now with 100% more karate for Evan!

I AM SO READY TO HAVE CONSTRUCTION PEOPLE OUT OF MY HOUSE FOREVER. I swear to god, the number one advantage in DIY home improvement isn’t cost, it’s the fact that you can stop and use your kitchen to make a sandwich if you want without being in anyone’s way.


Someone made some poor choices

Really tired of gymnastics nursing


Still asleep when it’s time to leave for camp

Book Barn adventures

Why do we even own toys?


I swear I’ve taken this photo every week all summer

Watching for ugly fish

He refused to move until I took his picture

You can see through my walls

Waiting for the bridge to go up

I took a picture so I could go buy an identical diverter and I still got the wrong one


No stop don’t run away

I don’t know what’s behind me

Being an A+ big sister


Seussian shenanigans

Thing 1 and Thing 2

Super cool art and play space

I’m trying to pick a grey paint color again and it’s making me insane. Because why not spend three days agonizing over paint colors when the painting has to be done by Saturday?

Still several weeks behind. I’m at the point where I can’t remember what some of these photos are from. I’m also very surprised by how often we leave the house, because it definitely feels like we spend most days shouting at each other in the living room.


Caroline is currently obsessed with bows

Should I eat these animal crackers or the shoe? It’s a hard decision.

Such a cutie


Catching creatures in the Mystic River

Ok, bye, check in later?

I should set up a tub and washboard at home.

Look at that enormous baby

He can sleep ANYWHERE

Trying to get his own snacks now

Less than a week until birthday party go time and I literally cannot reach my dining room table because of the sheet rock all over the room. Which is great! Fine! I’m sure I can get ALL the party planning done between 8 pm Friday and 2 pm Saturday.

I HAVE LIGHTS IN MY KITCHEN THAT WORK. They’re actually insanely bright, daylight bulbs and I want to just live in my kitchen now. I mean, except for the fact that it’s filthy and the walls aren’t finished. BUT, LIGHTS!


Mystic family time

Miniature figure heads

This puzzle is really hard


Mommy, take my picture

I have one more week to get my life and house together before Linc and Finn’s birthday party. I can only do that once the sheetrock gets out of my dining room. Pray for me.
