My Week(215) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, December 14th, 2014

I took a nap today, because I felt like I might actually die if I didn’t. I’m not even crazy sleep deprived or anything, I had just hit the wall of touched-out and busy and mentally tired of staying on top of everything. Caroline’s party is this Saturday and Christmas is next week and then we have one more visit to finish up 2014…and then I am never leaving the house again. 2015 will be the year ALL THE THINGS get organized and clean using only supplies I can order through Amazon Prime so I don’t have to wear pants.

He really likes the lights

I spent 30 minutes today gluing googly eyes to toothpicks for Caroline’s party (you’ll have to guess what for) and my plans for the evening include moving everything from my dining room to the basement so I can turn it into an under the sea wonderland. I am very far behind compared to previous party years. I’m refusing to worry though, because I will have LOTS of help with all the family in town, and I am sure they will be more than willing to hang up 100 green streamers and blow up 200 balloons. Or at least they will pretend to be happy to do it while wondering why I am insane.

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

I wore a lot of babies this week. I have to justify owning all these wraps somehow. Although I never thought I’d take/post so many selfies. What can I say, the wraps make me feel pretty.

The kids wanted Linc to play with them

Obviously I wore the nautical wrap to the seaport

Saturday:

Apple picking

saturday2

Goodest good baby slept the whole time

saturday3

This is almost not even like real life, right? Look at that huge empty field.

We had a busy week, and another busy week coming up, followed by nothing but busy weeks until Christmas. I don’t understand how it’s almost the end of October already, or how my baby will be three months this week or how it is almost 11 pm and I am still finishing this post and not sleeping. Time is such a jerk.

Yesterday was gross and horrible. Today is gorgeous and perfect. Welcome to New England in the fall. Or anytime, really. We don’t do in betweens.

Sunday:

On a treasure hunt

sunday2

I am really glad that is not my job.

Pirates love Friendly’s

Linc is not fooled by sneak attack kisses

I keep thinking it is only October 2nd or 3rd, maybe 5th at the most. This month is going surprisingly fast and I’m not very happy about it – November is the start of Winter Misery in Connecticut and Winter Misery with three kids is going to be extra miserable. But for now we are going to do all the fall things: Chowder Days and the pumpkin patch and hayrides and apple picking and dragging the kids around town to find the best places for fall leaf pictures.

My Week(199) in iPhone Photos

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Next week will be 200 WEEKS of iPhone photos, which is a lot of weeks. It will also be total chaos, between two different classroom orientations, two different start times, two buses, two schools, my first attempts at lunch-packing, all with a newborn in tow. Don’t be shocked if every photo is of a large Dunkin iced coffee. This week, no coffee, but certainly some questionable food choices.

Sunday:

sunday1

Watching HGTV while the kids destroy the house. This is our default mode.

sunday2

BEBEH SOCKS

sunday3

It took me a minute to figure out “Chief + Mrs. Davis” meant E + me. Formal titles are weird.

Monday:

Emergency food supplies

monday2

It’s been a very tiring summer

monday3

Hey girl, check out my hot tub

Tuesday:

tuesday1

I’m totally re-in love with baby wearing

tuesday2

THE BEST

tuesday3

Daddy multi-tasking

Wednesday:

wednesday1

Sleepy smiles

wednesday2

I asked her to bring me some diapers

wednesday3

Evening walk

Thursday:

thursday1

Climbing the one bazillion stairs in town hall

thursday2

This is as clean as it gets. I sense a large donation to Goodwill in my future.

thursday3

Everything is awesome…when you have a new Lego set

Friday:

friday1

The Dread Pirate Evan

friday2

Welcome to the jungle, we’ve got…cheesy music and a jingly lion

friday3

Baby Linc wants to know how long before he can have Five Guys

Saturday:

saturday1

That little finger just kills me

saturday2

Baby’s first restaurant! My kids are so New England.

saturday3

Caroline ordered spaghetti and meatballs and ate a REALLY impressive amount

So far my plan to Stay On Top Of Things is going really well, if you don’t count Linc’s first month update and this post both being a day late. The sink is still empty and clean, the toys are still organized and (mostly) off the floor, and I made it to the grocery store to get school lunch supplies. Now we’ll see how long actually MAKING lunch lasts before I start offering money for hot lunch instead.
