My Week(331) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, March 11th, 2017

Between sick kids and cold weather I feel like I’ve been trapped in the house forever. If you’re in a similar situation, here’s today’s tip: Buy Moana and watch it at least 10 times. It’s amazing.

Sunday:

I don’t even object to this anymore

Fancy hair!

When you recognize your friends’ cars at Target…

Monday:

Snuggle naps

Not quite ready to go

Peek a boo

Tuesday:

Someone needs driving lessons

New baby kitchen location

Superhero-ing is exhausting

Wednesday:

Someone thinks it’s spring

Sibling snuggles

A+ Parenting right here. You should take lessons from me.

Thursday:

Big brother helping at Finn’s checkup

Well that’s one way to sleep

Nice kitty, soft kitty

Friday:

They’re pretending to nap. Badly.

Napping for real. Much more convincing.

Saturday:

Who let this kid drive?!

Almost 10 years in this house and we’re finally setting up the TV area nicely

In far less exciting but expensive home repair, we just had the stairwell fixed. Finally. E pulled down the plaster a couple years ago, thinking he could just patch it. But it ended up being a really big area and we needed to have the whole thing drywalled and taped and skim coated and primed. So we paid a guy. He just left. But that was the last major thing we needed to do to have a grown-up house that doesn’t look like it’s about to collapse, so yay? Not the most fun way to spend a big chunk of money but we feel very responsible.

My Week(329) in iPhone Photos

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

Basically all my photos this week are of children napping. But don’t let that fool you, that doesn’t mean I get to sleep at all. Hahahaha wouldn’t that be nice.

Sunday:

Working on the guest room makeover

E is a super villain, it takes all of them to bring him down

Blue Apron for dinner

Monday:

Passed out

Fighting crime

Snuggles

Tuesday:

Living the toddler good life

Lap naps are our favorite

Life is unfair for 2 year old

Wednesday:

Someone is tired of Target (IT’S NOT ME)

But he still likes the snow

This one was Hello Fresh and super good

Thursday:

They’ve reached a truce

Look, relaxing!

Reading nook is done

Friday:

More lap naps

Superheroes need cupcakes

Saturday:

Didn’t even make it out of his pajamas

CHEEKS

All those naps make one happy baby

I only seem to be able to blog every 3rd week or so, no matter how much I have to say or what happens. If this was a real job, I’d be the worst employee ever. Sorry, I can’t do any work this week, I can’t remember how to manage my time efficiently enough to eat food, maintain a very low level of personal hygiene AND accomplish anything.

Friday, February 17th, 2017

If the goal of the current administration is to make me feel like I’m living in The Upsidedown to the point where I can’t even watch the news anymore, GOOD JOB! Here’s last week, when I was only like, 75% burnt out on everything.

Sunday:

Home Depot trip

Super Bowl party food – made NONE of this

Finn making friends

Monday:

This McD’s is determined not to close, despite the fact that it’s torn apart

Crashed

New wall color in the kids’ room

Tuesday:

Testing out the reading corner

Donut time

She already knows these

Wednesday:

Linc stole my phone and took more pictures

These shoes are on kid #3!

A tiny bear helping me pick paint colors

Thursday:

I’m doing Weight Watchers again. Salad and tuna is my life.

Eyelashes

We got a little snow

Friday:

Sledding day

Too much snow to swing lolololol

It’s a tradition

Saturday:

Breakfast outfit

Snow cream for lunch

Two thumbs up for German Chocolate Cake

Today I cleaned out both dressers in the master bedroom and threw away all my underwear that didn’t fit or wasn’t comfortable. I have like 4 pairs left, but the fact that some of it was from HIGH SCHOOL means it definitely needed to be done. I still have a lot of work in the guest room, Linc’s room and the kid room to do, but at least now I’ve done something for my own benefit. If I keep being this stressed out the house should be totally clean before school gets out.

I was in a hurry to get this done because I thought I was still 2 weeks behind but that’s only because this week has been unbelievably long. I’m doing Weight Watchers again, and while I know it’s good for me, it means I literally just think about food all the time. Like right now. Fooooood.

Sunday:

So many couch naps this week

It turns out if you fold all the clothes, they DO fit in the drawer

Shopping buddies

Monday:

Nappy while the robot vacuum cleans

Napping while the baby naps

This is giving me life now

Tuesday:

Circle of neglect

Dentist day

This is the year they love the snow

Wednesday:

He threw a fit about something so I took his picture but that makes him smile

REALLY CONFUSED by that toy screwdriver

Trying to eat the cat

Thursday:

Coffee making chaos

Bathtime chaos

Happy fat baby

Friday:

He stole my phone, so there are 200 of these

Linc decided he loves hats

Cuddles

Saturday:

Picking out colors for their shelves

And then I took a nap, so I didn’t take any more pictures. The end.

I have made actual, discernable progress towards making my house into a place I like instead of just a place I live. As soon as I can talk my husband into helping me move the guest room furniture I can move most of the toys up there and then on the days when I can’t handle the mess I can just…shut the door. I’m very excited.

My Week(325) in iPhone Photos

Monday, January 30th, 2017

My wrist hurts a little less so hopefully I can get through this before any children need to be fed. Based on a very scientific method called “I told my friends my wrist hurt and they suggested it might be the same thing they once had” I have diagnosed myself with┬áDe Quervain’s tenosynovitis. Basically, yes, your wrist hurts, you’re a woman, you’ve recently been pregnant and you do a lot of baby care. That seems like a pretty definite diagnosis, even though the treatment is “take some ibuprofen and stop lifting so many babies”.

Sunday:

The plan is to turn this into a playroom that is sometimes a guest room

Lashes

My children are as good at ignoring me as I am at ignoring them

Monday:

Today’s task: clean the toys that were on the front porch

Shopping helper

The other baby needs cuddly naps too

Tuesday:

Everyone wants to help

Salt is important

More lashes

Wednesday:

This is not Linc’s bed, but don’t tell him that

The waiting room at my OB’s office has an actual working fireplace

No more pile of shoes by the back door!!!!

Thursday:

Help, I can’t find my body!

 

Remember: not being on Jeopardy makes you a failure

 

Belleh

Friday:

Good humans stand on tables, I guess

I give this a B+, will drink again

Saturday:

Caroline’s first protest

Good job, Hartford

Finn is still skeptical that anyone would be against equal rights

If my baby would agree to take a nap I could officially get caught up on blogging for the rest of the week, but as of right now he thinks biting me and laughing is more fun that sleep. It’s not my favorite. I’d much prefer crossing stuff off my to-do list, because I am on a roll and the chances that I might actually get ALL THE LAUNDRY IN THE HOUSE put away are pretty good. Miracles do happen.
