Swinging is fun

 And now school vacation week is OVER and I get some Suzanne-time back. I love love love my children more than life itself, but there’s a point during the day where I want to lock them both in a closet. THE WHINING OH THE WHINING. It’s amazing what a difference 5 hours a week makes to my sanity and patience. Oh and P.S. World? Try not to go totally INSANE again next week, ok?

My Week(118) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

Our week started and ended with the same friends, although as of today they’re off to Guam and my children are left saying “Guam Guam Guam is faaaaaar away! Guam Guam Guam!” Guam is a funny word.

Do I have something on my face?

saturday3

Two cat pictures in one week?! Crazy cat lady alert!

 We’re going into week 2 of E’s crazy work schedule and so far I’m doing pretty well. The major reason I’m not freaking out is a spot opened up at Evan’s school for Caroline, so as long as I can get the immunization record from the doctor on Monday afternoon she starts school on Tuesday morning! My plan is to burn rubber out of the parking lot cackling maniacally and head for the gym on base, where I get 2 full child-free hours to take a class or restart C25K on a treadmill or just screw around on the elliptical trainer. Preschool isn’t cheap, but neither is a mental breakdown.

Also, I’m finishing up a few giveaway posts I’ve got in my queue, so if you like free stuff this will be a good month to be a blog reader. If you don’t like free stuff, come back on Wednesdays for nothing but cute ginger pictures.

My Week(117) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, January 26th, 2013

It’s cold in Connecticut. It doesn’t really matter HOW cold, since there isn’t some sort of contest for who-can-complain-about-being-the-coldest and once it gets down to below freezing everyone loses the contest anyway. As long as it’s too cold for outside activities my weeks are going to be especially uninteresting.

Sunday:

sunday1

Self portrait in the crosswalk button (Evan and I walked to church)

It’s amazing how quickly I am turning into a crazy coupon lady

tuesday3

…she loves him (and will copy ANYTHING he does).

Wednesday:

My kitchen window

I don’t even know.

She is 1000x more fashionable than I am

Pirate Captain Evan will drive his pirate ship into your face while you are trying to nap

Saturday:

It is hard to sleep in with this on your bed.

saturday2

Look, Ma, no hands!

saturday3

The casino might not be the MOST child-friendly place, but it is warm and good for running.

  E had to work today, but the kids and I met up with some old friends at Foxwoods for lunch and games and ice cream. It’s crazy to think when I met them I wasn’t even engaged to E and now between us we have 4 kids 4 and under. They’re moving to Guam in a few days (I am ONLY jealous because I’m so sick of the cold) so we’re trying to squeeze in another visit tomorrow – although Evan is going to be heartbroken when he finds out his new BFF can’t come to his birthday in April.

saturday3

Grocery shopping with a list, a budget AND coupons. I’m pretty proud of myself.

I’m not going to lie, dropping Evan off at school on Thursday was the highlight of my week. But it was the highlight of his week too – he’s already asked to go to school three times today (it’s Sunday) and Caroline is begging to go back to the play place. Now that the holidays are over we start the loooooong cold trudge towards spring in New England. It’s the only part of the year I actually hate living in Connecticut, although I do still love the aquarium, seaport and two children’s museums that all have nice, warm, inside activities.
