I’m starting this post on Tuesday night with NO idea where it will bring me. I don’t even know if I’ll have any photos to add to it. All I know is that my house is quiet now and I love it. Well, except for the sounds of Cody howling out the back door because he sees his twin cat that roams around here and I don’t think they totally love each other. Besides that though, Jay is off bowling, both boys are sleeping (wow!), and it’s just me with the most beautiful breeze blowing through our windows.
It was over 80 degrees up here in New York today, which I’m fairly certain was close to, if not over, the record. As much as I love fall for all things boots, scarves, cozy sweaters, and what have you…there’s still nothing like a beautiful breeze with the windows open at night. Who else feels me?
Tonight we had pancakes and bacon for dinner, which is basically the best thing EVER. Brinner = one of my favorites, forever and always. Tuesdays need to be quick dinners since Jay has to head out, so I’d be totally okay if Brinner Tuesday becomes a “thing.”
I feel like I haven’t eaten any vegetable other than a carrot in like, ages. The few times recently I tried eating salad again seemed to correlate with Alex being incredibly gassy, pukey, and having a very hard time sleeping so now I’m once again scared to eat my veggies. Some days this gets me super annoyed…I mean, I just want to be able to enjoy my healthy veggies, man! But then other days it’s like, meh, whatever. I’ll eat them again at some point. For now I’ll just keep living on carbs because I’d 110% take that over having to worry about a cranky, fussy baby who doesn’t want to sleep.
Speaking of sleep. Woah. Saturday night was SO rough. We thought we’d have an “easy” night since Lucas had a sleepover with my parents, but Alex apparently had other plans in mind. He was up from about 9pm-1:30am, then again at 4, then again at 5:30, then again at 6:30. I honestly don’t know how parents handle themselves when they have babies who do this on the regular. Alex is certainly not the best sleeper, but this was definitely out of the norm for him. I think I spent the entire day Sunday in a total daze and I could sense my frustrations building quickly and patience dwindling just as fast.
Switching gears a bit with no real good transition here…I feel like I’ve currently got my plate a bit overloaded. But I’m finding myself stuck between a rock and a hard place because they’re all things I either totally love with all of my heart (my kids, my family), equally enjoy doing in my “non-mommy time” (blogging, being an Usborne Books consultant), or can’t really take off my plate (my day job, taking care of the house, all that jazz). And everything is going SO well right now! Becoming a consultant with Usborne has been SUCH a fun and rewarding experience, and it’s something I had never expected to take on. Blogging will always be my baby, but some days I feel like all I have to share is……ummm, ramblings like this, ha!
In other news, my legs are TOTALLY sore from a workout I did on Sunday. And my neck, back, and shoulders are so tight and full of knots from all of the rocking/bouncing I’ve been doing lately, it’s not even funny. One of these days I’ll get out there for a massage again!
I fully realize that there is really no point to this post whatsoever, but I wanted to check in and say “hi.” So, HI!
Now I’m about to go fold the three baskets of laundry that are sitting up on our bed, but I hope you’re all having a great week so far!
