Today has been one of my "do nothing" days. Meaning I did laundry, home-keeping and taking care of the kids and not a whole lot else.
My mom came over a little before lunch and I talked her into walking into our favorite pizza place to pick up salads for us to eat. She was much more presentable than I was and I was not about to go into the restaurant the way that I looked. I managed to put on my favorite black yoga-ish pants (which now have the smallest drop of bleach midway down one leg) and a "nice" t-shirt before she came. Baby Ellie puked all over herself. I was so relieved that I caught most of it in my hand and that the freshly cleaned hardwood floors were spared. I changed her clothes and then she puked all over me...and the hardwood floor just as my mom was arriving. I'm blaming her tummy troubles on teething, but who really knows!?
I'm on a break from the 30 Day Shred. I did it four days last week, and had planned on doing it three or four days this week, but I'm having shoulder issues. I'm pretty sure my shoulder hurts from doing normal little daily tasks while trying to hold my big ole wiggle worm! Baby Ellie is in that awkward phase where she desperately wants to crawl and she can't sit and play for more than a couple of minutes before she tries to get moving and falls or gets really mad and screams for her mommy. Once in a while, she gets really busy playing (like now) and I feel like I get a little break from trying to occupy her.
Big Daddy has a 5:30 meeting so he'll be late tonight. Once he gets home he'll eat dinner and then go up to the bonus room to do school stuff. Both Ellie and Maggie love it when he comes home, so it's hard for them to understand why he has to eat and run.
I did three loads of laundry yesterday and a load of diapers and still had a full load to do this morning. When I die, I'm pretty sure my tombstone will be shaped like a washing machine.
I'm officially ready for Spring. I know we still have a few months of winter ahead of us, but I'm ready for longer days, breaks from preschool and Big Daddy's school, long walks after dinner and trips to the beach.
