Hello errrrverybody. I hope you're all doing spectacular. Yes? Yes.
We're two weeks into this whole four-person family gig and things are starting to get a little better, a little sweeter, a little smoother... more smoothest. Most smoothest? Alrighty then.
The beginning of the week was just plain terrible: doctors appointments at ungodly early morning hours, poor sleep, a jealous one year old and a constant stream of house guests. Now mind you, I'm not saying house guests are a bad thing and many came bearing gifts of food (hooray) but it was becoming quite stressful constantly having to dash to put on a bra and pants, comb my hair, tidy up the house and make sure the kids are presentable. Sometimes mommy just wants to lounge on the couch with a beer and browse Pinterest for an hour or two without having to answer the door all day long. Is that so much to ask?
Last Sunday we got poor neglected River out of the house for a spell and took him on a much needed trip to the park. The weather was awesome and River was having a blasty blast until some creep approached him and crossed over in the the stranger danger zone by practically stalking him. This strange man was super focused on River and wouldn't leave his side so our visit to the park was cut short. As we were leaving I turned to look at the man and saw him swinging alone on the swing set. He was clearly not a mentally stable person but still, not a very desirable character to have hanging around a playground.
Today (Sunday) we went to church. This was one of the few times I've actually had a reason to put nice clothes and makeup since Cedar Girl was born. Sure, I could dress up to sit around the house and take care of two babies and plan a renaissance faire but um... that only means more laundry to wash. So no. I 'm not gonna do that.
Dress: Old Navy clearance rack months ago (first time worn today)
Purse: Salvation Army
Shoes: Walmart clearance
And this is Cedar's first time going to church AND wearing a dress!
The dress she's wearing was found in bin full of hand-me-down baby clothes I received from a friend. It still had the tags on it! Sweet freebie, yeah?
So that was my week. How was yours? Read any good books lately? or um, eaten anything good? Can I have a bite?
