I feel that it has been a while since I wrote a truly interesting post, so I thought I would attempt to do that now since the kids seem to be playing nicely for a few minutes at least (Of course it totally makes sense to do that instead of cleaning the house or something useful :) Hey don't judge, I am finishing my coffee while writing and then I will attempt to do something useful ;)
Now I can't promise this will be interesting, but I thought I should fill you in on what I have been doing. . . and that is trying to catch any five min of sleep possible :) You see, my kids have been sick for a very long time. First it was the younger three one by one coming down with ear infections. Then Macy got a sinus infection and the last most crazy of all, Brooklyn came down with the stomach flu. Poor girl. She was throwing up all night. I swear it must have been 20 times. starting at 11 pm and ending at 6 am. I felt sorry for her...and myself ;) I tried not to, but it was rough. :) Anyhow, my point is...I don't get much sleep lately, so I have been tired and not up to too much (well, besides what is necessary.
But, a few things have been established to make my life easier.. one is...Thursday evenings off :) It's like a little tradition. I make pizza for Hubby and the 3 older kids and when he gets home...i take off. :) They eat together and play and generally have a GREAT time and so do i. This is when I take care of the list I have created all week long. Groceries and returns or a visit to a friend (RA?) :) ALONE! :) well, Macy is in tow, but that's different. She doesn't talk back :) Yet! :) So, I am looking forward to that tonight.
Lastly I have been really getting into organizing. I am kind of (fine, a lot OCD :) So this is super fun for me. This week I cleaned out my linen closet and made tons of space for the kids toys. Super nice cuz then they know exactly where to go look when they are bored (so ky is always in that cupboard ;)
Today i am clearing off the top of the refrigerator :) The next project will be the hall coat closet. Downright embarrassing how crazy cluttered that is and then the kids toys. I am clearing out half (or more) These kids don't even play with half their stuff. Our house is cluttered! Enough is enough.
K, I am off! have a super day.
P.S. I am FINALLY back down to my lowest weight since Macy. 9 more pounds til Pre PG. weight. :)
