Since buying our house in December I have had to re-learn the art of hand washing ALL my dishes and I actually haven't hated it as much as I thought I would except for one thing...washing those blasted drinking glasses. Some days, I may or may not, just swirl a little water around in the glass and call it good...today is one of those days :)
You probably just want to BYOG (bring your own glass) if ever invited to dine over...
I can't believe how quickly the 2 years have passed. Chase has brought such joy to our family and we count our blessings everyday that he's our son!! Happy Birthday (yesterday) to my boy boy. Here's some of the things we did to celebrate...
Had some friends come to visit
Devoured a monkey
Ate too much sugar
Played in muddy water
Outside fun in the rain
Went to the science museum
And finally...opened up presents!! I bought him a train table that I was going to bring out to him but he got so excited/distracted about the first few gifts we never ended up giving it to him. We'll have part II of opening up presents tonight.
We bought a house. A fixer upper in every sense of the word and we have the joy of living in a construction zone for the next few months. Actually, Phil and I are having fun with the whole remodel project. We started in Chase's room...because a happy kid makes for a happy home :)
Before...ALL walls were red...YIKES!!!
During...clearly we're not trying to be careful with the carpet. Phil scraped off the popcorn ceiling, retextured all the walls, ripped off the baseboards and moldings, and fixed the hole I put into the wall as I was trying to take down some shelving. Next on the agenda...carpet, paint, new baseboards, and new windows. LOVE it and love Phil for working so hard and being so good at EVERYTHING!
GETS FAT. I'm resigning myself to my fate. My doc strongly suggested no exercise for another 6 weeks!!!! That'll be a full 12 weeks without running during my first two trimesters. And I just bought new running shoes :(
On the plus side...no heavy lifting for 6 or more weeks which means I'm the self-designated manager of our move next week (ONE WEEK AWAY). Who doesn't like giving out orders :)
AND...I get to spend more time with this absolutely ADORABLE guy.
