Okie dokie… I haven’t posted since Tuesday. I’m sorry. Love me still?
Let me catch you up:
WEDNESDAY: Honestly, this was a bad week. I’m sure I accomplished something on Wednesday, but it wasn’t deliberate. I’ve been in a fog, and I’m feeling much better now, but the middle of last week was rough. Needless to say, this always brightens my day.
THURSDAY: I found this fun trick on Pinterest from One Good Thing by Jillee.
I had a large container of yogurt (so much cheaper when you buy the bigger size!) that Bubbie and I were struggling to finish, so I took it and made these frozen yogurt drops. HE LOVES THEM. So easy, too (as long as you don’t care about having perfect dots). I poured the yogurt into a ziploc bag, cut the tip, dripped it onto a cookie sheet, popped it in the freezer, and waited a couple hours. Then I scraped them off the pan and put them into the empty (and washed) yogurt container so they could live happily ever after in the freezer for a guilt-free after-dinner treat. (one suggestion: next time I will use waxed paper. I think it would make taking them off the cookie sheet easier). Anyway, like I said, this kid LOVES THEM.
FRIDAY: I got two new filing cabinets for my makeshift office! WOO HOO!!! I have been needing these SO BAD, and I was thrilled to find them for cheap. We went to the State Surplus store (State Government agencies send their unwanted office furniture and equipment here for other agencies–and eventually the general public–to buy). We found a two drawer file and a three drawer file (the ones with one big drawer and two small drawers–my FAVORITE!! (yes, I have a favorite type of filing cabinet)) for $20 each. Do you know how expensive filing cabinets are when you buy them new? Go look. I’ll wait. Yeah, I got a great deal!!
SATURDAY: Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! <3 We made sure to catch the parade downtown–and of course, wear our green! My accomplishment for the day was a nap and an evening bonfire with excellent friends. Who says relaxing isn’t just as ‘productive’ as creating sometimes?
SUNDAY: Sunday was fun. Our very dear friends Sarah and Kevin got engaged on Sunday and we got to be a part of it. Kevin proposed to Sarah in a local rose garden, but when he asked her to marry him, rather than presenting her with diamonds he presented her with a fake plastic ring and a clue that started a scavenger hunt that covered more than 60 miles. We were clue #5. He is such a sweet guy, and she is a wonderful woman. I am so excited to be the Matron of Honor in their wedding this fall. In addition to taking part in their special day, I also got the house picked up and we got the grocery shopping done. I love relaxing weekends, and that’s just what we had.
TODAY: I cleaned Bubbie’s closet. Yikes. At only 20 months old, he sure had a lot of stuff in there! Among the items needing packed up and stored away for future kiddos were breast pumps (yes, two of them), a billion bottles, clothes he outgrew months ago, cloth diapers (that was short lived!) and shoes he never got to wear (my bad). I have to be honest, though: while his closet is clean, the hallway outside his room is a different story. Bedtime came sooner than I thought, so we’ll resume tomorrow.
Thank you for being so patient with me. I’m trying to be good at this. Do you have any suggestions for me? Anything you’d like to see? I’d love your feedback. :)
