Job

Well, thank the lord! I gots a job. I start on Monday. I had an interview this morning and within an hour got a phone call with an offer! Yay! 

I need to go shopping! 

After 7 months off, going back to work will be a challenge. Hopefully mr goo will decide to start sleeping all night so I can too.

Outlander


I've been reading the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I just recently found out there's going to be a tv series based on the books. Umm yay!!! It makes me wish we had Starz. With a star like this... 




Can you blame me?? Hott!

Shoes!! Well, sandals actually. After finally busting through my last pair of old navy cheapies, I didn't have a single pair of easy to wear summer shoes... So I went shopping around the interwebs and here is I what I found.

I must be really into brown this year... And flat... Hmmm

What about you? Any new sandal purchasing this year?

Mother's Day

My mother's day was a good one :-)  it started out with mr goo sleeping all night!!! What an awesome gift. He woke up at 6:15, yay! Granted the next few nights have been multiple wake ups but there's some hope, right? (Of course monster was up a couple times that night but one kid sleeping all night is good news to me!)

After everybody got up and were eating breakfast we lounged around watching tv and taking cat naps. JT gave me a gift and card along with a sweet card from the kids. I can't wait to schedule my massage! I'm trying to decide when is the best time, weekday or weekend? 



We had lunch at a local Italian place, went for a nice Sunday afternoon drive and then just spent time together as the 4 of us. It melts my heart thinking of the years to come with my little kiddos growing up.

A few things

I love my kids, don't get me wrong but between the hours of 9 pm and 6 am, I just can't stand that they're awake. Is it so wrong to give mama a little break? 

Like in the Sheryl Crow song, I've been living on coffee and nicotine only without the nicotine and sub in ALL THE CAFFEINE instead. Will I ever get to sleep more than 4 hours in a row again?

I've been reading again, yay!, and remembered how much I like mystery-murder type stories. James Patterson and JD Robb being two recent authors.

Drove home the other day through torrential downpour. Stupid decision from the one who doesn't like storms. It was like driving through a sheet of never ending water. 

Mother's Day is tomorrow. Excited to spend the day with my husband and kiddos going to lunch and if it's nice, the park/farm zoo near our house. Which reminds me, need to get the grandmothers cards!!

Day in the life -- Thursday, April 17

Why is this taking so long to put together?!? I swear every time I've sat down to write this post, some one or the other needs something or cries or something!! I've been trying for a week. Anyhoo... here goes nothing.

Today is (was) Thursday April 17, 2014. Monster is 2.5 years old and Goo is 3.5 months old.

12-6 am
Feed baby, crawl back in bed, pray for more sleep x2

6-6:30 am
Feed baby, replace pacifier, hope for more sleep

7:15-7:30
Wake up, JT overslept, rush to get monster ready, Goo crying too

7:30-9:30
Monster and dad leave. Play with Goo, change diaper, feed baby, watch tv, feed self. Baby naps, clean bathroom, laundry, feed cats, do dishes, take out garbage and other things I get distracted by like the mail. 


 9:30-12:15
Goo is awake, we play, practice sitting, tummy time, check the weather, schedule a massage (Christmas gift from my mom!), get Easter clothes ready, text JT and Annie, more tv, more playing, feed baby, eat lunch, look for jobs, work on resume. 

12:15-3:30
Feed baby, talk to JT, drink caribou (yum!), shower, change baby x2, fight baby to sleep, laundry, hold sleeping baby (aww), read blogs, check instagram and twitter, watch twins game, mail time, feed baby more, monster comes home

  
     
3:30-6:30
Not many pictures from this time of day due to screaming children... and frustration. 
Start supper, screaming baby (oy! for an hour!), Monster screams too (not to be left out), Monster takes a late nap, hold the pacifier so baby sleeps..., try to eat supper, watch TV, eat frozen blueberries.


6:30-10:40
Nana arrives. Jt and I go to yoga. Get home, take out garbage. Monster to bed. Goo to bed. Feed him again, fight sleep again, I read, JT watches hockey game. Fight baby to sleep some more... what is with him today? Finally I crash out and hope that Goo stays asleep.
