I’ve kind of been in a bad mood the last couple of days. I don’t really know why, kind of a combination of a few things I guess, including not really feeling well. I think I’m trying to stay ahead of a cold or something. Yesterday my throat was killing me and I felt kind of achy and yucky. I felt a lot better today, just tired.
Yesterday I was just in this funk. The kids were whiney and fighting with each other and I just felt like crap. Ryan even tried to cheer me up by transferring my “paycheck” to our checking account a few days early and sent me out to Target last night for a little break. (which reminds me… lookie what I found here for all you fellow Target lovers. Notice the quote: ”This site is not associated with Target Corp. We love Target. Can’t get enough of it. Want to marry it.” Made me laugh… cuz it’s sad but true.) I picked up a few things… a couple of shirts and a pair of jeans for me, some shoes for Sawyer, some $3 pants for Savannah, and some Halloween candy for Ryan. I guess it cheered me up a little.
This reminds me of this one time a long time ago Savannah was playing with her Fisher Price little people… she was driving a family around in their car and they made their way to the "Target store" (that's what she used to call it) which was under our dining room table. Savannah ended up bumping her head pretty good and came out crying. I gave her a little hug and asked her if she was ready for lunchtime. She said no, still crying a little. I asked her if she wanted to go back to playing little people. She said no, still whimpering. I asked her what would make her feel better, and she answered, “I want you to take me to Target store.”
Pretty telling when a two year old asks to go to Target to make her feel better! Guess where mommy shops a lot?
Sawyer decided to spend close to two hours awake and fussing this morning between 2 and 4 AM. So he ended up sleeping in this morning and then took a nap from about 11 to 1:30… and decided that was the only nap he needed for the rest of the day. I tried to lay him down at about 4 PM, but no go. So needless to say, we had a very touchy baby on our hands all evening.
I need to get my butt in gear on a lot of things around here. I just can’t seem to get ahead of the game. I’ve actually been doing pretty well on keeping this place cleaned up and keeping up on the laundry and dishes and stuff. But it’s about time this place could use a good deep cleaning, and I have no desire to do that. I’ve got four packages I’ve been meaning to get together and get out in the mail for quite a while. Sorry Heidi and Holly; maybe Taegen’s will make her birthday on time. And believe it or not, we actually got Grandparent’s day (Sept. 10th) cards for all the grandparents, but do you think those ever got sent out? Maybe by next Grandparent’s day.
I just feel like being so out of it for a few days with my wisdom teeth ordeal, in the midst of having family in from out of town, and then scrambling for our camping trip, I lost some time in there and I’ve just never caught up.
I feel like I need someone to come in and get me reorganized, or give my house the once over, or take my kids for a day or two so I can do that. I just want life to slow down for a minute!!
Two other up's...
~Gas prices, yay! Ryan paid 2.08 per gallon today. Three months ago it wasn't surprising to see it at 3.08!
~I finally made an appoinment for a haircut. Maybe that's just what I need;I'm sure a fresh new look will help my mood. As long as it doesn't turn out horrible! HAHA! Luckily, you can't get much worse than it is now!
There’s a recap of the first two seasons of Lost on tonight. To refresh before the Season Premiere next week. Can’t wait to see what’s going to happen this season!
Well, I’m going to watch a little of this Lost stuff and get ready for bed. I’ve had a monster headache all day that won’t go away. I’m just hoping it’s gone by morning...
How many more days till the weekend???
