Last night when I wrote this mostly depressing post, I was having having one of those pregnant lady moments, those tired mom days, one of those will-he-ever-get-a-job weeks, and it all came tumbling out like that. It's sometimes kinda stressful loving a baby you've never met and can't see, ya know? Your brain does crazy things and then Satan is all "Pssssst...you haven't really worried about things in a while. I can totally help you out. Because I'm generous like that." What a jerk.
Anyway, I am loving all the comments and support and lovely people who read and take the time to comment. In typical quasi-bipolar fashion, I'm feeling a whole lot better this morning. So thank you!
(2)Speaking of comments and lovely readers, I'm really enjoying reading and tweeting the posts you guys shared on my 1Year Bloggiversary entry. I still have a bunch to read and share, but I promise, I will get to every. single. one! And I hope some of you have found new bloggy friends. Good times in internetz land.
You don't even have to love dogs to love these. Am I right? So cute.
(4)Plus: winter is finally here! After 50 degree days in January in Michigan (true story, all ye skeptics), we woke up to MINUS 18 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT this morning. Zoinks.
This week, the kids and I made our very first batch of laundry soap. We used this recipe but instead of 1/3 bar of Fels Naptha soap for a 2 gallon batch, we used 1/2. Because my children are disgusting slobs and have the stains to prove it.
I'm about to wash my very first load of laundry with it, but will refrain from telling you how excited I am about trying it out. Because then you might know how big if a dork I REALLY am and I'll lose what precious cred....
Oh, who am I kidding. Dorks unite! Excited laundry washing!
And lest you think my hard-working children stay on task and do all my household chores for me, I assure you that they got "bored" (as normal children do) and decided to "borrow" the camera (as normal children do)
Next week, I'll share my how-to on the bedroom redo. As in, how-to completely redo your bedroom with $250 or less. Or $0 if you happen to have a gift card from a generous Old Friend.
Until then, stay toasty folks.
Or cool, if you're one of my Texas or Florida readers.
