(1)Whew, I'm a dork. Did you know that I went through the entirety of yesterday thinking it was the 13th? And I even wrote our arrive-aversary post and patted myself on the back for being so "with it" and "organized" and "not at all in a postpartum daze"? Opposite day, friends! Totally not with it or organized and so very much in a postpartum daze!
Oooooh, you know what else hip and modern and junky people do? Virtual 5Ks!
I'm totally doing this. Because even if I'm still shuffling by the end of September, I think I can put that in the "limp" category. Winning! Plus, does that crawling dude not just kill you?
Read the original post here and yesterday's update/faux link-up here and then you really must, must, have to, must, totally need to do it too. Community! Accountability! Being svelte!
Hah! Svelte! As if.
I need to lose a minimum of 25 lbs still, but it's a whoppin' 34 in order for me to enter the svelte category. Now y'all know I'm not super good at math, but I think I'd have to lose, like 10 lbs a day or something to manage to accomplish that by 9/29. Super healthy, yes?
Earlier this week (see how I'm not even bothering to segue? Just roll with it, y'all.) my cousin brought her mom and her kids to meet baby Mary. So I didn't do the laundry that day. One day. I skipped the laundry for ONE DAY and just look at what happened:
That's a lot of frackin' clothing, my peeps. And the big girls weren't home to yell out the door if one of the littles started, I don't know, sticking a fork into an electrical socket or something, so I would hang a few pieces, scurry back inside to make sure newborn was still sleeping and toddlers were still alive, then scurry back out to hang 3 more pieces then scurry back in then scurry back out....lather. Rinse. Repeat.
Also, I was wearing a wet blanket over my head. True story.
So you wanna see another picture of my baby sleeping? No? Too bad. Because you know when she's awake? at 1 a.m. And I just can't take pictures at 1 a.m. So you get photos of her eyelids. Enjoy!

And finally, in non-conclusiony conclusion, I think we might be gettin' a little school-a-want-y around here already. I mean, just look at the snazzy new calendar we just put up today in anticipation of having our first kindergartner starting kindergarten at La Escuela de Borobia (we don't actually have a name for our school. Can you tell?):
The kids were totally into it, which means they stopped watching Curious George for at least 18 whole minutes! What about you guys? Do you feel like summer's just getting started or are you ready for books and pencils and projects (ohmy)?
