It's been a crazy week!
Actually it's been a couple of crazy weeks. We have been nonstop with family visiting, sicknesses, birthdays, random activities, a zoo trip....and I don't even know what else because I'm trying to block it all from my memory....but I'm ready for some down time.
I have a lot on my mind, and have had trouble sleeping lately so might as well catch up on the blog postings since the house is quiet!
Every now and then I get in the mood to be productive. It's like a combination of a sudden surge of energy and an intense need to clean takes over...and I end up starting something that I don't necessarily have the capacity to finish. Sometimes Mark will come home and find me doing some project and he knows immediately to run away or I'll enlist his help.
This week he didn't get the chance to run away. We tackled our garage, and I'm so glad we did!
I cleaned out the highchair so Stella can start using it. Now that she's 6 months old I thought I should probably start trying to feed her some baby food...
Initially Lucy was really excited about helping out with the garage. I guess she gets that from me. But then after about 30 minutes she decided she had better things to do. I guess she gets that from me too. She headed over to the neighbor's house and picked some flowers (with our sweet neighbor's permission). Our neighbor has a serious green thumb, and always has beautiful flowers. No matter that they are surrounded by garden gnomes and various other redneck yard decorations. She let Lucy take some to make a bouquet, that is now gracing our kitchen table.
Finished garage! Ahh.....isn't that better? I feel like I should clean something else now...
