Alright already

I love Jaime's comment on my last post, "Just blog already..." That's awesome. It's not like I'm spending a ton of time on Facebook. I'm just not really spending much 'leisure' time on the computer these days. I've got Blue and Gold Banquet coming up for scouts, I'm throwing a baby shower in a few weeks, my mom is staying with me for a few months, I've got these two busy-body rug rats, I've been hard core at the gym every day, our house is on the market, I'm starting a little job next week... Which of those is news to you?

My mom is seeing a new neurologist in Scottsdale to try to deal with the chronic migraines she's been dealing with for 30 years. I'm sorry for the circumstances that brought her here but MAN ALIVE its great having her! She just plays with my kids all day, and does my dishes, and folds my laundry. It's FANTASTIC. Sign me up for polygamy.

Jace is 9 1/2 months and a crawling maniac. He's got four teeth. He stands on his own for up to a minute. His two joys in life are being held by mom and being right in Cohen's business. Whatever Cohen is doing, whatever Cohen is playing with, wherever Cohen is... that's what Jace wants. Cohen is not amused. I was doing my make-up today and heard an unusual scream/cry from Jace in the family room. I ran in to find Cohen sitting on the floor on a couch cushion, watching TV. Jace was under the couch cushion.

I cant answer any questions about why we are selling our house except to say that I'm a loyal wife. Brad is a man with a plan.

My friend Christy does this drop off babysitting two days a week and makes pretty good money doing it. So I'm going to start doing the same thing on two other days of the week. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 to 1:30, people can drop their wee ones off to play at my house while they run errands, grocery shop, clean the house, take a bubble bath and read a book, or go to lunch WITHOUT KIDS! Good for them, good for me. And freedom only costs them $2 an hour!

So there Jaime. I blogged. It's now 45 minutes later than I wanted to be in bed so I hope you're happy! Maybe I'm just in a blog rut. Or have I lost the bug?........

I laughed out loud when I read that Jace was under the cushion. Sounds like our house! It's fun isn't it... brothers?

Jill, much appreciation for the new post. I did not know several of the things that you have going on. Like the Blue and Gold Banquet, house on the market, and job. I love the job idea. Such a great idea! Do I need to talk to Brad about the plan, I am curious. Love ya

Oh I wish I could drop my kids off. Oh wait I do... but I go to work. LAME! I have lost the blog but. Life is too busy yet boring at the same time. I am feeling your pain.

Oh my gosh....the cushion....that is straight up funny and totally brothers! Gosh we need to hear more details on all of this...where are you guys moving to?!?!

Lisa said...

I kindof feel like I am in a blog rut... or maybe just over it. I make myself post things. It is only rarely that I get excited about posting. And I hear ya on the whole polygamy thing. When I had Dena here for a week it was AMAZING! Two women sure does make it easier!

I think most of us have lost the blogging bug. So you can't answer questions about WHY you're moving, but can you at least tell us where you are going?

I think I am still a 'no' for polygamy, but would love my mom to live in my guest house or something (assuming I had one). Glad to hear what y'all are up to. I'm a bad blogger too. But that mom of mine, is good at reminding me... I definitely need more deets on the move. Can't wait to hear!
