1. If you did a Spring Day in the Life/Week in the Life - you still have plenty of time to get it posted and let me know about it so I can include you in the round-up post. Just email me at email@example.com by Monday night. The blog hop post will be up on Tuesday.
2. Husband shouted about the pictures I posted yesterday, citing unfair angles and hideous moments. He is insistent that I don't portray him as a simple-minded man with much chin on the blog. Anyhoodles, as punishment he is insisting that I share the following picture from several months ago.
[Husband's comment: First of all...(Editor's note - I am already rolling my eyes) there was no shouting: I thought those were private pictures (Ed note: sounds pervy). Second, for ugly pictures permission should be granted and third - it's only right to have to post an ugly to make things right again.]
Okay, done with the business side of things. Onto the day.
Yoga first thing on a rainy day. The earliest class is 8 am on the weekends.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
Biggie does his typical chew-the-bottom-of-the-sippy-cup thang and
Bella does some painting
I get home from yoga and I shower quickly and then Bella ends up taking a quick bath. This is her Chicken towel that she got from Auntie Valerie & Uncle Alex a couple years ago.
Bella and I hit up music class for the second time in a week (future Bella reading this: HUGE parental sacrifice. HUUUUUUUUUGE! Oh, but you love it so...)
Back at home...
After music class, Bella and I go to the grocery store (my fourth grocery store trip of the week? OY. I'm seriously troubled.) Bella is delighted to see her BFF Liz behind the cheese counter. We say hello, Bella gets a huge hunk of cheese and catch up for a few minutes. I am completely over and done with our townhome, but I will miss the community we have built here. Of course, if I hadn't married Chatterbox #1 and given birth to Chatterbox #2, this would never have happened for me. Interesting the path life takes you on.
Home again. Lunch time. Most flattering picture ever.
I attempt to nap, but even my kind of boring Amish memoir can't put me to sleep. So I get up and start fixing dinner while watching a Grey's episode. I always think I can multi-task things like these, but it's no good. Dinner will be chicken & veggie fajitas/fajita salad with avocado pico de gallo.
We wake up Bella from her nap as a whole family. Whew! Not grumpy. I generally put my pj pants back on for a few hours midday, every day.
Lindsey is one of my oldest friends - we go way back to early Fargo days - and she got a brand new puppy so we went to visit and bring a little puppy gift.
Dinnertime back at home. We feed Oliver quickly and then I do his bedtime routine. He takes 15 seconds to fall asleep.
Dinnertime for the three of us.
We have continued to write down our favorite part of each day as part of our dinnertime routine. I'm loving it.
Then after clean-up and bedtime routines and a little time playing catch-up on my blogging, I found myself completely exhausted. The clock said only 8:50 pm but I was too tired. So I dragged myself upstairs and called it a day after reading a few more e-pages of the Amish memoir. Swear that book is like an Ambien. Zzzzz. Yet I'm interested just enough to keep going.
