A Better Day

Today has been a much better day. Thank goodness, I don't think I could have handled another one like yesterday.

Miss L is officially signed up for preschool 3 days a week starting in September. It is from 8:30am-2:30 pm. I can not imagine how she will make it that long, but I know deep down inside that she will be fine.

Next I had a dr. appt. I have lost another pound??? I really thought I had gained like 5. Also curios if any of you other moms who have had several pregnancies thought that each baby sat lower.

Finally we took our laptop by to send off and get it fixed. I miss my red baby so much and can not believe that I put it off for so long. Guess I thought it would magically fix itself. I was also nervous at how much those Geek Squad guys would charge although it is still under manufacture's warranty. It was free, but all those signs show pricing all over the counter had me freaked just talking to them. $50.00 for diagnostics. Umm.. was me standing there telling them my problem going to cost $50.00?

Next up Miss L and I had a lunch date at Taco Bell. It has had its revenge. We also visited a consignment shop that I had never been too. I think it is probably the nicest in town, but the prices reflected that.

It was so easy running those errands with Miss L. I usually dread doing these types of things with kids in tow. But I did not have to worry about her one bit. She never left my side.

It is days like these that make the bad forgettable.

I am looking for this stroller

Graco Mosaic Stroller in Green Tea

Anyone have one they want to sell. I can pay you through paypal for a reasonable price. Email me at LaurenLPopp(at)gmail(dot)com.

Not trying to be ungreatful, but I need a break

I am having one of those "Wow, I am a crappy mom" days. This pregnancy is kicking my butt. I have never been so exhausted before. Although things are starting to get a little better now that I am almost 14 weeks along.

I had all of these wonderful expectations of the fun we would have once I was no longer working. Without the 4pm shadow of having to go to work everyday hanging over my head I could get so much accomplished. Great plans of structured activities have been replaced with the misery of trying to pry myself from my bed each morning just to open a pack of pop tarts. All the organization of my upstairs into a use able space is filled with even more unorganization. The laundry is worse than it has ever been. (Feel sorry for Mr. B) But most of all I just need an escape from the every 5 minute mom shout outs for nothing.

After 2 1/2 months of staying home, I am burnt out. Don't get me wrong, I am happy with not having the stress of a job on top of all the other stresses. But, I just need a few hours of uninterrupted me time that involves quiet. You know some guilt free hours on the couch with no requests to get up and do this or get me this except from my bladder. A few hours of guilt free time alone with no hubby nagging me to come to bed because he is tired or wants to talk. I can guarantee I have used my word quota for the day already answering a 4 year olds questions and interrupting an almost 2 year old. I just need a release, I just need to remember who I am.

Is Spring Here?

It is the first warm day in what seems like years, although it has only been months. I have been spring cleaning all day. I have sorted through the summer clothes box for the girls just doing an inventory, but is it wishful thinking if I just go ahead and get them out. I know it is bound to get cool again, but I am so ready to shed our winter wear for a long time. Hope you are having a warm and beautiful weekend where ever you are.
