Wow. This week has been a doozy. Neither Lawson or Sybil are sleeping well. They put an entire roll of toilet paper in the toilet and tried to flush it. Twice. Lawson broke the glass jar that held our Q-tips. It felt like the last pre-kid thing we owned. I found the dishwasher rack in our bedroom. Lawson emptied their entire dresser into his crib. Twice. Sybil woke up at 4:45 on Wednesday morning. I’m sure I’m missing something, but you get the point.
The only thing that saved me this week was going for a run on Wednesday morning. Fingers crossed it’s the start of a somewhat consistent routine.
Today marks the end of my 30 days without sweets! I’m surprised how many times I reached for a piece of chocolate after lunch or dinner. It’s a good reminder that all those little treats add up.
And in the most exciting news, Jim and I are heading to Santa Barbara on Sunday for a two night vacation. Yes, you read that right…a real vacation…without kids. Our mothers are coming to take care of Lawson and Sybil. I’m looking forward to sitting in the passenger seat instead of squeezed between two carseats, enjoying a meal in an actual restaurant, wandering aimlessly in and out of shops and SLEEP. I will miss my little peanuts though.
Jim and I watched a movie, The Big Sick, on Sunday night. There were a million other things I could (maybe should) have been doing, but watching a movie together won out. I can’t remember the last time we watched a movie!
See above. No need to relive them!
FIND OF THE WEEK:
If you’re looking for a long sweater, I came across this halogen cardigan while browsing this week. It comes in petite and regular sizes and a ton of colors. I may be most excited about this jacket and this one for little girls. Both are from Target and very reasonably priced!
