It’s Monday! Again! Have I mentioned recently how much I love Mondays? (Seriously, no sarcasm there.) It’s a fresh start to the week, I’m usually more productive than on other days, and today happens to be GORGEOUS! Eighty-nine degrees by 4:00pm! I let my kids fill up the pool, put their bathing suits on, and get soaked.
(We’ve been going barefoot for weeks, so that’s nothing new.)
To anyone that missed me, would you believe that bunnies nibbled on my computer cord and fried my computer? No? Truth is, I just haven’t had internet connection for five days. There’s a downside to bumming a Comcast connection off of my next-door in-laws! Rain, hail, snow, wind, excessive heat (okay, made that one up)… it all bumps me off-line.
My family was here again! Traveling back through on their way home from Florida. All of them are ridiculously tan! My youngest brother and sister were left here (on purpose), and my family will drive back down at Easter to spend the weekend with us and bring Anna and Andrew back home.
I’ve been spoiled this year, seeing my family so much! I’ve been able to spend way more time with them, in only three months, than most people who live eight hours away from each other. And, of course, spoiled with a sister that helps with my kids, dishes, laundry, and cooking. I know it’s not real life, but I’m sure enjoying it!
My mom took me shopping at Motherhood while she was here, and bought me two maternity shirts and a maternity swimsuit. I don’t care how many maternity clothes a girl has, new ones are always nice! And my mom spoils me there. =)
I spoiled myself and bought an $80 pair of jeans at Banana Republic. The jeans are AWESOME! (And I only spent $20 on them, so it’s not as bad as it sounds.) I will never again scoff at people who spend extra money on nice jeans. They just feel so good! I was having issues with my hips NOT fitting into jeans I already own. I think after five pregnancies and four births, my hips might be stuck in the next size up for good. Or maybe my clothes shrank, or it’s just because I’m pregnant… I can hope, right?
Oh, and in case it crossed anyone’s mind that it’s a little weird for a pregnant lady to be shopping at Banana Republic, I was just there for the pants. I refuse to buy maternity pants! I hate the way they look and feel. So I just wear low-rise stuff all the way through my pregnancies. There’s always a first time though, ’cause like I said, my body seems to be acting differently this time. Like, maybe its age?!
Okay, so I just wrote a whole post about clothes and my pampered life. Umm…
I’m going to go pull some weeds or fold laundry. Just so you know I’m not a princess. Or, if I am, I’m the kind that throws fits like the princess who threw the frog against the wall.
