It’s Tuesay. Let’s Random. It. Up.
We’re supposed to get up to 7 inches of snow here between today and tomorrow. Apparently it’s the end of the world. I must have missed the memo. Because as far as I’m concerned…I’m still going to have to go to work tomorrow. So it really doesn’t matter.
Because I was not feeling so hot last week I skipped my last two sessions at the gym on Wednesday and Friday last week. I did go on Monday morning and I am exhausted. My legs felt like jelly much of Monday. I didn’t realize how hard I was working.
I am trying 4 new recipes in the next 2 weeks of our cooking cycle. I’m pretty impressed with that number. I really felt like I was in a rut with what I’d been cooking so I looked online and found some new ones that sounded pretty good. If I have any winners I’ll post them on here. I am also trying to fry chicken. We’ll see how that turns out.
I am going to try to enlist the services of a neighbor girl to babysit Leo the weekend of Valentine’s Day. I’m pretty nervous about that. Only 1 time has Leo been baby-sat by a non-family member outside of daycare. And it was the neighbor girl. And I freaked the whole time we were gone. Hopefully she’ll be available and hopefully I won’t be a creep and just deal with the date night like a normal adult. Also…since we usually get free services what is the going rate for a babysitter on a big weekend?
Sometimes there are things that I want to put on my blog but either because I’m not sure I’m ready to talk about them or because I don’t know that people would really care I don’t. But I think it might be cathartic. Sometimes I wish that no one I knew in real life read my blog so that way I didn’t feel like I couldn’t write those things. Oh well!
Leo and I were watching TV yesterday and he saw a commercial with babies in it. He looked at the TV then looked at me and told me that if we had another baby then he would be the best big brother. Then he said, and then another baby and another baby he would be the biggest brother. How many kids does this kid think I’m having. I’m one and done baby. One and done. Ok, maybe one more and done but still. Not any more than that!
I have not had much patience for my little one lately and I don’t know if it’s because he’s been so rambunctious and so he’s getting on my nerves or all the back talk/attitude that has been aimed at me but we are butting heads like crazy. He kept telling me yesterday that his dad was his best buddy and that I wasn’t. But then if I said something like, oh no…daddy’s your best buddy he would get all sad and ask if I still loved him and if I was his mom still. It about broke my heart. He goes through highs and lows like it’s nobody’s business. His dad said, he get it from his momma.
I filed our taxes yesterday and we’re getting a return. So I’m pretty excited about that. I’m using that money to pay down some bills and then use some for savings and a little for Leo’s birthday party. Look at me being all responsible about it. We’ve been so good lately. It’s making me very, very happy to know we are even closer to our financial goals! Woo hoo!
Ok. That’s enough random seepage from my brain. To see more rAnDoM check out Keely. She is the queen of random!
