That train thing is just awful. How could that happen??

But apparently leaving right away made an impression on him. When we got home he agreed to eat his dinner and even had 2 chicken nuggets!! HUGE because usually he refuses to eat chicken period. And then he calmly asked for more food when he finished his. Afterwards we sat down on the couch together and watched Brave. So as bad as CFA was, he made up for it. Right now he's watching Sesame Street because I'm afraid to put him down for the night.
Oh no for the disaster, but yay for the lesson learned!

I have clothes, diapers, and boobs. What more do I really need? But I feel like I ought to be doing....something....
I feel like this would be me with a 2nd, even. If I had diapers and a ring sling, I'd feel pretty much good to go.

I went to a home improvement store today with the intention of buying paint and some curtain rods and drapes for the new place but ended up leaving with nothing more than a few paint chips. First I got all indecisive about the paint colors (it's a dark purple in the hallway and bedrooms now, so not staying!) and so I went to buy the curtains, but I can not make myself spend $60 on a curtain rod or $30 for one curtain panel. Lyla's new room alone has 4 windows! The living room has one very wide window, 2 in the dining/den area etc. I have some mismatched short, cheap ones from here that I can take with us, but I would like to actually decorate our new home.
You can find nice curtains and curtain rods for cheap at Ross, you just have to kind of hunt to find matching ones since it's a big, random assortment. I got some roman shades for our living room for $10 apiece when the Linens & Things here closed--since you have some time, just keep an eye out! Making curtains can be a PITA but I bought some cheap at Ross that were too big and just hemmed them--that took about five minutes. Have fun decorating!!

I'm assuming the new owners will likely clean everything anyway so I was planning on just a superficial cleaning, but is that rude. Should I be scrubbing the tub to a sparkle and dusting all high shelves and such?
I'd clean it, but I wouldn't kill myself. I'd dust, vacuum, mop, wipe down the kitchen and bathroom, and call it good. Totally agree with the others that even if a place looked clean when I moved in, I would still be giving it a clean myself to "get rid of the previous owners" and make it my own anyway.
I am so mad at DH this morning that I feel sick to my stomach. Long story short, it's the mommy default rearing its ugly head. Again.
Light cleaning for sure. I wouldn't go crazy cleaning it up.
Have fun Jackie!
I'm bored to death at work today. No patients and I still have 6hrs left to work.
Leigh, I hope your day gets better. (hugs)
I feel your pain Molly. I don't want to be at work today either. The fact that I am on here while at work shows just how much I don't want to be here cause I NEVER come on here at work, lol! In my case though, I do actually have a ton of work to get done-I'm just having a hard time buckling down today what with the weekend being sooo close, lol!
Leigh, I guess it's time to have That Talk again. I hate when things settle into mommy default.
My sale is working! I sold the pink ring sling, and to my favorite, repeat customer! I hope she will be very happy with it. I think her new baby girl will look super cute in it, just as soon as she decides to be born!
I seriously need to clean this trashed house before DH gets home tonight. For some reason my kids are being needy, clingy and fussy. Lets hope for a long, synchronized napping session today!
Glad the sale is working Anna! I hope both of your kids take that long nap at the same time so you can get a break and get stuff done!
Ugh, I am getting a headache. I know it is because I woke up to pee at 4am last night and then couldn't fall back asleep until 5:30am-my alarm goes off at 6:30 so it was a short night. Not a fan of those middle of the night pregnancy induced potty trips.
Ugh! I'm so emotional right now! Stupid pg hormones! I just read some sappy marriage thingy someone posted on FB and I'm crying like a baby here. But it does make me realize how snippy I can be at DH sometimes and he does so much for me! Especially when this pg.
