I Did It!

The Rookie Moms can ALWAYS make you feel good with their simple activities, like this one: Write a Did-Do List.

Here's mine for the day:

Changed 6 diapers, 2 of which were poopy.

Flushed the contents of 2 poopy diapers ('cause, you know, you're supposed to? Sometimes I am lazy, though, I admit it.)

Successfully administered 2 doses of heart medicine, 2 doses of antibiotics, and one dose of acid reflux medicine to Little Man.

Took my calcium supplement.

Managed to get through 3 meals with the Little Man.

Fed myself lunch! Woot!

Took the dog for a walk, and a nice one, at that.

Had a play date with JC and CC.

Took a shower *gasp* AND *GASP* WASHED MY HAIR. Oh happy day.

Met a Mom's Group friend and made it for Gymboree Open Play time.

Got Little Man to crawl through the big tunnel at Gymbo for the first time!! (He rolls army commando style.)

Picked up some dairy free cookies for myself. Woot!

Went to Trader Joe's and picked up some provisions.

Threw together some crackah-style couscous with peas and walnuts to go with our heated up TJ's Just Chicken for dinner.

Wrote this post.

What did YOU do today?

You had a good day :)
What I wouldn't give to have a day like that........here goes:
3:00am up with the T-man. He wins and ends up in my bed. 5:45am we're up! Got ready for work. Did make time to straighten my hair. Sat in traffic. Dropped T-man off at my sisters. Sat in more traffic. Got to work by 8:00. Work sucked. Left early. Picked a cranky T-man up. Got home by 5:15. Heated him up some dinner. Fed him. Fought with him. He doesn't like "No."
Bathed him. That was another fight. Put him to bed at 7:15. Parked my behind on the couch and snuggled with the dog while having a little pitty party for myself because my little guy has turned into a monster and it's now a battle to deal with him. He exhausts me!
Hoping today is better. Although he was already in my bed by 12am this morning. Its got to stop!
Woohoo it's hump day!

Still early in the day. Let's see...

I work from home on wednesdays (keeps me sane), so...

- fed the dog
- got kid ready for school (I actually like this because I only get to do it once a week)
- Went to Starbucks (again, only on wednesdays so I cherish this simple joy)
- started scanning my RSS subscriptions, dog at my side (again, once a week - the dog/blog thing, that is. Rest of the week it's cubicle/blog).

Mary -- I hear ya!

It's supposed to be a positive list of things you DID do, so I tried to make "getting through 3 meals" more positive than what ACTUALLY happened, LOL.

And I left out the crib party from 4-5:30, in which LM ended up in our bed, nursing himself back to sleep, which resulted in ME not being able to sleep or move, lest LM wake up, since he was SNORING loudly due to his piggy stuffed up nose, and the the hubs was snoring lightly off and on...so I lied there listening to my family (dog included, she sleeps on the floor in our bedroom) until nearly 7am.

I also got stuck in traffic with a tired, fussy baby who fell asleep only 10 minutes from home. *sigh*

But when I wrote it all up, positive like, it made me feel really good and think about only the good parts of my day. THE HAIR!! IT'S WASHED! Hahahaha.

Hope you all have a great Wednesday!

Enjoy your day at home, BD! Thanks for stopping by my place!

Well, today was a wash, since I woke up with one of the worst headaches I've ever had--likely not a migraine, since I wasn't really light-sensitive, but temple and behind-the-eyes poundy--so, Tuesday:

Food, webbing.
Packed up all my stuff from 3 weeks of catsitting, finished some laundry.
Spent time with mom and lil' sis.
Admired bf's landscaping.
Did some commenting and clearing of tabs on the blog-reading front.
Showered and washed hair, put on contact lenses.
Did some paperwork.
Helped with dinner, served and ate. Yum.
Finished corralling the ton of stuff, supervised the loading of car.
Fueled car.
Drove 1.5 hours home. Unloaded car, put away food from cooler.
Enjoyed the reunion with the roomies, and the new fence on one side of the yard, courtesy of the neighbor's remodeling project.
Read a hand-written card from a friend, and a few pages of a novel.
Had Deep and Important conversations with the bf about relationships.
Finally went to bed. ;D

I've been both mom and dad for the last 2 days which Scout's been out of town. Today I will also be contractor to painters and whoever will be figuring out why our shower is leaking into our living room.
