Ramblings of a slightly crazy Mama

I forgot to post my wordless Wednesday today! Is it really Wednesday already? Oops.

How do you all feel about Wordless Thursday? :-)

I took both kids to run errands today. We went to four places and it went really well. If I feed Anthony before we leave the house he can usually last a few hours pretty well. Our adventures today took us to Linens N things, (I only spent $5 there! It's a miracle. Seriously.) Then we went and got Amelia's hair cut here. We have gone there before and it was great but this time it was horrible. The lady said maybe 5 words to us the whole time. She kept spraying Amelia in the face with the water and she was getting irritated that she wouldn't sit with her head down for long periods of time. Um yeah, she is 3. So then I pay and the lady just goes in the back. No balloon or anything. So then Amelia is freaking out because she thinks we go there just for the balloons. Amelia is having such a cow that I didn't even get a good look at her hair cut.

Our next stop was to get some lunch, then we went to the grocery store for a few things we needed for dinner tomorrow and for playgroup Friday.

After I got home I got a chance to look at her hair, and it's sooooo not even. Her bangs are all over the place. I don't know what the ladies problem was but it looks bad! I could understand if the kid was wiggling all over or something, but she wasn't she held really still when she was cutting the bangs. Ugh. Now I'm not sure if I should go back, or if I should go pay $20 somewhere else. Grrrr.

In other news Jeff is going to urgent care again tonight. He is no better than he was last week, so he's been sick for at least 3 weeks now. Maybe this time they'll figure out what's wrong with him, or at least give him some more cough medicine.

So anyone who's known me for a long time, knows organization is not my strong suit. At least when it comes to my house. Now my house is not dirty (except maybe my kitchen floor. LOL) but it tends to get cluttery. Part of that I'm sure is there are 4 of us in a 2 bedroom house. Where was I going with this again? oh yeah, I suck at keeping up with my house. But, since Anthony has arrived, and I'm not pregnant anymore, I really feel like I'm doing better with that. I'm keeping up with all the general stuff, laundry, the cleaning, cooking meals etc, and I'm slowly working on other projects. Right now I'm in the kitchen. Monday, I reorganized the pantry. Today I started on decluttering and reorganizing the cabinets. It feels good to organize stuff! Now if I can just figure out how to get Jeff on the same page as me about letting go of stuff. He gets so offended if I get rid of something or even suggest getting rid of something of his. And occasionally it happens that I get rid of something that later turns out to be useful. He has to spend so much energy giving me krap about it. It's getting really old. There is so much stuff in this house that we could let go of, but it's a battle to get rid of anything. I'm sick of fighting about it. But I'm also sick of being the only one trying to keep all the clutter in some form of order. Not sure where I'm going with all of this, just venting. Then I'll feel better and be able to let it go for a while. ( Oh and Jeff, since you do read this, i don't want to hear about the 1 thing you DID get rid of 5 years ago, or get a lecture about how sometimes stuff turns out to be useful and you're so glad you hung on to everything so you would have that one useful thing. Okay? Okay. I'm just venting. :-) )

Now if I could just figure out how to do all this stuff without spending 8 hours a day working on the house! Someday my babies will be grown and I'll miss all of this day to day stuff. Right now, it's a little hard to keep up with it all, without going insane. :-)

Rainbow Kids is totally over rated. Don't get me wrong I go there too but the ladies leave something to be desired. I mean, come on, YOU decided to work there. If you don't want to be around kids all day or don't have that special something, go work at Supercuts!
