*sigh* My apologies for slacking in the blogging department. My only excuse is that I have been extremely lazy. And I got swept up in a ridiculous series on faeries. ๐Ÿ˜€ I quite enjoyed blazing through four books of ridiculousness.
So, let’s see. Some quick updates for the past week:

1) Zipped through the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. The first book was rather meh, but the story was good enough for me to read the next three. Although what is it with centuries old “teenaged” boys who fall in love with REAL teenage girls? If I was an old dude, I would rather be shot than be wedded to a teenage girl. Such drama queens.

2) Had house cleaners come for the first time in three years (since we moved into this house). OMG – this is awesome. There is nothing I hate more than cleaning bathrooms and showers and kitchens. Yes, things are all in weird places now, but everything is nice and CLEAN! I feel like a privileged 1%-er, but I’ll take it.

3) I bought a bunch of “new-to-us” bridges and risers for DS’s trains and he loves them. I thought we couldn’t tear him away from trains before. He stayed up late several nights in a row to play the trains with his Papa (DH). This kid is so spoiled.

4) DD is a pro at walking now. I often think she’s closer to 1.5 years than the almost 11 months she is. Mostly because she is tackling stuff that DS couldn’t do until he was about 1.5 years. I guess girls do develop faster than boys! LOL. She is just super at driving her little red Cozy Coupe backwards. She LOVES that thing.

5) I have replenished my chocolate supply. It was dwindling.

6) I drove about an hour round trip the other day just to get DS a train muffin pan. It makes muffins in the shape of trains! He was very excited. He even ate banana bread – which he never likes. Clearly, I need to make vegetable trains.

7) Finally got a couple of things from Lowe’s today. I’ve seriously been meaning to get a metal hose nozzle and a stand for it for the last year. FINALLY. I also got replacement bulbs (they were a weird specific kind) for our guest bathroom (also waiting at least six months) and some refillable spray bottles for cleaning solutions (also at least a year). You can tell I’m the procrastinating type.

8) Did I mention that the housecleaners took out our garbage for me? AWESOME.

9) I am searching for a tall boy dresser for our room. I’ve decided that until the kids can dress themselves, we’re gonna have a family closet. Because seriously? I’m not putting laundry away in three separate rooms. They have all their baths in my room anyway. Truthfully, we ALREADY have a family closet. But we’re running out of space because DS’s clothes are getting bigger. Plus, we’re nearing fall/winter and we’ll need warmer clothes and socks and those take up more room as well. Craigslist trolling, here I come.

10) I broke down and bought two bags of Pirate’s Booty yesterday. We are now down to ONE bag.

That’s it. I will update tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜€
