Just your typical tuesday night randomness

I have so much I want to write about lately but such little time to do it in. So bullet points will have to do for now.

  • I may have mentioned how forgetful I am lately before. But it gets worse every single day.  I have recently: went to the bank to deposit checks, without the checks. Left my lunch on the counter for the 29118 time. Put the dinner leftovers in a container and left said container on the counter instead of in the refrigerator. Misplaced a roll of stamps.  left the oven on when I left the house (I remember when I got to the car).
  • I am SURE Mike could think of more things I have forgotten, but that’s all I can remember right now.
  • Gianna had a sleep over last weekend with her 2 BFF’s in the whole wide world. It was adorable chaos AND I got 3 three-year-olds to bed by 10:30pm. In the same bed.  Of course they were all up by about 5:30am, but whatever. They all had fun.  Pictures to come. Someday.
  • I want to talk about my Bradley classes and how much it is helping us grow and learn as a couple. I need to make a point of it, actually.
  • The to-do list is sort of, a little tiny bit, shrinking. We at least got 2 major things accomplished with about fourtybillion minor things left to go.
  • What do you do with ALLOFTHETHINGS your kid brings home from Preschool? I’m not a keeper. I can’t remember to use the artchive app I downloaded, but I don’t want to toss everything.  There are a ton of cute ideas on pinterest to display your kids artwork – has anyone successfully, and easily, executed any of these?!  What do YOU do with all of your kids crafty things?
  • It’s thanksgiving week, and I don’t actually  know how that happened. As in, how in the heck is November almost over? Wasn’t it just May?
  • Speaking of ALLOFTHETHINGS we need to do a serious purge of toys to a) make room for whatever crazy stuff G gets for Christmas and b) make room for some baby stuff. But she really does play with everything that she has out right now, which is making it hard.  We just have such a small space for everything to fit in to.
  • I haven’t really started any shopping yet for Christmas but this week have scored some awesome deals at Victoria Secret and on a new otterbox phone cover on Amazon.  I am so thankful for sites like Raining Hot Coupons who find out about and post about these awesome deals, it comes in really handy!
  • Also handy, Amazon Prime free trial!
  • There are some things going down at my work, that will be really good for me in the end – but right now makes me stress a little bit.  Mostly because I want the good things to start now, but I know and understand why they can’t start until after I come back from my maternity leave.  There is also a work from home (and/or work from a closer office)possibility. Which I am trying not to get my hopes up about, but still, would totally rock my world.
  • I will be 30 weeks pregnant tomorrow. THIRTY. Unreal.
  • Also Unreal: the state of the foot swelling.  It has been really bad this past week. But my wedding rings still fit, so I consider it a win.
  • And on that note, I am going to bed.  Because I am tired and I forget what else I wanted to say tonight.

Omg!!! 30 weeks!!! So exciting!

I am on my way to Cleveland but of course every second of our trip is planned... someday we'll meet up though!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I (cringe) throw their artwork away. Unless it's either a)made specifically for a holiday, those are a little more thoughtful on the part of the teachers or b) really impressively cute. I do this because when I moved into my first apartment, my mom brought me a tote of all of my preschool and kindergarten artwork (seriously, 20 year old finger paint, NOM!). And I proceeded to throw it all away. I want to save a few really cute things, but have zero guilt about tossing the rest. :) (The ones I keep just go into their totes for now.)
