Oh man, has this been a week. And it’s still far from over. Mostly good things, just busy.
With what, you ask?
Well, I’ve been helping my brother and sister-in-law out by watching their kids. Once, overnight. It reminded me of Boo’s baby days.
For those of you without kids, let me explain it to you. Less than eight hours of sleep makes you tired.
Plus, the hubby and I went into DIY overdrive, since we have our family and friends coming over this week to celebrate Boo’s bday. I successfully completed this project (blog post to come) and Sean ran around the house with a screwdriver and sand paper doing guy fix-it stuff.
I woke up Tuesday morning and realized I had a filthy house, plans to make three birthday cakes (another blog post teaser), and still hadn’t bought my daughter a single present. Woot.
A lot has been accomplished in 48 hours, but I still have plenty to do. I thought about skipping this post, but I’ve been attached (addicted?) to writing my five things every week. It’s official, I’m a blogger.
Bought these in honor of my daughter’s birthday. Not everyone likes them, and I have no idea why. They are AWESOME.
Her first bike. My choices were Barbie and Princess. Now, I like girly, but geez. Scale it back a bit, toy makers. Of course, she’ll love it, and that’s all that matters.
Automatic bubble makers are a parents’ best friend. You can see my bookshelves in action here. And no, I don’t know why her night light is on during the day.
Remember that handiwork I mentioned my husband was buried in this week? One of those projects was to paint the doors and replace the hardware. Lovin the darker doorknobs. A word of warning–adding a layer (or several) of paint can render doors unable to close. That’s a particular sticking point (ha) when it’s a bathroom door.
After all his hard work, I know my guy deserved an awesome birthday/Father’s Day gift. Yes, it’s Sean’s birthday too this week.
He’s a HUGE fan of Parks & Recreation, esp Ron Swanson. Mostly because he practically IS Ron Swanson.
I found out that Nick Offerman, the actor who plays him, runs a woodshop, just like his character on the show.
Another fact– Sean likes to cook, and is always complaining that he doesn’t have a nice, wooden cutting board. I use a bunch of thin, plastic ones.
His birthday present–
A cutting board made by “Ron Swanson”. Or one of his minions. I loved the note.
Phew! Long-winded much??
How was your week?
