1. I just can't seem to shake this funk I've been in since the holidays. I haven't really settled into a good schedule yet, and that is majorly throwing me off.
2. London is the world's biggest busy body. Gone are the days when I could walk away and leave her to her own devices. Because now her own devices consist of getting into anything and everything she isn't supposed to.
3. I've been tackling my 24 things list, and that has pretty much consumed my spare time. Priorities... I'm hoping to do an update on my progress on March 6 (my half-birthday).
4. I am kind of over social media. I'm not saying I'm never going to blog again (actually I'm hopefully going to be much better about it this month...), but I just don't feel the need to share every waking moment of my life. I know that's pretty much heresy for my generation, but if I can't be honest in my own blog, where can I be?? (I'm aware of the irony in posting this on my blog, but there ya go. I'm a box of walking contradictions.)
Now that I'm done with the List of Excuses, onto what you came here for:
This is what I meant in the above paragraph regarding London's mischief-making skills. I stepped away for LITERALLY two minutes, and accidentally left the door to our hall closet open (that's where we stash soda when we happen to have it.) This gave her enough time to push and pull the carton all the way to the end of the hall, and pull out a soda. Please note that she's not actually drinking the soda. She may be strong enough to move that carton, but she doesn't have the hand-eye coordination to open the can. Thank goodness, or I would also have a nice, ORANGE stain all over the carpet. And then it would have been time to call in the clean-up crew, instead of the family photographer (I currently fill both these positions in our household.) If you want to see more of London's handiwork, feel free to drop by our place unexpectedly at anytime before bedtime.
Also, I finally pulled the trigger on an addition to our home that has been in the works for quite sometime. If you've ever come to visit us, you've been met by this unsightly blemish:
This is a box with a piece of fabric draped over it. Because Dan is
Well, Marshall's never ceases to fail me, because I was just there the other day, and low and behold THE EXACT SAME TABLE WAS THERE!! It was dent-free!! And it was within our budget! I needed it, as the box had just about drawn its last breath. So I now proudly present our new entry table (drumroll, please!):
|Doesn't that just make your heart happy?!|
She's a keeper.
And that's life. Hopefully next post won't have to be a super-long, super-random catch-up post.
