I have been a little stressed out lately. 

Just a little.

Our house is up for sale, which means I have to keep it clean and show ready constantly, in case someone wants to come see it. I'm a "pre-emptive strike" kind of girl, I don't like the thought of having to clean everything top to bottom in a few hours before a stranger comes to see my house, I'd rather keep everything in a state of perfection so I can chilax. 

The problem is, I have a one year old (almost 13 month old) who loves to mess up EVERYTHING as I'm cleaning. Also, I'm fighting fatigue because I've been back to work for a couple weeks, and I'm taking antihistamines because my hand broke out in a rash that was probably caused by the very, very harsh soap at work, that my skin just isn't used to anymore. Antihistamines make me sleepy.

So, if you've been wondering where I've been and what I've been up to lately, I must say I haven't been anywhere except work and home, and I haven't done anything but cook and clean. 

Yesterday I did manage to get outside for a couple hours, just to play with Ducky, soak up some rays, and relax while Ty put some more boards up on the back room. (The back room that is ALMOST DONE, by the way! So excited to get that finished up.)

I am not kidding at all when I say my son has the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen.

So, being back to work is fun! I do love my job, but I'm really glad I'm only working part time. Three days a week isn't too terrible, it gets me out of the house and gives us some extra moolah in the bank, but I'm still home the majority of the time with my son. He's adjusted really well to the change in our schedule, he gets to spend time with Grandma, Granny, and Aunt Heather and her kids, and every other Friday he gets to spend the whole day with his Daddy. 

 I work Mondays, Thursdays & Fridays, so I get Tuesday & Wednesday off and Saturday & Sunday off every week. 

I like having two days in a row off, it lets me get caught up on housework and laundry, and I don't feel like I'm gone all the time. I originally wanted to work Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I'm glad I work Fridays instead of Tuesdays, because that means we only need a babysitter three days every other week, since Tyler has every second Friday off.

Yesterday I cleaned, so today I have more free time so I can sit and fiddle around with my blog. I still need to go grocery shopping later today, but I might wait until Ty gets home, and then go as a family and maybe get Supper at a restaurant so I don't have to do dishes. But we'll see. ;)
     As a side-note to that, did you realize that Boston Pizza now has Gluten-free pizza on their menu?? No? Well, they DO. :D

Happy Birthday to Elena, my little sister who is not so little anymore! She's 16 today. :) 
Love you lots!


  1. Yay for a fresh, new blog look!

    YAY for a new post! I was just about to complain that I haven't had my Ducky fix in ages. :P

    But is BP pizza corn/potato/etc free? Sigh.

    And, the Duckster definitely has some beautiful eyes. Right up there, IMO, with Hannah. ;)

  2. I'm glad you like it! I needed a change. The old look was all stagnant and boring to me, I figured if I changed it up it would kick-start me back into blogging mode! :) I didn't blog the entire week you guys were camping, and then I was all like "meh" when I sat down at the computer. ;)

    I don't know if BP pizza is corn/potato free... my guess would be that it definitely has soy in it, because the dough is really soft and nice. I don't know anything else about it.... sorry. :(

    Oh yes, Hannah has the most beautiful GIRL eyes I've ever seen. D-man has the most beautiful BOY eyes. :D

  3. Very pretty blog!! I haven't been too inspired either these days, maybe fall will bring some change.

    Beautiful eyes run in the family, yes they do. :)
