Random brain dump:

  1. In follow-up to yesterday’s post regarding the Bachelor, I can honestly say that I am glad that the Bachelor Jason Mesnick seems happy with Molly. I wish them all the luck. He’s still a prick.
  2. I have a giant to-do list for the next 45 days or so. We’re going to Walt Disney World next month (!!!!!) and I have meetings and appointments galore before that. So, I’m trying to get a lot of things done like spring cleaning, getting ready for a children’s consignment sale, hosting my card club, stuff like that.
  3. I met with the sweetest young woman this morning. Moo and I have been longing for adult interaction. For the most part since Phoebe was born, we’ve kinda done what we wanted to do when we wanted to do it. My chiropractor told us when Phoebe was less than a week old to remember that little babies are highly portable and will sleep anywhere… and this is true. You can easily throw your newborn into the carrier at 2AM and go to Waffle House and they will mostly sleep through it. However, when your pre-toddler hits the hay, you don’t want to move, you don’t want the phone to ring, you want to make sure that kid sleeps when she needs sleep or there will be HELL TO PAY with much talking and playing and cajoling. So Moo and I decided we needed a babysitter 2-3 times a month so that we could go out as a couple. I talked to folks around about who they used and I got a lot of “well we don’t go out that much” or “we use my/his parents”. No one could recommend a sitter. So I went through this website and posted my job. I got 72 applicants. After going through background checks and reviewing references, I narrowed it down to one who I think may be perfect for us.
  4. Went to my local Mom’s Club meeting yesterday. If you’re a stay at home mom, see if you have a chapter of this near you. The ladies in this group are fantastic.
  5. I’m heading off tonight to a Stampin Up party. This is a catalog party. I will spend money. And it will be GOOOOOOOOOD.

Hope everyone’s having a great day!!
