Tidbits



I've been a little pre-occupied with my new "baby" recently...I submitted this ad a couple days ago to an online publication...I'll post the link when it's live

And busy with my other "baby", Peanut Butter and Pickles. Come see me tomorrow over there, talking about my latest healthy find.

This week is our spring break; Alec is home from school and Marvin is home from work. We usually try to start a home improvement project during this time. This year it's a privacy fence along the back section of our yard, outdoor living space improvements/cleanup, and expanding our garden.

I have some sort of sinus issue; it's either seasonal allergies coming really early or the beginning of a sinus infection. My head feels like someone packed it full of cotton. The worst part is that I'm allergic to Advil which is the type of medicine for this type of pain. Tylenol won't touch it...

Marvin shaved off his facial hair yesterday in the middle of the afternoon without telling me. I was so shocked, I couldn't look at him for the rest of the day. I kept calling him "death chin" because his chin looked so white from being covered up with hair for so long!! He's gonna grow it back right away...

Still in the middle of the to/not to homeschool Alec next year discussion. We're pretty close to making our decision, I have one little issue left that needs talking about. I've also come to the conclusion that I want to be the one that teaches Benji how to read, and that will bring about a whole 'nother discussion because Marvin and I were initially pretty set on sending Benji to Kindergarten this fall.

I"m getting rid of the last of my baby paraphernalia, I said goodbye to my beloved Boppy pillow last week, and my favorite baby bathtub the week before. Now that all the stuff is gone, the next step will be my maternity clothes, and you know what they say- as soon as you do that, you get pregnant!! The boys would be thrilled; we actually talked about it at length yesterday (out of earshot of Marvin, of course!) and they both heartily agreed that a new baby would be great. Hm mmm...

Alec is turning eight at the end of the week. I've been a momma for eight years! Oh my! I still sometimes feel like my high-school self, plunked down in a house with a husband and kids and it makes me gasp!

I'm off to bed now, it's cold in our office and my cotton head isn't feeling any better!
Happy Monday!

That ad looks great! I had to laught about the shaving thing...when Michael does that without telling me I always say I feel like some strange man is in my house! It IS hard to even look at him!
