Hey there Monday. Why do you always seem so far away on Thursday night?
We spent most of our weekend ripping the house apart, and then trying (unsuccessfully) to put it back together. The house remains a complete disaster and I still haven’t managed to get rid of this overwhelming feeling of being surrounded by too much stuff despite two trips to Goodwill with a carload of donations and the very-in-the-way massive pile of recycling in our hallway. Being pregnant is funny, right? You take issue with the strangest things. So we spent most of Saturday culling and purging items from our cupboards, closets and our storage room. Last month I had Mike build us a bunch of these and I have to say, it’s made organizing the storage room more fun then I anticipated. My nesting self just looks at the neatly organized rows and squeals a bit (this is what gets me going these days, honestly!) I’m just looking forward to the day when I can feel that relaxed feeling of “I’m done,” but I’m sensing as a new mama-to-be that may never be the case, because there are endless things I want to do around this house to make it just “so.”
On Friday we made homemade pizza (pizza night is always the best night of the week!) and watched Trouble With the Curve (Justin Timberlake is in that movie. Who knew?!) and managed to stay awake it to past 10:30 - an accomplishment these days (That's Cliff above in his "regular" seat when we have dinner in the basement^^^). And then on Saturday after the great purge, I splurged on a new bra at this amazing store (which has turned out in only the past 24 hours to be a complete lifesaver and well worth the money), and then we went to Hintonburger for what is in my opinion, the world’s best burger. This is just to say, I’m liking burgers a little too much these days but I wouldn’t give that title to just any burger. (Also I thought when you were pregnant you craved specific food items like “pickles” “cheese” or “pineapple” - how is it that I crave an entire meal? It’s a hard craving to manage, I’m just saying.
Alright Monday, prove the world wrong and make yourself the best day of the week.
