Baby Steps

Last night.... I vacumned. Aren't you proud of me? I stood in our living room, grabbed my hair and finally screamed, "I've had it!" Only, I didn't scream... I more muttered to myself. I put Shepherd's toys away and vacumned. And it felt wonderful. And while I was vacumning, Forrest did the dishes in the kitchen. My living room was spotless this morning. It felt so wonderful to walk out into a clean living room.

My goal this weekend is to tackle the laundry. I'm sure some of you are thinking that it can't be that bad. Let me explain. Last night, I had to do one load of laundry simply because Forrest had nothing to wear. I mean nothing. At least nothing clean. Which, you know, if I don't wear clean shirts, no one knows... wait, was that to much information? I swear I don't run around every day in dirty clothes... just... you know... sometimes....when the laundry is backed up... you know... because I have a kid and I've been sick.... that's normal... right? Anyways... so I did a load of laundry (actually, Forrest transfered them from washer to dryer because I was in bed exhausted). That said, I have GOT to do laundry this weekend. Which beckons the question. How bad has the laundry situation gotten at your house? I'm contemplating taking the laundry to a laundermat so I can wash everything at one time and dry everything at one time. That's how bad it is.

Anyways... I haven't posted a picture of the lil' man quite a while, here's one post-traumatic haircut (I still haven't blogged about it because I'm just not there emotionally... let's just say it involved a lady who barely spoke english, some scissors, and massive amounts of sobbing and tears by me) and then one of my two men in the snow a few weeks ago.


Mommy promises that in a few weeks the kids at playgroup will stop calling me Lloyd


Aren't they adorable? And isn't my husband HOTT!?

Ummm, I'm not pregnant or sick & my laundry is backed up, big time. To the point where Bill started doing his own laundry (maybe that was my master plan!!!)

It is mean of me to have laughed at your "Lloyd" comment? You're funny.

Great pictures. THanks for sharing.

Congrats on vacuuming. That's a major accomplishment with a toddler around. As for the laundry, my husband had to wear dirty underwear a couple of weeks ago. Currently, there is clean laundry on every bed in the house. Folding will happen one day! (Or else, we'll just pick stuff out of the piles!)You're not alone!

My laundry is perpetually backed up. Really. All the time. I'm NEVER caught up.

Hubba hubba! You got some hot boys in your life that's for sure!

Doing laundry is the easy part for me. Folding it and putting it away is that part that gets backed up around our house. I HATE folding a putting away laundry. It's so finicky and takes so bloody long. Currently there are 2 baskets sitting in our living room waiting for my husband to put them away tomorrow he he he he he...

lloyd. bwah!
at least you have to cut your child's hair...mine is almost 18 months and has no hair to speak of..

You have just scared me off from getting Evan's hair cut. ever. Jonathan says we need a Flowbee...doesn't that seem too strong for a baby?

Corrine, those pictures are so cute. I'm sorry that you and Shep are have a little post-traumatic stress after the haircut. But as my best friend in high school always said (it helps if you say it in her Louisiana accent), "The difference between a bad haircut and a good one, is two weeks." Truer words are hard to come by.
