Standing and Not Standing

Let's start with the "not" standing.

I can't stand:
  • working more than my anticipated schedule. (I am scheduled to work 3 days/week. This week, I am working 5. That is too much. Mostly because I just can't keep up with the household things. Essentials, like dinner, are done. Laundry, apparently not so essential... yet!
  • being unable to sleep at night - sometimes due to a cute little thing, sometimes due to stressful work happenings
  • not having 10 minutes to myself in a week. Well, aside from sleep, that is!

Now, on to the STANDING:
  • Our adorable little stander, is indeed standing. She pulls up on ANYTHING and EVERYTHING and EVERY WAKING MOMENT of EVERY DAY!

Getting to a State of Normal

I am not sure what it is, but I feel like things haven't been "normal" for quite some time. We have been in a state of transition for a long time now, and finally, I think we are done. Little Lady is getting old enough to haul around for long periods of time with minimal effort. Squeaker is less emotionally labile, which makes doing anything easier. Little Man is getting more and more independent. (Sometimes this is not easier.) Anyhow, I feel glad to be able to settle in and do "normal" things. For Daddy's birthday, we sent him off to a golf lesson and driving range. Then we met up with him for a nice hike in a local wildernessy area. The weather was gorgeous, and were it not for the whining, it would have been IDEAL. ;) It was nice to get out on a random weekday and spend time together. It wasn't stressful or rushed, or anything. We didn't have time constraints. It was lovely.

Lazy Monday

It's cartoons in bed with visitors from out of town. What could be better?

Minus a lens and completely snapped off! I guess he can't wear glasses in the car any more. Ugh
