monday brain dump

  • Whew! To say it's been a busy day would be an understatement. After Wednesday-Friday off last week for spring break, I've got lots of catching up to do {hate I left my desk a mess} as well as a big event to prepare for this week.
  • My morning has consisted of spreadsheets, emails and phone calls. Lots of yawns, too.
  • Our garage sale went really well! If I remember correctly, I took four boxes and three large totes of stuff ... and returned with just the four boxes! Plus I made about $175 ... not too shabby.
  • Cooper enjoyed spending time with his grandparents during the sale :) I took him with me on Wednesday while we did setup, and again on Saturday so his daddy could accomplish some outside work.
  • Little Mister had a BIG accomplishment over the weekend, but I'm going to wait and share it in his four-month {how on earth did that happen?} post on Friday.
  • Yesterday, he also got photos taken with live bunnies. Too cute. Pictures to come soon, but I just don't have time right now. He loved them, of course. If it has fur, Coop likes to touch it --- so far :)
  • I have a work event on Wednesday night and it's hubby's night to work late. Thankfully, we have some great friends who will keep an eye on Coop for a couple hours for us.
  • That still doesn't help the mommy guilt. I work salary, so it's not like I can say that since I'm working two hours late, I can come in two hours late, because I still have to man my office. So I'm missing out on an extra TWO HOURS with my baby. Sad face. But I will be picking him up/dropping him off with friends so we'll get some decent "face time" then.
  • I am LOVING the beautiful, summer-like weather we are having. It's been in the 80s the past few days and it's just great. Tonight, I think we may pull out the stroller and go for a family walk.
  • I am typically the queen of cheap. Back in the day, hubs and I would sweat {or freeze} to save money on utility bills. I mean, a couple years ago, we waited until JUNE to turn on the air. But it was so darn hot last week, I was {this close} to turning on the air. Ugh. Please don't let this summer be unbearable.
  • The change in weather has me realizing how pale and out of shape I am. That needs to change pronto ...
  • Time to get back to the grind ... ugh

  1. I can imagine having to work those extra hours is heart breaking. I'm already dreading next year's tax season and have a pretty good feeling that I'll have to ask my bosses to hire someone to cover me because I don't think I can keep up with the extra hours and miss out on a growing baby boy at home. I hope the evening goes quick for you so you can get home to your little man.

    The weather has been amazing! I just hope that the mild winter and warm start to spring doesn't mean a hotter than usual summer too! The summer heat & humidity doesn't mix will with me. ha.

    I used to tan in the tanning bed every spring for a couple weeks to get a base tan to go into summer, nothing too dark just enough to wear capri's and short sleeves and not look pale. This year, I can't being pregnant but I also would prefer to tan in the regular sun with some low SPF rather than a tanning bed these days..


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love comments :)
