Goodness it has been busy around here! Hence, Menu Plan Monday: Wednesday Edition.
This weekend was kind of crazy with little sleep due to a long labor situation, but I got to spend part of my Mother's Day supporting a mother bringing her new baby into the world. If that doesn't celebrate the essence of motherhood I don't know what does!
|My first little Mother's Day gift from Jack. He brought home from school this little potted flower and a card. Adorbs!|
I did get to enjoy my own Mother's Day celebration as well. We went to a lovely brunch with family and Mark and the kids gifted me with a hybrid tablet/laptop (I don't even know if that's the right term because I know nothing about electronics) and some accessories. Really nifty! I have no idea how to use it, but Mark insists it will be great for business purposes. I think he's right I just have to learn how to best utilize it!
|And both kids cooperated for a picture. This has pretty much never happened before. Wonderful treat!|
After brunch it was time for fun (not) things like laundry and while the boys were grocery shopping and Molly was napping I used the quiet time to do a much needed massive closet clean out. I'm an admitted hoarder and despite the fact that a solid 90+% of the items in my closet were merely taking up space it was super hard for me to clean it out. It was all getting too ridiculous, even for me, so I finally buckled down and did what needed to be done. Mark loaded all the bags up and took care of donating them and now my nice spacious closet and I are happy that the task is done!
Jack is finishing up his last few days of his first year of preschool (ahhh!) and Molly has learned how to climb up on furniture much too high for my comfort levels. Yesterday I found her standing on the TV stand like she belonged there. Uhm... no. My life just got more challenging.
