3 Months

This kid is three months old today. THREE months. That's all it takes for 1 season. Three months. He's lived through winter. He was actually born a week after winter started, and now he's a week into spring. Gosh - before I know it - it's going to be winter again... and I'm not going to understand where the year went. And there are SOOO many things that I want to accomplish in this year before my maternity leave is up.

It was sunny out today, so Sean sported his new pair of sunglasses (they were a gift from my friend Elana!) He's just the coolest kid on the block!

And since today is Wednesday, this happy kid was wearing his Wednesday onesie! (Gotta love the Gap! He has every day of the week...! ) (I'm telling you this kid has the COOLEST collection of onesies!)

It is Wednesday today, right??!!!

And this my friends, is a "I don't want to be in my car seat in the middle of Walmart look".... Get me out of here! LOL.

Yeah - I hit up two more Walmarts today with my mother. One store I found some changing table pad covers on liquidation for 5$ a piece and they are really cozy. They're lime green too - which I'm totally loving. The other Walmart I found some shirts for myself - can't wait to lose a few more pounds to look better in them.

Speaking of that... I'm really going to be strict on myself starting April 1st. I know Passover is April 2 & 3 - but I'm going to have to deal - and my mother has already purchased Whole Wheat Matzah (which is kinda gross - but anyhow... anyone like eating cardboard??!)

Today I really had a rotten day. I am not sure if I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, if I got lack of sleep last night (tossing & turning) and Sean waking up early (6 am for a feeding, since he went to be early last night - our fault for putting him to bed really early!) if it's because I'm PMSing, if it's because my neighbors "work guy" parked his truck in our SHARED driveway and blocked me in this morning, (no one is allowed parking in the driveway, not even the OWNERS of the house - it's a DRIVE way not a PARK way! It's an accessway to the garages. If my neighbor chooses NOT TO use his garage - how is that my problem!?) if the guy who stole my parking spot started it and if it's because of my current tenant, who is causing me a headache in a half. All of a sudden - after months of her being happy living above us, she's complaining about every little last detail - and she's damn annoying. She's got no man in her life, and every little thing that goes on - that happens, she's insecure and it's as if I am babysitting this 40+ woman. I am now actually very happy that she is moving out. Rent is due on the 1st of the month, she does give me a check on the first of the month, but it's ALWAYS dated for a later date. This bothers me.

Ugh, more about that later.

If I've pissed anyone off today - I sincerely apologize. I didn't mean to. It was just one of those days. I'm sure you've had one of those days. So please understand. And if I didn't piss you off today - then good!

I have a bunch of mail that I should be receiving - but it hasn't come yet. I don't understand why something that was mailed from Toronto - last week - tomorrow will be a week it's been mailed - hasn't come yet. Since when does mail between Montreal & Toronto take a week? It takes a week for me to send something to Vancouver, BC - that I understand, it's the other side of Canada. But ONE Province over? A 6 hour car ride!? A week to be traveling by mail? Weird.

I had pre-ordered my copy of Cast Off - the Yarn Harlot's new book - which HAS been released, but because I ordered it with something else that would take 1-3 weeks to ship - I'm waiting on that order, which amazon has told me should be shipped next week. I hope that is the case - dying to get the Yarn Harlot's new book!

The only nice thing about my day today - was that I got my Blue Moon Fiber Arts order in the mail...! (Amongst with the bills that came today in the mail!) I will tell you the colors I got - but pictures will follow tomorrow - I PROMISE!

My newest colorways are:

Drumroll please.....

.......... Lucy
.......... .......... Lagoon
.......... .......... .......... Cracked Crayon
.......... .......... .......... .......... Ruby Slippers
.......... .......... .......... .......... .......... Little Bunny Foo Foo
.......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... Stormy Weather

Drooling commences now!

Alright, I'm going to go roll into bed so that I can roll out tomorrow morning on the right side of the bed! Sweet dreams & happy knitting.

Canada post is stupid. Why is it cheaper to mail something to the states than across the same country? Often we'll mail tickets out at work and they'll take 5 days to arrive, WITHIN TORONTO!

Better than Cuba though - when I was there, they warned me that a postcard mailed to Canada would take 5-8 weeks.

Whaledancer said... time I mailed TWO postacards at the same time. One arrived in NS in 3 days..the other arrived after two weeks.
How bizarre yes?
BTW Sean is ex-squeeeeeze-ite. Adorable with a majorly capital A.

Can't wait too see STR pics!!! The mail is weird lately, usually things that take roughly a week too arrive are taking between 2 and 3 weeks too reach me, yet something I mailed to AUSTRALIA arrived before my US one did??? go figure, i'm waiting on packages too that were mailed over a week ago, still not here either

ScrapHappy said...

Tell me more about STR. Do you have to go on the waiting list? I've heard so much about it, I'm tempted (like I need more yarn -- haha).

Sorry you had a rotten days. Some days are just like that, as Alexander would say...


Summer said...

WOW!! I hope you have a better day today. I have plenty of those days, where nothing seems to go right. Hope Thursday is a better day for you. Cute pictures of Sean.

Hope you're having a better day today!

Robin said...

Hope it's going better for you now. I have had a bad couple of days this week too. Why would we be pissed off at you venting? This is your blog after all. And good thing that tenant is moving out. Negative people make me crazy. That was my day yesterday too - ppl plopping themselves on my office chairs and vomiting their problems all over me while I'm trying to get some work done on a tight deadline. (Now don't I sound sympathetic?)

Happy 3 months Sean! What a happy, smiley baby!

Anxious to see pics of the new yarn!

As always, great pics of Sean!
