Mack napped late today after I got back in from the nutritionist office (down 22.2 lbs!) and I didn't get to go to Ariadne's mom & baby knit thing, which I really wanted to go to. Mack was super cranky. He's been doing the tooth cutting thing lately.
So, I stayed in and took care of some work, and did a lot laundry all day. A lot of laundry. It never freakin' ends. There never is an end in sight. 2 adults, 2 kids. 2 very messy kids. I guess th next time the laundry will be weekly (or every other week) again, will be after the 2 boys move out.
Ohh! I forgot to show you yesterday, I got my new glasses yesterday! Those lovely purple ones I showed you a few Saturdays ago when I went with Jamie to pick up his new glasses. I heart them!
The suburb I live in today said "Let there be light"...! Ugh. This lampost sits on my front property and shines BRIGHT ORANGE into my bedroom. My father-in-law accidently backed into it the day of Sean's 2nd Birthday Party back in December 2008. It was finally fixed today, and it will no longer be pitch black in our bedroom, no matter how tight we close the blinds. (Maybe it's time for new blinds?)
I also put together the final touches on my gift baskets. I made one for my parents, one for Jamie's cousin & one for Jamie's Step-Aunt & Step-Uncle. Went with an apple theme for the Jewish Seders and Bunnies/Chicks for the Easter basket. We went to my parents house tonight for Passover, tomorrow we're going to Jamie's cousin's house for Passover and Saturday to Jamie's step-Aunt & Step-Uncle's for Easter. (Busy week!)
So as I mentioned before, we went to my parents house for passover tonight. My basket was a huge success with my parents. I'm glad they liked it. We were almost 30 people tonight, and I don't know what we'll do next year when more kids need seats at the table (rather than a high chair in the corner). Sean was very well behaved, as my sister's boyfriend played with him in the basement while the actual seder was going on. I got to use the excuse that I was feeding Mackenzie while the seder was going on, so that I didn't have to read from the seder book this year. (I am a bit shy reading infront of others. Reading kids books to Sean is one thing, but out loud in front of almost 30 people.... bah! I can do without.) Mack was also very well behaved at the dinner table tonight.
After dinner I figured out the Log Cabin Blanket with Jenn & Amy for our cousin Caryn's bridal shower which is on May 2nd. We needed to figure out how many squares each, and which color combinations each of us would do. I think it's going to be super nice. I really hope Caryn likes it.
- Knit and Purl Mama
- I am a 30-something mom who knits, and takes pictures, a lot. I am a mother to 3 adorable boys, Sean (Dec 2006), Mackenzie (June 2008) & Quentin (Nov 2010). This is my journey through motherhood, photography, the books I read, life in general and knitting, of course. Oh, and other crafts too!
