I got nuthin

So I realized I haven't blogged since Tuesday. Lately, that's a pretty long stretch with no posts for me. What have I been doing? Uh. Well.

I wish I could say that I've cleaned my house and put all my junk away.

I wish I could say that I've completed all preparations for the kids' birthday party next weekend.

Nope. Didn't happen.

I did go to IKEA in Minneapolis with my mom and all three kids. It went better than I expected and I didn't even have the urge to sell one of the kids while we were there.

I also went clothes shopping with my mom and bought some clothes for myself. Now I won't have to attend D's baptism in the nude. I'd guess our pastor would have frowned upon that. I got not one, but three shirts and two pairs of Capri pants. I told my mom that since I bought some new clothes that will probably make me lose a bunch of weight so that they don't fit anymore.

Not that it would be a bad thing.

Today, I took the kids to a local (small) zoo. We met my parents, who were babysitting my 2 nephews, there, along with 3 other friends and their children. That went okay other than the fact that both of my older children ran across a road without any grown ups with them. They did, however, stop and look both ways before charging across. We also took a picnic lunch and ate there. Apparently so did the mosquitoes as my ankles and wrists are bitten up.

I have several blog posts in my head that I want to get written but they're not coming out of my fingertips. The posts usually start getting written in my head when I'm trying to sleep. Did you know that I have an almost-two-month-old? Yeah, I should be sleeping, not writing blog posts in my bed.

I have 1,839,472 things to do to prepare for this birthday party but I'm not getting that done either. Well, not tonight I guess. There's tomorrow. And Sunday.

We unearthed the battery baby swing a couple of days ago and D had her inaugural swing. She seems to enjoy it. I think. Either that or she's thinking WTF is this thing they've got me in now? Possibly both. Speaking of sleeping and swinging...that's what D is currently doing.

I'm thinking about getting this stroller. Thoughts? I don't jog, but I thought the bigger wheels would be good for taking the stroller (and therefore, the baby) on all terrains. (grass)

Also, I'm starting to get bummed about my etsy store. I haven't sold anything in more than two months besides a few cards to some of my relatives (thank you!). I know the economy is in the toilet, but sheesh, my cards cost less than a Hallmark card and they're unique--not mass-produced! Oh well. I'll keep it open for a little while longer and see what happens I guess.

According to the doctor (at my post-partum visit this week) I am 7 pounds under my pre-preggo weight. I'm still fat, mind you, but hey it's something. I guess if I quit eating all those cookies and gigantic bowls of ice cream I'd probably lose more.

So that's it. My nuthin' post because that's all I can come up with right now. The next one will be better. I think.

Or, I'll just put up a photo of my kids.

The lady next door gave us a stroller much like that. I LOVE IT. But it is big, cumbersome and difficult to take along. We use it when we are traveling straight from home. (works great all terrains!)

I wish I had done some housework this week too, one great thing about work ... it always waits for us to do it!

Good luck with the party planning!

"WTF is this thing they've got me in now? " LOL!

You are so busy it amazes me.

Wow, 7lbs under your preprego weight! How is your incision healing? No more thinking of blogs before bed. Sleep, sleep, sleep.

A couple of thoughts-- jogging strollers are long as they can fold flat for transport. Mine does, and I take it everywhere!

Congrats on your weight loss! I told you that you were looking really good!

About the party planning-- sorry we will miss it and not get to see everything you did!

Wow, I missed a lot being off blogging... you had another baby? Completely missed that one! Congratulations!

And interesting you have an etsy store, I'm currently preparing to set up a stationery site there, too. Sorry to hear sales have been slow. I say keep the site up though. They are really nice, very pretty. Good luck!

Hi Heather, it was nice to meet you in the chat room the other day!

I have a lot of nothin' days, too. Isn't it amazing how a whole day can go by and nothing productive gets done?
