I think I am nesting. I also think it’s a little too early for that. Maybe it’s because I had Thursday and Friday off from school and have had waaaay too much time on my hands. I rearanged Eli’s room and set up his big boy bed, which we found by the dumpster in our old apartment complex. Does that make us freegans?
I mainly just wanted to know if his crib mattress would fit into it. So now the toddler bed frame is set up, nothing in his room is in the same place it was before … and he refuses to sleep. He is such a creature of habit. Even now… he wails out to me (mama, maaaamaaaa) over the baby monitor, I reach over and turn it off. Heartless. Mama needs a break.
On a completely different subject: There comes a time in the dead middle of winter when winter food just is NOT cutting it for you any more. You all know the feeling. What I wouldn’t give to go out to our garden and pick some fresh vegis right now. Our stash of 35 lbs. of frozen blueberries lasted only until November this year. Note to self: next year. 50 pounds. Don’t be such a pig. We have a toddler who loves “blues” and we were happy to feed him this healthy snack. We also had a pregnant woman who craves sweet tarts, thai food, and blueberries. So, alas, all our summer bounty preserves have dried up. We didn’t have time to can anything in the midst of the move. For next summer I have big plans. We will not be craving that freshness at this time next year!
The 2006 garden in all it’s glory. My husband is such a perfectionist.
On a more postitive note: I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed all the snow. I did not get tired of it, annoyed by it or scared of it. You have no idea how sick I was of seeing facebook status updates complaining about the snow. Since when was it a huge punishment to stay home and hang out with your family? Now, if you were stuck some other place besides home, then you have my permission to complain. If you were a college kid stuck home with your parents, yes, you can complain. If you are complaining because you can’t shop, I have no sympathy for you.
Recently, we’ve had some pretty major flooding around here (hence the school closure). We live a good 15 minutes from anywhere that floods so we took a little drive yesterday to survey the damage. I-5 was closed so there we truck lined up for a good mile at one exit, just waiting for the freeway to reopen.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this little bit of random news. If I lost you in the first paragraph, that’s OK with me. It’s been theraputic and a good way to ignore a crying toddler.
