So, I love my husband. The man is swamped at work, he’s getting an MBA, works late, takes care of me when he’s home…he’s very busy! On top of all that, he cares about what I think and feel and when something’s bothering me, he wants to do everything he can to fix it. Flashback to our world on Saturday:
Disheartening, depressing. I knew there was no way I could get in there and clean up this mess. My body’s just not there yet. Now, here’s what the room looked like yesterday:
My husband rocks. He and the kids got in there and totally whipped that room into shape. I’m not going to lie. The boys did NOT want to do it, but Sean wasn’t going to do it himself because there were a lot of other things he needed to do and so getting the room that clean required some assistance.
Today, they came to me and said they were so glad that Sean had them help clean up the room. They were tired of it being dirty and felt overwhelmed by it all. They said it was nice to clean it up with their dad. They have been proud of themselves for keeping it clean, too and are being quite dilligent for now in picking up their messes.
I’m happy I don’t have to worry about cleaning up Chernobyl when I’m better!
So, what else is going on around here? Well, today I’m going to try and finish the book that Carri gave me. It’s really funny! Also, I’ve been shopping online for beds for Iain. Right now, he and Ryan share a room but lately Iain has been asking for his own room. He wants one of those loft beds under which you can fit a desk. You know why? Because he’s almost a teenager y’all. Well, he’s going to be 9 in June but in his world, that’s pretty close. I found a bed on Ikea’s website for $149 and that was a fantastic price! Shipping was $126 though so Sean and I are going to look around here first and see what we can find. We are in North Carolina where people come from all over the shop for furniture so it’s probably a good idea to look around a little. Iain also wants a laptop. LOL
Yesterday my sister and the fam came over and I took the opportunity to snap some pics with my new lens. My niece is so funny! At one point she posed like a little model! She’s turning 2 on March 6th. Take a look:
One thing I’ve really been missing is the freedom get out and take pictures anytime, anywhere and hopefully in another week or so I’ll feel confident enough physically to get out and do that.
Hey, have any of you seen the program on the History Channel called, “The Universe”? It’s awesome and the kids and I have really gotten into it lately. It really is fascinating and tackles some ideas that I had never thought of before. Iain especially likes it, specifically the episodes that deal with time travel. What are you guys watching? I’d really like to know!!
