Still Alive

I have this beautiful baby who hates sleeping.  I would be surprised by it, except her siblings also hated sleeping (they still kind of do) so at least I can recall that eventually she might think of sleeping in longer segments.  The lack of sleep stops me from doing most anything besides lying on the floor and crying about how tired I am and feeding three people besides myself.  Unfortunately for Aaron dinners have been a little lackluster in the past few months.  And by last few months I mean 8.5 months ago since I had Allison.

My wonderful cousin gave us his swing set/play house he was retiring.  This became a huge project for Aaron, necessitating many power tools, much lumber, and multiple trips to Lowe’s.  Several months later it is (mostly) completed and everyone rejoices.  Except now instead of hearing how someone shoved someone else on the stairs/slide (the slide/platform have been finished for several weeks) I get to hear about someone not letting the other have a turn on the swing.  Even though there is an identical swing right next to it.  3 and 4 year olds…  But we are all grateful to Aaron for his hard work on the awesome playset.

I currently have a quilting obsession.  It seems my obsessions revolve.  I go in and out of being friends with my sewing machine and perhaps that is part of it.  Maybe when it gets cooler outside I can return to lip balm and hard lotion bar making & selling obsession.  The heat makes that kind of impossible.  My blanket making obsession is so bad that I have opened (another) etsy shop to sell them.  So I can buy more fabric.  To make more quilts.  That makes sense.

I am doing something so stupid and unlike me.  Except that I did it one other time.  I joined a friend’s 8-week diet/exercise challenge.  It is terrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrible.  Did I mention that it is only day 4?  I need to stop being vain and get back to eating cookies.  Because let’s not lie, I am not doing this challenge to be healthy.  I am doing it to be less pudgy in my middle.  Stupid vanity.  Cookies and not exercising are soooooooo much better.

My birthday is in less than a week and I have planned no awesome party.  This is very strange and I can only contribute it to my lack of brain power due to lack of sugar.

I have a really great post in my brain about people who reserve the sidewalk but it will have to wait for another day.  But now that I wrote that here I will have to do it.

    Happy Birthday, Kelsey.

    How about eating better, because when you get to be your mommy’s age, your health will bite you in the butt? Seriously, do it because you will have fewer regrets. It comes fast. The kids are gone and you are sitting with diabetes, or worse.

    You don’t have to stop eating rubbish — just less.

    Love you…
