Videos & Misc. Chatter
Ada slept from 8 pm until 9 this morning, with some wakings to nurse but no actual awake screaming or anything.
Unfortunately I was drowning in my own snot–damn cold! I kept gagging every time I would drift off to sleep. I gave up and took sudafed, which took the edge off of the drainage, but then it made me wide awake. I’d rather be wide awake of my own accord than forced awake by an angry baby though. I feel much better today rest-wise. Now if only I could hear out of both ears and breathe through my nose…then I’d be all set for a good day. Hah! Maybe tomorrow.
I have so much laundry to catch up on. It’s the one thing I’ve allowed to fall behind and now it’s insane. I have a mountain of clean clothes waiting to be folded and put away. I should be doing that right now instead of typing. I have another mountain of clothes waiting to be washed. I keep separating them out into loads by color, then they get mixed back up again and new dirty clothes get added on top. If only my family would go naked for a few days so I could catch up! Or maybe if a laundry fairy would come to my house and help me fold and put away some of these clothes.
A lot of it needs to be boxed up because it’s no longer warm weather. Poor Rosie has nothing to wear! She outgrew all of her 5T clothes and is wearing 6x now in shirts, but some size 6 in pants are still too big, yet some 5t in pants are too short. Awkward. She really only wants to wear dresses anyway, by her own choice. I am having a very hard time finding appropriate play dresses for her age. Once we left the world of 5t we have found ourselves in some kind of scary mini-adult clothing section. Why are there no sweet non-babylike play dresses for little girls? Especially in long sleeves! I’ve found a few jumpers she can wear and I’m thinking about trying to sew some, but I can’t seem to find the time at the moment. Imagine that.
I’ve already sorted through Ada’s clothes and picked her up a few more things at the consignment shop, so she’s pretty much set. I couldn’t find anything for Rosie at the consignment store, all of the stuff in her sizes weren’t things she wanted to wear. *sigh*
Rosie is also difficult in shoes! She has extremely wide feet, thanks to Tyler. I make fun of Tyler and say he has duck feet–his feet are like flat triangles. Poor Rosie. Regular shoes don’t fit on her. She loves the cute shoes at Target, but she can’t fit her feet in most them! She desperately tries, how sad. It’s kind of ironic. Rosie is tall and thin, but her feet are not. We had to get her dance shoes from a dance store that supplied extra wide shoes. It takes a lot of shopping around to find her comfortable, cute every day shoes. Shopping around with Ada is not pleasant, believe me.
I have to get on with my day. I’m working on planning out what I want to do with Rosie for November during school. We’re going to study the Mayflower and Pilgrims and I’ve got some great ideas. I’ll share it soon. I’m all out of dog food, cat food, and chicken feed so I’ve got to drag my snot-laden body out to Walmart and the feed store today.
I really have to get started on my chores while the girls are happily playing. I loathe dragging my sick body around to do stuff…I fondly remember being sick as a kid and laying in bed watching TV all day. Aaah…the pleasures we take for granted!
On the other hand, I also love being an adult and not having to do what my parents say. So…yeah. I can’t really complain too much.
Real quick here are some videos from the past week or so, for the few people that like to watch them…
This is what we do on the weekend. Lay in bed and chat.
Then throw everything to one side of the bed and jump on it. (Warning: Little girl squealing may hurt your ears!)
A stupid video Tyler made of me when he was testing how to upload HD video directly from the iPhone without the automatic compression/loss in quality.
