Parker is napping.
I am catching up on Hello Giggles articles (the “news”).
I am also researching political things.
And I am looking for diaper coupons (no luck).
After the above three sentences, I feel the urge to sing “muuuulti-tasking” in an opera voice.
Mayfield is asleep next to me on the couch, wearing her new sweater.
I’m finishing my second cup of coffee.
Still in my pajamas.
I need to fold laundry in order to keep up with my new “Do One Load of Laundry Every Day So That a Mountain Does Not Form” plan.
When Parker wakes up, we are going to the library. Crap, I will have a late fee from last time.
Andrew’s mom came over for dinner last night.
It is a busy week at the college – homecoming is this Saturday! Our first basketball game is tonight. (go eagles!)
I bought a bag of kale yesterday. Needless to say, sometimes in the produce section I get a little overwhelmed and buy things like, well, a giant bag of kale.
I ran a mile last night.
I got the new Us Weekly magazine on a whim for two reasons: A) I like that stuff, ok. And B) Jessica Simpson is on the cover talking about her struggle to lose the baby weight. I feel you, girl.
Thursday is November 1st, which means that it is technically ok to start occasionally listening to Christmas music. However, it does not mean that it is ok to go ahead and put up Christmas decorations. Let Thanksgiving have its moment, people.
I am currently experiencing a serious bout of what I like to call “Project Head,” where there are so many things I want to do (make curtains, paint a desk, etc.) that my head is about to explode. One thing at a time. One thing at a time.
I am thinking about getting one of those tall, skinny Christmas trees this year. They have them at Hobby Lobby, the ones where you can see the fake bark in the middle. I think they are so cool looking. The one we have is OLD, and it has been in storage since before we moved to Colorado. I love it so much, but I just know it is spider-infested, which grosses me out big time.
Tomorrow is Halloween. I should probably go buy some overpriced candy for the children. Would it be inappropriate if I dressed Parker up and took him trick-or-treating? All of the candy would be for me, obviously.
Peace out, beaches.
