because if I don’t look on the bright side, I might just cry a little…

Today’s accomplishments:

“successful” trip to Target in which my previous posts about not going to Target were quickly forgotten.

nursed Annie (both sides) while she was strapped in the front-pack. completely avoiding red-faced, baby-goat noises all together.

ate a whole breakfast including coffee from a travel-mug JG ingeniously suggested. And a bagel my toaster oven (miraculously) didn’t burn.

dressed Sam in under thirty minutes.

remembered EVERYTHING on my grocery list without fishing it from my purse to double-check.

ate lunch. (okay. this hasn’t technically happened yet, but I’m dreaming of a turkey sandwich right now and I vow not to disappoint my stomach)

won my first game of Words With Friends against a random opponent on my new-to-me incredi-phone

changed an itty bitty diaper on my lap in the front seat of my van without having to change my clothes when I got home.

lost and then found a new hot-wheels helicopter.

purchased a hearty supply of tiny underpants.  potty school updates to come.

sad attempt at a nap involving television and little dog barking at camels, dogs, chickens. (still sort of annoyed that every channel I flipped to featured fauna)

BLOG POST…(is it dorky that I’m raising the roof right now?)

 

 

is that all I have done today? wow. it really is.

oh, wait. I showered.

now MARVEL AT ME while I pretend my house isn’t a disaster and my socks match one-another. mwah-hahahahahahahahah!  thursday hasn’t seen the last of me yet.

I don't know how you do it. I really don't. That's not meant to be insulting, I'm just kind of in awe. In awe in a way that doesn't necessarily make me want to emulate, but that I find impressive nonetheless.

Sounds like you're doing great! I don't think I was doing anywhere near all of that when my third was less than three weeks old...

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

i don't have half that many accomplishments for today and i don't even have any kids. and i work from home. and i didn't even bother washing my hair today.

I wonder how the rest of the day went...

Wow. I am marveling like crazy. I LOVE words with friends, but have never played a random opponent. Maybe I should email you my username so we can play. Also, Olive barks at EVERY LIVING THING on tv, and also at fictional beings like aliens and cartoon characters. I blame HD.

@Octohawk: Well...as JG suggested in that comment below, things went downhill starting at about three that afternoon. Tears all around and some major tantrum throwing from my little dude. But hey, it's a new day. Every day.

@Maryanne: I certainly am out and about earlier this go-round. But I believe it's because my son gets bored and cranky at the house if we are shut-in too long. He is better behaved in public places. I should be happy about that, right?

@Lucky: I showered and wet my hair. It's practically like washing it if you get it wet. My legs and armpits got a shampoo...

@Jess: ew. You OF ALL PEOPLE should not be skipping a shower.

@JG: nobody needs to know how the rest of the day went down. trying to keep things light an airy up in herrr.

@Leslie: bring it on. i am not so great yet, but that's because i haven't looked up all the Q and X words in the dictionary. :) email me your username. Also, my dog doesn't care for that newfangled computer-generated-animation either. And chicken noises? Fuggettabowdit.

I'm impressed with the grocery store trip alone. I always find myself walking out and saying "damn" because I forgot the one thing I needed.
