It's been one heckuva week!

Well actually, one heckuva year so far!
What was I going to say?
don't know. can't remember. That's what happens when your little monkey of a two year old wakes up at 5 in the morning everyday and climbs out of his crib, and wakes up his brother in the process, so of course you can't go back to sleep. It's not like I'm getting to bed before midnight most days, thank you very much little monkey boy! I don't do well on five hours of sleep a day. I know people who do well on less, but I'm not one of them.
My foot is feeling MUCH better. I never really realized how much I take both of my feet for granted. I was hobbling out to the garage the other day, and managed to step on a lapel pin with my good foot. Oh the agony!!! There I am, hopping on my bad foot and trying to pull the blasted pin out of my other foot. I'm sure it would have been hilarious if it wasn't me. :)
Jon came home early Monday to lend an extra hand, since my foot was still pretty sore. Funny how somehow I still ended up doing laundry and changing most of the dirty diapers, and fixing dinner. (ok, really--he was great support for me that day.)
~~~~~~~~~ ~~
My house is really, REALLY making me crazy. Is it really so very impossible for everything to stay neat and tidy for more than twenty minutes? And why, WHY is it always a wreck when the Missionaries, Home Teachers, Visiting Teachers, Bishop stops by? Really guys, my house is occasionally clean. But only on the days when nobody comes to visit.
And why is it that the missionaries rarely come by, except of course for the one night, when I took a nice HOT soak in the tub, and put my jammies on after, sans bra? Here's me, running back to my bedroom to make myself decent, hoping I haven't traumatized them for life!!!
Haley get's baptized tomorrow, and she still doesn't have a white dress to wear!
I should be whipping it up on the sewing machine right now, but here I sit instead.
Best be getting myself busy.

Hope you have one heckuva weekend!

PS, I forgot to mention the real highlight of the week. The sweet little blog buddy playdate/meet and greet I got to attend.
Terresa was SO awesome, and so were the other ladies who attended. I hadn't "met" any of them before, but I look forward to getting to know them.
Ladies, I think the next time we do that sort of thing, it needs to be a girls night out sort of dealy, with no kids to worry about keeping corralled, that way I can really keep myself in the conversations. It was great fun though! Thanks!

Had to laugh at the missionary thing. I {heart} the missionaries but they do seem to just drop by at awkward times - jammies and no bra would be a scenario I could see happening to me - ha ha.

So glad your blogger meet went well - It is nice to know people in the real life :D

And you have one getting bapized today - exciting - a special day!!

Hope you get a nap sometime!!

I would have loved to be there with you and Terresa.

Good luck with the baptism!

Terresa said...

Yes, Mikki, a Mom's Night Out! I'm all for that next time, just lmk when/where!!

I'm laughing about your soak in the tub and the missionaries stopping by, that seems to happen all the time here, too.

Looking forward to seeing some of Haley's baptism pictures, hope it was a lovely special day!
