Welcome, Friday!

I’m super-duper excited that tomorrow is Friday!!! Today didn’t go that well with all the munchkins. Seemed everyone was having a hard time listening and following directions as well as playing nicely together! Whew! I may be a fat pregnant lady, but I can still hustle if I have to correct some saucy or out right defiant behavior. If they think they’re going to pull that one over, hopefully today gave them a glimps into reality. 😉

Anyway, I was glad to see the ladies go home, and glad to get my own two in bed! It’s been a long day, and a long week!! I’m seriously looking forward to this weekend, and will be as completely lazy as I possibly can be! Lazy days of parenthood are not nearly the same as lazy days of singlehood or even newlymarriedhood, but they are still good. 😀 Stuart comes from a long line of “non-relaxers” so he will most likely be as busy as ever this weekend. I guess it’s relaxing in it’s way, some people like to relax with more work, but I’m hoping that I can get some ACTUAL rest in there somewhere. Perhaps the lads can help their dad with the serious relaxation while I do the easy stuff! 😉

Although, I’m pretty motivated to get baby girl’s room done now, so that might come into play with my weekend plans. My brother, James, came over for the express purpose of painting the room for me!!! Woo-Hoo!!! It was desperately in need of some new paint, and while I figured it would get done someday, I wasn’t terribly motivated to do it myself. Now it’s all shiny and new looking with a creamy color on the walls. The paint I chose has just a teeeeeeeny touch of a pink.. more like a far away suggestion. 😉 So that worked out well. It doesn’t look pink when you see it, but if you really look closely it has a touch of that Southwestern deserty pink in it. Now if the chocolate colored polka dots I ordered would just arrive then we’d really make something out of it!! I forgot to take a true before picture, but I’ll take one tomorrow before I put up her little wall quote. At least that has arrived. 😉 I’m really excited about this tiny room and the sweet little bundle it’s being prepared for! Yay!!!

Speaking of bundles, a gal in our church is having a shower for myself and another lady who just had a baby girl. It’s going to be on Sunday after church, and I’m sure will be a ton of fun! It’s hard to tell people what you “need” when you’ve already had a kid (or two) because most of the ‘gear’ and such is still usable. My wonderful sis-in-law is getting a car seat cover for our infant seat. I know it wasn’t a necessary thing, but I thought it would be nice to have something a little more girlie for her than the blue seat that Qade and Myles used. The cover I found is a giraffe print with chocolate and lime green accents. 🙂 I love it!! Think I’ll make a hat or something out of it when it’s done being used! Ha! But anyway, back to the shower, I did mention that we can always use diapes and wipes! So I imagine that’s what we’ll be bringing home! 🙂 It’ll be a fun day, though probably pretty tiring. I wear out very quickly on Sundays I’ve discovered. I enjoy the preaching and the kind people in the church, but it is a difficulty to live 45 min away and then have to take care of shopping on church days too. Still, I’m thankful for the church and the wonderful ladies who run the sunday school program for our lads!

I’m rambling rather randomly now, so I think that’s a sign that it’s time for bed! Hope that you all have a fantastic Friday!!! I certainly plan to. It might involve a lot of rope and duct tape, but I’m gonna have a good Friday! 😉 Just kidding, of course!!!!!!

Here is the other self portrait I took that I posted on FB. I thought perhaps I’ll stick it up here too in case any of you missed it there. It seems to be the favorite based on feedback. 🙂 Ta ta!
