around here

June 5, 2015

Around here it’s been a fairly normal week. We are in money-saving mode and I’ve managed to trick myself into considering it a game to see how little money I can spend. I’m also planning a trip to Galveston (an island town about an hour away from us) for next weekend, and after that a big house decluttering. Both have me excited in different ways. :)

Around here Meredith is healing up from a dog bite she got last weekend. We know the dog well so we aren’t worried about rabies or anything crazy like that, but it was still scary. Dog bites can do strange things and hers sure enough got infected. It’s not healing quite like I want it to, so I’m giving it the weekend and if it’s not any better we will head back to the doctor.

Around here I haven’t been getting enough sleep. It’s taken a toll on me so we are all working on getting a better bedtime routine in place. My morning routine is definitely not as good when I get to sleep too late or wake up a million times at night.

Around here Liam has been healthy the past week after getting over a second virus in as many weeks. He followed up with the ENT and is clear on that front, thankfully. He does have a weird little rash on his face that has been there for weeks, though. For now I’m trying different OTC creams to see if anything works.

Around here I’m gearing up for a busy weekend with two kids’ birthday parties on the same day that David has to work. Other than basic chores I’m keeping my expectations low for what will get accomplished.

Around here I’ve been getting a lot of reading done (currently reading this and listening to this) but not much crafting. I did just place an order for prints from the Project Life app, and I’m excited to share those soon.

And around here I’ve been having so much fun posting to the new Facebook page! So far I’ve been using it to share links that I might normally save up for a link roundup. I’d love to get some discussion going over there soon.

Have an awesome weekend!

    From Delaney:

    You should check out the TIDB (Things I Didn’t Buy) app… You basically make a note of all of the times you showed restraint, and it gives you a total of how much you’ve saved! Super motivating! Enjoy your weekend!

    Thank you for that tip!! I actually started myself a spreadsheet like that but didn’t keep up with it. An app I can do!

    From Becky:

    Hope you got a little bit done this weekend, or at least that the kids had a blast at the birthday parties! Around here I’m hoping some baby-wearing will help me feel like I can get more done in a day than just pumping, feeding/changing the baby and getting him to sleep. I love him dearly but would love to be able to multi-task with him!

    I may have to check out that app; sounds really awesome!

    Hope you had a great weekend. Around here, I’m working on getting back into the swing of things as I was at a conference 2 days last week and then had 2 days off with Knight, which was glorious but today my mind is NOT focused on work.
