Re:Deactivated

Ander

My apologies to you lovely readers–

I have been trying to consolidate all the different blogs I’ve had over the years & I finally found an article on how to do just that, well, little did I know that one of my articles from another blog featured a picture that WordPress did not allow, therefore, I got deactivated & it took a good 12 hours to get a response. I was definitely not a happy camper to have been deactivated without a reason why however, once they gave me a reason this morning, I could understand their reasoning, although it was a picture from a website going against what the website was so, I was using it in a completely different context. Oh well, it’s all fixed & we’re back up & running.

Sadly, now that the blog is finally active again, it’s time to get me some breakfast, the older to minions some lunch, Z to sleep, & the house tidied up & everyone dressed as R is going to be home for me to take him back to work because we have to go back into the doc (OB) & I have to get the ParaGuard in & possibly have another colposcopy because my biospy was normal & my PAP smear was abnormal–3 abnormal PAP smears in less than a year & a half & 3 colposcopies in a year–or has it been less than a year. I am not quite sure honestly, I have lost track of everything they have wanted to do.

126editedThe weather has managed to cool down the last couple of days–started cooling down Saturday & of course, Sunday was the day that I managed to get the pool out & setup for the boys so, now they have a pool setup & full of some water but, it’s too cold to play in. It’s one of those “wash your car & it rains the next day” kind of things. Guess I’ll just have to learn to start doing things at the spur of the moment instead of waiting so long.

Definitely a day for a nap–I meant to get one yesterday but, I got so wrapped up in little Z & trying to get stuff downsized & cleaned up. Today, I shall clean while the boys eat & then I shall nap while the boys nap–speaking of naps, I think Ander is going to need an extra long one today. Sadly, he’ll have an extra short one because I have to be to the doctor’s before his nap is usually over.

Have you ever posted anything that you got “deactivated” for? What are your plans for today? Ever need a little nap? Have you ever gotten distracted or so wrapped up in something that you forgot to do something else?

Growing in ALL Directions

Our little man has grown up quite a bit. Can’t believe that Z is already two months old! ¬†Our little men are growing like weeds. Z slept through the night for the first time last night. He slept until 6 AM, woke up & ate, & then he went back to sleep for another 3 hours! It’s such a handsome little sleeper. This morning, he was smiling and fluttering his eyes–looked like he was trying to decide whether he wanted to wake up or fall asleep. It was so cute! Just a little smile creeping up on is face and then sliding away and then back on repeatedly.

Yesterday, L got into the food coloring when I tried to take care of Z after I made the Lava Lamps yesterday. A got covered in pink food coloring & there was a few spots on the carpet. I didn’t see them until R got home and got upset because L also drew on the back of the door with chalk & I didn’t have time to clean it up. But, I used the Bissell Stomp n Go pads and got most of the pink food coloring out. Need to work on it again some more today to try & get the rest out, as R doesn’t want to lose our deposit on the pink stain when we move out next month. Oh the things that happen with children!

Shot some pictures yesterday during bath-time yesterday & after R got home from work & I took the older two outside to play in the yard. Got a bunch of other pictures edited & posted. & my fever went away so, now I get to wait for the rest of it to leave so that I can get the other photo shoots scheduled & widen my portfolio. I am super excited! Got two to do before the end of this month & then 5 more that I’ll be working on throughout the next couple of months, whenever people would like them. Can’t wait for this to keep growing!

We have to show the house tomorrow–because our landlord is trying to sell it. So, I have to be out of the house for an hour tomorrow. Going to be a pain because I’ll have to be out of the house for an hour, come back for 45 minutes & then leave again to pick R up from work–unless he works OT again. Oh, the things we have to do when we have kids & only one car. Ugh.

Need to start downsizing the boy’s toys again! It’s so hard to figure out what to get rid of & what to keep with three such very diverse ages. But, just have to take it one step at a time–sounds like L is up & about, instead of napping so, time to go put in back on his bed so that A & Z can get good naps. Then, lunch, laundry, dishes, & more cleaning.

135edited(1)What DIY crafts to you do with your kids? How do you clean stains out of carpet, clothing, etc.? What are you favorite photo ops? How often do you have to downsize your kid’s toys? How do you decide what is too many & how to get rid of others?
