Oh My!

This week, I made it my personal mission to do nothing.  After all the business leading up to school, I just didn't want to do anything.  I also feel like I deserve a little break before all the hard stuff happens next week.
  • Mark has to go out of town for 2 whole weeks!  ARRRGGGH!  He even has to stay the weekend which messes up all of our plans.  He will miss meeting Annabelle's teacher for the first time and we had a super fun party to go to on Saturday which we've now had to decline going to.  :( 
  • I'm having to line up a few babysitting days while he's gone so that I can meet the new teacher plus dance begins and I don't want to miss if I don't have to.  These are the times when I wish my parents and in-laws lived in Williamsville too and not Lancaster.  I know a 20 minute drive is no big deal but because it will be later at night I feel bad stealing grandma and grandpa's relaxation time.
  • I've decided to try a 3 day detox diet while Mark's away.  He would completely be against it saying I was going too far but what he doesn't know won't hurt him.
  • I am promising myself that I will get a major handle on the organizing that I started at the end of summer.  I will get every. single. toy. upstairs and out of our living space.  I am seriously thisclose to being done with that.  But now I need to go through the boxes of stuff that were in the spare room and decided what is going and what is staying.
  • So all of that organizing will hopefully mean my house will be absolutely sparkling clean.  Here's hoping!
  • And the last thing that we need to figure out is when we are going zip-lining with my brother-in-law and his girlfriend.  It closes soon and I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to go!
OK done venting about my upcoming difficult weeks.  I know we'll be fine but the weekend he will be gone... I think will be the hardest for me to handle.  I think I need to research something fun for Annabelle and I to do together maybe with the grandparents or my sister and her kids. 


  1. Good luck with the detoxing and organizing. My system needs both right now too.

  2. Good luck with the detoxing. I couldn't do that.

    My husband is also away for a couple of weeks. It's tough. But I figure I did a year with him gone so what's a couple of weeks.
