19/52 (catching up)

May 22, 2015

Now that tax season is finished, I've felt the need to get myself back to work.  Piper is one year old and I can't just sit on my hands (not that stay at home moms sit on their hands... but I need to be doing other stuff.  The wake up, then breakfast, nap, lunch, nap, countdown till bedtime leaves me wanting something else to focus my attention on.  Something else that I can start and finish, leaving me satisfied at completion so I can return to my neverending daily tasks with joy and being "tired, in a good way" as Lady Sybil put it so perfectly.

That is why my weekly portrait is late (Suh-HOOOO late), but I promise there will be more pictures and videos up for you to see very very soon.  I'm working every second I get, every day, to launch this new business.  I'm thrilled, I'm exhausted.  What else is new?

update:  Just before publishing this, someone stole my laundry card.  I have an entire load of laundry that I need to leave tomorrow morning on a weekend away and no way to do it.  Because there are no 24 hour laundry places in this sleepy town.  I won't lie.  I have used the C word a lot this evening.  That is all.

another update:  after spending the entire weekend re evaluating my opinion on the general morality of people, I found my laundry card, misplaced under my pillow on my bed.  It is still possible that the thief returned the card 'a la tooth fairy' by breaking into my apartment after some deep personal reflection on the ethical ramifications of petty crime.
Either way, I'm thankful that I don't have to administrate a replacement.  

update #3: Piper literally just bit me in the ass.  Right now.  So that just happened.  Hashtag: oneyearoldproblems.

  1. Glad that you are getting into the swing of daily life and motherhood. Sometimes I lose things as well and think someone took them but I mostly find the item somewhere in the house.

  2. Hahahahaha! Your updates were the best part of this post. I lol'd. Either way I am glad your laundry card is back. And the biting thing? So funny. Everett bites Aletheia's fingers now if she puts them in his mouth. I don't think he's doing it to be mean, because she "bites" him when he puts his fingers there, but she has no teeth. Little jerk ;)
