Quick Takes Volume 28
For some reason my house simply won't stay clean. Bryan says it's because we live here, but I'm not buying it. He says messes are to be expected when you live in a house with three kids, but I'm not about to give up on having an immaculately kept home. Eventually it will happen and stay that way.
I just realized tonight that I've only blogged once since last Friday, not counting this particular post. I guess the days are getting away from me.
I stopped at the Amish market this morning and got myself two jelly donuts. It's been one of those weeks that made today a two jelly donut kind of day.
Bryan and I had to go to a meeting for Madeline's travel soccer team this evening. Not only was the meeting a huge waste of time, but it further solidified my feelings that I do not want my child playing for this inconsiderate, condescending, pompous man. (<-This is me being very nice.) Bryan is pursuing alternate training for Madeline so she will easily be able to find a place on a travel team at another club in the fall. She will be trying out at a few different clubs this Spring. I'm quite livid that her Thursday night practices have also had the time changed to coincide with her religious ed class. Guess which one has priority? If you guessed soccer you need to guess again.
It appears that Lent is creeping up on me. I had meant to do a Lent post, but I simply haven't had the time. It seems like I spend most of my time holding Katie, feeding her, changing her and cleaning up messes from explosive spit up. She's certainly keeping me busy! I haven't even had time to figure out what I'm giving up for Lent. I've considered giving up coffee or candy, but I'm not sure the kids or I will survive if I do that. I'm sure I'll figure it out.
My mom and dad got hooked on Boardwalk Empireafter my oldest brother gave them a promo copy of episode one that the casino he works for was giving out. My brothers, Bryan and I all like the show, but I think it's a bit too raunchy for my mom, not to mention the language. Bryan and I are really surprised that my mom wants to see more after watching the first episode. Even my other brother was surprised that my mom watched it considering how easily she is offended. I think she's willing to look past all the language, violence, and nudity because it's about Atlantic City and the surrounding areas. My parents live about 15 minutes away from A.C.
Katie is now four months old. I intended to write up a post about her yesterday, but I got caught up in several other things and never got around to it. Perhaps I'll get around to it later this weekend.
