I used to be so happy to see Fridays arrive. Now, it's just like any other day, except that I get to get out of the bed in the morning without dreading the day and what some boss will throw at me. I stagger to the bathroom, douse myself in the sink until I am awake, then shiver over the heater until I warm up. Then I very quietly try to get a few things done before Sammy or Anna wake up. Some days, I manage to get a few ideas on paper or a bit of promoting done before one of them starts to stir, but most days, I barely have enough time to get out the clean diaper for each, the bottle for him, sippy cup of water for her, and a fresh change of clothes for each before someone is rolling over and ready to start their day.
Today, I barely made it out of the bathroom before he was getting antsy, but I knew it wasn't time for him to eat yet. My husband had just crawled back into the bed from feeding him at 3:30, so I knew he had at least another two hours in him before he had to eat again. So I quickly wrapped him up in his blanket, grabbed the pacifier, and spent the rest of the morning before Anna woke up rocking him in the rocking chair. It was a good morning.
And today, I cleaned. I don't have a set day to clean, but felt like it today, so I gathered all her toys up, grabbed the night's collection of spit-upped clothing and blankets and proceeded to take them down to the washer. I came back upstairs, picked up all her toys again, and swept up the floor (stopping intermittently to pick up her toys three more times). It is now 2:12 in the afternoon, and I'm about to start going through items for a destash sale on Artfire. I have a ton of beads that I no longer need, and I may have some yarn and fabrics coming soon. I'm only able to clean out my studio every few days because it does not have heat.
I will probably be scanning the beads in via my PSC printer because my digital camera is being...well...odd. I think it has a short in it somewhere. Sometimes it takes the pictures perfectly, other times, there is a picture on the video screen when I click the button, but the pictures come out black. I really need to get a new one, but with it being the Christmas season, all of our extra cash is going towards groceries for the dinner and presents for the babies. And since I have SO many beads to destash, I will just be scanning them in.
Going to scoot for now and get busy. Need to put on Veggie Tales or Dora the Explorer to keep Anna entertained anyway.
