Okay, once again I went MIA. This time it was not because I was taking a moment to regroup and get a new perspective– this time it was because I was working hard for the money. I worked 5 days last week- I know, no big deal for most of the world- but, it was the first time I had done so since before Baby Bub was born. And it once again made me appreciate how hard it is for not only working parents but also working people everywhere. And the icing on that cake was that Baby Bub was on Spring Break but I will get to that. So there, I have been- working.
I have been thinking about what I could blog about today- and since I haven’t really done anything overly worthy of note- I decided to do a short list of things to acknowledge and move forward from- much like guest writer Sarah did with her So What Wednesday post. And who knows, this same topic may appear later as well.
1. Working 5 days a week: Fa-Get About It!
Undoubtedly, I have an amazing view from the office. But, when I work 5 nights a week- I don’t really see Baby Bub-regardless of the fact that he was on Spring Break, my house goes to crap and I’m dead tired. (Yes, I’ll take some cheese with my whine.) It’s my reality. So, Fa-Get About It!
2. Doing the Dishes: Fa-Get About It!
If you know me, you know cleaning the house is not an area in which I excel. Some people have the ability to clean and make it look like it sparkles, ahem, my Moma, but me- it never looks like that when I clean. And when I am dead tired, doing the dishes falls to the bottom of the list so, Fa-Get About It!
3.Sunshine: Fa-Get About It!
It seems like every Spring I am taken aback by how much it rains! This week last year was when we got over 20 inches of rain in less than 2 days. Well, it has commenced raining and I feel like we may never see the sun again! For some unknown reason I was wide awake this morning at 4:30 and was rewarded by getting to listen to a thunder storm. But, sunshine: Fa-Get About It!
4. Potty training: Fa-Get About It!
I know that Baby Bub will eventually get potty trained- that he won’t wear diapers to college. But. He is in no way interested in using the potty. Now, we have been talking about the potty for months and months. And both of the downstairs pottys have a big jar of M&Ms just waiting to reward him for using the potty. We even have Thomas the Train big boy underwear and he loves them. And he knows what you are supposed to do in the potty. Most recently he has consented to sitting on the potty- used to he wouldn’t even entertain the idea- but, as far as actually using the potty… Fa-Get About It!
5. Heartburn: Fa-Get About It!
Y’all. In the last month or 6 weeks I have been overtaken with heartburn! It is atrocious! The only time in my life that I have ever really had it was when I was pregnant and my midwife prescribed something for it and it magically went away! And I have not had it since- but lately it strikes right before I go to sleep and it not only jars me awake by stops me in my tracks! Heartburn, I want to Fa-Get About It!
Well, that’s my first ever Fa-Get About It Friday! These are the 5 things that I have going on in my world lately. What are the things in your world you would like to Fa-Get About? As always, we want to hear about it.
