I think we should have Mondays off work to recover from the weekend. I’m exhausted!
This morning Zach was laying on the bed after his bath waiting for me to come get him dressed. I was getting myself dressed and walked in to check on him. What I saw was so cute! He was laying there with his hand stretched out petting Pedro on the head. Every time he would stop, Pedro would push his head up under Zach’s hand to get some more. It was so cute I just had to take a picture. Unfortunately I didn’t have the camera nearby, so you have to deal with a pic from my phone. But still, how cute is that?
I can’t believe that we are at the end of September already. I really can’t believe that it has been a year since baby Zachary was created. A year can go by so fast. It seems like such a short time ago that I found out I was pregnant and now I have a 3-month-old baby. I wish there was a way to share with the whole internet just how amazing he is, but I’m not sure that there are any words sufficient to describe it. But, enough about him…for now anyway.
This is going to be a very busy, action packed weekend and I’m not sure I’ll survive. My brother and his wife are closing on their new house today and moving tonight. They were supposed to close on Wednesday, but it got pushed back. Because of that, they are in an even bigger rush to get moved. They have to be out of their apartment by tomorrow so Hubby and I promised to get there as soon as we can to help them get moved.
Then, on Saturday, we are celebrating my sister’s birthday at noon. It’s not actually until the 6th, but she’ll be in Chicago next weekend visiting a friend so we’re celebrating early. After we get together for lunch I agreed to take the boys for her so that her hubby can take her out for a movie. Then, with the nephews in tow, we’re going to a friend’s house to celebrate her little girl’s 7th birthday and will probably be there most of the night.
Sunday, we have to get up and go to church, return the boys to my sister, have a quick lunch, and then we’re going to the Chiefs/Eagles game at 3:00. By the time we get home from the game I think I’m gonna just crash. I just hope Zach can handle all of the running around without getting too fussy.
Plus, on top of all that, I really need to get my house cleaned as the in-laws are coming to town next week as well. I really need the energy fairy to come visit me. Or at least to hire a cleaning lady for a while.
I have spent years now trying to find the right person to cut my hair and so far the best person I have found is myself. Unfortunately, it’s kinda hard to cut my own hair because I don’t have eyes in the back of my head. I was under the impression that all moms had this feature, but apparently mine haven’t grown in yet. When they do, it will certainly solve my hair issues.
Anyway, so I have been searching and searching for a good hair stylist with no success. A few weeks ago I went to get a haircut because my hair is falling out (one of those lovely post-partum things). I told the girl exactly what I wanted, showed her a picture and thought she understood. She didn’t come even close to what I told her. So, I decided I would go elsewhere and have it cut again. I did that today. Do you think I got the cut I wanted? Of course not!
I really don’t understand what is so hard to understand about the kind of cut I want. It isn’t complicated. Yes, I have naturally curly hair which makes it a bit more difficult, but if you have been to cosmetology school and are licensed, you should know how to cut curly hair. I can do it and I haven’t been taught. I just figured it out myself. I have now wasted $60 and still don’t have the haircut I want.
I suppose my next step is just to do it myself and take the risk of being a bit crooked in the back. At least the curls will help hide it!
Sometimes I feel like my day is just not complete unless I have written a blog entry. My blog is my place to get out my excess energy. It is my place to rant, brag, be creative, and just release all of the things in my head. I suppose that’s why I like it so much. It is therapuetic in a way. Some days I don’t have a specific topic in mind to write about, but as soon as I start typing it usually rushes to me.
Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time investigating Content Management Systems. I have a website project that I’ve been putting off for a while because I would like to set it up with a CMS. I need something that I can set up and then have several different users update pages on a regular basis. It is for a non-profit, so I can’t really spend any money on a fancy system. I have considered using either Moveable Type or WordPress for it, but am not sure that either of them will be exactly what I want. So, I’ve been on a search and so far have not found just the right one.
During my search, however, I did come across a free blog host that some of you Tbloggers may be interested in. It seems almost everyone at Tblog is jumping ship all of a sudden and I’ve had lots of them asking for suggestions of places to go. My new discovery is http://www.blogsome.com/. The service is free and is run on WordPress, which is pretty user friendly. I haven’t tried out Blogsome yet, but I do use WordPress and have no complaints. If you are still looking around, it might be an option to try out. There is also the fairly new http://wordpress.com/, but it requires an invite which I haven’t received yet.
