Charles and I have been tossing around the idea of going to Chicago for weeks. It's only a 5 hour drive from where we are staying. With our trip being half over and it growing colder we knew we needed to go sooner than later.
Tonight on the couch we decided...lets go...TOMORROW! He's going to use his paid time off he has been holding onto. It's set. We booked a hotel for three nights. I might not blog much because I'll be busy for four days getting on and off the double decker bus.
I'm excited and terrified. It was 11pm when we decided so here I sit at 1:23 am with wet hair, no clean diapers, clothes in piles, dishes in sink, washer running and a growing list of things to do.
What better way to add to the stress?...blog
To keep things short and easy today's Thankful's were inspired from my last 10 iPhone photos.
Thankful This Week For:
|1-I'm always thankful when I'm pregnant, and if I am, I'd still be,|
but I'd also appreciate a few more months to loose more baby weight.
I didn't run this week, that may not have helped.
|2-I bought [and carried] a purse in who knows how long. It's exciting. Although I do miss carrying all my contents out to my car in my hands and loosing things in the stores.|
|3-A Moses Sandwich. It's low in calories, but high in laughter.|
|4-the iPhone's ability to snap inconspicuous photos of hilarious people|
who wear fancy sweat suits that match their twin boy and girls'.
[I will need to crop this photo later so you can see more clearly.]
|5-McCann's Irish Oatmeal. It's great for milk supply, healthy, real, and my whole family eats it|
[with sugar of course].
|6-A much needed manicure. I decided to go a shade of Fall and veer from my normal boring clear. Nevermind that my nail tech told me my fingers were puffy from having kids or that I was pale.|
|7-Ohio sunsets. They are gorgeous day after day.|
I think it's the lack of pollution compared to Atlanta? I don't know. I will miss them.
|8-Being able to find things in my purse, that I now carry, yay! Can anyone guess what that purple thing is? Clearly I drink lots of bottled water and steal corn from the corn maze.|
|9-Boys that do fight, but have moments like this where it's shear love [wanting to sit together on the same row]!|
