I don’t know about you guys, but the moment we got to May, suddenly there was this ongoing (and lengthy!) list of things to do?
Like honestly every time I complete a post-it note worth of tasks, another springs up in its place with a completely bizarre and arbitrary list of activities to complete. And yet, I Keep Doing Them!
Just this morning I ordered Critter a pile of summer play clothes from Target because for the summer, his daycare turns into a “camp.” Which is great. I love that they make the effort to spend so much time outdoors with the children. But I need to send him to daycare in swim clothes, he will need a dry outfit to change into and he needs to keep extra clothes at school. Also, he needs clothes to wear at home?! We have been so blessed to receive a PILE of hand-me-downs from friends and family, and “thrift shop” has been on my to do list for two weeks but frankly, we’re at the point where if it doesn’t happen, we need a backup plan (AKA more clothes).
Meanwhile, I briefly contemplated the possibility of us needing to build a shed because it seems like there is not a lot of space in our garage? Like, we can park the cars in there just fine but between strollers/lawn mowers/snow blowers/stuff it is tight.
THEN I REALIZED WE WERE STORING WEDDING GIFTS WE HAVE NOT TOUCHED IN THE SEVEN YEARS SINCE WE GOT MARRIED. And not like This Is Special China For Special Occasions, but like Things We Never Asked For In The First Place.
This is what happens when you move while pregnant. Things just come along for the ride.
Anyway, we do not own any of those things anymore and now there is more storage space in our garage. Basement bedroom/storage room, I am coming for you next.
Meanwhile, Marcus is replacing all of the outlet and switch plate covers on 1/2 of our main floor that we bought LAST AUGUST so you know, we are just chipping away at projects like no one’s business.
We are still sourcing landscaping quotes for our yard because they range from Exorbitant to More Exorbitant and frankly for the amount they are asking so far, we can actually find the time and energy to do the project ourselves. I will look forward to providing an update once I actually know what is going to happen here. Plus, I bet y’all would love a summer full of updates about shoveling medium-sized gravel out of our yard (lol not).
If anyone has any laughable tales they would like to share, please do, we would like to hear them. Otherwise stay tuned for more of mine.
