7 Quick Ones

1.
If I could take the roof off and shake everything out of my house (into neat organized piles of course) so that I could reorganize and place what I want/need where I want/need it and store or get rid of the rest. I so want to reorganize my house and with a 10 week old baby...well....one step at a time.

2.
Holidays are wonderful..coming back from the holidays to the pile of laundry and a house that was left in a hurry because of circumstances outside of our control...not so wonderful. I wanted to leave with everything sparkly clean....not so much this go around.

3.
Communication...Communication...Communication...seems as though every aspect of life (personal and spiritual) bode well when there is proper communication going on. Aurgh not looking forward to a couple communications that will hopefully set everything right.

4.
Routine....that's what I am attempting to settle into with Ren, he is sleeping pretty well at night for the most part (except last night)...now to get his day napping, playing, eating....into a predictable routine.

5.
We are officially in all cloth diapers as of today! I was waiting for Ren to be big enough for the Bum Genius 3.0 to fit him properly...no leaks please...and now that we are home from our long summer holiday and I have (know that I have) a washer and dryer (the place we stayed at the beach said that there was a washer/dryer in the room...it was on the 1st floor (we were on the 3rd) and it cost $3 per load) glad we ended up using disposables, I was going to use cloth).

6.
We are doing salads and grilling for dinners this summer, trying to keep everything as light as possible....hubby complains about weight gain (just the normal "your life has now changed" there is a baby and wifey is not cooking as much and we have been out of any normal routine...weight gain) and I am pretty much what I weighed before getting pregnant minus a few pounds and would like to keep it off as well as lose some more.

7.
I was hoping that we would get an assignment and get to move this summer/fall....looks like we may be staying here till next summer....I was hoping to move...plus it would help me reorganize the house...LOL

Man, it can really be frustrating to get started on a routine for a baby. I struggled with it for a while with my first one, but it worked out after a couple of months. And it helped me keep my sanity! Good luck!

Sometimes I wish we could move just to get the benefits of reorganization, too! Baby stuff piles up like mad, I tell ya.

Thanks for the quick takes!

Loved the quick takes....Wouldn't we all like to shake the house down and have everything fall into place!!! Wishful thinking I know....You will get the hang of things and then it will change again, thats how life is! Love you sis!!
