I know I haven't been posting very often lately but it's not for lack of material, but lack of time. My head is full of things I want to blog about but I've had a hard time finding the time. The time I do find to spend on the computer is usually with Blaire in one arm and one hand on the keyboard. It's not easy to get a post together when you're typing one handed.
Hopefully I'll have more free time on my hands soon because Blaire has slept 10-11 hours the past four nights, waking to eat once and then going right back to sleep! I can't tell you how huge this is! Daytime naps are still a work in progress but I'm thrilled to have a baby who sleeps through the night. We're following the Moms on Call program (mostly) and it's going pretty well. I'm so happy we're all getting sleep at night. I'm hoping to write a post about our experience with Moms on Call. It's on the list...
I have a hair appointment on Saturday. FINALLY. The root situation is getting desperate. I like to say I'm unintentionally rocking the ombre look but in reality, I've got white trash roots. It's hard to appear as if you're a natural blond when you haven't had highlights in 9 weeks. Can't wait to remedy this situation. I should probably get the eyebrows waxed while I'm at it. My eyebrow girl moved to Miami and I haven't picked up a pair of tweezers in a looonnnggg time. Basically, I'm a hot mess. Minus the hot part.
This week, I had my first glass of wine since November 2010. Oh my word, it was good. I look forward to getting reacquainted with my old friend vino.
Five weeks after giving birth, my rings still don't fit. I'm so frustrated. I'm wondering whether they'll ever fit again or if I need to have them resized. I still have a bit of weight to lose before I'm back to pre-pregnancy weight (and a LOT of weight to lose to get back to where I want to be) so hopefully they'll fit when I'm back to my pre-baby weight. Here's hoping that day comes soon.
It's still 90-something degrees in Florida but weather be damned, I'm welcoming fall. I made pumpkin muffins, lit my Autumn Harvest candles, and look forward to painting my nails with Lincoln Park After Dark. (Don't worry, I'm not going to start waxing poetic about Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I think we're all tired of hearing about them. And honestly, I don't like them. I know, I know.) I can't wait to take Blaire to the pumpkin patch. I'm already envisioning the pictures. I'm trying to find her a Halloween costume but she's still tiny and I can't find anything small enough. I'm not at all crafty so making something is a last resort - and let's face it, a really bad idea.
There's more to say but I'm going to follow the advice of moms everywhere and sleep when the baby sleeps.
