I've got a lot going on.
We bought a house. Yup, a house. That's kind of a big deal. It's only a half a mile from where we currently live, but it's bigger. And nicer. And I will have a bathroom I don't have to share with three mini-people. Hooray!
Way back before I was an adult, I used to think that buying a house was simply that - one purchases a home. That was before I understood inspections and mortgages and appraisals and oh, the fact that when you buy a house, you also have to sell your current house. This is our first go round with that, and it sucks. Lets just say last night I painted four doors. It was hypnotizing. I wanted to keep going. More doors, more doors. My husband had to stop me. Shannon, put the paint brush down.
Right now there are two different handymen working outside. A storage unit will arrive this weekend. And then the house goes on the market next Wednesday. The same day we leave for Disney World.
This weekend, I will be hosting a baby shower for my sister on Saturday. And then on Sunday a first birthday party for Colin (holy crap, how did that come so quickly). I'd like to make a slideshow montage for him, as I did my two other children, in time for the party. My friend from Australia will also be visiting, so I will take her out for a night on the town on Friday.
I have two different sets of papers to grade for the class that I teach. And a blog that I like to write.
All of these are good things. I mean ALL are good things. So this is not a woah is me. It's just a, I am in the middle of a whirlwind and just trying to get by.
Things that have gone to the wayside: Showering. Screen time limitations. Returning phone calls and emails (sorry about that). Playdate reciprocation. Halloween candy regulation. Blogging. Thank you cards. Getting gas.

Someday soon I will write eloquently and deeply and wittily.
Just not today.
