My dirty laundry

Remember when I said I would post more than just my midweek confessions? Apparently I lied. For now, until the house is unpacked, the old house is fully cleaned and we have our new tenants moved in, my occasional bullet point blogging will have to suffice! Linking up with E, myself and I again!

1. I didn't wash Daniel's dress shirts this week. Instead, I took them out of the suitcase, rubbed dryers sheets on them and repacked them. Daniel, if you're reading this, I'm sorry! I knew I wouldn't have time to iron them.

2. Parker colored, glittered and feathered red cardinal birds during craft time at preschool. I asked him what it was expecting to hear "a bird" or maybe surprise me with "a cardinal." instead he replied "an angry bird. Die pigs!"

3. A certain someone who shall remain nameless or he/she would absolutely freak if I spilled who it was all over the internet accidentally dropped the f bomb this week in front of Parker when he/she dropped something. This morning, Parker dropped buzz off the high chair and exclaimed "oh f*," ah! To be fair to aforementioned individual, while in the process of moving/ dealing with time Warner cable, Parker has probably learned every curse word in the book but has only chosen to use the very classiest one. Ugh! I totally felt like Cam from modern family. Kinda hard not to laugh but you know you're not supposed to!

4. I haven't cooked a real meal in over 2 weeks. The only thing that has been on my stove is cars Mac n cheese. The drive thru people within 5 miles of my house should all know me by now. I'm actually looking forward to cooking a good family meal and settling down next week once the tenants move in, I don't have multiple contractors at my house every day and Daniel is home to enjoy it!

That's it for this week's addition of "well at least I don't do that!" Admit, you thought it! Your turn! Spill the beans!

Midweek Confessions

Lately this blog has just been me spilling my secrets with E, Myself and I's midweek confession linkup but I promise after the move we'll be back in blogging business! Until then, we're in survival mode around here!

1. I fed the kids dinner while in the bath tub tonight. It was actually really efficient. I had JUST cleaned their high chairs, they're MESSY eaters and they love the tub so it worked out PERFECT!

2. I can't remember the last time I had "me" time. SO for 20 minutes today I let Parker play angry birds on the iPad (which he calls his Zegra? ... so cute!) and Avery whined played on the floor while I turned my back to the growing pile of boxes in my den and read a good 'ol gossip magazine my dad gifted me today! (longest run on sentence ever!)

3. My den is looking more like an episode of Hoarder's by the day. I know we're moving and this is just temporary but it's STRESSING ME OUT! My car may get the boot to the driveway so the things that were once in the attic and are now in my living room can be relocated to the garage. 

4. The kids and I went grocery shopping today. This week's meal plan includes the word "Stouffer's" way too many times. 

5. Parker peed through his diaper 2 nights ago. I washed his sheets but then noticed his quilt also needed a run through the wash and didn't get everything back on his bed in time tonight SO... he's "camping" with a sleeping bag as a comforter.

What are your confessions? Air em out at E, Myself and I if you blog and if not, comment here or on my FB wall! :) It's SOOOO therapeutic!

Midweek Confession Time!

I'm linking up with E, Myself and I again to air out my dirty laundry. 

1. I have WAY more pictures of Avery than I do Parker and I feel guilty about it. When I bring out the camera she smiles.... He runs screaming "NO!" The only exception is if he's strapped into his highchair and occupied with food. 

2. I have 40+ mini cupcakes sitting on my counter. I asked Parker what he wanted for a snack. He said "cupcakes." That sounded like a FABULOUS idea. We each ate one.... 40 something more to go. My waistline wishes I'd given him an apple instead!

3. I signed Parker up for 3 day preschool starting in the fall and I feel guilty about having him in school so many days at age 3 1/2. He currently goes 2 days a week. It's so counter-intuitive to send your child to be watched by someone else when you're a "stay at home mom."

4. I got a mom cut. It's a happy/sad. It's WAY more manageable as my long hair took 45 minutes to wash, dry and hot roll BUT... it was MY hair. The hair I grew back after cancer took it. The hair that I loved because it was long and was SO beautiful rolled. (I get to rave about my hair being so pretty because I went through ALL of the awful, awkward stages to grow it back.... it's like an unwritten rule) I just didn't have time to do it everyday and then it looked terrible. SO... until I have time to do it again.... mom cut it is.

5. I bought my dog, Moses, doggie diapers. Sometimes he pees on things even if I've just let him out and I'm not about to let him do that in our new house.  Here's the best part of this confession... I bought him fashion ones... I didn't even read about how functional they are. He may be wearing a diaper, but at least its made of designer fabric. right?

6. I got some Christmas money and I really want this:
How awesome would a Roomba be?! I don't know if they actually work but anything that cleans for me sounds like an EXCELLENT use of my Christmas money! Anyone have one? 

What are your midweek confessions?
UPDATE on last week's confessions: I have officially shaved my legs.
