good and bad: this week so far

Inspired by Janet’s Love and Hate Fridays.

good: Maggie slept till 9:30 yesterday!

bad: Maggie woke up at 6am this morning.

good: I got a lot of work done in the morning because she took a very early nap (8:30!!!), so we were able to take the afternoon off and have some fun.

bad: I found out today that the 3-in-1 convertible crib we bought her when I was pregnant has been discontinued, so we cannot purchase the conversion kit. I am REALLY MAD that we didn’t order the parts back then (my only excuse is that I was as big as a house and could think of nothing except for ice cream and getting that baby OUT.)

good: We had lunch with Dan and his work friends.

bad: Maggie got macaroni and cheese all over her shirt (not a REALLY bad thing, but definitely not a good one)

good: We visited a friend of mine (an old co-worker) I hadn’t seen in a while.

bad: She’s going through a divorce with 2 kids and it’s just a crappy, crappy situation.

good: Our fridge is now stocked with food from the grocery store.

bad: Maggie was soooo tired at the store and almost fell asleep a few times.

good: She took a 2nd nap when we got home.

bad: That nap lasted until 5:30, which pushed her bedtime back by an hour. That’s a BIG HOUR IN OUR LIVES.

good: Maggie played outside with Dan after dinner while I cleaned up and then caught up on some work (See above, Taking The Afternoon Off!) At one point, she pulled her stroller out and tried climbing in it- a sign that apparently meant Hey Dad! Let’s go for a walk! So they did.

bad: My house is piled in clutter, and my cleaning lady is coming tomorrow. I have to clean up a LOT of crap before I go to bed so the poor woman can actually see the floors and counters to clean them.

good: My cleaning lady is coming tomorrow!! Have I mentioned that I LOVE HER and she’s my new BFF? She has been doing an awesome job. (unlike the last people.)

bad: I have to go to a Real Job tomorrow- my once-per-month contract job. Stupid business casual. I wanna wear my pajamas!

good: We’re finally going to be able to ADD to our savings account this month, rather than SUBTRACT which is what we’ve been doing for the last year in order to pay of our student loans.

bad: I also need to go and pack Maggie’s lunch for daycare tomorrow. Crap.

good: This weekend we’re going on the boat again with Dan’s dad on Saturday and then to a party with some college friends and all of our kids on Sunday. Another busy weekend! But: IT’S A THREE DAY WEEKEND.

bad: It’s only Tuesday and I’m already talking about the weekend.
