love: my new house. Seriously. I apologize if I’m getting annoying with the incessant talk about it. But I can’t help myself.
hate: unpacking. I thought it would be more fun than packing, because we’d be in The New Awesome House and I wouldn’t care. But… nope. Sorry. Unpacking sucks just as much.
love: the way Maggie tells everyone she sees about her ‘new pink room’ and when we pull into our street, she points excitedly at our house and says ‘That’s Maggie’s new house!’
hate: that the craziness of the past month has led to me not working out AT ALL (other than a few walks here and there) and also eating like a pig, which of course has led to a few extra pounds. My favorite shorts were TOUGH TO BUTTON TODAY. Unacceptable.
love: ice cream. Which is probably the reason for that hatred mentioned above. hm…
hate: that we were dumb and thought we had a gas dryer, when in fact we have an ELECTRIC ONE. And no electric hookup in the new house. DUH. And it was going to be majorly expensive/pain in the butt to have a new line installed (my uncle came, saw, and said ‘um no.’) So I’ve been doing laundry at my parents’ house all week.
(In our defense, we USED TO have a gas dryer, and then our cats broke it. We must have decided to switch to electric for whatever reason and totally forgot about it until Dan went to disconnect it for the move and was all UM. THAT WAS EASY. *unplug*)
love: that I’m getting my shiny fancy new washer & dryer delivered tomorrow! And also that my mom folded the laundry I left at her house this week. I love her.
hate: that summer is almost over. END OF AUGUST ALREADY???! WTH.
love: that Maggie asked to go on the potty this morning. She didn’t actually DO anything on the potty (besides read a book and also tear off little tiny strips of toilet paper to ‘wipe’ herself, HOW ON EARTH that can be cute, I don’t know, but it totally was.) but she ASKED and was EXCITED ABOUT IT, and that’s all that matters. I’m thinking it has something to do with the Latina Whore (aka Dora, thanks to BurghBaby) potty seat we got for the big toilet in her new bathroom. But hey, whatever gets my kid out of diapers, right?
hate: that I forgot to get my lip waxed the last time I got my haircut. I noticed it in the sunshine today riding in the car with my mom and OMG. I HAVE A ‘STACHE. I am gross and disgusting.
hate: when people we love get sick. Like, really sick. And when they live far away.
hate: that she lost her job over it all. boo to that!
love: that we have nothing planned for this weekend at all. LOVE A FREE SCHEDULE!
hate: UNPACKING. whoops! Guess we do have plans for the weekend…
What are you loving & hating right now?
