you got your pit. you got your peak.

It's Friday! And even though that doesn't hold as much joy as it once did I still figure it's kind of a good thing. So does she. Anything for more time with her daddy.

So I will just jump right in here with the pits. Dun dun dunnnn.

- The rashes that have been popping up on Letty's cheeks and neck... Combine that with the cold symptoms and slight fever and I'm pretty sure that's Fifth's Disease. Which is basically just a term to scare the hell out of you. From my extensive limited research it really is not a huge deal unless you are pregnant. So. Watch out incubating ladies. My kids are diseased nasty little things. Isn't self diagnosing fun??

- Boxes. Packing them. Loading them up with stuff. Picking them up and putting them down. Cleaning everything really well.... the shame that accompanies such an act when I realize that maybe I haven't cleaned a particular item in the seven years I've owned it. Maybe.

- Snow days! You know me and my days with my neighbors. We crafted... and we took the kids outside.... and there was lots of talking. Andddd it might have been our last one. Good thing there were two of them this week. And we tried not to think about that aforementioned fact.

- Trifecta is as follows: David is napping for a solid quiet three hours. That's number one. Letter B is that Letteria is playing silently putting together puzzles, which, if I may say so myself, she is a freaking genius at. You've gotta give me that seeing as she thinks every color is blue. Every one. Anyways, Roman Numeral iii: COFFEE. Second or third cup of the day I don't discriminate. It's pretty much my perfect afternoon.  

- Figuratively putting up that "sold" sign (we don't have an actual sign and no, I don't know why). I realize we were a bit lucky in this market etc. etc. but September - January seemed like a long enough time to me. Patience is a virtue I lack in spades. Is that even a saying? I shall make it mine. And it shall be my squishy. Look at all our lovely plowed snow and our empty recycle bin! I just looked at it from the warmth of our dining room. I had a passing thought something along the lines of oh Laur you should go out there and get that and then I just went on living my life.

- Long naps. Wait did I already say that? Yes. Those things. And yesterday Letty was in a particularly good mood so that was a huge peak because she's been a bit prickly this week and I missed my sweet little girl. I say sweet loosely. A mom has to have some hope.


Linking up again today with That's What She Read and TOATS. Have a great weekend!



  1. so many good things look at you go :) also - boxes and the packing of them is the pit of anyone's week. awful times a million.

  2. Great picture of your coffee mug with Letty faded in the background. Cool :)

  3. Can I start with - how cute are those blue walls? And then I will continue onto sleeping children are very cute. Then I will mention, wow, that is a shit load of snow outside your house. I really can't imagine living with that much snow. I agree with Kerri that packing is poo. And also with Holly, that photo is great.
    Kind regards,

  4. Oh I remember the days when my kids took long naps...I miss them..the naps not my kids seeing as how they don't nap they never give me a chance to miss them! haha

  5. you're kids are too cute for words! My kids don't nap anymore (wah!) but I still enforce quiet time with a giant mean voice so I can have some peace with my coffee! :) Thanks for linking up!

  6. I totally self-diagnose and need to stop that practice asap....just makes me worry even more. And the boxes, I think that should be a peak, because it looks like you have loads packed already! However, I am with ya because I'm not even sure how I'm going to handle the mess I'm bound to find behind my dresser, fridge, washer/dryer, etc...gross

    Three hour naps? Aren't those the best? And such a surprise when they happen. I wish they would tell us before they went down that it was going to be a long one so I could plan to fit in a massage or something else, you know? But the extra time scanning blogs, pinterest and the likes is kind of awesome too.

    And the recycle bini? Just leave that out there - your husband is outside already so he can just grab it on his way back in the house after work, right? =)


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
