coffee talk... so what's new with you?

Well happy Thursday! Pour your cup and pull up a proverbial chair yeah? 

So what's new with me this month? Well... funny you should ask.
As I mentioned yesterday, our kitchen remodel is finalllly done! And I mean. Wow! The month of March was the month of mayhem as far as our kitchen is concerned and I couldn't love the results more! It was a long time coming and felt like an even longer time happening. I went to a dark place with the final phase. Evil Laurie came out and hung around and she just marinated in all that dust and was quite the miserable lady.... Sorry Matt.

We have Letty's kindergarten registration and orientation today. Pray for me if you are the praying kind. I heard from a neighbor that the parents are questioned by one person while a teacher meets and evaluates Letty. Which I'll be on pins and needles about, wishing I could hear how she's doing. I am not looking forward to it.... And what makes it even worse is that while her elementary school is being rebuilt from the ground up they are temporary relocated to my old middle school. Oh yes, that's right. Our old blue and orange lockers! That building is so ancient and full of adolescent dramatic memories! I might walk in there today and PTSD might kick in. Talk about a mind warp! 

I had still been nursing Dom each evening up until the middle of last month. The more logical part of my brain tried blaming his lack of interest in cow's milk as my reason for continuing but in reality I just was holding on to it for me. The thought of never nursing a baby again is a pretty large pill to swallow.  Jagged large pill if you will (and isn't it ironic? Don't ya think?). With each child I wished success in the nursing game and I finally got there! Fifteen months! But knowing once I quit it will never happen for me again? A heady thing. And hey! If anyone has suggestions for getting a boy to drink his milk I'm all ears. And yes, we have tried the chocolate syrup addition even though I hated the thought. Not another addict please! Also, these cups! My sister found them and they are magic. The only leak when Dom spikes them into our new floors which is such a step up from other leaking cups. If you're kid never treats their cup like a football they would be perfect!

Looking outside at our measly landscaping I see it's time to start plumping up my perennial garden! I plan on getting a few new specimens this week to round it out a bit. A few blanket flowers for sure. Have any perennial suggestions for the out of practice gardener? And we need to order our mulch delivery which is ALWAYS such a good time. 

I am a Snapchat addict (user name: lolsen883). Officially. I love the sneak peak into the lives of fellow snappers. I guess I'm just elevating my stalker status there but it's been fun! And that amazing filter that makes me look like I'm walking around permanently airbrushed? I'll take it.  I'm really loving Elizabeth Minchilli (eminchilli) and being transported to Rome on the daily. All that food too!

David's allergies started back up annnnnd I forgot all about it. The signs were all there. The sniffles. The lack of appetite. The general disagreeable attitude. And so yeah. Need to get back into that habit stat. I'm also wondering if Dominic perhaps will suffer from these as well or if he just has a cold? But I read one cannot put them on allergy meds till they are two? A life sentence of Zyrtec and Flonase... my poor boys.

Anyways... What about you all? What's new with you?

Linking up with Kristen and Gretchen today! Thanks ladies for hosting!
