Yesterday, I shared a little introduction or possibly a re-introduction if you've been reading here a while. To be honest, I've shared 10 Things and 10 Things that make me happy-Part 1 and Part 2 in other blog posts. But today, I'm sharing more! These are
random facts, things happening at our house now and other random thoughts I'm having at the moment.
I had every intention of including facts and once I started typing...random thoughts were popping out. Instead this post became "Random Thoughts In My Head". :)
*Right now our house is in SHAMBLES. Seriously, we're a hot mess over here. You know how your house can get to the point of everything needing to be taken out of closets, drawers, cabinets, and cleaned out, reorganized, and purged? I've been fighting the urge to do this for so many reasons, but I finally decided NOW is the time! So we have piles...to be donated, to take to the dump, to be given to friends. I mean piles are everywhere. We still have a long way to go, but I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Granted, it's WAY down there but I can see it. ;)
*Because of the state of our house right now, it's safe to say-I'm a messy non-hoarder, but Tab is a clean hoarder. He wants to keep it all and I'm throwing everything out. But...if you looked at our closet, you'd definitely call him the tidy one.
*I must add I do hoard one thing...BOOKS. If someone's going to offer a book for me to read, I'm going to take it! I might get to it read it until 2021, but I'll take it!
*We've entered the stage at our house where every kid can shower/bathe himself/herself. Let me tell you...it's amazing! Might be my favorite milestone we've hit so far.
*With that said, there's always the question..."how clean are they getting"? Right? Bowen is who I'm worried about the most and thankfully, he errs on the side of using too much soap. (Which is where I'd prefer him to err if I had to choose.) So I'm not too worried. He walks downstairs and everyone can smell his watermelon soap the second his foot touches the bottom stair.
*I'm not sure if this is a normal thing or not but we wear pajamas once around here and then they all get washed. What do you guys do at your house? Yes, my kids shower nightly so the pajamas are clean, they on clean sheets, but we get a new fresh pair every night. Me included. Even on trips...I pack enough for us all to have a clean pair every night. My mom was visiting one time and mentioned my laundry pile being a lot less if we wore the same pair of pajamas two nights before washing. There's just something about being clean and getting in fresh, clean pajamas.
*I feel like I'm pretty patient, loving, and kind 99% of the time (I'm talking about Tab here-if it was the kids I'd continue) but if he has a stomach bug, I want a MASK anytime I'm in the same room. I don't want him to move from one room to another, I only want him to drink out of one cup, touch one remote, etc. I get a little crazy about it...I can mingle with his strep germs, a cold, or some respiratory infection but if he has a stomach bug-I'm out. I'll send supplies under the door.
*What are your thoughts on all those off-the-shoulder tops and dresses this season? They're SO cute! Especially with a ruffle...right? I feel like they're a little much to wear on a day-to-day basis. Perfect for girls' night out or date night, but not the right look for preschool drop off and grocery shopping. But...I feel like there aren't many other shirts out there now that aren't off-the-shoulder. Anyway else having this thought? What are we supposed to wear the other 92% of the week? Where are those tops?
I hope I didn't bore you too much with this big bunch of randomness.
Hope you're having a great Wednesday! XO
Now, it's your turn...what's a random thought you're having right now? :)
