- I vacuum everyday. Sounds crazy, but every time I do, the vacuum hose sounds like a rainstick so the floors must need it. Vacuuming relaxes me. The first few months with a newborn, I would vacuum sometimes twice a day because Bugs loved the sound it made. Vacuuming is also a game. I like the lines to go the same way. I hate corners because that throws it all off! I’ve learned to start from the farthest point in the room and work your way backwards towards the door to avoid footprints on the carpet.
- My “temperature control” in the vehicle is out of control. Even I admit that. On our way to meeting I purposely counted how many times I had to adjust the temperature. I didn’t bother after counting 7 times. The husband is pretty nice about it especially since we don’t have separate driver/passenger temp controls. I notice though, sometimes he’ll be wearing a jacket and then he will take it off only to put it back on 10 minutes later. If it’s too hot in the car, I feel like I am instantly suffocating. If it’s too cold, I will die instantly of hypothermia. There is never a good temperature for the car…. or only when I’m in it I guess.
- Every day I drink a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. First off, I like the taste. I make that same face as when a baby licks a lemon. Second, I like to think that it’s healthy. I’ve read articles before about it being healthy and aiding digestion and speeding up your metabolism. Not sure if that is accurate or not. I just do it. My parents always bring a bottle of vinegar with them when they travel internationally. Now we do the same. If you have an upset stomach or you think you are going to toss your cookies, think about drinking a tablespoon of vinegar. It helps settle things down there. That is a fact.
- I have a love/hate relationship with my dog these days. For those of you who know me know that I have a huge heart for animals. I am constantly wanting to rescue wandering animals on the street or in shelters. As a matter of fact, I rescued my dog several years ago. Lately though, it has crossed my mind to put a
FREE signFOR SALE sign on my dog. He has been a very naughty boy since Bugs has been around. We ended up buying a dog kennel. Don’t worry… he only has to be in there when Cody and I are not home so he doesn’t “mess” in the garage. Otherwise, he can roam the house and go where he pleases. And even though I threaten him, I don’t think I’d ever have the heart to part with the old man. He deserves his last years to be good years.
- I love being a SAHM. The first few months, I wouldn’t be caught dead saying that. I had a good job at the bank. I climbed the ladder. I succeeded at what I did there. Do I miss it? No. This job as a SAHM is more rewarding and challenging. Is it easy? No. Some days I want to pull my hair out, and when I hear the garage door go up, I’m actually standing in the garage waiting for Cody to exit the vehicle. Most days though, my heart is about to explode with love and happiness. It’s also fun and interesting to observe the neighborhood when everyone is at work and the kids are at school. Everything is so quiet and still.
- I love Friday nights. You really have no idea. You see, every Saturday I get to sleep in. I don’t take sleeping in lightly either. Two Saturdays ago, I slept till 10:30. Ok…. it was a little strange waking up to only having half the day left to exist, but it felt so good! Last Saturday I slept till 8 and then remained laying in bed a while longer. Cody and I worked out a wonderful deal a few months back. I sleep in on Saturdays and he sleeps in on Sundays. It’s a win-win situation. Our “out west” Sunday morning mtg doesn’t start till 10:30 and we live close so he gets some good ZZzz’s in too.
- I sleep with a large fleece blanket wrapped around my neck every single night. Don’t ask why because I don’t have an answer. It’s just super comfy. To add to the sleeping routine, the fan needs to be on high. Mostly to mask the sound of a huffing puffing beast in the room. To clarify, I’m speaking of my dog… not the husband. Also, the bedroom door needs to remain open for airflow. Airflow is important or else I will die instantly of suffocation. (a little dramatic maybe 🙂 )
- If I could, I would live in yoga pants and tennis shoes. I don’t know why, but athletic clothes are the comfiest to me.
Enough said already! Hope everyone had a nice weekend!
