Well, Laptop Destruction 2008 disrupted Trash Terminating Thursday in a major way.
Which is unfortunate because I was feeling majorly good about things and I don't want to blame little kid but there is no one else to blame. He took the wind right out of my sails.
But I am forgiving him, because that is what mothers do, even when they are still wondering what the hell that was all about and would like to see some proper remorse or guilt or SOMETHING. Whatever.
I did do a ton more to Big Kid's room, including re-arranging his furniture, hanging up 2 storage things, doing the top of his closet and assembling an Ikea box (major confidence builder right there, I was feeling very certain that power tools were within my very near future once I had accomplished that so easily).
I also did some general around the house stuff. So all in all, a success. Especially considering "the circumstances".
Tomorrow is Photography & Family Time Friday. Now, I was thinking that on Fridays I would teach you all something photography related (as well as doing my assignment) but maybe you should assign something else to yourselves too.
Like maybe For Me & Family Time Friday? You could make sure you read a magazine, paint your toe nails, take a bath, do a craft...something off of the "you" to do list.
Or Friendship & Family Time Friday? Catch up on your emails, friend calls, make a play date?
I don't know, we'll need to brainstorm on that one. But I think Fridays are going to rock. I'm pretty excited about Suds It Up Saturday too. Due to popular demand, I'm thinking it probably should include beer. Or wine (that ruins the 'suds' thing, but oh well.) Cleaning a bathroom is way more enjoyable if there is drinking involved.
Okay, tomorrow I'll deal with my client's shoot from Monday (haven't even looked at it...haven't quite recovered) and order the pics from the V-day play date to give to the moms. Bonus points for watching my Adobe Lightroom DVD.
Also, I'll take the boys outside and play Jenga with Big Kid. That won't be so bad. That's all very do-able. Barring any disasters.
But there will be no disasters because starting tomorrow, I'm in charge around here. I am. I really, really am.
Baby Bootcamp starts tomorrow.
