Catching you up on this and that,
scattered with random Christmas tree farm pictures from yesterday.
- So, I’m going to be honest with you now.
This transition/move has been a LOT harder than I expected it to be. I don’t really like to talk about it much, because I don’t want any “I told you so” feelings (still think it was the best decision, overall) and…well.. I’m prideful.
But seriously, ouch. It has been a bummer.
I forgot that I don’t actually like change. At all. (whoops!)
Poor Brian has had to put up with a lot of sad, mopey, crazy Caitlin.
Including outburst like, “I’m so lonely! I just need to go shopping by myself for a while!” Which, hello, doesn’t make much sense.
We had a talk last night which concluded that I should figure out what would make me happy and do it. (Eat it?)
So, I have some thinking to do about that.
- I am meeting some new people tomorrow. I joined an online Moms of Northern New Jersey group, and we are having a get together at some lady’s house.
It totally feels like a first date.
What do I wear?
Does this mean I have to blow dry my hair?
How many fat jokes can I use?
Things I haven’t worried about in a while.
(note: Brian is not really chopping down that tree. It is already cut and tied to a pole. He is faking it for the kids…)
(Aren’t we all? Some of the time?)
- It is snowing a little outside today. Not sticking, just periodic showers of the big fluffy flakes.
This is how most of our day’s conversation has gone:
ME: “Joseph, look at the snow!”
JOSEPH: “Where is the snow?”
ME: “Right there! Look outside!”
JOSEPH: “Look at all the white fuzzies!”
ME: “Yes, that’s the snow!”
JOSEPH: “Where is the snow”
- Isaac let go of the coffee table and took a step to the couch today.
I thought about kicking him down…but that seemed like a bad example.
- Overheard yesterday:
“And then, Joker says, ‘Where is baby Jesus?! I can’t find him!’ and then her finds her next to my room…”
Joseph is a little confused about some things.
- Our landlords came over unexpectedly yesterday.
The apartment was SUPER clean, and Joseph was very nicely playing with his toy nativity scene.
And when they left he said “Have a Merry Christmas Time!”
- This morning, Brian woke me up and said, “Hey sweetie, I have no clean black work socks!”
To which I replied, “Maybe if you are a good boy, Santa will bring you some more work socks for Christmas so that you don’t always run out!”
To which HE replied, “I just wish Santa would do some laundry once in a while!”
Now, you may say, touché Brian, and pat him on the back.
But, I got to roll over and go back to sleep.
While he had to continue getting ready for work (with no black work socks).
So, who is the real winner here?
