I’m in a total post vacation FUNK. The last few days I’ve felt like I’m moving in slow motion! I am the worst at unpacking. Because of my perfectionist nature, something that should take a couple of hours ends up taking a week. I start to put my make-up back in my bathroom drawer and realize the drawer organizers could use a wipe down. Next thing you know I’ve torn apart all of my bathroom cupboards and drawers. Bathroom looks like a bomb went off. I start to put Addison’s p.j’s back in her drawer and think hmmm…might make more sense if I had the girls pajama’s in the same drawer in Ellie’s room since I always take them to her room after bath time. Next thing you know the girls’ clothes are everywhere and I’m completely re-organizing closets. Then of course life is busy and we’ve got places we need to constantly be so instead of getting things put away and finished, all I’ve been doing is creating messes and more work for myself. What’s wrong with me??? It’s a problem. Admitting it is the first step…right?
In other news, Ellie has been obsessed with “hot lava and bears” lately. Where she came up with this combo I’ll never know, but several times a day we all have to run and hide because of the hot lava and bears that are going to get us. While we hide, her imagination runs wild as she explains the danger that surrounds us all. Poor Addison’s eyes are wide as saucers as she clings to her blankie and repeats “hot lava coming mommy…bears coming mommy!” I think she actually believes everything Ellie says. It’s now the norm for Kenny to expect at least a twenty minute hide-out with the girls each night after work. He’s learned to take reading material with him. All in a day!
