Gosh, this month is going by quick!! I’ve got to say, my most favorite part of being a SAHM has been having a schedule. This was something that was lacking when I was working since our schedules were never consistent. Now Nibbler is up most mornings around 6:30a, goes down for a nap from 9a-11a and then for another nap around 2p which lasts until 3/4p and then down for bed by 8, but usually 7/7:30p. It’s nice to know what’s coming next — and although we’ll sometimes fight over naps, I think Nibbler likes having a schedule too.
This week, I was able to see some old friends from high school. The nerdy part of me enjoyed listening to my friend speak of her job as a scientist testing for fungus in soil (a bad kind) and how they’ve developed a new kind that takes over the evil fungus. Yes, I’m a total neeeeerrrd! I’d totally take up a career in science if it wasn’t for that pesky math issue. I’m so horrible at that subject!! I also thought it was pretty bad a$$ she could identify all the weeds in our overgrown yard. We need a day we’re not running around to have someone watch Nibbler so we can clean up our yard. It’s shameful, and I’d do it myself but I have no idea what to do with Nibbler while I’m cleaning it up since there’s no fence and we have no play pen for him. I tried sitting him in the stroller once and he strained against the straps and screamed the entire time. Not pleasant. 😦
And…due to that stupid head cold, my immune system got knocked down hard enough for me to get a cold sore that decided it wanted to take over half of my lip. Needless to say, I’ve been a bit of a hermit this week. I’m hoping to remedy that this week since it’s started to heal. They’re just so ugly, I feel like that’s all people see. Yup, I’m irrational.
Nerdy and irrational.
