Random Ramblings

Has anyone else ever been sore from a day of cleaning? No? Just me? That probably just goes to show how incredibly out of shape I am because after a weekend of mopping floors, scrubbing tile grout and deep cleaning our kitchen I am simply SORE. Like, why bother with a gym membership when you can just go to town with the Clorox and some rags?!

Needless to say, my weekend didn't consist of much else. Our house was just due for some good deep-cleaning and Jared and I tackled a lot of it together. I probably shouldn't admit it, but multiple trips were made to both Walmart and Lowes for supplies we needed. Let me repeat, multiple times. Multiple times meaning the people at Lowes were probably beginning to wonder what kind of garbage dump we were cleaning that required this many things. But since one of us was always elbows deep in bleach and/or taking care of T, the other one would run out and grab something only to realize we were out of something else by the time we got back. 

Life with a kid vs life pre-kid sure looks different. Some days I really miss being able to just hop in the car on a whim and go do whatever we want. I miss being able to blast my music as loud as I want while cleaning but hello, naptime is sacred and we do not disrupt a good nap. Speaking of good naps... there haven't been many of those lately because #teething. Are you guys tired of me talking about my kid and his teeth yet? Because I'm tired of it, but it's no joke.

Ya know what else looks different? Not working for a football team anymore. Usually every January I'm heartbroken over how many hours I put in only to have my team lose in the first round of the playoffs. At least, that's what happened 6 of the 7 season I worked there. This year, my Bengals were so terrible it was easy to not have my hopes crushed in the post-season. As of right now, I'm rooting for a Patriots v. Falcons SuperBowl though!

One last thing before I end this random, rambling of a post....Reminder to all that you can still enter our giveaway for an Erin Condren planner through tonight. Winner will be announced tomorrow :)

  1. I was just telling someone this weekend that Connor stopped napping at 2 years 4 months. That's really early but once he dropped the pacifier naps went too. Sleep has never been his strong suite. But T will get the hang of things and get back to be a solid napper.

  2. I get sore ALL the time from cleaning! I'll wake up and be so confused about what workout I did and then think, oh...I didn't.

  3. We tried the Clorox bleach thing and it worked! I didn't scrub as much as you did but it got enough off. Yay!

  4. I swear we always have to make multiple trips to Lowe's/Home Depot when we're doing house stuff! Because making a list and buying everything in one trip would be too simple right?! We hate ourselves every time we do it, lol!

  7. Teething is hard on everyone!! Don't worry, T will return to his usual sleeping habits when his little gums feel better. Hooray for a productive weekend.

  12. I ordered a neutral Erin Condren this year! I wasn't sure how I'd like the black and white since I'm used to the bright colors. But I have to say, I kinda love it! :)

  13. I'd rather clean than go to the gym...which goes to show how much I hate the gym! :) Hope the teething lets up soon!

  14. Cleaning is a lot more fun when you're both doing it--we occasionally have Fridays or Saturdays like that--Angel working on the cleaning tasks he's best at, and me working on mine. The feeling of accomplishment afterwards is real!

  15. You can come clean my house for a workout any time you want, LOL! I can relate to needing to deep clean. We did that right after Christmas and it felt SO GOOD!

  16. It's a good clean when you wind up sore the next day ;) I miss the spontaneity of non-kid life but I was never a super spontaneous person anyway haha.

  17. I'm rooting for the Pack like a good wife :) That game last week was super exciting at the end.

  18. Oh girl, I feel your pain about football. Not only are my Lions out, but my Spartans had an awful year. I did come in 3rd place in my fantasy league though. Also, multiple trips to HD or Lowes always happen when we start any home project... always...
