Rough day

I had big plans for this afternoon. The cable was going to be installed, and I would take the boys to "Little Elvis' new house" (according to Little Elvis) so I could work on finishing up the unpacking and organizing.

My biggest goals were to get the playroom in order and then get all of our clothes in the appropriate closets/drawers.

The cable guy only took 3 hours to show up, and I was still in the midst of an increasingly messy playroom when he arrived.

Little Elvis decided to undo whatever I did. Then, when I would get onto him, he would cry. Lovely. He also decided to climb up on a step ladder and get into a huge cardboard box that Bob put on our sofa.

Baby Plum wasn't happy either. He loves to be held, and that's not very easy to do when I'm attempting to unpack boxes.

Not only that, I'm still in pain. I ended up calling the doctor this afternoon. They were supposed to call in a prescription. They didn't. And when I called the after hours line, I was told to use some OTC thing that has nothing to do with my pain.

But I shouldn't fuss too much. Baby Plum is happily sleeping all snug in his carseat now. Little Elvis didn't fall out of the box on the sofa that he reached by ladder (I was feeding Baby Plum at the time.) And the cable guy came at 3:30, instead of 5. He was also really nice, especially to Little Elvis.

I have high hopes for accomplishments tomorrow morning. The playroom is fairly organized, so I'll let Little Elvis go nuts while I work on getting the huge pile of clothes off our beds and floor.

Baby Plum! WOw! I have so much to get caught up on. Most of all I am happy to find you and yours doing well. A baby! I have been offline so long and am so out of touch. I am very happy for you. I hope your pain subsides and you get some answers.

I know you are excited, but take it easy! You don't want to be laid up in your new house - watching packed boxes and being unable to open them will drive you more crazy. Enjoy those boys!! (BTW - you are right about the cheeks on Baby Plum - sooo cute!!)

Unpacking is such a process, and not one made easier with little ones under foot. Hope you start feeling better and be sure to give yourself a break when you need it.

You should try using the pattern like I did. You make a bag out of muslin and then a pillow case. That way you could either wash or make a new cover! Love the idea of putting in mint! And thank you for the ebooks! I've been meaning to send you an email, but I'm kind of behind :)
