It feels good to accomplish something

This was a good weekend in that we got a lot of little things accomplished and one major project completed.  Nightingale's parents are visiting for Easter and the Adamas are joining the Tuesday there after so there will be lots of people freeloading off my wifi coming in and out of House Icarus.

When you have kids you essentially have three buckets of stuff: 

  • clothes/toys they are presently using
  • clothes/toys they cannot use now but will someday
  • clothes/toys they no longer use/outgrow

For the last few months, our basement was a children's toy graveyard. The only opportune times to do projects like sort through the toys in the basement is when Boris and Natasha are napping.  Most weekends are spent grocery shopping one day and cooking meals for the week the other. So every weekend this project got pushed off because of time constraints.  Luckily, with the Adamas and Cartwrights both being in our home at the same time, and the likelihood that someone might need to hang out or even sleep in the basement, this project finally got greenlighted.

I'm trying to keep my expectations low for this upcoming visit from the extended family.  In my mind, I think I'm going to get a break from the SAHD thing.  But in reality, it's just gonna be a lot of work and my kids might still want me to hold them 24/7.   I'm hoping the weather is decent enough that we can all get out of the house instead of sit around and just watch TV or read our iPads. 

Get use to it: It's all about us
