Blow me away

I think the title should be more like Calgon take me away, but whatever.

The baby isn't sleeping longer than 15 minutes at a time without me having to pick him up, Samantha isn't wanting to take her naps (we'll see how this afternoon goes), and my house is a disaster! I swear, I don't know why it looks so dang junky. I would post a picture, but I am too embarrased to show the disaster area.

I keep up with the dishes by putting them in the dishwasher, Katelyn & Doug usually will help unload them. I vacuum at least once a day, if not twice. I think the worse part to the house 'feeling' and looking like a pigsty is all the baby toys lying around. I seriously hope Samantha picks up on the 'time to pick up the toys' deal.

I got a little more sleep last night, but still feel cranky as all get out. It's funny that being the mom you have to give up more of your sleep time. At least that's what I am experiencing here. It doesn't matter that I am up for 14-16 hours or more a day tending to the house and children, just because Doug holds a regular job means he gets more sleep time. Doesn't seem fair to me.... but if he just lays there in the damn bed and refuses to get up, what choice do I have in the matter? Listen to my children scream and cry, or get up and take care of them? Oy!

Switching to cuteness, look at Sam... she was posing like The Little Mermaid this morning on her little ride on toy.

I am wanting to make some thank you cards for stuff that I have received from after Cam was born but, I don't know how to go about making them! I should ask the peas for help, but can't bring myself to admit defeat yet from searching on google. If you happen to know of a tutorial for a first time card maker, (specifics in card sizes, how to cut it, etc) could you please pass that info along to me? I'm off to see if I can't get this house looking good again.


  1. did you get card help? the easiest way to make them is to buy invitation size envelopes at walmart or the office store, they take 1/2 sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper. so, cut it 5 1/2 by 8. folded in half, it fits the envelope. and at that size, its just right for a thank you, because there is enough room to write, but not too much. and a 4x6 picture will fit in with a little trimming.

  2. Hang in there! The sleep deprivation is the absolute worst thing about a new baby. And everything else is just fabulous! Enjoy (and psstt sometimes I hit my dh to wake him up and make him change the diaper before I feed Cooper :) )


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment, it warms my heart. I hope you have a blessed day. Crafty hugs, Leah
