We’re having a garage sale right now to get rid of the TONS of baby clothes cluttering our house!!! Plus the baby accessories!!!
Today was day one. In preparation of the sale, I ended up staying up until about 5:15 am…. giving me 3 hours of sleep! I started crashing at about 6 PM and here it is now 1 AM and I still have not gone to bed, despite the fact that the sale continues at 9am and (TMI) I totally need a shower tomorrow morning! lol
Today was a good sale day though. Sold a lot of the bigger items, such as bouncer seats, Bumbo, playmat and a bassinet. Plus I finally got rid of some of my maternity pants! Woohoo! lol
OK. Time to hit the hay. No more excuses! (And really, what was I thinking finishing off that can of Diet Coke at 9 PM? It wasn’t even the Caffeine Free kind!!!!)
Oh yeah, I also sold a few of the hair bows I make ( https://www.facebook.com/EnchantingElegance ) and possibly have a new business prospect in my future. Not to mention, I met some “new” neighbors (I say new because I’ve never met them, even though I’ve lived here almost 3 years and they in their house for nearly 6 and are literally, across the street and like, 3 houses down!!! PLUS they have a 5 year old little girl who can become Allison’s new BFF!!!)
OK, but now really, I need to get to bed. The way I’m going The Husband is going to get home from work and murder me for still being up. (He’s bringing me home a McChicken since he ate the one I left in the fridge for today and told me if I’m still up when he gets home he’s not giving it to me!!! lol)

Today I made meatloaf and it was edible!!!
I’m swamped right now with my publishing company tasks (currently editing a book, not my typical job!) and I’ve got a garage sale coming up on Thursday so we’re trying to get everything ready for that as well.
I was just so proud of my edible (and pretty good if I do say so myself!) meatloaf that I had to stop in and brag. 😉 I’ll post about it later, I’ve got some pix and I’ll share the recipe!

There’s that moment when you wake up from a nap, not realizing you fell asleep, and you’re not sure if it’s 11 am or 11 pm… and you’re wondering why you’re slept all night in your jeans…. and your arm is asleep from the child sleeping on it…. and then it occurs to you, you only rested your eyes “for a moment” and that turned into a 4 hour nap and you’ve just screwed yourself out of a decent nights sleep…. and that’s how you find yourself up at 1am watching a NOVA special on Extreme Cave Diving.
That’s my night so far. Oh, and The Husband is out of town until late Sunday, he’s on his annual guys weekend fishing trip, leaving me home alone with both girls. How does that work? I went through pregnancy, labor & delivery, and spend about 98% of my time with these kids, yet he gets the vacation? I demand a recount! Er…. or something…. Give me a break, it’s late! To be honest, one of the other guys on the fishing trip has a wife who is my good friend, we’ve been meaning to go get hour long massages (STILL not a weekend trip away from everything though!!!) but I keep forgetting to make the appointment. It’s all my fault. Meh….. I should get some sleep soon. And un-pause my NOVA special on Extreme Cave Diving so that it ends sometime tonight :p
