Catching Up + Theme Thursday

Things around here have been a bit busy this week- my aunt is in town and has visited a few times, and we’ve got some serious demo work happening in the basement right now. I’ll try and get a house update post going soon, since I realize it’s been forever since I’ve written about it. I’m trying to use today as a “catch-up” day: cleaning, dishes, laundry, emails, blogging, etc.  God, in His infinite mercy, is allowing both girls to sleep at the moment so I can get a couple of things done. (Since I’m using that precious time at the computer, it’s obvious that my priorities are very much in order.) I’m still relearning how to do things one-handed while holding a baby, so everything takes longer than I think it should. We did make it to my local mom’s group this morning only a few minutes late, so that’s something, I guess.

Perfecting the balancing act between baby, keeping the pacifier in, and the computer on my lap so I can type isn’t a small feat.

And now the baby is fussing (please please please God don’t let naptime be over!) and I just heard the dryer quit, which means the clothes that have been in there for three days are done fluffing (don’t pretend you haven’t done the same), so I guess this post will be a short one. Time to tackle this pile:

I wish this was all of the laundry I have to do

which I can’t procrastinate any longer. Unfortunately, my washing machine is old and small (no such thing as an extra large load), and with the rate that Sophie goes through her burp cloths and Grace gets marker all over her clothes, I figure I have roughly a million little loads to go before I get close to catching up on laundry.

For more piles of things that I hope are better than my dirty laundry, go see Cari’s link-up.

    I love that first picture! Call it a “love pile” and you’re a winner.
    And ugh on the laundry. I’m looking at a similar pile to my left, but I’d much rather pretend like I don’t see it.

    Thanks for linking up!

      I second this! First photo = love pile = awesomeness 🙂

      Also, I find myself continually amazed at the creativity inspired by trying to deal with my computer and infant at the same time (not always a success, of course)!

    Clean Laundry means the icky part is over. What are the basement plans? Something has got to be done about the set of Silence of the Lambs that is in my cellar.

    We fluff every load when we put the next one in the wash…no shame! Love to you and baby 🙂

    Your picture with the baby is soooooo sweet. Brings back all kinds of memories, all of the good kind.
