I got my hair trimmed on Friday night. It is really long right now, to the bottom of my first roll (where my waist should be!), and since I have been swimming so much it is getting dry and tangled. So I decided to get a trim and to get my bangs cut. The hair salon is in the mall. When I was done and walking to my car, I walked past Old Navy. Hmmmm. I wonder what size I am now? The shirt I was wearing was ridiculously baggy. I looked like a slob. So I innocently go in. I find a couple of pull over sweaters on sale. Almost all the clothes in there were summer clothes... and the winter clothes were on sale. Did I miss a season? Cause I thought it was still 40* outside? I ended up buying two black tops, SIZE LARGE! Whoo hoo! Down two sizes!! I also found a jean skirt. I grabbed an 18 and tried it on. It was a little too big, so I tried on a 16, and it fit!! A little snug, but it will be perfect in a couple weeks. Down two skirt sizes too! I spent $54 there. I was feeling really guilty. I prayed on the way home there would be a check in the mail. I opened the mail box, and... drum roll please....... there was a card from my Dad! He does not usually send a card with out money. He sent me $50 for Valentines Day! How sweet. Just the right amount to pay for the clothes I bought. yay.
Page 11 Chronicles of A Curvy Housewife Day 4 July 23, 2009 After we all woke up this morning and I fed the boys and myself I managed to do the boys' laundry....washed, dried, folded and put away! Hooray! I tried to tidy up the house this morning after that, just to have Shane come behind me and un-do everything I did. I put all his blocks away, then go to fold the blankets on the couch. I hear all the big Lego blocks I just put away being thrown out of the toy chest one by one hitting the hard wood floors, making a sea of rainbow color blocks all over the house. Then I go to fold some laundry and he pulls the blankets I just folded off the couch and hides under them while laughing trying to entice me to play peek-a-boo. The phone rings, I go answer it, sales call. I come back to find Shane having several of the clean clothes on him trying to get one over his face. finally he succeeds and he waddles around laughing hysterically every time he runs into something. This is a very fun game to him! I can't not help but laugh until I feel the urge to tinkle. Once I re-do all that, I hear something in his room being thrown around. He is throwing out all of his shoes from his shoe drawer trying to find a match while he says repeatedly, "Bye Bye! Bye Bye!". Then Cody wakes up and it is time to nurse. After Shane climbs all over me during Cody's feeding session I change Cody's diaper, put him in the swing, then make Shane lunch. I successfully feed Shane his Dino Chicken tenders with minimal food throwing. Nite Nite time! and I put him down for a nap. I attempt to start the dishes, when Cody starts crying. He pooped AGAIN!!! I change his diaper again, cuddle him for a while (Cody is my cuddle monster), then put him down for another nap. My sister calls. We talk for 20 minuets, then I finally start writing. I am exhausted already and I have not even worked out yet. My stomach starts to ache from emptiness and I realize I haven't had lunch yet! I have got to get more organized.
