Where is Your Little Piggy Going?

"This little piggy goes to Market,
This little piggy went to the Show.
This little piggy went to Vegas,
This little piggy we don't know.
AND this little piggy went wee wee wee wee all the way home."

What I heard from the drivers seat on our travels yesterday. My Hubby is so cute!

Two Questions:

#1: When did you start skipping one of your kids naps?

My little Sweet Pea hasn't been so sweet lately. She is a fighter. She does NOT want to go down for her naps at all. She screams and yells, kicks and flails, and sometimes is all ends in her throwing up all over the place. So frustrating. Do I skip the morning nap at 10 months? Or do I continue to fight with her? When did your kids start skipping naps?

#2: What do you do for your younger kids in the car on long trips?

We are taking the 11 hour jaunt to Californ-i-a this Christmas and I need a few ideas for keeping a 10 month old busy. Now that she isn't so much of a sleeper I don't know what to do with her. Help.

Friday Confessional

I do exhaustingly comfess:

  • I love Christmas
  • which means that I am filling my 10 month old full of carols and Christmas movies.
  • yeah, I know. She shouldn't be watching so much television and neither should I
  • BUT I just can't help it at Christmas.
  • I don't want to miss one of my favorite shows. (The American Christmas Carol, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, Prancer, Once Magic Christmas, The Muppet Christmas Carol, etc.)
  • there are just so many.
  • my house is still not unpacked from our move 4 weeks ago. (I blame the carpets and the walls)
  • I have done NO Christmas shopping.
  • I'm not one that has all the Christmas shopping done by June,
  • BUT I usually have it don't by this week.
  • UH-OH!
  • Good thing we are leaving for vacation in a week.
  • Crap!
  • My tree is up.
  • I get points for that, Right?
  • I'm not enjoying my Christmas as much as I would like to be
  • We haven't done any of the things we normally do at Christmas time
  • Bake, visit Temple Square, see The Forgotten Carols, walk around the neighborhood to see all the lights. (you put yours up right?)
  • The year has gone by so quickly and the Christmas season is no exception.

How has your Christmas been so far?

Beauty Lesson #2

Never let your hair look this poorly. Wash it every other day. Condition at least twice a week. And brush it every day.

This is what happens when you fall off the wagon:

Oh, yes. This is my hair (and me with no make up) that is in much need of a new style and probably color. My hair is long, scraggly, dull and I just don't do anything with it anymore.

I need a new look. I'm thinking something shorter and darker.

Any ideas for my new look?

Carpet Dilema Over

So much for me putting up the Christmas Tree. We had to move all of our furniture into our kitchen. We moved it the first time for carpet cleaning, but this time is different. A couple of days ago, I sticky rollered my living room and hallway. This is what I found:

These were the 2nd time that I had rolled the carpet. I did it 3 more times. All of them looked the same. Gross.

My sweet Hubby took every single sticky roller paper to the corporate office of the management company of our complex. They found that this wasn't just us over reacting to a little bit of hair. This was a huge problem. They decided to rip out the carpets. Halleluia!! I'm so excited to not have hair all over the my clothes, food, and furniture. It's going to be wonderful.

This is the wall in my bedroom. Hair all over it. I have to wipe it all down and pick off the hair. YUCKY!!

I'm so glad that we are going to have new carpets in our home. No more yucky pet hair.

If you have a pet, please PlEaSe PLEASE bathe your pet regularly, brush them regularly, feed them a high quality meal, and CLEAN YOUR LIVING SPACE. We all love your animals, but we don't want to have them with us after we leave your home. Thanks.

OH The Hair

There is still a lot of hair in my apartment. I just don't know how to get rid of it. Anyone out there know a good way to get it off the walls and tile floor?

We are waiting on the management to decide whether or not they will be cleaning the heating ducts and filters. Hopefully they do. Anyone know what to do if they don't?
