Thanks for all the kindness and concern for me lately, guys. I am doing better. Much better, actually, and I'll leave it at that for now.
The following pictures are all of my cats in various poses of weirdness in my bathroom. They are OBSESSED with my bathroom, especially Hairy. If I ever am wondering where they are, well, I go into my bathroom, and there they are, lounging in the sink or by the sink or on the counter. It's rather odd.
And for some reason it makes me laugh like crazy, only I'm not laughing at times like today when I'm actually cleaning my bathroom and am mopping up a ridiculous amount of cat hair. Geezy.
Things at the new house are finally starting to settle in, and we are getting into a routine. We wake the kids up at about 8, get Cade ready for school, feed the kids breakfast, then it's off to work for Brandon and I'm off to take Cade to school. And then while he's there, I clean the house and (hopefully blog) and also watch Criminal Minds if I can squeeze time for an episode in. :) And then I plan dinner, worry about the yucky, pre-cooked creepy meat I'm going to have to touch, do it anyway, and then...pick Cade up from school. :) And then we run some errands and chill at the house the rest of the day until Daddy comes home from work.
I think the above photo was my favorite. It was pitch black int he bathroom, and Hairy was just pondering the loveliness of the sink. Brandon saw her, looked at her, then said, "That's where we're going to put her when we stuff her." Heh.
Thrown in there on some days are Cade going to his karate classes that he just started, (he goes 4 times a week and it is ADORABLE) driving 40 minutes back to SLC to hang out with friends or sisters or go to work or doc appointments, and, well, I'm staying pretty busy!
I'm also trying my hand a bit at baking, which I've never EVER done before. So far I can check chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter bars off the list. Pretty simple, right? Next, this afternoon I'm tackling banana bread, which I'm nervous for, because I've never EVEN EVER attempted it. Oh well, we'll see if I have a baker in me...
Anyway. What I'm trying to say is that in general, right now, things are good. I am feeling more settled and more at "home" in my new home. I am starting to get a bit happier. I am settling well into my role as a mama and housewife that cleans and cooks like crazy, which I never did before, unfortunately. So, I feel good. :)
I'm going to try to set aside time every morning to blog, so I am hoping that more regular, "Brie-like" posts will be coming back soon, that are filled with humor and randomosity. I think regular blogging will help me feel better too; more like myself.
