Good thing I don't care about what people think about me (oh I so wish that was actually true).
So yeah, I may have my struggles (who doesn't?) but if I were to list the great things going on in my life right now, it would by far outweigh (haha) the two lasts posts filled with complaining. But it sure felt great to vent just a little bit...thanks for listening. (and no, the stereotype is not true.)
The rest of this week that I thought would be filled with therapies, mothering, Christmas decorating (and no doubt more complaining posts) has been usurped by the fact that yesterday my grandpa passed away. I wouldn't say as far as grandparent/grandchild relationship that I was terribly close to my grandpa (whole 'nother story), but I am very close to my dad and he (as you can imagine) is quite torn up over unexpectedly losing his dad.
Therefore, we are making every effort to be there for the funeral. Which means a 15 hour drive with two babies- adding in a lot of stress and worry to my otherwise low key week. But it's worth it. Because family is important.
I think driving through the night is our best bet at this point. If you have any tips or pointers of how to keep two babies happy for that long of a drive- I would love to hear them.
I would like to get my Christmas decorating done before we leave (probably Wed night), but I can't decorate the tree until Aaron straightens it, but he says it's already straight and won't move it, so I'm adding in a p.s. to this post asking for your help. (that's a VERY long sentence)
Does this tree look straight to you? (You can see that Addison already knows where the toys should go)
he doesn't think so...
