Stuffy Face

Oy, this was a long week. It was nice to get back into a routine but I just had zero energy this week. Now I realize it's probably because I was getting sick. It started with a sore throat that got worse and worse and now it's a full fledged cold and laryngitis. Ugh. There's no rest for the weary in this house and of course when you're a stay at home mom, there's no calling in sick. So I've tried to keep on trucking. Mary did wake up with O.G. last night so that helped. After some Nyquil I was out like a light. Though of course, I was woken up bright and early at 6:30 a.m. to take over the kid duty. At that time I realized my nose was still blocked and I could barely speak. But Nyquil, how good is that stuff? Geesh, I slept like a rock.

On a positive note, we've finally had some nice weather with decent temperatures. This winter has been draaaaging so it's nice to see some sun and know that Spring is really on it's way. Today seems even better than yesterday. There doesn't seem to be a cloud in the sky. We are heading into the city to tool around and get some lunch. Since I feel like my head is ready to implode, I hope that everyone in the Boston area doesn't have the same idea.

Another Year

I'm getting back into some sort of routine. I finally started laundry yesterday and unpacked.

Poor O.G. has his 1st cold. He is all stuffy and I think he has an ear ache as he keeps grabbing one of his ears. He was also screaming bloody murder at 4 a.m. even though I was up to feed him at 3 a.m. I've found that massaging his feet helps almost anything. So weird, he loves Reflexology.

Anywho, my birthday was this past weekend and Mary got me a Wii. I am officially addicted! :-) We also picked up the Wii Fit and Guitar Hero. It was funny because Mary really didn't want to get the Guitar Hero but I insisted and now she's obsessed. I like it but I'm into the other games more especially Mario Kart :-) My Wii fit age started at 41. What?!? I'm definitely out of shape but come on, 41?!? Yesterday I was down to 28. Nice.

For my birthday day, we just hung out except for going to the store to pick up the Wii accessories. Then we got cupcakes from Kicka** Cupcakes - so yummy. I had a champagne one. It's a yellow cupcake with a champagne soaked strawberry in the middle and champagne icing. I love cupcakes.

Later my sister watched the kids so we could go out. We went for sushi. There was a long wait and in the mean time I drank 2 sakitinis. I was buzzed by the time we were seated but just had to try another one. When we got home, we played Guitar Hero.

The next day, I had a Strawberry Shortcake party. Ha! My dad and older brother came up. We ate pizza and ice cream cake.

This birthday was funny because it could've been a bday for a 15 year old *or 7 year old* - video games, cupcakes, ice cream cake. Hey, I can be a "hip" mom.

It's Been a While

There just never seems to be enough time or good enough internet connection for blogging. Since you last "saw" me...

Mary had a birthday (Jan 29)

We celebrated an anniversary (Feb 12)

And I had a birthday (yest Feb 21) pics yet :-)
O.G. also turned 7 months yesterday...can you believe it???

Last week I was in Ohio visiting fam. I (all by myself) drove me and the kids there. Can you believe it? It was a bit crazy the first day. I planned to do 6 hours of the 13 hour drive but only managed about 4. O.G. was just pissed to be in the car and Cam wasn't helping matters. The next day was completely different and both boys cooperated especially Cam who everything I asked said, "yup, sure". Who is this child and can I keep him??? :-)

Anywho, we had a fun time visiting my brother's family, my mom, and sister. Cam had a blast playing with Seamus Jr. They are so similar it was funny to watch them. O.G. and Dylan are 2 months apart but SO different. O.G. is just so much more active and just silly. Dyl on the otherhand is more of a serious baby and not so active. Plus, he's huge. I think it's because he's over fed but maybe he's just big.

We were there from Friday to Friday. It was only me and the boys since Cam's school was closed and Mary had to work. I figured it would be easier for everyone since I know Mary gets irritated if we mess with her work schedule. My sister ended up driving back with me which was great since we busted out the drive in an entire day and I was able to be in the back seat with the boys most of the time.
