I know, I know – this blog is a mess. I haven’t had time to really do much with it the past couple of years due to all the crazy of moving, renovations, kids, health issues, etc. Now that we are in temp housing (starting a new chapter of life – relocating to Ft. Lauderdale so my husband could jump on an amazing opportunity with Magic Leap) – living in a furnished beachfront condo filled with someone elses’ stuff I am hoping to find some more time for that.
In theory it should be easy considering all of my creative crafty stuff & machines that I need for work are 300 miles away. However, it’s summer break with my little people. Normally I have 6,000 crafts and project on hand to keep them entertained and busy. We don’t have any of that stuff here, and anything creative with kids paired with all the white carpet & light fabric on the furniture here just gives me anxiety! My kids turn into mess making tornadoes all over the house when they get bored. For instance, the other day I just needed 20 minutes to load and unload the dishwasher, do a little laundry, possibly answer a few emails, and try and squeeze in 45 seconds to jump in the shower. Laundry & Dishwasher duty completed, I thought I had a good 3 minutes to jump into the shower. I thought wrong. 45 seconds in:
“MOMMY!!!!???!!!! MYLES IS MAKING A MEEEEEHHH-EEEHHHHSSSSSS”.
*sigh* One day I will be able to enjoy a nice hot, long shower. This was not one of those days. Luckily I just rinsed the shampoo out before being summoned to assess the damage…at least my hair was clean! Only one leg was shaved, but this is just how I roll these days!
Damage control assessment: mild- to moderate. Amount of time with a structured activity or me in the room: 15 minutes
Maisie (my 6 year old) “straightened up” her room. Translation: throw all the laundry I had folded and sorted on her bed onto the floor in order to lounge comfortably while watching “Monster Hive” (high) on her ipad.
Myles the Menace (my 3 year old) found some vinyl wall decals and used them to decorate the inside of the front door. Not sure if this was before or after he made it “rain” all over the family room with an entire box of Fruity-O’s.
So we will see how the blogging goes. Be prepared for a lot of round-ups. If I can’t be creative, then I might as well get lost daydreaming & planning all the projects I will do when we sell our home in Orlando & find a place here:)
Have a great weekend!
