a first + an update

Today marks the first time something happened that should have happened a long time ago. I dropped Norah off with her grandparents for the day just because. I don't have anything I have to do. Besides clean, and just get things done I've been day dreaming about doing for weeks now. I'm old so this excites me.

Who knew having a baby could take up so much time? I mean I knew. But I thought I'd be able to multi task. That's kind of a joke.

Not that things are in complete shambles. But I have pretty high standards for myself as far as what gets done in a day. And it is going to feel soooo good to meet those standards. Even though now I'm leaning toward just laying on the couch all day.

Blogging has taken a back seat, obviously. And that's ok. But it's nice that this ole blog is still here when I do want to come ramble on and update the few friends that I specifically keep up with on this medium!

So what the heck have we been up to? Staying warm mostly. The snow was great for a while, but I'm officially over it. I am ready to take Norah on walks and break out my shorts (not that I can fit them probably), and be able to leave the house without worrying about 76 layers for the baby.

I've been selling the heck out of some skin care. I met and exceeded my goad for my first official month as a Rodan+Fields consultant, and I can't wait to keep the momentum going.

In other breaking news, I officially hate cooking dinner. I think it's because after 4 bottles, 2-3 attempts at baby food, making Will's lunch, throwing together my breakfast and then lunch, and four dog food fill ups a day- by the time dinner comes, I just. Don't. Care. Hoping that once the weather warms and I get my mojo back I will rediscover my love for cooking.

My attempts at being offline as much as possible lasted all of seven seconds. I'm just a person that loves social media and electronics. It is what it is.

Another fun thing I've been doing lately is waking up around 2am for NO REASON, then not being able to get back to bed until maybe 4:30am. It's awful. Norah usually gets up around this time, so there's that small silver lining that I am already up anyway, but there is no reason I need to be up for two hours. Speaking of this, I was SURE by six months she would be sleeping through the night. No cigar. We are close though, I just know it. Speaking of six months, I'm working on that post.

We booked a vacation to Lake Michigan this summer and I am pumped. The house is adorable and I can't want to watch my baby play in the sand.

Thats all for now. What have you been up to?

I feel ya. I don't even have a baby, but a day where Jared is gone and I have nothing to do (super rare) feels like a mini-vacation for me because I can get things done uninterrupted!
