well i just put little man to bed. what a day it has been. Its so rainy and dreary outside so B and i held up the fort from inside today. He did remarkably well just playing all by himself while i got lots of things done. I caught up all the laundry and Booger learned to take out the lint trap in the dryer! I addressed all my Christmas cards while B ate a snack and watched a video, i did some online shopping for Christmas while Boogie took a nap and then we vacuumed. He's so funny...he just follows the vacuum wherever it goes and tries to look up under it while its being pushed. He just cant quite figure it out. Tonite as Todd and i were playing with him in the bonus room Barrett started playing with his legos and stacking them up and building some lopsided structure and it hit me...he's never stacked legos before!! Up until now he just destroys whatever creation Todd or i build but tonite he was locking the pieces together (not always in the right spots mind you!). I know this seems so trivial but it seems that each day he discovers something new, its just amazing. Well Todd and i are going to watch Fred Claus so i will catch up later!

ok im finally back. Its the day after thanksgiving and i am enjoying some peace and quite. My hubby (who has recovered from his stomach virus) is at a football game and my precious booger is fast asleep. Yes i call him booger. Much to my mothers disapproval, she prefers i shorten it to Boo. I dont know where the name came from but it just stuck and i cant seem to help but calling him that...and sometimes i just say boogie. Today was a good day, lots of running around and errands to be ran. Somehow i wound up cleaning out closets today. This is something that needed to be done but just not today. There were a million other things i needed to do today but somehow one thing led to another and there i was knee deep in clothes i haven't worn in 2 years and things that booger has outgrown (i.e. carseat, bathtub, clothes, bouncy seat, where are you supposed to store all this stuff???). My friend Sara stopped by in the midst of this (to dig through my clothes i was discarding) and she says that we do things like this b/c we can see an end result, and i have to agree. It was definitely self gratifying to see a project come to a completion. Especially when so often i clean, clean, clean only to see no evidence of my cleaning! This must be part of having a 1 year old. Well im going to enjoy what i have left of my quite time. good nite.

Ok i must admit ive always thought blogs to be odd. people journaling their thoughts for others to read and who really cares what i have to say anyways?? Well here i am spilling my own thoughts on paper ...well on a screen. My motivation is my 1 year old son Barrett. I keep saying how i wished i would have starting journaling when i was pregnant so i could remember everything, then it was i wish i would have journaled when he was born so i could remember everything, well now he's just turned 1 and i am not going to say that...Im going to do something about it! No more excuses. I dont have a lot of time at the moment (im on my lunch break) but i will blog back later and get this thing started! I hope everyone has a great day!
