Blame it on the strep

Strep infected our house...first I was hit, then Lily, then Harrison, and finally Randy. Add no daycare for 2 weeks, selling a house, assuming larger role at work and you get no blog entries. Sorry...just the way it is these days.

I have managed to snap a few pictures in the past few weeks so stay tuned for a picture post in the near future.

I was tagged by my friend Kelly a while ago. Oops, just getting around to it.

What I was doing 10 years ago:
I was in college at the University of Iowa. I was living in an apartment with a friend and her boyfriend. She broke up with her boyfriend and he went C-R-A-Z-Y. For example, one morning she was eating breakfast and he set down a knife next to her bowl. I don't remember what he said but I did have to talk to her lawyer about stupid stuff I witnessed him do.

5 things on my to-do list today…

1.) Get gift certificate for my daycare provider. She's like a 2nd mom to my kiddos, takes great care of them while Randy and I work and she's deserves a little pampering on Mother's Day too.
2.) Pump, of course
3.) Telephone conference to discuss changes to my work database. Fun.
4.) Contact realtor to go over house details. They are putting a sign in our yard today!
5.) Clean, in-laws coming tomorrow!

5 snacks I enjoy…

1.) Wheat thins, sundried tomato and basil
2.) 1/2 coffee, 1/2 milk with a splash of creamer
3.) Powerbar, whole grain toffee chocolate chip
4.) Fountain pop
5.) Goldfish.

5 things I would do if I were a billionaire

1.) Buy a few houses (beach house, cabin, slope side condo, etc.) and let the whole family use them
2.) Buy my grandmas new cars
3.) Buy my mom a Jeep Grand Cherokee and a 2nd house in Iowa City
4.) Travel and take family with
5.) Pay off bills for family and friends.

5 bad habits…

1.) Biting my cuticles
2.) Take my socks off at night but leave them in bed. Randy finds them every morning. Funny thing...Lily does the same but I find them under my pillow.
3.) I talk while driving, mostly to bad drivers but I never throw them the finger.
4.) Blogging when I should be working.
5.) Scratching my throat by making a loud noise. Thanks to Kerry and Mel for teaching me, it's the best way ever to get rid of a scratchy throat!

5 places I’ve lived…
1.) Small town, South Dakota
2.) Iowa City, IA
3.) Superior, CO
4.) Lafayette, CO
5.) Thornton, CO...not for much longer

5 jobs I’ve had…

1.) Dog runner at a dog race track
2.) Babysitting from age 10ish-25ish
3.) Salon receptionist
4.) Orange Julius
5.) Dishwasher at Glass Palace (thanks to Aunt Julie for getting me the job)

TAG! Now YOU are it…

Thankfully Max has a high tolerance for babies...

I wasn't being one minute, laundry room the next...

Finally our backyard comes to life...
I just had to document that I'm at work...early...8 minutes early. I even checked my email already. Wow, it's going to be a good day.

The little man is FAST

Did I mention Harrison is crawling?

Did I mention he's a crawling maniac?

He is fast and wants to be even faster, evidenced by squealing, arms and legs moving fast, but falling down because he's not coordinated enough...yet.

He is ALL over the place. He'll be in the kitchen one minute laundry room the next.

He is pulling up on the couch and even better, his crib at 5:30AM.

He was tugging on a highly insecure side table that houses a heavy statue. Why would people with 2 kids own such a thing? Cuz the first one NEVER touched it.

Two weeks ago Harrison sat playing for 45 minutes straight. Haha...not anymore.

Lily's version

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a dinosaur in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

Cute, huh?

Once a month blogging

Wow, it's been a while.

What would keep a person from blogging?

1.) Selling a house
***a.) Renting storage unit
***b.) Boxing stuff for storage
***c.) Delivering stuff to storage

***e.) Delivering stuff for donations
***f.) "Phone interviewing" realtors
***g.) Shopping for house stuff for "staging"
***h.) Randy finished spare bathroom remodel
***i.) New concrete patio completed
***j.) Cleaning

2.) Assuming larger role at work due to boss leaving
***a.) Increase in meetings from 2 a month to 2 a day
***b.) Increase in number of emails from people wanting something
***c.) Increase in responsibilities to assume boss' duties without an increase in pay.

3.) Sick kids
***a.) Lily was puking and had a fever for 3 days and had diarrhea for a week.
***b.) Harrison had a fever and was fussy the past 2 nights (teeth, maybe?)

4.) Isn't that enough?

Harrison is now crawling. Video to be posted soon.

And yes, we are officially moving. There I said it. I wasn't going to yet (work stuff) but it's out there.
