1. In what ways does eating still feel complicated to you?
I’m looking for some new blog post ideas and I think this question could generate some posts that would help you. Let me know in the comments!
2. Llama backpack
I got Jojo (let’s be honest…I got me) a llama backpack to pack her stuff in for preschool/daycare. It’s adorable. Here’s an affiliate link for it if you’re interested –> llama backpack. It makes Andrew sad whenever he looks at it because he feels like Jojo is getting old.
One of the things I will miss about having in-home childcare is the motivation it gave me to tidy-up the house two times a week (i.e. unload the dishwasher, sweep/vacuum, pick up the kitchen), because I didn’t want our nanny to spend all day in a messy house. I used to always say I don’t see messes so I didn’t mind having a cluttered house, but since having Jo I’ve noticed I enjoy cleaning and having a clean house more than I ever have. Maybe because there is so much noise now that I don’t want the “noise” clutter creates.
3. Life update.
We’re moving mid August! FINALLY! It’s been a really slow process because the people we bought our new house from needed a 3-month lease back period and then we asked for a lease back period from our home’s new owners so we could wrap up the renovations at the new place. But the renovations aren’t going to be done in time, so we’re moving into an Airbnb for a month and I’m really excited about it. The Airbnb is super cute and in an area we likely wouldn’t ever live in. So it’ll feel like a little vacation (I hope lol).
We’ve started packing up boxes and the move finally feels real. Jo’s room is pretty bare now! It feels so good to clean out stuff!
The new house is coming along. Cabinets/vanities got built last week…
4. Something Robyn posted on Stories.
I saw Robyn/Paige post this excerpt from Landwhale on Stories (that’s an affiliate link). The line I loved was: “Once I am able to find some neutral space inside of me I will be able to continue allowing [my body] to disappear into the background.” So good.
5. And we’re only gonna do 4 thoughts in this 5 thoughts post, because that’s all I got haha.
Have a good weekend!
