Bullet-pointed Life

Yesterday was gloriously lazy. I needed it in a big way. But the curse of a lazy day is that the following day there is nothing to blog about, and it gets exhausting trying to crank out a blog post about absolutely nothing. Haha.

When I can't think of anything else to do, I make lists. Bullet points are so much easier than trying to string together words that don't sound like a 1st grader trying desperately to sound smarter. (I'm exhausted. Grace woke up twice last night bright eyed and bushy tailed, which she NEVER does, and then decided to wake up at 6:30 this morning. I'm running on about three hours of sleep right now. Help me.)

So bullet points it is! These are just a few of the totally random thing happening in our world lately.

* Kamikaze ANTS tried to raid our house last week - those little suckers will brave windex bottle sprayers and crazed stay at home moms to feed their queen, apparently - and they were nearly victorious. I was just about hysterical near the end, but we finally got those little pests for good. I hear we're not the only ones having problems with ants this year, so if those little marchers are driving you mad, we highly recommend this stuff:

I find it hilarious that we're feeding our ants "gourmet" anything, but I'm telling you this junk works and it works FAST. You can find it for about $15, and it will increase your value of life by about 300%. We have professional ant traps to put it in, but those weren't doing the job at first. So Eric used his thinker and just poured some of it into a little plastic bowl, placed a paper towel on top so that the ants could drink without drowning, and WALAH! those suckers took it back to their queen and killed the colony. Done and done.

*I am usually a huge proponent of summer and warm weather, but even I'm sick of it. Taking our family walks have been tough when it stays hot well past sundown. We're thinking about airing up the bike tires and starting bike riding season instead. Grace is finally old enough to sit up in this thing next to her sister:

In fact, Eric, why don't we do this tonight? I'm all in. :)

*I'm about to get a great birthday present thanks to many of my friends and family! The girls night we had on Tuesday was a success! Thanks again to everyone who came. I loved holding babies, getting to talk, and just seeing so many of you in one place. If you want more information on how to get free pretties for YOUR home, here's my friend Connie's website: 

Random thought alert:

*Nickelodeon is a tease. So apparently they're "bringing back" the 90's with all of their old programming. But it's only on Mondays. It's on Teen Nick. And it doesn't start until most of us are asleep at night. Yes, I want to watch "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" "Pete and Pete,"" Clarissa Explains it All," and "Double Dare" but please make it more accessible. Pretty please. We would SO be a Nickelodeon family if that were the case, but for now we're sticking with the Disney Channel.  <-- This is my attempt to scare the execs over there into doing what I want. Are you reading this, Nickelodeon? :)

*The girls are now obsessed with this movie:

We watch it at least three times a day, and we're already on round two this morning. Evelyn runs around the house singing, "Everybody want's to be a cat!" It's cute, but man I can't wait for cooler temps so we can get out more!

*I'm realizing more and more how incredibly blessed I am to have Eric for a husband, best friend, and partner in crime. :) Our marriage is infinitely better when we aren't both running on empty. 

And now I have to wrap this up, because my kids are literally tearing my house apart. Starting today I get to turn on my creative juices and have fun with my babies, just like the old days. I'm excited for my "mom" role to take up the most of my time again! I'm teeming with ideas, so stay tuned. :)

I saw your comment on Facebook about the old Nickelodeon shows and immediately went to the guide trying to find them and was pretty much just as disappointed as you were.
