No Computer=Lots of Clean House Time

My house is probably the cleanest it's been in YEARS! (Shhhhh!! Don't tell Steve, he'd make me get rid of the computer all together if he knew that's why it's been so clean!) I had the cleaning bug get me last week and I folded all of my laundry (not necessarily putting it all away...but it's folded!), I vacuumed under my couches, and I scrubbed the heck out of my kitchen sink. Did you know it USED to be white? :P
Things are moving on too. I've slowly gotten past the whole "coyote" incident....but I still shudder when I think about how close that thing was to me and my kids. I'm giggling and WISHING I had a soundbite to give you of that scream. But I'm not so sure I'd be able to re-create it even if I knew how!
Jake is HUGE! My neighbors saw him the other day and mentioned that he doesn't look like he's 3 months old...more like he's 6 months old. The kid is constantly sleeping (which probably means he's gonna grow more, huh.) He's also making super cute "talking" noises. All through Relief Society today he was talking up a storm. He's pretty much outgrown any 3-6 month clothes he has, and SHOULD be in 6-9 month clothes, but that would mean he's getting older and I'm not quite ready for that. So he stretches out his 3-6 month clothes! :P
Cam has had an eventful week. We went to back to school night for the boy on Thursday. Since he's only got 10 kids in his class we were one of the only parents there. Our little classroom orientation was more like parent-teacher conference. He's doing well, but has issues with adjusting back to the school schedule. He also has had his allergies hit him big time and has a constant runny nose, itchy throat and nasty cough. I think his allergies were so bad that he threw up on Friday night, but it also could have been food poisoning. He was a pretty miserable kid for a few hours. We had been invited to go to a baptism on Saturday, but not only did I totally space it, but I really didn't want to take a barfy kid out of the house.
He's also going to have an all new occupational therapist as of next month. His current therapist, who he's had since he was 3, is now cutting out his pediatric patients, and only keeping his older ones. He's going to be doing the leg-work in finding who has openings, and then he'll be done. I'm kinda sad. He's been SUCH a good thing for Cam. I'm sure whoever he gets will be good too, but we'll miss Aaron!
Steve has been having his practices for the Opera he's in. (Yeah, I let him do yet another play....what was I thinking??) He is in The Gondoliers. Never heard of it prior to him being in it, and I really don't know what it's about. I do know that my minimal Italian knowledge has helped him with his singing. See, I didn't COMPLETELY lose my brain cells! :P
And me?? Well, I just try to keep my family going in the right direction. I'm taking Cam to therapies and keeping Jake fed. I try to keep my house clean, and well, without the computer around, I pretty much can....
I miss my computer! ;)

I am pretty much bumbed that your computer is dead. I miss your daily banter. Oh well.

I think a computer vacation would be really well for the cleanliness factor of my house too.

Must be something in the air, we vacuumed under our couches this weekend too! And rearranged furniture, but I don't think I like it and it'll go back to how it was. You know, Jarom and his brother give free 15 minute diagnosis for computers to see how long it will take to fix it. They might even be able to fix it in those fifteen minutes. You should give them a call.

You inspired me... I vacuumed under my couches after we chatted the other day! THANKS!

When my computers are down, I STILL get no housework done, and just go crazier... Make sure you keep an eye on Jakie outgrowing his infant carrier and look into convertibles, if you haven't already (unless you have him in a SafeSeat 1!) I know that's where I notice growth the most... My baby is less than 5 months and already on the 3rd slots in her Radian! Oh my goodness! She has a loooong torso...
