I have been a bit zonked from sleep deprivation. Other than the 'lost photos', I haven't taken any shots of us as a group lately. So.....have a super crappy photo of our morning. This is how my life feels lately.......blurry.
Still, my days are filled with the smell of a tiny baby's head, and liberal hugs from Violet and my super sweet husband. I'd be peachy if I could get a few more hours of sleep a night. Oh! My doctor finally released me to exercise. Two weeks of exercise has done wonders for my state of mind. My body, however, feels like jello. I spent the better part of a year not being able to do anything due to pregnancy complications, so I am ready to get strong and functional again. Not to mention lose some of this baby weight---blech. I've lost 30 pounds since I had Piper, but there are still some I'd like to see go away.
I'm a very visual person, and our local aesthetic (or lack thereof) drives me a little batty. I miss living in an area with neat, cute, well-designed store fronts. Around here, people just throw up a crappy hand painted sign and call it done. Look at those two jippy signs! Is it so wrong to want things to be pretty? Am I just too high maintenance?
I know a top-of-the-line storefront isn't possible for everyone's budget, but surely they can do better than that. The above example wouldn't be too much harder, and it just looks so much cuter. Have some pride, people.
I have no room to talk, though. If you saw the state of my house, you'd fall over and die. Still-my home isn't a business.
