It's been a few days since I've posted because we've been really busy lately. Nothing too interesting though! We had a family party to go to on Saturday and I was beyond frazzled that day since I'd had NO sleep the night before and went alone since Matt was home installing the electric in the twins room. I had zero patience for Grace's antics. And the family party in and of itself was just the usual. It seemed as if no one wanted to be there and was annoyed because their Saturday was being interrupted. I really go and make an effort to go because it makes my Grandmother SO happy to have the whole family together.
The electric is now finished and we just have to buy light fixtures and baseboard heaters. I still need to to figure out what color to paint the walls and what color carpet we want to install. I just want neutrals since hopefully the house will be on the market in the not too distant future. But who knows.
I found a few new blogs that I've been reading lately about other Mom's with twins who also have older children. It makes me feel so much more 'sane' reading how similar our experiences are. Sometimes I just feel like there is NO ONE who understands. I also sometimes feel like such a freak when I tell people who old our kids are and they just look at me like, "Don't you know what birth control is?!"...I always feel the need to tell them that they were all PLANNED! Well---we didn't plan on having twins but we did plan having another child close in age to our other two. I'll have to add the other blog links to this page.
Today didn't exactly go as planned - we were planning on working upstairs on the twins room but now that's not happening for reasons I won't go into. I'm going to go to Target and the outlets as soon as Ev wakes up from his nap and then it'll be time for dinner and bed so this day is pretty much shot.
(I'm sorry this blog is so random...I've had very little sleep these last two nights!)
I did go and get my tattoo on Friday. It was more painful than I thought it would be at certain times! It hurt on my ribs and my hip bone! Almost five hours later it was finished and I left there, got in my car and cried. I saw it finished and three dimensional from all of the swelling and just cried. But now that it looks normal and doesn't hurt so much I like it. I'm trying to keep it from getting scabs but it's hard just because of the location. I haven't worn anything but lounge pants since Friday, I feel like such a bum! I still can't believe I actually did it, especially since I really never ever thought I would get one and never really wanted one until recently. I'll post pictures of it at some point after it is healed maybe. I'm not really into showing it off though. We will see.
In other news, the kids are all good. The babies are still eating like piggies - drinking about 6 oz at some feedings and all of the sudden having no rhyme or reason to their feeding schedule. They are holding toys and starting to pick up everything they can and put it in their mouths! I can't believe how big they are. We take Grace and Ev to the doctor tomorrow for much overdue checkups - Mommy of the year award to me!
Well - I have more random news but both babies are fussing even the one strapped to my chest as I try to type this!
