I feel as if I’ve been M.I.A. for the past few days. I haven’t felt like doing anything. My poor house is a mess, the dogs need baths, and my little ole blog has been neglected.
Where have I spending my time?
Well for starters I’ve been attempting to do Crossfit 3x a week… it’s slowly getting there. At least I can wake up the day after and not fall out of bed because my legs aren’t there to catch me.
Next, we went to a Springfield Cardinals game last week. J had won a contest at work and got free tickets to the Budweiser suite. Of course we could not pass up a night of Cardinals baseball, beer, and stadium hot dogs.
Then I’ve been adding prints to the MereLynne Etsy shop. If you haven’t seen the new listings, please check it out. Plus, learning the ins and outs of Etsy has been a bit challenging for me. Promoting my pieces, my site, and my Facebook page are a bit time consuming.
Finally, I’ve been spending some quality time with J and the pups. I’m sure they appreciate that the quality time does not involve water and soap, but they can’t escape that for long. Honestly, I should have cleaned around the house this past weekend. I really, really should have. But the couch looked some comfortable and there was a really good movie on all day… so alas I did not clean.
I’m pretty excited because my parents are coming for a visit this weekend. My Dad hasn’t seen our new place yet. Which means two things: 1) our house has to spotless before 8pm on Thursday night 2) we need to go grocery shopping so that it appears we have food and are doing just fine.
You know, the basics before any parent comes to visit. Don’t look like a slob and pretend that you have enough food to feed yourselves.
It’s going to be a pretty busy week and I’m glad that I took the weekend to prepare for it. See, I’m still trying to convince myself that it was a good thing I was lazy this weekend.
