7 Quick Takes (vol. 4)

Our day was a busy one.  We had a play date scheduled for this morning, but had to cancel last minute because I found dried blood on my hand, housecoat-where Ben lays his head while nursing-in his bed, and specks on his ear!  It wasn’t a serious amount, but enough for concern.  After a huge hassle, I managed to get him in to see my family doctor where they told me they couldn’t see any rupture in his ear, nose, mouth.  I was slightly frustrated when I left their office with no answer but to watch for fever and irritability.


After the business of the useless doctor’s appointment, I guzzled a green smoothie and began to clean like a mad-woman.  Our realtor was coming at 4pm to take pictures and to go over our selling agreement.  Chloe decided not to nap, but at least she was content playing in her crib for two hours while I cleaned.  My house was immaculate and I felt really proud of it.  The challenge now is to keep it clean.  We will have an official MLS listing on Monday.  That makes me very happy.


Currently, we’re trying a white noise machine during nap time to help the babies sleep longer and without their cries interrupting their sleep.  Neither child likes the machine in their room, so the only option if we’re to use this thing, is to have it in the small “hall” space between the bedrooms.  There is no plug in nearby, so this is what it looks like during nap time:


The white noise machine is at the end of the extension cord at the top of the stairs.


I’m 100lbs.  That’s too light in my opinion.  When I can see bones I’ve never seen before, I’ve lost too much fat.  Being hungry and eating all the time doesn’t seem to make a difference.  I’m wondering if it’s my thyroid.


Number 3 was a boring quick take.


I haven’t done my prayers or spiritual readings yet today.  I think I’m going to go pick up a bottle of wine and some two-bite brownies and spend some time with Jesus.



I haven’t run at all this week.  It’s sad, but life just got super busy and it’s not about to slow down any.  Maybe now that Ben seems to be feeling better, our house is ‘listed’ and it was 20C outside, I can get my butt out the door by 8:35am again.  That’s the plan for next week.


My favorite Bible verse:

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but
the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”
Matthew 7:21

Happy Friday everyone!
