Today I have a hundred thoughts running through my head. I am all over the place and for that I apologize. This blog has really inspired me to try new things and to be more creative. As a result I am getting ready to borrow a sewing machine (Lord help us all) from my sister-in-law. Every morning as I dress my kids I find myself thinking, I could make that. Don't get too carried away, I do not intend to make a full wardrobe for my 3 children, only to try out a few things. We will all see how this new indeavor pans out as I promise to show the good, the bad, and the ugly.
On top of my new quest to sew, I am getting ready to do a mini-renovation in Patrick's room. He is getting too big for his changing table and I am preparing to put a twin bed in his room to use for dressing and changing him. In the process, I am going to repaint, and redecorate. This should all be interesting because I have a very small budget (my husband still doesn't fully know what I am up to). Having two toddlers on the ground and moving to a new home while pregnant with Patrick, I sort of threw a room together and I have never really loved it. Now is as good a time as any to tackle it I suppose. I have some fun ideas and I will share them along the way.
As if these new endeavors were not enough, I have decided to pick up and take all 3 kiddos to the river cabin for the week. My husband is slammed at work and I know the only way he can get it all done this week will be with a quiet house. Don't worry, I am not totally insane... I will be taking along a babysitter for some much needed extra hands and eyes. Even I am not crazy enough to brave the river and driving a boat with 3 little kids alone! Since the cabin is in the middle of nowhere, you can rightly assume that there is absolutely nothing to do there (oh, and NO internet). I have been packing all day and I am coming fully armed. I am bringing plenty of outdoor things to do including bubbles, sidewalk chalk, and little fishing rods. I am also bringing fun recipes to do with your kids. I plan to try my hand at bread making and attempt homemade soft pretzels (recipe soon to follow).
FYI- I have never driven a boat and I have never fished. One thing is certain... I will return Friday loaded with pics, good stories, and recipes. This should be interesting...
