i’ve been neglectful of my blog recently. but i’ve been busy crafting, hanging with buds and chasing the H-monster all around our house. her crawling skillz are beyond what i thought babies could even do – she is freaking fast, man. then there is this nonsense:


does it make me a bad mom that i secretly (well not so secretly anymore) want to push her over when she does this? relax – not like push push, but like, a gentle nudge so she stops doing it? i’m not ready for my baby to be doing this crap! she’s supposed to be needing me and wanting to play with me and cuddling with me, not crawling away. boo hoo! BOO HOO!july09 280

this week should be interesting – it’s going to be record highs and i am not looking forward to it. today was grossly hot and it’s going to reach 100 supposedly. that equals like, 178 degrees in our upstairs. ya know, where we sleep and the baby sleeps? poor dear is in there right now in just a dipe, fan blowing and window open. wish us all luck.

as a parting gift, i give you my latest shabby creation. night y’all.

    Very cute pillow Mandy! You guys need to buy a portable or window ac unit for upstairs. We finally bought one for this summer and I am so glad we did, it works wonders and I can’t believe we hadn’t gotten one sooner. We got a deal on ours at Costco but I bet having Scot work at Home Depot you could get a good deal on one there. It hasn’t really made our electric bill go up so the main expense was the upfront purchase. Stay cool!

    our house is like that. we have a cape cod and our bedroom is the upstairs. it’s a really open layout which i think is supposd to help the AC problem but it doesn’t work. we put a window unit in even though we have central air. ohio is narsty in the summer.

    ps. it has not made our electric bill go up either! good luck! um, and costco has them on sale right now. :) oh, and it’s worth spending the extra $50 so that it lasts more than a year. we got an uber cheap one last year and it worked, but only for one summer.
