Random Weekend Stuff

So I know it's Tuesday.  Why? Cause Monday kicked my butt.  Bruiser was sick Friday so I stayed home with him and did mommy stuff.  He was generous with his germs and by Saturday evening I was sick.  A nasty head cold took up residence in my sinuses and breathing became difficult to say the least.  Sunday and Monday were a bust as I couldn't summon the energy to do anything.  I am sort of back among the living today.  So on to the randomish weekend stuff:

  • After all that, we did do some stuff to the house on Saturday before I got hit by the bus of sick.  Turbo's room got rearranged and he is thrilled.  Pictures to come.
  • In changing his room around, we, of course, stirred up plenty of dust.  My allergies kicked off and I really thought that that was all the runny nose was about.  Little did I know that it was a cold chasing those allergies.
  • We had a potty success on Sunday.  Bruiser voluntarily pooped on the potty.  It was a victory in the potty war.  Now to follow up on this success, he needs to go again.  We shall see what comes.
  • I took my first soaky bath of the season.  I love taking a long hot bath with a good book but during the summer when it's hot they don't have much appeal. It's finally cold enough to appreciate a hot bath again.
  • Bruiser has changed his mind about what he wants to be for Halloween about 6 times now.  Currently he wants to be Batman.  Turbo can't decide either.  Good thing Halloween is a month away, plenty of time for them to change their minds several times before then.
  • Since changing Turbo's room around, Nick thinks we should do something with Bruiser's room.  I'm not so sure.  We have 5 bins of clothes that are waiting for Bruiser to grow into.  These are in Bruiser's room.  We may finally be able to downsize one of them--the clothes are getting more able to span more than one year and there are not so many of them. Maybe with some creative rearranging we can make the room a bit better.  I checked and the bins will fit in the closet.  If we can find another place for some of the stuff we are storing in the closet, we can put a couple of them in there. I'm also going to change the way things are stored--shirts and such in one bin, pants in another.  Since the clothes are more small medium and large now it might be easier to store them that way.
  • Wow, that one got a bit long.  See what randoming when sick can do?
  • Nick and I are going to have a celebration on election night.  What for?  Why to celebrate the end of the political ads.
How was your weekend?  Need to random it up?  Go link up with Stacy and get your random on.
Also link up with Shawn and Impulsive, who had a fun get together (that I am totally jealous of).  They have Talk To Us Tuesday.
Seriously Shawn


  1. Ohhh...just reading that makes me want to go home and take a long, hot soaky bath!!

    I hope you're feeling better today!!

  2. i've been fighting that same sickness the last few weeks. i also didn't feel very good this weekend. ugh i hate it.

    can't wait to see pics of turbo's room!

  3. Cold+allergies=no good! So sorry! Can't wait to see pics of the Updated room

  4. I can't wait to see Turbo's rearranged room! I really need to tackle Princess Nagger's room - I feel bad, her's is a huge chaotic mess since we were in a hurry when we were getting Little Dude placed with us and moved her into the former guest room...it's been a year and I still haven't touched the stacks of boxes and tubs we threw everything in. She hasn't complained, though, but it would be nice to make her room all nice and, uh...liveable! LOL! :)

    Yay for potty success! *fingers crossed* for many more...

    I'm right there with you on not having the desire to take a hot soaky bath during the hot/humid summer months. Especially since our upstairs bathroom gets so steamy/humid...I'd rather take a cold shower to cool down! Now that it's cooling off, I'm really looking forward to a good soak in a hot bubble bath with a book and a glass of wine! :)

    Princess Nagger has that same problem with changing her mind every few days about what she wants to dress up as for Halloween - I think she finally settled on dressing up as Katniss... :)

    I think a celebration of the end of political ads is a great idea! ;)

    Hope you feel better soon!!!

  5. I'm so sorry you're sick! Ugh. I need to get inspired to do some things around this house, I just can't get it together. At least Batman sounds kind of doable. Jude wants to be a Minecraft character. Ugh.

  6. Elliot also wants to be Batman but does keep changing his mind. I'm pretty sure I won't be making any final decisions until much closer to Halloween.

    And I agree: I will be happy to see those political ads go!

  7. Ooh can't wait to see the pictures of Turbo's room!

    Sorry to hear you guys were sick but glad you are feeling better.

    O a big YAY for the potty training win!

  8. YAY for poo poo success! Now, it will just get better! (hopefully).

    I LOVE a good long hot bath too but I do it year round. It normally has to happen when Emma is asleep or it's not peaceful and she will strip so she can join me. =/

    Emma is currently sick with strep AND a double ear infection. I sure hope she doesn't share her germs with me but I think it's too late.

    Thanks for linking up my friend!
