A Snapshot

The sickies continued in my house this weekend. Ugh!

 

Actually, it got a bit better by Friday afternoon.

I was able to get the laundry room all cleaned up (FINALLY!). You wouldn't believe the random things I found hiding in there. Or maybe your laundry space regularly looks like mine so you would? Maybe? Regardless, it's clean now! Woohooooooo! I went ahead and snapped a few pictures for the house tour, because even though laundry rooms aren't until the fall, I'm not sure when it will ever look like this again.

It was pretty great timing to snap a picture of the laundry because this weeks #mommyreality challenge is to show off your laundry room. Too bad I didn't snap a before shot. Because we all know it will eventually look messy again because that's just the way it is.

 

My not so messy laundry room!
 

I also cleaned all of the baby things (burp cloths, blankets, bibs, teeny tiny socks and shoes, etc.) out of the twins closet and have it all ready to go into Baby J's room just as soon as I figure out how I'm organizing it.

On Saturday the boys were exhausted and fussy but Casey and I were both feeling okay so the productivity continued. I started working in Baby J's closet and got it completely cleared of everything. It's ready to hold his teeny tiny things just as soon as I get everything washed and organized! Casey's Dad helped him knock out a few big tasks as well. They hung three lights in the house, got holes drilled in Baby J's dresser (because of course the old drawer pulls used non-standard spacing), and got the blackout curtains hung.




Crossing things off!!

While we all worked, Casey's Mom played with the fussies who ended up taking TWO naps on Saturday because they just couldn't handle being awake. Dun dun dun....

Come Saturday evening, the boys were sick again! In fact, they were so exhausted they slept until 10AM Sunday morning! Casey was also struck low once again and by Saturday night he was in a really bad place and he was really getting concerned about dehydration.

We laid low on Sunday to try and give everyone a chance to recover.

Both boys. Still asleep at 10AM. Exhausted sick babies.
 

I did a few loads of laundry (and none of them ended up folded on top of the dryer! Go me!!) and ran to Target to look at baskets for Baby J's room. We all ate dinner in the living room (the boys first time!) so we could watch the World Cup game -- what a disappointing ending!

 

Dinner in front of the soccer game. A baby milestone!
 

And this is officially the most boring post ever so if you made it this far, I applaud you!

    1. Thanks. It cleans up nice when I don't have mile high stacks of clean laundry on it!

  2. Oh your laundry room looks wonderful and what I want mine to look like! Bravo that the folded/clean laundry didn't end up folded and sitting on top of the dryer. That is a serious accomplishment!

    1. I'm not bad at DOING laundry but I'm THE WORST at putting away laundry! I'm just hoping I can keep up with the putting away until BabyJ arrives next week. My goals aren't huge!

    1. Mine took two hours to look like that. And since I'm just not sure how long it will last I took photos for a blog post in I think October!

  4. Yes I'm having that Laundry room envy as well! I want a new front load washer and dryer like yours SO BAD! But it's not on the top of our priority list right now since what we have works fine and we still have MUCH renovating to do! I also love that you are a checklist person like me! I feel so accomplished when I see what I have marked off!

    1. Honest answer -- I'm not sure I'd buy front loaders again. I think I would get a top loader because I really miss being able to soak clothes in the washer. I had no clue I wouldn't be able to do it in my front loader!

    1. That tiny little binder (it's half the size of normal paper) is my life at this point! I need it to stay sane!
