One of those days.


Adorable cranky monster.

I had a bad day. I may have cried in the grocery store. Bennett cried the entire time, so it was a little overwhelming. What’s a girl to do? I stopped and fed him at a table in Starbucks afterward,  and got a little teary. Maybe I bawled when we got home. Maybe. And then I got a migraine.

I’ve been a wee bit down lately. It’s a hard adjustment going from having awesome friends, to basically none. And being alone constantly with kids. Jon was gone for almost 9 months, but I still had awesome people to hang out with. ((I mean YOU my wonderful Madison friends.)) I was definitely not lonely. It’s lonely here. And Jon’s only home on nights and weekends, since he works and what-not. Annnd he’ll be gone training until basically June. Yay. It’s hard not having any help with an extremely cranky, teething baby who only wants to be held. All. Day. Don’t let that adorable little face fool you…unless he’s being held (or worn) or interacted with, he’s crying. I don’t know what his deal is. Needless to say, it’s been frustrating. I literally can’t even cook or clean, and a mess drives me insane. *sigh*


In other news, there was a tornado warning a couple weeks ago. It was about an hour away, but my phone kept going off so I put the kids in the bathtub so I could look up weather stations and figure out what was going on. McKenzie was scared, she was all dressed up for a princess-themed birthday party. But I can’t believe there aren’t basements here? Really? They should at least make reinforced closets or something. Urgh. There’s a business idea for ya.

I’m almost done decorating. I painted one wall in McKenzie’s room…we’re technically not supposed to paint, but since we’ll be here about 18 more months, I figured I’d make it nice. I have 3D butterflies from Target, and I painted some (13) the same color as the wall…those are all on the white walls. And the curtains are the same color as the wall. I’ll post some additional pics now that it’s complete, but I took this while the paint supplies were still on the floor. [[wink]]

You are missed here! I’m sure it’s hard being in a new city with a “sticky” baby. Having adult interaction (besides with the hubby) is so necessary – you’ll find “your” people soon :)
McKenzie’s room is looking awesome! I love that turquoise color.
