Negative Nelly

I hate that my last post has spent so much time at the top of my blog, but I haven't had much to write about this week. I'm not usually that negative - I was just stressed out. I had just spent the entire week without Josh around to give me a Grayson break, and in the meantime I was studying for my nutrition final and preparing for my very first sharing time. Wouldn't you know my Primary partner went out of town last Saturday and she won't be back until May 10? So it was just me and the kiddos during Primary, and I have a couple that frequently misbehave. You can imagine how sharing time went, let alone our class lesson afterward. Top that off with home teachers that never showed up, Josh telling me about the boys in his Teachers class that don't know how to read, and a fellow ward member telling me that of all people, I should understand how hard it is to get back on your feet after having a baby. Excuse me? I had a baby on Saturday, came home Monday afternoon, and my husband went back to work full-time Wednesday morning. Don't tell *me* what I should understand. I didn't get coddled at all and definitely didn't need to be. Ugh! I just had to vent. And the worst part is it's pissing me off again just thinking about it.

Okay, time to change the subject...


Grayson will be graduating to his own room on his 3-month birthday this week! Well, that's only if I finish moving his clothes and other baby items out of our room into his on time, which should be no problem. And Josh has to spray for bugs before he moves in as well. The only thing worse than a spider in my room is one in my baby's room. And before you accuse me of being paranoid, here's a picture of the roommate I had to throw out of Grayson's room a mere nine days ago:

Ugh. I seriously loathe spiders. And those are the wall corners where the crib sits! The good news is that since there was no baby to harm with chemicals, I sprayed that sucker dead with my favorite spider-killer-spray:Yep, Hot Shot Spider Killer. This is the best spider-killer ever. This stuff plus OxiClean Baby make me a happy mommy.

Hey Paige, we need to hang out. I guess in a couple weeks we can hang out in the mother's lounge at church! It's so funny to read your blog and see this other side of you that I don't see in person (yet--until we start hanging out more). Now that Grayson is a little older I can start bringing Alexander around more often. I was always afraid of getting the little squirt sick. Not that Alexander is sick very often, but you never know.

Best spider killer ever? I. Don't. Think. So. Best one ever is a size 10½ combat boot. Gets 'em every time. :-)
