Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

And here we are again with another Miscellany Monday, wasn't it just Monday the other day?  These 4 day work weeks (plus the sick day I had last week) have me wayyy off track.

You know you hear some people say, "I don't know what I ever did before I had kids."  Well, let me assure you, I know exactly what I did.  I did things like...
  • I would stay in bed until I decided to get up on holidays and weekends
  • I went to the gym at my leisure and stayed for as long as I liked
  • I went for 4 mile walks, 5 times a week, down the local Riverwalk
  • I took long peaceful showers
  • I could easily run out to the store if I needed something
  • I would pick up and leave town on a whim with the Canadian 
  • I spent long days reading books in the sunshine
  • I went out to restaurants and enjoyed the meal and conversations
  • I used my toothbrush - without checking it first
I did all of those things - and it was great...but this life is so much better...
Now, I'm off to enjoy more of this messy, loud, exhausting, chaotic, great life, hope you enjoy your holiday, too!

  1. I will give you a BIG AMEN to that!! These are the best days, aren't they? These are things that money can't buy:)

    Happy Monday,

  2. Dinner and enjoying the conversation? Hold on...yes, I do remember that. And I just have one, shuttering at the thought of two small people spitting their food out after every other bite. Fun!

  3. I know right? I can't believe how easily I could just hop in the car and go to the drug store (in Canada it's Shopper's Drug Mart and where we girls spend a lot of money on makeup, hair products and other fun things). These days, I need to make plans several days ahead and then remind my husband several times that next tuesday at 2pm I am going to go to Shopper's.

  4. I love this post! I sometimes miss the "old" days, but I'd never trade the "new" days! Life is so much better now!

  5. I love your collage !!! And love your list ! And agree with ya, THIS life is SOOOOO much better :)

  6. ....sigh....I did all those things too before I had kids...and I do miss them!
    Love the collage that you made, that's fantastic!

  7. LOVE this post Kerri! I've been TTC for 5 months and the only thing that gets me through each month without a positive pregnancy test is knowing that I have a little more time left to be all about me and my husband :)
