List Day

I'm totally starting to get a 'flow' with this whole parenting thing. Since I'm on a roll with getting stuff done today, I'll throw my past week into bullet form:
  • Valentine's Day! We went to an AWESOME dinner at Burton's Grill. Good martini's, awesome steak, and 3 hours together without Hulk. It's totally different to be eating without someone holding a baby.
  • Day Care. I dropped off all the paper work for Hulk's first day at daycare... I'm still trying to figure out what I think of all that. On one hand - glad to have a job to go back to, but on the other hand - loving being with my little man.
  • Dinner guests! 2 nights in a row, I cooked for other people! Before going through IVF, we used to be the 'dinner party people'. We would often throw dinner parties for 4 couples or more. Doing that again made me feel totally normal. And the fact that both dinner were totally tasty was a plus.
  • Sleeping! The past 3 nights, Hulk has slept 8+ hours (last night, 9). I feel that I have regained about 20 IQ points with a full night's sleep.
  • Shopping! Today, I went to the mall and got myself a few things that I've wanted for a while. I figured it was ok to get myself some 'going back to work' presents. I got a new wallet, some stuff from Lush, and a panini maker! Hurrah.
  • Baking! I used to bake bread every once in a while, but I was afraid to even try with Hulk in the picture. I baked some awesome bread on Saturday, and today, I'm thinking of trying English Muffins. I've never made those before - so we'll see.
  • The truck. Aaron is going to give the check and pick up the truck today. I'll be glad to have that drama OVER. Anyone want to buy a 2002 Max.ima?

I think that is everything for now - off to give those English Muffins a whirl.

Holy molly! I'm so jealous! Even when the girls sleep 8+ hours I feel like I can't get crap done.

I miss cooking, and dinner parties, and shopping! lol

Dining out? Dinner parties? Bread baking? I'd say that you've more than got the parent thing down. You've mastered it. You're kind of my hero today.

Thanks so much for the comment on my blog...I love ICLW!

I just caught up on some of your story and it is nice to know that I'm not crazy for trying to be positive with my slow growing follies!
