I'm having one of those days...

Dustin is on his dream biking day and I know when he comes home tonight he's going to say "Kinsey, how was your day?" and instead of ruining his day by truthfully telling him how my day was- I'll just say "you don't want to know." Today is the kind of day where I wished my mom AND my sister were here. Not one or the other. Both.
Don't get me wrong, I really am fine. Both kids are sleeping so I thought I'd take advantage and vent on the blog. It's really very therapeutic! I'm feeling better already! Trust me- today doesn't even compare to Brita-gate 2004 (Ames you know what I'm talking about!)
So my errands didn't get done, and my laundry is piling up (thanks to Ronin and his 4 outfits before noon), and my house isn't as tidy as I'd like it to be. And so what if I just got out of the shower and brushed my teeth and it's almost 3:00pm. Worse things have happened!
You know- in the past 8 weeks I've: had a headache, a backache, been completely sleep deprived, TRIED to look cute (ie. done hair and makeup) 5 times, SUCCESSFULLY looked cute 3 times, lost some weight but then managed to find it all again (and then some), grown ginormous boobs (I'm sorry- I know this is a family blog- but I'm venting right now, remember) and have NEVER accomplished EVERYTHING I set out to do in one day...but you know what...

They are totally worth it, and I've never been happier!

PS- I blogged a much happier blog last night so don't forget to read it!


  1. If it makes you feel any better it's 7:30pm and I STILL haven't brushed my teeth or my hair all day. Not what a dental hygienist should be admitting. And now that the kids are in bed and I could actually shower, I'm too tired! And the sad thing is I didn't really think anything of it until I read your post, just another normal day for me! At least you recognize your lack of personal hygiene :).

  2. I so wish we lived closer so we could hang out all the time!!! Sorry you are having one of those days I seriously have these days more often then not. About the boobs mine totaly grew out of control with my 2nd baby. The good news/sad news is that they are smaller now then they were before I had kids weird hey? Kinda depressing but atleast I can go bra-less & thank goodness for wire/padding bra's!!! Sorry TMI hope you have a better rest of your weekend. miss you love you
    p.s. on a good note atleast you blogged twice in 1 week I am so impressed!!!!!!

  3. awwww! one of THOSE days eh?!!? not fun, but i'm glad you're still happy as a pig in mud (and i know it feels like that literally some days). you are so cute and so are your kids and nice work for hanging in there on one of those days and planning to not let it ruin dust's day!

  4. Oh are so sweet. I guess these days are just part of the fun eh? some day in the long run....Like when we're no longer on earth (!), we'll look back and laugh at the early days of managing 2 little ones. I remember it's hard!!
    BUT, you're doing GREAT!!
    come play with us some time,or we can come visit you too!!


  5. We ALL have those days Kinsey, no worries. And you look cute all the time.

  6. K-Rae, I hope that you are feeling better now. It helps to get those feelings off your (voluptous) chest -pardon the pun! I REALLY do wish I could be the "fairy godmother" (like you were to me) and make everything all better. I can't wait to hear the story.Nice touch to post the pic of you and the wee ones.Try to keep it all in perspective. Love you-we'll chat later Amy

  7. Oh my...I feel like a terrible friend! You should have CALLED me!!! Venting is good though..and I kinda know what it's like to not have your mom/sista around when you need them:)

  8. Ahhh you are so lucky to have little ones to rationalize your venting. I seriously have no excuse! You handle things so well. I hope your days get better. Call me if you ever need a break! I can hold babies and change diapers like a pro!
