And then the weekend was over…

The past week was a blur, what with more doctor’s visits and Enzo staying home with his daddy a couple of days.  Nothing serious, just a little pink eye and some tummy issues.


You know the day is going well when you get texts like this:

“The little stinker got to try cat food this morning. He was not impressed.”

Naturally he’s been a little cranky, so we didn’t do a whole lot this weekend, but did have to vacate the house for a showing on Saturday.  I’ll be glad when we sell, if only so we don’t have to worry about showing the house anymore and needing to pack up the kiddo when he isn’t necessarily feeling like it. Things are looking good with the house, though. We’ve had some good showings with decent feedback, so we’re staying positive. It’s always stressful, though, knowing that once we sell we’re going to have to find something for ourselves as quickly as possible and nothing is staying on the market long right now.

So, we wait and see and who knows… maybe we’ll have good news soon.  In the meantime, it looks like Enzo will be turning 1 in the first home we bought, which is kind of neat in a silly sentimental kind of way.  He won’t remember this place at all, but this house has seen a lot of firsts.


Game Time

First I have to just say… we don’t always spend all of our time in our pajamas like the pictures tend to show. Okay, that’s a lie.  We spend a lot of time in our pajamas and comfy clothes when at home. Meh.

Pajamas are just way more comfy, and when you’re chasing this guy around, you need to have room to move. :p

He actually just discovered curtains the other day. Considering his love of peek-a-boo, I’m surprised he didn’t find them sooner.


And here I am about the same age it looks like, enjoying the same game. :p


Peek-a-boo is also great when played around the kitchen island because you never know from which side a waiting parent will pounce on an unwitting child.


Let it also not be said that the Shoberg’s are wasteful.  Even Cuties that are going bad have a great second use!

And that’s all I’ve got.  You’re jealous of our exciting lives, aren’t you?

Spring Forward

So, not only do we spring forward in terms of time, but we’re springing forward into action in regards to our next adventure.  (How’s that for cheesy?)


This past weekend was especially busy because we had to clean the house and de-clutter, which meant renting a storage unit so we could clear up some room.  Why?  Our house is officially on the market… again. We decided to go with a realtor this time to avoid some extra stress.  We are keeping our options open and will be looking in both Minnesota and Colorado for our next home.  It’s always hard to leave stability behind, so we’ll see if we’re ready to take that leap or not.


In other events, Enzo ended up with pink eye, and when we took him in this weekend discovered he also has strep throat and an ear infection.  He’s also cutting 2 teeth – possibly 4 from the looks of things.

Also… daylight savings kind of sucks.  It thankfully hasn’t messed with Enzo’s schedule too much, but I’m having trouble getting enough sleep, and it doesn’t help that when the wee man is sick he doesn’t sleep as well.  I had to grab him last night and tried to shush him to sleep, but he was having way too much fun climbing on mom and dad to settle down right away. :p

Oh yeah… and I’m done with winter.  Thankfully the husband takes care of all the physical labor, though. 😉


Oh, March.

When the most exciting part of your weekend is going to Sonic (yeah, yeah, I’m supposed to be eating healthy… we are never near one, though, so cheating is allowed), there’s pretty much no arguing that your life is a little dull. We’ve been getting out and about and running errands, but not too much else.


Sometimes a little bit of nothing is kind of nice, though.  We’re going to do some spring cleaning this weekend and perhaps we’ll spend some more time in jammies.  In the winter, especially, you’ve got to have those days where you just don’t get out of your pajamas all day.


Thankfully it’s also March, which means we should be getting warmer weather soon… I mean, even 40 degrees would be nice.  It’s sad when 40 degrees is “warm.”  Since almost nothing else is going on, I should probably stop rambling.  Maybe I’ll go watch ‘The Neighbors’, which you should watch if you haven’t.  It’s so much more awesome than I thought it would be and is a new favorite!


Pinky, are you pondering what I’m pondering?

It’s March and the husband and I have been pondering a lot.  The neighbors across the street just sold their town home, and according to our Realtor, now is the time to sell…

Which means we have to make some decisions pretty quickly, and it really hasn’t been easy. We’ve made lists of pros and cons and somehow they still manage to come out kind of even.


Sometimes I think it’s a matter of being afraid of the unknown… it’s so easy to stay where one is comfortable, and even if the situation isn’t perfect, you at least know what to expect for the most part.

I’ve never enjoyed making big decisions. They stress me out and I worry that I’ll make the wrong choice.  It also doesn’t help that in this situation, as soon as we get close to deciding something will sway us back to the middle again and leave us second guessing what the right choice is. Like today… my 6 month review in my new position went well, so I get the second part of my raise.  I can pretty much guarantee you it’ll take me another 5 years or more to make the same amount if I leave this job.  However… it’s not really my ideal job, and I’m not as happy as I’d like to be, so is it worth the money?

It’s questions like this that make my brain want to shut down and not think about anything… procrastination for the win!  I know we have to make a choice, though… whether it be to stay or go; or for me to stay at a job that pays well, but isn’t really fulfilling in any other way or to stay at home.


I admit, I’m not good with change and I worry about making huge leaps into the unknown. As for Josh… I think he’s leaning more towards staying, but me… I don’t know. I look at it from a logical standpoint and an emotional one, and I truly don’t know what the right choice is.  I want what is best for our family, but I think I need to figure out what that really means. Is financial security more important or one of a handful of other things?

I think it’s Friday night and I’m going to think about it later.  I know it’s silly to wait for a sign telling me what to do, but holy crap that would make it so much easier, wouldn’t it?

In the meantime… maybe I’ll go give the cat some attention. He’s been exceptionally needy lately, and I really haven’t been giving him much in the way of affection. Besides, cat purrs are known to reduce stress!
