Worn Out

Posted in blog 365, Buggle Bite, family, Motherhood tagged , at 7:42 pm by Momma

I am exhausted in every possible way. I am the very definition of the word. I am totally slacking on my Blog 365 and this is my half assed attempt to keep trudging forward.

The one good thing has been the weather. It has been absolutely beautiful since we got back. Still no where near warm, but today I totally down graded from jacket to fleece and was comfortable. Progress!

I just wish there was a day or time that I could say, “at least “blank” will be easier.” But unfortunately it is getting to be that time of year where the blank is replaced by “September!” And for some reason telling myself “At least September will be easier” isn’t very comforting!

Next week I have to attend my works annual spring training. BORING! The worst part? It means a full 40 hour work week. I know, I’m not getting much sympathy from a few of you…but it sucks just the same.

As you can clearly see my half full glass has runneth dry! Don’t worry, I’ll get cheery again in September! 🙄

We’re Home

We made it home last night. We were only twenty minutes late, which is pretty much “on time” when the plane stops any where else before landing in Sitka. The flight from Seattle was great! I carried the car seat on and Aidan slept the entire way to Ketchikan. I rarely bring the car seat on the plane with us because if he doesn’t want to sleep it makes the ride hell! He tries to escape and wiggle out of his buckle, then he ends up on my lap and I have less room because I am sitting next to a giant car seat. I had a feeling he would totally crash this time and after he RAN in the terminal for over an hour I knew he’d zonk out right after take off. And sure enough! Out like a light!

It was wonderful to sleep in my own bed last night! Aidan missed his bed too! He slept surprisingly well for having a crazy day. The best part? The AM shift was all Dad-Oh! I got to sleep in, relax, and mosey my way to the shower. Just what I needed!

We took a family nap this afternoon. Don’t you just love those? The weather was beautiful so after Aidan scarffed down a grilled cheese we took him outside to swing on his swing set. It was almost not even cold out…almost! Tonight we had dinner with friends and now it’s almost time to sleep again! I can’t think of a better way to spend the day! 😛

If all things go according to plan we should be able to come home tomorrow. We are very excited, even though I hear it is snowing! 😡

I don’t have much to say other than I am tired and ready to sleep in my own bed!

Until then, I will post a few pictures of the cutest toddler I know, especially for his Dad-Oh who misses him like crazy!

Seattle Aquarium

Yesterday we met up with some friends and spent the morning at The Seattle Aquarium. Aidan had fun playing in the touch tanks and gnawing on a fake octopus tentacle.

Woodland Park Zoo

We took advantage of the Emerald City’s first sun sighting in 45 days by enjoying the Woodland Park Zoo. The sun is shining bright and it was a wonderful day to enjoy the animals. The only draw back? Apparently, EVERYONE else in the greater Seattle area had the exact same idea! We waited over half an hour just to get our tickets, or just enough time for Aidan to conk out in the stroller!

Sleepy Head

If I remember correctly this wasn’t the first time you took a siesta at the zoo! Only this time you woke up to see a few of the sights.

Zoo Baby

Aidan never got excited over any of the animals. He just liked being outside in the open with the sun shining down on his casperness.


Tomorrow we will be occupying a bit of our time at the three story Old Navy. Yes, folks you heard me right! A THREE STORY OLD NAVY! Or for lack of better words, “The Mecca!”

The Sun!
