I've been preparing for Tim's birthday on Friday. I had one gift already, a toy piano, and picked up smaller items on Monday (a couple books and a box of three Cars jigsaw puzzles - yep, he's graduated from board puzzles, though he still likes those). Last night I wrapped them and also got the Duplo Thomas & Friends set organised and wrapped. (I couldn't help myself, I was having fun putting together the engines and the stations! I'm sure Hubby can have fun trying to make the set look like the photo the first time around for Tim and then it's all about imagination.)

Yesterday was mostly a quiet day at home, doing laundry and taking care of other chores. I made the mistake of having hot chocolate before bed last night and I think it didn't do me good at 3 am - I was still tired, but too awake to get back to sleep. Lost about two hours. Ah well, I normally have great nights since Ben learned to sleep about 11 hours straight, so it probably won't hurt me too much if it's a one-time thing.

Despite the odd night, I felt pretty good by the time I'd had breakfast and dressed the kids, so we went out to tackle errands. Got a lot done and wore Ben down so that he had no trouble getting his first nap a short time after we got home. Maybe his nap reluctance lately has had less to do with potential teething than not being tired enough. LOL

I put up a plastic shelving unit in the laundry room so that I'll have more room for things out of Ben's reach. (Tim's, too, for that matter.) Still working out where I want things, but for now it'll do. I wonder if I could convince Hubby to build a linen closet by the dryer some year? That would really be handy! There is one large cupboard that's nice, but we've filled it with other things instead. Doh! And there's a portable cabinet that's almost too light-duty. I think with the new shelves (which could always be moved to the basement later) I'll move that cabinet to a corner of my bedroom and put writing supplies and such in it. They're currently jammed in my wardrobe...

I should wash the dishes so we can get out for a walk before Ben's afternoon nap. I need peppers for chicken fajitas tonight - forgot those while we were out, but we could use an excuse to exercise (despite Tim's slower pace, I'm still more active than if I stayed home).

The week is moving right along...not very exciting, though.

Wow, Tim's birthday already? It sounds like you got a lot done. I have those nights, when I don't eat enough protein, I wake up and can't sleep.


Lindy, we just had our 15th anniv. Congratulations!

All these baseball games are giving a little wiggle-room in the TV schedule. ;)
