This past week I feel like I've been in recovery mode. Our vacation was fantastic, but it wasn't exactly the reprieve from life that I though it would be. Vacations, at least our family vacations, tend to be fun-filled, exciting & activity packed-- relaxation doesn't ever seem to play much of a part.
So, this week its been really hard to focus on, or want to do, well, anything. Blogging, work, housework, tiny humans... whatever, I just want to sleep & read books all day. I guess if you count avoiding all those things & whining about not accomplishing them as activities, then I really accomplished a lot! In short, me = bum.
For whatever reason today I finally awoke from my post vacation slumber and became a functioning(relative term) human! Hooray! We actually have been doing quite a bit (more than sleeping & reading) this past week and I did some photo documenting to prove that, yes, I did in fact put on more than just pajamas this week... I may have even utilized my brain.
We went to the Street of Dreams in West Linn. The houses were great, don't get me wrong, but why build huge houses, with such detail and expensive amenities, in a suburban neighborhood on tiny lots? These houses would make me die from envy, if the neighboring homes weren't like 5 feet away from them. It was still fun looking at such opulently decorated million dollar homes and pretending that one day (after you win the lottery) you could totally have this 15' X 20' closet, or two separate laundry rooms that are both bigger than your current kitchen, or even that elevator! Who even uses stairs when they're that rich anyway, right?
And we converted this little nook in our stairway, to his reading/ spy on the neighbors area.
I made this pillow case:
We had a garage sale. Note to self: garage sales are not fun. Both Matt and I have never had a garage sale and were pretty excited to sell some stuff/ make some monies... turns out you just sit a lot, haggle everything down to $1 & are left with a ton of leftovers. I don't much like craigslist, but it's way easier than this garage sale business.
This weeks goal: be better about blogging consistently so I don't make such a hodge-podge post. Also, more doing, less complaining :)
