Slo-Mo Sunday

I've decided to participate in NaBloPoMo for this whole month and, um, here it is day two and I'm like... what to write what to write.

So, we fell back an hour last night and I am really feeling it. Longest day ever. But in a good way. We take our Sundays easy. Went on our walk - we ran into Leo the neighbor cat and he followed us home. He's still here. Did some cooking for the days ahead. Boxed up a corner of the house. Policed candy consumption.

Jeff heads out of town to his new office for the first part of the week and we are already starting to find a rhythm in the midst of the chaos in an odd sort of way. The days seem to be better- I'm more up than down this week. I've hired help for the yard and house cleaning and so that's two less things to concern myself with. I need to buy more paper plates though because the dishes are relentless. And don't think I haven't seriously given some thought to hiring an Alice to come stay with us.

I got a new phone but I haven't had much of a chance to really get to know it yet. I'm happy that it doesn't have a broken screen and can just make calls and texts. I was playing around with the slo-mo feature on the camera and captured Buddy aka Jon Hammy cleaning his adorable hamster face. I originally thought it would be great to start posting a little video/interview of the kids every Sunday, or the first Sunday of every month, but I guess we'll just start with the pets.


  1. That video! So cute! What kind of phone did you get? If I show this to my kids they will just want another hamster... ;)

    1. I got the iPhone 6. I hadn't upgraded since the 4s and smashed the screen. I don't even know how many I've been through so I'm so nervous handling this new one!


  2. Ooh I like the idea of an Alice. :)

  3. I love the video. That was super cute. Although I still don't want a hamster ;)

    I would LOVE to hire an Alice. Oh my gosh that would be amazing.


Your comment is gonna totally make my day!
