How is it that even when I get enough sleep, I'm still tired?

Anyway, no more whining. I'm tired of reading through my blog and seeing so much whining. Although, it shouldn't surprise anyone because I am the baby of my family. We babies love to whine. Just ask my siblings.

I've been thinking about what I could do for myself to feel productive and purposeful and not so much housewifey and mommish (not to be confused with Amish. I will not be doing anything to make myself feel Amish. Except for maybe that beard I've bee attempting to grow...). I think I may try to make things to sell on etsy. I love making things, but I can hardly ever think of anything to actually make for myself. I make a lot of stuff for other people, but I want to craft more! So, I think etsy is my answer.

However, I won't be able to do anything until we have a house. I desperately need more space, and we STILL (!!!) haven't heard back on the house we want. We do know that no one else has offered on it, though. It's looking good for us, but it could change any day. The not knowing drives me crizazy! I've been decorating every room in my mind. This is interesting to me because I've never really been much into decorating. I mean, we've lived in our trailer for three years, and I've never put paint up to cover the hideous fake wood paneling. It's more like sheets of particle board with wood panel wallpaper. Really, it's so ugly. But the idea of having a house has given me so much to think about, and I want to realize my ideas. I've never been very good at waiting, but I've had to wait for most major life events. Maybe Heavenly Father is trying really hard to teach me patience. I guess I'm just not a very good pupil when it comes to that.

Not a lot else is going on as of late. We've been starting to try solids with Ben, but he doesn't really seem to be ready yet. He's interested, but he still has the extrusion reflex. I'm not worried about it. He'll eat when he's ready. Until then, he just likes to play with the spoon. He's still gaining well and getting everything he needs from breastmilk, so his doctor isn't worried either.


  1. that is my most favorite picture of ben in the whole world.

  2. I haven't heard of etsy before, but it looks fun! I'll have to tell my sisters about it. They're totally into handmade bows and bags and quilts and afghans. I have the desire to make all those things, but lack the time and motivation. That's my excuse. :)

  3. Oh my gosh, he's darling!!!

    My husband tells me that my blog is nothing but an endless whine fest. Haha.

  4. Of course he is getting everything he needs. Look at those cheeks! Your breastmilk must be pure cream.

    Hey, let us know if you decide to create an Etsy shop. I'd totally buy stuff from you.

  5. Jamie, I'm not going to make you pay for anything I make. I'd make anything you wanted for free. I mean, that's why it pays to be friends with creative people, right?
