I'm sitting on my couch, watching The Bachelor and eating some cookies & cream icecream.  Frank has to get up for work at 4 o'clock a.m. so he is already in bed.  Cooper went to sleep at 7:15 tonight but has already woken up twice since then and it is only 8:10.  The past few nights have been like this and I blame that little blasted tooth that is trying to pop through. 

I am sleep deprived, but happy.  I am reflecting on the past six months, as Cooper will be turning six months old tomorrow at 3:23 p.m.  I am feeling nostalgic, I can't believe how quickly time has passed.  It's funny how it does that, time. 

I feel like I am about to have so much on my plate.  I opened up my Etsy shop this morning, which is so nerve-wrecking, add on top of that all of the money I've spent (that I don't have) buying all of the necessary materials to do this and I'm a basket case. Failure is always looming, it seems, and I so badly want this to succeed.  I also start school tomorrow, which means I have to leave Cooper for five hours.  I'm really not ready for this.  

My house feels like a mess constantly and I'm ready for my hair to be long again.  The Monster gave us so much junk (literally) for Christmas and I have nowhere for it, yet I can't get rid of it.  I keep saying I'm going to do another post on her, an update of sorts, but then I never do. I really need to though because nothing about her has changed. 

So currently, life is life and I'm assuming it will stay that way.  I'll take it though because I have my baby and my family and in the grand scheme of things, life is good. 


  1. Congrats on the Etsy shop. That is such a big step. I'm sending you good vibes and hopes of uninterrupted sleep!

  2. Six months?!? It feels like just last week I was checking your blog every half hour hoping for an update!
