MISSING MAUI

Of course I knew I would miss Maui and the sunshine (even though they have had more than the normal amount of rainfall this year). But I have to say I'm enjoying the crazy busy chaotic days playing with a three year old and snuggling a two week old. 

The condo here in Oregon is S-L-O-W-L-Y getting unpacked and organized. But I've resigned myself to big time compromising until they return to their own apartment. Just four more weeks .... Maybe six but Kate is healing so quickly this time.

If you can take your dishes to the sink ... Why not put them IN the dishwasher?  If you open a closet door or cabinet or drawer ... Just close it when you are finished?   Yep ... There IS a trash can in every room ... Use them.  Each bathroom has plenty of wet towel hanging devices ... No need to leave them on my laminate floor.   Use the last of the toilet paper? Put on another roll on. And so on. 



New mommies need to be spoiled.  Especially after a c-section!!  I'm glad I'm able to do it!

  2. Snuggling a new baby is a good tradeoff, though. Congratulations to you and your family.

    1. AND ... a Honda Odyssey grandmother mobile!! Such luxury within the speed limit. I named her Honu the Honda (turtle in Hawaiian ... because I always drive the speed limit!!!)

  3. LOL I hope your loved ones read this blog! So much is new. Even with the sweet bundle of joy, a tiny bit of 'normal' is sweet, too. Hanging in with you, dear awkward widow : -)

    1. I give myself a "time out" in my room every day. And I've been getting out alone once a day. Sometimes just to the grocery but HEY! It's all good ... and so temporary.
