Baby Shower Filled Sensational Sunday

6 Comments 972 views

Today wasn’t a Sensational Sunday in the traditional sense but it was still fabulous all the same. I traveled to NY for my cousins baby shower. She’s due in January, me in April. It’s exciting even though we aren’t the closest of cousins. We just haven’t spent much time together since we were kids but I miss her dearly.

The shower was a blast. I saw some relatives I haven’t seen in ages, hung out with my mom and had some alone time in the car. I missed my boys but it was still a good day. I drove home this evening getting home around 10PM (it’s a 4 hour drive.)

Of course I came home to a mess. I have not been blessed with the most domestic of husbands. Although, he did do a load of laundry and took Little Man to the park. So he gets an A for effort. ;)

Instead of freaking out, I went upstairs, got on my PJs, washed my face and brushed my teeth. It was all I had in me to do and that’s ok. Sometimes you really can only do what you can do. Right? Why beat ourselves up about it? It’s the whole Do What You Can When You Can thing and today all I could do was brush my teeth. :)

I’ll be back tomorrow with some big news on the pregnancy update!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    That sounds wonderful… Can I just say that I’m desperate to hear the news? Even though I don’t “know” you I still feel like I do and am so excited for you! Post the video early ;)

    I used to freak out and think it was the end of the world….now that the kids are much older (one is out of the house at college); I don’t care at all about messes and such. Not that the house is dirty or anything. It gets cleaned. I do what I can when I can……
