The Death of a Mind or Maybe it's just Lost

Today I came to the realization that I have unfortunately grown up. I can remember when I was younger and I would play with my doll house and act out these intricate mini dramas with the characters. Everyone was a player and everyone had their own back story and I had created that. I'm sure that if I took my dolls out today I could go through each one and tell you their backgrounds. However today while playing cars with my daughter my imagination only went as far as cars make noise (vroom) and the wheels go round. I don't know about you but I do believe that some would call my mind pedestrian.

Fun Fun Fun

I am so excited. Is anyone else excited? Because I am. Did I mention that I am excited? I get to go shopping Monday for clothes for the kids. You wouldn't think that this simple thing could make me so excited but I just love buying clothes for them. Especially cute ones at absolutely great deals.
I am also excited because we have a dinner date with a couple in our Ward. We don't know them very well but this is a great opportunity to change that.
You would also think that part of my excitement is due to tomorrow being Valentine's Day but then you would be absolutely wrong. Kevin and I decided that we aren't going to celebrate Valentine's Day. Instead maybe Lydia and I will make and decorate cookies or something. In the last few years I have become very anti-holiday, I'm not sure why.
Monday Michael took me with him to go clothes shopping. He's got a hot date with his new honey and he wanted to pick out something special for tomorrow. I think we came up with a winner. He got a nice pair of jeans, a very light tan button up shirt, and a blueish argyle sweater to go over it all. Maybe I'll have to have him take a picture and you can see the handy work.

Closed Lids and a Calm Soul

It has been a long day. Having a clingy baby is tough, very tough. As I type now though both of my babies lay sleeping angelically in their beds and the calm that comes from knowing that they are both resting is remarkable. And as I gentely lay Caleb down, whispering 'thank you.' toward the heavens because he actually stay asleep a relief sets in and I can wrap my mind around my life. Oh sweet sleep.

Finally a minute to sit down and clear my head. Caleb has just been so clingy the last few days. I can't be sure but my thought is that it's because Kevin and I both got sick at the same time and we had to call the in-laws in for help. I think that maybe Caleb is scared that we won't be around again.
We have had a very uneventful week for the most part. We didn't vote yesterday, I know "Bad Becca!" With the system set up the way it is sometimes it doesn't even feel like our vote counts at all.
I'm not exactly sure why I'm even bothering writing on a blog that 1. no one reads or 2. that there's nothing to write about. I'm just another boring house-wife. Not even a June Cleaver because compared to me, June is interesting.
