What's Up Wednesday.

Let's have at this. I have a few posts I wanted to write but I've got 15-20 tabs open all the time and am easily distracted right now. 

What we're eating this week:

My mom has done a bit of the cooking lately. She made meatloaf, which is my least favorite food in the entire world. Scott enjoyed it though. He knows he only gets meatloaf when one of our moms make it. So maybe once a year. Wells cried and spit it out, which proves he's my child. Scott said he's never seen anyone cry over meatloaf and he really should've hung around our house when I was little. I cried a lot on meatloaf night. 

What I'm loving:

Wells' imaginative play. 

What I've been up to:

Mostly picking up toys ^^^ . Also, procrastinating the most basic of household tasks (phone calls, mailing things, putting away dishes) while formulating a game plan for purging all baby clothes/gear we don't need and toys I don't want or need. Then I'm moving onto Excess Kitchen and Extra Decor (as the boxes are labeled). This is the first spring in 3 years that we haven't moved to a new house/state, so I am determined that we will not be hauling boxes of Unnecessary Things along on the next move. 

What I'm dreading: 

Going to the doctor next week. 

What I'm working on:

I bought a Bible in a Year plan. Haven't started it yet. It's here though. I was thinking to start May 1st. I wasn't feeling The Bible Recap this year. 

What I'm excited about:

Starting to work out again. I haven't decided if I want to actually go for a gym membership when there's so many at-home options. I think getting out of the house is important so I might look at a new gym here in town that has childcare. 

What I'm watching/reading:

I am doing a re-watch of Breaking Bad. After watching Better Call Saul, you see things in BB that you don't notice the first time and/or don't make sense, originally. I get pretty analytical about it all. Also, I plan on digging into a re-watch of El Camino afterward. (You don't have to tell me how productively I'm using my time off work. I already know.)

I grabbed The Club as a daily deal on Amazon the other day, since I am one week into a 6 month wait for it at the library and all. 

What I'm listening to:

I listen to exactly 3 podcasts every day. Ben Shapiro, Matt Walsh, and Allie Stuckey's Relatable. Some days I don't get through all of them and it rolls over. 

What I'm wearing:


I actually have a planned post on a maternity/post-partum clothing hack, so I'm basically not wearing anything new or special as I navigate the first few months after baby. Jumping back into things that are impulse buys (because after 9 months of being pregnant and dreaming about regular clothes again, everything would be an impulse buy!) isn't a great strategy for me. 

Um, plus, have you seen the hideous things in the stores? I don't know what Target is thinking and I don't know why Old Navy is following suit. They are my go-to stores for summer clothes. In addition, I was out and about the last couple of days: there is a shocking number of crop tops to be found in the wild. WHY. Truly, even if I had a huge clothing need and the money burning a hole in my pocket, I don't know where I would shop. 

What I'm doing this weekend:

I kinda wanted to plant some flowers. But I might need to wait til post-Mother's Day. Isn't that the rule? It's still kinda cold here. 

What I'm looking forward to next month:

Finding some sort of routine and some sort of normal, whatever that may be. Also, packing up my classroom. I mean, maybe that'll be a lot of work, but time to close the book on school, you know?
