So. Much. Baby jail right meow.

I hope you’ve done some exciting things this week that you’d be so kind as to graciously share with me because I’m serious — the highlight of my days usually involves a quick shower OR a quick 30-minute emergency sneak away trip to Pier 1, See’s Candies (I’ve eaten about two pounds of chocolate this month), Marshalls, Old Navy or Target, during which time El Hub will watch the baby, because those stores are close to home.

Those little daily jaunts, plus the MBB interns and Netflix, have been my only breaks, as of late, when I’m not attending to Connor Claire.

It just gets a tad monotonous is all, and by “tad,” I mean ridiculously monotonous, LOL!

Thank goodness for the MBB interns. Those ladies are incredibly talented, aren’t they? Have you been following their posts? These have been some of my faves…

Their styles and perspectives are all so different, too. It’s refreshing.

In other news…it’s giveaway time. πŸ™‚

Every day is a new adventure around here. Just when I think I’ve figured something out, like a good routine to get Connor Claire fed and soothed to sleep for a couple of hours at a time, nope! — something new happens.

She was so fussy last night. Not even Uncle Tabby’s amazing nanny services could soothe her. She was incorrigible… Now watch her sleep all day long today, LOL!

Rise and shine, morning glory! Happy Caturday!

That reminds me… I bet you probably realize by now that yesterday was April Fool’s Day. Sadly, this means that the grand opening of the new Novato Cat Cafe & Cosmetics has been delayed. πŸ™‚

In other news, I got out of the cave/house for two whole hours yesterday, and it was glorious! My parents visited and offered to watch Connor, so El Hub and I sneaked away to the mall. We got coffee, See’s candy and window shopped like real grownup people! It was the most exciting thing I’ve done in a month.

I cannot believe it’s Easter weekend! I swear, I remember driving around to look at Christmas lights. Seems like that was just a couple weeks ago…

Rise and shine, morning glory! Despite my unreadiness for it, it is almost Easter. Are you going to church? Brunch? Are there mimosas in your future? Inquiring minds want to know.

Since this is Excitement Central over here, I’ll be spending Easter with a baby and a breast pump and my butt glued in a Pier One floral-printed chair (which Tabs mistakenly claims as his own) while re-watching Dawson’s Creek on Hulu.

Yup, it’s a thrill a minute!

Have a wonderful holiday, my friend. Good luck in the Easter egg hunt, and please save me a few jellybeans. πŸ™‚

“Mrow!”

tabs-diva-cat-diamonds“Yes, buddy. I’ll make your food.”

“Mrrrrrrrrow!!”

“OK, buddy. Hang in there. Mommy just needs to finish feeding Connor.”

“MEEEEEOWWW!!!”

“Buddy. Please, you have to be patient. Connor needs food too.”

Suddenly Tabs takes off like a rocket down the hall and straight down the stairs at top speed, his tabby claws digging noisily into the carpet. No longer able to see him, I can still hear him tearing sh*t up as he runs circuits around the living room, leaping off of the furniture in a hunger-fueled rage.

“Tabs, what are you doing!?” I shout. “Why are you being so crazy right now?”

*Sigh!* This is how my mornings are right now, LOL! Tabs is very patient around Connor as long as it doesn’t interfere with his schedule for lurvies or gravy. πŸ™‚

Rise and shine, morning glory. Happy Caturday. How was your night?

My nights sort of blur into my days right now. That’s the phase we’re in over here. Connor Claire is now just about two weeks old, and she’s doing her baby thing. Every once in a while she’ll sleep a block of four hours at a time, but it’s usually between two and three hours at a time, so either El Hub or I will get up to feed her, burp her, probably also change her, and then try to get her to go back to sleep, which is sometimes easier said than done.

It’s an adventure, LOL!

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya! Rise and shine, pal o’ mine. Happy Caturday!

Question for you: when will it stop raining? That’s what I’d like to know. We’ve gotten so much rain this week that the neighborhood is greener than I’ve seen it in years. There’s stuff blooming out there that doesn’t usually bloom here, like, get this: about a month ago I was about to throw out a few potatoes that had started to sprout in their bag in the kitchen, but El Hub said, “No! I want to plant them outside…”

And, you know, that was weird, but boys will be boys, so I said “Um…OK?”

Anyway, he took them outside and buried them somewhere…

I come to find out yesterday that they’re growing huge! So now we have potatoes growing in our front yard. If this had been another year, like last year, I don’t think that would have happened, because I can’t remember it raining once all through last February or March.

In other news, Happy St. Patrick’s Day week! πŸ™‚ Will you be having green beer? If you are, please have a sip for Connor Claire, who happens to be one eighth Irish.
