Soundoff: Tornado Touched Down in our Living Room

Argh!  Evelyn is letting you know how we are feeling this weekend with the state of our house.  Our house is packed with items that we need to clean, sort, put out, and store after shopping at the consignment sale.  Combined with the mess from swapping rooms last week, the family is going nuts with the chaos.  The hubby went out and bought a dozen storage bins to get us organized.  Between that and laundry we have been up to our eyeballs today with housework.

Tomorrow we are both working at the consignment sale to pay our dues for shopping early.  My hubby is pulling the morning security shift and I get the late evening sorting shift after the sale closes.  It will be interesting to see how Evelyn will take to her bottle when I’m gone for 5 or 6 hours.  So far she’ll only drink an ounce or two at the most, and that’s in between all the screaming she does.  Oliver has come down with a cold, so we expect tomorrow to be rough.

On the bright side, Evelyn is more vocal than ever.  Whenever she’s awake, she likes to squeal, coo, and make noise in general.  Oliver was an intense, quiet little dude in comparison. Evelyn loves, loves, loves looking at her brother.  She breaks out in a big grin whenever she sees him.  I can’t wait until she is old enough to interact with him.  I can already tell that he’s going to be her hero.

We are going to pull through this weekend somehow and I’ll be posting our consignment sale finds next week.  I want to do a little price comparison to show how much can be saved at these sales.  I also have a nice cheesy, meaty dip recipe to post in time for Super Bowl Sunday.  It’s an old family secret, so don’t tell my folks!

Hope you are having a great weekend!
