Our first Playdate

P-nut & I had our first playdate last Saturday afternoon.  The girl that I met was fairly new to the area and didn’t know much about our city.  Her son is 10 mos. old so he is a little bit younger than p-nut.  But in a couple months they will be able to play with one another.  P-nut kinda played by himself, but every once and a while he would go up to the little boy and just stare at him like why aren’t you running around…lol.  He loves babies though.  She is a great girl and I enjoyed getting to know her.  It is just so great to finally meet someone that is a Mommy and roughly the same age as me.  I don’t have many friends outside of the net and none of them have babies yet so when the opportunity arose to finally meet one, I jumped at the chance.  I must admit I was little nervouse about meeting her for the simple fact that I am kinda shy until you get to know me, but I pushed my emotions aside and just “went with it”.  At first I was scarred that she wasn’t going to show.  But she eventually did and we had a great time.  She isn’t a stay at home mom like me so we are going to have to meet up on her off days which is alright with me because I apparently have all the time in the world.

I neglected to take photos of our new found friends.  I have “mommy brain” and sometimes just forget about stuff like that.  I told her the next time that we meet up to remind me to take some photos.  So if you were hoping to get some photos I’m sorry.  The best part about the whole thing is that she is relatively a hop, skip, and a jump away, so we didn’t have to drive forever to meet one another.  We practically live in the same neighborhood as one another.

On another note, my best friend just had her one year anniversary yesterday so here is a shoutout to her.  I hope ya’ll had a wonderful day and many more great years together.  Congratulations!

And so its Monday…I have some hella cleaning to do but I just can’t get motivated.  I cleaned and reorganized my closet last week, so that is done with and out of the way.  But I have 2 baskets of clothes to fold, hang, and put away; as well as 2 more baskets to wash & dry.  I hate laundry and I’ve come to the conclusion that I will never like doing laundry.  I’ve tried, believe me I’ve tried more times than I can count.  It is just one of those things that I despise doing.  I will do everything else before I attempt to get started on the laundry part of my day.  Then the clean laundry will sit in baskets on the couch for days just starring at me wondering when I’m going to fold it.  I suppose I hate laundry because he seems kinda counter productive to me.  As soon as I fold it and put it away it is back in the dirty clothes hamper and then cycle continues all over again.  I have this dyre need to plant.  It is practically spring here in my hometown and the look of vacant flower beds are driving me insane.  All last week it was in the 60’s and 70’s during the day but then we were having frost warnings at night.  It is supposed to be in the 80’s this week and 40’s to 50’s at night, so I think today is a fine day to go and price plants.  I want to get some flowering plants and also I was thinking of planting some edible plants.  Last time I was at the grocery store I bought some curly parsley to grow so that I would have my own little herb garden.  I’m thinking of getting some chives as well since I know I use those two herbs the most.  I have this idea to take a bird bath and plant some plants in it so that I would have plants on the ground and in the little bird bath.  I don’t know if I want to plant the herbs in the bird bath or just some flowering plants but I believe it will turn out real cute.  I don’t know what vegetables or fruits I could attempt to grow, I guess I’ll try to figure that out today whilst I’m out.

Well I suppose I better get off this thing and get myself ready.  *poof*

    Good idea ladymom. I saw these incredibly cute ground covering flowers that were sort of pink and white candystriped. I was wondering if I planted them in the birdbath if they would over flow and cascade down the sides. I also saw some mini pansey’s that were adorable.

    It’s always great when you can find a new mommy friend :)

    I like LadyMom’s idea for the birdbath planter. Put some ivy in there to overflow….that would be pretty. :)
