About Me

My photo
Wife to Sean, police officer and carpenter. Mom to Maeve, 5 year old fashionista who happens to have an extra chromosome. And 1 year old Michael, future Steeler and ladies man. This is my attempt to share the behind the scenes of a real housewife who idolizes Martha Stewart, follows in the family footsteps in the art of sewing, navigates the world of special needs and tries to keep her head above water.

Monday, Monday

What does a Pittsburgh housewife do on a Monday you ask? Let's see...

Get up at 6:50AM and realize it is still dark outside,so you can't possibly get out from under the 2 blankets and 1 quilt to go out and run in the 10 degree weather.

7:20AM is now light out. Get up and get Princess Butterball who has been up since before 6:00AM. Go potty, plop her in bed with Daddy and then put on about 3 layers to go out and run in still 10 degree weather. At least it was not snowing.

7:40AM start uphill. Complete W2D1 of C25K, 2.32 miles with an incline increase of 118 feet. Got to love living on a hill. Always have and always will.

By 9:00AM, breakfast is eaten, showers taken, 2 cups of coffee drank, numerous emails sent out as I start planning for the 2010 Buddy Walk(r) in October.

Color with crayons, color with markers, dress dolls, have a tea party, play candy land, play soccer in the house, have a kazoo parade and then make lunch.

Maeve takes a nap, Sean leaves for work, and I now have about 7 loads of laundry to do, more emails to send, gotta hang on facebook, check out ebay and have another cup of coffee all in an hour and a half.

4:00PM start lasagna, read books, play doll house and watch the news. Eat dinner, do dishes, fold laundry, vacuum, have snacks and before you know it, it's 9:00PM and time for Maeve to go to bed. Get her school things ready, do more laundry, realize I didn't blog yesterday and here I am. Typing away and waiting for my Officer to come home.

Pretty boring huh? Nothing like the Real Housewives of Orange County or Atlanta or wherever. Nothing glamorous here. But I do have two people at home who love me to pieces! I think that is probably the best of all!
