Whoa, Baby!

My baby girl is almost 6 months old. I can't believe how quickly this all really does go by! She's getting so big and learning so much. She is such a joy to be around and care for!

I feel so lucky that my husband and I are able to have our life the way we want it to be - with me at home taking care of our baby. I know not many couples are able to do this, and we are definitely making sacrifices to be able to. But we decided it was worth it to raise our family the way we want.

Cleaning Schedule

Since I'm getting back into the swing of being at home, I thought I would make a cleaning schedule to help keep myself organized (and sane). Plus, I really like to plan things, so making this pretty much covers those bases! Then I decided to make it into this pretty graphic to share with everyone, so that it might help someone else who is trying to get/keep their life in order.

F.Y.I.: Microwaves Don't Kill Ants

For the past few weeks or so, it's been a battle of me vs. sugar ants. What a pain in the butt they are!! You think you've killed the entire trail moving along your countertop, but really, you didn't. When you do that, you shock to colony into splitting up and creating multiple, smaller colonies! Yuck! I'm pretty positive the ants had colonized in my kitchen wall since I could never find a nest outside in the yard.

The day I really lost it and surrendered to the professionals was a cheery, bright Friday morning. I woke up and headed downstairs to make breakfast. Now I don't even remember why I opened the microwave door in the first place (we rarely - if ever - microwave anything for breakfast), but I did, and to my disgust, found a pile of ants chowing down on the smallest splatter of grease I've ever seen. I almost screamed out of sheer frustration, but instead tried to take my own revenge on them. I slammed the door shut and turned the microwave on.
