I did not fall off the face of the Earth

We've been busy and we aren't sleeping a whole lot, so I haven't been blogging much. Lame excuses, I know.

In January, we've been to three birthday parties and our Baby Play Group met at a place that qualifies that day as a party too. It was party-esque. I thought about taking the kids to Disneyland last week, but they had (and still have) sniffly snotty noses so we scrapped the outing.

I'm glad we didn't go - can you believe I just said I'm glad we didn't go to Disneyland! Gasp! Shocking, I know! I love going! But, I've been just exhausted lately. Neither one of the girls has been sleeping well. When one goes to sleep, the other one wakes up. Usually by morning, I wake up smothered under two kids and a dog. Sleepless nights are getting old very fast. I'm thinking about putting everyone to bed, and then I'll go camp out in the van in the driveway. I won't hear them and they won't find me. Hmmm... I might be onto something.

We got a Wii for Christmas and I'm trying to play that as much as I can. Which is to say, I'm trying to play Wii without kids clinging to my legs, jumping around in circles around me, singing and whining for attention... I've logged in 5 hours so far this month. It's not as easy as it sounds! I love the exercise and the games are fun, but the biggest challenge is getting some time to play!

I took another step toward "Being Green". I bought some reusable grocery sacks for my daughter for Christmas to stuff in her package, and found out that they really are kinda handy! So I went out and got some for myself too. Now I have a sack of sacks to use and reuse for groceries. Tricky part will be remembering to take them along when I go to the store. I'm not giving up on plastic and paper grocery sacks, but I do tend to accumulate a ton of them in a short amount of time. I do reuse them, I need them for sacking up stinky diapers and lining the bathroom trash cans and scooping up dog doo-doo. I usually pick through my giant sack of plastic sacks for the Target bags - those are the best! I always seem to have a lot more plastic sacks than I need, so I'll try to be trendy and use these green bags once in a while. I didn't get them in green though, I got them at the Disney store and they are all pink with princesses! Of course! If I'm going to turn into a hippy, I'm going to do it carrying pink princess bags!

Gosh, I thought I didn't have anything to blog about!

We have those "green" grocery bags, use them quite often because the store gives you .05 for each bag that is used off your total. I have two colors, green for the local store in town and blue for Wal-Mart.

I have a bunch of random reusable bags. I usually forget them in the car or at home though!
