Normally, on Tuesdays, I post a “Let’s All Watch the Bachelor” post, but I am single parenting this week, and nothing is really business as usual. My wonderful husband (who is so wonderful, and helpful, and supportive, and this was really fun, but you can come back now!!!), is in New York this week for work, which leaves me, here, doing the 24 hours-7 days a week parent routine for the next 4 more days. The thing about it is, I am also a Mom to two chocolate labradors, so after just a day of this, I am already exhausted. I made a lot of plans this week with friends to help pass the time, and I am doing my very best to keep a smile on my face. That would be easier if Kinsey wasn’t a teething mess, but you know what, this is Mommyhood, so I will do it somehow.
I did watch the Bachelor, and I’m sort of happy I did not live blog that, because it was really boring in general other than Desiree’s hometown with her gangster brother. That guy was out of control, and I found myself guessing what his issues were rather than actually paying attention to all of the drama. Substance abuse? Prison time? He made me nervous. So, if you watched (or didn’t), Desiree went home proclaiming that Sean made the wrong choice. She will probably be the next Bachelorette, because America likes her, and we all feel bad that her brother ruined it for her. Who else is surprised that Lindsay is still there? What the trash, right?! That hot drunken mess somehow used her wedding dress charm on Sean, because he for some reason adores her. It is confusing. I’m pulling for Catherine, I think. AshLee is sweet, but she seems a little intense, and might have some emotional issues that make her just a little bit crazy. This might not be her time. Tonight is the “Sean Tells All” special, which they have never done before. I’m sort of excited to hear him talk about Tierra. Even after that girl is gone, we can’t get enough of her sparkle. Hopefully, I’ll be back to my regular live-blogging the Bachelor schedule, next week, after my life settles.
In non-Bachelor news, next week is Kinsey’s first birthday! I’m excited to share with you all the details of her party. I’ll save it for next week, but it is going to be adorable! And, my Mom is coming (assuming my sister does not go into labor. We are praying those twins stay put for 2 more weeks)!
That’s all for now. I’m still here, just busy trying to hold onto my sanity. Though, I could be 34 weeks pregnant with twins, and be chasing a 3 year old and almost 2 year old around…my sister always brings a bit of perspective
4 MORE DAYS!
