K and I walking to visit Papa in Hingham. I'm not sure if it ever got above 20 degrees while we were there.
so much time as a single parent :) my husband let me have a break. I spent last weekend with 3 of my closest friends in Billings for an all girls + babies weekend. Reese and Addie's parents graciously allowed us to stay at their lovely home while they were living it up in Costa Rica. Even though our babes were with us, it was wonderful not to have any 5 year olds, 4 year olds, or 2 year olds around. When we put the babies down, that's where they stayed! It truly was glorious. Kale and Peter had a great time without me. Maybe we can start making this a regular thing! There were no pictures taken of any of the ladies there but there were a few of the kiddos and you can see them here.
In other news...
The tenant who was renting our condo never found a roommate so she will be moving out this weekend. Not exactly what we were hoping for. First of all, finding a new tenant in February is not cool. No one moves in winter! Second of all, we now have to lower our rent price. Granted, she was paying way too much for a 2 bedroom, but she agreed so we didn't argue. If you or anyone you know needs a place to live in Bozeman, check it out! Also, if anyone needs a great investment property, we will give you a screamin' deal. :)
When all of this is happening, it helps when you can get a good night's sleep so things aren't as daunting during the day. Ha! I wish that was happening for me. Joel and his sleeping is a conundrum. He won't sleep unless he is swaddled but breaks out of it all the time. During the night, he is waking up almost every 2 hours to be rewrapped and have his suckie put back in. Sunday night was my breaking point. Now, after his last feeding before bed, I set my alarm for 6 hours later and shut my door and turn on the fan. It might sound harsh but I need sleep! He wasn't eating so I knew he wasn't hungry. The hardest part is that I know he can go a long stretch at night because he has done it before. If only he could find his thumb or fingers, everyone would drink much less around here.
