- transitioning Ethan to a "big boy bed", AKA a twin mattress on the floor. Overall it is going well, but he likes/wants/needs someone to lay with him for a few minutes to help him settle down. We've been transitioning to shorter and shorter times, but putting him to bed is a bit more time-consuming.
- Cooking! In the past few weeks, I've tried a lot of new recipes, including fajitas, quesadillas, Mexican rice, refried beans, wheat bran muffins, and yogurt. I think the yogurt deserves its own post, so more on that later. But we've managed to only eat out twice in the past two weeks, which is a huge accomplishment. It's been time-consuming to pack myself 2 small meals to eat at work, Ethan's lunch to eat at his "grandparents", plus remembering to make my mocha so I don't wind up at Starbucks. No wonder I'm tired.
- Organizing. Well, trying. *sigh* I'm almost at the point where I want to donate the contents of my house to Goodwill and start over. How is it that junk just seems to multiply exponentially?!
