Because of this...
I have been a stay at home mom for a week. Literally. I have STAYED AT HOME. I've escaped a couple times to run, but it's about to drive me crazy. I can't go take a walk. I can't let the dog out for long. I couldn't even leave to get decent pictures. It's hard to take a picture to represent the massive amount of snow--there's just so much. Every picture I take is just white.
And I've enjoyed being home with Finley. (Especially because he's adjusted his sleeping schedule... he got up at 9:50 today! Hooray for sleeping in!) We're playing a lot and practicing walking, but I do not know how real stay at home moms do it. I'm about to go nuts. I haven't actually gotten dressed in real clothes in a week, and am eating like I am on vacation. I need some sort of plan to replace the current one: check my email and reader, feed myself, feed Finley, have a snack, play with Finley, eat Goldfish, nap... repeat. And repeat. Again.
I would love to be able stay home all the time, but we can't financially make that work at this point. Hopefully, when Finley gets a little sister we will be able to. But right now? Staying at home is driving me craaazy. However, I'm assuming its a quite a bit more tolerable when you don't actually have to stay at home.
I think I have taken a million pictures since last Thursday. Poor kid.
