If you remember I posted a few days about about some of my irrational fears and one of them was that someone will try to break into the house while I am home with Lucas by myself. Well. Today Lucas and I are in the living room when I hear the UGA fight song music start playing. Cue fear stricken panic. I completely freeze until the music stops. When it stops I muster all of the courage I can and I grab Lucas's bat and I go towards the back of the house saying "Hello?". Lucas follows and yells WHO'S IN HERE?! Obviously we never found anyone but I was still freaked out. Thinking someone is hiding somewhere in the house and their cell phone just went off. After I thoroughly check the house I go back into the living room. About ten minutes later it happens again so I follow the sound this time, instead of sitting frozen. This time I find the culprit!
It was a gift bag that when you open it it plays the fight song. Yep.

Do you have any irrational fears? Or even something that's not completely irrational but kind of ridiculous for you to spend your time worrying about?
I do. I have a few actually. Some of them aren't ridiculous but one of them is totally ridiculous. I tend to be an anxious person as it is, but I've noticed since I had my heart walking around outside of me, it's gotten worse. When I first had Lucas I worried about Lucas getting a terrible illness, or disease. I swear every time he coughed I rushed him to the Dr. because "Do you know how easy it is for infants to get pneumonia?!" Yep. Not kidding. I also feared he would be diagnosed with a childhood cancer or some other terminal or life threatening diseas. I actually still worry about that, but not as much as I used to.
Also, I fear that while I'm doing the stay at home mom gig someone will break into the house. I've been told that's a pretty common worry. My doors are always locked. Always.
Are you still with me? If so let me warn you, this is where it gets weird. I have a weird fear that I'm going to get a food born diseas. Actually let me clarify that. I fear I'll die or get extremely ill from eating under cooked meat. So much so that sometimes when I cook, I can't get myself to eat my own food. I normally end up eating cereal for dinner. Also I only buy meat in bulk and seperate it when someone else is home to seperate it. I can't do it. Ugh Ew. And oh my gosh ya'll when I cook with meat I wash my hands and my counters at least five times throughout the process.
I know. It's so weird. I can't explain it. I know it's completely irrational, but even sitting here writing this blog about it has my stomach in knots.
So tell me, am I the only odd ball out there? Please tell me you have dome odd fears as well!

1. I'm so sleepy. But what's new, right?
2. Lucas is doing something weird. He stopped eating lunch at school. He comes home every day with a full lunchbox. I asked him why he's doing that and he simply said " I don't get hungry until later." Alright then.
3. Atlanta has food trucks, and I've wanted to try them forever now. I'm so excited because the trucks are coming to my side of town tomorrow night!!
4. Why does publix always have the best commercials? At thanksgiving and mothers day. I just teared up watching one!
5. I cooked dinner tonight and no one ate it.
6.mommas, have you heard that Taylor Swift song Ronan? If not, don't. It'll haunt you. Sometimes when I've sucked at parenting, and I've spoken to harshly to lj I think about that song and think geez Heather! You shouldn't loose patience with him! You should savor every moment!
7. My seeing machine is currently broken. Chris broke the needle off. And I was in the middle of a project!
8. Chris has taught our dog to jump, sit, and lay down- all with hand motions! Pretty cool. (except who the f... Teaches a beast of a dog to jump up?)
9. I used to hate hipster glasses but I'm sad to admit, they are growing on me.
10. How could anyone not love The Voice?
11. Lucas and I painted pottery together. We each did a plate a bowl and a cup. He insists on drinking out if the cups, and that includes taking them places with us.
12. I asked Lucas today if he wanted me to have a baby and he said "no. I want to be your only baby."
13. I could never ever pull off white pants. Like ever.
14. Or red lipstick.
15. But I can rock some yoga pants!
16. That was a joke.
17. Alright. That's enough. Go hug your babies a little tighter tonight. Your life is good :)

this sweet nugget. Lucas started T-ball and he loves it so much! It's so cute and makes my heart happy. The entire walk onto the baseball field for practice he kept saying " I love T-ball!" Actually while he laid on the field in that one picture he said it again. Watching a bunch of three year olds try to figure out baseball is quite possibly the best thing ever. seriously ya'll if you're ever feeling down go find a baseball field and watch the babies play. So if you're looking for home renovations or fancy vacations don't come here. But if you're looking for a simple little life where a woman in her 20's takes motherhood day by day I'm your girl!!

I'm not even sure how to start this blog because mainly I'm blogging to complain. There is a part of it that'll be happy and thankful though. So let's just jump right in, shall we?
I have been so drained. I have no idea why. I'm working a new schedule at work which is Mon-Fri 7:30-12:30. That might have something to do with it. I don't get my Monday morning cuuddle and relax session with Lucas now. On top if that when I come home I try to clean the house really well. You see Chris and I made the decision for me to quit my job. My last day isn't until may 18th though so I'll have the Mon-Fri schedule until then. But in order to prove to Chris this is the right decision I've been trying to keep the house super clean and tidy and coupon and cook every night. You know, do my womans work! Lol. Jk. But for real, I want him to be happy that I'm staying home so I'm trying to make the house a soft place to land, so to speak.
On top of that I've been stressed about opening my sewing business. I am so motivated and so excited about it, but I don't want to open it until I feel 100% ready and good. I won't sell a product I'm not proud of. But getting there takes time and money for practice supplies and as you know, we aren't made of money. One day this week I was feeling particularly discouraged and I sat down, grabbed my phone and opened the instagram app. And this truely inspiring and encouraging woman named laracasey posted a picture of a handwritten note. And all it said was you can do it! God did I need to see that right in that moment. I really love when the internets lift people up and do good. It's so rare.
On top of that Chris's car decided to go on the fritz about two weeks ago. Dang thing. We thought it was the transmission that went bad but thankfully it was a sensor. I say thankfully because it was a lot cheaper. While we were deciding what to do about the car Chris's parents let him use their truck to get to and from work. Which was great because his kept shutting down mid drive. Sounds safe, huh? Just thinking about the money that was going to have to go into the car stressed me out. And did you read that part about me quitting my job? Yeah.
Thankfully I've been blessed with some truly amazing in-laws and they took care of the car. I've said it a million times, but I honestly don't know how I got so lucky with them. We can't thank them enough for helping us with it.
Then. On top of that. I have just felt blah for about a week and a half. Just tired and nauseas and just not good. (Let me stop you now, no I'm not pregnant. ) I think when I feel overly stressed my body just shuts down. So on top of feeling completely stressed over some pretty important things I just haven't felt good either. I'm tired ya'll. Just tired.
Oh and the best part... I've had nightmares all week so I'm not sleeping well either. The devil needs to realize I'm not giving up get on out of here. Go harass and drain someone else.
So as I Lay in bed blogging from my phone, because i can't summon the energy to go get the computer, with a headache from h-e-double hockey sticks, I think, of every encouraging cliche I can....every storm runs out of rain. And you can't have a rainbow without rain. Blah blah. I know I won't feel this drained forever but hopefully I'll start feeling more relaxed soon. I can't take much more of this drained feelings. It's exhausting ya'll.
I feel like this picture shows how I feel.
