So, after a couple of glorious weeks, I’m once again home alone with the baby. No more sleeping in. No more hours of uninterrupted stretches of doing whatever the heck I want. It has been a rude awakening, my friends. Really rude.
Having said that, let’s get this week in review started. If I work quick maybe I can get this done and eat lunch before he weeks up.
It’s nice to dream.
We were supposed to drive back to Minnesota on Monday until Old Man Winter and Mother Nature put their heads together and decided it was National Piss Trish Off Day and dumped a bunch of snow on South Bend. So we stayed another day. And instead of using that time wisely, I just sat around in my pajamas eating Cheetos.

I highly admire people who can sleep anywhere. And I thank them for not waking up while I stand next to them holding a baby and taking their picture. That would be awkward.
I had the life-changing pizza again. I’m happy to report it wasn’t a fluke. It rocked my world even harder the second time around. I might have got the large and been eating it for breakfast lunch and dinner ever since.
We were supposed to enjoy one last relaxing day with my parents before they headed home, but my mom just had to go and get herself a sinus infection. A trip to the urgent care clinic and bunch of drugs later, she was passed out in bed and my dad and I watched crappy movies on ABC Family all day. But I did manage to capture this gem while they were out:
