Like i said, been up for a while. lol also had a cup of this one while doing the dishes and getting ready for the day. House is nearly packed up…maybe 70%? and 20% we can’ pack until closer to move date. So it’s going well.

Kittenna

Glad it’s going smoothly! I had a bit of a laugh yesterday as I unpacked some more stuff into our kitchen. Ah well, at least I freed up a rubbermaid for baby clothes? (Side note: smart move for you to move before you’ve accumulated too many rounds of baby clothes… they’re using up all my moving containers!)

Sil

Haha you’d think that, but no….we’ve started accumulating as friends and family have given us all sorts of clothes from current through to 2 years old :)

New tea this morning. Don’ recall much about it beyond the fact that i drank it all and finished it before i realised that i had ha! That’s generally an indication that it’s a pretty average cup of tea in my books – not bad, not complex but absolutely drinkable :)

gmathis

“Where’d that whole cup go?” is a very accurate barometer! (That, or I’m just hopelessly forgetful! :)

Sil

no no, i’m with you on that one!

Finished this one off this morning. I’ve been up since kiddo woke me up the first time, but didn’t start doing anything besides trying to sleep until she woke up the second time. Yesterday was a long day, so i suspect on little sleep, today will be even longer. started with this one to finish it up since i picked up a few new teas the other day for my birthday. Gotta keep those numbers down! haha i’ve never been in love with this one but it’s a decent strong bold puerh. would like to try more from this company now that i know more of what i like.

21 days left until we move! and kiddo decided today was the day to start rolling back to front lol. pulled this one out first thing this mornig as i’ve been dying for some of my puerh. still can’t really take the time for a good long session, but i can drink a few western brew cups during the day if i start early. Going to make sure i save a little of this one for the new house, but man i am a fan! it’s up there as a western brew with some of my other mandala favourites.

Kittenna

Rolling! Fun! Our little guy started rolling around this time, I believe, but after he figured it out, he decided not to do it again for a month or so… and then, the craziness (crawling) started. Haha.

Sil

we technically should move her to the crib now since she’s rolling but that requires getting our dresser out of the room…which is doable once we make space for it in the “garage” with all the boxes we’ve got packed lol

Kittenna

I don’t think our guy rolled at night until 5 months, but he was swaddled until 4 and couldn’t move around much. He also only rolled front to back, and of course slept on his back anyhow. Once he was rolling at night, though, he started tummy sleeping!

Sil

we stopped swaddling her at like 2 or 3 months ‘cause she preferred it…sleep sacks though even now. she rolls during tummy time but the bassinet isn’t big enough to let her do it at night hah

Didn’t realize I forgot to wrap up where I was in terms of goals for June. Suffice to say, I’m still on track even with my Puerh because I’ve managed to not buy anything in forever. Even with hte 2 teas mom brought back from Paris, I’m still miles ahead of my goal for normal teas. This is a good thing because it means less to pack AND because I can save up to take advantage of Black Friday sales….if I make it that long. I have only 1 straight black and am really missing my LB….but we’ll see how things go.

Still enjoy this one, but really need to make it as a latte again as it’s my preferred way of drinking this one. Dark and delicious. Noms.

tea-sipper

You could buy yourself some LB as a moving gift when you get there…

Sil

might have to….hmmm

We are in moving hell atm. Lol. I actually like moving but it feels like 3ven though we’ve purged ALOT, we’re still going to have a million boxes. Not to mention I’m seriously anxious about moving my board games.

However in positive news, kiddo has slept more than 6 hours for the past 4 nights and last night was almost NINE! So amazing, so here’s hoping she keeps it up.

Pulled this one out this morning as I wanted a comforting “friend” to help me catch up with packing. Trying to get at least a box done every day and I’m three behind from the weekend with my parents visiting again. Love how reliable this one is.

Kawaii433

Aww lol. I hate hate hate moving. I’ve had to move like 3 times in the last 6 years. I’ve been at my current place for a couple of years and still have a bunch of boxes unpacked because I thought I’d have to move again lol.

Sil

i love moving…purge, pack, unpack, purge and reorganise…love it. only thing i don’t love is having to rehang things on the wall.

Kawaii433

:D I do certainly have a LOT to purge, especially electronics like old computer parts… Etc. lol Ok then, happy moving and glad the kiddo is resting well!

gmathis

I remember writing those first “slept all night” notations with stars and hearts on our first baby calendar :)

Kittenna

I’m bad at purging, and I hate moving. Though I do love the chance at a fresh start for reorganization. I need to step up my purging game before we plan to move.

Sil

Gmathis – hell’s yes!
Kittenna – yes, yes you do. Because Holy boxes! And we don’t have a lot of stuff…except apparently we do. So many board game boxes.

had this one the other day and it was a real treat. Brought me back to the adventures my other half and i had in paris a few years ago. Hard to believe we’ve gone from there to here. Loving this life we have together and so glad we’ve done the things we have. Appreciate this wander down memory lane with a fantastic cup of rich vanilla yum.

Kittenna

You finally got some new tea! Crazy how life changes, eh?

Sil

On,y cause mom went to Paris heh. 2 total!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
