Automatic Trash Can

I was looking back at my first posts last night and thought I'd post about post #2. Here's the link. Yes, we still have this trashcan in question. It is still amazing and I love it. Ian tends to still pull up on it and push it down even though it doesn't need that. I find that when I have guests, they do the same thing, despite what I tell them. It's a little funny.

Here's a similar trashcan from Costco (I did get mine here, but it wasn't this one, nor did I spend nearly that much on it. I think it was less than half that price... about $30). They are incredible, trust me. You should totally buy one. It's been over a year now and I still would make this purchase again and again if need be. I think we've only had to change the battery once. And well, I was playing with it a lot. And now, Ian does sometimes too. I think that's a pretty good deal. Plus, when we lived in the apartment, I strategically had it in a very high traffic area, so every single time somebody walked into the kitchen, it would open up for them. Ditto when they walked out of the kitchen too. Needless to say, it was used a lot just for that purpose. It no longer sits in a walking pathway.

However, the downside to this trashcan is that it makes me look incompetent from time to time. And truth be told, I'm already slightly incompetent because pregnancy brain is in full force. Mix that with mommy brain and you're lucky if I spit out a full sentence to you that isn't gibberish. Anyways, we'll be over at someone's house, or worse, out at a restaurant where you have to throw your own trash away. And low and behold, I'll just stand there with trash in my hand hovering over the trashcan waiting for it to open for me. Stephen will find the need to comment on it, but I mean really, it's what I'm used to. I'm sure it makes me look like a complete lunatic.

One last and final downside, it isn't fingerprint resistant.

Given, this is after Christmas time when we had a million people over. But this is barely a con. You should wipe down anything and everything in your kitchen, especially the trashcan. 

Verdict: everybody needs an automatic trashcan because they are super cool.

The end.

Mila's Nursery

Her room is no longer clean and it is pretty much a safety hazard walking in there, but here's a picture of the progress we have on it so far.

We decided to paint it blue because her colors are pink and green, but we didn't want it to be overwhelming. Her room is a mess now because I've torn out her closet and need to paint and build it back... then finish her changing table and toss that in there. Slowly but surely it'll get done... hopefully.

I'll have to take pictures of Ian's big boy room soon too. We aren't done with that either, but it has definite progress!!

Super short post for today. Hope that everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather!

Blog out.

We're Back!!

Can you believe that I haven't updated since November?! How exciting is that? Well, good news! We got the internet back up and running. So, I may update more, at least until Mila gets here. Or at least, I'm going to try as hard as I can. We are all moved into our new house, but not fully unpacked yet. We're working on it though, sort of. I'm more working on getting Ian and Mila's rooms set up. I'm pretty excited.

I'll post pictures of the progress when I get a chance. Maybe tonight? We'll see.

Blog out!
