Project 365: Week 42

We only have ten weeks left in the year. Whaaaaat.

Oct. 12

This was my Sunday, basically. We both enjoyed it.

It was cold and rainy, so I baked. (This week is started out pretty exciting, eh?)

Essie stayed home with a fever, but she never lost her sense of humor (for long, anyway).oct 15

And it was Nana’s birthday, so we sent wishes from afar (via Facebook, of course).

Oct. 16

Our neighbor across the street grows and sells pumpkins every year, and is super kind and supplies our pumpkin needs. The kids got a couple of big ones and a bunch of teeny tiny ones.

Ervin has been, well….super DUPER three lately. Like, difficult. We got Battleship to play, but he won’t really let us play because he wants steal the ships. Dear Lord, please let him grow out of this. Soon.

Oct. 18

The big three and I ran some errands and spent some birthday money Saturday. While we were eating lunch (at 3:00 pm…everyone was out doing stuff that day….it all took forever), the kids had a whole lot of food leftover. So, I asked for boxes, and then Ivy said she had to go to the bathroom right after we paid. Bathroom, right NOW. So we went, with the unboxed food on the table. When we got back several minutes later, the empty boxes were there, and the food was gone. I was irrationally upset. I couldn’t leave my purse or any children at the table, I didn’t have time to box the food before Ivy left to go to the bathroom. The waitress felt terrible and brought us new fries, but there was almost an entire GF pizza and a cheeseburger left over. Gone. Not cheap. I could’ve waited for new food, but it took, like, an hour for us to get it in the first place and after several hours in a busy town running around with them, I was done. You know? And I don’t do confrontation well. So.

How was your week??

A Few of My Favorites.

I’ve been really busy and worn out lately, and haven’t had much time or energy to write here. But, Elaine has some Old School Blogging questions that looked super easy and wouldn’t take much (highly sought after) brain space, so here goes: A Few Of My Favorite Things. Sit down restaurant Choices are limited theseContinue Reading

Through the Lens Thursday: Deception and From the Ground

So, I missed last week. I wasn’t feeling it. (And yes, I did come up with the prompt “deception” because I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WAS THINKING). I did take a picture or two, so I’ll just do them both here. Okey dokey? Deception Fall around here looks pretty bleak. By now, the fields areContinue Reading

The First to Nine.

The oldest is nine today. NINE. One more year to double digits. He’s a boy of extraordinary creativity. Spectacular spelling skills. Big brother patience. Overflowing kind-heartedness. A thirst for knowledge, especially history (in his words “wars and disasters”). Freckles, super soft cheeks and big, blue eyes. Happy birthday, Henry. You started this family off right.

Project 365: Week 41

Oct. 5 I made my way home from LA on Sunday afternoon, and it seemed as though some creatures missed me….this one showed it the most, though. Oct. 6 We had beautiful weather….good for trying new swing tricks. Oct. 7 I had a dentist appointment, and for the first time (that I can remember), IContinue Reading

Project 365: Week 40

Sept. 28 The baby is growing up. Sept. 29 This was a late night for he-who-occasionally-falls-asleep-late-in-the-day. Sept. 30 Fall has definitely arrived here. Oct. 1 I arrived in Los Angeles to help work ShiftCon, and it was a long day. This is when I finally made it to a horizontal position. Oct. 2 My roomie,Continue Reading

All Tapped Out.

I have absolutely lost all motivation. Not just for running,  which I’ve done twice in the last three months, but for all physical activity apparently. I’m kind of an all or nothing gal. In order to keep up with a program, I need to do it several times a week and hold myself accountable. TheContinue Reading

34 Things for the 34th Celebration of My Life.

Today’s my 34th birthday. If you had asked me a month ago, I would have told you I was 34 already…I guess 33 was one of those “skip it” years. Do you have those? Anyway, because I don’t want to do real work right this very minute, instead I’ll share 34 random things. Because IContinue Reading

Through The Lens Thursday: Sparkle

As you’re reading this, I’m probably in California at ShiftCon. I’m writing this Tuesday night, and have a lot to do before I leave Wednesday morning, so this is going to be short. There’s a lot of sparkle in this house, so it wasn’t hard to find something to shoot. But, I wanted to doContinue Reading

Project 365; Week 39

As far as weeks go, this one was pretty slow. Sept. 21 I hadn’t run in, like, two months or some nonsense. So I ran. And I haven’t run since. Sigh. It felt good, though. Sept. 22 Vet appointment with two dogs and one toddler. It was a riot. Sept. 23 Ivy and I wentContinue Reading
