Hanging out near my sitting spot Friday morning. No harm came to this creature by my hand. I just photo’d him and put him back near a tree. I’m going to do some bird pictures next. Something pretty. I have work today. I am tired. My shift is going to be good. I am telling myself that because I want to have a positive attitude. Super Saturday! We will see.

Sleep Pic of the Day! 2-For-1 Special, Official Summer Kick-Off!

June 21, 2011 at 10:53 am (Sleep Pic of the Day) (, , , , , )

My daughter didn’t know she would be featured in her very own daily picture post! This is at the ungodly hour of 7 am. Straight legged, looking kind of stiff but snoring ever so slightly, hands over her head. I remember reading a long time ago, when I was  fresh mom, that when babies, or kids, sleep with their arms thrown up over their head like that, they are in the most relaxing sleep they can be in. It’s a sign of their pure comfort. No inner baby stress, I guess. I always thought that was a nice thing for new moms to know. You can be assured that you ARE NOT doing a completely crap job if your kid can lay like he/she has no cares in the world, even if it is for a short time, and even though they really don’t have any cares in the world, except food/sleep/poo. Hmm. Actually, I know alot of people like that….but anyway…. even if ALL the babies in the world sleep like that just because they do, it’s still a plus in the parent department.

Here’s a pic after I woke her up at 8 am. I know, I am a MONSTER! She managed to make it all the way to the couch. At least she was out of her bed. That’s half the battle.

WTF?!?!? My kids are not far enough away from childhood yet.

July 13, 2009 at 10:24 am (Things The Kids Like, Video) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Monday’s are bad enough. Especially when you stay up too late “studying” (4am) I did give it my best shot, but the kids…the kids…!!

That was my last full night with them until they are off again on more summer adventure! They will be going to their friends house this afternoon and returning on Wednesday. Then, Thursday, they have a friend coming to our house. Friday is my sissy’s birthday!! How old? Not as old as me. Bummer. She and the hubby and the kids will be staying here with us because Saturday, at 7:30 AM is…THE WARRIOR DASH!! Finally! I am planning on having fun, not trying to win or be all super-bad, extreme, athlete…but I am getting a nervous stomach-ache already thinking about this. They sent an e-mail telling us to prepare and don’t be fooled–it really is extreme and dangerous and if you are not careful you will get hurt. That helps. And she says we never do anything for HER birthday! Ha. How about a nice hospital stay?? We can share a room! Kidding.

So the week is kind of booked. I still have my final tomorrow–more nerves–and I tried to read more–but it’s hard when you want to do other fun stuff, staying up with the kids, watching tv, playing on the computer, doing laundry, taking posters and stuff off the wall so we can paint, you know, typical Sunday night stuff. The little quitters crashed out at 1 am, but I go all the way. I crawled into bed just as the BF’s alarm was going off at 4:30. He says, “Are you just coming to bed now?!?” I should have just stayed up. AND, I wasn’t even drinking!

Although after seeing, mostly HEARING this mess below  for the WHOLE WEEKEND, I should have. Sometimes the kids computer search abilities are not appreciated. It’s great that they are getting older and more interested and able to do more things with more resources…and sometimes it’s not.

I don’t know where this came from, I don’t know what it is, why it’s out there right now, and how they found it…but please, make it stop.

It’s obviously geared for the small frys, but 11 and 12 year-olds are not immune. Get ready to have this playing in your head for the next 50 days. I’d apologize, but no one feels sorry for me. The lyrics are included, because you know you are going to want to sing along. Enjoy.

Good Morning, Rainy Thursday!

June 11, 2009 at 9:25 am (Day to Day, Find The NY Coffee Cup) (, , , , )

It’s Thursday. It’s raining. (But it’s one of those nice, rainy, summery mornings that makes you want to curl up on the couch with a good magazine. Books are still a little out of my attention span) First test grade at school is, officially, good. Kids are still sleeping, and my coffee is tasty and hot!

I’ll be taking my son for his 6th grade physical today. Shots! He says he will NOT be a needle-chicken this year! We are betting an El Famous Burrito lunch extravaganza on this. Will we be eating delicious Chicken Quesadillas, Beef Nachos, Chips, Salsa AND Guacamole at 12:30 ish today? Or will we be driving home in rainy, gloomy, summertime shame? Find out later!

I have to go hop in the shower. So for now, please enjoy this light reading about one of my favorite subjects.
