i feel funky

I have to wake up at 730, so i should go to bed.
but i can't, i need some alone time and sleeping just doesn't count.
maybe it's some kind of only child syndrome, but if i don't get some pure alone time i get pretty crabby. 
and by alone time, i mean by myself, not having to DO anything yet hopefully choosing a creative outlet to help me remember who i am again.

so i sit here sipping some pinot grigio thinking about way too many things and it feels great.
i hear a hum of the baby monitor and a fat cat thumping down the stairs.  shoot, i have to put her flea medicine on her.
i see the choppy ends of my new bangs i cut myself yesterday and a pile of books and journals and to do lists on my desk. 
i smell nothing which reminds me that i forgot to light my aromatherapy diffuser with orange and rosemary essential oils which should help my funk i'm in.

last week or was it two weeks ago, i went to see a movie for the first time since Bayley was born.
(i'm not counting the time i tried to go see julie and julia, but got too drunk and had to be escorted home by my friends)

we saw....

my friend Jeanette and I had quite a marvelous evening

I can still taste the sushi...mmmmmm...
i think i could live on japanese food for the rest of my life

we went to a fancy movie theatre that made me feel kinda out of the loop
we got to pick out our seats on a touch screen monitor before the movie...crazy new stuff these days
red velvet reclining seats, a pretty much empty movie theatre and Julia Roberts playing in a movie i've been waiting to see for months....heaven

we laughed  and whispered and i ate way too many mango ginger chews and it was just grand.

speaking of big events, Bayley had her first haircut on August 18 2010
i just needed to see her with bangs and even up the back
and oh was she proud and so excited!!
it was the cutest thing to watch and then telling people after "i got my haircut and a lollipop"  i truly think the lollipop was the only reason she went for it. 

and the only reason i went for it was because my mom was there to tell me that it would be okay
it was a big deal to me...these "firsts" are going by way too fast!!!

cute


oh how I love this little girl you are turning into Bayley Boo. 


some cute saying this past month

"let's turn the dark on"
when i raised my voice at her to get into bed she said "i gonna go find mama"
"i love my friends"
she calls her stepstool a toadstool
"i don't put money in my mouth....just brownies"
sitting at a table at the fair, she picks up a lotto brochure, looks at it and says "i need a appetizer"

too cute for words!!!

back home

we are home from our trip to utah, it was fabulous and refreshing.  and today i was faced with piles of laundry and unpacking to do.  i did good and i even made a pot roast and cookies whilst putting away 5 loads of laundry and going through suitcases filled with every random item imaginable including a sippy cup filled with a stench so bad i'm still nauseated from it.  and i really would like to write more about our trip and i will, but right now i am going to finish watching Matilda, eat some cookies and go to sleep.

Thank you Dad for the great trip.  Thank you Linsey and Lamar and the girls for being such wonderful hosts!!!  And thank you Aunt Julie for showing me how to make jam. 

lots more pics to come!!!
