cramming

so i have like ten thousand photos i'd like to share, but i need to get to bed before midnight tonight since i keep saying i'm going to sleep, but then i find other things more important like internet shopping, drinking wine and doing dishes...

so i am doing a blog cramming session

5 minute cram session before i turn into a pumpkin
and by pumpkin, i mean scary-sleepdeprived-crazy-madwoman who hasn't gone to bed before 2 for the past 3 nights

so we went to the beach this morning and it was fabulous even though i had to carry bayley and our bags and sand toys and balance my spilling peppermint mocha
girlfriend loves playing in the sand
not walking in it!!

before our mall trek
by the end of the night bayley was pretending she was a cat and had stopped talking and was only meowing, we just went along with it.  i can't imagine what the workers at macys thought of us
"do you have a furball miss kitty?" my mom asked her as i was petting her head
"meeeeeeeowwwwwwwwww"

a few of my favorite things
Photobucket
tomorrow is oprahs favorite things show, last one you know

last night my mom and i stayed up late drinking wine and thought up the grand idea of biking across america with bayley
wouldn't that be a great blog to follow???
well if bayley sang her abcs like she did tonight in the car i wouldn't make it out of the driveway
it went something like
"abcdefgabcdefgabcdefg" in that kind of voice you use to describe someone who just goes on and on about something and is really irritating...kinda like fran dresher from the nanny complaining...ya

i'm off to bed feeling happy
my mom bought me flowers and chocolate and adam has 3 days off

and bayley knows her abcs

amen to that!!!

5 minute post, um sure

damn,i think i turned into a pumpkin

the good stuff

ok, so i keep trying to think up something really inspiring and fun and clever to write about, but that is not exactly how i am feeling so i will keep thinking and in the meantime write shortly about this weeks good stuff.
because no matter how cloudy and crazy my brain gets, there is always good stuff.  and i can find that easily from the 77 pictures i've taken in the past week.

tea party picnics in the living room

a random drive where we found this view at the top

yummy family dinners since Adam worked days this week

bayley gets so wild in the evening, it's like "okay i'm performing now and everyone had better watch"

we had some record breaking temps this week and it was so fun.  we had some lazy summer days and bayley played with the hose for what seemed like hours ( the water shortage didn't seem to bother me because i hadn't seen her that entertained since we stuck her in a huge tub of dry beans at the harvest festival)

some time at the park with rachel and sophie.  i don't know why, but i really don't like going to the park without a friend.  i find it incredibly boring...so shoot me
don't get me wrong i love spending time with bayley, but i would rather not have to climb jungle gyms and it makes me feel so bad, because it seems like all the other moms are having a blast, but i am not. 
this reminds me of the other day when i did take her to the park alone, and we began to walk across this fake boulder about 5 ft tall and apparantly i freaked out and then she freaked out and i told her to sit down and then i was stuck and she was crying and i had to yell to another mom to help us because we were stuck.  it was mildly embarrasing to say the least and i think i scarred bayley for life.

anywho...

and today we had hot "cah-lock-lat" as she says
and she drank out of a big girl mug that was mine when i was little.
i love beatrix potter and lucky for me she has been requesting the little books lately.

no matter how mundane things seem sometime, no matter how bad my pms is, no matter a scourching day or a hot cocoa day.  there are always good things.  and that is more than enough for me.

may everyone find their good stuff
good night
