Um, I got a little something but it ain’t much


My middle child is staying the night with his grandparents and cousin tonight. I miss him!

Our other two children are sacked out in their beds and I think I hear Mitch in one of their rooms snoring. He must have fallen asleep snuggling with one of the kiddos.

My head has been hurting all day. Not a headache but kind of like a swimming thing. You know, every time you bend down and the pressure increases in your body, your head feels like it’s about to pop!? Or, when you turn your head too quickly and the swoosh happens in your brain? Yeah, that’s what I’m experiencing. I’m gonna go pop some more Tylenol before crashing in the bed.

I just finished reading a piece of fiction that has taken me six months to complete. I love to read but my time is usually spent reading news online, newspapers, and magazines. Long stories have got to be REALLY GOOD to keep my attention…or to keep me from falling asleep in the bed as I turn the pages.

You know, sometimes I dread writing for this blog. I mean, who really wants to read about what I did with my time today? Who really wants to know that my head hurts? Who really cares that I don’t have time to read long novels? I’m not fishing for feedback….just tellin’ it like it is.

This past week in pictures


I take so many pictures. I delete a lot but I love browsing through them and remembering the moment, even if that moment was just watching my children eat their afternoon snack together in peace. Here are just a few pictures of our life this past week.

Planting seedlings in egg cartons. They are still alive and have been replanted in a larger pot. I guess I have a minimal green thumb.

Eating lunch every Monday, just daughter and mom.

Hunting bugs for our “bug playground”.

Hunting for more bugs.

Watching the birds in our backyard feeder.

Eating pistachio nuts in the yard.
This photo is weird.
Why is Abigail wearing her arm floats?

Climbing the neighbor’s fence.
Sorry, Jamie!

We have a few tadpoles that we’re watching daily
to see when they’re gonna sprout their legs.
I’m just surprised they are still alive.
