Is it Sunday? Is it Monday? Well, technically, it is Monday, but the sun’s not up, yet and that’s how I tell Lil G we know it’s a new day. But, I’ve been to bed and gotten up. So, yeah, call it whatever day you like.


My kid is apparently a social butterfly. Whenever we go places he makes friends and plays games with them. This day he was playing a game with a five year old boy where they had to catch an Angry Bird. Then a couple of days later we went to a Burger King playland and he told two older kids (5 & 8) that he was a dragon and they were knights. Then a little girl came in and he said “Oh good, a princess!” What I wouldn’t give to have that level of imagination back. Or that fearlessness. He just walks up to any ol’ kid and says “Hey kid, mine G, let’s play!”

Very likely the last long hair pic đŸ˜¦ Daddy scheduled the haircut for Wednesday…


On to the chatting!

What are you…

Reading? Almost done with Timeline. Then I’ve decided to re-read the Hunger Games books since there is a new movie coming out.

Watching? Season 3 of Parenthood. It’s like they bottled my worst fears. Throw in a drowned toddler and this season will kill me.

Listening to? Sweet, sweet nothing. Everyone is asleep.

Cooking/baking? Dinner tonight was tacos. Tomorrow is bread day, and I’m thinking about giving tortillas and crackers a go. Why not, right? I’m challenging myself to not go to the store except for milk this week…

Happy you accomplished this week? Laundry? Within one load! I call that caught up. Got my seedlings all potted up. Got one of my surfaces decluttered. Been a pretty successful week.

Looking forward to next week? More organizing. Planning our trip to RI to see Mom. Getting Baby Hooked back up to snuff after going into semi-vacation for a couple of months.

Thankful for today? Orders are already starting to come in. The boy and I can walk to the library without much fuss! We found a playground within walking distance of the house, too! Also, there is this really sweet and handsome boy, and he loves me so much and he calls me Mommy.

*Bonus Question* What is your *ideal* wake up time and what time do you usually wake up? Ideally? I’d like to be up early. But, I’m no early bird. My body will sleep until 10am if I let it. Sometimes on the weekends or if Ladybug isn’t coming, I do sleep that late (Lil G likes to sleep in, like his Mama). But usually I’m up at 7:45am during the week and 9am on the weekend.


Ok!! Your turn! đŸ™‚
