multi-billionaire jackpot

against my better judgement, i bought one box of each while waiting in the checkout line at walmart.
a "sus" for the pork loin's american holiday.
he's going to either love it or be completely terrified.
now it's the 2nd star to the left and straight on until the 4th of july.
or something.
if tired is my only complaint of motherhood,
then i've really scored the jackpot.
today, i was a multi-billionaire in the jackpot.
note to self:
wear sunscreen even if you plan on staying in the shade.
you will NOT be able to stay in the shade like you think you will.
that is all.

pudding vs. yogurt

he wanted pudding for breakfast.
of course i said no.
until i looked at the labels.
and realized that the pudding may actually be healthier.
well, less sugar at least.
so he's eating pudding for breakfast.
and crying that he can't have both pudding AND yogurt.
the man picked.
tomorrow's pickings should be interesting.
it doesn't seem like either option is really that great.
but for some reason i feel better giving him the yogurt...
served with a side of oatmeal.


i love the way the sun hits my house at 6:15pm in the summer.
the days are hotter than i like,
but the nights,
i can't get enough.

didn't sandy and danny sing about it in grease?

don't break my heart, my achy breaky heart.

pounding head.
body aches.
high fever.
shaking body.
figures i would get sick on dr. scout master's first day of work.
only snapped at him once.
it was sad.
i was grumpy.
cousins dropped off dinner.
i went to bed at 7pm after feeding the baby.
woke up to snap at the doc and then again to feed max sometime in the a.m. hours.
she grabbed her toes for the first time yesterday.
4 mo. old.
now i'm just weak.
and feeling badly about snapping.
but feeling really special about the flower brennan brought me to make me feel better.
melted my heart.
let's hope i'm the last one to see this sickness.
staying home sick is just not as cool when you're all grown up as it was when i was in elementary school.

ligh-ne, ligh-ne, boooooooom!

have you ever had wind come cold from one direction, followed by a blanket of heat from another.
and spooky.
the sky was orange with lime juice.
or something creative like that.
like a tornado was just around the corner.
saw 4 rainbows all in a row.
submitted the first two to the news.
i hope they pick mine.
the clouds literally ate the rainbow in one huge gulp.

left side scape

middle scape

right side scape brennan is still saying "ligh-ne, ligh-ne, booooooooom" in his crib.
max is oblivious with a boogy nose.

i could eat them both. yum.


dr. scout master starts work tomorrow.
