Jack O Lanterns

There are five jack o lanterns growing in my garden.
And I'm pretty excited about it:)
Sean keeps wondering why our cherry tomatoes aren't ripening.
I haven't told him that it's bc I sneak out and eat all of the ripe ones every day.
I wonder how much longer "it's just been a late summer this year" is going to work...

I was glad it was a laundry day.

We went to feed the ducks,
But max mostly fed herself.
And then they found the mud.

It was only a matter of time.

I went to jail last night.

Last night I went to jail.
In my dream.
For unpaid babysitting tickets.
Whatever that means.
And I missed dinner, even though when I asked about dinner it was only 4:45pm.
The woman at the jail desk looked at me like I should have known dinner was before 4:45pm in prison.
I guess they eat early there.
Like it wasn't my first day or something.
And there were no jail cells.
Just a bed in a cubical.
With coral pink padded walls.
No locks to keep us in.
Basketball games in the big gym behind the jail desk with the presumptuous dinner lady.
And someone handed max to me out of thin air, and I was crying and she was crying.
And then all of a sudden I was underneath a helicopter going to five guys for dinner bc i had missed it at the jail, but couldn't ride inside bc I was technically escaping, but I was planning on coming back.
I was just hungry for dinner.
Even though I knew I wasn't supposed to leave bc I was in jail.
But I remember knowing we could get passes to leave for meals or to go visit our family.
I was just too lazy to ask them for a pass or I was too scared they would say no.
And I wanted dinner.
Even though no one told me this, I already knew these rules.
And it was the most disturbing thing to not know how long I would be there.
That was the thing in the back of my mind the entire dream.
How long was I going to be there?
But I wasn't ever in my body, just watching my body from above.
Except when I was holding max.
I was in my body then.
And then I woke up.
And decided I never want to go to jail.
Bc I might miss dinner.
Or something.

Heaven HELP me.

When you love a book so much that it's a piece of you,
There's just no way a movie can do it justice.
Bc anything will fall short.
I should have known.

I could have been satisfied with my mug of soda, my bucket of popcorn, the previews, and the scene where hilly reads her chapter and screams.
I still can't believe they left out the air conditioning scene.
It was my favorite part of the book.
They did NOT have me at hello.
I was so obsessed with every detail that they changed that I couldn't enjoy most of it.
But I did enjoy my company.
All thirty of them:)

Being a girl

For the last three days in a row,
The first thing max wants to do is pick out a bow to wear.
Then she asks for milk.
The outfit is then planned around the previously picked bow.
Rough life.
Being a girl.

Bieber's OUT


He kept chuckling and saying it tickled.
oh man,
his brown eyes are even more penetrating now.
Cue TOP GUN music,
"take my breath away."
I'm in love:)

Marilyn Monroe

Our own little Marilyn Monroe,
But without all of the skeezy scandals;)
