Take Me Away!

After the afternoon I had today I wish I was back here. My uncle's boat sipping on a margarita.

Day 22

Moon jelly.

My poor dead morning glory vine. Have my fingers crossed it comes back in the spring.

Average speed over a thirty minute span, a whopping 4 miles per hour. When I took this pic I actually made it up to 6...yipee!

Second freaking time this week I've been stuck in traffic from hell! I really need to rethink this whole commuting nonsense.

Justin, what else can I say:

Confusion Maker!

My poor Daylilies have absolutely no idea that it's winter. I guess that's what happens when you live in SoCal and the temperature is 75 degrees in January. It's a rough life I tell ya.

My Secret Obsession

I was so excited today when I saw my Smithsonian magazine arrived in the mail. I know, I know I'm such a nerd. Just wait it gets worse. When I subscribed to the magazine I also received a Smithsonian umbrella! Player!

~Yeah that's right I blocked out my address. That's all I need crazies from the blog world stalking me ;)

Like Sands Through the Sandbox...

...these are the days of my life.

Two Man Wrecking Crew

Helping Uncle Michael with his bathroom re-model.

Justin, this will be the only time in your life you will be given permission to hit a wall with a hammer.

Twisty Slide of Death

If I had a nickle for every time I heard myself say, "Don't hang over the side of the slide, you're going to fall and bust your head open!"
Oh I could retire and quit my job a gazillionaire. I'm seriously starting to feel like the mom from A Christmas Story. For some reason I just can't convince this group of four year olds that dangling from the top of this slide isn't a good idea. Oh well, I quit.

It's a Dirty Job...

...but somebody's got to teach these kids about the life cycle of the earthworm. Sometimes I really do love my job.

Ice Ice Baby

11 days in and I already have to resort to cheating. I took this picture in November when we went to Big Bear for Thanksgiving. This is the closest we get to snow and icicles in SoCal (thank god)!

Blast From the Past

Somebody was nice enough to tag me in this photo today on facebook, so I figured what the hell I'll share it with the rest of the blogging world. I'm guessing from my mom's waistband this picture is circa 1986.

"Oh home, yes, I am home!"

I have always sworn that my iPod has psychic capabilities and today I received more proof. This is what song happened to be playing as I exited the freeway tonight.

I guess it was just as happy to be home as I was.

Where Shoes Go to Die.

Judging by the pile of shoes at my front door I would say a family of about 1 million live here.

Three Days in and We Have Our First Injury.

Today I managed to do the dreaded while shaving my legs, I nicked my shin. We all know how bad that hurts and how it bleeds like you cut a major artery. I was digging through my medicine cabinet looking for a bandage, trying to keep my bathroom from looking like a crime scene on CSI, and it suddenly dawned on me...I haven't had a grown up bandage in my medicine cabinet since I was 6 months pregnant with my first child. Now it's Spider-Man to the rescue for this mom as well as her kids. Thanks once again Spidey.

Day #2. My Future Hobo.

"Mommy, this box is so comfy! I want to live in it forever!"
Justin's exact words to me, I kid you not. At least he'll be a happy, easy to please hobo.

iPhone Addict Number One

Gone are the days of simple childhood entertainment. On a daily basis I find myself fighting with my children over custody of my iPhone.

Third Time's the Charm

Start, stop, start and stop. That seems to be the pattern with me and this damn photo blog. I give it a go for a little bit, then the inevitable excuses get in my way. Well no longer. Thanks to the encouragement and support of a group of my friends I am giving it a go, once again. I hope to make it the whole year, but we shall see...wish me luck!
