Hanging In There

This is an interesting time in my life.
  • First of all, the blessing of loving Kelsey and being called "you GOOD Mommy!" lights up my heart in ways I can't ever explain.

  • The Olympics AND the DNC all within the same 3 weeks? What riveting real life events playing out on the tube.

  • Kelsey has rejected the potty again (yes, even the Princess potty is not worthy of her pee) I did buy her the new Ariel Mermaid movie, but I told her she can't watch it until she pees again on a potty (any potty!)

  • Pre-school begins 2 weeks from tomorrow. Where does the time go?

  • Kurt's traveling and I am really tired this week. This makes my patience level go into the toilet

  • Tana's being a bit better about the peeing in the house...which means she gets to be here longer

  • We've spent the last 2 weekends very busy and I am looking forward to a quiet weekend. I've turned down 2 invitations that sound like a lot of fun (sorry SIS!) but I did get a phone call from a good friend inviting us to a block party...about 1/2 block away. That I think we can do.

  • I'm going to Washington DC with one of my schools. We're meeting the President. (yup, W) and going to a huge event on the White House lawn. I am going overnight (scary! my first business trip since Kelsey)

  • My high school reunion is coming up soon. Its really expensive to go, so we made the decision that I'll go for a short time and then come right home. I hate going without my trophy husband (hi baby!) as my arm candy...but we have a lot on our plate right now.

  • Plus, Kelsey won't be stressed about being left (we were going to let my sister sit for the first time...but this will be okay and then Kurt and I can use a night out for ourselves!)

  • I've been doing a ton of writing lately, all for work. Hopefully the fruits of my labor will bear some hefty fruit (please!)

  • Kelsey is now over 37" tall. While she's still teeny compared to other did my baby get so big?

  • She's got her 3 yr old check up a week from Sat, then the Dentist for the rest of her xrays the following Monday...poor baby.

  • Being overly tired makes me think some dark thoughts sometimes. People can be really irritating and I can be very overly sensitive.
  • I am hanging onto a number for the last few days...freakin' annoying that these numbers get bigger!
  • I volunteered for a new blogging opportunity that I am actually excited about. Stay tuned for more details shortly
  • I love the photo on top little poser!
  • I am loving my new hair's a bit blonder/caramelly than I ever thought I'd be
  • Things I am doing this weekend:
  • Going to dinner at the Bonefish Grill
  • Shopping for a new twin bed for our girl
  • Shopping for a new rug for our bedroom
  • Coaxing my Trophy Husband and my fashionably in style daughter to the Rennaissance Festival in Tuxedo...I love that place.
