Damion’s Aunt and Uncle’s house this weekend was the perfect place to play with my new camera. There were so many interesting plants and rocks in their front yard. That’s what happens when you live in the middle of nowhere and yes I do find rocks interesting. I’m either a nerd or easily amused, you be the judge.
Our life lately has been hectic. We’ve added swim team to our daily schedule. I’m sure the multiple activities are something that some parents are use to and consider to be nothing at all but to me it’s a whirlwind. On wednesdays the girls have to change out of their swimsuits and back into regular church clothes in the car. Then I make them swallow their dinner whole and we sprint into church to drop them off for Awanas. Even the kid that travels at the speed of a sedated sloth has to boogy.
That child that moves at the speed of a sedated sloth and with the grace of a drunk elephant is on my heart tonight. I’m so worried that she’s not going to be able to pass the swim test on Monday and will be cut from the swim team. She’s tried but sometimes life is life. It just sucks with that life affects someone that you love so much.
My dad will be here on Friday. He’s kinda the neat freak that makes neat freaks look messy so I’m going to spend all day cleaning. Then I’m going to clean what I’ve cleaned and my house will still look horrible compared to his.
Princess Newbie has started having imaginary friends and animals to play with. She’s even given them different voices. It’s so sad to me because it means she’s growing up. Tonight she was trying to text on my phone. Tomorrow she’s going to ask me if she can meet her friends at the mall. Of course you can, just let me finish running the background checks on them and show you how we used to tease or bangs into oblivion when I hung out at the mall. Then you can go, if you wear your bangs still teased to the ceiling.
Princess Goofy is complaining of a sore throat. Her kindergarten graduation is on friday. Fingers crossed.
Is there a job where all you get to do all day is take pictures of nature? If there is sign me up! Just as long as that nature doesn’t have scales and slithers. Ugh. Oh and Mr. Byrd, thank you again for my mother’s day gift. It knocks my socks off.
