After coming home from the hospital this morning I took a nap for a few hours. My day actually began around 12:30pm. Here’s how it’s gone:

I went outside to drink my coffee and have a smoke and I met a new friend. From the looks of his plump belly he'd had a hearty breakfast. I had to pick him up and take him away from the property before my Mother had a heart attack. He was a big boy, about 18" long. Gigantic for this part of the woods.

When I went in for my shower Ken and his ladies greeted my from the edge of the tub. Looks like he had a good night. Sorry Ken, you have to go. You’re not my type 😉

Then while at the playground my niece climbs atop the fire engine and states that she "wants to ride in big firetrucks when I get big like you Auntie". Awww!

This evening as I tried my dress on for one last time before the wedding to make sure I didn’t have to do any touch-ups my niece came waltzing into my room. Her jaw dropped to the floor and she said, “Auntie! You don’t wear dresses!”. Haha. She was only a year old when I last wore a dress at my graduation. She then went on to inform me that I can’t wear my camo hat and my work boots with the dress ’cause “it just doesn’t work”. God love her!



{March 21, 2013}   Reminiscing

Man, remember when?

The Dinosaurs

I used to watch endless reruns of Lambchop at my Grandparents house during the day and then endless reruns of The Dinosaurs when I’d go home at night. I had the coolest Dinosaurs coloring book. I never colored in it because I was afraid if I did I would really want to color it at a later date. I don’t know what ever happened to that book. “Not the Momma!”

Barney' s Christmas Movie

And what mid didn’t fall in love with Barney?! I remember having all of the Barney movies. I had a Barney blanket for my bed, a Barney stuffed animal that sang that “I love you, you love me…” song, a 25 piece puzzle of Barney and Bee-Bop, a pop-up punching bag with Barney on it (I get the joke now, Mom and Dad, haha) and I even got to see Barney and Bee-Bop on an RV trip my parents took my brother and I on. Keep in mind, I fell obsessively in love with the original Barney- more of a plum color than a bright purple.

I’m not really sure why I’m reminiscing about my favorite childhood television shows right now. Maybe because it seems like kid’s shows have really taken a nose-dive. I wasn’t allowed to watch The Simpson’s until I was thirteen, now my six year old niece can almost quote King Of The Hill.

I’d like to see some of the old shows come back. I could totally tuck into a Wonder Years marathon right now!

Pregame Slumber

My calm before the storm. And after the storm. My camouflage Babe. Her papers say that I rescued her, but it’s quite the opposite.
When I see her like this it makes it awfully hard to leave her and be “sociable”, like going to this stupid Super Bowl party. The Patriots didn’t even make it! So why are we having a party? I don’t know a single thing about football… so why do I even have to go?
Maybe I’ll just stay long enough to let my attendance known…



{March 4, 2012}   Let’s Have Some Laughs :)

“I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose.”  ~Woody Allen

I stumbled across a page on FaceBook called “The Kids Your Parents Wouldn’t Let You Play With”. I found these and many more funny pictures in their albums. Sometimes, you just need to have a good laugh. I know I laughed- that’s why there is now coffee on my keyboard. Haha! Let’s have some laughs!

 

I love animals. Hope you found some laughter!
