longest day indeed

Happy OFFICIAL 1st day o' Summer.
It really has been a long day.
A doc appt for Ella, a diaper blow-out
from my FOUR year old,
a monster trip to Sam's
enduring questions from my girl like,
"Why is everyone staring at Wyatt?"
(when did this start? I thought she'd never notice!)
my sore throat,
waited in the longest Walgreens line ever,
stepped on way too many Life cereals
in the messiest house ever,
I miss my hunk.

But I did get some reading in,
had some cheesecake
for family night at my
sis-in-law's (thanks, Emily!),
watched my baby happily crawl
in the grass and play with rocks
and cousins,
ate a yummy cinnamon pretzel at Sam's Club,
filled my deep freezer with fruit
for smoothies galore,
and cuddled with Meeskii outside
tonight on a blanket,
basking in summer's first day.
This pic is for you, Lover!


  1. I'm so glad you came over tonight. It's always a downer for me when Brett leaves and I loved hanging out with you and your kiddos. Is was such a nice night. I'm glad you enjoyed the cheesecake. I'm coming over for smoothies soon. Hooray for summer!

  2. It is amazing how quick kids pick things up over night. Where is the hunk? Maybe i shall read the last week I missed. Sounds like you had a busy event filled day. And you enjoyed it all, even to the sun set. you Rock!

  3. Aw, sorry you're missing your hubby- glad there were some bright spots in a challenging day!

  4. He is in beautiful Valencia! sigh

  5. Please don't tell me you're getting sick!

  6. I miss you too, Beautiful! I wish I was there to help take care of you and kids. I'll be home Friday night! Ich hab dich lieb!

  7. I like the way you find the good things mixed in with the difficult and not-so-good things. I'm impressed it took your daughter this long to notice Wyatt's differences!


Thank you for going the extra mile to leave a note. xoxo
