I absolutely hate the weekend before Superman goes on a camp out. I feel like I'm trying to scramble to fit in as much fun family time as possible while he tries to not use his feet. I realize about halfway through a day of dragging him around what he needs and what I want are two totally different things and that I'm the one that needs to make the compromise. I really do love and miss that man while he's gone.

I want 3 cookies, a bag of skittles and a coke.

Tomorrow is Day 1 of the Ultimate Kindergarten adventure for Miss E, she's now getting excited and so am I! I do not think I will cry, but then again I'm a weird crier.

Happy Monday!

It's Friday!
It's the (pretty much) the weekend!

There is absolutely nothing special about this blog except for those two things above. 
My wishes for this weekend are simple: fun and family.

Random photos from mission "Pickup E" below.

(Because we were sad?)

I hope all of you enjoy your weekend!

Terrorist Tuesday

Ahhh the wonders of the wrist slicing Tuesday. When I get to that place in my life when working everyday isn't a requirement Tuesday will be my mid week day off. I will do nothing but sit around the house and watch movies while eating ridiculous amounts of junk food.

I have homemade, super chunky, extra cinnamony applesauce. It's making me dream of fall. Normally I wouldn't wish away summer, but here in the south it sucks. It's too hot and humid to do anything except get burnt at the swimming pool so at least in the fall you can go to the zoo or park or bbqs and not want to die. Also Starbucks will be serving up their wonderfully fabulous Pumpkin Spice Latte starting the first week of September! Ahhhh I can't wait.

Tonight will be full of back to school shopping. As excited as I was for it I'm now not. It seems so tedious. 2 boxes of small crayons and 2 boxes of large crayons and super special notebooks. Maybe High school will be easier, a ton of pens and some notebooks and a $500 calculator.

A pretty darn good Wednesday

I am sparing everyone the awful details from my trip. The good ones however will be revealed tomorrow with pictures. All in all I have E back at home and everything fits perfectly like it should. All is well in the super house.

Today is a "chilly" summer day in the south. The breeze is blowing, it's 76 degrees and humidity is only at 61%. I have the window in my office open and I'm loving it. I can't wait for fall to get here.

I am still so exhausted from our trip and I don't know if I will ever catch up. E is having way too much fun being home and doesn't want to go to sleep and the pup thinks that it's also cool to want to stay up until late hours. I love them both too much to be too harsh so I go along with it. This weekend is already jam packed with bbqs and shopping and chores to even think about a nap. Maybe next year.

Alright lovies, I will hopefully be back tomorrow with some trip details.

I still have to sound out Wednesday when I spell it. Maybe because I don't pronounce it correctly? "Wensday" I'm going to start listening to people say it and see what I come up with. Pie graphs here we come!

This week has been bittersweet for me. I am loving the week alone with Superman and all the us time we get to have. Eating what and when we want, or not at all. Cuddling on the couch watching NOT cartoons. Going to bed when we feel like it and not having to worry about putting kids to bed. On the other hand I am beyond ready to have E home and back where things should be.

Ok, seriously this girl needs to get back to work and getting things finished and put together before I leave. Any bets on how many calls I get while I'm away?

Terrorist Tuesday

I am still catching up on sleep from this weekend. 24 straight hours in a car with a puppy and 2 kids and Superman is enough to exhaust ya.

Does it ever get easier when you pay bills? It seems like a kidney punch every time I hit the submit button or sign my name. Hate. 

Leaving early on Friday and then being gone this Friday and Monday makes work that much more busy. I'm trying to tie up loose ends and get people content until I come back so I don't have to deal with angry emails or phone calls while up in MT. 

Just a little fun fact? I'm listening to summer hits of the 2k :-) It's making me happy because it is filled with Eminem.

Is it Friday night or Saturday morning?

I'm sitting in a parking lot in the D.C. airport.  Its also 3:45 a.m. Whoever thought this was a great idea was wrong. I'm tired. I stink and I need a shower. I'm attaching a picture of Duke while visiting the monuments at midnight.  I will hopefully be coherent enough tomorrow to post an explanation.
