I (finally) casted off bejeweled Sunday, this week I’ve been caught up in the whirl wind of being a mom to small children. Summer school, girl scout camp, Dr’s appointments and the like. Don’t get me wrong, when nothing is going on I’m bored. I live for the chaos, for Bryce’s million questions “what would happen if I ate the green part of the watermelon? What if I ate a black watermelon seed? Can I plant a watermelon seed in the backyard? What makes a seedless watermelon seedless? What if a farmer got mixed up and planeted a seed watermelon instead of a seedless one?” And my mother wonder’s why I don’t drink. He askes at least a 100 questions a minute, and sometimes its hard to bullshit a awnser and not get all harried. Or tell him to pleeeeeaaassee stop for a minute. When I casted bejeweled off, I started blogging in my head. I was tempted to just post a picture and say I’m done. But my knitting means more than that and I love to tell a good story. I watched the kids try to ride the cardboard they painted earlier that day down the hill in the backyard,
and I started thinking how rich my life is. How very lucky I am to have a loving family and great friends.
my little Kailey-bean 5months playing, possibly eating bejewled.
Bryce, who’s posed smile looks so very pained. After he wanted to know all about the daylilies. He is always thinking that boy.
Corra, my sweetie pie.
Mike, whom I had to recue bejeweled from before he woke up.
silly ‘llysa who keeps it real. I asked for a smile and this is what I got! (When I’m pumping gas, I make silly faces at them in the van. I really wonder what the people around me are thinking!)
My life is full of so many riches, so many giggles and smiles. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me.
