Celebrations and debates
Thursday, January 21, 2010
My daughter turns two years old next week. I'm not sure where this little person in the house came from, but she is there in full force. She's got opinions, she's got wants and she wants them to be known NOW. I always thought people were crazy when they would tell me that it gets better and better and that each age is more and more fun. When the daughter was two weeks old I had a panic attack. I didn't want her to change or grow. I was so afraid of that change and growth. I wanted to her to stay this tiny, little baby that I could cuddle and snuggle, that would look to me solely for food, and never want to leave me. That scared me. I am now a wiser person and I have to tell you, two is THE BEST AGE EVER. There, I said it, and it is 100% true. So, this coming Sunday we are having a party with cake, ice cream, balloons and presents. It is going to be fun and we are going to love every minute of two going on three and then three will be THE BEST AGE EVER too.

Now the debate. I have kept personal photos off of this blog for the most part, but I'm finding myself wanting to share some photos of my family on here. I don't even know why since I have Facebook and a couple other sites that I share on already. Do I do it, or not?

Hole in the head
Monday, January 11, 2010
I was just thinking that I need a candy bar and I followed that thought up with the phrase, "like I need another hole in the head". But, maybe another hole in my head could actually be useful. Something kind of like a pocket behind my ear where I could tuck things like my car keys, ID and credit card. Maybe a piece of gum or two as well. But that could get bulky. What if it was just big enough to tuck your rings when you take them off to wash dishes or apply lotion? Then again digging rings out of your skull could be weird...a horn! A little horn to hang your rings on when you wash dishes or apply lotion. How sweet would that be? Wait, that wouldn't be good at all. If we all had horns we would start comparing each other's horns to see who's horn is bigger and it would become this whole ego trip thing and who wants to get into all that mess. I guess I'll just go eat my candy bar. Forget I said anything.

Things that are rambling and clanking around in my brain recently (in bullet list form of course).

- It is 22 degrees outside. I'm sitting in a room with a running air conditioner. I'm cold.
- I've decided that poopyhead is a really appropriate term. People get a little irritating when they haven't taken a nice strong poop in a while. I was a poopyhead this morning. I'm better now. You can thank me later for the visual.
- Going back to school sucks. Going back to school when you are my age (old) sucks even more.
- I never did announce my big news. It's even bigger now because it's been a reality for a month. I AM PARKING MY CAR IN A GARAGE. It's HUGE news people, HUUUUUUUGGGGGGEEEEEEE!
- My daughter has become a human being with needs, opinions and ideas. So weird.
- 3 donuts are almost filling. 4 is too much. So, 3.5 must be just right. I'm a math genius!
- The 365 day project kicked my ass 5 days into 2010. I wanted to do it, took a picture on new year's day and everything. That's as far as I got. Me=biggest slacker ever.

Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday season. On to a new and hopefully better year!
