Saturday Morning Observations

First of all, we are two nights into our three nights without the man challenge of Spring, 2009. So far, we are all still alive. Which is the good news.

The not-so-good-news is that we are all feelin it - especially Sophie who woke up 3 times last night callin for her daddy. I was NOT a suitable exchange for this dilemma ... so we stooped to the bottle. THREE TIMES!

Clearly, the parenting skillz are in short supply at 11:27PM, 12:31AM and 1:52AM around here.

And, with that said, here are my (oh-so-random)observations on a sleep deprived Saturday morning...

* Hattie slept til 8AM, Sophie slept til 9AM ... so, I am at a complete loss as to WHY - after the night that Sophie and I shared - I was wide awake at 6:51AM. I did, however, get in a LOOOOONNNGGGG leisurely shower, in which legs were shaved and everything!


*There is NOTHING on at 6:51AM on a Saturday morning except infomercials.

*There is a contraption (whose name I cannot recall - even though I heard it repeated eleventy-seven times between 6:51 and 7:00AM) which promises to make ab exercises "fun and simple" to do. OBVIOUSLY this is false advertisement and the Better Business Bureau should be alerted immediately. Because, since WHEN do the words "fun and simple" and "ab exercises" go together ... at ALL?!?!?!

*There are currently two little girls playing in the bedroom. I'm not sure what they are doing (and am afraid to check since it involves loud thumping and banging on the floor), but they are laughing it up back there and THAT sound rocks my world!

*I miss my man ... a lot.

*No, seriously, a LOT!!!!!

*I saw a number on the scale this morning that made me smile ... big and wide.

*It has been warm and sunny this week and every window has been open ALL DAY LONG!

*I am currently wearing capris that were too small for me by the end of last summer, yet, today they are a perfect fit.

*Man, oh MAN ... my legs are WHITE!

*Got my hair cut and colored this week ... LOVE IT!!!!

*OK, that last thump necessitated a check ... jumping on, and then off the bed. Had to put a stop to that one!

*I think the girls and I are in need of an outing today ... lookout Costc0, here we come!!!

*I may even work up the nerve to take em to the park by myself. And, if you have ever seen Hattie forced to LEAVE a park, you will know why that would be a challenge!

*Because of said lovely new "do" from the "hair wizard", I may be in need of a flat iron.

*Who knew that people with stick straight hair would ever even CONSIDER buying a flat iron?!

*Hubby comes home tomorrow.


*Did I mention that I miss him ... a LOT!?!

OK, there is now a not-so-nice sound coming from the bedroom.

Gotta go!

Have a GREAT weekend!!!

Loved this post. I laughed several times.

To get my kids to leave the park I keep dum-dum lollipops in the car and instead of saying its time to go I say its time for your lollipop. They love leaving the park ;-)

Sorry you are missing your man. That would be so hard. My hubs is my best bud. I couldn't survive without him.

Great job on the weight loss and getting back into your clothes too.
