some words for this day
i have to be honest here. i am kind of over blogging right now. i am not loving it, but am hoping inspiration and my obsession with talking about myself comes back to me. in the meantime, i will spit out a few posts here and there when i'm feeling particularly wordy. by the way, i write this post as my little Gem screams "NIIIII NIIIII NAYYYY" (night night, neigh) while standing up in her crib, presumably yanking down on her mobile (it has a horse on it).
so what on earth has been going on in life of ol L?! well aside from sending out baby shower invitations with THE WRONG DAMN DATE on them, i have been quite well.
i have been eating nothing but goldfish and candy corn for the past week and i'm not even mad about it.
i have begun my Christmas shopping (falalalalaaaaaa!).
this spider crawled out of my suitcase when i was doing laundry the other day and i screamed bloody murder and JJ came running in to see what all the excitement was about and he yelled just as loudly. i begged him to step on it and he shouted, "NO L! I CANNOT! I AM AFRIAD TO SQUISH HIM! I THINK HE WILL RESIST MY FOOT!!" (and he gets offended when i call him a drama queen). he finally stepped on it and then i had to wipe him up. he was absolutely massive!!! my hand is there for frame of reference. I MEAN LOOK AT THAT THING! we had the heebeejeebees all day.
whenever i say "naughty" to Gemma, she puts herself in timeout, giggling. i've got to come up with something new.
some girlfriends and i have started meeting for a monday coffee date at a kid-friendly place and it is the most wonderful way to start the week!
Gemma says "pumkee" which obviously means pumpkin and also got her halloween costume. we have put out the sparkly orange skull head and have purchased the 8,000-calorie pumpkin streusel muffins from Costco so IT'S REAL FESTIVE AROUND HERE!
aaaaaand Gem is finally out cold. so that's my cue to put on sweats and eat more candy corn. L OUT!
