It's Summer!!!

Ok. I know it's not officially summer according to calendars for like, 1 more week, or something. But to me, today was the first day of summer!

1. The kids were out of school. I still had to show up at my office but it was so nice to be at an elementary school and hear absolutely nothing but the soft sounds of my keyboard clicking and the clock ticking.

2. I bought lemonade from a bunch of kids on the way home! This picture isn't of those kids, they were a few years older, and my cup cost 50 cents...but it was tasty!
I'm so excited for beach time, bike rides, sun bathing, gardening, lawn games, yoga on the bluffs, popsicles, and pool parties.

Happy Summer everyone!

Tim's first Father's day

June 18th, 2011

It's Tim's first father's day tomorrow!We got to see the baby last week on an ultrasound for the first's little heart was pumping and looked like a little radar blip on the screen. It was a moment for me where reality sunk in just a bit deeper. There's a tiny human inside of me! you're the one making me so sleepy and irritable! But how could I be mad at a little lima bean.

Happy Father's Day!!

Just a virus...

blogs are meant for candid, open, spilling of maybe even somewhat embarrassing secretive things...right???

I've been sick for a long time now, about 3 1/2 weeks...I'm in the coughing stage. Fits of coughs that at this point make my abs hurt (at least I'm getting some sort of a work out!) and last uncontrollably for up to 2 minutes as I pray for relief. Here's the embarrassing part. Every time I cough like this, I pee a little. EEk!! My poor pathetic body just can't take it all. Every ounce of strength and energy is spent up as my lungs trying to fight for a deep, clear breath of fresh air and apparently my bladder just doesn't care anymore. Does anyone else have this problem? Am I doomed to the bathroom for the next ? weeks until I'm fully recovered? Sadly? this is just a despite 2 trips to the doctor's and one 3hr long visit to a clinic, I'm without the magic pills that make everything all better. Just drinkin fluids and resting and researching whether the people behind fuzzy buns (baby re-usable diapers my niece uses) make an adult size.

someone comment so I don't feel ashamed! (christi....please.)
