update kinda

I said kinda because I have a million things I want to post
and I dont have time right now.
Why? Because now that Ginger, my doll and foot grabber and
Baby Einstein Obsesser. I know- not a word-whatever.
Anyway now that this dollface has entered my life, it seems like
there are only 10 hours in a day.
No, I lie, 12 hours of sleep and then 2-3 hours to get stuff done.
Stuff including; changing diapers, and listening to hours of the most annoying
music on tv EVER, freaking Baby Einstein.
Cant live with it, cant live with out it.

Remember when I said I was going to make a blog about being a new mom?
And I asked for names and whatever.
Well...not going to happen. Which if you knew me- you could have predicted
that. I always talk about these grand ideas and then...nothing.

So now I am trying to redesign our blog.
It has a new name, Im not telling though.
You'll have to see for yourself when/if it ever gets done.
The thing is Im doing it myself.
As much as I want to enlist the ever so talented Amber
who could bust this blog makeover in an hour,
I am determined to do it.

Okay...going to CA tomorrow for a couple days for some R&R
if G is not sick, which she has been so Im crossing my fingers.
Lauren do you see this?

G is teething. So fun.
Also smiling and she loves my singing...crazy.
Eating oatmeal, sorta. Her bib eats more.
Finally getting bigger.

Case is working HARD, and it sucks in the heat.
Love him for that.
A skate ramp (a large thing thats called a mini ramp)
has been put in the backyard behind the pool and
not to get to personal but seeing him Skate- kinda a turn on.

I am going to make an appointment with a doctor tomorrow
because I have issues that seem out of my hands.
I weigh as much as an Olsen twin (no offense to them-I am obsessed with MK)
and its getting worse.
I look like a boy. ugh.
Also I have a new job that I may or may not stay at.
Bad energy the first day- not my style.

And we found a house we love and I cannot wait to decorate.
And headed again to my aunts birthday party in CA, this weekend.
Trust me- it will be bananas, my dads side of the family-
oh the parties they have!

Thats it for now but I promise a super dope blog makeover and
a super dope post coming soon.

baby einstein is pure torture. i feel your pain. i can almost hear the music.. MAKE IT STOP.

sad i'm not going to cali with you. remember that time i went with your family to ventura.. we stayed at your aunts i think.. and went to a wedding? reunion? no i'm pretty sure it was a reception. maybe it was just a really big reunion, (( we did the electric slide! )) LOL.. anyway.. yeah, your family was crazy. in a 'i want to be part of this crazy family' kind of way.

that trip is one of my favorite high school memories :)

ps. let me know if you need any help with your bloggy make-over.

pps. i'd be happy to lend you some of my fat.. just realized today that i'm 10 lbs heavier than i was at this time last summer. FUN!

Life as Ashley said...

Few things...

1. I'm glad to see a post from you. I love your posts. Srsly. I do.

2. Blog makeover? I CAN'T wait to see what you come up with. I bet it will be F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S.

3. Yes. Time in the day gets shorter at the exponential inverse of the number of children you have. [and no, that comment is not mathematically correct..I think]. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. One day Ginger will become a little more independent. The next week, a little more. Believe me. I didn't think it was true. But IT IS. I bear my testimony to this point. Amen.

4. I'm so happy for you and your tribe's new digs. I hope it's everything you were hoping for and more. I also hope it brings some peace to your soul.

5. California? *jealous* Soak up a few rays for me. Mkay?

6. While at the doctor's figuring out your Olsen problem, will you inquire about my Alley problem? That's right. Kirstie Alley. I've got problems.

And lastly.... 7. I haven't figured out which is worse. Baby Einstein, or Barney. That damn purple dinosaur just gets. in. your. head.

The end.

So my husband bought a few skateboards a couple years back to try and convince himself he was going to get back into it again. Never happened. Now they sit on a shelf in the garage. With dust on top of them.

Sorry we couldn't make this week work either; it WILL happen! Have fun in Cali getting out of this holy hot heat. Enjoy!

I can't wait to see the makeover! And I love the kinda update, even though it was a pretty good one. You covered some ground.

As for looking like a prepubescent girl, I'd say make sure your eating at least 1,500 calories a day. Throw in a cheeseburger for good measure. But I really hope that's the solution to the problem. That would be easy, right? I hope it's not something harder to deal with.

So, would you recommend just never introducing baby Einstein to my kid? I might just play music and put on the swirly thing that comes with windows music thinger for her to stare at. That's gotta be good for brain development, right?

I am very excited about your home.

I miss you and I love you.

That was a great update, so much, I am glad I never introduced baby einstein, I was too cheap instead we just watched playhouse disney, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse & Handy Manny...i am like addicted to watching the shows now...pretty pathetic. Have fun in Cali...I love it when the hubby skates too...very hot. Looking like an olsen twin is a problem that can be solved I am sure though I bet it won't be easy :) I am with Ashley I have a kristy alley look alike problem right now especially after having home made mexi food for the last 2 weeks. baaaah!
