Anywho, this is gonna just be sort of stream of conscience, 'cause some random things have been flitting through my mind. Well, when DON'T random things flit through? That's the better question.
So, apparently, I lost 2 followers over the last week or so. Really? What happened there? Was it the swearing post? Did I get too boring? I don't know. But, it's bothering me none the less. Sorry ex-followers, sorry for not living up to your expectations or whatever. And while we're here...where have all the comments gone? Where is the love? I'm just sayin.
Is anyone else as
What IS that stupid arrow and "up and up" all about?
Max will NOT go to nursery unless I'm there with him. I totally have one of "those" kids. The cling to their Mama kind, the ones I never likes, 'cause hey, go be cute for other people, not just me! He falls apart and just bawls if he can't see my lovliness. Last night he cried for a full 1/2 hour after we left. Apparently standing at the door, unconsolable. Our poor babysitter. Which reminds me....
I HEART our babysitter sooooo much it's almost ridiculous. She is the most adorable 12 year old. And by adorable, I mean, just slightly awkward, quirky, cute, and soooo great with my kids. They LOVE her, get excited about her, repeat her name throughout the week, etc. So, I must share this story, because it still makes me giggle. Last week Jer and I went to see movie. And it must be stated that EVERY time we've had this babysitter, we've never kept her as long as we thought. Either we got done early, or Julie came home or whatever. So, this was definitely the longest night for her. The movie ended just after 10:00. As the credits were rolling, I pulled out my phone to turn the ringer on and check for messages. Sure enough, there was a call from our house number. I got a bit panicked. "oh no, what's wrong, something happened, Max won't stop crying, etc.?" I told jere we had a message, and I dialed voice mail fast as I could. And there it was, THE most CLASSIC message of all time. I wish more than anything you all could hear it. But, it went something like this.
"Oh hey, Allyson, this is @%%*&, and well, I was just wondering when you might be coming home because (insert HUGE yawn over this next part) I'm really getting pretty tired. Ok, so call me."
HA!!!! That was the cutest dang thing I've ever heard. For reals, laugh out loud. WHO DOES THAT? Who calls their "employer" and say, I'm getting a little tired. It still just makes me giggle so much. I mean really, just curl on up and fall asleep, i did it all the time in my babysitting days. Needless to say, we rushed on home so she could get her beauty sleep. For reallys I love her so!!!
We went and saw Pippin last night, that show blows. I mean, they did a great job for what it was. There was good direction, some funny stuff, cool costumes, etc. But, just as a show....STUPID! Who ever thought it was a good idea in the first place? I don't get it. On the flip side...
We went and saw "Light in the Piazza" at Phoenix Theatre on Friday night. There are NO words for the beauty and perfection that was. Our good friend Kaitlyn was the lead (see, told you I have amazing friends) and she was stunning, perfect, amazing. And the guy opposite her, HELLO, I'm in love! Oh man, SUCH a great show. Sorry you all missed it!
Just a little shot of said Kaitlyn in all her gorgeousness on her wedding day.
I know, two shows in one weekend. Who ARE we? We haven't done that in, oh, EVER! AND, Jere saw Avenue Q on Thursday night.
Yeah, and everyone around me is totally losing weight. I sort of hate them. I don't get it...I'm working out, I'm trying to watch what I eat (at times) and I promise you, I'm getting fatter. Frustrating and scarey. Umm, but I must do a shout out to a loyal reader. JEN you look AWESOME, so proud of you!!!
The weather has been amazing, and I want to marry it. I wish it could be this way allll the time!
The kids and I walked over to Jenee P's yesterday, it was a delightful afternoon just chatting. Have I mentioned that I love my friends, and my neighborhood, and my house, and my FRIENDS!!!
Ok, Max is crying, time to eat dinner, then go play at the Wrights.
Random and up,
