Just a Number

Well its all over the news today here in So Cal that is is going to be one of the hottest days of the year. I live about 35 miles inland from the coast so for me that means "hotter than hell". Today the forecast is for 110 degrees. My biggest fear is that we will be sitting in the house enjoying the AC and all of a sudden the power goes out. I think I will then have to drive around town with the AC on while I waste the $4.79 a gallon gas I used to fill my tank. I could also bring the grapes that will go to waste in my fridge since they were $5.00. Oh and don't forget the $1.99 bunch of celery I bought that made the checker at the store comment on how expensive it was. Yes I am a lucky one and I count my blessing everyday that I am able to have what we do, but when is this going to end?

First Day of Hell, I mean Summer

So it is now 7:31 am- Sam has been awake since 6 am with a stuffy nose and a really bad diaper rash. Julia just woke up and informed me that she didn't want what I had made for breakfast and that she wanted to go to the gym NOW! Jon left and said "Good Luck" on his way out the door and I flipped him off as he closed the door. So yes it going to be a good summer I tell you! Please prey that I will make it to Aug 13th sane, in one piece, and not an alcoholic :) Oh and I almost forgot- forecast for today 105...

Happy Father's Day

I still have my Dad's cell and home phone number programmed into my phone and it really bummed me out that I wasn't not making a call today to wish him a Happy Father's Day. So I am going to hold the one Dad and Hubby that fills my days with love :) I love you Jon- Happy Father's Day!

So Proud

As we were driving through the McDonald's Drive through last night I turned to my gorgeous girls in the back and said "Ok what do you guys want?" and Sam says "Chicken nuggets, duh" I did a double take and said "Did you just say duh?" Only a mother can be so proud that her two year old daughter said duh, but she actually used it correctly. My baby has timing :)

So this is Julia's last week of school and as much I am looking forward to the non rush that summer brings, I am also dreading it. Last summer Julia was in day camp through her preschool so I wasn't worried and Sam was still on two naps. This summer will be totally different. I am having a little anxiety with what I am going to do with two kids all day for 2 1/2 months in a place where is gets to be 110 degrees outside. Yes, we have some activities planned, and yes we have friends to hang out with, but I can't be Mary Poppins everyday! I know it sounds totally selfish, lame, and I should be thankful that I am able to stay home with my children, but I am just hoping that I can be the good mom I want to be without them driving me crazy. Does anyone feel the same way?

Why must children who I have taken to the park for 2 hours, take their sand filled shoes off on my bed? Then why does the little one think its funny to take her diaper off and pee on the carpet all while the bigger one watches and laughs? Why doesn't the bigger one use a napkin instead of her clothes and the little one when she is finished eating just puts it on the floor?

I know there are no answers for these questions as they are children and it is their job to drive me crazy, but for once I would like there to be a day when everything goes according to plan. Is that too much to ask for?
