Update! (Via lazy picture post of course)

20120818-113034.jpg

Want an update? I’m struggling a bit (a lot) with most everything: work is hard and crazy, my car is mostly broken and I need another one, I am constantly feeling like I am disappointing most of the people I know, my house needs cleaning and I’m broke. There.
Also, my daughter is hilarious, I own a beautiful house and I do have a lot of people who care about me. And my health. I have that too. And I’m not starving, I like my job despite it’s hardness, and I have Taylor around.
So there it is. The conflicts that are my woe is me attitude and the blessings that I have in my life. Blah.
I am currently on a train by myself headed to the wedding of two wonderful beautiful people. I was and still am conflicted over whether or not I should have come on this trip. What with my car problems, dirty house and a child who really just wants me and cried like the dickens as I drove away.
But here I am. Ready to see a slough of high school friends (my two best from high school included). Should I be here? Who knows. Now to shake this gloomy perspective before I get there.

And so as not to leave you with a sour bad mood taste in your mouth, I present to you my life in pictures, since I have no energy to write up the stories. I’m hoping a dredge though my photos will brighten my mood. Here goes…

Ok, so now I feel a little better (if not more guilty for being so ungrateful). So thanks for letting me vent, Internet. I promise I’ll come back in a better mood. Maybe.

Lazy Picture Post: Too Busy for Blogging

Busy, busy, busy, busy, sick kid, thistles, busy, busy, busy, gym, busy, work, busy, going a little nuts and in need of a vacation, busy. Yep. That pretty much sums it up. Time to kick it into gear. I’ve been neglecting my 30 while 30 list, and November is going to come quick. My resolution: cross at least one thing off my list this weekend. So much to do, so much to do.
Please excuse the crappy picture quality. I’m too busy to fix any crap pictures in photoshop. I’m sure you understand.

I bought her these pajamas when she was newborn and never thought she’d be big enough to fit them. Sigh.

Lazy Picture Post: Easter Edition

What a lovely Easter day. Family, sun, eggs, chickens, Easter dresses and cake. Ahhhhhh. I’m loving spring so far. How about you?

Lazy Picture Post 2

I have no motivation to write. So look at some pictures. We’ve been really busy and I’m in desperate need of sitting still and doing nothing. After we take a family trip to the zoo today, that is 🙂

Lazy Picture Post: Mini Vacation Edition

Josephine and I are on a little vacation at my mom and stepdad’s house in Mt. Shasta (Taylor is home guarding the house, so don’t try to break in, ok). My sister and nephew flew down from Washington so we’re having a good old cousin get together.
And on to the pictures.

Lazy Picture Post

Check it out. This is a new thing I’m going to start doing when I’m too lazy to write anything of substance. It’s called a lazy picture post. Basically, just snapshots from the last week or so. Possibly with commentary, possibly without. The world is my oyster, people.
Here we go…..
