Today we had a picnic in our torn-up backyard so we could spend some quality time with Daddy!Nothing like fry sauce to bring out the happy in Livi.
The two workers takin' a little ice cream break.
And yes, the picnic was as fun as it looked! I am so blessed to have my happy family. I love them. And now I will talk like the illogical female I am. And I know you'll listen, because you are likewise female (I think, or you at least know one) and you'll get the drift.
Today I miss my Granny. Today I feel sad. Not outwardly and with no core, just kindof sad inside, you know that feeling? I also must wax philosophical about the way people treat each other and the way I treat others and how that will affect my children. I think I need more Vitamin D. I spent the whole day outside with my wonderful neighbors and my great husband, so the cure must be on the way. My skin does still kinda feel warm, and I've been inside for about an hour! Ben and I had a good visit. Don't you love it when it's just a peaceful conversation and you actually have something to talk about and there's even support? I love those times. He even made me feel safe enough to cry and we talked honestly. It felt very cleansing. We even debated Shakespearean names! We might be stuck with two children because we could seriously never agree on a name for another child. So really, as I write this I'm realizing ... I actually had a very nice day. And honestly, I think I'm just stressed and am suffering from PreMenstrual Syndrome, also known as P.M.S. (You may have heard about it. It's a diagnosed medical condition). It always has some sort of demented effect on me. I really do miss my Granny a lot, though, and that is completely unrelated to P.M.S. That is related to the circle of life, as the crazy monkey would say. I just wish I could say "Hi, Grandma!" and give her a kiss, the way I do every time I see her. Ah, well. I'm still glad she's with my Grandpa and doesn't have to deal with the broo-ha-ha down here. Anyway, thanks for listening, I'm feeling better already.
I'm starting to like the band Coldplay more and more, how about you? Right now Olivia is rocking out to Muse, which shows she has some good taste in music. Sometimes a little electric guitar is all you need!
Anyhow, I'm feeling like I spilled my guts out all over in here. But oh well. It's my blog and I'll cry if I want to! That's really all I have to say, other then I'm going to go drown my sorrows in a frozen hot chocolate. And you know what? I know this will be unpopular among my thespian friends, but I never really have enjoyed "the drowning man" by Neil Simon. That scene just annoys the poop out of me. I love Neil (who doesn't); but really.
Congratulations to my friend Tara, who had a brand new baby boy! He's adorable! Yay for new babies!
