Real Life


*Unfortunate casualty of an instagram attempt gone wrong: (in which I tossed the phone, instead of the rubber ball, onto the concrete floor to get the boy's attention and then screamed out loud when I saw the extent of injury sustained) 

New phone is up next moth. Good thing, because it still hurts every time I look down.

Also, hoping you mid week is off to a better start than mine. I'm currently swimming my way out a mass of overdue paper work, DMV issues, business re-organization, valentine crafts and calendar mix-ups. And then we have hip hop class tonight and a ton of teepees to finish by tomorrow. So if you are by chance reading this - and have placed on order -  that teepee is coming. I can assure you, a bit behind schedule, but most definitely headed your way.

On the bright side, we're looking forward to this weekend to be reunited with out beloved RV, on the beach for a small bbq. It's suppose to be cold, but we figure getting out, and visiting our summer home would be a nice little break for everyone. Arlo has a new skateboard he's obsessed with testing on the boardwalk (he's watched Dogtown about 15 times since last Thursday) and Leon lives and dreams that RV since the day he stepped foot in it as a baby, so he's pretty darn excited about just sitting in it and eating a peanut butter sandwich.
Simple things.


Until then, chores & obligations are calling.

First up: Arlo's dance class (in which everybody secretly wonders how a kid with those moves and that confidence belongs to the bedraggled hippy in the waiting room trying to find the pack of crackers she swore she packed to calm the loudest boys in the place without much success) Let's be honest. Dance moms can be tough. And I stick out like a sore thumb.

Happy Wednesday,

    1. Hey anonymous - what the hell are you talking about?! I'm confused.

      You link us to bad credit sites and stuff. No one here is interested in checking their credit, or scoring loans. In fact, we visit these kinds of spaces to forget about bad credit. So, please leave us alone if you don't have anything significant to hand over.

      Thanks.

  9. I know that scream! The one where you come face to face with a smashed iPhone screen?! it seems almost TOO dramatic but really it's exactly the right reaction! And you know, YOU KNOW, that everyone who witnesses it just squeezes their phone that little bit tighter and thanks the heavens above that it wasn't them.
    it's horrible.
    Have a fab weekend!

  11. Does your site have a contact page? I'm having a tough time locating it but, I'd like to shoot you an email.
    I've got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

    Here is my blog post - social bookmarking service

  12. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's
    simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a awesome job
    with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Opera.
    Outstanding Blog!
