A Week In the Life. Tuesday. 11.30.2010

Sandler hates all jeans except his one pair of skinny jeans.

Its a battle every morning if those suckers aren't clean.
Sound off on alarm, but woke up precisely on time.
That stupid Economics paper will go on to rule my entire day.
Mar got extremely emotional while watching Ramona & Beezus.
We painted our nails,
We listened to Ingrid Michaelson, (inspired by Ramona & Beezus movie),
We played "pony match",
Mar requested Ramen noodles.

If it appears that my day is quite boring, or uneventful - make no mistake about it, its because it WAS.

This was a lame and lazy Tuesday.

The weather was the kind that didn't tempt you for a second to come out in,
Only had enough coffee for one cup,
I was dedicated to my Economics paper that was due.
I snuck in time to spend with Marley-Jane and she was amazingly patient and understanding
of my neglect to her.
She snuggled with Reese and talked to her through gritted teeth.
I owe that little girl big time.

The haze of laziness didn't disappear even when the boys got home - indoors all day at school they were sluggish and tired too.

The house normally being loud and bright was quiet and dim so they maintained the mood and laid low. Jude did homework, Bing fell asleep watching a recorded (and already watched by him) Arkansas Razorbacks game.

The Post Office is hell this time of year, so Sean is working hard and late for the next couple of months. He hates the way his hands feel, his body aches, and he said he could never do that his whole life.

He brought home O'Charleys Loaded Baked Potato Soup and rolls - which was perfection to his wife that was brain dead from typing and staring at a computer screen all day.

Jude and I started the Harry Potter series (I have read 1-4) but I am super stoked to start this little fictional journey with him. We both love to read, and this is our time together. I love sharing the same story with him. *Fun fact* I purchased the first book while living in England. If you'll notice - there the first book is titled "Harry Potter and the PHILOSOPHERS Stone".

Here's hoping that today will be a bit more brighter, cheerier, and eventful.

A Week In the Life. Monday. 11.29.2010

Case of the Mondays, woke up at the time the bus pulls up in front of the house.
Drove the boys to school, sang Black Eyed Peas at the top of our lungs.
(Jude changed the words up to include the gigantic inflatable Frosty on top of Wendy's.)
Mar whistles, and sings at random.
Economics paper looming over my head thats due tomorrow.
Dental appointments were scheduled that are way overdue.
Tickets for WWE bought. (Sandler Christmas)
Spent $6 at the post office to mail my sister a $1.50 bottle of maraschino cherries.
Library. (Return Charlie & Lola DVD and check out books on Famous Explorers for Jude's Explorer mobile)
Zumba class. (First time back in a couple of weeks - needless to say my body was extremely jiggly)
Finished decorated the tree.
Stayed up until 1230 am working on Economics paper.

8. Sundays are for making chive piles.
9. Sundays are for 8 year olds chopping the butter.

12. Sundays are for iPhones that are in love.
13. Sundays are for writing out the invitations to your birthday party.
14. Sundays are for close ups.

18. Sundays are for Ooey Gooey cake to disappear.
19. (repeat from photo #1)

I completed my week in the life.
I said I was going to do it...and I did it...


A Day In The Life. Saturay. 09192009

1. Sandler wondering what the big deal was about eating a fried chicken leg for breakfast?

2. Jude and Mar vegged out watching The Dennis the Menace movie.

3. A book ordered for Amazon to assist me in my new Book Club endeavor.

4. My reflection inthe fish bowl. And also our fish "Hydranoid" that has been a part of the family since early March. We are astounded and glad that he is still around.

5. Sean watching the UT & Florida game. (HUGE RIVALS) Also Sean is going for the "Alan" look. The hilarious guy from the movie The Hangover.

6. Toys of the kids that I was going to sell on Craig's List but for some reason it felt like my heart was being ripped out of my chest and being sold as well. So sentimental. I will just have to save these for the grandkids.

7. I had a date night with My baby daddy :) and these are the cups that I set out with names for the babysitter, my kids, and Jude's friends.

8. My three in the car on the way to do a few errands.

9. Sandler trying to take a bite of Marley Jane's candy necklaces - got this shot literally SECONDS before the necklace snapped and the candy went all over Target's floor.

10. Sean listening to the Dr. Dre headphones (beats by dre.) in Best Buy...those things are so rad.
11. Sean @ Outback Steakhouse.

12. Borders after outback. Yes we are nerds. We love stacks of magazines and browsing expensive cookbooks for recipe ideas and sipping coffee @ 10 @ night.
