  • Heading out in the rain for my photography class. Won't this be fun. šŸ™‚ #
  • Back from my photography class. Wow am I cold. I really hope some of the shots turn out. #
  • We are late for preschool. I am not waking the sleeping toddler for anything right now. Sigh. #
  • I didn't realize that it was a clothing optional day. The toddler has stripped off everything but the diaper. (for now) #
  • On the old laptop w/the external monitor because @AnthonyFloyd forgot to give me the password to the new one. Tried all the usual suspects. #
  • Never seen anyone eat as fast as Q just did. He ate a whole pkg of oatmeal in 30 secs. Spoon wasn't quick enough so he stuffed in in by hand #

  • Though I guess burning all the calories with the cleaning and dancing make the sweat a good thing too. #gettingmycardio #
  • If I do bike to NV on friday, will 45 minutes be enough time to get there? And will anyone mock me if I walk it up part of the long hill? #

  • I sit and wait alone. . . in my room. #
