Its been a whole week.
Wanted to sit down and blog several times this week, but the busyness of life, and a hard-drive with 1% memory space left, prevented me.
Having a hard time deciding what to blog.
So here's all it:
Condensed in a running dialogue with of course lots of photos peppered in.
Oh yeah, you will also find my Sunday shadow shot, pink Saturday, and i heart macro photo shots snuck in there too.
7 short females: Woo Hoo! You rock! I want to be just like YOU when I grow up! How did you get SO cool, anyway?
Sunday: Three minutes after getting home from church.
Eldest Daughter: Mom I wanna know how to make an apple pie. You promised.
Leah: (sigh) OK… give me like a half hour.
Eldest daughter: A half hour to do what?
Leah: To do nothing.
(she was pleased as punch, to make her first pie.
I officially never have to bake again: bonus).
Leah(talking to herself again): I need to re-arrange our living room. Hmmm…if I move the couch to this wall…oh wait then you'll be able to see this…
Ok I'll just move my chair in the other corner and….CRAP! Forgot about the "toddler artwork behind it"
OK, Tim's cello just has to get put in the other room it just….C'mon…WTF!! I forgot the huge sheetrock square we never got around to wall papering over…
All right I think I will just move the rugs so the colors…SUCK! I forgot…
That's it…this hideous wall paper is coming down. Right now. And the rug is going back.
Caroline: Hey Mama, lets have one last picnic.
Mama: Well its about 50 degrees and kinda windy…
Caroline: (blink, blink big blue eyes) Pu-leeeze!
pink plastic, imitation silver, eco-friendly beverage containers, and wet leaves never looked so good together.
My Pink Saturday Shot.
My i heart macro photo.
Leah: (yes, talking to herself again) Hmmm….its gonna rain. And my oldest three children will be walking home from school soon, and I didn't pack the umbrellas…again.
I could just drive, but I had wine and peanut butter cookies for dinner last night…and slept in and did not work out…I promised myself I would exercise today….Hey Caroline wanna walk in the rain….How fun is that?
Friday: 4:30 pm
Random daughter: Shut up you fat dork!
Random daughter: You shut up.! I HATE you!
Leah: Be quiet, don't yell shut up to each other!
Random daughter(s): Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom!
Leah: Shut Up! I told you no yelling!
More random daughters: Whatever Mom.
That's not fair
I didn't do anything
I don't have to
This sucks Mom
Leah: Ok that is it!
(Leah dramatically sits up and goes into her studio; rummages around, muttering to herself. Comes stomping out with paints, glue, papers, and tape dispensers).
Random daughters: (in a panicked yet fascinated voice) What is that? What are you doing? Mom….Mom…what are you doing? Tell us …Tell us!
Leah: That is for me to know, and you to find out ( I have always wanted to use that line).
Same day: 5:30pm
Eldest Daughter: Umm…so what's up with the BAM…thing??
Leah: Glad you asked… sweetie. (dripping with sarcasm) Every time I here BAM (bad attitude mouth) you get one warning. I get the fun of barking out: BAM! The second time you have to write your name on one of the blank pieces of glued on paper. When you're name goes up, you have to do a real annoying hideous chore, that you will hate.
Random Daughters: What if….? What if….? But… Yeah, but let's say…?
