MY Ten Minutes

Recently we heard the director of a single moms group say that she gives each mom 10 minutes for a pity party and they have to move on and deal with life. Well, today I need my ten minutes. I started this blog at 2:14pm, it is now 2:17, and I seven minutes before I have to move on and deal with life. So what has got me to this state a constipated, overtired, doesn't want to walk, can only whine requests, 3 1/2 year old, an upcoming doctor visit, customer service at the doctors office and car dealer ship, my new MOPS group, missing my old MOPS group/friends, a sermon from Sunday that is just sticking with me, a quote from my profound husband that is just not leaving my mind. I could go on and on, but I have one minute left. I don't need answers, help, or input, I just need to have my ten minutes and now I will move on and deal with life.

2nd Annual Osborne Pumpkin Patch

This was actually my first trip to the Osborne Pumpkin Farm, last year Elise went without me. It was great day for pumpkin picking. Although I don't have any pictures of anyone actually picking a pumpkin we did come home with some pretty cute pumpkins. Elise true to form found a small white pumpkin which she carried around the entire patch. Thanks to Aunt Naomi's wonderful suggestion Elise now wants to paint her pumpkin rather than carve it.
(PS. I could get the pictures to move around so they are in reverse order for the event of the day.)

First Preschool Field Trip

It's been a couple of weeks since we went to the zoo with Elise's preschool class, but I am just now getting the pictures off the camera. It was beautiful day and although I brought the stroller Elise walked the entire zoo!

Sad Saturday

As I sit in my very quiet and still house on this sunny Saturday, I find my attitude is not as sunny. I am not sure if I woke up on the wrong side of the bed or if it was certain monkey climbing in my side of the bed at 7:30 AM. Maybe it was the 20 minutes wrestling match that took place while the monkey was getting comfortable. Although I am pretty sure it could have been the fact that the monkey woke up with more energy than I will ever know or have in my lifetime. I was not wanting to feed the monkey any breakfasting fearing I might add fuel to the energy fire that was already burning out of control. Before I could come a decision my WONDERFUL husband took note of my poor choice in attitudes and offered to take the monkey with him on some errands. It was almost too much for my awful attitude as tears started to fill my eyes. So now I am off to enjoy shower and while I wash my body I plan to wash my attitude as well. Goodbye Sad Saturday.... Hello Starting over Saturday!
