The Cave

THIS....

patton12

... is where I have been. 

I finally got lonely for human contact in my little “emotional cave”.  Took a deep breath last night, and decided to peek my head out ~ you know, see how the rest of the world is getting along without me. 

Much to my surprise, the Universe didn’t miss me much, carried on like nothing had gone missing of any importance.  But seriously, I am glad to be back.  Glad to have rescued my sanity, sent the anxiety and depression packing for good(I hope), and looking forward to a great summer!!!!

Missed you all so much.  Can’t wait to catch up ;)

Trinity graduated from Kindergarten last week, and is still managing to make me laugh.

Playing Pretend ~ Leave your Ego at the Door

“Mommy, let’s play pretend.  You can be my daughter and I’ll be the mom.  So, that means I get to be bossy and wear LOTS of makeup.”

“Mommy, let’s pretend we’re twin sisters.  We’ll both be 19.  So, that means that I pretend to be older, and you get to be young again with smooth skin.”

Mommy, let’s play family.  Baby Sadie will be my little girl, I’ll be her mommy, and you get to be the Grandma because you have all the wrinkles.”

The Escape Artist

It happened.

I don’t know who freaked out more, me or the rodent.

I heard Trinity screaming... then, I to my horror I saw this

Hamster ball.

No hamster.

Throw some wasps and a few hairy spiders into the mix, and you have my worst nightmare come true.

But, I’m happy to say that cool heads prevailed, and we coaxed her out from under the couch with some cucumber.

No hamsters were harmed during the making of this post.

My nerves, however, are a different story.

Valium anyone???
