I'm not sure what to do with this. Zack likes to throw clothes as a game. Fine, whatever, no big deal.

Yesterday, however, he takes the shorts (or whatever they were), pretends to wipe his ass with them, then throws them at me with a huge smile on his face.

Um, where does he get this stuff? And yes, I laughed. Who wouldn't? It was funny.

But seriously, where did he get that from? *shaking head*

I'm going to blame it on Dave.

A Day At The Beach

We went to Ocean City on Saturday for a day trip. It was fantastic!!! We let Zack wake us up so that he would be fully rested and not a grump - he woke up at 8am. Thanks to Dave getting everything packed up and directions printed up the night before while I was at work, it barely took us any time to get out of the house. We stopped for breakfast, gas & sand toys at the store and were on the road at 9am.

By 12:30, we were on the beach. Thank God for that dvd player in the car, I swear, it's wonderful. The kids watched The Princess Bride on the way down there and loved it.

We slathered on the sunscreen and hit the beach. Decided to rent an umbrella and chairs - very worth the money. Zack was scared of the water at first, but eventually warmed up to it about an hour or so before we left for the day. He had a lot of fun playing in the sand. I got to lay in the sun and actually got an hour or so to myself as Dave had taken Zack down near the water to build sand castles and Cassie & Alex were playing in the water together. Heaven, I tell you.

A little after 5pm, the umbrella guy came to get his stuff back, we packed up and went to meet one of Dave's co-workers for dinner. He and his girlfriend found this very nice, over-priced, restaurant right on the water that had a kids' menu. Very nice of them to think of us having kids. The food was excellent though - a very fine meal. We ate outside and the boys had fun playing in the sand when they were done eating.

Funny thing was on the way to dinner (which took us all of 15 minutes to get to) Zack totally conked out in the car. He doesn't nap anymore, so he must have been SO tired to have fallen asleep. He actually didn't wake up until we got seated at our table. Of course, he stayed awake for the majority of the ride home, falling asleep just around 10pm and about 10 minutes away from home.

Here are a couple pictures from the trip - they are probably big and will throw off my sidebar, but I'm too lazy to re-size them.

Zack 3.5

He's turning into such a little person now. He amazes me. Such a sense of humor this one has - he makes jokes all the time, in his little 3-year-old way. This kid actually plays a roll-playing game online, even though he can't read. He's a level 15 now bah hahahahaha

Of course, the site is down right now and I'm trying to explain to him that he can't play. That is not going well.

I can't believe he's three and a half and yet, I can. We were looking at baby pictures of him the other day and I can hardly remember those times now. Seems like he's always been walking and talking. I love that boy so much - my heart swells every time I see him.

Now, if I could just break him of the "poophead" phase that he's in. He calls everyone he sees "poophead". That's my boy.

I still think I'm a little crazy. I was on such a high for so long, then I had a bad day Wednesday and I haven't recovered from it yet. I just feel kinda blah right now. I haven't even thought about Father's Day on Sunday yet, let alone planned anything for Dave. I'm behind on my PTA crap. God, I can't wait to be done with that!!

Of course, I do have things to be happy about. Dave's been exercising with me regularly and we're going running later today. I'm still a bit bummed about my lack of results in the losing weight department, but I'm trying to not let it get me down.

So today I promise to improve my mood while I'm alone. It's always improved when Dave gets home - I can't be sad around him, he makes me laugh too much. We will have a date night tonight and watch a movie. Definitely something to look forward to.

Feeling Down...

I'm having a bad day. I'm not going to whine about it, but I'm sad today. I really screwed up at work and even though my boss is not even mad at me in the least, I can't stop beating myself up about it.

I did a little retail therapy for myself on the way home. Perhaps the new chaunies I bought (thanks to J for that new term, I can't stop using it) will make me feel better. I feel very big, fat, and unsexy right now. Nice lace undergarments should help with that.

That and jumping my husband when I get home from work tonight.

Sigh. I wish I felt better right now :(

Riddle me this...

Why is it that no one notices or cares that Princess Leia totally makes out with Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back? I just saw it with my own eyes.

They are twins. That's nasty.

George Lucas should be seriously ashamed of himself.

He's a nasty, nasty man.

So Productive!!!!!!!!!

I feel like a new person. I know I can't stop talking about this exercising thing, but it's really transforming my life. I feel so much happier all the time now. I'm so much less stressed. David has noticed that my emotional state is much better now. In fact, I should be the in throws of PMS right now and I'm not. I got a tad bit testy yesterday, but nothing like it usually is. I have all this extra energy to go out and get stuff done.

This morning, we went running, then did a major grocery shopping trip. I've started working on the pile of "wait until later" laundry that's in the basement. Comforters, towels, sheets, and such that I always put off to make sure all the clothes are clean. We're going to take the kids to see Kicking and Screaming a little later today.

Right now, yes, I'm actually relaxing. But, I just feel so great right now. This is such a change for me.

Cassie told us that Susan finally contacted her a few days ago. That happened to coincide with a very large child support payment that we received into our account. I don't know how they got that much from her in one chunk, but I'm not going to argue with it. I guess when she saw that chunk come out, she was reminded that she actually has children. Yes, this ties into my previous subject. Normally, just hearing about and all the lame-ass excuses that she piles on Cassie is enough to send me into a tizzy. And it usually ruins any type of good mood that I'm in.

Not today. I talked to Cassie about it a little bit, asked her how she was feeling and moved on. Fuck Susan. If she's going to pass the buck and blame everyone but herself for why she doesn't contact her children, that's her own problem. My job is to make sure that they are well taken care of and loved, daily. She can make up all her stupid excuses and act like it's no big deal that she didn't even call her childre on their birthdays last month all she wants, but I'm not going to let it affect me. I won't give her the satisfaction of knowing that she gets under my skin. She's a loser.

My mother-in-law is coming for a visit on Thursday. I'm looking forward to that for sure :) Ok, I'll stop babbling now.
