Mid Week Kid Pics

Adriana spends literally hours photographing my children, so sometimes sends me a batch. These are from this week. 

These two. 


Pig tails. 

my favorite pic maybe ever.

People always talk about "adulting" and I think it sounds so stupid because I've been an adult for a long time. I don't get it.

But I will say it sucks when you have to spend a lot of time fixing a bunch of stuff.

Yesterday, Babe left for San Diego for many, many days. And he left very, very early. 5am I hear the pitter patter of his expensive shoes walking down our hallway to come and tell me his car won't start. So, he took his car and I was left with a dead one. Thanks, big guy. Anyways, I called AAA, they came to jump the car but the battery was bad, they said. And the car was too new so they don't have a replacement. Sense the irony there? We have a new car so we don't have car trouble. Whatever. So, I took it to Ford, where they had to keep it for many, many hours so they could replace the battery. Which they did.

Then, in the afternoon, I had to be home from work because the Insurance Adjuster ***why is that capitalized*** could come and make sure there was really a hole in my ceiling. There is. The ceiling is now dry, we can start to rebuild.

So, things are moving right along.

Rainy Day Weekend Pics

we hit up two breweries this weekend! we went to el Segundo brewery on our usual Friday night date, and then Sunday when the rain stopped we took the whole family to Common Space brewery. 

The girls painted their faces. 

And Buddy painted this beautiful pic for me. 

Lots of face painting. 

And a trip to yogurt land. 

Last weekend of girl scout cookies. 

Had a little play date with Buddy's friend. 

Not pictured: yoga twice, a visit from Samoi, and that is all!

not too much for our wee fam.
some activities.

girl scout cookie sales,
taking some yoga classes.
ceiling repairs, too.

proud bird trip, perhaps.
if it doesn't rain too much?
hopefully play lots.

Drying out

Can you hear that? Well, no you can't. But I can! 

Here's our new friend, the dryer. The guys did a really good job getting that done. They were able to keep the cabinets intact and not create a whole room out of plastic like they thought they were going to have to do. They will be back tomorrow to check on progress and reassess. This could be on for the next four days, but I'm feeling like maybe we'll be done on Saturday. I have no basis for that feeling.


I am home today so the Roto Rooter guy can cut out a lot of my kitchen ceiling and then set up giant fans to dry everything. It looks like ET is at my house.
