haiku friday

poor, neglected blog.
why have i forsaken you?
don't despair, readers.

a change, is coming.
things are going to settle. 
all i'll have is time.

just kidding you guys. no way
that is happening.

15th month check up

Josie continues to be in the 98th percentile in height and weight.

Her cold is basically gone and she looked and sounded good.

She didn't even holler until she got stuck with a needle, twice.

Busy week with little moments of quiet

The workplace! It's busy. All sorts of upcoming events and meetings about this and that.

It's also so hot it makes people crazy. Though today seems better, I think?

Also I had two trips and then a baby sick for ever! I was maybe feeling like my head was going to explode.

But then today the nanny had a doctor appointment so I had to stay home and walk the Sash to first grade and take a walk with Josie. And now I am waiting for the nanny to get here so I can go to my meeting. But in the meantime, Josie is napping and it is nice and quiet.

Even though it was over a week ago, I really want to tell you about our trip to Bozeman!

The flight was delayed which was terrible but these girls had a great time at the airport. 

We stayed in an adorable little air b n b that was well appointed and comfortable. 

Roxy was the resident pooch, and she just hung around outside. 

Courtesy used to be a big hit with Sash, but no one is really a big hit with Joze. 

This is the enormous lawn outside the community center where the rehearsal dinner was held the night before the wedding. 

plaid in bozeman! 

fuzzy but damn cute 


getting my hair done 

the scenery 

the park near our place 

the ice cream shop near our place 

big sky 

scenes from the wedding. it was gorgeous and cold! 

the day after party was super fun, too. 

you can only drink 3 beers in each brewery, so choose wisely! 

i like the flowers in front of this house. 

a brunch without mimosas is just a sad, late breakfast #truth 

flight home, little josie slept almost the whole way.

haiku friday

poor coughing josie.
what a long, drawn out cold this.
i forget sometimes.

thankful she's at home,
and that we dont have daycare
for this one at least.

i brought sash to work,
because there's no school today.
hiding her in here.

sicky kiddo

Dude! Nothing turns the whole week around like a sick baby!

Baby Josie had a fever starting on Sunday, I guess? When we came home from Montana. Then it was pretty high on Monday. Then, she was up all night on Monday night.

Then, Tuesday I stayed home from work to take her to the doctor and sleep a little bit.

Then, she didn't have a fever anymore, but man is she grouchy.

So tired!! Won't eat anything. All coughing and yuck yuck.

So what's today? Thursday? She slept from 8pm til 730 this morning and woke up grouchy as can be. Still no appetite, still coughing.

I just went by at lunch time because I had a morning meeting and she looked a lot happier. She was eating a string cheese. Hopefully she has turned a corner!!

Anyways, I'll let you know how she is tomorrow and then we'll resume regular blog activities.

Los Angeles

They are tearing down the sports arena and building a soccer stadium. 

They are tearing down the 6th street bridge and building a new one.

The homeless encampment under the 110 is open for business.

Just a few pics I took today.

Weekend pics and a haiku

I'm The Breast cancer walk
Was so much fun, also hard.
I loved it so much.

Is a cute little beach town,
We got to know it.

The first day was hard,
The second day was better.
I did 26!

haiku friday

there's cute, and then there's
cute. i mean come on, people.
who can handle this?

with a helmet on, and dress.

i just can't take it.
