What was I thinking?

Mallory has inherited her mommy's love of whipped cream. Yes, I will admit that I taught her this. Like mother, like daughter comes to mind.

What Daddy does best

This was taken at a family reunion. I had to do a double take before I finally figured out why it looked funny. Yes, I have a dorky husband. Thank God I love him.

Just plain tired

I'm not feeling witty these days. Why you ask? Well, I've been trying to figure that out myself. Here are a few things that have crossed my mind:

1. I have a toddler. Although I love her to death, she is SSSOOOO trying these days. I'm beginning to regret that she has mommy's personality.
2. I have a toddler (at work). Okay, it may sound funny to compare work to a toddler, but it's so darn similar. You are dealing with clients who always want their way when sometimes it's just not a good idea.
3. I have a toddler (they just look like dogs). I'm not sure what has taken posession of my dogs these days but they are driving me crazy. I'm trying to keep the house clean since it's on the market and these two are trying to bring in every spec of dirt and rock in the back yard.

Okay, if all that isn't enough, we're dealing with the heat. Damn it's hot. I've been to the doctor to check on my thyroid issue, and sure enough it's going UP, UP, UP and AWAY. So, hopefully next week I'll get my prescription and get back on track. I hate feeling out-of-sorts.

Who knew this was going to be a whine?

A Voracious Vocabulary

Mallie has an impressive vocabulary these days. Yes, I can say that because I'm her parent and I'm allowed to brag. It's just amazing to be talking to her and all of the sudden she responds back with a word we've never heard her say before. Here's a quick list of what she says on a regular basis:

What's that?

There are many more, but mommy is too exhausted from all the bragging to continue.

I'm learning every day

I had lunch with Tracy on Saturday. We had a wonderful time and had talked non-stop for three hours before we realized it (whoops!). It was nice to go out with her without Mallory. I felt like a real adult and all!

During the course of the conversation we talked about some work-related issues that continue to give me a heavy heart. But, there's not a lot I can do to change some of the issues. And, even if I could, I'm not convinced that I should.

I think I'm just having growing pains.

Moving on up

So...was called into Reggie's office Friday afternoon and was told that he's promoting me to senior consultant. WOW! I'm not sure exactly what that means yet ... he wanted to get the paperwork in and get it all approved before talking details.

Not sure I'm ready for this. The critic in me says no, but everyone else is saying yes.

Calgon, take me away's been a busy week. Just a snapshot of some things going on:

1. We did decide to put the house on the market.
2. When you put your house on the market, there is lots of stuff to do.
3. Yes, you have to clean your closets when you put your house on the market.
4. The house really does need to be clean when you put it on your market.
5. It's really hard to get a clean house when you have a 20mo (and a 30yo).

Did I mention that we're putting the house on the market?! Well, as you can tell I feel as if much of my time has been consumed by this step. But, it really hasn't. Just seems as if it's looming before us.
