Good Intentions

humming bird

I meant to post yesterday, but somehow I blinked and the day was over. Well I will make up for it today. Or not … we’ll see. So what is going on?

  • We leave for Nashville in about a week (our insane neighbor and his pit bulls and AK-47s is watching our place, so don’t even think about it). I’m both excited and a bit overwhelmed getting ready to go. The trip is absolutely jam-packed with stuff to do and people to see.
  • I have been finding it incredibly hard to get up early for the past couple of weeks. I want to snap out of it, but there are so many things to do at night I’m finding it hard to get to bed on time.
  • We have an awesome hummingbird hanging out in the tree in our back yard. We’ve seen her a few times sitting on her eggs and flying around. I’m hoping we might be able to glimpse her babies in a few weeks.
  • Speaking of wildlife, we were driving around last night looking for some land and we turned a corner and saw a black rabbit sitting on the side of the road. It looked just like my sister’s bunny, Hoover and definitely not wild! I thought it had gotten loose or something and then I spied about two more black rabbits! And a grey one! And a white one!! The lot on the corner is a huge farm/ranch thing and they had tons of animals, including, it seems a bunch of rabbits that sort of run wild. They seemed much smarter than the rabbits in our ‘hood as they weren’t playing chicken with cars.
  • I am finally getting my hair cut today after WAY too long. My stylist was on maternity leave and it is down to my shoulders again. I will be glad to have it short enough that I don’t have to blow-dry it every day.
  • Ii am also getting my new pimp tooth installed today, gold y’all (though covered in tasteful porcelain). What a fun way to spend $250 (not including what insurance covered).
  • Tabby is now the proud owner of her very own Camelbak. We got it in blue and green and hopefully Ben will be able to use it when she outgrows it. She has been quite a good hiker and we thought it was time. She was overjoyed and tried it on right over her jim jams and tutu (I was thinking of Bonnie in Toy Story 3 in the last scene where she’s wearing overalls, galoshes, a tutu and a macaroni necklace).
  • We will be gone this weekend too (remember the neighbor!!!), heading to the mountains to check out my uncle’s new place. There will be hiking and boating and general merriment. I am very much looking forward to it.
  • Loki, who is staying with our friends while we’re in Nashville, is hanging at the vet’s this weekend. He’s getting his yearly checkup and shots and also getting groomed. It’s like a spa weekend for him, only really really crappy and even more expensive.
  • As part of the pre-Nashville planning I’ve been boxing up the remaining Tabby baby clothes for my sister in law. It has been a nice trip down memory lane, but sad too. It kind of makes me want another baby. There are so many great reasons for being done, but it’s all gone so fast and I sort of want it to last just a little longer.
  • I bought the kids a couple of special things for our trip. I got Ben a copy of Bee Movie. My coworker’s grandson loves it and hopefully Ben will too. I got Tabby a  new DS game as well. There are a few greatlists on Amazon of DS games that are easier for kids who can’t read to play. She’s been so in love with her Dora game, I thought it would be a nice treat for her. I also got her an early-reader Skippyjon Jones book that I’m sure will be a hit.
  • I have been watching Greek on Netflix while I run lately and it’s been great. It definitely holds my interest and the stories movie fast enough for running (does that make sense?). And now that I can stream Netflix on my phone, I can even watch at the gym. W00t!
