I must apologize for not posting a blog yesterday... I was buried under a mountain of laundry.

Jessica is home from camp!!!! Totally exhausted, but back... and we are so happy to have her here with us again.

On a side note, check out this hilarious picture I found when I googled laundry pile....

I mean, that might be a load of laundry all on it's own.... it's HUGE! Definitely don't want to see the girl that those belong to. Holy Crap!

Anyway, Jessica came home monday afternoon. She was sooo exhausted! She went to bed at 6:15 and slept till 7:20 the next morning!!!! I guess I could have written tuesday's blog while the kids were at camp, but my head felt like it was gonna explode from the torture I call Alyssa.

It all started when she decided to wake up at 1 am and not go back to sleep. I turned on the Sarah McLachlan CD she likes to listen to when she goes to bed. It usually takes 2-3 songs. I heard the whole CD and she was still not asleep. Finally, not even sure what time, she fell asleep.... unfortunately it was in my bed, lying sideways with her legs on top of me.

So I woke up exhausted as usual, with a terrible migraine, and a pain that shot through my head every time I bent down. During breakfast, I left Alyssa alone for a few minutes to get Will's swim stuff together for camp. When I heard the loud crash, I ran downstairs and found Alyssa and the floor and the table and the chairs covered in milk and reese's puffs. She apparently didn't like Will's breakfast and threw his ceramic bowl (which he made himself and uses every single morning) onto the floor.

Later, when I recovered from that mess, I decided to take her to Border's to read books. She was hungry, so I gave her some lunch... (pasta). I looked at some books for a few minutes and when I looked back at Alyssa I almost lost it. Actually I think I told her that she is the worst child in the whole world. She chewed up the noodles and then spit them onto herself and her stroller and the floor.

I seriously wanted to just go back to bed and start the day over!!! Or even just go to bed and take a nap..... :)

At least I know today can't be any worse.

Although, you never know....

P.S. I was semi-productive today despite the migraine and crazy child, and had a really nice barbecue dinner with my sister and sister in law. Thanks for coming guys!


  1. LOL! Alyssa cracks me up! Look at that face! It's like she's saying, "Yeah, im bad, and i know it, and you love me anyway because im so darn cute!"

    and those laundry pictures are hysterical. thats how i felt at 7 PM last night when i realized i had about an hour and a half to do 4 loads of laundry.

  2. Yikes!!!!

    She's lucky she's so cute!

    How did Will deal with the loss of the cereal bowl?

  3. My pleasure. Thanks for cooking (especially after that day)! Dinner was delicious and it was good to see everyone.

    Um, I'd hate to ever meet someone who wears that size underwear.

  4. That guy holding those undies looks pretty darn happy though, maybe hes into that sort of shamu type of woman!
    I def agree w/ Shosh, that Alyssa has got u wrapped around her cute little finger!

    What did she do to her belly, btw ;)?
    (and you're pretty brave to allow and ice cream cone in the CAR, I must say!!)

  6. Hey, that dude found my panties. I've been looking for them. Also been looking for my feet. Sheesh, I need a diet.
