Daybook~ A Real Week of Fall

For Today…October 29, 2012 Outside my window…the sun is shining, it’s cold outside.  Okay, chilly is a more accurate word.  Whatever you say, it’s nice. I am wearing…black yoga pants and a blue shirt.  Might want to think about changing out of my workout clothes soon. I am listening…to Lola bark.  And that’s fine with […]

On St. Francis

I may have just jinxed myself. We blessed the dog. Yes, the dog that runs when the gate is open, is an annoying barker, digs, and sheds…what’s beyond trifecta? She’ll probably live until she’s 20 now. And I will have nobody to blame except myself.  And that beloved saint, St. Francis of Assisi. You don’t […]

My Newest Student

They say every child is different.  I know this.  Down to my core, I know this.  And yet, I am still surprised at times by just how different this one is from the others. Some days, I think he is as lazy as a teenager. Others, I think he may be my smartest kid ever. […]

I’ve had this post sitting in my inbox unfinished since school started.  A great idea, Daybook in pictures…except my mood is perpetually shitty and it’s not getting any better.  Especially when my kid who can bust out a narrative has all of a sudden forgotten how to do that.    So for now, maybe pictures […]

Last night was amazing.  Simply amazing. Another killer Old 97’s show. Yes, another.  They just do such a great job every single time I see them, I can’t decide which show is best. Okay, I admit, that show almost two years was probably the best ever…You just can’t beat getting tickets to a sold out […]

Petroglyph National Monument

We took the kids hiking at Petroglyph in Albuquerque Sunday morning.  You can tell we’re inexperienced hikers because Lance and I are constantly calling out to the kids to be careful.  At one point BH climbed over rocks and I couldn’t find him.  Squirt and Goose followed, but still, I was pretty nervous. Snax didn’t […]

Hiking is just walking…

And it’s boring… You would have thought we were hiking this instead of a child friendly trail.

White Sands National Monument

We power drove after Lance got off work last Friday to Las Cruces, New Mexico so that we could go here. Someone randomly mentioned White Sands thinking that we would be driving in that direction on our way to Durango.  We weren’t supposed to drive in that direction. After researching White Sands, it became a […]

The Final Leg

I’m documenting our vacation backwards.  For today.  Tomorrow I’ll probably skip back to the beginning, but I was just so anxious to see the photos Lance took today. And they are great. The Dallas Arboretum is such a beautiful place and with the Chihuly exhibit, it’s even better. I’ve been dying to see this garden […]
