these crazy fall temps have us in a jacket to start and wishing for shorts by the end.
yep...this 2.2 mile track takes us about an hour but who's counting.:)
we were on our own this morning.
no buddy to count the wholly worms with.
we still stopped to watch a few though.
and the only thing that kept us moving those last few minutes was seeing if we could see 20 before the car.
aubrey and i have been doing the sweetest thing lately when i wake her up.
when i walk into her room she pretends to be sleeping and rolls away and covers herself up.
the conversation goes like this:
mommy! (said with enthusiasm and giggles!)
and she rolls over and grabs me by the neck and i smother her with kisses.
now that's a good way to greet the day.
monday night as i was tucking her in, i think she might have talked to me about her first school problem.
"mom...when jake stepped on my foot he said 'sorry audrey instead of sorry aubrey!"
"hmmmm, what do you think you should do?"
after we went through how some names are similar and that lots of people call janey jamie by accident too, we came up with what she might say.
then she shrugged and said, "maybe i could just let it go."
we picked riley up for our lunch date with warm oatmeal cookies in the car.
they were just good ol' slice n bake.
but you think they were fresh from a gourmet bakery or something.
scored some mom points there.
it was serene and quiet...till we got there.
and low and behold the path led to one of our favorite places.
riley said, "quick mom, give me your phone...look at that light!"
so here's the grouchy part.
i get home and start working on updating iTunes so i can sync my newly updated phone and it was frustrating and took me forever and aubrey watched way too much tv and i got a headache and yuck i can't stand when i do stuff like that! obsess over some totally insignificant thing and i just can't walk away from it till i figure it out!! ugh! totally ruined the rest of my day. i got it figured out and all was good, but at what cost really? my stress level was sky high and we all know if mama's havin a rough day...everyone else usually follows!:) i soooo know why that is...but totally a bummer right?
anyway...tomorrow is a no computer no phone no stress day for me!
i am playing sofia and building puzzles.
have a happy day...and if you have the chance...stay in the woods and off the computer!:)
