Okay, I haven't posted in almost a month. Lame, lame, lamety, lame. And I can't blame it all on "life getting in the way." Oh, I've had plenty of life the last month, it feels like it's been crazy, but I've had plenty of time to sit down for 15 minutes and post a blog. Laziness is a real downfall to my personality and I suppose my reality. After we get Maylee down to sleep, I just feel like totally vegging out on the couch and catching up on some TV on my DVR. So, sorry to the 4 people who read my blog. BTW, if you don't use Google Reader to read the blogs you subscribe to, I highly recommend it. I used to just keep up with the blogs using the Google dashboard that I have since I have a blog, but the Reader is so much better. You see the whole post and it's easy to visit the actual blog if you wanna leave a comment and such. Just a little suggestion.
So let's see. What's been happening? Hot weather. So we got Maylee's little inflatable pool out. The water was really cold, but Brandon and I put our feet in and enjoyed the sun on our faces and our feet in a nice cool kiddie pool. Maylee like splashing in it, but wasn't really interested in actually getting in. She put her feet in with us though:
Maylee is talking up a storm now and pretty much can communicate anything she wants with us. There are a few times during the day that I just don't know what she's saying and she'll get really mad and I'll feel really badly, but all in all she's doing so great. She's in that "terrible twos" stage, but I'd say she's a good girl 92% of the time. She doesn't always wake up in a great mood, but she usually breaks out of that funk pretty quickly. She watches entirely too much TV, but I do have to say that the TV's on, but she's playing with her toys or we're playing together and she doesn't always just sit on her tooshie watching TV. But if Yo-Gabba-Gabba comes on, her but is planted and she's enthralled. Of course when they get up to dance or something she's right there with them!
I mentioned before about catching up on TV on my DVR after Maylee goes to sleep. We actually still have some season finales we haven't watched yet. We haven't gotten to House or Chuck yet, but I hope to soon. My mom has been on us to watch the House finale, cause it's apparently really good. We LOVED the season finale of Grey's Anatomy, well as much as you can love a shooter coming in and trying to kill everyone, but the drama of it had us so anxious and sweaty. It was a couple of hours of really intense TV. One of our favorite TV shows, Burn Notice, has started for the summer. We love that show, great story lines and character, and it doesn't hurt that the main character, Michael Weston, is SO HOT. Wowza, he's a good-looking man!
My mom picked up a book at the library bookstore the other day, and I knew it would be a quick fun read, so I read it. It was the first Charlie Bone book, Midnight for Charlie Bone by Jenny Nimmo. Well, it's the first in a series of 8 books (so far) and I've read the first 6 of them in one week. They're such easy fun reads, and pretty good stories. They're obviously for 10+ ages, but I'm not a book snob. I can read books for younger readers; I quite often do actually. Anyway, they're pretty good books and I've enjoyed reading them. At work, I'm listening to Blue Heaven by C.J. Box. This is not my usual kind of reading. First and foremost, it's a mystery. I don't read many mysteries at all. Not my thing really. But I read some really good reviews on this book, so I decided to give it a try. It's his first stand-alone book, all his others are in a series featuring a character. It's definitely keeping me engaged and I look forward to going to work to finish it. When I really get into listening to a book at work, I have to stop myself from checking out the book and just finishing it when I get home, but I try not to, because listening to a book at work makes the day go so much quicker!
Now onto scrapping. I'll just post a few thing I've done and be done with the huge post. That's what happens when you only post once a month! Sorry!
I'm so bad about not posting the kits I used for these pages. I've actually got to go to work now, so I'll try to edit this post later with the kits I used. If anyone needs to know right now, just e-mail me and I'll be glad to share.
