Peaceful Beach Day Interrupted

Kinda ironic that I love the beach and HATE the sand (Jerry makes fun of me).

Imagine this, two little girls that get sandy from head to toe and then want me to hold them and want to climb all over me!! Get out of town!!

Ok, this is when the LOVE wins over the sand.
(Oh, and sometimes we choose going to a pool--it is a much cleaner activity)

Short and Sweet

Good things are happening!!

And that is all I have to say about that.

Remote Control Update

We have turned the house upside down, inside out, looked under, above, and through...and our little piece of hand-held technology has yet to be found.

We are keeping an optimistic outlook on the situation.

And the little one is saying mum (pretty literally) and hasn't given us any clues (we are for certain this was her work).

Thanks, Ambria.

Added Note: I FOUND IT!! The day after I wrote this post (Wednesday) I continued my search and found the remote behind the tv in the midst of all the cords and wires. Hooray.

A Missing Report

Our DVD remote control has been missing for four days.

All search efforts have come up empty (and we are stumped).

The Little Joys

It is tradition in our family that whenever we leave the house, Mariah runs to our big picture window to wave and blow as many kisses as she can before Jerry or I drive away (Ambria goes to the window now as well, but she is a few inches shy of being able to see out, so she just pretends).

However, last night was a little different. As I backed out of the driveway, I stopped to wave and I saw two little faces in the window, instead of just one. Mariah, being the wonderful big sister that she is (most of the time), picked up Ambria to see out the window. This means that Mariah had to use all of her might to lift Ambria and Mariah had to fore go waving and blowing kisses because she had her hands full--how thoughtful.

It just melted my heart. I love you, girls!!

?My Answer?

So, a lot of people these days have been asking me how I am doing. Well, it depends on if it is a greeting or a question, and if it is a question, it is a loaded question, so you will get a loaded answer...

I am
pissed off
and any other emotion that I missed.

And, at any moment of any day, I can experience one or more of these emotions (huge props to Jerry for putting up with me).

Oh, and thanks for asking.
