bit of dilemma

Friday June 22, 2007

I am in a bit of dilemma…with my blog. I can’t figure out if I want to post everyday or not post at all. I find myself exhausted at the end of the day and all I want to do is be outside relaxing in the backyard. But the dilemma that I face is that I love sharing my stories, insights, humor, good looks – I mean, life — with you.

Here is a quick update – while I debate with myself what to do with my blog…

The squirrel got out. After much convincing and pushing our comfortable neighbor boundaries they finally let the squirrel escape.

My brother and Cassie got married last Friday! The weekend was amazing and the party was a blast. They left on their honeymoon on Sunday.

Jake just climbed Mt. Hood and he is climbing Mt. Rainier today and tomorrow. He has been gone all week and I miss him.

I am currently obsessed with my yard, specifically perennials and my veggies. I don’t know what I am doing but I don’t care. A rabbit is eating some on my plants and I want to kill it. Free the squirrel but kill the rabbits!!!

This weekend is the biggest weekend I have all year at work. Which means, that even though today it is Friday for you, it is Wednesday for me, and there will be no Saturday or Sunday for me.

what the

As I am walking down the hall at work, just moments ago, I hear flip flop flip flop.

And I think to myself, What the hell is that?

Then I look down and notice I am wearing flip flops. At work. Right now.

I forgot to change my shoes back when I went home for lunch. Whoops.

what do i do?

Sunday June 10, 2007

I don’t know what to do. Every compassionate and sensitive cell in my body is aching. I want to climb up on a ladder and rescue it in the night.

My neighbors trapped a squirrel in their roof and I can hear its desperate scrapping trying to get out and worst of all I can see its little arms grasping the shingles from inside trying to escape. It is relentless. It woke me up at 6 am this morning.

This squirrel needs my help. Do I ask my neighbors to free it? I know they don’t like it and that is why they patched this hole in the roof (where it is trapped) in the first place. I don’t think they intentionally trapped it in their roof because that would be weird. They are not weird people except when they tell me that I shouldn’t paint my dining room. What do I do????

I got a 10% raise today! I really really did!

(It was an overall campus thing but still, it feels awesome!)

Yippi!

over the fence

Tuesday June 5, 2007

Let’s face it – life is full of blog posts.

The moment we show our face or our feet out our back door, she is there ready with her quickfire questions.

Anne/Jake – What are you doing?
Anne/Jake – What will you be doing after what you are doing?
Anne/Jake – Do you want to see my ________(insert anything you can think of here)?
Anne/Jake – Do you want to see my________after you have seen my_____________?
Anne/Jake – Look at my bike, my streamers, my horn, my sneakers, my caterpillars!

But today she saved the best for last. As we are inching our way through our backdoor, she screams over the fence in desperation….

Anne – WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PRINCESS? MINE IS ARIEL.
