What You've Missed

Writer's Block, still goin' strong!

Some of the things I could have posted about should I have found the right words:

-Saturday we took Krya to a water park. She was much braver then I was climbing to the tippy top of one of the rides all while bouncing around like a wild woman. 70 feet off the ground should really have more cover then an open stairwell with a railing 4 feet high facing the great wide open air. Even though I am super duper petrified of heights I braved two of these kinds of stairwells because 1) my kid has no fears and 2) these were the most adult kind of rides Jer would be able to shoot himself down on this particular visit to the water park. By the time we were waiting for our raft at the tippy top of the second (even taller then the first) tower I had to stoop down because I was 97% sure I was going to vomit from a combination of fear of heights and the fact that some people just don't know how to stand perfectly still so the tower will quit rocking back and forth. Now I want my Mother/Wife of the Year award!

-How many times should one tell their child she must wear panties to church before threatening to leave her at home with the dogs and then pretend to do so? Don't look at me like that, I only took the dogs out to do their business before we left. Can't leave your child at home with the dogs if you leash them up and take them with you. It's not my fault if a 2 year old doesn't comprehend that.

- Jeremy has a cold. Either he's on his death bed or the world is ending, I'm not certain exactly which one it is, yet.

- Kyra has started day 2 of eating strait watermelon. There's nothing wrong with that, is there? I mean, she, herself, has consumed half of a good sized watermelon all on her own. Impressive, no?


  1. Hope J feels better soon! Sounds like you all had lots of fun..Any pictures of your adventures?!

  2. It's funny that you say you have to search for the right words, b/c even in your "Short-supply" style, you are more articulate and funny than most writers without trying. I know I am not alone when I say, write anyway you want...we love to read it. Oh, and when you're published one day, don't forget to thank me for keeping you motivated (J/K). Talk to you soon.

  3. I'm laughing over the whole flu/deathbed thing. Mine behaves the same way... god forbid if I need to sleep away a few hours if I'm sick like that, can he take a day off work to watch Kira? NOOOOOOOOOOOO OF COURSE NOT!!!

    You're so lucky your Kyra can eat watermelon... for some strange reason mine can't eat very much of ANY fruit as it makes her welt up. I was really hoping it would have passed by now, but that's not the case. :( Sucks really badly too because she *loves* fruit.
