When Betty was born we went through many songs to find the perfect one that would induce sleep. The one that stuck and the one that we had to learn all the lyrics was I love you a bushel and a peck. That song has been sung at least a million times in the past 3.5 years.

For a while, it fell slightly out of favor as it was the magic song. The magic song that would induce sleep even when Betty didn't want to sleep. Lately, it has been requested again at bedtime. Which means a lovely snuggle and Betty singing with me now.

And that is lovely and magic making itself. Especially when we hit the third verse and Betty corrects me when I sing "it makes my life a mess, a mess of happiness". No, Mommy. It's a mess of dirtiness.

Do I really need to title it?

I've decided that I'm making many changes this year. One of them is to get back to journaling on a daily basis. I miss writing so I'm scheduling myself time to write.

Oh man! The heat wave is here. Kind of wondering if we'll have another one towards the end of July like normal. We were at a birthday party yesterday. A bit too hot to have a party outside in the middle of the day. We all kept saying "I don't want to complain about the heat . . . ". Thankfully we have a portable AC that we gets set up in the bedroom.

OK, the bank sign says its 92 degrees. I think it's a good idea to chill in the bedroom for now.


Reality Check

Reality checks suck. Big time. And they always seem to occur when you least expect them. Today was pulling my phone out of my purse to check the battery only to find I had a text from a friend saying that his partner was in ICU after a fall on Friday and they expected to take him off the ventilator on Monday.

WTF? This is how the universe works? Apparently he had a heart attack and stumbled going down stairs and hit his head on the concrete floor. The doctors think his brain was deprived of oxygen for too long before he was found. The last update was that the brain activity that he would need for recovery was not there.

Needless to say today has been rough. This is the 2nd unexpected death of a friend in the last 6 months. So universe I hear you. I'm trying my best not to take people for granted but I'd really like for you to tell me in nicer terms.

Why is it that when you try to declutter/clean one thing you end up with a completely huge mess somewhere else? I've been systematically trying to reorganize and clean the house. I made it my goal to do one bag of trash and one bag of recycling during nap time. I've been fairly successful. However it seems like as soon as I get one thing done, I find five other things that need to be done. Today was spent moving piles around the basement. I still have piles, albeit a bit more organized and not scattered. Sigh, I just wish I had a week with no Betty to get stuff done.

Hello insomnia. So lovely to see you again. The morning will come way too soon with a little face waking me up.

How is it that with one less person in the bed I still have the same five inches of space? Not necessarily complaining as we tradition to a big girl bed but still. I keep switching sides - cause I can- and the same elbow finds the same spot in my ribs.

Grumble grumble

I really dislike my neighbors right about now. A while back they installed a bunch of security flood lights in the side of their house. Lovely, except at 2am when you are woken out of a dead sleep. I'm thinking about practicing my slingshot usage.
