Stop and smell the asphalt.

I "got ready" like 5 separate times this week and this is the only lame picture i have to show for it!?

My blog muscles are a bit flabby these days (come to think of it...most of my muscles are a bit flabby these days) Take a week off and all of the sudden its like i'm trying to translate my thoughts into spanish (My name is Carolyn. I am a mother that likes the jokes. Do you know where the library is?) We have had a lot of family around and it just didn't seem right to choose the cold embrace of my computer screen over those capable of two way conversation and...heartbeats. 

I have been up to my scrappy old self. Cutting down dead plants with inappropriate garage tools and getting in arguments with vietnamese men at the nail salon by day, then wearing red lipstick and watching 3D tweenie movies by night (this description explains a random weekend of mine...or that of an underage stripper, your choice.) 

Really though this weekend was a lot of fun. So even though i cooked for like 50+ mouths and I washed every dish in my house at least 5 times, it did rain. IT RAINED! And when you live in Arizona, you get to stop whatever you're used to doing and watch it, for as long as you want. It's like Disneyland when it rains here. Everyone is happy and nice, birds chirp and also Churros have no calories. It's magical.

team Boo 's you

1. disneyland churros are the best.

2. i love your random weekend events.

3. you are probably my most favorite person that i've never met.

4. i love that book "animals should definitely not wear clothing" that is on your side bar. so cute!

PS good choice on choosing real convos and heartbeats over blogging. we can all take a cue and follow your lead :).

Aw, I hate it the one day I "get ready" and no one takes a photo. My children will grow up and think I do nothing but laundry all day :)

PS Also feel lucky that at least your one picture of you "all ready" is at least postable. The pics Jason took of me and Lucy on my last "all ready" day were awful. I am blinking or look stoned in all of them. ALL of them. I am not sure how that happens.

p.s. someone should take more pictures of you.
