nock, nock...

Do any of you even read this anymore...?
I'm nannying again, so there are inevitable stories that come up. I think the good ones still need to be shared (Comment if you agee, really, go, do it).
Like what happened today.

There are a lot of things filming in Atlanta right now. We have some tax law movie makers like and well, Atlanta is sweet, southan and just plan wonderful ya'll!
I don't go more than 2 days without seeing filming crews in a new spot. It's kind of weird actually.
{Ok, I'm also annoyed that I've yet to see a famous person - Tom Hanks is running around, Jennifer Garner and Betty White were here. 2 Words: Ryan Reynolds. I have to run into someone soon. Have to.}

Anyway, today I was driving with child A to go pick up child B. Child A is 5 years old. We passed the hurt building downtown and I pointed out the trucks and trailers. I thought, hey a 5 year old would think a movie being made is cool. He looks up and says...

"Well, I hope it's not American Pie!"

American Pie. You weren't even thought of when that movie was made.
How do you know anything about that movie.

I assured him it was not American Pie and then dropped the subject.
I mean...what do you say after that...?

a few thoughts...

I'm on the tail end of a 7 day sprint at life. It's been thrilling but I am ready for a break.

My house is a disaster. My laundry might come to life soon. If my bathroom isn't cleaned this weekend bad things will happen. It's that bad. My vacuum would run itself if it could.

I haven't even began to study for the GACE, which is in less than a month. This is the first time I've looked at an actual computer and not my phone in days.

I had a baking disaster last night. I bake a lot. Disasters shouldn't happen.

I just have about 8 million lose ends to tie up. Everything is a-ok on this end, but I cannot seem to pull my life together. Ya know what I mean?
How do we do that to ourselves? I don't understand.

However, despite the madness, I have had a string of beautiful souls come into my life to send encouragement. Tulips, emails from across the state and ocean, voice mails, and the borrowing of a hand mixer when I needed it most.
It's the little things.

I apologize to my to do list for ignoring it {really, I'm sorry}. I do not regret the sweet time spent with those I love. I apologize to all of those email and phone calls I have yet to return. Tomorrow, is your day friends. Tomorrow.
Until then,


P.S. Please GO outside and enjoy this wonderful weather. PTL we've made it through winter!

sweet sweet music

let's be honest...I haven't really been nanny blogging lately anyway.

Read this
and follow said directions.

"With you I can be myself
With you I don't have to be somebody else
It's like putting on my favorite pair of shoes
I like to be with me, when I'm with you."
