My "Job" is Awesome

Urza (whom I am thinking of renaming) has always argued with me that my job of taking care of S is not a "job" ... because apparently if you love what you do then you are not working.

Now, I love that little guy so very much, but sometimes taking care of a kid IS WORK!

(Ir)Regardless(haha) of if you love them or not.
Anyone who says taking care of kids isn't work,... well they haven't actually taken care of kids before.

So yesterday I stayed with S and we had an amazing time eating apples & bunny crackers, dancing to music, building with blocks, playing with trains, and drawing.

I asked S to draw me a particular picture and this is what he drew me:

Now that drawing is of a particular animal and I want to give you a chance to guess what it is before I tell you.
What do you think it is??

It is ....
A horse :)

All that to say that my "job" is awesome.
Purely and fantastically awesome.

Project 52 - Week 4

So yeah this wasn't posted last Sunday and I'm back-dating it. So sue me. Seriously. Five years from now I'll need the practice.

This last week - ..... we got a puppy!!
Isn't she freaking adorable?!
Probably the cutest I've ever seen. (besides Kristy)

Name suggestions??

UPDATE (11-03-09) after about 1 1/2 weeks she has a name ... Aria :)

Project 52 - Week 2

Setting: Thursday afternoon - playing with S after his nap

We were playing and coloring. I started to draw shapes and had S name them for me (he's good at it!)

So I drew a rectangle...

Me: What is that S?

S: reckangle

Me: Good Job!!.... can you draw a rectangle?

S drew this (right under my square and rectangle)

Me: Wow S! Good job... you are so smart!

S: ..... I know!


I have a feeling that a lot of Project 52 will be about S.

Cut it out!

work again today...
it was interesting - it always is at the library.
but today was extra weird. one of my co-workers checked in some books out of the book drop and they were CUT UP!! what is up with that?!?!

and it wasn't simply a page that was cut --- 15 pages or more were missing in every book - about 5 books!
It was crazy.

Who does that? Who defaces public property? WHO WOULD RUIN BOOKS?!? BOOKS?!?!

Parlez-vous français?

I've loved the French language for a long time. I guess I should have taken it as my foreign language in school, but I didn't ... and now I have a hankering to learn it.
I'd love to travel to France especially Bordeaux, Normandy, Brittany (the coastline!), and of course Paris :)
Oh! Honeymoon?!

So here's what I'm wondering ... Does Rosetta Stone actually work? Or would that just be a large waste of money?
I really want to learn the language and unfortunately I don't have the time left at school to do a few semesters...

so how am I going to go about learning French?!?

Want. Need. MUST HAVE. Tuesdays

I skipped last week because I'm starting feel a little materialistic and it bothers me.
I'm not a person that focuses on things and I don't want to be viewed as such.

So Want. Need. MUST HAVE. Tuesdays will be postponed for a bit ... maybe next week you will get another view into the type of things I like.

So it looks like these Weekend Wrapups are going to be a bit boring, but I'll keep with it.

This weekend: Work, work, work. It sucks.
Friday night: work
Saturday all day: work
Saturday night: babysit
Sunday: too sick to go to work and homeWORK all day

Baron was down again...

We hung out...

University lost :( ...

This weekend was uneventful and kind of sucked.

Project 52 - Week 1

I have a friend on facebook that is posting a picture from her life every day for a year - it is her Project 365 - she got it from another friend.
I'd love to do that, but unfortunately I don't have the time to post a picture every single day.

So here's what I am going to do instead:
Project 52!! One picture a week. It will be posted on Sundays and be about the previous week.

Here's Week 1!

S recently had a birthday and he got an awesome train set from his Grandmama and Pops. So when I watched him last Thursday he was sleeping when I got there and I decided to put homework on hold.
I designed this track and put the little people out. I had a lot of fun playing with the train ... (::embarrassed face::)
I never had a train set as a child ... so I had to play with his.
Once S got up we played with it together and had a blast!!
Thank you to Grandmama and Pops for the awesome present for S ;)
