Bye-Bye May..

Is may taking forever or what?! Seriously. I feel like I've been awaiting the end of the month for several weeks now. Anyone else? It's not that it's been a bad month, it's been fine it's just really long. Here's why I want this month done:

1. SUMMER- GG will be done with teaching (last day is tomorrow) and his very very short week class.
2. Anniversary is the last day of May and so sometime around there we get to celebrate.
3. MONEY. Seriously. I thought we had enough this month and I feel like I have been very careful but somewhere, somehow I spent our alloted budget already. opps. We also only have enough quarters for 2 more loads of laundry. So forgive us if our clothes stink. :) jk.  I will not let that happen!
4. Menu. I don't have anything fanastic lined up food wise for the rest of the month....or even really planned. I think I'll try and see what I can make with what we've got in our cupboards.
5. Vacation we'll be much closer. My neice is getting married and I'm totally stoked for a wedding. I never cared for them before I got married, now I think they are fantastic.

Reasons I don't want May to end:
1. My sister is moving away. :( Add ad tear to that sad face. :'(
2. May is a lovely month. And spring has been pretty good here.
3. well, guess that's it.

June, oh June, will come soon?? :)

Am I odd that I like to paint pictures for my header? Ever since I was a teenager, I'd say middle school aged, I liked to paint pictures on the computer. I guess it must stem out of my kindergarten dream of being an artist (I wanted to be a good at drawing like my brother). Since I'm very limited in what I can do with an actual paper and pencil, this is my fulfillment of that dream.

I'm loving this spring weather we have been having here. It's been perfect for walking. I've been trying to take two walks a day. One with the kids (boo and my nephew) and one at night. The one in the morning is wonderful because the it restrains the kids. Am I terrible for loving car seats, strollers and high chairs for the sake that its just a few minutes that I don't need to worry about where they are? They can only do so much damage in those situations.   And I love, LOVE the evening walks that I take all by myself. I thought there was freedom and peace in my morning walks but taking a walk all by myself is so LIBERATING. It relieves all the anxious tension I often feel. I can actually think! I'm not worried about taking care of anyone else but myself. I can even call my friends who I haven't called in a long time. I can walk faster and swing my arms instead of pushing a stroller. I hope I can keep these evening walks up-even when it gets warmer.

Here a few pictures of Boo...

This isn't the best picture, I took it with my phone. She fell flat on her face as she was running around while I was putting the stroller away. Currently, the scrape is brown from the scabbing (I guess) so I have a brown-noser. :)

Also taken with my phone. She took the kid's meal binoculars with her on the walk. She was so cute looking at bugs with them.

By the time I get halfway through my blog posts, I wonder why I'm even posting or sharing what I am sharing. Oh well I guess. If you care, you care. If you don't, you don't.  I'm kinda sad I've turned into a boring mommy blogger. I suppose I need to find renewed purpose in blogging.

Until next time.
