I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific. – Lily Tomlin

Friday Flip Offs – July 30th Edition

It’s that time again.  Time for some virtual detox!  Thanks to Gigi from Kludgy Mom.

*I saw your number on the caller ID the other day.  TWO DAYS after her birthday.  I begged the husband to call you back for an hour.  He didn’t.  She wasn’t here anyway.

*Hey old PVA man, did you have to come take photos of the house when the yard looks like it hasn’t been mowed in 2 weeks?  It looks that way because it actually hasn’t been mowed in 2 weeks, but that’s beside the point.  You haven’t photographed the house in 6 years anyway.

*To acquaintances, you’ve proved that to be a farce.  Honestly, I thank you.

*To the patience that I do not have….

*To the humidity that will not go away!

*To the Summer that didn’t last long enough…

FLIP OFF!
And enjoy your weekend!

Raw(e) – 2(6) – Quackers

While we were at the zoo on Sunday, we found relief from the tropical heat wave in the penguin building.  The penguins weren’t moving around too much, but this solitary duck was swimming from one end of the enclosure to the other.  I thought I’d try to get a shot of both it’s top (above water) and bottom (under water).  Instead I got this crazy looking shot of what looks like a duck split in two!

[Image]I’m adding this to the Raw(e) challenge over at Sailor & Company.  This week she’s making it super easy, just look in the 2nd folder of photos, find the 6th image and then post a blog entry.  But remember that your photos have to be SOOC (straight out of camera) and unedited.  You have until 5PM Friday.

The next two themes will be LAMPS and VINTAGE.

The Long Road

I’m in a bit of a funk.

With the exception of last week, things for me haven’t been all shiny and happy.  Because of this I’m having some writer’s block or blogger’s block.  It’s not like I’m a some great writer or blogger or anything, but I’ve just run out of things to blog about.

There isn’t a lack of things to say ’cause there is SO MUCH that I would like to say, but I just don’t think this blog is the place for all that mess.

Do you ever have times when you feel that it is you against just about everything else in the whole stinkin’ world? That’s where I’m at right now.

The kids go back to school in just a little over a week.  They are both excited about heading back which is strange.  I want them to NOT want to go back.  I guess they are tired of being stuck at home.  I’m excited about the start of the school year to a point.  My oldest will be in his last year of “elementary” school.  I’m not prepared to be a parent of a middle schooler!  Where has the time gone?  It seems like just yesterday he was starting kindergarten!

If I’m absent for a few days, it’s not you… it’s me.  We aren’t breaking up or anything… I just need to get out and find some stuff to blog about!!

Is this not the cutest thing?

I came across this cute website this morning through Tricycle magazine’s blog. Adele imagines what her little bundle is dreaming about and creates that environment for a photo op! Such a cute idea and what imagination! Be sure to visit her blog!
