Battle of the Dora Car...

The munchkins decided to pull out their only mode of automatic transportation on the property today...the Dora Car. Mind you this car is a 1 seater, and does not accomodate the 3 munchkins well at all. The attempt usually ends up something like this...

M2: "Okay...I'll just walk behind.. You two can have all the fun of driving."M2: "This is not cool...I should be able to ride also."

M2: "WWHHHEEEEEE... this is fun...Why didn't we think of this before guys?"
M3: "Left me off ...You girls are crowding me"
M3: "WWAAAHHHHH...wait...I've decided I want back on now!"

M1: "Haha...Girl Power!! "
M2: "No boys allowed...this is much better."

M3: "NO!!!! This is not fair. MMMOOOOOMMM!!!"

M1: "Okay...let's try this again. I'll sit on the hood and relax..Munchkin 2 take it away."

M2 & M3: "Well..this is a little better...At least none of us have to walk."

I want to climb into this boat and drift away for just a few moments.
I want to grow a garden. Lots and lots of veggies - springing forth with bursts of color

I want to finish reading (at a minimum) one of the four books I've begun in the past few weeks.

I want to overhaul my closet.

I want to learn to play the fiddle.

I want to sing like Eva Cassidy.

I want to walk into Neiman's and buy anything I like.

Ok..that's enough for now.

Enjoy your daydreams.

Oh. I. am. such. a. terrible. blogger.

Honestly, I've saved several blog drafts in the past few weeks, to no avail at fininshing at least one of them. O well. Here is a brand new one today. I wonder if it will actually get published. We shall see. My goal today. Push the Publish Post button at the bottom of the page...you know...the big Orange button?

(((Phone is ringing...hold on)))

Okay, I'm back.

So. Munchkin 1 is set to start Kindergarten this coming fall. Baby Munchkin 3 is turning 2 in 14 days, and I'm slowly inching my way out of my twenties. I know this feeling. The feeling of leaving one chapter of my life, and moving into a brand new chapter. I've been here before, and dealing with the changes always seem impossible at first.

(((responding to a text message now)))

hello again.

I slowly get adapted again to where I am in life, then poof I'm thrown into a new uncomfortable place. What an adventure...this life!

(((not another phone call!!!!)))

I gotta go. I'm reaching for the button now.

Pick Yourself Up...

"Nothing's impossible I have found,
For when my chin is on the ground,
I pick myself up,
Dust myself off,
Start All over again.

Don't lose your confidence if you slip,
Be grateful for a pleasant trip,
And pick yourself up,
Dust yourself off,
Start all over again.

Work like a soul inspired,
Till the battle of the day is won.
You may be sick and tired,
But you'll be a man, my son!

Will you remember the famous men,
Who had to fall to rise again?
So take a deep breath,
Pick yourself up,
Dust yourself off,
Start all over again."
