Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Valentine’s with the special people in your lives!

I’ve had a very busy day so far. I left a teddy bear and card on the hubby’s pillow so he’d find it when he got out of the shower, dropped Snuggle Bug off at school, went to the grocery store, pharmacy (birth control pills, mucho mucho important) and then back home to get ready for a photo shoot. Finished the shoot, picked up Snuggle Bug, got home and made Valentine’s cookies with the Snuggle Bug.

The high point had to be when I came home to find beautiful flowers waiting for me on the doorstep with the sweetest note from the hubby saying:
“Even though I may not always show it, you are the woman I want to be with for the rest of my life. Thank you for loving me.”

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it made my heart melt completely. I’m one lucky lady.

Now I’m off to make a yummy Valentine’s dinner for the family….seafood pasta, yumminess.

Just a day, just an ordinary day....

Where I’m trying not to fall asleep in my classes! Last night I managed to stay up way too late for someone getting up so early. I stayed up trying to get some things done around the house and didn’t finish until midnight. As soon as I crawl into bed Snuggle Bug wakes up screaming. Then, an hour before my alarm was going to go off, she woke up again screaming. Night terrors are a bitch on mother and child. So, I’m going on a little less than 5 hours of sleep. I’m sure it could be worse (ie. No sleep), but I’m pretty tired none the less. Sitting in two painfully boring classes first thing in the morning doesn’t make it any easier.

This semester is proving to be fairly boring. I have seven papers to write over the next few months, a few are due in by the end of the month and one due later is 20 pages long. Yuck. I’ve spent a lot of time since this semester started asking me why the hell I’m doing this to myself but I know it’s for the best.

To make matters worse the hubby has been on yet another trip and Snuggle Bug is entering the realm of terrible 3’s. She is yelling “no” constantly, pushing limits and just generally being a little crabby butt. When I went to pick her up from daycare yesterday she was upset because she wanted to keep playing, so I let her play just a little longer. When I finally told her it was time to go she melted down, screaming at the top of her lungs, kicked and flailing around. When I finally got a hold of her to put her jacket on she hit me and I heard her teacher gasp behind me. I was absolutely humiliated. After that scene I couldn’t look anyone in the eye as we left the classroom. I’m trying my best to control her and teach her what is right and wrong but this is just getting ridiculous….ridonkulous even.

So there you have it, a brief life update. Nothing special, nothing cool….just an ordinary few days in my life.
