Lola is sick. Again. We’re watching Harry Potter. Again. We’re eating leftovers. Again. I hate leftovers.
So far today
I have taken my mum to the airport. taken Lola to school and slept until 11. Then since Lola came home two hours ago, we have blown bubbles, had a picnic and a water balloon fight, watered flowers and fed our unofficial pet rabbit that hides in our yard some carrots. Now she is down for a nap and I am ready to kick back and finish watching The Hobbit. It’s only 2:30 and I think today...

It’s May 16th y’all
Crying into cupcake batter
Because Lola will be 3 on Saturday. I’m going to have to make a second batch because these were supposed to go to her school tomorrow. But I’ve soaked them with tears of despair. Babies growing up to fast causes such things.

I laughed til I cried.
Oh how I miss Florida already
The mini trip to Florida went by way too fast. A few highlights before an actual post: It rained 4 of the 5 days we were there. We narrowly missed being hit by a tornado. Lola had a birthday party and was so so happy. We saw friends we hadn’t seen in years. We walked my favorite little city, St. Augustine. We had a night out without the babe with two other couples and...
Of course it would rain the entire time we're...
Because we planned to be at the beach, and give Lola a birthday party outside at a park. Damn you Florida. Damn. You.
That time your kid choked on a penny
That she wasn’t supposed to have and all your attempts at a Heimlich maneuver didn’t work. So you had to shove your fingers down her throat only to not be able to get it out. So the kid ends up swallowing it. Yeah. That’s my Tuesday.
How many times
Does a child have to watch the same two movies before it is considered an addiction? Frankenweenie and ParaNorman are the only movies Lola wants to watch. I think she might be finally breaking away from Toy Story. Praise Jesus.
Planning Lola's bday has me wanting to pull out my...
Her party is 3 weeks away and I have nothing done. Nothing. Also a location hasn’t been picked because Florida weather is unpredictable and always really hot and having an outside party has me on edge. Plus, stupid places like the zoo or some play house want to charge $300-400 bucks and I’m sorry but that is ridiculous. So I’m leaning to a park party because I don’t...
I'm stuck at a laundry mat
And I’m bored out of my mind. Ask me things?! Yes. I’m that bored I’m asking you to ask me stupid shit.
Having a really bad day
So I’m starring at pictures of Norman Reedus. He makes life better.
Wash the cars
Only to get tree skeet all over them.
Lola will be three in a little over a month
how is this happening already? The other day she said something about her birthday and I realized it was really close and I haven’t planned anything. At all. Which is really weird because I am a planner. Like ocd type planner. So I asked her what kind of party she wanted and she said a Frankenweenie party. Which is awesome. My kid is obsessed with all things ghost and scary. Every...
Lola did not want to go to school today
She had a major meltdown when I dropped her off. Screaming, crying, begging me not to leave, clinging on me. Eventually I just had to pull her off and let the teacher grab her. I was literally hugging,kissing, and reassuring her for like 15 min before I just left and let her calm down on her own. (Hopefully) The worst part was the teachers just giving me shitty fucking looks because this was...
Lola had an amazing time at school. After I picked her up we got a smoothie and now she is playing with a bunch of little girls at a play area. Everyday she amazes me with her personality and watching her grow into a vibrant, silly, smart little girl. I’m not pleased she is growing so fat but I guess I’ll just have to accept it eventually. Putting her into Montessori is the...
Lola started her first day at Montessori school

I tell Lola to pick out a movie to watch before...
And she brings me back “the juice movie.” Aka Beetlejuice. Which she has never seen before. But she tells me she thinks it looks cool because “that guy doesn’t have his head.” My kid wins at life.
I don't know what I did in a past life
But the fucking universe hates me. Uggghhsdiskhijgisnsg I will be eating my weight in cupcakes.
Lola in a school uniform
Excuse me while I break down and sob because my baby isn’t a baby anymore. Waaaahhhhhh.
Today I am
Signing Lola up for Montessori school. Finally buying her Easter Basket goodies. Finding something to wear to Mass. Taking Lola to the park because it s supposed to be warm and I pinky promised. Not doing any cleaning that I really should be doing. Hitting up the post office to mail in the stupid state taxes. Trying not to cry over the fact that everything makes me emotional as...
Things I Say While Driving
Me: What the fuck are you doing. What. The fuck. Are you doing.
Me: NICE BLINKER ASSHOLE.
Me: Why the FUCK are we not even going the speed limit. Why.
Me: I AM GOING TEN MILES PER HOUR OVER THE SPEED LIMIT WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT
Me: Shit is that a cop? No.
Me: Shit THAT is a cop.
Me: /dinosaur screams/
Ice cream cake is the only good thing to happen to...
And I’m okay with that.
Yay everyone has gone home!
After two straight weeks of family visits, we are company freeeeee. I can lay in my underwear eating junk food and watching movies again! Woohoo! I’m only allowing myself one day of lazy (today) and then I have tons to do. Work to look for, an Easter basket to get together for Lola, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, exercising, signing Lola into the Montessori school at the end of...
Things I love
Lola (duh.) The mister (duh.) Cow tails. (The candy, duh.) Candles. A crisp Coke in a bottle. Nightmare on Elm Street movies. Taxidermy. Bird cages. Fresh flowers and dead flowers. Catholic statues, rosaries, crucifixes etc. Cute elderly couples. Pop Surrealism. Harry Potter. Comfy pants. Tiramisu. Laundry fresh from the dryer. Vincent Price. Red lipstick. Reese cups and vanilla...
My in-laws are visiting
And most of the night has revolved around fart jokes. Oh and that really awkward joke made by my husband about me blowing him. Real classy here. Reeaaalll classy.
I've turned into a cat lady
I never had a cat. Always always dogs and now that Frankie has joined our family, I’ve totally converted. She is the sweetest, playful, loving cat I have ever met. Plus she lets Lola do whatever she wants and not get all pissy. Downfall, Frankie snores as loud as my husband.

So for like the first time in YEARS I decided to take a bath instead of a shower. And then a pipe exploded and our downstairs was flooded. That’s what I get for swimming in my own filth and trying to mask it as a “luxurious bubble filled mini spa night”
All of the feels
My best friend is flying home and I may or may not be crying like a baby in the car.
Chandrea day 1.5
Yesterday and the night before I have laughed. I have laughed so much that. My guts hurt. I have laughed so much my face hurts and has a permanent grin. For the first day we didn’t go out and go wild, we simply talked and watched our kids play and laughed. We just laughed the way only best friends can. The kind of laugh that makes you boil over until you cry. We watched the Pope be...
My best friend is here
All is right with the world.
