For some reason, my favorite time to make new posts is just after Midnight. So here it is, 12:07 and I am sitting at my laptop, actually laying sprawled across my couch with my laptop ready to finally make a new post. Sorry, it has been a few days.

Our internet and cable was off for a couple days, which gave me the opportunity to realize how much I don't know how to live with out those things. One of the days, I didnt have a car, my phone or the internet or cable, and by the end of the day I was a nervous wreck! ha. I think I have an addiction to the basic conveniences of today.

Scarlett does too. Her day just does not feel complete without one or two rides in the car, and 2 or 3 episodes of TV shows of her choosing. Usually: Sesame Street, Yo Gabba Gabba, The Backyardigans, or Mrs. Spider's Sunny Patch friends (or pretty much any show that comes on Noggin) Scarlett loves to sing and dance in front of the TV.

So Joe is out of town again(This time he is in Las Vegas, doing a shoot for Isagenix for an upcoming video for a new product line) and after learning how to deal with him being gone (as he was just out of town for 6 days no more than a week ago), I think I am already doing exponentially better emotionally than the last time he went. I am able to stay here at the house, without fear of incident. I even got Scarlett all bathed and jammied before bed, and down at a fairly decent hour this evening. Joe will be gone until Thursday sometime. Until then, it's just me and Scooby.

We spent this afternoon at my Parent's house. We played a couple games of Scrabble. Jan won the first game, and I the second. I won the second game by LOTS because I used all my tiles on a double word with a triple letter score. My word was WALTZER. I was very impressed with myself. I do not think the play would have been possible had it not been for my sweet daughter deciding to give me a break and color at the table. For the majority of the two games, she was in my lap, pulling the tiles on and off of my tray, but she was in pretty good spirits for the bulk of the evening, so I have very little to complain about.

Money is tight until payday on Friday. If any of you feel like giving Scarlett and I a free meal this week, we won't turn you down. Or a free movie, or free daycare is always appreciated as well :) But I of course understand that there are those of you who have lives filled with important things to do, so I won't feel bad if my phone doesn't ring off the hook.

This week while Joe is gone I have set a few goals.
1- to do our laundry
2-to Clean out our Laundry room
3- to go to the GYM at least once, but better yet attempt to go more than once.

So a few weeks back, Joe signed us up for a GYM membership to 24hr Fitness. The problem is they only have daycare in the morning, and I am not a morning person. They also have classes at 9am every morning, but again, I am not a morning person. I have had pipe dreams of shifting Scarlett's sleep schedule to an earlier regimen, and getting up, and having all this energy and being super mom, but I haven't actually done anything to try to make it happen yet. Maybe one day soon though, I hope. Wish me luck, help again, is welcome.

Sending our love.

P.S.- 99.9FM is already playing their christmas music. I have already created a christmas music playlist, but have been waiting until the appropriate season to add it to my blog, do you think I can get away with it yet? Or do I have to wait until after Turkey day? please vote in comment form. THX.

AH!! I am always posting late at night!!! It makes me crazy because I'm so tired the next day but it's the only time I can buckle down and concentrate.

best blogs are created at night, less kids grabbing you by the arm and dragging you down the hall. I like the background, it seems slightly early for Christmas, but all of the malls are putting their stuff up, so why not?
