I love this video! Lex and I watch lots of little clips like this together. She was so darn cute. I can't believe how much she's grown and changed since June. She's getting so old. How did this happen to my little girl???

I am not depressed

Just thought I'd put that out there for anyone who might be confused. My life is a little tough right now with all the stuff going on with jobs, kids, schooling, and owning a new home. There are bad days. I'm pretty sure everyone has bad days.

I'd also like to mention that I am a slob. I was raised in a way that allowed me to abstain from much of picking up after myself and cleaning in general. (My parents are not happy about this, I just happened to be a stubborn and defiant child.) This revelation may seem unnecessary but read on for its relevance.

I am working on my straightening up abilities. I guess you could say I'm in recovery from my slobbyness. It's a process. It is unfortunate that I have to publicly admit to such an unsightly flaw but I've recently been notified that my messy house is a clear indication of my apparent depression and lack of ability to manage my life and take care of my children. Therefore I should read about Brook Shields. The concern is duly noted. Anyone that still has 'concerns' about my well being should feel free to direct those concerns to me. It will save time, frustration and avoid misconceptions.

I am not fond of back talking and have enough of it going on at work with a certain person I will not mention here. Feel free to call and get the dish on that one.

C'est La Vie

Life is hard. My life is hard. Hard Hard Hard. I complain a lot. A lot. I complain because the way I complain usually makes people laugh. If I can make people laugh about it then I can usually laugh about it. Then it feels more like a sitcom than a stuggle. I really don't have that much to complain about. We bought a house (we're trying to figure out if we can still afford our decision, but those are just details right?). I have food, and clothes and a job. I even have a few friends up here (I don't see them outside of work but again, details. Right?). It's not a huge deal, I just don't feel like laughing today. I'm tired. So tired my eyelashes hurt.
Yesterday was a bad day. A really, really bad day. If I told you how bad it was you would laugh. I told a few people and they laughed, so I laughed. I can be pretty funny sometimes. Anyway, wish me luck tomorrow. I'm going to bed. Maybe I'll luck out and wake up at work all dressed and ready to go. It's nice to be at work and feel like a real person for a while.

Here's a few pics to end on a happy note. :0)

Matching MoMo jammies. Thank you, Nana!
