Yeah not so much huh. I'm always busy!! There's always something to be done,or someone's children to be watched. I watch kids for a few different families. No usually all in the same week though. This week though. EVERY DAY. Tomorrow MArk and I are going to go get my mom to hang until Saturday. Seriously though, I need some time to myself or I am going to freak! NOthing against Mark or Adrianna or any of the many people that come over. I just haven't had much time to myself lately. I'm actually getting tired of hearing my own name! Because I hear it called... so often. The power was out for a day and a half. Some how I ended up babysitting for two people that day. I don't think I will be babysitting Adrianna's one litle friend anymore. She has issues. Serious issues. She doesn't do as she is told. She whines and complains. I really can't babysit a child that I cant control so no more. It just makes me want to pull my hair out and punt said child so that's not healthy. So no more now. They don't pay me anyway so It's not like I'm losing out on anything. Seriously though do you know how hard it is to babysit with no power? It was soooooo hot. "I want to watch tv" Well sorry kid that's too bad I don't have power. If you wanted to watch tv maybe I should have watched you at your house,where you have power." I have to come to realize that I do not indeed like all children,nope not at all. I only like the well behaved children. I have actually banned certain kids from coming into our house because they don't behave. In other news we have picked out Adrianna's cello and are about to order it. I have been watching her little friend Kyle a bit lately. He moved away when they were in kindergarten to the netherlands I think, which is where his mom is from. Now they live in France. They get along pretty well for the most part, they have little spats once in a while but not bad enough that I have to intervene. I think I actually heard Adrianna trying to explain what personal space is the other day! LOL I find this hilarious because maybe a month ago I had to explain personal space to her! I love her but I can NOT be hung on. I have always been this way I don't really like to be touched very much. I mean I'm ok with a hug but just people putting there hands on me or rubbing on me it really irritates me. Thank you very much stupid teenage boys of my past, you gave me a complex. It's really not that interesting of a story I just happened to have some boys middle school through high school that were REALLY persistent and wouldn't leave me alone. I was a big prude and didn't have a bf until I was 16 so I wanted nothing to do with it! I went to the water park the other day and was there for 6 hours. Needles to say I had sunburn. I had it on my face,arms, and boobs. Now I have... not sure I would call it a tan but it's as close as I get to having a tan. I have lots more freckles woo hoo! I needed more of those! My skin kind of gets brownish with a red tinge to it. I can never have nice bronzed skin, It's not in my dna to have it. I instead look kind of rosey. |
LOL you can see the line around my neck from my swim suit. Not the clearest pic but it does show the sunburn a bit.
Adrianna had a lot of fun when her Grand parents were here from Minnesota Memorial day weekend. They will back in August. I saw my dad that weekend to, he was up her to get some more of his stuff to bring down to Florida with him. Oddly he bought my aunt Florence's old place in the old folks park that my grandma lives in during the winter. Adrianna has been going nuts for the bubbles and sidewalk chalk lately.
She has been swimming quite a bit this summer. She reminds me so much of myself as a child it's almost scary. It was very hard to get me out of the water when it was around. My dad used to call me his little water bug. He used to also call me Sarah Jane.... No my middle name is not Jane its Elaine. When I was really little he used to call me possum pie. Also not sure why.
Summer has been going by fast. We planned on going camping last weekend. IT didn't work out with the power outage. SO I set the tent up in the backyard. I was pretty determined that we were going to sleep in a tent so we did. In like two weeks we have the family camping trip. Fun fun fun! I so Want to Go see Rasputina but they are playing this music festival and I don't reckonize any other band on the roster so I think I will have to sit this one out. :( When I went to see a place to bury strangers. Funny story. Adrianna asks what are you doing mama? I said I'm getting ready to go see A Place To Bury Strangers." She gets this worried look on her face and asks " Mama, why do you need a place to bury strangers?" I started cracking up. I said no honey its a band, i'm going to a concert. She says OOH! can I come? I told her I was sorry but she had to sit this one out. They have the rep for being one of the loudest bands in New York. I wore plugs, it was a good idea! Anyhow I go to this show and the first two bands just completely sucked. I mean the one band actually made me angry. They were using all sorts of different instruments one of which was a violin but she was completely playing it wrong and it just sounded scratchy and horrible. I had a hanibal lector moment. I seriously wanted to hurt her. A place to bury strangers was great,openers sucked. Which is why I cant see myself paying $37.50 to go see a bunch of bands that I dont know that could completely blow and have to wait forever to see Rasputina. The Birthday Massacre was here the other day. Adrianna really wanted to go to the show really badly, They are her favorite band. I had money too but Mark said no it was on too short of notice. Hey man it's not my fault the email I ended up getting was the day before the show! Suckage but next time they come to town I have to take her. I mean, they're her favorite band right? She loves Chibi, she was a little obsessed with her in kindergarten. Anyhow I need to go see what kind of mischeif these kids are into.... it's way to quiet,it's never a good sign.
