random weekend thoughs


1. It is neat reconnecting with people I haven't seen since the 90's... the internet is a wonderful thing

2. I can't believe the Colby is almost 1!

3. I appreciate all the support I've received via my blog in regards to Blake's speech. People who know me well know that I understand that none of this is my fault, but I'm a perfectionist, I'm a teacher, I'm a mother, I'm Lori... I always feel like I should have been doing more and should be doing more now. I want it fixed, but I'm also a realist who knows it is slow process and he is making progress and he WILL get there!

4. Rain... Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday... need I say more?? (offically 7.57 inches not including today!)

5. Blake had a blast playing in the puddles this week... if you didn't see the video of it yesterday check it out!

6. Ghirardelli Ultimate Fudge Brownie... yeah if you have never tried them you soooo need to go buy a box right NOW!

7. In the month of May so far Richard has had TWO days off... yeah that's it! One to celebrate my birthday and then Mother's day... and he will be working for the next two weekends too... I think. It's hard, but at least he has a job... and job security!

8. I went to the grocery store by myself today... when did that become a treat?

9. Richard put a computer on the floor in the playroom for the boys... oh boy is Blake psyched about this

10. A food processor is a wonderful toy! Plus now I don't have to splurge to buy shreds or shredded cheese or.... now I just need to find some more cool things to do with it (that was my b-day present from Richard). Between that and the crock pot, meal prep is easy!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend and gets to enjoy the long weekend (refer to #7 if you want to know how we are spending ours... yeah at home!)


  1. haha...yeah it's funny how going grocery shopping alone all of a sudden can become an outing!

  2. Man, we need a little rain in these parts...my water bill is going to be insane for all the sprinkling our lawn is getting....

    Grocery store alone is a TREAT!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Wow that's a lot of rain. At least you found one good thing to come out of it. Puddles!

  4. I LOVE my grocery outings by myself. Ryan joined me yesterday and we had a great time together. I am ready for the rain to end too. OVER IT!!

  5. Wow..what's up with all the rain and yes the video of Blake was absolutely ADORABLE!

    I agree funny how grocery store has become a break. My husband thinks when I do my weekly shopping that it's a break from everything..yeah right! :)

  6. Yes going to the grocery store alone - it's like feeling like you left the house without your clothes on!!! :)

    I thought about you all with all that rain....

  7. Still raining today too, huh. I thought about you when they said they were diverting the shuttle here.

  8. Yikes, we've had a lot of rain too lately, but not that much! And I LOVE grocery shopping alone although I always spend so much more when I am not rushing to get out because Wyatt is acting up, lol. Sorry Richard has been working so much, thats gotta be hard. But job security is good...trust me, lol. Love the new layout. I gotta figure out how you customize everything though....makes my head hurt everytime I try to do it.

  9. Yikes! That is a lot of rain! I hope you at least have gotten some fun puddle pictures *grin*!

    I know what you mean about going to the grocery store alone! It is a treat!

    Have a great rest of your weekend!
