i did it.
i organized and edited my photos from bend.
one thing checked off my list.
but, you should know that ella was in her dress up princess costume all day.
that includes two trips to walmart (gag),
three to the elementary school,
and two fast food restaurants...yep two.
i didn't wear make up or do my hair...at all.
i had that funny head scarf thing on all day.
i also wore head to toe navy blue.
i have nothing against navy, it's just the head to toe part thats kinda depressing.
i was grouchy today.
so give yourself a pat on the back if you smiled a lot today, you did better than i did.
i told the kids that i was in a bad mood.
i thought it would be a good example.
you know? to model just admitting it and asking for some extra understanding?
jake just asked seven hundred and twenty eight questions about why i was in a bad mood....yep....that didn't really help much.
it may have made it just a tad worse.
but it did make me stop and try to figure out what made me grouchy...i think i may be getting sick...that's what i came up with.
my trip to bend was really so great.
i had some super special time with my sisters.
we even went to a little town CALLED sisters.
it had antique shops and a fabric store.
plus a little market that had fountain diet coke(hard to find around there).
we each got one and then there was this little spinner at the front counter and if you spun the slot that said "free drink" you got it free...
we spun two free drinks and it was as if someone had won the lottery...
val yelled and i wooped.(i was not in a bad mood that day)
the guy behind the counter had the giantess smile and we all agreed it was gonna be one of the best memories form our trip...
those two free 99cent drinks...
sisters also had a cute little ice cream shop with cool floors...
one evening val and i went for a walk by the deschutes river.
it was so perfect. the lighting and the loveliness....
grace and i did some exploring too...
she is a goof ball.
but i finally got to photograph so real clouds...i have a lack of real clouds in california, so i loved finding these...
grace is like reedo, she doesn't shy away from the camera, but she doesn't pose either...or make weird faces (like i do).
i kinda go crazy when they are both just hangin out letting me snap away...
they love me.
we got lots of good time with grace and her boyfriend tom and that was so happy to me.
and then we were home.
can it really be over?
can it really be over?
(i have tried and tried to fix the weird funky "text on the side thing" and i don't know whats happening with blogger right now...it won't let me fix it....that doesn't help my mood.... %$@#$ blogger! didn't you get the memo that i am grouchy!??)
