If Only


I finally chopped my hair! You won't believe it til you see it! MC and I have almost matching haircuts. According to Matt, we are Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. Assuming I'm the latter. Hers may actually be longer than mine! I would post a pic, but I feel just flat out weird saying 'look at me!' I'll stick to her pictures saying 'look at her!'

MC has been HORRIBLE this past week (I say that in the most loving way that a mother knows)! ATTITUDE! TANTRUMS! And now all-of-a-sudden, has become Daddy's Girl!!!!! She wants absolutely nothing to do with me. A momentary relief for me. I just laugh at Matt...he's getting a taste of what I deal with everyday. We spent the weekend at the lake and MC got to ride in a boat for the first time. She never warmed up to the lifejacket and had this confused look on her face the entire time. It was a combination of 1) I'm going to throw up, 2) I'm scared to death, and 3) I might fall asleep. IF ONLY I had my camera then.

It SHOULD have been a better weekend, but it started out last Wednesday by almost ripping my toenail out during Pilates. Yes, leave it to me to find a way to physically hurt myself during a non-strenous activity. Stretching, literally...I look down...and there's blood on the floor.

Then the rain came while we're trying to enjoy the outdoors.

Then MC just won't stop screaming or throwing fits.

Then I haven't slept well the last few nights.

Then I forgot my hairdryer, so I was having several bad hairdays...with a bruised foot.

Then a REALLY loud bird outside our window almost got shot at 5:40 this morning. I thought it was the smoke alarm needing new batteries. IF ONLY I had a gun.

I know we aren't supposed to live by the 'what-if's' and the 'should haves'... I'm blaming it on the haircut. Maybe it took a few brain cells with it. Okay, I think I got all my frustrations out. Thanks for listening! Hope everyone (including me) has a better week!
