this week in pictures and project life

here are the following weeks of project life that i haven't put up recently. ali is starting a "week in the life" today. i was going to do it but thought, "i already do project life which is what happens in our life each week, do i really need to do this?" no....whew....i kept thinking "what am i going to take pictures of. i already do that enough." i'm not sure how far behind i am so i will do week 13 to 15.

week 13:
here i stopped using alphabets to spell at "week" because i was running out of  w,e and k's. i did this on a couple of week's and decided that i need to go back to putting "week" in alphabets. i like it much better.

week 14:

week 15: for this week's photos.

eric and i dropped liam off at the sitters on monday. i was suppose to have a dentist appointment but they rescheduled it. so we took him to daycare anyways and had a day to ourselves. we went to psu to an ipad drawing exhibit. it sounded cool so we went. and all there was was an ipad on the way that you can look at pictures with and them printed off and in a 3 ring binder. they were cool to see as they were drawn on the ipad. then we went downstairs to the gallery where there was some really cool paintings:

we had lunch at chili's. i love their all you can eat soup and salad!

you can't see these two women very well but they were the double mint twins from the 70's. they were also in space balls. they are from here and live here now. they look really rough. poor women, hollywood was hard on them. i was trying to get a picture from the bakery without looking like i was a fan. they used to come through taco station and buy 20 bean burritos when they were 2 for a $1 for their dog. i could only imagine the gas smell from the dog.

i was so excited to get this book! the bloggess is awesome. twisted just like me. has anxiety just like me. i am loving the book. still reading it as it is one that i don't want to stop reading because i don't want it to end but at least she has a blog to go back to!

this week i stopped drinking pop. i'm trying to find other things to drink.

and some shots from tumbling....he still won't jump. LOL

we went to the park to play afterwards. liam demanded we go! no really...he did. we past it and he went nuts. "go go go" we got home and he was crying so i asked 'do you want to go to the park?" he nods yes so we go, its better that way.

and now for some photos from instagram. god i love this app for the phone!

one would think that this adorable, handsome little guy wouldn't be a total terror in the mornings, right? i mean look at that face. and that smile. there is no way that he could possible scream and throw fits. ugh...but he does. mornings are the hardest. he is just not a morning person. i never was either buddy...i understand! if we have to go in at 7 he is at his worst. he screams, kicks, hits, when he is getting changed. he clings to daddy. if daddy puts him down he freaks and throws a fit. mornings aren't for him. now if we are off and he wakes up on his own then that is ok. so we are trying to think of a way to get him up and having a calmer start to the day.

i tookt he above picture the other night. i decided to get the rebel out and play with it. oh how you need one when you have a child. the shutter speeds help you get such better pictures. i love my canon rebel! here are a few more shots from that evening....

even if mornings are terrible, i love him with all my heart and soul. he'll grow out of it. once he quiets down all is good with all of us. it's part of being a toddler. we know this but it doesn't make the kicking and screaming any easier lol.

i'm still around

i stopped writing on my blog and then i stopped posting pictures. just in a blah state right now. lots going on. lots i am trying to work on. i want to get over my anxiety issues, so working on that. liam has tumbling and let's add his attitude change, which isn't that bad but the NO's are starting to get to us. i want to lose weight. i want to do this. i want to do that. feeling like i want to explode at times. my mind never seems to be still. i like to write to get things out but i don't know...dont' want to worry anyone and i don't know how much i really want to put out here. i feel like i am always trying to fix myself. i'm tired of that. but i have to work on fixing the fears and making them stay away. but i am finally realizing that i can't fix this all myself. that the many years i was in a very unhappy marriage with a verbally abusive spouse, it will take time to get this crap out of my head. so i will be trying to fix myself for a while longer. have to for my family and especially for me. it's worth it. i can do it.

i'm still doing project life. still doing a photo a day. android now has instagram so i am totally addicted to taking pictures and using that to edit them. are are some that i have taken recently:

after hunting eggs outside our house.
