Last night at about 4am I felt something buzzing around my face.
Of course you would do some sleepy swats at it.... then
ah - its in my ear...

I had Ben try and suck it out with a straw, drown and flush it out with water and oil,..

So. Went to the doctor and the little bugger was squished up on my ear drum.
BLAH.  But it wasn't too big of a deal to get it out.

In the mean time.. I had an hour to entertain a baby in the waiting room. 

Where did my hands go?

The Garden


Looks pretty good huh :)
Many of these babies are going to be coming out and along with us when we find a more permanent location (all the pots, strawberries, raspberries and rhubarb)

This is pretty cool.
Once upon a time we built a strawberry-raingutter stand... that didn't get watered... so it didn't get to live up to it's full potential... BUT if you google image 'strawberry rain gutter' - you'll see my post! Ben has been watching it and has see it come up on other blogs and facebook a couple of times! Cool huh. Here is "Strawberry rain gutter 2.0". When Ben first described it to me I thought it sounded like a red-neck planter box. blah. But it looks nice attached to the chain link fence. 

In baby news. Still working on tummy time. He'll tolerate it with a cheater pillow.. but gets hot mad without it. Poor thing has to lift that big ol head...

The Job

Happy Tuesday
This week has mutual, CASA mock trial, expanding the garden, planning the sunday lesson,  pay bills, laundry every stinkin' day,  face time with Granny, lunch with Ben at work, and snuggles.

I have been out of the work force for almost a year now. Yet - I still wake up every morning with a little sliver of panic over my 'to do list' - Then I remember that this smilie face IS my job. Everything else is second - how cool is that.
 I have little day dreams like....
" ..but your honor... I was parenting!
Bailiff! Un-cuff this woman and relieve her of all other obligations!"
*sigh* That'd be cool huh.

This last week was rough. Ben was working late with end of residency assignments, I had a LOT of stuff to do young women's service auction, CASA meetings, and all the normal chores.  Blah. So we were excited for the weekend to come. We had some big plans to work in the yard, clean the house, cook/bake, road trip to Chelan...yah. None of that happened.

We crashed. :)

We did have this fun thing happen while getting ready for church. 
Don't we sound like first time parents?
