watching: Dual Survivor. the dude just found a huge log of elephant dung and is so excited.
listening to: silence. baby J and miss poopy shorts (soon to be miss dry shorts officially) are sleeping for the night. the eldest and the husband went camping.
eating: nothing. which is about to change soon. i have survived on the following today: one banana. one bowl of strawberry yogurt. 1/2 bowl of toasted oat cereal (only half a bowl because baby J was super fussy while i was attempting to eat it and i gave up). 1 orange. about 20 graham crackers. a bagel with peanut butter. half a bag of kettle chips (stale). a handful of jelly beans. 1 1/2 cups of coffee. and lots and lots of water. i. am. famished.
wearing: new exercise calf-length pants. because i think i'm getting to the age where wearing shorts in public isn't comfortable anymore. maybe that will change once my thighs shrink to normal size again. in fact, i didn't have any clean comfy pants to wear to pick up the little girls from Mother's Day Out today, so i swung by Ross on my way and bought 3 pairs. i changed in the van in the parking lot.
one-of-those-days-moments today: plunging the clogged toilet. plunging the clogged toilet full of way too much toilet paper that my 2-year old thought was necessary to wipe her bottom. plunging the clogged toilet full of way too much toilet paper that my 2-year old thought was necessary to wipe her bottom, while holding baby J.
it was a great idea until: when the husband and the eldest left for their camping adventure, miss poopy shorts was broken hearted and nothing would calm her spirit but allowing her to play with the water hose. this was a good idea until she sprayed baby J who was calmly bouncing in the exersaucer while watching me plant new irises and lilies given to me by my mother-in-law. you should've seen the look on his little shocked face.
it made me feel happy when: baby J fell in love with Elmo tonight. what is it about that little red monster??
wishing for: chicken tenders, crispy hot fries, and lots of honey mustard. but i'll settle for a bowl of trail mix and an oatmeal cream pie. which is what i'm going to get right now.
