General musings on the ups and downs and ins and outs in the life of a 30 something, unmarried, life loving, some times interesting and sometimes not, mostly happy girl just trying to figure it all out!

Playtime with Auntie

It's been a busy, but great few days. Niki and I have been unable to break out of the "pack it all in" mode we usually have when I eventually have to leave. We still have this urgency to do everything together. It's open for debate as to whether or not we'll grow out of this. :)

In the mean time, Nathan's been getting away with a lot at my apartment! Between my Mama, Katie and I he's getting spoiled rotten. The other night he was over in his jammies and decided to wear Katie's boots and spurs and my cowboy hat. Adorable!

He also jumps off of my bed and onto the feather mattress pad. Obviously, there are going to be rules for Auntie's house and for home. Because he's not allowed to jump on (or off) the bed at home.

As for the pets, Van's loving all of the attention and activity. Yesterday Niki and a friend took their kids to the park- so I brought mine along too! She loved it. She had all of the kids in the playground delivering sticks to her in short order. And Little Brown Noser seems to love her new apartment play space. She runs around the living room every evening.

Me? Why thanks for asking. I'm good. Everything seems very surreal, though. It's a huge change and as great of a change as it it- it's been tough too. I'm excited and petrified at the same time. Last night Niki and I watched Eat, Pray, Love and I was crying through half of it because of her explanations about dealing with change and making the changes you want in your life. 

I'll try to get back on a better blogging roll soon. It's back to the real world next week, so hopefully I'll get into a groove. And the apartment's almost unpacked- so I'll work on some photos.

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
