Yesterday

Yesterday was a great day. I worked on CME's in the morning while dh entertained J. I had completed enough to be able to renew my NC license, so I did that while J was napping. I also completed so many of the things on my to-do list during that nap that I was energized! What a great feeling. Now I only have to maintain the house, and work on pages this month. Really, getting all that stuff done for my license takes the weight of the world off my shoulders.

Yesterday would have been perfect had J not completely lost it in the haircutting place. Little dude's hair grows entirely too much and too fast for that kind of melt down every time we go. He screamed bloody murder. He was better when he was 1 year old (like in the photo). He was so freaked out that a stranger was so close to him, touching him. I was very embarrassed, it was crowded in the barber shop and he was so loud. My cheeks were hot enough to fry eggs.
Then we went to Chipotle for dinner, and I guess nothing is recession proof as they have increased their prices by 50 cents across the board where we live. Not like it would stop me from going there, but it was kind of sad to see none the less. Still, I enjoyed it. It put me into a euphoric bliss for the next few hours. So, all things considered, it was a great day.
We put together J's kitchen this past weekend in anticipation of bad weather. The sky looks kind of weird, but no snow here yet this winter so we will see. I can tell this is going to be a strange month as far as sharing my work on the blog is concerned. I have lots I'm working on, nothing yet that I can share just yet. Happy Monday everyone!

Oh - I looooove that sweet photo! I can't wait to see you scrap it! Reminds me of the photos I have of my daughter's first haircut - so typical - I had no idea what I was doing back then - or what scrapping even was. And the photos are sooo bad! LOL But this, this is a MEMORY!

Oh I feel your pain on the little boys who hate getting their hair cut. Even at 4.5 it's no picnic here. We're working on it.

My J screamed at the barber to the point that we let his hair get long. But then we switched guys when we moved, and suddenly everything was a-okay. Don't really know what it was, but the guy we got when we moved here is still his guy six years later.

I miss seeing your work, and will be glad to get a flood of it after CHA!

Adorable photo! If only every haircut could go this well. Sigh. Upon reading your post I find myself craving Chipolte. Of course, they closed 15 minutes ago. Ugh. LOL!

Jillian still hates having her hair cut - I have to hold her hand and bribe her with lollipops ;o)

I well remember the haircut battles with my own boys! At 5, they still are too thrilled with it, but it does get better! Such a cute pic though!
