I'm in Denial

I'm feeling the blues today. I have been dreading this week for awhile now...I have to return to SanDiego on Saturday morning. I will cry for a couple days probably then suck it up and get on with life. I have been at my parents for 6 weeks and it has been just what I needed. I got a lot of help from my mom and a lot of encouragement from my dad and sister-in-law Carlene. I know most of you think...really how can you not like where you live? Sunshine..beach...well I know its just H-A-R-D. I'm a single parent most of the week and by the end of the day I am deflated and ready for a change. Hopefully the weeks will go by fast and a bit smoother with cooler weather {In my prayers daily}

So Long El Dorado Hills...for now! I've found us the perfect house to move into in 2 years haha I will be back sooner then later. I Love being home, I'm a home body and its tough for me to a drag my feet literally to the car {Larry as my witness} This time I will try to be a big girl and not ball my eyes out on the plane ride..It's been a great 6 weeks. At one point I forgot I lived there...literally.

I can do this! That's what my mom keeps saying. I didn't know how hard it would be to be a law school wife and to not work or go to school its a HUGE change for me and I'm trying to figure out my place in life again post student.

Happy Eve of New Years Eve.

Christmas and Such

So I know its the 28th and most people are christmas'ed out, but our tree is still up so its still holiday spirity around here. We had alot of fun hanging out with Foell cousins and Martin Cousins. Lots of food, talking to John, talking in general, movie watching and sleeping. We went to Old Sacramento to a light show one night, has a long section at the temple, had Christmas eve dinner then went to UC Davis Med center to wrap presents for sick children, played cards, opened presents it was great fun. I still never got a great family picture of the three of us, but oh such is life we will try again next year, maybe I will be skinnier and not have as many chins :) Hope everyone had a great weekend.

P.S. Max has two teeth!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these paintings. I want them so much and can't wait to get them when we have the opportunity. They are painted by Liz Lemon Swindle and she has a lot of different portraits of Christ as well. I can't wait to have these on my wall one day. Which one do you like the most? I can't decide. Right now her paining is featured on Go check it out!

Is anyone else love/hating this season of Bones?? I mean COME ON. I hate that Booth is dating Hannah...seriously she is annoying. Its all driving me nuts. Also every episode seems to make Bones seem more and more odd and anti-social, more then normal anyway. Driving me nuts.

Also how hot is Booth..I mean I want to make out with him{don't worry Larry is well aware} I am sure he is into moms that are already married...I mean come on I'm a catch.

Relaxing in the 95762

So I have been hiding up at my parents house for the last 3 weeks almost while Larry has been studying 16 plus hour days at the law school. Max and I have been hanging out, sewing, cleaning, cooking, shopping [I wish] and enjoying the space of being in a house. It is so nice to spread out after being confined to my 735 sq foot apartment chained to a nap schedule I go nuts. To be honest I am a bit depressed knowing I have to go back to the mundane day to day of our life in SD. Driving Larry back and forth to school and praying we won't get a heat wave again.

Lets not talk about that anymore. It is depressing.

Anyway we are enjoying our time. Grandma Harris came to visit for AJ Martins blessing and we did lots of fun things and long hours of shopping and talking. We also have been listening to lots of Harry Potter and Max has been eating lots of solids these days and "talking" up a storm.

We are excited for cousins to come visit and for Larry to be done with all his finals. He takes his first one tomorrow morning, we are praying hard for him, and know he will do great!

There is not to much to blog about other then that...very boring these days :) Hope everyone is doing great and enjoying the holidays. Here is some cute pictures of max.

Calling all moms and or ANYONE!


My sweet innocent baby had been sleeping not a peep/soundly 10-12 hour nights and now is deciding to wake up 4 times a night for NO apparent reason. He has had plenty of food and has not over slept during his naps. Ahh mom AnnMarie is fading, especially recovering from the flu its been no fun. I can just see me being pregnant next time around sick, and letting Max destroy the house while Im so sick to care...Oh fun. Any suggestions out there for a whacked out sleep scheduled?? I am hoping it is just a phase and he will be back to his deep sleeps of 12 hours...I need that time to reload :)
