This is my third year participating in a Week In My Life, hosted by the lovely Mel at Adventuroo. Mel spends most of her time these days over at Momcomm, dispensing sage advice about living, loving and working in Blogland. You really should check it out if you want to make internet friends and influence internet people.
This is the final day of this week in my life. I’m glad I made myself do it, even though it was a struggle with this monkey in my brain, gumming up the works. I don’t scrapbook or journal and I want my kid to see what life was like for us between the big moments. I’m hoping that when this event rolls back around next year, I’ll be more chipper and chatty and capable of describing the progress of our daily routines in words both witty and touching. But it falls in autumn, when the light goes screwy and Depression kicks the ass of most everyone in town so chances are it will be crappy cellie pics and minimal wordage. Which is okay, I suppose, because life isn’t just Big Moments, celebrations and holidays. It’s all the moments; big and small, exciting and boring, celebratory and somber. Just an unaltered, true slice of a week in my life.
Some random things about our lives right now.
- The kid calls me Mrs. Kisses like, all the time

The husband let me sleep until 1. A rare luxury to be able to indulge Depression.
Zuzu, the world’s most spoiled cat. Only drinks from a running faucet.
A motley crew of muffin makers and sparkle bat crafters.
He’s damn cute even if he only does speak Whinese.
