Last night, I got kicked out of my own bed, by the dog.  I don't know why I can't 'man up' when it comes to the dog.  I am her biggest supporter and defender....yet she causes me nothing but trouble at night.  I'm the one that says that it's okay for her to be in our bed.  I may need to rethink that plan.  The past few nights have been rough sleeping.  Not only am I hacking a lung all.night.long but Lucy wants to sleep between my legs, on top of the blankets.  Makes for a very uncomfortable night.  And she doesn't listen to me, so pushing her causes her to push back, yelling at her makes her snore louder....  it's just easier to take my pillow to the couch.

Kage got up at 5:30 this morning, which has become the norm for her.  Remember back in the day when I would get up at 5:30 in order to blog, have my coffee and 'me time' before she awoke.  Ha.  Not anymore.  I'd have to be up at 4:00 for that to happen.  So my me time is during nap #1.  And I get about 90 minutes to blog, facebook, shower, clean the house.  No rush.

This morning, I put Kin into her stroller at about 6:30 and off we went for a nice long walk before the heat got to be too much.  It was gorgeous outside!  We walked from our apartment community all the way to the downtown area and back.  At least a couple of miles round trip.  She did so good.  She loves trucks and buses, so every time one would pass she would wave and then say buh-bye (and I swear that she thinks she is in Georgia because she has the cutest southern drawl). 
Everything is becoming so green!  I love renewing!  And have I mentioned how incredibly happy I am that we have moved?  This new town is so freakin' cute.  I mean it is way cute.  The little downtown area just looks like it fell out of a Nicholas Sparks novel.  And although we downsized from a town home to an apartment....we I love, love, love this apartment.  I love everything about it.  And I hope that it stays that way....for a while, at least.  Cause my goal is to live here for two pay off my student loans after graduation.  That's the plan anyway.  But then again, God laughs at plans and there is no crystal ball to tell me what my future holds.  So we'll just see.  But for today, I'm so happy here and can't see myself anywhere else.

She got sleepy on our way back.  So she had to rest her baby head for a minute.  The 'daycare lady' let her borrow this pair of crocs.  I guess she wants to wear them around her house a lot.  I've searched for a pair for her but couldn't find some small enough.  She couldn't remember where she found these but last night it became my mission to get my baby girl some crocs.  'Daycare Lady' let Kage borrow this  pair until next week and she doesn't want to take them off!  It's so cute.  My little shoe girl.  Luckily, I found a pair of pink ones on the croc website...and found a 20% coupon!  Score!  She'll have her very own pair in about a week.

And I know that I'm way behind on the times, but my cousin told me about Pandora radio this past weekend and let me just say, Ohmagosh.  How did I not know about this?  I'm so hooked.  And because of this, I now add another tally in the "why I need an iphone" column.  I said that I didn't get the fascination with this new technology but the more that I think about it....I'm fascinated.

I've applied at three different local bars trying to get a part time server position for the summer and didn't receive a call back on ANY of them.  What the heck?  I have never had a problem finding a job before....but the more that I think about it, the more I realize that I think I'm finally 'too old' to be a server.  They are looking for that young 20-something and not the frumpy 32 year old mom.  Ugh.  Do you even know what a blow that is to the ole' self esteem?  Yeah.  Sucks.  I really do want to find a part time something until I student teach but I just don't know where to look.  I've been out of the whole part time scene since I was that young 20-something and I feel out of the loop.  Similar to how I felt when I got out of maternity clothes and forgot how to dress in regular clothes.  I'm still not up on the styles.  Those 9 months out of style really screwed me. 

I am down to about 65 minutes left of nap and I must shower. TTFN.
