take this day by the throat

pattonYesterday was frustrating, not super tick bite, mom-in-the-ER frustrating, but frustrating none-the-less. I could not complete anything. I put a fix in for NitroVideo that didn’t end up working. I ran into issues importing liv’s blog entries into her new site (I am very proud of her design though – I’ll link when liv gives the OK, I do whatever she tells me to). I also failed to finish The Bridge Over the River Kwai (which is great, I’m just so tired) and I didn’t find time to finish Me Talk Pretty One Day either. I’m so… I’m so unsatisfied.

But today is another day, and I’m going to take this day by the throat.

Right now there are my kiddos favorite bedtime books – Super Fly Guy, SuperHero ABC, Frankie Stein (thanks to Carolyn, this was on the summer booklist from Nokomis), The Fat Cat Sat on the Mat (they like this one because the cat looks a lot like Mr. E), and Motorcycles.

  1. ((hug)) I hope today is better. I remind you what you’ve said to me: “life grades on a curve.” And I’d encourage you to look at your measure of success. You may not have accomplished somethings, but you were an awesome Dad yesterday. So what’s your measure of success?

  2. We were on vacation, so I am just now catching up. Your kids look like they are having such a great time! I love the videos and pictures!

    On a Limb with Claudia said what I was thinking (although maybe better than I would have worded it), so I’ll leave it at that.

  5. I want a tree house!! (you can’t see me but right now I’m pouting and kicking my feet…) I want a tree house!!!!

    And why in the blue hell would anyone want a tattoo of David Letterman on their tooth? The world is just plain weird…

  6. Every single day–since I became a parent–I have a day like yours. It never stops being frustrating.

    Okay, half of those kid books you mention? My kids’ current faves. SUPERHERO ABC’S is staring at me right now.

  7. OMG, those tooth tattoos? Seriously – I have seen it all now. The Dave Letterman one is CREEPY, yo. How’d you like to stare at his mug in someone’s mouth? EW.

  8. Dude, at least you’re reading an adult book! I studied Lit in college and I haven’t read anything above Dr. Suess in like 2 years.. See don’t you feel better now?
