Loving these last moments of summer.
Going outside on Sunday evenings and letting the kids play.
Grabbing my camera and just shooting them, over and over and over.
Fall is on it's way.
I feel it in the crisp mornings and the chilly evenings.
Soon the frost will come, and with it the short days and long nights of winter.
For now, relishing in these last moments of summer, soaking in as much sun and warmth as I can...
...and loving in this little one whose days are passing just as quickly as the summer has, and listening to her constant (and new) "Mama! Mama! Mama!"

Photo completely unrelated to post, and old, and digital. This is what you get when I post from my husband's new laptop, er uh, my new laptop, which I wish was mine, but isn't really.
I am going to use the term 'hitting -a- wall' instead of 'hitting -the- wall'. It has nothing to do with running either.
This week was rough. I have had myself together for the past month. I have been on top of my motherly and wifely duties for so long, and then WHAM this week hit me like a ton of bricks.
It started last week when that effer Aunt F was in town, she forced all sorts of brownies down my throat and convinced me that if I went running and worked out I would feel even worse than I already did, so I stayed put, working around the house, working on sessions etc.
This week found us a one car family. Well, sort of, first we were a no car family, (long story) we were using a borrowed car that started SMOKING on us Wednesday. We got our car back in time for the busiest weeks of my life to hit. So, between no cars, trading cars, entertaining out of town guests, boutiques, sessions, editing, laundry, dishes, (or not being home to do laundry, dishes, sweeping, mopping etc.), a surprise party for my brother who is leaving for the army and has me in tears, and generally being OFF my schedule, I hit a wall tonight.
I got a migraine through the roof. I am so tired from averaging 4 hours of sleep this entire week, and yet, here I am, scheduled to wake in 6 hours and I am not sleeping. I needed writing therapy, for, even my blog has suffered damages from this week.
This week will not control me. This week will not tear me down, I will overcome and get back on my routine.
In other news and completely unrelated, but not:
Did you know I need to lose almost an entire person's worth of weight from my body? More than my almost 7 year old weighs?
Did you know my -biological- father told me that I was perhaps a wee bit fat tonight? Did you know that that made me cry in my migraine ridden state?
Then I somehow had to drive an hour home in with my migraine, fighting back the choking sobs that I am still fighting back. *frowny face*.
SO over today. As in over.
Gonna jump over this effing wall and move on...

Four-year-old Karsen Mery lost his left foot in a lawn mower accident last September. This tough little boy has gone through many surgeries and now has a prosthetic leg.
Just last week, Karsen was involved in a playground accident where he broke the femur in that same leg. This still hasn't stopped Karsen!
