Middle of June... Say wha?!

How did June creep by so fast? I mean I know evenings were passing by without me blogging but I didn't realize HOW MANY!!!

So what happened this month?? Well we started off the month with a camping trip to my dad's trailer in Little Orleans, MD. I actually started a blog about our trip but never finished it. Soooo more on that to come.

Connor is still blowing my mind left and right with his imagination. I mean.... he's just a big ball of awesomeness. Pure awesomeness.

This past weekend he decided he wanted to sleep in the play tent that we have. I let him sleep in it for nap then he wanted to sleep in it for bedtime and then he was hooked. I felt bad for letting him sleep in the floor. I mean, we had a nice comforter folded up under him but it was the floor for crying out loud! Tonight I constructed a blanket fort around his toddler bed and he finally climbed back up in his bed. I was even able to move the tent out of his room. Whew. A blog post on this is coming soon as well.

Me? What's going on with me you ask? Nothing really new really. I haven't been running at all and I really need to start. Like yesterday needed to start.

I decided to stop reading the autobiographies, biographies and memoirs for now. They were boring me and I was beginning to dislike reading. It was feeling like homework. I started reading Dark Legacy by Anne DeStefano. It was a book I downloaded on a Free Download Friday through B&N. Not bad I suppose. I took a break to read the first book of 50 Shades of Grey by E. L. James. It was steamy but I couldn't get passed the writing style AND then once I found out it was based off of Twilight Fan Fiction it was all over for me. The characters also drove me nuts.

We also celebrated Father's day which I hope to blog about soon as well. Father's day totally snuck up on me as well. The Tuesday before I was sitting on the couch and BAM! it hit me.... UGH. June is usually one of my favorite months but I feel like it is flying past me in a whirl wind.

I'll end with this cute recording/video of Connor and his new found love of Knock Knock Jokes.... we were in the car and I was driving so I couldn't just record him... I turned on the recorder and dropped it in the cup holder.



  1. I too read 50 Shades and agree wholeheartedly that the writing style killed it. To me (aside from the steamy bits) it was completely juvenile.

  2. Loved the knock knock are so funny. Can't decide if I want to give 50 Shades a look or not...doesn't sound too compelling... :D

  3. I have to say that I am not really tempted to read 50 Shades. Don't know why.
    As for kids, well, they do have a vivid imagination, don't they?

  4. June? Is it not still May?!
    Can't say 50 shades has tempted me. Seems like an excuse for women to read soft porn and disguise it as feminism. From what I hear from friends, the prose and actual writing style/plot is non existent.

  5. June has come by and now just a week more for it to go... time travels faster than light!
