Lately I've been having trouble balancing everything in my life. I know you'd think I'm a stay at home Mom I should have all the time in the world. But there really aren't enough hrs in the day & I'm not up at 5am with Tara. I have to figure out Tara time, cleaning/laundry/housework time & Me time. It's hard to be on a schedule everyday. I am with her eating & napping. Now that the weather is getting better I try to get out at least 3 days a week sometimes 4. So that throws everything off. So that's something I really need to work on.

Easter photo shoot

I took some Easter pics of Tara today. Since we most likely won't be visiting the Easter bunny. I had a hard time getting her to look at the camera. She was too fasinated with the eggs. JoJo even became interested in them too.

Went for a walk

Tara & I went for a walk on Friday thru' the neighborhood. I didn't realize how hilly our streets are here. I had a hard time getting down our driveway & up. I haven't walked for a while, so I think it was a combo of not walking since Nov & the crazy hills here. My heart was pounding. It was nice to get out & get some air. I saw 2 cats & a dog. I want to start walking more, but might just go to a park near us instead of here.

I love free stuff

I went to the mall today & got some stuff in Bath & Body Works. Sweet pea foam soap & some sweet pea body lotion. I got this free tote bag free. I think it's really cute. Very springy. I love free stuff.

Animal abuse

I really hate animal abuse. I saw the story about the marine. I won't get into it. I don't want to talk about it. I turned the channel cause I didn't want to hear the whole thing, but I get the gest of it. Now it's gonna be bothering me all day long. I just don't understand how someone can do something like that. Hurt an innnocent animal & have no feelings. I hope they do something to the guy that did it & take it off You tube. I feel the same way about people who hunt. They're still doing animal abuse. They try to justify it by saying they eat the animal after & the animal is put on this earth for that etc... I don't buy it. I think animal abuse bothers me more than child abuse in a way. Don't get me wrong they both really upset me. But I understand how parents can snap when a baby won't stop crying or whining.

Baby blues (not)

I know I'm suppose to be really sad that Tara is growing up fast & getting so big. I'm not tho'. I'm excited that she is growing up. I can't wait to put her hair in ponytails & paint her nails. So she'll get excited for Christmas & Easter. She'll have fun at Storyland & other amusement parks or other vacations that we'll take. I think in a few months by the time we do take a vacation & she celebrates her 1 year birthday she will get somewhat more excited about things.

My Funny JoJo

Yesterday I was heading to Tara's room to get a bib for her. I walked by our room & had to back track. This is what I saw.

The night before it was really windy & the snow kept hitting the window. JoJo was trying to stand up & look out. I told Anthony the next morning. So he decided to make it easy for her to look out.

Craigslist Rocks

I really am addicted to Craigslist. We hadn't gotten any clothes for Tara for a while. We went out last Monday night to make a deal. I had fun going thru' all the stuff & picking out what I wanted. I got a high from it. I got home & went thru' all the stuff & said "I want to go out again". We'll wait a little while cause she has enough clothes for now. But I can't wait to go & get some Spring clothes for her.
