Just Wishin...

What am I wishing for you ask? For today to be over with. Usually I don't wish time away, aside from that last month of pregnancy each time around, but I wish I could go to bed and wake up to Thursday or Friday. Tonight is YW in Excellence night and being the YW Pres. means I don't get to get out of speaking, even with pink eye. I know I should suck it up, I can hear Brett telling me to get over it in my head, and yet the evening looms over me. I passed off conducting on one of the laurels who enjoys talking, and I even wrote out what I'll say, but I get in a panic in front of a group and I'm just a sweaty ball of nerves who mumbles, speaks too quickly, and reads verbatim off the page instead of using appropriate pauses and making eye contact with anyone in the room.

So what do I do when I have a monkey on my back that I don't want to think about? I bake. I'm off to the kitchen right now. What do you do when you're stressed out???

Sometimes I wonder if I took the wrong baby home from the hospital, she has such blue eyes and I don't recall checking her bracelet right after she was born. But, then, I see how much she loves sugar and I know that she's my girl alright! Oh yeah, I guess the cheeks give it away too huh?

Izzy started the night out with a nap on Halloween, she was a grumpy little bear, the excitement got the best of her I guess! She cat napped until the doorbell awoke her, but then she went out trick or treating with the gang and brought in some candy for her parents, thanks Elizabeth!

Doesn't Quinn bear a strange resemblance to Papa John? He was such a sweet little chef, he baked with me in the afternoon (pretty much our favorite activity), then set out to collect AND consume a bucket of candy all in 24 hours time. He is obviously my spawn as well!
Ashley would love this...remember that once cute fluffy clean pink poodle you bought Anna? Its a bit raggedy and more than a bit dirty, but when she found this poodle costume in the store she thought about her pink poodle and HAD to have it.

We hope you all had a Happy Halloween!
