the gamber.

Slow down, we've got time left to be lazy
All the kids have bloomed from babies into flowers in our eyes.
We've got 50 good years left to spend out in the garden
I don't care to beg your pardon,
We should live until we die.

We were barely 18 when we'd crossed collective hearts.
It was cold, but it got warm when you'd barely crossed my eye.
And then you turned, put out your hand,
And you asked me to dance.
I knew nothing of romance, but it was love at second sight.

I swear when I grow up, I won't just buy you a rose.
I will buy the flower shop, and you will never be lonely.
Even if the sun stops waking up over the fields
I will not leave, I will not leave 'till it's our time.
So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your side.

It was the winter of '86, and all the fields had frozen over.
So we moved to Arizona to save our only son
And now he's turning to a man, although he thinks just like his mother,
He believes we're all just lovers he sees hope in everyone.

And even though she moved away,
We always get calls from our daughter.
She has eyes just like her father's
They are blue when skies are grey
And just like him, she never stops,
Never takes the day for granted,
Works for everything that's handed to her,
Never once complains.

You think that I nearly lost you
When the doctors tried to take you away.
But like the night you took my hand beside the fire
30 years ago to this day
You swore you'd be here 'til we decide that it's our time
Well it's not time, you've never quit in all your life.
So just take my hand, you know that I'll never leave your side.
You're the love of my life, you know that I'll never leave your side.

You come home from work and you kiss me on the eye
You curse the dogs, you say that I should never feed them what is ours.
So we move out to the garden and look at everything we've grown.
And now the kids are coming home
I'll set the table
You can make the fire.



cake cake cake.

i bought this cute book for parker today. it is by the husband and wife that design ugly dolls. it was on sale for $2.99.

i discovered this today as well. the cutest things ever.
oh my god, dont you wanna diiiiiie they are so great?


dancing baby,

i bought the fabric to make parker a tutu.

have i mentioned how cold it is here? in the 30s.
i was on the phone and when i looked up, this is what i saw. i tried to take a photo but my camera was set to video, so this is what i got, i really laughed for a long time.

parker got her flu shot today. not the swine flu one, just the regular one. she has been in a terrible mood since. it just took me two hours to get her to fall asleep.



just bought these for parker! expect to see them at her party! bought them at milkshop.
ive got a lot going on. but i feel alright about it.
everything for parkers party has been shipped off to jessica. all that is left is some sewing. im making a tutu for her!
between yesterday and today i ate an entire bag of peanut butter with chocolate chip cookies. ugh. being stressed sucks.

here is the craft table for parkers party.

parker looking like her dad with a goatee.
after this bath, parker got a rash all over her body. poor thing with her sensitive skin! she got sick this past week with an infection. i took her to her russian doctor and she gave her some antibiotics. now its just runny nose.

im getting anxious for her party. things are coming together. i just hope there is peace when i am there. im so nervous.


this is insane.

i got a speeding ticket a week ago. its $224. i dont know if i should just pay it or get a lawyer and go to court to try and have the points dropped.

parker is sick. i thought she was teething but she is actually sick.

im so disappointed in myself right now. i place too much care on one thing and i make myself crazy. i cant wait to talk this out with a professional tomorrow.

parkers party plans are coming along well. tracy and i made hats galore the other night. im anxious for everyone to see them.

parker keeps calling people with my phone. if you get a really long voice message of a certain someone shrieking, you now know why. she called dave three times yesterday. and leigh.

im making myself crazy.
