I'm in a spitting mad mood and I'm shouldn't really say all that much, but sometimes you just need to vent.

I try to be really careful about my writing topics. Truthfully I know I have so few readers on this blog that it doesn't have much impact, but you still never know. Every once in a while, I hear from someone that I didn't know read my blog. And to those people, I say, "Hey, leave a comment and then I'll feel appreciated!"

My Mom regularly reads my blog, apparently (though she never leaves a comment either!) and so I say to her, "Hey Mom! We miss you but hope you're having fun!"

Though, I've weaned you off actual blog posts in favor of Maddie fashion show pictures, I have a bunch of random stuff on my mind and just want to blog. A rather alien sensation for me!

*I have been on vacation for the past week and a half which is one half of my total three-week vacation this summer. There has not been a single day that I have not worked. On my vacation. There was some fun work that I had planned to do while I was on vacation -- that's how lame I am: I have "fun work." However, I am deeply annoyed to be asked to work on my vacation and this will be addressed.

*I recently found two new blogs that I adore looking at: Clover Lane and 71 Toes. Both have the most beautiful pictures and seem to be almost like reading someone's life story. Between those and my favorite DIY blog: Young House Love, I get plenty of inspiration for my daydreams of someday owning a house.

*I'm finally recovering from the whirlwind weekend of single parenthood. Rob let me sleep in this morning and tomorrow is the official start of his vacation. One week off together is completely the most unheard of thing ever! Of course, I have to work tomorrow. So we are postponing our vacation a day. It's still sustaining me through the day of sticky weather. Maddie has been going "Dada" crazy lately. She desperately needs some Dada time, as evidenced from her propensity for staring at family pictures, stroking Rob's face and whispering "Dadadaadaddada."

Look, I managed to blog without giving out too much information or talking about someone that I shouldn't talk about. Hooray! Don't worry, I have also posted a Maddie fashion show blog and I have a few others in the can, ready to post for the future.

ADDRESS IT. A lot. Ridiculousness.

P.S. My word verification is "hughhhor". Did Blogger just call me a huge whore?
