A Day in Pictures – 200th Post!

Hope asked for a Walkman for Christmas…Do they even still make those?


Her version of “portable” music is so…Run DMC.  She also wants another pair of Adidas.  #myadidas #ironic


Long work day.

Long workday

Made corn chowder for the first time.

It was sooooo yummy!

It was sooooo yummy!

Dealt with a small electrical fire started by one of my HVAC units. Cost to replace the unit? $2K. Merry Christmas, we’re getting heat for Christmas!! #upbeatsarcasm Ultimately dragged out the backup space heater.


Helped Hope with her math homework. I need her to get down with learning these percentage calculations; however will she calculate sale prices for shoes???


Pissy homework correction moment.Meltdown

Watched the DVR’d One Direction concert from yesterday’s Today Show. Wished Harry would cut the hair back a bit; Hope disagrees.


Found out that she has nearly wrecked the brand new box of saxophone reeds that she just got on Friday.




Love the ritual!

ABM struggling to recap the day.

Another day successfully lived.

Thanks for following my journey through 200 ramblings!
