Things that keep me up at night:

Why the Rooster in Robin Hood has a Southern hick accent.
Why the Boise High fight song came from Robin Hood.
Why Clifford (the big red dog) has a comb over.
If I am a bad mother because I gave my girls ice cream cones for dinner. (they had fruit for a snack) I think I was trying to suck up to them because they keep asking to go home and also to see Daddy.
If it is actually possible to get a $75 off $100 coupon from old navy weekly so I can justify the girls and myself getting some new clothes.
Why the Man in the Yellow Hat treats a monkey like a child except he never supervises him. The whole relationship is just too creepy for me.
If I could marry Randy and Debi's washing machine. I kind of love it. A lot. Is that wrong?
If I could somehow convince the Anchorage Daily News to Offer a Sunday only newspaper subscription instead of a just a Friday, Saturday, Sunday one.
If I will ever be able to run two miles in a row without slowing down to walk.
If Macy will ever go to bed and then to sleep in under two hours.
If the thirty minutes I spent doing Wii fit today actually counts as 30 minutes of cardio. I was really working to beat that hula hoop record.
If another child will push me over the edge into insanity. I want one eventually, but can I actually handle one more?
If Eagle River in the summer equals paradise. Seriously, it has been 71 the last two days and beautiful.
If Macy will ever learn to go number 2 in the potty... I am terrified to even start trying to train Kylie. Ever.

Kylie has been learning to talk more and more lately and her latest new phrase reminded me that I ought to be writing these down more so here are some of the cutest things that come out of her mouth:
- "I don't know!"
- "What Happened?"
- "I see you!"
- "Where are you?"
- "Why?"
- "Where Macy go?"
- "Want it" while shaking her head means "I don't want it"
- "Done!"
- "Lay Down!"
- "Hair" and "Bow" for when she wants me to put a bow in her hair to keep it out of her face.
I wish you could hear the cute sing-song way that she says all of these things. Maybe I will have to try to record them later.
Currently we are residing at my cousin's house in Eagle River (just outside of Anchorage) and really appreciating their generosity in letting us stay here. The girls have been loving the trampoline and I am learning how to take care girl of the girls without the help of PBS in the mornings (it is very useful for giving me and the girls time to wake up and allowing me the chance to shower) Justin has been back in the routine of working on the house, work and back to the house to work some more. I am glad he is working so hard but the girls and I definitely miss him. Hopefully the house will be suitable to live in this weekend.
Here's to a sunny 65 degree day!
