Okay, okay


I know, I know....I've had about 15 different layouts in the last month.

I'm sorry!

But I think this one might stick for a while.

I've been looking for something lighter and less...dominating?

I dunno, the pink and green was cute in the initial layout, but then it was just too young and not me in the most recent layouts.

I wanted something a little lighter and a little fancier and more me.

I like to think that I'm classy from time to time. My wardrobe frequently blends old looks with new looks, so why not do the same here?

So I spent a little time between Gimp and Fireworks (the two together form this poor mama's version of Photoshop). Of course, I didn't go with websafe colors, so let me get to my other computer before I decide if I like it for good or not. But I do like that it's lighter and cleaner looking.

Anyway, so that's that.

The only other news in my life is that my son wiggled and squirmed all morning long. So I've been awake since 4:15. Come 5:45 and I was still begging, demanding, and insisting that he be still and go back to sleep, I decided to roll his butt on out of bed.

He should sleep better tonight.

Oh, and on the way to daycare today, he pointed at Sonic and told me "Mama, that's where the ice cream lives!"

Even when I'm sleepy and irritable, I can't help but be smitten with the boy!
