Day 16 - Bad blog

I'm listening to some horrible people wailing "Since U Been Gone" from American Idol, so this blog is not going to be my best. Sorry. Blame it on our babysitter who started watching the show and Ethan who is unable to turn it off.

BUT...we had a sitter tonight and had an awesome dinner at Fleming's for DC Restaurant Week with my mom. Yum, yum, yum. Oh dear God, now they're singing Whitney Houston and no it is not my favorite "I Will Always Love You." And they voted he to go onto the next round!! Randy and Paula need hearing aids. Find a happy place, find a happy place.

Hmm, brings me to a good blog photo idea! When I can't fall asleep at night (or wake up in the middle of the night), I take some deep breaths and imagine I am on a secluded beach/island with my family. I am laying in a hammock watching Ethan swim in the amazingly clear blue ocean, Evan is jumping in the waves, and Eric is either running in and out of the edge of the surf, building sandcastles, or is snuggled up next to me taking a nap. And here's the view as the day winds down...


  1. I wannna go there!!!
    LOVE the picture!! And I actually changed the channel...I couldn't take the BAD singers!!

  2. I too had to turn off the TV after 30 minutes of proving to my ears I don't love them.

    I love your "Happy place".

  3. I was thinking....we should plan a grown-up dinner in DC. With or without the boys....its not far from my house...
    Maybe even a trip to see the Pandas when it gets warm out!

  4. Grown up dinner sounds good, and we should definitely meet up for some zoo trips when spring returns :-)
