I dropped Tim off yesterday afternoon for a month…photo to the left was our family-dad going away pic…Scarlett looks as freaked out as I feel. He got a job working on a feature, which is good because it’s an entire month of continuous work, but he’s gone the whole time. 😦 Some italian film..about America…we’ll see what it’s all about eventually, but it’s taking him to St. George for now then Sedona for a few days..which is awesome because it’s a pretty short drive from here. Scarlett and I will meet him there for the 5 days he’s there and we’ll get to hang out!…and see the sights in Sedona, which I’ve heard are beautiful.
I was pretty anxious about this whole deal because we haven’t spent a night away from him since our girl was born. I suppose I’m gonna get a taste of what the single mom goes through this next month. Tough stuff. We are missing him already.
In other news, we found a cute little house we’re gonna try to lease out. it’s in the warm center of Phoenix. It’s the perfect size and has a lot of character. I love it. It also has grass in the front and back yard. I’ve grown to love the Arizona landscape this last year, but I’m still not crazy about yards made of rocks and cactus. Move in date is hopefully beginning of October when T comes home. We shall see.
I finally got depressed enough to do something about my post pregnancy body. The Brattons, (Tim’s sister and brother-in-law) recommended Jillian Michael’s “Ripped in 30.” Jillian is scary and gets pissed when you do things like use your bicep instead of your tricep, slack, or do 8 reps instead of 10.
She knows me. She’s really encouraging sometimes though and reminds me throughout the workout that i want to wear a bikini again. I’ve made it through three days. I feel so ripped. The scale hasn’t exactly moved, but I think it’s the fat turning to muscle..heh..
I lather baby sunscreen on her. She’s so fair skinned, poor baby. Gets that from my side. She’s also starting to get some hair on top! She’s had the old man wrap around since she was born. She took a nap two days ago and literally woke up with like half an inch of hair. Crazy. I’m kinda sad about it. I love my little bald baby head. She’s growing too fast.
Pretty much it for now. We miss Daddy and it’s only day one..
