Photo Cheer-up

You know the song "I'm on top of the world looking down at Creation..."? They need to create a counter version of that....something to the effect of- "I'm underneath the world being crushed by Creation...." for days/weeks like this week. Going back to work, a million degrees outside, saying goodbye to two different friends- both moving out of state, being exhausted from trying to get into a work schedule while dealing with Chubbs' need to blow raspberries from 3-6am (it would be cute if I didn't then have to wake up and go to work at 6), learning that you really are not a funny teacher at all, your husband leaving a rank smelling shirt in the only air conditioned room in the house so that the one cool place to be smells so awful you can't stand to be in there more than a couple minutes before you run out gagging, a pile of clean laundry in the basement so large that not only has it started supporting the ceiling in the basement but we all go down there to get dressed in the morning....I think I'd better stop there. Anyway, what do I do when I am feeling discouraged? I spend time with Chubbs or look at cute pics of her. She never fails to cheer me up! Tonight's fix?

"I'm sorry, is there a problem?"

"Does this come in extra crunchy?"

yes, the accessory wear has begun....

I like to think that she was conducting and practicing her cut-off in this picture....(perhaps the angry look is for the trumpets?)

Yes, she may not get to choose what she wears, but she certainly chooses how to wear it.

"Come on, Mom. A sudsy soak will take away all of your woes..."
Yep. That does the trick for me. I feel better already! Love my Chubbs so much! Looking forward to having the next four days off with her!


  1. Those photos made my day:) She is such a pudgy cutie!!

  2. Praying for you. You sure have alot going on. She is such a joy to see though. I know she makes you days(maybe not your nights though) Ha!Always tough to have sleep deprived nights.

  3. The pictures of Addison add spunk, spice, and joy to my day, Deanna! Thanks so much for sharing them with us! Anna and I got such a kick out of today's "Addison Antics" photos and commentary. I will pray that you get caught up on your rest! It's so hard to function on too little sleep! Trust me, I KNOW!!

  4. Enjoy your Laborday weekend with the whole Clan. regards from Switzerland
