Isn't it just the strangest thing to witness an accident? One moment you're spacing out pumping gas, the next, four cars you were half watching are crunched together. It always sounds less movie like and more plastic like than I expect. Not that I witness accidents all the time.

The causer was mad, but I think mostly at himself. He was mumbly and hands-up-in-the-air, but not yelling *at* people.

Also strange is seeing someone, that you didn't know had false teeth, without her teeth. Oogy boogy. Thank God the kids were there and not the 
husband. Much easier to behave in their company.

I really need to get better about pre-viewing what I let the boy watch. The other night, we were perusing youtube 
and found a video of a shark that a man caught on the beach. Fine. But then he yanks out a pistol. Fortunately, I clicked away before it got bad.

This afternoon, he's watching animal planet, and I'm making lunch, about 6 feet away. He has me come over to whisper a secret to me - something about a fish that will swim right up in your penis if you're not careful. Yikes!!

Sitting here on my lap, nursing mostly playing, I say "are you ready to put jammies on?"

You know what the answer is? "milk".

I know that's what is occupying you right now, goofball.

Woohoo!! No traffic ticket to pay!! I rock. ;o)

Then I went to target and spent the money on cute shoes and boots and new backpack for the boy. It's very cute and says things about "futbol" which is good for a little Europoseur like himself. ;o)

I was also incredibly excited to see, on my way to the closest current target which is about 30 minutes, not one, but *two* new targets slated to open in October. If they have a photo studio I will keel right over in joy. But seriously, new target might make me do that anyway.

In the morning, I go to court to contest a traffic ticket. 16 years of driving and this is a first. Wish me luck or something. It's not at all how I pictured it for several reasons.

I've decided that I'm going to just suck it up and get the ballerina stuff I so love from old navy, and if I feel bad about the money, use it for her halloween costume. I can do a little bun or something. That is hysterical.

I think maybe the last time I was this excited about a new shopping venue was my first trip to H&M.

Today I went to the New Balance factory store. Running sneakers, cool. Sparkly purply baby size sneakers for $10, freakin fantastic. I am on like a super high over the stupid place.

It's probably also too much caffeine and not enough food, not enough down time in the last few days. I am going to die if someone comes to look at the house Saturday.

The girl has this jungle thing. She always says "Jungle beans, jungle beans, jungle beans".
None of us know what this means. 
Today while I was changing her, she commented on Jungle Poop. News to me.

Okay. So NJ is the state with the most hellacious traffic ever.

Left at 1 pm friday. Arrived (according to mapquest, 4 hrs 40 minutes) at 8  pm. And the stops were only about 2 for 8 minutes each. Seriously now.

But it was worth it. Got to see bunches of friends and make the new ones. I got to *be* the special surprise at a bridal shower. Then fun crepes for breakfast. Still an awful trafficky ride, but we got to go to ikea, which if you know me, is always a good thing.
