Beetle bugs and blouses

It's 8:30am and my girls are still asleep so here I sit. Bug and I stayed up late last night and Buglette got up fussing at 1am so they must be tired. But I will need to get us all on our regular schedules again because school starts in two weeks for Bug. The girls are in bed by 8-8:30 and then hubby and I follow no later than 10. The girls and I are up at 6:30am getting ready for school and the day. But since it's been summer I've let them fudge on bedtimes; no more, Mama's gonna crack the whip!
Hubby is back to work after his month-long vacation (see 'Staycation') and life is returning to normal around here. I love having him home but boy, it's harder to keep my house clean with him here! He's even great around the house but of course, doesn't clean the way I do so it never feels really clean unless I do it! I'm not complaining but I can tell you all the truth! 
We went to Disneyland for two days to end our staycation this past week. We met my mother-in-law and hubby's brother there on the second day. We stayed at the Hilton which was very nice. Buglette still has a very difficult time sleeping away from home so none of us slept well. Then to do two days at Disney with not not enough rest is difficult at best but we had fun and made the best of it. 
Anything funny happen while we were there you ask... well, of course, it is us after all! We were waiting for our shuttle to the park out in front of our hotel and were chatting with a nice family when a huge (I mean Huge) flying beetle (could it sting? I assumed so) flew into my blouse. Now, if you know me, there's never a lot of, shall we say extra room in any of my blouses due to a few large occupants, so how this thing got down there I'll never understand. But it scared me to death. Hubby was still chatting up our shuttle companions as I did the funky chicken. Oh, did I mention I had like, a ten dollar coffee from the hotel's Starbucks in my hand? So there I am dancing around with this thing in front of our sort-of posh hotel with strangers watching (not to mention my incredibly concerned hubby; read: sarcastically) and my ten-buck coffee goes flying. Beetle-bug of course, disappears, I have left a lovely skinny vanilla latte all over the Hilton's walkway, I am still grossed out by my blouse's visitor and now I have an audience. Just one of my days.

  1. This is great, Mindi! Keep it up. We miss you guys and LOVE knowing what's going on w/you and the kids. How did Bethany do at Disneyland? I remember taking Trey there as a baby. I LOVED their nursing stations! Funny story about the beetle! Yesterday Trey got chased down by a snake in our backyard and was screaming and crying like a baby. Yet, today, he was out there w/the neighbor boy looking for it, and trying to catch it. To be a boy... My kids start school tomorrow... Yay! Love you.
