Ten on Ten: May 2011


May 10, 2011. Ten on Ten. Definitely not a day that I'm super excited to record in our family history book. But...it is what it is.

BSD left for work today. He'll be gone...a while. The last day we're together is either absolutely wonderful or completely lousy. This one goes down in the lousy column. We were both on edge. There's a "hurry up let's get this started already so it can be over" vibe that goes on. When it plays out this way we usually end up annoyed with each other. And this time was no exception. 

But compared to what we've been through before. This really isn't that big of a deal. Really. It isn't. And, hey. We're that much closer to it being over now.

sorry BSD is going to be gone. . .hate it when that happens around here!

Can she really do homework that way?

And the hamster is too cute, but the eyes above the bathtub are cuter!

Bridget said...

These are great 10 on 10's! I especially like the pictures of the girls!

mel @ the larson lingo said...

Love your pictures! Sorry your day started off lousy!

Kerri said...

Such FUN picture Kim! I laughed out loud at your daughter and her legs up on the counter...it looks so funny! And the hamster is too cute...and such a fun tub picture!
Thanks again for the reminder...I would have totally missed 10 on 10 if it weren't for you!

Sorry BSD is away for awhile...that stinks. I can understand being on edge and then taking it out on each other...not that it ever happens here. Never. ;)

Mica said...

loved the pics. I just can't get over the homework position...I wonder if that helps...Great 10 on 10.Mica at The Child's Paper

Nicolle said...

I'm sorry about the lousy sendoff for BSD! :( You do have the right perspective though, and I love your outlook.

LOVE your bottle tree. My mom has a couple in her yard. :)

Your kitchen makes me smile. It's so cheery and bright.

Nicolle said...

Oh, and I love the feet on the counter and the bathtub picture. Fun!!!

Aimie Campomanes said...

Love the hamster pic!

ANDREA said...

these are so good! I have too many favs, the self portrait, the bath tub one, and what looks like homework time.

karren said...

These are all great, especially the hampster! I hope tomorrow is a better day.

Traci said...

Great pictures! You have one limber little girl:)

Karina said...

How do you girls get these done so quickly. I'm just now sitting down to edit mine. So sorry your day started that way. No fun leaving on that kind of note. I love the hamster shot...and the crazy way your daughter sits. But my favorite is the bottle tree - of course you know I have been coveting one of those - but all my bottles are of the green wine variety. Love this peek into your day.

Cindy said...

These are great Kim!
Sorry for the flying solo act for awhile...never fun here either!
Love your littlest' homework position...Janey would eat dinner like that if we let her!:)
Have a happy day

sloan said...

bsd gone + edgy vibe = :-(
but ...
hamster + bathtub peek = divine!

Amy said...

I'm sorry you had a rough day :-( LOVE the pics though. But, how can BB sit like that??

Tracy said...

great pics! When I fly solo things get changed around here (paint colors, furniture, etc) - must be my way of dealing with it.

Love the homework position - I actually burst out laughing...what a great picture to capture.

Jen said...

The squirrel, the tub, the feet...so cute! I would not have remembered without your reminder! Thanks!

vanessa said...

Love the peek into your day, I guess whatever gets the homework done. lol! I love the bottle tree, my mom has one. What kind of bottle is the clear one in focus? Hope this time away flies by.

You cannot tell from your pictures that the day started out lousy, it looks like a lovely day.

My husband is a firefighter so he gone when he is at work, we have this same problem when he is on vacation. I can always tell on the first day if I am going to love having him home or wish he would hurry up and go back to work.

best,
elena

Pam said...

love your photos Kim! Let's drink a bottle of wine together and add to that bottle tree huh? Sorry about the sendoff...we've had many of those too. If I bring the wine can you teach me to sew?

And the popscicle thing is from William/Sonoma...called the zoku pop maker..I might need to try it out!

Hershey's Moma {amy} said...

RunMonkeyMama said...

OMG, I had to laugh at your DD doing her homework! I TOTALLY used to do it exactly the same way. It was honestly the most comfortable position. Now I look at that and go, "wow, really?" LOL

Kimmie said...

Hamster Squee!!!

Dani said...

This is by far one of my favorite ten sets.

How could I pick a favorite? Did you just find yourself laughing out loud all day?

Awesome.
