Sunday reflections

Sunday mornings are sweet in this house. 
Rob sleeps in, while I have my 7am round of coffee listening to whatever Pandora station has my fancy feelings for the week. 

{This week I'm digging The XX radio; According to my sister this station makes my 18 mo. old niece really happy-- she already has good taste}

It's humid here today. 
Yesterday it felt like fall, today it feels like summer. 
That's Florida for ya. 

I have to go to Orlando to work for a few days, so I have been thinking about all the things I need to do before I go, instead of just doing them. Procrastination at its finest. 

Monday I will be stopping in and visiting my grandparents, they spend their summers in Bar Harbor, Maine-- so the last time I saw them was early June. 

I am pretty close with all of my grandparents. 
Close meaning, I stay in contact and enjoy talking with them about the happenings of life on a regular basis. 

My grandmother thinks that R is the bee's knees, in fact.. one night last spring after a few glasses of wine she told me HE COULD DO BETTER. 

I just laughed because she is probably right AND I am flattered that she actually likes him that much.
She isn't your typical sweet little granny.. she is a pistol who is very particular about the company she keeps and has a lot of opinions about a lot of things. (Sound familiar?) 

Anyway, this is the first time I have seen them since the engagement and I am sad that R will not be with me, I always like to share the love.

My little sister has a birthday this week as well. 
She will be 8. 
It seems like just yesterday I was holding that sweet little thing in my arms on her very first day of life.. 
She changed my life ya know. 
I suffered from depression starting at a very young age, and when she came around I sort of woke up out of that depressive slumber.. She made me laugh so hard and she still does. 
I can't be depressed when I have a beautiful little sister who needs me to be a good influence on her.


Time flies. Hayden is a funny, sweet and smart little bratzilla. 
I love her and miss her every day.

How was the weekend?


  1. Good luck in O-Town! And that picture of r sleeping with the kitty behind him and what i assume is your Teddy bear (I still sleep with mine too!) is adorable!!
    And your GMa sounds like a firecracker!! Have a good week love!

  2. Oh yeaaaa! Thats my little foot, the dinosaur from the land before time. :) you have a good week too kate!

  3. Hi Ryan,

    I am so impressed that you were able to openly expressed that you suffered from depression. I was diagnosed depressed 2 1/2 years ago. I went through medication and the whole she-bang. i have never openly mentioned it in any of my blogs. I guest i am not ready to share. So thank you for sharing. Your disclosure has given food for thought.

    Also i love the pics. I can't help smiling at the cat in bed. If Ebby (my cat)had his way he would be in a similar position. lol.

    Any way, have a great weekend. I am afraid i might ramble on (Smile)
