Nuts to single parenting

As if in protest, Violet started acting crazed the second we dropped Rob off at the airport. Maybe she missed her daddy, maybe she wanted to be with him in Florida (lord knows I did), or maybe she just wanted to see how fast she could drive me mental. Let me tell you, it was a looooong weekend. I just can’t go into details, and I’m sure no one wants to hear. Suffice it to say, when Rob called from Florida and told me he’d slept in until 2 p.m. and was now sitting on a beach drinking umbrella drinks, I nearly threw the phone across the room.

So we surely deserved ice cream on Saturday. In fact, it was Violet’s first cone. It took her 20 minutes to eat it, but she walked around saying “Mmmmmm!!” the whole time.

Yes, I’m already looking forward to August when I go, aaaaall alone, to Boston for Leti’s wedding. On Friday night I’m going to order spicy food, get into my PJ’s and watch horrible cable TV. Then I’m going to fall asleep and wake up completely of my own free will. Ahhhh…

The only good other thing about last weekend is that Aunt Monica visited. She got a cool tattoo. On her wrist. Ouch.

    Maybe Violet should come stay with her Aunt Sarah. Yay!

    Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I’m drawing the picture of your adorable Violet eating the ice cream cone. ^_^ I was looking for a picture of a baby eating an ice cream cone, (for a picture I’m drawing for our county fair) and this was by far the cutest one I found. I hope you don’t mind! (I’m a 16 year-old girl by the way, just so you know I’m not some sort of freak or anything, *laughs*) See ya!
