Current head space

Just to give you an idea of where I'm at right now: I have an appointment with my therapist, whom I've been seeing for the greater part of a fucking decade (what can I say? I believe in the process), on Thursday afternoon. However, I'm thinking of skipping it, using the child care I've already arranged, and getting a pedi instead.


I also have about a dozen really cute Hollis things to share that are about to explode out of me. So, I'll leave you with this:

It's so fucking hot out in Texas right now that the only way I can get my son any vitamin D is by allowing him to play with the hose at his leisure. I know. We're also in a drought and have strict water covenants, but what can I say? It's either him and me or the state of Texas and I think we all know where I stand on that.


He likes to water paving stones.

He likes to water plants.

He likes to wash away his impure image -- oh wait -- that's me.

He likes to water my feet.

He likes to water himself.

He likes to repose.

But mostly, he just makes me have sunshine inside. I don't know whether or not he likes this. But I do.

Update: I canceled. Will attempt a reschedule for next week before I head out to San Fran.


  1. You gave me a business idea. Therapy sessions where you can get a pedi. Now that is smart thinking.

    I say go to therapy. Therapy is always good.

  2. He looks like he's up to something in that first picture.

  3. What an absolute tee total cutie he is!

  4. Oh, he is so cute! And YOU are hilarious!

  5. beautiful shots..I love your mirror in the garden idea. Can I steal it?

  6. He is BEYOND darling. Total sweetheart.

    OMG Jessica he's sooo stinkin' cute, I can't get over it! BTW, my son does the same thing but include watering his sister.

  8. What a fun post! Love the pics of Hollis. Thanks for the extra smiles today. :-)

  9. Oh, I love these pictures! He reminds me of my little boy, who does the same. I love how he "eats" the water :)


  10. Holy crap, your son is adorable. And I don't say that to a lot of people because frankly....their kids aren't adorable. But he's so cute I'm thinking of offering up a swap for my youngest...they look to approximate the same sage...16 months? That's mine anyhow. He even comes with a built in "pointer" when he's got doo doo in his drawers. Think about it. Let me know. Oh, and Happy Thursday. I'm popping over from SITS roll call.

  11. Adorable pictures! Thanks for stopping by. I hope the corn bread turns out well.
