"Musings and Ramblings of A Convoluted Mind"

Wow! Today was a super fun, super busy day!  With spring coming around the corner the temperatures are getting better outside!  Today we nearly reached sixty degrees!  HEAT WAVE!  Of course we took Bradley outside and we played for close to four hours.

And being the mom I am and with my project Three Six Five, I had my camera fixed to my hand most of the day.

So happy to be outside playing in the nice warm sun!

And of course we had to get into EVERYTHING…

… even though we have tons of toys.

One thing about the lot our house was built on, it use to be cotton fields and farming area.  This is clearly evidenced by all the turnip we have growing in our yard!!    I’m not sure that I’ll ever feel comfortable enough to eat this, but the horses and cow sure love them!!

We were so busy exploring today!  Bradley discovered what dirt tastes like (and he didn’t enjoy it).  Even the kitty came out to play with us.


“What’s that over there?”

A plane?

A horse?

A big hole?

Bradley loved playing in the sun and in the really long grass!  Most of our lawn won’t grow but we have this one strip of long, lush, dark green grass.  Bradley decided to relax for a little while.

Too darn cute!

Mommy found a Ladybug!

77/365 Anything But Love


I am so tired today and I’m not sure why. I’ve done my share of running around, took the baby to the doctors, had to get an eye exam myself, got new contacts and glasses, met hubby for lunch… by the time I got home I was bushed. And I haven’t even gotten to the gym yet! Today is a late day for the gym since Bradley isn’t in daycare today.

I just don’t feel motivated today. In face, this picture for today was a last resort (but I think it came out pretty well actually). I just wanted to show a friend the cute ring I got for myself. Sadly the batteries died in the camera died before I could really take any more pictures. At least I had this though!

I’m getting fed up with living in Korea. Even with having a three bedroom apartment, our place it TOO small with a toddler running around. Basically we live in a giant square with areas sectioned off for bedrooms. We can’t set things up to be very baby proof and even locking the doors, they are so poorly made, that our son can jimmy the knob and open the doors. He gets into the computer and messes with stuff. I know I shouldn’t really be mad at him but I get so aggravated! Some days I wonder if I’m cut out to be a mom. And here, hubby wants a second and THIRD child. I really don’t think this is for me.

I mean, when my kid is being good he’s awesome. He really is a spectacular child. I wouldn’t trade him in for anything. I just get tired of having to tell him no all the time. He knows he shouldn’t do something but does it for attention. But I can’t entertain him ALL day. I need some me time too. I’m always available to him but he just wants all of me all the time.

Me and The Wiggles, anyway.
