it's like, blah?

you know?
i just don't have anything to blog about. did i ever really? there's not all that much to say about life here in des moines right now. damon spends his days and nights studying (he's home and not studying for under 2 hours a day, from 6:15 to 8 when Ellis goes to bed), it's hot, ellis and i are bored.

we took a road trip to texas.
sorry these are all blurry, i've become a lazy phone picture taker.
ellis shopping at the children's museum. a great place, though i think he would have appreciated it a little more maybe a little older.
 playing with the dog, i wish i could get him a dog!
 spent a lot of time in sprinklers/pools. it was still 95 after 7 p.m. here, so this was the most we went outside.
 him, all but 2 of the days we were there. super fun.

ellis was pretty naughty the whole week and a half, i got a $200 inspection ticket, even though i'd driven my stupid car with no ac (which i got fixed in texas) down there in JUNE so i could get it inspected/ac fixed. don't they think i would have rather taken damon's breezy roomy car? well. they didn't care or drop the ticket. ellis and i shared a room the whole trip which meant a lot of sleepless nights and 1+ hour wake times in the middle of the night, horrible naps, and 2 very tired and annoyed Demars. so we came home early.

here at home? well... the house is a mess and i'm too tired to care. i assume i didn't fail my glucose test since my midwife hasn't called me back. i spend hours a day trolling craigslist and zillow *which by the way, is a crap website that steals information on foreclosures and labels them as rentals when they are NOT rentals*  trying to find us a new home with a little more space but still in the ward boundaries and something we can afford.

buying the veggie trays for youth conference wednesday morning... i was doing my test at 2 so i couldn't eat any pizza, brownies, pineapple lemonade or even measly salad! or even a cracker with strawberry jam on it!
i'm just ready for june 29th. when damon can take the COMLEX and be done. except then he has to keep studying for a week and a half to take USMLE on the 10th of July. cause we waited too long to sign up and so are giving up a week and a half of our almost month of summer.

i'm ready for summer to be over.
here's to hoping the next blog post will be funner and more exciting! i do love the 4th of july, it being my favorite holiday and all. though, really, the 4th of july is made for Provo, i have yet to find another place that does it such justice.

As of Late

Ellis and I are enjoying some time in Texas hanging out with family and letting Damon get some real good studying in. But I realize my epic blogging comeback has fizzled and sputtered out, so I thought I'd take the time while the tyrant is down for a nap to post some stuff from our life the last week or so.

Ellis has been pretty bad at church lately. Maybe we don't bring enough toys. Maybe I need to actually make one of those 'quiet' books that other moms make their kids. Either way, Sacrament Meeting is really losing it's flavor with this kid around.

Soon as he's out in the halls though, he's happy as can be. He thinks he owns this place.

Floral is so in right now.

Don't you think I'm so fun mom???

The dreaded first haircut.

I miss that long mullet hair.

Picking mulberries outside our apartment- they made a really good pie!

This has been staring me down for a while. The dreaded test is on the 20th. One of the reasons I came down to Texas now was to eat all the good stuff before I potentially have to go on Atkins. I've heard of some doctors or whatever telling their patient 'just have a coke and a snickers bar before you come in', um, why can't my midwife do that? This orange stuff is so disgusting.

The other night we watched our favorite movie ever, Ghost Town. How did a movie so funny ever exist? Except, how we both fell asleep by 10, so we had to finish it the next day.
Bertram Pincus: Dr. Prashar - you're from a... scary country, right? 
Dr. Prashar: ...I'm from India...
Bertram Pincus: But, you're not... Christian, like us?
Dr. Prashar: ...I'm a Hindu...
Bertram Pincus: Yeah. So, um, how would you extract information from a hostile?
Dr. Prashar: Well... as a... Hindu person... I would just... ask him... politely... 

We ate at super fancy Lucca downtown, courtesy of Damon's longest drive in the golf tourney. It was soooo good and all fancy shmancy.

The cheese sample platter and the menu. Yum.

Ah, relaxin in my coordinating underthings.

This was before an epic freakoutmeltdown at Jason's Deli.

Dancing to Stevie Wonder in our craphole 'hotel' room in OKC.

Playing with my mom's chickens out back

My mom got me my favorite lotion for my birthday... MMMmmm.. I love this stuff, I could almost eat it.

Jake in the undies section at Target.

 Playing at the San Antonio Children's Museum...

i see you too...
