This Day.

Shew. Today it was just me and Tessa all. day. long. Nekos had some social obligations after work, and it just happened to be one of those days when Tessa made me want to throw myself down a flight of stairs. (I think it didn't help that I woke up at 4:30 to get some work done before she was up. I was zonked all day.) But I made myself refuse to call Nekos to tell him what a booger she was being, like I usually do. That's such a cruel buzzkill, right? Instead, as soon as he got inside the door, I unloaded on him the atrocities of my day. Then, through clenched teeth: "ANYWAY, how was your night, doll?" Basically, it was one of those days when freelancing from home and being mom to this little spirit is one too many things. Tomorrow, bless the little baby Jesus, is Mother's Day Out. And, and, and! The whole reason I'm so especially crazy with work this week is because I'm cramming everything into a few days so we can leave to see Radiohead in Atlanta on Thursday night. I've never seen them live before, and I'm imagining I'll clap my hand over my heart and stand dead still the whole time and soak it all up like a biscuit. We're going with friends, too, so that makes it extra fun. 

As a random accompaniment to this post, here are some recent pics from my iPhone:

Dearest Hattie sporting Mrs. Potato Head's shades.

Super exciting thrift store find for Tessabean. (So jealous of her sparkle laces.)

Favorite nail color:  Essie "Turquoise and Caicos," taken with the zoom lens on my olloclip.

Post first-ever spray tan (p.s. loved it.)
