Just some things

So, we obviously finished up our beach vacation! I dropped the ball on uploading the rest of the pics and blogging from the beach, so I will get caught up on that soon. We had a really good time, though!

Some things going on lately:

*I got a lot of reading in at the beach! I tend to go through cycles with my reading VS internet usage. I'm either really into reading, or really into checking FB/IG/Twitter/blogs. Well, ever since the beach, I've been on a reading kick. If you're on Goodreads, check my page (Susannah Edwards) for TONS of dystopian and other fluff reviews and recommendations. I just finished the Private series and the Privilege series. I have a thing for YA literature. I can't stop. These are just some teenage boarding school/drama/murder mystery things I got really into. They are old and are probably at your library! I only had to buy 2 of the 29 books on Kindle.Yes, I read about 29 high school books in 2 weeks. Every nap time, bed time, free time, I was hooked.

*Someone hold me because Mother's Day Out/School is over and I'm already DROWNING in no alone time. I know it's a first world problem, but I need like 3 hours once a week to myself. I need to grocery shop and clean alone. And go shoot guns. And there is none of that on the horizon. I need to find a teenage babysitter, like yesterday.

Yes, I need you to come over NOW. Thanks.

*Emma likes for Harrison to come into the bathroom with her sometimes. And, we are loosely working on potty training him. As in, nudity and a frog potty in the den. Anyway, they go in there and she potties and they talk and laugh and whatever. I don't ask questions. Today, they went in there, he took his potty, they both got on their respective potties. I'm in the kitchen. I hear the door close. About 5 minutes later, I was like wha?? Where are they? I go in there and Y'ALL.They had used every single flushable wipe Emma has for #2, dunked it in the potty full of tee-tee, and were "washing" the toilet and hardwood floors. It was EVERYWHERE. I literally died. Fell down dead. Then I came unglued. OHHHHHHHHHHH EMMMMM GEEEE what a way to start the day! Lesson learned-no visitors in the potty and no closed doors!!

*If you are going to buy a travel DVD player for trips, do yourself a favor and NEVER order one from RCA. Rip the freak off. This is our second set of DVD players from RCA. Go spend the extra money on a Sony. We haven't even had these jokers for one year, and this is the second time they have broken. After digging around online to find the customer service number, I get connected to 4 different Indian agents and then they tell me to call another number. Now they tell me the "fuse must be out" and I need to go buy another fuse. And if that doesn't work, to call back. I'm sorry, but are you SHITTING ME? You go buy another fuse and mail it to me, jackass.

That's pretty much all that has been going on for the four days we have been out of school. Lots of second birthday planning for Mr. Harrison has been happening. Only 18 more days until his party! Goodness, I better get busy! Hope you all are having a fun summer so far!


  1. Hahaha what the eff on the DVD players?! We have the same ones that are 3 yrs old and still work! Ps I found my cord to join them and I have found that if they are strapped too tight around the headrest they won't work. Can't believe Harry is pottying! Maybe he will be like scarlet and train himself! Miss y'all!

  2. I am the same way with reading and internet usage. Lately, it has been all tech for me, maybe this vacation will slow things down and I'll pull out a good book.


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
