Day 34 From Burbank: Hiding Places

Karen sends her posts from Burbank, CA, USA

Me: Hey Buddy, your show's over. Let's turn off the TV.

3: Oh no. Today's my day off. I'm going to relax and watch TV all day.

Me: You're 3 what are you taking a day off of?

3: Shhhhhh I can't hear the TV.

The TV was turned off.
Followed by a meltdown.
Followed by a time out.
Followed by me hiding in the closet eating a chocolate croissant and calling my mommy.
Grandma Dee talked me down and it's off to Aunt Bonnie and Uncle Jimmy's house.

Aunt Bonnie made us this delicious lunch.
Chicken salad, grapes, strawberries, cheese and roll.
Uncle Jimmy, an architect, played trio blocks with 3 and
I can't believe I didn't take a picture of the cool stuff they built.
And then......
They gave him this cool Hot Wheels Crash Course.
Uncle Jimmy set it up and they told me to go shopping for a little while.
Bless them.
I was back an hour later.
After this meal and a little break I feel invincible.
Hiding in the closet is but a faint memory.

Snack was greek yogurt with honey
baguette with cheese spread.

Dinner.......fries dipped in mayo and a salad.
I'm in full comfort food mode.

In the last 48 hours I've seen Hubby a total of 30 minutes. He's working super hard and we all appreciate it. That's the trade off when you work freelance. There will be a lot of hours away from each other. But then when the job's done we're together so much we end up bumping into each other like sudden retirees.

That said, I think it's okay that I'm missing him.


  1. The cat won't let me in the closet.
    Need to purchase a cone of silence.

  2. That lunch does look heavenly. I wish I could be like 3 and declare a day of rest, tv watching all day, and eating all the food on that plate.

  3. I need a Grandma Dee on speed dial to talk me out of the closet every now and then...

  4. I'm glad to see you've finally come out of the closet.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.
