Hey Hey, It's Wednesday!

I almost blew it this morning. I didn't set my alarm last night, so this morning, I awoke with that startling feeling-you know, eyes flew open and went directly to the clock. I overslept by 17 minutes, so it wasn't that big a deal, but it did mess my morning routine up a little. I had less time to concentrate on my farm on Facebook. Oh well, at least my body clock woke me up at that time. It's just a side effect of my job. Super tired. All. The. Time. I know I could go to bed earlier, but I feel like I am wasting my kid-free time.
Quinn got new cleats for baseball. His feet are so small. Our choices are limited. These are a 12, but he's just now in a 10 1/2. Baseball cleats run small-or else Nike's do. They are a pain in the ass to put on too. The cheap cleats were unavailable in such a small size, so we went with the more expensive Nike cleats with the changeable swoosh. Quinn can change the color of the swoosh, anytime he wants. Pretty cool. He'll need these Saturday, for baseball tryouts. He'll get on a team, but for some reason they have the kids try out. Soon we will be in the midst of baseball. Let the craziness begin.
Look who's cute! We have been practicing her sitting. See? She does very well. Today we also practiced "leave it." I put a treat on the floor, and then I don't allow her to take it. She has to sit, and look at me, and I feed her a treat. She did very well with it, and I have noticed that when she tries to eat the cat vomit outside (I know, gross), she will stop, if I say, "Leave it." Smart dog.
Here's my newest "World's Smallest 1,000 Piece Puzzle." I went to Michael's today and got it.

So much practice makes Maya a sleepy, sleepy girl. She was passed out, twitching for quite some time this evening. I even went to the back of the house, without her following, that's how passed out she was. She's passed out now too, wedged between me and the sofa, in her spot, with her head on my leg.

I, also, fight the urge to stay up way too late. Even though my kids are teens, I still feel that I need to stay up later than I should.

And I wish I could use that "leave it" thing on the teens.
