Living with my little love barnacles has its ups and downs. On one hand, it’s nice to know that I am always thoroughly and deeply loved. On the other hand… Stop asking me questions! Stop! Nobody. Touch me. Again. Just give me a minute of peace.

Here are some of my favorite spots to escape to when I need a break. Enjoy!


In the Shower

Yep! I just need to finish washing my hair!


In the Laundry Room

I’m in the laundry room. Doing laundry. Why, does someone want to help me do laundry?


In the Bedroom doing Chores

Yup, yup. I’m just making all the beds. I’ll be down in a minute.


Running Lots of Errands

Oh no, please—they still think I’m running errands. Finish the story. Oh my gosh, this cake!


So Many Errands to go to in the Car

They don’t know I’m home yet, and I have been for a while.
