Midweek Kids Fix…

Spring is here, a-Spuhring is here,Life is Skittles and life is beer…

How to know that Spring has finally, truly sprung out here.

2009 - Crabapple

Of course a big, dry windstorm knocked that all out, but at least we had about 3 days of beautiful white blossoms.

So far the kids have been having fun coming out in the fresh air.

Kids - Spring09

Kids - Spring09-2

Of course, Spring weather brings the cats out of the house too, to romp and to play and spend all their pent up energy.

Cats - Spring09

Or they’ll just lounge together and do absolutely nothing.  At least they’re just like the lions spotted by the kids at the zoo previously.

Zoo - Lion

And unrelated to Spring except for the buoyancy of my daughter’s hair sporting the double Who do!

Emily - Double Who

Overdue Kids Fix…

I hadn’t realized it, but it’s been nearly three weeks since I last posted pictures of the kids.  As the old saying goes, time flies when you’re starting grad school again.  So here are pictures from last weekend when Mommy took the kids to the zoo and amusement park.  (To keep the home site clean, I’m going to put most of the pictures below the fold.)
“Good morning, Mommy, it’s time to get up!”

Emily - Good Morning

“Let’s scare Daddy by text messaging at age 1.”

Psyching My Cycle…

Maybe I should try this to stop waking up so tired. I have been eating food a little too late.

Simply stop eating during the 12-16 hour period before you want to be awake. Once you start eating again, your internal clock will be reset as though it is the start of a new day. Your body will consider the time you break your fast as your new “morning.”

For example, if you want to start waking up at 2:00 am, you should start fasting between 10:00 am or 2:00 pm the previous day, and don’t break your fast until you wake up at 2:00 am. Make sure you eat a nice healthy meal to jumpstart your system.

Another example: If you are travelling from Los Angeles to Tokyo, figure out when breakfast is served in Tokyo, and don’t eat for the 12-16 hours before Tokyo’s breakfast time.
