It was a hard year. The hardest yet. Last fall. Leaving Yosemite in a blur to try and soften the blows of a family emergency and my sister's divorce. The darkness of that. Fresno. The tears of family, the delicacy of a two year old in question in your arms. Hard. The frustration of uncertainty.… Continue reading i am done.

you’re very yellow.
Today I wore my favorite yellow dress... the one I bought on a very happy day in Australia. I had been wanting a yellow dress. It was a very long day. The trains were all messed up [per usual], so I had to wake up at 3am to catch a train to the outskirts of… Continue reading you’re very yellow.
this found happiness throughout.
We've been here before: You and I. You: Sitting at your computer with five other tabs open, keeping up with the Joneses and that tall girl in Australia. Lost again. Moving. Again. Me: Moving. Again. Leaving another nannying family tomorrow morning. Ready to get out. Usually, this would call for some Last-Day-Kitchen-Dancing. And let me… Continue reading this found happiness throughout.
enjoy your day.
I've been thinking a lot about how to do this... how to post about this... and I've decided I'm just going to tell you about the beginning of my Monday morning. I want to remember every part about it, so I'll write everything down... I woke up and walked downstairs at 7:30am to start work. … Continue reading enjoy your day.
…what with the recession and all.
Kylie [my boss, a 29-year-old hottie] and I like our coffee. We found a local cafe that serves our favorite: Campos. The stuff is like heaven on earth, voted best coffee in the Southern hemisphere. Campos deserves a post in itself... but this post is not about coffee... Ky and I have developed a little… Continue reading …what with the recession and all.
you are a very fit mom!
Bink [aka Sienna, the baby I nanny for] and I go for a walk every day. We stroll around the shops, get lunch, or just go to the beach. It's a nice part of the day. I've about thrown in the towel on anyone not thinking she's my daughter, though. I used to correct everyone:… Continue reading you are a very fit mom!

IT’S GOING TO SPACE!
I love my life here at the Parker's... but they are on dial-up. Which means, less posts for Rach's blog... this not having wireless is a whole new world for me. This current dial-up situation makes me kinda feel like what this guy is talking about: Oh, so true. More to come on the joys… Continue reading IT’S GOING TO SPACE!
it’s just going to take a while.
This weekend turned my already upside down Australian world, upside down. [right side up??] Either way, I'm happier than I've been yet here in Australia... or at least I will be... Friday. If you hadn't noticed, the Vincents aren't my favorite people to work for. In a fit of inward rage after an incident to… Continue reading it’s just going to take a while.
