I'm tarred. Meaning tired. Like so tired that I must pronounce it slow and with a southern drawl along with shuffling around in my pjs with hideous bedhead. Tarred, I say.

Spring break is coming to an end, and so are the colds and runny noses. All three of my boys had a bedtime snack at 11:15 pm last night. Needless to say, yesterday was a very. long. day.

Then, just before bed I read this post over at Faith Lifts. Was that for me?

It's also my Dad's birthday today. If you didn't know this, I am a Daddy's Girl. I still crawl up onto his lap. He still
always comes to my rescue (car troubles especially... thanks, Dad!) I will always remember when, as just a little girl, he would rock me to sleep singing his coffee-breathed off key lullaby Tu Ra Lura.

This is one of my favorite pictures of him, from a couple years ago at an air show. He got to ride in this plane (a Stearman bi-plane, I remember!) The pilot even flew him over his house. He looked so awesome in it.

Happy Birthday, Dad!


  1. Happy Birthday to your dad! I'm with you on the Tarred!

  2. That is a great shot of you dad! Happy B Day Daddio.

    you are fortunate to have your dad around...lost mine over 10 years ago and selfishly, i wish i still had him around to make that "automobile" phone call too or that "finance" call. HBD to your daddy.

  8. I'm sorry your tarred. As moms we all know that feeling well. But I had to laugh at your hideous bedhead. I do EVERY morning!
