Friday, Mirror Photos, and I Am An Oddball

I joined a Flickr group today. It is I now belong to two groups, but I actually posted photos to this one. Here's the first one. I had a hard time getting the shots in focus without the flash. Then, I got Bay in on it. She acted like it was a big deal, but she really seemed to love it when we got started.
When we were done, I took some of her when she was working on the computer. She is so pretty. I think that every time I look at her. She's spending the night with her friend, Kim tonight. I felt so sad when she left, which was very silly.
I feel so odd. I've been stuck in the house for a week because of the smoke. Max can't be out in it, so he has been unable to go to Summer school. Mom has been helping me get Bay to her Summer school classes and back. I've appreciated that so much.

Robin brought Sarah home today. I was so happy to see her, I may have hugged her too long. They had to cut their trip short so that Mom and Robin could drive up to the funeral.

Robin and I wanted to take Mom out for a margarita at Chilis. They make lovely margaritas over there. First we walked over to Kohl's to look for a funeral dress for Robin. I felt like sick to my stomach in the store. We had a hard time finding something that would work with Robin's boot - she had her cast removed on Monday - but eventually she found something. She needed earrings to go with the dress. I kept wondering if she would ever wear the dress or earrings again, as they would forever be the Grandpa's Funeral Dress and Earrings. I do think that Grandpa would enjoy seeing her in something cute.

We started over to Chilis - this is all just about about a quarter mile from my house - and I got a call from Bay. She said, "Max barfed, hurry home!" I took off, but I could not run because I had the wrong kind of bra and flip-flops. I did hurry and I kept trying to redial her the entire way. Max is scary when he barfs. When I got home, she was sitting on the couch, using my computer, and talking on both her phone and the home phone. I was so angry because my mind was jumping to thoughts of the paramedics and 911 and why couldn't I make my feet move faster!! the entire endless way home.

Mom and Robin are now over at Mom's. I am afraid that I acted oddly, which makes sense since I feel so odd. I would really like to talk to Steve, but he hung up on me when we had a discussion about the Constitution yesterday. I wish he was here. I wish he was here and he was hugging me. I also wish he'd never hang up on me again because it's rude and when he does it reminds me that sometimes he can act a bit like Bailey.

I like the mirror-photography idea. And I swear in the second pic down (the sepia one) you look like a young Susan Sarandon! Props to a fellow oddball.

I'm not that much younger than Susan Sarandon. It's the eyeballs, I do have Susan Sarandon eyeballs. ;D

ooh I like the mirror effect. :) I agree Bay is very pretty and am happy she played along with you. My son barely lets me take photos of him. Will try some this week.

Your daughter is beautiful! I love gazing at my little girl when she doesn't know I'm looking, too...and I'm always struck by her beauty.

Oh, and I agree completely with my hubby- you look just like Susan Sarandon in that photo!
