the past few days ollie's been waking up at 4am. i know it might not be the best thing to do, but i can't function -- we can't function -- on 5-6 hours of sleep so we've been bringing him into bed with us. he puts his little arms around mine and rubs my arm. it's lovely.

except he's had onion breath from the veggie burgers he's been eating.

yes, my sweet little boy stinks. so i've been mouth-breathing and cherishing every second of the early morning snuggles.

1. a truck tipped over on the bay bridge this afternoon (amazingly there were no injuries) and subsequently, i didn't get home until almost NINE PM. (i would've just typed 9, but i thought NINE would look more dramatic).

i worked at the office until it was just me and one other woman and then i went shopping.

at almost 8 when i was leaving emeryville i learned that the 3 lanes on the bridge were still blocked so i went from emeryville, across the richmond-san rafael bridge, south about 15 miles on 101, across the golden gate bridge and into the city.


it cost me $9 (or should i say NINE dollars?) to get home.

i love the golden gate bridge -- i think it's so pretty but i have to admit that every time i drive across it, i worry about a tsunami. this makes me speed. ugh.

2. because of #1 above, i only got to see ollie for about 5 minutes this morning. i miss him.

3. i'm not fond of public speaking and today i had a give a lengthy presentation. so so so so so so so glad it's over.

i've had a few people ask me if i was really filling out kindergarten applications for ollie after reading this post. and the answer is omg! no! i've not even thought about preschool yet, let alone kindergarten.

ollie turns 1 in less than two weeks.

i had every intention of making the invitations. but... i finally sent the evite out today. i lagged
because i was so busy hand-sewing ollie's halloween costume and filling out his kindergarten application.

i have grand plans to serve multiple varieties of cupcakes on the big day. last night i made these after i put him to bed. the recipe couldn't be easier: all you do is put all the ingredients in a food processor. they were great, too - nice and moist.

the truth is, i'll likely end up being too busy taking him to get his driving permit or helping him with his algebra homework and at the last minute, i'll buy the cupcakes from here. Or here. Or maybe here.

i heart kenan thompson. jean k. jean is my favorite weekend update guest.

ollie and i went to the academy of sciences this weekend with my girlfriend and her daughter. i really want to check out nightlife.

i love our farmer's market. the past couple weeks it's been all about apples and tomatoes. i'm going to be sad after november 22 when it goes on hiatus for the winter.

sundays with my boys are the best: we wake up, have breakfast, ollie naps, then we go the market. after the market we go the playground behind the de young in golden gate park. sundays are good and slow.

goodbye weekend. here's to a good week!

nap casualties

lately ollie will talk happily in his crib for anywhere from a half hour to forty five minutes before he falls asleep. yesterday his friends were tossed overboard.

i've been twittering a bit here and there. it's one of those things that i started doing and slowly, i'm really starting to like it. if you want to read my lackluster tweets, you can find them here.
