It’s a love-hate kinda thing

I love that Beckett will throw a tantrum for carrots or yogurt just as quickly as she will for cupcakes.

I hate it when I am following a loaded garbage truck and the trash I can see peeking out is paper, aluminum cans and cardboard boxes.

I love that Beckett comments “Uh oh.  Not garbage.  That’s recycle.”

I love that I have more ideas in my head than I have time for writing.

I hate it that I have more ideas in my head than I have time for writing.

I love being in the presence of contented, happy honeybees.

I hate it when people refer to bee stings as “bites”.  A sting is an act of kamikaze suicide on the bee’s part.

I love knowing that the only last-resort-because-you-better-behave needed in my back pocket is the opportunity to paint.

I hate coming home from the grocery store or farmer’s market and instantly remembering something I forgot to buy.

I love that sweetly sublime time right after the lights go out at night and Beckett snuggles in for a lullaby.

I love enjoying a delicious dinner that fits all our criteria: local, mostly organic and affordable and not having to cook it.

I hate forgetting lunch and having the only available option be bland, deep-fried, colorless, completely inadequate food from the high-school cafeteria.

I love having weekends full of fun and adventure.

I hate having an empty energy tank at the end of Friday and not getting a chance to refill it over the weekend.

I love reading the comments from people on this blog.

I love knowing where we’ve come from and where we are headed to.
