It’s a gloriously beautiful day here today. The temperature couldn’t be nicer, there’s a soft breeze and birds soaring overhead. This kind of day is why I moved back to California. Too bad I’m stuck in an office. At least I have a window.

Cole is OUT of the evil daycare officially today. YAY! I went last night and got all of his stuff. Today I called ICES and the Licensing bureau and filed official complaints against her. She will be getting inspected and written up for facility cleanliness (total lack thereof) and personal rights violations against Cole. They told me that a lot of the things I was complaining about, unfortunately, they have no control over and can’t police. It’s disgusting what these people can get away with and never even written up for.

When I told the daycare lady that I was taking Cole out she asked me why. I told her a couple of things, not even the things I was most upset about, and tried not to get aggressive. Then I asked for two week’s payment back. She tried to tell me that, since I was only giving her notice now, she was not required to give the two weeks pay back to me. I told her that I would have given her two weeks, but I felt that Cole was not safe there and didn’t want him subjected to two more weeks with her. She looked at me like I was speaking Esperanto. It looks like I’m going to have to file a small claim against her to get my money back. I was even going to let this week and the times she called in sick and asked me to pick him up early go. But now I’m counting it all against her. She owes me a couple hundred dollars, and I can’t afford to let that slide. She wasn’t worth it in the first place. Bitch.

But today is gorgeous. Unless it turns bad in the next few hours, I WILL be taking a walk this evening. Cole loves our walks. He totally digs his stroller and loves to look around. He frequently goes to sleep, but usually not until about the last 10 minutes of our 45 minute walk. It will feel really good just to get outside for a while.

Do you think I need to go around twice to walk off a bag of jelly beans?

    Aren’t jelly beans fat free?

    Yeah, but the SUGAR! The ingredients are: Sugar, Corn Syrup, Modified Corn Starch, Dextrose, Confectioner’s Glaze, Atrificial and Natural Flavors, Carnuaba Wax, Beeswax, and Artificial Coloring. So that’s what? 4 out of 9 ingredients all sugar! And they are the top ingredients, too- MORE SUGAR! One serving might not be so bad, but I had roughly 10. That’s 270g of sugar.

    I’ve typed sugar WAY too many times now.

    Why is it I’m now craving jelly beans?

    We finally had a sunny day yesterday, looks like we might have another today. So nice to be able to play outside!

    I think you need to walk around 4 times for that many jelly beans!
