Liv persists in facing that which has vexed her for over 5 minutes and attempts to ingest and process the problem. Acknowledgement is key in this process, otherwise you end up saying things like, "I'm FINE" when you secretly want to give everyone a wedgie. Liv once again teaches us this valuable lesson as she becomes familiar with the problem before finally removing it and is restored to her happy bug free state.

What to do when life bugs you...
Sometimes life bugs. It's not like you feel like swearing or having anything to be irate at or bawl your brains out for. You just feel bugged; like a bad mosquito bite on the back of your leg or being at a piano recital that is lasting way too long. Being bugged is usually temporary and usually a matter of making some minor changes. Liv and I had been breathing garage sale used air in the house all day and while I was busy doing a lot of things, I was just feeling bugged. I put Liv down for her nap (this is a process) and then needed to take out of the trash. I walked outside and the bugginess was instantly zapped. It was a phenomenon. There was crisp fresh February air and the sun was so bright it made my eyes wrinkle. I didn't know it but I think I just needed to go outside and when I came back in I felt so fresh and renewed. That simple. Easier than making easy mac. So easy. I love that feeling.
