one turkey and various side-dishes later….

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and from the blogs and Tweets I’ve read, most of you did.  Thanksgiving in the Finn household was no exception.  We had a small gathering of family over.  My father-in-law, brother-in-law, BIL’s girlfriend who is part of the family, and The Accountant’s grandparents.  It was a food and football filled day.  Yay Titans! I must brag on The … Continue reading one turkey and various side-dishes later….


A Twitter conversation made me think of this. I check PostSecret every Sunday for the new confessions.  There’s just something very appealing to me about letting the world see whatever you deem to be your secrets, except you’re anonymous.  Weird isn’t it?  Its like you’re being risque, yet safe at the same time.  One day I’m going to send in my own postcard, or several.  … Continue reading confessions

grumble grumble

I’m bummed tonight.  By the time I got home from work, Sam was already in her crib asleep.  I kept thinking she’d wake up any minute but it’s almost 9:30 pm and she’s still sleeping.  It’s all I can do not to go in her room and “accidentally” cough really loud so she’ll wake up and I can be with her.  I’m really trying not … Continue reading grumble grumble

my head hurts

My head hurts partly because I’m tired and a bit stressed and partly because I have a crazy brain that is full of swirling thoughts and various rambles.  I have a post in progress about my return to school next semester but it’s still stewing and not ready for public consumption just yet.  It will come later.  I also have something to say about dead people, job applications, baby … Continue reading my head hurts

taking a moment

I hope you were able to take a moment at least to thank a veteran or remember those who served our country and have now passed on.  Both of my grandfather’s were/are vets, as well as many friends and other family members.  I thought of all of them today as I was driving home.  It occurred to me during one of my mind ramblings that it … Continue reading taking a moment


Today has been busy.  Up early for me on a Saturday to clean the house and get Sami ready for her big photoshoot.  Heh.  We had a photographer come take some shots of baby girl.  Sam did great for about an hour and then she had something of a meltdown and just wanted to go to sleep.  Hopefully the photographer got some good shots even … Continue reading today


I’ve decided that becoming a mommy means that you are automatically crazy.  Especially if you are also a mommy who blogs. At 3:00 am this morning I’m changing Sam’s diaper before I give her a bottle.  She seems to do new things every day and this day’s first was….wait for it….to pull her sock off all by herself!  Yes, you read that correctly.  Aren’t you glad … Continue reading certifiable

what she said

I was trying to think of something eloquent and meaningful to say about the historic events of last night.  But as usual, when I try too hard my brain decides to pick that very moment to go on vacation to Tahiti so I’m left completely blank. Then I read Danielle’s post and thought, “that’s what I mean to say”.  So instead of me saying it … Continue reading what she said


Another weekend bites the dust.  Boo.  I am soooooo sick of all the election mumbo-jumbo.  Seriously, can we just get this over with please?  I’m glad I early voted so I don’t have to worry about getting to the polls on time or fighting the crowds.  For once I did something ahead of time and didn’t procrastinate.  Go me.  Saturday Night Live = hilarity. I … Continue reading tidbits

blog changes

I’ve made a few changes to my little place on the internet.  The Blogroll is now it’s own page.  It was taking up too much of the sidebar so I’ve cleaned it up a bit.  Please let me know if you want to be added to the blogroll or if you want me to remove you.  I’m also playing around with a few new pages … Continue reading blog changes

quiet saturday

Is it a beautiful day outside or what?  I love fall.  We had a very quiet Halloween.  No trick-or-treaters.  Probably because all the lights were off and our house didn’t look very welcoming.  Someone wasn’t in the spirit of the evening.  I am excited for next year though when Sam will be older and can get into the spookiness a bit. Today will be quiet … Continue reading quiet saturday
