its too early

It's too early for me to be up on a Saturday but I haven't got to sleep in like I like to (which means till 11:00ish) in over a year.  I guess those days are over until Sam and any other munchkins are much much older.  Sam has been sleeping through the night the past few... Continue Reading →

Sam 4 month stats

Sam had her 4 month check up and shots today. The shots were ooky.  She cried, I cried. It was a sob fest in exam room # 2. She got over the tears quickly though and has been a real trooper tonight. She's sporting some very cool Tazmanian Devil bandaids right now. I gave her some infant Tylenol... Continue Reading →

back to skoo

Whip out the Trapper Keepers and the Dukes of Hazard lunchboxes, it's back to school time! At least it is for 30-something graduate students who have no business setting foot back into a college classroom.  Yet even as I type that I know its ridiculous to think that just because I'm not the "traditional" student...

time is screwed up

Do you know why time is screwed up?  Me neither, but the reason that I know it is - because the days are way too long and drag on forever but the evenings are entirely too short and fly by with a whoosh and a 'see ya later'.  The batteries are dead in the universal clock and or the spacetime...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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... Continue Reading →


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 pull her sock off... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

we’re almost there folks

Wow, my focus is even more off than usual today.  It's all the election hoopla.  Although I'm ready for this to be over with so we can move on, I'm very excited about it all.  I keep checking the news sites and wanting to get home to watch all the coverage.  Twitter has been invaluable...

plug your ears

I am going to have to keep ear plugs in my glovebox for anyone who happens to be riding with me when I go pick up Sam from day care.  We've been lucky that she doesn't seem to mind her car seat too much but she does go through spells when she cries for a while... Continue Reading →


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...

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... Continue Reading →

happy puppy

Doesn't Cooper look like he's having fun? Maybe he should be a canine male model because I think he's got that over-the-shoulder pose down pat. At Beaman Park...

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...
