the highlights

Broken water pipe is fixed. Cost = over $1000 and only $6 were for parts, the other for labor. I shoulda been a plumber. Shout-out to Holt Plumbing. They were speedy, friendly and just about perfect. Just expensive. Sam had her 6 month check up and shots/immunizations on Wednesday. She cried during the shots but got over it quickly. I was proud of her. She … Continue reading the highlights

things to say

I really do have things I want to say and post other than baby pics (not that there’s anything wrong with that mind you) but good grief, it seems I’m always too exhausted to write them. I’m not sure why. I mean, Sam gets me up a couple of times a night but nothing that ought to drain me like I feel I’m being drained. … Continue reading things to say

and once again

I’m behind on posting here, reading your wonderful blogs, emails, the  fitness challenge with the coolest sistas evah, and on sleep. Man I need a LONG nap like you wouldn’t believe! Will I ever sleep again? Ever??!?!!? Thankfully my mom came up for a few days this week and it was great. Mom’s are the best aren’t they? Sometimes I wish she’d just move in. I … Continue reading and once again

did i break a mirror or something? no, that was just the garage door and some pipes

Soooooo, here we are. Friday again. (yeah, this post was started on Friday, I realize it’s now Saturday). Doo da, doo da. I’m feeling a bit random and scattered this afternoon. Distracted. But that’s not unusual for me. It’s been a long week campers. For various reasons. (I have a thing for sentence fragments by the way. Grammar police beware.) Thursday was Household Disaster Day … Continue reading did i break a mirror or something? no, that was just the garage door and some pipes

these boots are made for splashin’

Remember when I said I was gonna buy a pair of funky rain boots? I got them yesterday and da da da da, here they are! Now it just needs to rain. Or snow. I know you’re jealous and that my brown pj pants look super haut with them but please, contain yourself. Is it weird to post a picture of your new boots on … Continue reading these boots are made for splashin’

on my mind

It’s kind of freaking me out a little that people I know (not to mention those I don’t know) are reading this and know more about me than I know about them. It’s making me kind of paranoid to post to be perfectly honest. Now granted, what they know about me is only what I choose to put out here but still, it feels a … Continue reading on my mind

where I tell you ’bout my weekend

This weekend was a great one and I’m sad it’s over. All the hoopla from the holidays is behind us and now we descend into whatever our “normal” happens to be. I’m none too thrilled about that but I’m trying to be a more positive thinker and am going to make my best attempt to carry over the good will and happiness from the holidays as … Continue reading where I tell you ’bout my weekend

looking forward and back

I love quotes. And this one by Bill Vaughan made me laugh. An optimist stays up to see the New Year in. A pessimist waits to make sure the old one leaves. Is it a pessimistic quality to love cynicism like that? Ah well, I count it as part of my charm. And here’s another one, because I also love Jay Leno. Now there are … Continue reading looking forward and back
