I can't breathe. For whatever reason, my asthma has decided to go into overdrive this weekend and it feels like the proverbial elephant is sitting on my chest. I hate that tightness, the vice-like grip on my lungs. I haven't had a spell in a long time so of course, I was all out of my... Continue Reading →
I wish I could say that today was all sunshine and unicorns but that would be lying. Which I never do of course. Not even embellish one tiny bit. So I will be honest and say that today has been an exercise in tedium and monotony. Go figure. But it's ok. I'm paying my bills and that's... Continue Reading →
...random weirdness from my brain... I'm thinking that there is not one person on this earth that I can say whatever I want to. I mean ANYTHING I want. Lay it all out there, be totally honest. No self-censoring. Nope, not one person. Maybe that's why I talk to myself so much? Ha! Oh whatever, I... Continue Reading →
I like it when a man smiles from his eyes first. You can see it coming. The crinkling around the eyelids, the dancing light in the pupils, and then the slight upturn of the mouth a mere instant before the full-on grin. I'm just sayin'.
Ok really? Could I be more completely out of it today? I mean, I'm always a little bit spacey and in my own little world but I'm usually quite good at hiding it from people. Not today. The boss's boss totally busted me sitting in my office staring into space with a glazed-over look on my face.... Continue Reading →
This past weekend I stuffed my Element full of enough baby equipment to seriously hurt somebody and hit the road. Sam did so-so until about Paris. The new forward-facing car seat is not as sleep friendly as the infant seat and she'd finally had enough of the head lolling and freaked out. I pulled over in... Continue Reading →
I've decided that all my peeps need to be in one place so I can just post something ONE time instead of all over the place. So, everybody please pick one social networking thang and that'll be it, ok? Twitter, Facebook or this here blog...what's it gonna be?
This is my journal. My real journal. The kind with actual paper that you write on with a pen or pencil. The kind you hold in your hands, then slowly crack the binding and smile slightly as you blemish the first page with your favorite ink pen. That kind of journal. The romantic old fashioned REAL kind.... Continue Reading →
Wow that was a pissy post below wasn't it? Ugh. And because I don't like coming here and seeing that post front and center how about a baby pic? And then a goofy one of mommy? Yes, I thought so. This picture of Sam cracks me up. She was at "waterplay" at daycare and her... Continue Reading →
Yesterday I left The Man's in a snit. Got in my car, put in Pearl Jam's Ten and blasted the windows out while driving a smidge too fast all the way home. (Wow, I have used the words "snit" and "smidge" w/in the first two sentences of this post. That doesn't happen every day now does... Continue Reading →
Eh, I have no idea what "the thing" is. I just randomly typed that in the title box. I think I might possibly suffocate in this office but I'm not opening my door to get air for fear of having to actually interact with people on my lunch hour. 'Cause that would just be unnecessary and annoying. And... Continue Reading →
Cute babies in Aisle 3...we grabbed up the cutest one... First ride in her "big girl" car seat! Forward facing. She seemed to like it. It looks HUGE doesn't it?
I'm listening to some lovely French music from a fellow blogger friend and I'm totally zenning out. I have no idea what they are singing about but I really don't care either. It sounds all sexy and exotic anyway, even if it happens to be the French phone book or something. I think the creative part... Continue Reading →
Hi. Will post more later, someday, maybe, perhaps, whenever. But till then, here's a pic of Sam during waterplay at her "school". She is going to be a water baby I think. She loves waterplay and taking a bath in the big tub. Last night she was in the tub on her hands and knees... Continue Reading →
Yep, thinking. Sometimes a dangerous thing to do at midnight when an old lady like myself should be in bed resting up for a new day. But I'm a rebel like that so here I sit, thinkin'... ...about how I'm a different person than I was in high school, college and even just a couple of years... Continue Reading →
I was going to title this post "smorgasbord" but when I looked it up in the dictionary because I wasn't sure how to spell it, the word "melange" was there as another choice. And doesn't "melange" sound so much prettier and more exotic than "smorgasbord", which sounds like something you hover over at Old Country Buffet. Except that it's... Continue Reading →
Wow, it's Monday. And I'm at work. Boooooo. Usually Monday's are my day off but I decided to be generous and offer to take Friday off instead since there is mass amounts of extremely important, world-changing, crime fighting, disease curing work to be done at The Man's. Or maybe just some lame spreadsheets. But it's... Continue Reading →
Here's a very brief recap of the past week or so.... Sam's birthday was great. Pics below. We grilled with the grandparents and the Elmo cake was a hit. Literally. One year well doctor appt went fine. Shots were given, screams were heard all over the doctor's office and Peanuts bandaids administered to the wounds.... Continue Reading →
