When I get real bored, I like to drive downtown and get a great parking spot, then sit in my car and count how many people ask me if I’m leaving. ~-Steven Wright Continue reading it’s come to this…
How many times can I sing-song “brush your teeth….yay” in this clip? I remember how I used to roll my eyes at mom’s talking this way and now look at me. I even annoy myself. Ha. And I promise I’m not checking my email or texting here! I’m trying to video us both in the mirror and well, it’s awkward. Continue reading dental hygiene
I have no idea what I want to post about right now. But as you know, that’s never stopped me before. Hee. I love this blog. I truly do. I love that I have finally gotten over my very annoying thinking that I have to have something worthwhile to post. It seems that I’ve moved on to another breed of annoying thinking and now feel I can post about … Continue reading thinking out loud via a clacking keyboard
i’m wearing what i call a “gramma sexy” shirt today. sexy without a jacket over it ’cause it’s got a keyhole back, high neck and sleeveless. but with the required corporate world jacket on over it, it looks kinda “gramma-ee”. but in a sexy gramma way if you know what i mean. its monday and i had to come to work. i know you all … Continue reading there are no capital letters in this post
Playing around with some cell phone video and YouTube…Here’s Sam, “eating” and basically being distracted at mealtime… Continue reading every meal is not like this, really
Rought night last night. Sam woke up throwing up twice. 1:00 and 3:30 am. It was extremely gross of course and very concerning as she’s never done that before. She was so pitiful. She let me take her temp (which she HATES and usually fights me like a wrestler) and she was so pale and sad looking. I rocked and cuddled her both times and … Continue reading sicky sicky
I know this will come as a big surprise to most of you, but sometimes I am the biggest goofball/dork ever. The End. Continue reading shocker
I went to bed early last night. Go me. I really should do this more often as I woke up a bit more rested than normal. Funny how that works. But then I woke up in somewhat of a pissy mood this morning. Maybe its the constant rain, maybe it was a frustrating conversation I had last night, or maybe it’s just me being a … Continue reading wrong side of the bed
Sam will be moving up to the Toddler room on Oct 1! Until then, there will be short visits each day to get her used to it. I am not ready for this. She doesn’t even “toddle” yet! It makes me teary. My car smelled like poo this morning. This was after I had already taken Sam into day care. I am hoping it has … Continue reading mom stuff
Sam has a virus. Nothing to do but give Tylenol and wait it out. She is back at daycare for the moment. Still fussy but my mind is eased a bit. No ear infection either. I have “elevated” blood pressure. Instructed to see my PCP about that in conjunction with some meds I’m currently taking. I have never ever had any blood pressure issues in … Continue reading spewing
Why I’m still up at this hour I mean. It seems that if I want to do anything non-baby related, I have to do it late at night when the house is quiet and my mind is not so manic. Besides, I had some work to catch up on since procrastination is my homeboy and now that that’s done, here I am. Today has been rather hectic, … Continue reading yeah, i dunno either
The drive home yesterday was kind of brutal. I mean, it could have been worse and we didn’t have the fifty-million poops like we did on the drive down, but Sam was so over being in the car and wasn’t shy about telling us this. It was super cute how she was so happy to be home though. She about jumped out of my arms … Continue reading back to normal
It’s late on Wednesday night. One full day of vacation left and then the long drive back home on Friday. That part I dread. But it’s been a great time. Although I will be honest and say that its been much different vacationing with a child then our past trips. I guess that’s obvious but still, it’s hard to fathom until you hit the road armed … Continue reading missing it already
And then, the unspeakable purity and freshness of the air! There was just enough heat to enhance the value of the breeze, and just enough wind to keep the whole sea in motion, to make the waves come bounding to the shore, foaming and sparkling, as if wild with glee. – Anne Bronte (1820-1849), Agnes Grey Continue reading i love this tonight.
I think my head might burst open. I have a killer headache. Oy. Hubs and a coworker had an “incident” on the interstate today. A car swerved to dodge a semitruck tire that was in the road and the tire flew up and hit his car. I haven’t seen it yet but apparently the car is busted up pretty badly but is drivable and they are ok, … Continue reading misc.
First a random baby note: Sam can sign “hungry”, “thirsty” and “brush teeth”. It’s quite cute and quite handy. Except that she like to sign “brush teeth” a LOT. I think she’s just in love with the taste of the Elmo toothpaste. Can’t blame her, it is yummy. I’m just going to go ahead and apologize for this post. I just re-read it and visably … Continue reading this is painful, don’t even bother
Wow, this has been a super duper extra busy weekend! We made a quick trip home yesterday to go to a family cookout. Mom was already there and Bro dropped by a bit later. It was great to see all the cousins and aunts we haven’t seen in ages and ages. Some of them hadn’t seen us since we got married and we all know how long … Continue reading this is why i’m so tired
I should have posted this last night or this morning but I wouldn’t want to ruin my reputation by actually sending someone birthday wishes on time. Today is my one and only sibling, my little brother’s birthday! So Happy Birthday! Remember that time I flew down our hill on my bike and rammed into you on your tricycle? Thought I’d killed you! And remember when I gave … Continue reading Happy Birthday little brother!
or maybe just a staff meeting…. Continue reading Its DoodleFest ’09!!!
Sometimes my brain is completely blank, lacking even one iota of inspiration. I wonder how many hours I’ve wasted staring at the screen or into the blank pages of my journal before I resign myself to typing a few paragraphs of diary-esque drivel or filling the page with doodles of curly ques and flowers? Sometimes I dream of walking up to a random airline counter and buying a … Continue reading sometimes
I hate wearing contacts. I mean, I like having the option but I swear, after a while I cannot see worth squat with them in. I wore them today so I could wear sunglasses as I was going to be outside a lot but now, sitting at the computer, I’m having issues. Therefore I am restricting my contacts wearing to nights out on the town (HAHAHAHAHAHA, … Continue reading yada yada yada
