Happy Birthday to my sweet dad! Love you so much! Be home soon! xoxoxo. (I was going to post a cute picture of my dad and me but there was an unfortunate incident at my house yesterday and a bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper decided to fall off the nightstand and straight onto and into my laptop. Hubs is trying to salvage it but we … Continue reading today!

and here we are

So here I am, hiding out from my day job in a random-to-you coffee shop trying to think of something interesting to post.  And the words just don’t come. Nothing is in my brain suitable for this screen. I’ve  been in a weird place lately. Well, maybe no weirder than I usually am. I guess it’s just me, being my restless, unpacified self. Oh, here’s something random … Continue reading and here we are

Dear Sam,

You might find this interesting when you get older. Or just further testament to your mother’s weird quirkiness. Anywho. Your father has gotten into this incredibly adorable habit of calling you “Buttercup” or “Butternut”. Don’t ask me what the whole “butter” theme is all about but isn’t that the cutest thing? Your mother (that’s me), on the other hand, tends to call you “Stinker Butt” … Continue reading Dear Sam,

back to your regularly scheduled randomness

I bought a pumpkin today. Never bought a pumpkin before that I can recall. Here’s my question…is there a difference between a “pie pumpkin” (that’s what it says on the sticker) and one you use to carve a jack-o-lantern? Do I need to return my “pie pumpkin” for a “jack-o-lantern” pumpkin? ‘Cause you know I ain’t makin’ no dang pie! Or a jack-o-lantern either for … Continue reading back to your regularly scheduled randomness

fee foo fah

Yep, just made that title up. Straight from my brilliance. Be jealous. I am kind of digging this article…They’re On Their Own. My parents didn’t pay for my college. I had scholarships, loans and a job. I graduated. It worked out. Sort of. I’m not saying this is what The Accountant and I will do (especially since Mr. Mad Planner has already got a college savings account set … Continue reading fee foo fah

terrific tuesday post

I really struggle with my post titles. Can you tell? Heh. I woke up in a rather irritated mood this morning but am quickly turning my ‘tude around because various good things have already happened and it’s not even 10am yet. Wanna hear ’em? 1. Sam was in a semi-decent mood this morning even though she has a cold and is producing more snot than, … Continue reading terrific tuesday post

well haaaiiiiii bloggy blog o’ blogginess!

So I know I’ve only been away a few short days, but I’ve missed my lil’ space here on the internets. Been busy with…well, honestly, I don’t even know. Nothing specific, just life stuff I guess. “Life Stuff”…that is such an indistinct term isn’t it? Anywho. Let’s see, here’s some highlights from the past few days… Had a “me day” last week. This entails taking Sam … Continue reading well haaaiiiiii bloggy blog o’ blogginess!


Ever hear someone talking but have no idea what they’re saying and couldn’t repeat it 2 seconds after? Yeah, I’m doing that today. Everyone sounds like Charlie Brown’s teacher…wahwahwahwahwah. It is hot as hades in here and I’m not even kidding. Maybe it’s my weird illness, maybe it’s the hot soup I just ate for lunch, maybe it’s this weird rash I seem to have … Continue reading wah?

was it something i ate? or do i have swine flu?

I’m all gurgly. Is that even a word? Last night was brutal. I won’t go into details but suffice it to say that the toilet and I bonded over several hours. Stayed home today but will go in tomorrow since apparently I am indispensable and my health doesn’t matter as long as the damn work gets done. Just know that I have a particular desk … Continue reading was it something i ate? or do i have swine flu?

stalling with cats, dogs & ears

So it’s Friday morning and I have the day off but am super busy. In my mind anyway. I’m physically not super busy because I am completely zoned out in bed with the laptop and a poptart. But trust me, in my brain I’m being productive. Need to get off my bum and pack for Sam and my overnight trip to the parent’s tonight. We will return … Continue reading stalling with cats, dogs & ears
