peace, love, joy & cheddar flavored goldfish

It’s lunchtime on Christmas Eve and I’m stealing eating Sam’s goldfish because we aren’t eating dinner until 3:00ish at the father-in-laws. Today will be family time there and then tomorrow we will have Santa and just chill at home I guess. Then on Saturday it’s on to my parent’s part of the state for the day. And then things go back to semi-normalcy, at least … Continue reading peace, love, joy & cheddar flavored goldfish

okie dokie

My hands are super dry and I forgot my lotion today. Am going to have to go bumming for some. Lovely weekend. Finished shopping. Well, make that started and finished shopping. In about 4 hours. At Target. Go me. I approached it guerrilla warfare style. Ambushed the place and got out as fast as possible. Seemed to work great. Excellent strategy if I do say … Continue reading okie dokie

Rumor on the streets is that my mother (Maw Finn, you might know her, she comments here sometimes) performed some kick-butt karaoke this morning at a middle school talent show. Its official.

All is ok but there was a slight concern that she is losing weight, and not gaining at an appropriate level. She’s dropped below the 50th percentile and is only just over 19 lbs when she was at least 24ish. When … Continue reading sam check up

stuff ‘n things ‘n more stuff

Sam got her seasonal flu booster shot today, and an unexpected H1N1 shot. She’ll have to go back in a month for the H1N1 booster and then hopefully the flu will be so a’skeered of her it won’t dare go near the lil’ punkin. Crossing my fingers. She did ok. Screamed during the shots of course but so do I, heh. She’s finally at the … Continue reading stuff ‘n things ‘n more stuff

yep yep

Bookclub was great this morning. I took Sam with me so The Accountant could sleep in and she did great. I came prepared with a bag full of toys and cheerios; the wrapping paper and boxes from our Dirty Santa festivities also helped entertain. We had read John Grisham’s Skipping Christmas as our December selection. A nice easy fun read. We now have our next six … Continue reading yep yep


why doesn’t the name “wally” rhyme with “sally”? this occurred to me on the drive in this morning and will not go away from my brain. much like my question about why the last part of the word “arkansas” is not pronounced like the word “kansas”, or vice versa. these things bug me. and this is why i do not care for grammar. if whoever … Continue reading ok
