hiatus, sabbatical, break

16 Feb

I’m taking some time off from this blog. A month or so maybe, more or less.

Nothing’s wrong specifically, I just want to do some other things, write some other things, see some other things. Its a personal experiment in stepping away if you will.

Peace, love and all that jazz.

things i don’t “get”

16 Feb

curling. but only because i don’t know anything about it. i should probably research the rules and such but its so much more entertaining to make fun of it. i keep reading tweets about some norwegian curler’s pants…must google this…oh heck yeah, just saw them and may i just say that i would totally wear those! y’all know how much i love me some argyle. lighten up people and wear some crazy pants sometimes!

jimmy buffett and the whole parrothead/margaritaville thing. i mean no disrespect but really…it’s kind of like somebody’s balding goofy uncle larry going around playing the ukelele or something. and these people are apparently serious about their buffett-love. i googled how to spell “margaritaville” and i’ll be danged if these parrothead people don’t have chat rooms and message boards and shrines to the buffett all over the place! for the record, i have been to margaritaville in panama city beach and it was a fun time. so maybe these parrotheads are onto something. regardless, dude seems like he’s having fun, so you go jimmy!

people who have garages but park their cars outside anyway. and then complain about having to defrost their vehicle or clean off the bird crap. i suppose they are using their 2 car garage for “storage” but i don’t get why a box of tire irons or your grandma’s deep freezer needs a roof over them while your gazillion dollar lexus sits outside in the weather. but sok. to each her own.

why i blog about this stuff. oh yeah, boredom.

peace.

laundry, uninterrupted

16 Feb

Mom went back home this morning. This fact, coupled with the craptastic day I had yesterday had me all kinds of grumpy this morning. But whatever. I need to get over myself sometimes.

Anyway, it was awesome to have mom here for a few days and Sam LOVED having Grandma around to play with and liven things up a bit. And of course, it was great to spend time with her and also get a wee break from kiddo for a bit. I got mass amounts of laundry done, was able to get ready for work in peace and even managed a date night with The Accountant.

And now, it’s back to normalcy for a bit I suppose. Whoop whoop.

regarding the weekend

14 Feb

Valentine’s Day. Lovely flowers from The Accountant and some time away from the house thanks to my mom. Date night consisted of going to Staples for toner, the bookstore for Sam’s Valentine, a sports bar for the end of the Vandy/KY game and Kroger for various foodage. Yeah, those were random destinations but it was one of our better date nights. I don’t know what I was thinking but I gave hubs a couple of vegetarian cookbooks for the big celebration of lurve…why I did this I have no idea because now I kinda have to cook something out of them… Sometimes I just don’t think before I do.

Kiddo has had a blast with grandma this weekend. She’s finally at the age where she recognizes her grandparents and interacts well with them. It’s totally cute and lovely to see. Not just lovely either, quite hilarious too. You should have seen grandma and Sam dancing to The Wiggles together tonight. Ohmagoodness. Sidenote: I think my kid inherited my lack of rhythm. She dances just like Frankenstein. Poor child.

Mom and I went to see the Nashville Ballet’s performance of American Originals today. It was quite excellent but I have to be honest. For me, ballet is best enjoyed in small doses. Or when I’m having an attack of insomnia. I always always always nod off. I think its a combination of a dark theater, cushy seats, the music and the graceful soothing movements of the dancers. I mean, those kids can really bust a move! No Frankenstein dancing there! I still have Gershwin’s I’ve Got Rhythm on repeat in my head. I do love that tune.

A few totally random things:

I may or may not have driven the wrong way down a one way street downtown today. Ahem. But all’s well that ends well right? Yes.

If things go as planned there will be some major changes in my life career-wise in the next few months. I’m a bit extremely anxious about it and am just praying that things work out. And that’s all I’ll say until its more concrete for fear of jinxing things. Just know that if I’m spastic and weird that it’s probably the job thing. Oh heck, what am I saying? If I’m spastic and weird its just because I’m me. Deal.

And now it is bedtime. Ciao. Peace and love. Adios. Seeya.

random things from last weekend

12 Feb

Bookclub. We read “The Power of Positive Thinking”. Normally, I’m anti froo froo books like that but I pulled some good things out of it. Bottom line, I need an attitude adjustment. Tough love and all of that. Next up we read The Secret Life of Bees. Looking forward to it. May check out the movie too.

MonkeyJoe’s. Donita and I took our little munchkin’s to one of those places with all the inflatables. Sam was a bit freaked out at first (well, heck, so was mommy), but then she really got into it and didn’t want to leave. Very cute. We’ll do this again for sure. And I like that I got to play too, under the guise of helping my little one.

Preds game. My “little” brother and his fiance came up for the Preds game after the blizzard of 2010 thwarted our attempt the prior weekend. Preds lost but it was a super fun time anyway and great to see them!

And then of course, there was the SuperBowl. Hooray Saints!

The End.

kid videos to fill the space

10 Feb

So once again I find myself behind. I had the best of intentions of posting about my super good weekend and yet, do you see a post like that? No. And it’s not gonna happen now either because the pics that go along with the post are elsewhere. So, again I say, “I’ll do that later”.

But for now, here are a couple of videos of Sam. Both at the doctor’s office. Doing what you do in a doctor’s office…waiting for the doctor. And trying to keep yourself and your toddler entertained.

Enjoy! Oh, I’m off to see John Mayer tonight…Don’t wait up.

Fidgety Gidget…

The Coat Trick…
