I’ve been charged to pen a post about something that makes me happy. I could have chosen many things, family-friends-kiddo-books-fresh flowers-chocolate…but honestly, the first thing that came to mind was traveling. A lot. Everywhere. New places new people new everything. Favorite destination #1? the Rick Steves tour we took of Europe in 2006. Several countries, never staying in the same one over two days. It was a whirlwind. And … Continue reading happiness is…
In an exam room at my doctor’s office that is. They got me into a room without the usual one hour wait so that was nice. Of course, the doc might not get in here for another week or so. Scratch that. He’ll be here soon I’m sure. I’m trying to think more positively lately. Really. Not so brief recap of why I’m here…took Cooper … Continue reading here i sit
Here’s a very blurry dark video of kiddo. I’m in pain tonight so no lengthy post. More on that later. I think I’m pushing the legal limit on ibprofen consumption. ‘Night. Continue reading quick video
i’m not sure why i post stuff like the one below other than to fill time. i just want to type something i guess. i mean, do you really need or want to know about my sleep issues? um, no, i didn’t think so. anywho, i’m killing time on my lunch hour (yeah, i should be doing something productive but my brain is mush). so … Continue reading high my sigh why
Ohmagoodness. So tired today. For whatever reason, Sam was up three times last night. There’s a difference in tone that only mommies can hear between when she is crying out in her sleep and will drift back off to dreamland and the cry she makes when I know she’s awake and won’t go back to sleep until I go in her room and figure out … Continue reading kiddo = no sleepytime last night
I have been trying to find this poem for AGES!! I remember it from a college lit class and it stuck in my head all these years, popping up every now and then for whatever reason. But all I could remember was that it was about a cleaning lady finding a frog in the toilet. I remember thinking it was funny and that I liked … Continue reading weird things that stick in my brain
This is me. Spreading sunshine everywhere I go. Yep yep. I mean, can’t you tell? Heh. The not-so-funny thing is, I really am a fun lively laughing joking person when I’m out from behind a desk. Can we say “you got off at the wrong stop lady”? Yes we can. Eh, anyway. Stuff ‘n things. Ummmmmm, I got nuthin’ I guess. Oh wait, here’s some stuff…the … Continue reading why the long face?
I don’t have much to say really. But I’ve learned that when I start out a post that way, it usually turns into a lot of babbling. So we’re just gonna go with it. I had lunch with one of my very good friends today who I haven’t seen in ages. Sad really. Its just that jobs and kids and life in general have gotten … Continue reading hello world
I’ve never been able to post from my phone but am hoping the app upgrade might have fixed that? ‘Cause that would be nifty neato. Continue reading mobile blogging – test
paci and all. Continue reading rock star
I love Dilbert for its sarcasm, cynicism and lack of Mary Sunshine-ness about life in the office. Go figure right? Continue reading this pretty much sums it up
Every day my kiddo does something new and hilarious. To me anyway. Its almost surreal, this little person in my house. She’s going to be a fun quirky kid I think. Last night she walked back and forth between The Accountant and me, giving us each kisses like it was going out of style. Seriously adorable. She sticks that little face up at you and … Continue reading you’d tell me if i had a bratty kid, right?
Ms. Dani did a post about her guilty pleasures and I thought it was nifty so I’m totally stealing it. So here are some of my guilty pleasures…the ones I’ll admit to anyway. What? I can’t divulge everything people. Pop Tarts. Its not a secret that I must have a low-fat brown sugar cinnamon poptart and a diet coke to start my day. If I happen … Continue reading guilty pleasures
It’s one of those nights where I should go to bed (stupid time change) but don’t. I just sit on my bed alternating between staring at the tv and the computer screen. And I just typed up a rather dreary post and backspaced it away. It’s that whole Sunday-night-dreading-Monday-morning thing I got going. Look up apathetic and burned out – that’s me. It sucks to feel hopeless and … Continue reading staring
I just went to the clinic for this yucky sinus stuff and yes, I have a sinus infection. I’m now armed with amoxicillin and instructions to go get mucinex and a neti pot or some sort of nasal irrigation/contraption/torture device. I’m good with the drugs, but the “take this thing that looks like a genie could pop out of it at any second and use it to pour liquid up … Continue reading i fear the neti pot
today was rather craptastic and disappointing i must say. i finished my wonderful book club book last night and had grand plans to go to the gym in the morning, go to bookclub, then playdate for kiddos with friends, then lunch with same friends. none of this happened. i woke up and felt awful in various ways. i think i have a sinus infection and that … Continue reading so sew so sew
I’d somehow forgotten how much I love to read. I’ve started but not finished several books over the past few months. I am totally the slacker of our monthly bookclub. Until tonight. Just finished The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. I laughed a lot. Those weird annoying snorts that people let out when they’re immersed in humorous words and cause whoever happens to be in the room to look … Continue reading a good book. its been a while.
sounds like an indy movie title to me. i’m still sick but what ya gonna do? its friday. i’m off work, sam is at daycare and i have a list to get through at home. finishing the painting in my bathroom is the main thing. touching up in the accountant’s bathroom, cleaning out my closet (or at least getting a good start on that). so … Continue reading sick girl painting
on days when i want to thumb my nose at The Man, i make sure and wear a shirt that’s cut low enough in the back so that my tattoo shows. only because this is in clear violation of the dress code and i can be a passive aggressive bish queen when i want to be. and you know that i always turn my back … Continue reading fulooca pooca bahooka
I came home early today as I felt like utter crap on a biscuit. I have another cold/sinus/epezooty/something or other thing. Not that I mind leaving work early as you all should know by now. I love the silence of my house when there’s no one here but me and the pets. One day I swear I am going to indulge my little hotel-weekend-alone fantasy. … Continue reading not exactly rockin’ it out
Heh. Sometimes I’ll go back and read through old entries in my journal. Various reactions follow including mass amounts of cringing, eye rolling, “good grief”s, face reddening, scrunching up of the nose or squinting of the eyes, and sometimes a smile or smirk. Here are some of the more tame, short exerpts from my journal, minus the context, that made me do one or more of those things. … Continue reading dear diary, you crack me up
Sometimes I think the Universe is playing a sick joke on me. Either that, or there’s been an epic mistake. That I wasn’t meant to be this person, with this life. That somehow, there’s been a terrible mix-up and I’m someone else who is trapped in this body, this place in time, at this spot on the map. I don’t know that I was meant to be … Continue reading me again, being all deep & stuff
Life is messed up. Generally speaking. Things don’t make sense, get all crazy, aren’t logical and sure as hell aren’t black and white. Sometimes I think I will never figure things out. Never figure out what I’m supposed to be doing here, what I want to do here. I envy those people who know what they want and just go do it without overthinking things. Or … Continue reading well here we are but where is that?
