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... Continue Reading →
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.... Continue Reading →
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.
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... Continue Reading →
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...

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.... Continue Reading →
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,... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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.
I love Dilbert for its sarcasm, cynicism and lack of Mary Sunshine-ness about life in the office. Go figure right?
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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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...

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... Continue Reading →
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...

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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
