So yeah, we’ve been on vacation for several days and are just now getting back into the routine of real life. Sort of. We had a great time at the beach (pictures forthcoming if I can ever get them all downloaded). Kiddo really made great process with her swimming and got braver with each day. She had a blast and couldn’t wait to get to … Continue reading mommy stuff
vacation = less posting. Continue reading checking in
Happy Mother’s Day to my sweet and spunky mom! When you see my mother, you’ll see a little sprite of a woman, probably rushing to class (although I have never personally witnessed this but am told it happens), reading a book, grading papers, drinking coffee, or writing something clever, witty and touching. But don’t let the small stature and intellectual nature fool you people. This … Continue reading My Mom….Rawkin’ My Socks Since 1975
Its after midnight and my poor kid is laying in a bed in a hotel room coughing her sweet lil’ head off. Of course, I can’t get her to take a drink of water and so the blessed silence continues juuuuuuust long enough to get a good doze on, and then COUGH COUGH COUGH SPUTTER SPUTTER HACK. I feel bad for her, for both of … Continue reading cough hack sputter
I want to write something here tonight for some weird reason, but I don’t know what. I can be so bizarre. Tonight was nice. I met up with some dear friends and met a couple of super cool ladies for dinner and bowling. I have not been bowling in years and I’d forgotten how much I like it. I’m really bad at it but its … Continue reading hmmmm.
I thought I was once a confident, secure, and driven person. What the hell happened to that girl? I thought as you got older that confidence and self assurance tended to strengthen. That regrets faded. That you became more comfortable in your own skin. That you stopped squirming internally because you don’t like what you see in the mirror and feel about yourself. I always … Continue reading backasswards
but it really did sound awful in my head so I didn’t say it out loud…but really…so true…for me anyway… Mother’s Day Is The One Day I Don’t Want To Be A Mother Continue reading i was just thinking this yesterday…
I have decided that the narrator’s voice on House Hunters International is hypnotizing/soothing and that she should be one of the options on my Relax and Sleep app. She’d be my first choice of sounds to fall asleep to, right after the chanting monks. Who should I contact about this? I’m in that pre-vacation fog that I get into a couple of weeks before we … Continue reading dot dot dot
I’ve been at the lowest low and the highest high today. So here’s an lolcat that made me snort. I think this guy is my snarky feline soul mate. Continue reading bizarre day
I’m up entirely too late but that seems to be my pattern lately. I fell asleep on kiddo’s floor for an hour or so earlier but it doesn’t feel like I got any snoozage at all. And, hello sore hips. Let’s see…what happened today besides the torturous beeping…which finally stopped by the way. I think there is some button you have to push on some … Continue reading my day. for lack of a better title.
There is an incessant beeping across the hall. It has been going for an hour now. I work in Hogwarts. I really do. There are all these mysterious labs with bizarre instruments and chemicals and fluids and god knows what all. Outside one door down the hall is a brick covered in aluminum foil that looks like its been there since the 80s. Why would … Continue reading beep beep beeeeeeeeeeeeeep
