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.... Continue Reading →
vacation = less posting.
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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →

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