not exactly what I had in mind

My Facebook status from this morning… Kiddo scrunches her nose up and says “ewwww” as we smell a skunk on the way to daycamp this morning. Then she says, “Ohhh mommy, I know what you can do for your new job! You can be a polecat catcher!”. New job title…Finn, Certified Polecat Catcher. For all your polecat catching needs…Business cards coming soon. That kid, always … Continue reading not exactly what I had in mind

Whew, it’s only Saturday afternoon and this weekend has exhausted me already. In all good ways though. On the job search front…I applied for what looks like an amazing position and got a very positive response the next afternoon. The HR representative said they were interested in talking to me about it and she sent me an official application to fill out and asked for … Continue reading mish mash

I was looking at vintage Valentines this morning because free time, and this one cracked me up. So I’m sharing it with you. I have chocolates and cards waiting for kiddo and hubs. Plus, the little one is getting a teddy bear and a new battery powered toothbrush and bubblegum toothpaste. Little Mermaid style, thank you very much. Oh, and I’m making cuban black beans … Continue reading hearty har har

I really do have the most awesome kid. I was teary most of yesterday afternoon. I hate crying in front of kiddo because I don’t want her to be worried about anything. But yesterday I couldn’t help it. I just told her that I’d had a bad day. She gave me hugs and patted and stroked my arm like I do to her when she … Continue reading Love Mommy

weather is stupid, sickly kid, weekend highlights, drugs are bad

Mother Nature can for real bite me. Kiddo’s school opens two hours late tomorrow but it wouldn’t surprise me if they cancel it altogether before morning. It is raining out there after all. I always roll my eyes at people yakking on and on about the weather but when you were just in short sleeves 24 hours ago and now school is out because of … Continue reading weather is stupid, sickly kid, weekend highlights, drugs are bad

Soup’s on!

Vegetable soup happened today. I was all systematic and stuff (which is NOT like me) and had my grocery list organized by aisle thanks to our store’s mobile app. I got home and threw all the ingredients in the crock pot and went about my day. Sidenote: my crock pot was a wedding gift so it is a smidgen less than 15 years old. It … Continue reading Soup’s on!

Heeeeeey February

I’m looking forward to warmer weather tomorrow and spending some time outside. My philosophical observation of the day is how the passing of time gives you a more realistic perspective on certain things and confirms right (or wrong) decisions. This is a good thing. I am making vegetable soup in the crock pot tomorrow, er, today. It’s gonna smell good all day and taste delicious … Continue reading Heeeeeey February
