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... Continue Reading →
I'm antsy tonight. And now I'm antsy with that Dora the Explorer song stuck in my head. Fabulous. Its not really a bad kind of antsy though. I'm just sort of in this weird space in my brain with the job thing and wondering where I'm going to end up and how the course of... Continue Reading →
Kiddo and I have been enjoying the springlike weather today. Playing baseball, hanging with the neighbor kids, and some time at the park. Here she is getting her dizzy on.
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... Continue Reading →
I cringe when I think about how much I have taken him for granted in the recent past. He loves me and kiddo to the ends of the earth and takes care of us like no one else ever could. I don't deserve him. We will celebrate 15 years of marriage this summer (in Paris... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
Yes, you read that right. This was not unexpected, given the state of our government funding situation and other circumstances, but as much as I have been preparing for this day in my brain, it is still somewhat of a shock and a huge mental adjustment now that it is a confirmed reality. Hubs has... Continue Reading →
Lunch with coworkers. Yum. Tried a new to me coffee shop, in which I had hot chocolate because I don't do coffee. Also yum. I have decided to make said coffee shop my new hangout. I had a sweet lunch with kiddo Friday. Am now able to spy on kiddo's behavior at school in semi... Continue Reading →
This picture is from several months ago but it's one of my absolute favorites. She's so silly. So is the kid.
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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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,... Continue Reading →
