you know that feeling when you know you should go to bed because its really late but you don't want to because your mind is whirling and you can't shut your brain off, plus you're not really sleepy and are just in that dreamy state of mind where random bizarre thoughts pop into your head...

zombie brain

My "grey matter" as a former English teacher used to refer to our adolescent brains, has been completely mush the last couple of days. Maybe its too much Dora and not enough veggies or something, I dunno. I do the whole zoning out thing quite well but some days its way worse than others. I... Continue Reading →

go away crazy world

What is up? Mass craziness, that's what. Lets see...Fisher is out, Egypt has completely lost its mind and I can't get past Level 12 of Angry Birds. Some of my friends are going through tough times and I feel helpless. This week at work has been the most maddening yet and my potential new career seems to be... Continue Reading →

various and sundry

I always read that word in my head as "Sun Dry"...as in, "I let my wet shirt sun dry"...or something...ok, wait, actually I guess I would really say "I let my wet shirt dry in the sun" or "I let my wet shirt air dry" or "I threw that wet shirt in the dern dryer". Yeah,... Continue Reading →

limbo

yawning

I have the worst time coming up with post titles...so I just called this one what I happened to be doing at the moment. I have discovered that when I'm stressed or tense, I hold my breath. Not to the point of passing out or feeling lightheaded, but just enough to make my chest tighten... Continue Reading →

the flood

so, nashville, i love you. the last several days have been madness as you all know by now. no damage at our house. but so many others...there are just no words. besides the greater heartbreak of the stories of loss and death and unbelievable survival, how surreal was it to see nashville and it's landmarks...

aaaaaand here we are

Hi. I'm in one of those "I feel like talking/typing but I have nothing of value to say but am going to post anyway" kind of moods. Which usually ends up to be long rambling paragraphs about baby poop or the dream I had last night. But you don't mind or else you wouldn't be... Continue Reading →

tower pics

I just now turned my office calendar to April. Yes, that's me, always a few days behind the rest of the world. Anyway, it's a Paris, France calendar and this is the picture for April. This is a picture either me or hubs took on our trip there that I just found on my computer.... Continue Reading →

template stuff & a sam pic

I'm thinking of changing my template again. I'm very partial to the current one but...you guessed it...I'm bored, need a change...oh well, in the meantime, here's a picture of Sam being goofy. In this particular instance she would get into this position, then turn her head to look at me and say "poop", then resume... Continue Reading →

two very important things

1) I hate cheesy ringtones. To be more specific, I hate ringtones in general. This quirk of mine came to mind because some random person just walked in my office and his phone lets out an obnoxious and somehow techy-pervy "BOW-CHICA-BOW-BOW"...I mean, really? And there's nothing like doing your business in the ladies room when the chick's phone in... Continue Reading →

the vicks thing

Oh, so I've gotten several questions about what in the world was I doing, where did I hear of such a thing, you are a crazy person...regarding putting Vicks Vapor Rub on Sam's feet at night to help with the congestion/coughing. I read about it once on a mommy message board but never tried it... Continue Reading →

padoodiddyloo

don't go all nerdy on me or nuthin' and be googling "padoodiddyloo". i just made it up. i saw this quote today and snickered (people do not use the word "snicker" nearly enough do they? dang i need some chocolate now...) because it reminded me of myself...Henry S. Haskins said..."The time to stop talking is when...

just me…talking about stuff

First and most importantly, the earthquake in Haiti...horrible, tragic, unimaginable...things like this put my silly whining and craziness into severe perspective. You can donate at several places but two of my favs are the American Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders. Speaking of  things these tragedies put into perspective, I keep hearing all these rumblings... Continue Reading →

inky dinky rinky

10 things on a Wednesday

#1. I am not having a mid-life crisis, a quarter-life crisis, an end-of-life crisis, or ANY kind of crisis. Just so you know. So please stop freaking out. #2. I am off tomorrow and I am going to spend mass amounts of money (via a giftcard, don't panic you-know-who) on new workout gear. #3. I am... Continue Reading →

ok

why doesn't the name "wally" rhyme with "sally"? this occurred to me on the drive in this morning and will not go away from my brain. much like my question about why the last part of the word "arkansas" is not pronounced like the word "kansas", or vice versa. these things bug me. and this...
