books and movies and a post

Sup internet? I'm finally feeling better and minus a kinda gross cough, am back to normal. And officially on Christmas vacation for a couple of weeks, so that's a nice feeling. It will be busy, as this time of year always is but I always feel like its a good time to reset myself in... Continue Reading →

miscellany

Sick. I really wish someone would bring me some warm gooey chocolate chip cookies today. I'm home sick with a fever, cough, etc etc and I say screw the chicken noodle soup, cookies are where its at. Anyway, mutter mutter growl. At least I should be over it in plenty of time to enjoy the... Continue Reading →

books. poetry.

I'm reading the best book. Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler. The Jazz Age, F. Scott, New York City, great writing...what's not to love? I think I'm going to give The Paris Wife a go next.I gave up on Winter's Tale because it was boring me to death. I know many people who... Continue Reading →

1/30/14

Kiddo's sleepover last weekend was a success and hubs and I were able to enjoy a quiet evening at home. In preparation for our night in, we had planned to enjoy a Mexican feast of homemade nachos with all the fixin's. A mistake was made in sending me to the store hungry and the cashier...

stuff ‘n thangs

I'm over the holidays and Christmas "vacation". I'm ready to go back to work. And now there is the threat of Snowmaggedon on Sunday night so there's more than a snowball's chance in hell that Monday will be a snow day and I will go crazy. I'm overly dramatic, I realize. Its been awesome to... Continue Reading →

Hiya August

I'm not going to say "time flies" because I hate it when people say that. It doesn't fly, it passes at a constant rate. Its your perception of events within that time that make it seem to "fly". But whatever. So, August 1. Like most other days, although made much nicer by lunch at a... Continue Reading →

reset

Its like a cloud that descends. Sometimes not all the way, sometimes just partially but enough to skew my head into emo-ness and melancholy. And then it may clear just as quickly as it came, like today. I feel better now. I'm not sure what happened or why but I just do. A kind email... Continue Reading →

important announcement

I finally finished the Steve Jobs biography! I deserve a medal for sure. It only took me a year. No joke. Good book but very tedious for me to get through. It became one of those I'm going to finish this or die trying kind of things. I'm usually not one who has to finish... Continue Reading →

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 →

mindfulness + llama = award segue

I find myself neglecting to stop and appreciate the little things sometimes. I believe in Buddhism its called Mindfulness. And really, not just the little things, big things too. Practicing mindfulness has been on my mind for a while, (hahaha, a little Buddha humor there, oh stop it, I'll be here all night) and its... Continue Reading →

let’s keep it up shall we?

Meaning posting here with meaningless drivel to fill space. Nothing wrong with that I say. Last night's sleep wasn't much better than before. Except that I did fall asleep early on The Accountant's side of the bed. I was wearing that sexy garment known as the Snuggie and wow, that thing is so snuggly and... Continue Reading →

quick check in

we had a nice day off together today. kiddo was super excited to go to school. she is loving her new room and teachers and is adjusting great. i am constantly amazed by her. her new favorite song is "boom boom, ain't it great to be crazy". it is so funny to hear her sing along with...

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 →

a good book. its been a while.

I'd somehow forgotten how much I love to read. I've started but not finished several books over the past few months. I am totally the slacker of our monthly bookclub. Until tonight. Just finished The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. I laughed a lot. Those weird annoying snorts that people let out when they're immersed in humorous... Continue Reading →

yep yep

Bookclub was great this morning. I took Sam with me so The Accountant could sleep in and she did great. I came prepared with a bag full of toys and cheerios; the wrapping paper and boxes from our Dirty Santa festivities also helped entertain. We had read John Grisham's Skipping Christmas as our December selection. A... Continue Reading →

how i feel

today i feel random, tired, bummed, a bit depressed, a bit hopeless, wistful and cranky...all that with a little snarky thrown in. don't you wanna hang out with me? i went to the downtown library today on a whim. was going to get a library card as it's been a couple of years since i've had...

and here we are

So here I am, hiding out from my day job in a random-to-you coffee shop trying to think of something interesting to post.  And the words just don't come. Nothing is in my brain suitable for this screen. I've  been in a weird place lately. Well, maybe no weirder than I usually am. I guess it's just... Continue Reading →

a swell saturday

People don't use the word "swell" nearly enough these days do they? I'm sitting here on the bed surrounded by laundry that is begging to be folded but that will instead probably be transferred to another location later, and I'm just kind of blank. I just deleted several draft posts I had saved. I seem... Continue Reading →

books ‘n books ‘n books

While looking through all the blog templates on WordPress and fidgeting with the format I noticed that I have a tiny little section called "Currently Reading" that I haven't updated in oh, at least a year.  Mainly because for the past year or so I've been reading several pregnancy/childbirth/parenting books all at the same time and didn't...
