The ADD is strong with this one

I cannot sit still today y’all. Cannot focus. Cannot stand the confines of this cubicle. I am fidgety. Whew. I’m making lists and thinking of things I need and want to do and getting not much of anything done in this whole chaotic process that’s swirling in my head. I will look into mind-quieting meditation… Sometimes I wonder if a set daily routine would help … Continue reading The ADD is strong with this one

morning ride and the state of my brain

I thought since last night’s walk was so pain free and relatively easy that this morning’s bike ride would be the same. Um, no. Apparently my legs are still in rebellion mode because those 6 miles were more than a bit lackluster. There is one TINY hill on this route and I was struggling to get up it. But it still felt good to be … Continue reading morning ride and the state of my brain

where did i go?

This morning I heard myself yell up the stairs to kiddo as she skittered away from me to avoid putting on her socks like I’d told her to multiple times. “You are fixin’ to get a time out young lady!!!!” Yes, I said “fixin” just like that, without the g, and I added in a stern “YOUNG LADY” for shock value. I cringed inside as … Continue reading where did i go?

grumpy mcgrumperson

I am not a fan of small talk nor am I very good at it. Post holiday small talk tops the list of all categories of dreaded chitty-chatty-for-no-reason banter. Hello person with me in the elevator who I don’t know but who I think works in accounting…”how was your Christmas” they ask me…I say “it was great, how was yours?” And we carry on. This … Continue reading grumpy mcgrumperson

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 here reading. Or maybe you’ve already clicked off and are … Continue reading aaaaaand here we are

why the long face?

This is me. Spreading sunshine everywhere I go. Yep yep. I mean, can’t you tell? Heh. The not-so-funny thing is, I really am a fun lively laughing joking person when I’m out from behind a desk. Can we say “you got off at the wrong stop lady”? Yes we can. Eh, anyway. Stuff ‘n things. Ummmmmm, I got nuthin’ I guess. Oh wait, here’s some stuff…the … Continue reading why the long face?

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 is why i do not care for grammar. if whoever … Continue reading ok

it’s 7:27 pm

So early and yet, I’m already contemplating bed. Doubtful I’ll go but I am contemplating anyway. Someone is rapid firing some type of firearm somewhere in the vicinity. Nice. I don’t get it. I want to teach English in another country. Always thought that would be cool. You can blame a Lonely Planet tweet on putting that idea in my head tonight. They even tell me … Continue reading it’s 7:27 pm

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 me, being my restless, unpacified self. Oh, here’s something random … Continue reading and here we are

fee foo fah

Yep, just made that title up. Straight from my brilliance. Be jealous. I am kind of digging this article…They’re On Their Own. My parents didn’t pay for my college. I had scholarships, loans and a job. I graduated. It worked out. Sort of. I’m not saying this is what The Accountant and I will do (especially since Mr. Mad Planner has already got a college savings account set … Continue reading fee foo fah

well haaaiiiiii bloggy blog o’ blogginess!

So I know I’ve only been away a few short days, but I’ve missed my lil’ space here on the internets. Been busy with…well, honestly, I don’t even know. Nothing specific, just life stuff I guess. “Life Stuff”…that is such an indistinct term isn’t it? Anywho. Let’s see, here’s some highlights from the past few days… Had a “me day” last week. This entails taking Sam … Continue reading well haaaiiiiii bloggy blog o’ blogginess!

there are no capital letters in this post

i’m wearing what i call a “gramma sexy” shirt today. sexy without a jacket over it ’cause it’s got a keyhole back, high neck and sleeveless. but with the required corporate world jacket on over it, it looks kinda “gramma-ee”. but in a sexy gramma way if you know what i mean. its monday and i had to come to work. i know you all … Continue reading there are no capital letters in this post
