various thoughts at 3 am

Emotional rollercoaster today. It's not something I can explain here. Its just...all the things. Bleh. Life is weird. As mentioned in the title, it's an ungodly hour and momma is up pacing, nervous as a cat. #1stdayofkindgergarten Last day of daycare today for kiddo. Teary pickup. Last long commute home with her. Not so teary,... 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 →

reframing the day*

Very rough morning today. I was already on edge from some other things going on. On edge, as in I lay in bed for 45 minutes willing some sort of rip in the fabric of the universe to happen so that I wouldn't have to get up. On edge, as in I didn't shower this morning... Continue Reading →

misc.

I think my head might burst open. I have a killer headache. Oy. Hubs and a coworker had an "incident" on the interstate today. A car swerved to dodge a semitruck tire that was in the road and the tire flew up and hit his car. I haven't seen it yet but apparently the car is busted... Continue Reading →

hola

Hi ya'll. Sometimes I think I really should blog something or other and then I'll just be like "nah". I know some people read this to keep up with my exciting life that I don't otherwise talk to very often so I somehow feel like I'm holding out on them if I don't post about... Continue Reading →

Sam 4 month stats

Sam had her 4 month check up and shots today. The shots were ooky.  She cried, I cried. It was a sob fest in exam room # 2. She got over the tears quickly though and has been a real trooper tonight. She's sporting some very cool Tazmanian Devil bandaids right now. I gave her some infant Tylenol... Continue Reading →

time is screwed up

Do you know why time is screwed up?  Me neither, but the reason that I know it is - because the days are way too long and drag on forever but the evenings are entirely too short and fly by with a whoosh and a 'see ya later'.  The batteries are dead in the universal clock and or the spacetime...

grumble grumble

I'm bummed tonight.  By the time I got home from work, Sam was already in her crib asleep.  I kept thinking she'd wake up any minute but it's almost 9:30 pm and she's still sleeping.  It's all I can do not to go in her room and "accidentally" cough really loud so she'll wake up...

and so it goes

Not really much to write about lately that you haven't heard before.  My latest baby adventure involved the rice cereal/formula mixture (doctor's orders, not my idea) not coming out of the bottle nipple and a mad dash to Target to buy formula and bottles and mixing them in the parking lot.  Meanwhile my baby girl...

unpredictable mornings

So today the plan was to get up at 5:40, get ready, feed Sami, get her ready, pack her bag, prepare her bottles and get to daycare by 7:40ish.  Just to see if it could be done and what traffic is like at that time of morning.  (Never mind that it's some sort of holiday... Continue Reading →

Sami update

Yes, this will be a post all about baby.  So move along if that's not your thing. We are doing well in the Finn household.  We seem to have somewhat of a routine down which has greatly helped the sleeping schedules of all involved.  Sami is now sleeping in her crib at night!  Can I...
