Since You’ve Been Gone

I can breathe for the first time...Just kidding. After about a year's absence I kinda just have to start over here. Here are the major highlights: I started a new job! 🙂 Our dog died. 😦 I restarted and then quit grad school. Again. 😦 I've gained about 20 pounds. 😦 One out of four... Continue Reading →

minestrone soup

I'm trying this recipe today. I chopped up the ingredients last night and so it was a quick throw into the crock pot this morning. Hopefully our dinner will be tasty and veggie filled. Minestrone Soup UPDATE: Delicious! And colorful. Because that's important.

Omelet you know…

...that I made a very ugly and somewhat overcooked, but very tasty breakfast for myself this morning! And because I'm nice and like to share, omelet you see it. Somebody stop me. Recipe from Cooking Light Omelet with turmeric, tomato, and onions

Soup’s on!

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 →

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...

food is not my friend

So this eating thing is not going so well. Since Friday night (that's approximately 4 and a half days ago) I have had one can of Chicken Noodle Soup, a handful of pretzels and saltines, part of a frozen Smart Ones, and a portion of a Zaxby's combo meal. That is it. I am living... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

Monday Funday

Not really but it sorta rhymed. Here's some random stuff. I went to bed semi-early last night. Because I'm old and tired and love sleeping almost as much as chocolate. Almost. Now if I could eat chocolate WHILE sleeping, then I'd really have something. I'm having an extraordinarily bad hair day. I'm trying to grow... Continue Reading →

the latest

I'm more like Melancholy Melanie today rather than Crankypants McGhee. Progress people, it's a slow thing sometimes. Memorial Day weekend turned out nice. I won't recap the details but here's a list of sorts...family walk on greenway, family cookout and subsequent soccer playing, trip to the zoo, puppet making and puppet show, gym, toy mini...

Tis Thursday

I think I just cracked my jaw trying to bite into a Granny Smith apple. Ouch. Tomorrow I will attempt to make a spider costume by hand. This will go either very well or quite badly. Good thing we have a leftover pirate outfit and a fairy princess dress in the closet for potential backup... Continue Reading →

running towards something

So, I've been doing this running thing since about mid-May of this year. I've done this before, starting running (well, walking first until I could jog without dying) and kept at it for a bit and then something or other distracted me or I got discouraged and gave up. But here I am three and... Continue Reading →

sitting here

I'm sitting at my desk, earbuds in, drowning myself in whatever Pandora Radio deems fitting. Its gray out today (I can tell this if I lean forward in my chair just so and peek out the window of the office across the hall) and that suits my mellow mood. I'm feeling a bit teary. I'm guessing... Continue Reading →

quick check in

mah brain iz mushy goo

how come i'm the only one here who is taking advantage of the 'we can wear jeans in the summer' dresscode? i walk around looking like a bum and all the other office slaves are all snazzified. eh, bet i'm more comfy anyway. i try to be a girly girl but sometimes, i'm just not.... Continue Reading →
