well haaaiiiiii bloggy blog o’ blogginess!

12 Oct

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 to daycare and coming back home or doing whatever I want. Last week it was coming back home and going back to bed for four glorious heavenly hours.

Had a lovely visit/dinner with Grandma T. Sam lurves her some Grandma T let me tell you! They crawled around on the floor and acted all kinds of goofy together. So cute. She really should come around more often. So sez I.

Hubs and I recruited a fabulous friend to stay with Sam while we went to the Titans/Colts game. We all know how that went. The game I mean. But it was just good to get out of the house, just the two of us. Along with however-many-thousands-of-people fit into LP Field. Eh, you know what I mean. We left at halftime anyway and had a late dinner downtown. Nice.

Hmmmmm….I feel like I have neglected to relay some major event in the life of Finn and Family but you don’t really care what I ate for supper the other night anyway do ya? Besides, I am drawing a blank so you will just have to suffer the not knowing.

It’s Monday. I go see LENNY Kravitz with ma girls in two weeks!!! I have no idea why I always capitalize his first name but I just do. Deal.

Do you ever just have something completely stupid pop into your head? Of course you don’t, but I do. All.The.Time. Here’s one from this morning’s drive in. Isn’t it totally counterintuitive* to buy and plant wildflower seeds, with the intention of these seeds growing into “wildflowers”? And if you do that, do the resulting flowers cease to be WILDflowers? I mean, given that you fiddle-farted around with nature and planted them on purpose and all? They can’t be “wild” then can they? Am I the only person who wonders about these things? Hello????

*did i spell and/or use that word correctly? i have been dying to say that word all day. shut up. you know you love me.

i hate football & other stuff

Just kidding. I really love it but what’s the deal Titans? Sigh. I mean, I know we can’t win ’em all but just give me ONE! And how about we make that one the Colts game next weekend? ‘Cause I’ll be at LP Field cheering you on against Peyton. Woot. So regardless of the debacle that is this week’s game, I still have hope. Really.

This weekend has been madness. In a good way for the most part. Sam and I hit the road and headed west to mom and dad’s for an overnight visit. It went well overall. Sam is doing a little bit better riding in her new carseat but she gets tired of sitting in it after a while and just wants out. I don’t blame her. We got to spend quality time with my lil’ bro and sis-in-law-to-be. Sam took right up with SIL and loved making faces at her. Silly girls. Sleeping was, eh, difficult, but we made it through the night with only one waking episode by Sam and 3 or 4 by mommy. Heh. Made a quick visit to great-gramma and then a Chinese take-out pic-a-nic at Dad’s store. Wonderful time but glad to get home.

Today was church. Haha. This is turning into a joke actually. I think God might be looking down and laughing at me on Sunday mornings. But more about that later. Maybe.

For now I think it’s time to get off my butt and go for a run. It’s been too long. And this football game is making me irritable.

both icky and nice

Today has been equal parts icky and nice.

The icky parts first…
-We are passing a cold around and it’s my turn to be It. I feel like poo with the typical snottiness, stuffiness, coughiness, achiness, etc. The Accountant is feeling better finally and Sam seems to have dodged the worst of it so I’m thankful for those things. 
-The Titans didn’t bother to show up today and were shut out.
-Tomorrow is Monday so there’s also that. But I won’t be making an appearance at ye olde office if I still feel like this.

The nice part…
-We managed to get the Christmas tree disassembled and packed away yesterday so the house is back to normal for the most part. I’m not one to leave holiday decor up till New Years.
-Sam is being extra sweet today and we took a nice snooze together while Hubs went to work and during the debacle what was the Titans game.
-I just ate a super delicious bowl of leftover chili. A good bowl of chili is good for the soul I always say.

Going to blow my nose.

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 I can be with her. 

I’m really trying not to complain about having to work, especially when there are people out there who are hurting financially but dang if I can help it.  The state of the economy can bite my big butt.  People told me this would get easier.  That it would get easier to leave my baby at day care, easier to go to work every day.  Liars.  So far it’s only getting worse for me mentally.  I dilly dally around the house some days and once I get to day care I’m in no hurry to hand Sam over to the caregivers.  I’m resentful at having to sit at my desk and crank out spreadsheet after ever-lovin’ spreadsheet.  I’m mad that my kid is spending her days with people I barely know while I stare at a computer screen all freaking day to pay for insurance.  I’m angry and apathetic at the same time.

Bleh.  The more I type this, the madder I’m getting so I’m going to stop before I say all three of the cuss words I know.  Heh.

Before I sign off, I should mention the lovely weekend we had watching the Titans!  Grandma T came over to watch the game with us.  Although we know the reason she really came over wasn’t to see us, it was to play with Sam.  🙂  She brought baby girl the cutest Titans onesies, some clothes, books and a beautiful sweater that her mom made for Sam.  Oh, and some yummy pumpkin bread!  Check out the cute pictures she took.  This is “Happy Sam” and “Sad Sam”, both taken within one minute of each other.  I think she’s gonna be like her momma, smiling one minute and crying the next.  Poor thing.


ahem, 9-0

Today has been busy.  Up early for me on a Saturday to clean the house and get Sami ready for her big photoshoot.  Heh.  We had a photographer come take some shots of baby girl.  Sam did great for about an hour and then she had something of a meltdown and just wanted to go to sleep.  Hopefully the photographer got some good shots even though we had to quit earlier than I’d hoped. 

It was football for the rest of the day and I’m just now recovering from the LSU/Alabama game, even though I’m not really a big fan of either. 

Meh.  That’s about all I got people.  Come back tomorrow and hopefully you’ll see a Titans victory post!
