2016 so far

...has already had quite a few ups and downs. The Ups My dad's store moved to a new location and it is pretty amazing. Nicer and newer with better parking and facilities. It's been a stressful time for him but I think things are finally settling down and falling into place. Hubs had some big/positive... 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 →

summer storms

Kiddo is breathing heavy beside me, borderline snoring through the thunder and lightning. I love storms. At least those of the non-threatening, not gonna blow your house away kind. The snoring blond bundle turns six years old tomorrow. I'm not going to say the usual "I can't believe how big she's getting", or "She's growing... Continue Reading →

fresh

I'm not digging this template but I feel like I want a new start on this blogging thing. I want to write more so it's completely in character for me to procrastinate on actually writing by making my writing space different and pretty. Or at least different. I'm going to have to keep playing with... Continue Reading →

sunburn and a pogo stick

Today was rad. I took kiddo to the zoo for a date with her bestie and her mom, and then to her friend's house for lunch and playtime. My friend Phil, grilled for us and then there was tree climbing, hide and go seeking, Disney soundtracking, doughnut eating, rope swinging, bike riding, hula hooping, and... Continue Reading →

mish mash

Whew, it's only Saturday afternoon and this weekend has exhausted me already. In all good ways though. On the job search front...I applied for what looks like an amazing position and got a very positive response the next afternoon. The HR representative said they were interested in talking to me about it and she sent... Continue Reading →

Long morning ride

I got 21 miles in this morning on Trekster. It felt amazing. Perfect weather, perfect scenery. The only thing that wasn't perfect was my sore tailbone but that's a small price to pay for cheap therapy. Speaking of therapy (am I awesome at segues or what?), mine went well the other day. I'm feeling better... 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 →

party central

Today...kiddo's wild birthday party with some of her friends at "the bounce house place", as we call it. Whew. It was a hit but, whew. Kid was SO stinkin' excited. This is a really fun, if exhausting, age. Her actual birthday isn't until Wednesday so I guess we'll just consider this her birthday week since... Continue Reading →

all the saris

The Hindu wedding we attended this past weekend was pretty fabulous. The bride was Hindu; the groom Jewish. The word "beautiful" keeps coming to mind. I'd driven past the temple ever since I moved here years ago and it always looked lovely and intricate and fascinating. And I'm a curious bird when it comes to... Continue Reading →

Pittsburgh

This one time...in Pittsburgh...I went to visit my friend Nora and we took boat tours and ducky tours and ate fondue and went up an incline and ate lots of snacks and went to the drive-in and played with her cool pet birdy and I went mountain climbing running with her tricky husband... I lurves... Continue Reading →

roadtrippin’

I'm super lucky to have some fabulous friends. This weekend I drove to Cincinnati to meet Nora for a mini weekend getaway. We got a room close to the University and vegged out and had girly time. We ate a lot of junk and laughed a ton. Sometimes a girl's just gotta get away. And... Continue Reading →

So, this happened last weekend...My first 1/2 marathon! Successfully completed with great friends. I really can't believe how much fun I had with these girls and am so lucky to be able to share this accomplishment with them. We walked it and ran a bit here and there and finished ahead of our projected goal.... Continue Reading →

paranoia and good things

I am the champion of all things paranoid. Or something like that. Life is really good right now and I sometimes feel like I'm teetering on a tower of blessings and good things that will sooner or later, topple to the ground when something bad happens to disturb it. And I wonder if I'm jinxing... Continue Reading →

snippets

What are those nuts called that are shaped like kidneys? I like those. And peanuts. Peanuts are my favorite. Almonds I will tolerate but they don't really do it for me. I just ate this and it was good. I had a turkey sandwich, baked Lays and an apple for lunch. Exciting noms no? Stuff... Continue Reading →

the day

Today was nice. We had our first parent-teacher conference ever. Who knew they do those for day care? Turns out, my kid is smart, sweet and socially adept. As if I didn't already know that but its nice to hear it confirmed by an outside party. Then I picked up The Mayor and we headed... Continue Reading →

I can’t make this stuff up

So now I have food poisoning or some sort of bacteria infection according to the doctor's best guess. The night of The Stress Fracture Debacle I did the head in the toilet thing for a bit. I thought I had just stressed myself to the point of illness but then other things began to occur... Continue Reading →

stupid sneaky emotions

My best friend in high school was and still is the exact opposite of me. She's a cowgirl, I've always been a city girl wannabe. Oh, wait, I've written about this before so hang on while I go find that post...Ah-ha, here it is...Go read this first. I'll wait. I hadn't seen her in over... Continue Reading →

various goings on

*this was in my drafts so the timing is off, but whatever..i'm posting it anyway. So, this blog is on FIAH lately huh? I don't know why but I'm just in the mood to typie typie typie these days. About mundane and random things that no one cares about but me, no doubt, but that's... 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 →
