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 things happen at his work that are in his/our favor. … Continue reading 2016 so far

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 holidays. Bright spot. Ugly. The news these days y’all. People … Continue reading miscellany

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 up so fast” because while those things are true, that’s … Continue reading summer storms

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 it. I should just suck it up and pay so … Continue reading fresh

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 me an official application to fill out and asked for … Continue reading mish mash

cue annie lenoxx broken glass song

Because I win at life lately, I just spilled a bunch of tea inside the refrigerator and on the floor. Even better, I dropped a glass and it shattered into a million shards of feet shredding danger bits all over the tile floor. I vacuumed but shoes would be a good idea in the kitchen until I can mop and re-vacuum tomorrow. Thought you should … Continue reading cue annie lenoxx broken glass song

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 her. Next time, Nora does Nashville! Continue reading Pittsburgh

friends, Jesus + the Burpee catalog, nerdwear, and Frances Ha

A friend and someone I admire very much told me the other day that she loves when I blog because it’s like “getting a hug over the internet”. I’m wondering if she may be reading a different blog because this one can get tedious sometimes. But really? Her comment may have made my day. Friends are kinda awesome. You should totally get some if you … Continue reading friends, Jesus + the Burpee catalog, nerdwear, and Frances Ha

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. I was pretty sore for a couple of days afterwards … 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 it by even writing this. See? Paranoid. I am enjoying … Continue reading paranoia and good things

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 is happenin’ around here. Tomorrow I’m moving into a new … Continue reading snippets

my day. for lack of a better title.

I’m up entirely too late but that seems to be my pattern lately. I fell asleep on kiddo’s floor for an hour or so earlier but it doesn’t feel like I got any snoozage at all. And, hello sore hips. Let’s see…what happened today besides the torturous beeping…which finally stopped by the way. I think there is some button you have to push on some … Continue reading my day. for lack of a better title.

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 to lunch and a viewing of The Hunger Games. A … Continue reading the day

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 (I will spare  you the details) and The Accountant really … Continue reading I can’t make this stuff up

cheapy bleepy i sure am sleepy, plus other stuff

It occurred to me that I need to update my blogroll as some of the ones on the list are defunct, moved, or just plain out of date. That will go on my to-do list. Right after “give the cat a bath”. Meaning, don’t hold your breath, I really should do it but am feeling lazy. What I also am is very freakin’ sleepy. Crazy cool … Continue reading cheapy bleepy i sure am sleepy, plus other stuff
