this is painful, don’t even bother

First a random baby note: Sam can sign “hungry”, “thirsty” and “brush teeth”. It’s quite cute and quite handy. Except that she like to sign “brush teeth” a LOT. I think she’s just in love with the taste of the Elmo toothpaste. Can’t blame her, it is yummy. I’m just going to go ahead and apologize for this post. I just re-read it and visably … Continue reading this is painful, don’t even bother

did i break a mirror or something? no, that was just the garage door and some pipes

Soooooo, here we are. Friday again. (yeah, this post was started on Friday, I realize it’s now Saturday). Doo da, doo da. I’m feeling a bit random and scattered this afternoon. Distracted. But that’s not unusual for me. It’s been a long week campers. For various reasons. (I have a thing for sentence fragments by the way. Grammar police beware.) Thursday was Household Disaster Day … Continue reading did i break a mirror or something? no, that was just the garage door and some pipes

‘Cause I need one.¬†¬†But I want it to be cute.¬† It’s been a tumultuous week.¬† There’s been work craziness, house craziness¬†and¬†school craziness,¬†all of which were made worse by my hormonal craziness.¬† I’m at my wit’s end with two of those things and it’s not the house.¬† I have been such a basket case it’s scary.¬† Apparently I don’t handle simultaneous stressful events¬†very well and just … Continue reading do straight jackets come in purple?

wanna play…

…catch up that is?¬† It seems that real life, including not enough sleep, have taken a lot of my time away from¬†the¬†“internets”.¬† Ah well, that’s just how it goes I guess.¬† Basketball:¬† First of all, can we just say wow and congrats to the Belmont Bruins for what was apparently a great game against Duke tonight?¬† I somehow missed the game but tuned in at … Continue reading wanna play…

a bunch of hooey?

What in the name of all that makes logical sense on this earth does this sentence mean? For the demarcation of the fields where impulse should be as completely as possible dependent upon and correspondent with external situation, those in which reference should take prior place from those in which it may be subordinate to appetencies with advantage, is not a simple matter. Seriously people.¬† … Continue reading a bunch of hooey?


It feels like I’ve been doing¬†quite a bit¬†of waiting the past few weeks.¬† I’ve been waiting for school to start, waiting for my next doctor’s appointment and waiting to tell work about both of these things.¬† Last week I broke the news at work.¬† I told¬†both bosses separately but I went ahead and dropped both bombs on them at once. ¬†I’m all about the drama … Continue reading tomorrow
