yeah, its been a minute…

…but people keep dying and getting sick on me. Since my last post two more grandmothers have passed, this time on The Accountant’s side, and also within a few days of each other. Its been sad and exhausting. Four deaths within less than three months…too much. Kiddo has been sick with a stomach virus, then I got it and still have it, and now I … Continue reading yeah, its been a minute…

Halloween 2011

Best.Halloween.Ever. Sam’s homemade spider costume turned out great and was a huge hit at our two trick-or-treating outings. She loved it and didn’t balk at wearing it at all. I was a bit worried that she wouldn’t wear the hat but she loved everything about it. I was kinda proud of myself for being so crafty. The Accountant and I took her to a trick-or-treating … Continue reading Halloween 2011

A day at the pumpkin patch

I’m thinking a trip to the local pumpkin patch will become an October tradition. We took kiddo to one last year and she had a great time. This year we found another one a few miles from our current home and decided to check it out on Saturday. She loved the animals and picking out her pumpkin. Its a cute place, well organized and lots … Continue reading A day at the pumpkin patch

(I was going to post a cute picture of my dad and me but there was an unfortunate incident at my house yesterday and a bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper decided to fall off the nightstand and straight onto and into my laptop. Hubs is trying to salvage it but we … Continue reading today!

Dear Sam,

You might find this interesting when you get older. Or just further testament to your mother’s weird quirkiness. Anywho. Your father has gotten into this incredibly adorable habit of calling you “Buttercup” or “Butternut”. Don’t ask me what the whole “butter” theme is all about but isn’t that the cutest thing? Your mother (that’s me), on the other hand, tends to call you “Stinker Butt” … Continue reading Dear Sam,

back to your regularly scheduled randomness

I bought a pumpkin today. Never bought a pumpkin before that I can recall. Here’s my question…is there a difference between a “pie pumpkin” (that’s what it says on the sticker) and one you use to carve a jack-o-lantern? Do I need to return my “pie pumpkin” for a “jack-o-lantern” pumpkin? ‘Cause you know I ain’t makin’ no dang pie! Or a jack-o-lantern either for … Continue reading back to your regularly scheduled randomness

wah?

Ever hear someone talking but have no idea what they’re saying and couldn’t repeat it 2 seconds after? Yeah, I’m doing that today. Everyone sounds like Charlie Brown’s teacher…wahwahwahwahwah. It is hot as hades in here and I’m not even kidding. Maybe it’s my weird illness, maybe it’s the hot soup I just ate for lunch, maybe it’s this weird rash I seem to have … Continue reading wah?
