We had an epic Halloween this year. This is becoming my very favorite holiday. We had some family come over to see kiddo in her costume and partake of chips and dips of all sorts. Alas, this was not to be another year of cutsie princess or candy corn witch costumes for kiddo. She decided to be a “zombie witch” so I slapped some makeup … Continue reading Halloween report
…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…
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
I think I just cracked my jaw trying to bite into a Granny Smith apple. Ouch. Tomorrow I will attempt to make a spider costume by hand. This will go either very well or quite badly. Good thing we have a leftover pirate outfit and a fairy princess dress in the closet for potential backup costumes. Yum, this apple is making me want some green … Continue reading Tis Thursday
My “grey matter” as a former English teacher used to refer to our adolescent brains, has been completely mush the last couple of days. Maybe its too much Dora and not enough veggies or something, I dunno. I do the whole zoning out thing quite well but some days its way worse than others. I need a challenge of some sort. Some new stimulation or … Continue reading zombie brain
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 have to say, this Halloween was fantabulous. Hubs and I used Sam as our excuse to dress up. He was a pirate and I was, um, well, just tacky I guess. Sam was a Titans cheerleader as you know. We went to a party at a friend’s house for a bit and then made a few stops at the grandparents. Sam had no idea … Continue reading Halloween ’09
Happy Birthday to my sweet dad! Love you so much! Be home soon! xoxoxo. (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!
Seems like it’s been forever since I posted but its really only been a few days I guess. Things are, eh. The work front is causing me major stress, depression and just general ickiness. But I can’t really write about all that here so suffice it to say, it sucks. Otherwise, things are great. Sam is officially walking now. It is so cute and a bit … Continue reading stuff and things
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,
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
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?
First of all, a big Happy Birthday to my dad today! Dad, I sent a card but it will probably be late. I’ll call you tonight though! Love you and see you soon! Happy Halloween to the rest of you! Continue reading Happy Halloween and Happy Birthday!!
If I ever need to search for a particular post by title I am totally screwed ain’t I? It’s been a drama filled week working for The Man and I won’t go into it here because I try to stay away from that stuff as much as possible on this here blog. But wow, I really just wanna lay it all out on the internets … Continue reading bliggity bliggity blue
