29 and holding. Plus 10.

So, I turned 39 today. I'm trying to feel positive about this and embrace the moment and all that jazz, but Ima keep it real and just say that it kind of sucks. I have a case of the birthday blues and feel pretty stupid and petty about it. And if anyone says "its better... Continue Reading →

So we made a fall wreath…

...and it's kind of gaudy, but looks ok from the road. I don't know what possessed me but a couple of weekends ago I got the urge to make something fall-ish for the front door, probably still riding momentum from our stellar Halloween decorations, and so I took to the internet for inspiration. I found... Continue Reading →

Halloween report

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... Continue Reading →

I was looking at vintage Valentines this morning because free time, and this one cracked me up. So I'm sharing it with you. I have chocolates and cards waiting for kiddo and hubs. Plus, the little one is getting a teddy bear and a new battery powered toothbrush and bubblegum toothpaste. Little Mermaid style, thank... Continue Reading →

stuff ‘n thangs

I'm over the holidays and Christmas "vacation". I'm ready to go back to work. And now there is the threat of Snowmaggedon on Sunday night so there's more than a snowball's chance in hell that Monday will be a snow day and I will go crazy. I'm overly dramatic, I realize. Its been awesome to... Continue Reading →

the latest

I'm more like Melancholy Melanie today rather than Crankypants McGhee. Progress people, it's a slow thing sometimes. Memorial Day weekend turned out nice. I won't recap the details but here's a list of sorts...family walk on greenway, family cookout and subsequent soccer playing, trip to the zoo, puppet making and puppet show, gym, toy mini...

trumping tiffany’s

So, today....the first day of 2013. Quiet day with kiddo and The Accountant, for the most part. I got a nice run/walk in this morning before the rain, kiddo and I went to Target for miscellany and then to Jersey Mike's for sandwiches. I went to a movie by myself. The movie was pretty bad...

giving 2011 the boot

This is not exactly how I thought/hoped/planned  2011 would go out. Meaning, sitting up in bed with a space boot on, listening to my kid tell the dog that he's going into "timeout" for eating toilet paper. Oh well, the best laid plans... No offense to anyone who does this but I hate cheesy New... Continue Reading →

2:50 AM

Up with a frantic kiddo doing the pee pee dance which resulted in a trip to the potty with no results. But hey, she tried. Yes, we are still in pull ups at night (her, not me, yet) and honestly, I'm not worrying about it until she's 10 or so. Haha. I know I don't... Continue Reading →

in which i ramble

Just so you know the status, I have a massive headache and am grumpy today. Now you're up to date. In happy news, my nails look pretty in that trashy Barbie kind of way and the countdown is now at six days. All of that seems incredibly petty with all that is going down in the world these days. It... Continue Reading →

I am not a fan of small talk nor am I very good at it. Post holiday small talk tops the list of all categories of dreaded chitty-chatty-for-no-reason banter. Hello person with me in the elevator who I don't know but who I think works in accounting..."how was your Christmas" they ask me...I say "it... Continue Reading →

july 5th

I hope you all had a grand, festive and most importantly, safe holiday weekend. The Accountant and I were off Friday and are both off Monday so that's a nice weekend lenghthener. We spent a nice day together on Friday and time with kiddo over the rest of the weekend. Our holiday was uneventful really.... Continue Reading →

so here we go…

...with a new year and all that jazz. i'm not going to post an official "reflections from 2009/new years resolutions for 2010" because honestly, i'm just not into that this year. i have some personal goals for the year that i'll keep to myself as they are mine to work on. (and one of them... Continue Reading →

4:42am on Christmas Day

And I'm up for no good reason other than I fell asleep at 9pm with my makeup on and without brushing my teeth. I guess the sheer grossness of that woke me up, that's all I can figure. Santa came to our house last night and Sam's gifts are patiently waiting under the tree for... Continue Reading →
