The Morning Burglar

Today I did something that ranks in the top three dumbest things I’ve ever done. Being something of a scatterbrain, I do a lot of dumb things. I lose my keys at least three times a week, put toothpaste in the refrigerator, go the wrong way coming out of stores in the mall, can’t find my car in parking lots and garages—things like that. It’s Wednesday … Continue reading The Morning Burglar

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 one on Pinterest (where else) that looked simple enough for … Continue reading So we made a fall wreath…

in which i shake my fist at the universe…

…and she laughs in my face, and then spits snow in it. Today was just bizarre. Here was my plan…take kiddo to day care, come home, make quick grocery run, get ready and drive back to town for an interview, interview, knock their socks off and get an offer on the spot, do jubilant cartwheels down the hall and all the way to my car, pick up kiddo at … Continue reading in which i shake my fist at the universe…

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

both icky and nice

Today has been equal parts icky and nice. The icky parts first… -We are passing a cold around and it’s my turn to be It. I feel like poo with the typical snottiness, stuffiness, coughiness, achiness, etc. The Accountant is feeling better finally and Sam seems to have dodged the worst of it so I’m thankful for those things.  -The Titans didn’t bother to show … Continue reading both icky and nice

tidbits

Another weekend bites the dust.  Boo.  I am soooooo sick of all the election mumbo-jumbo.  Seriously, can we just get this over with please?  I’m glad I early voted so I don’t have to worry about getting to the polls on time or fighting the crowds.  For once I did something ahead of time and didn’t procrastinate.  Go me.  Saturday Night Live = hilarity. I … Continue reading tidbits

on the road & a near naked cat

I’ve done a lot of getting up early and a lot of driving this weekend and I’m a bit tired.  I made stops in the majority of the towns dotting Weakley County this weekend, and some places were blessed/cursed with my presence multiple times.  I accomplished a lot though and got to visit my other grandparents who I’ve felt a bit neglectful of late.  I also was able to spend a … Continue reading on the road & a near naked cat

there are spies among us

Scout has me howling with her post about the Great Church Swap of 2007.  Yes, people, it’s a real, genuine, four alarm, top of the line, state of the art, no holds barred, no strings attached church swap! Hallelujah! “Well, good God, don’t let them convert you,” vehemently declared one historically nutso yet concerned aunt while wringing her hands and slipping into a menopausal heat … Continue reading there are spies among us
