miscellany

Sick. I really wish someone would bring me some warm gooey chocolate chip cookies today. I’m home sick with a fever, cough, etc etc and I say screw the chicken noodle soup, cookies are where its at. Anyway, mutter mutter growl. At least I should be over it in plenty of time to enjoy the holidays. Bright spot. Ugly. The news these days y’all. People … Continue reading miscellany

Sunday, 11/09/14

The work-week ended on a pretty positive note. The two meetings giving me ants in mah pants both turned out well enough. I went to an information session for Doctors Without Borders on Thursday. That was eye-opening and a great perspective check. They do such amazing work and shared many photos and stories from different missions.

For all your polecat catching needs…Business cards coming soon. That kid, always … Continue reading not exactly what I had in mind

But yesterday I couldn’t help it. I just told her that I’d had a bad day. She gave me hugs and patted and stroked my arm like I do to her when she … Continue reading Love Mommy

weather is stupid, sickly kid, weekend highlights, drugs are bad

Mother Nature can for real bite me. Kiddo’s school opens two hours late tomorrow but it wouldn’t surprise me if they cancel it altogether before morning. It is raining out there after all. I always roll my eyes at people yakking on and on about the weather but when you were just in short sleeves 24 hours ago and now school is out because of … Continue reading weather is stupid, sickly kid, weekend highlights, drugs are bad
