fig newtons

It's late and I should be in bed but I'm up stress eating fig newtons instead. This does not bode well for my weigh-in tomorrow morning. Whatever. I've logged over 8 miles of wogging and 10 miles of biking the past three days so I don't feel too bad about it. Current worry: Kiddo got... Continue Reading →

girls be cray

There is a screaming contest happening on my back patio right now. The neighbors are probably going to call the cops or otherwise stage some sort of intervention. Kiddo had a birthday party at the house earlier today and is now embarking on that rite of passage known as her first slumber party...hosted by yours... Continue Reading →

puppet show science project

On one of our snow days last week kiddo decided we should make a "science project". The science project turned into a homemade mini stage and stick puppets. It was a fun day and kid is quite creative. We did a couple of puppet shows after her thorough explanation. Here's some footage for your viewing... Continue Reading →

not exactly what I had in mind

My Facebook status from this morning... Kiddo scrunches her nose up and says "ewwww" as we smell a skunk on the way to daycamp this morning. Then she says, "Ohhh mommy, I know what you can do for your new job! You can be a polecat catcher!". New job title...Finn, Certified Polecat Catcher. For all... Continue Reading →

Love Mommy

I really do have the most awesome kid. I was teary most of yesterday afternoon. I hate crying in front of kiddo because I don't want her to be worried about anything. 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... Continue Reading →

the latest

It's been a crazy, but good week for various reasons. I've made some headway on my personal to-do list, hung out with friends, made some plans, and did some thangs. Next week's list includes drastically ramping up the job search and figuring out/solidifying some vacation plans we have brewing. The weekend is looking promising. Kiddo... 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 →

next stop, juvie hall

Kiddo was/is having some adjustment issues at school. To put it bluntly, she's punching kids. Yes, punching. She's gotten in trouble two days in a row for channeling Rocky Balboa. Fabulous. For the record and in my kid's defense, she has attended day care from 8 weeks to 5 years old, and we've never had... Continue Reading →

various thoughts at 3 am

Emotional rollercoaster today. It's not something I can explain here. Its just...all the things. Bleh. Life is weird. As mentioned in the title, it's an ungodly hour and momma is up pacing, nervous as a cat. #1stdayofkindgergarten Last day of daycare today for kiddo. Teary pickup. Last long commute home with her. Not so teary,... Continue Reading →

quick rant

Really? The county school system just left us a message letting us know about the PreK program that we could enroll kiddo in if we wanted to hold off on kindergarten another year. Hello, it is two days before and you are going to tell me about this NOW? No way. Kiddo is primed and... Continue Reading →

Sprayground fun

Kiddo loves spray parks and we are lucky to have some great ones close by. Yesterday afternoon we ventured to Cumberland Park in Nashville. It was the perfect day for it, not to hot, not too sunny (although I did get a little crispy on my nose and forehead). The park is beautiful, with lovely... Continue Reading →

more than princesses

Five years ago today I endured hours of labor and came out of it looking pretty rough. (see photo evidence) I'll never do THAT again. Heh. No, I'm not kidding, seriously, I won't. One kid and done with that, so y'all can stop asking me when I'm having another. For real. Stop it. Right now.... Continue Reading →

party central

Today...kiddo's wild birthday party with some of her friends at "the bounce house place", as we call it. Whew. It was a hit but, whew. Kid was SO stinkin' excited. This is a really fun, if exhausting, age. Her actual birthday isn't until Wednesday so I guess we'll just consider this her birthday week since... Continue Reading →

bodies break

So far so good on the 1/2 training. Mostly. I was pumped to run outside last night but by the time I was free to do so, it was pouring rain and lightning. I will run in the rain no problem, but lightning is another bear. So to the gym I went and got in... Continue Reading →

Crankypants McGhee

In addition to carrying over some irritability from yesterday afternoon, I also woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. This has made for unpleasantness all around and if I could crawl into a dark cave for days and have no one need anything from me or bother me, I would so... Continue Reading →
