What is Happening?

I posted this on Facebook today but wanted it here as well. A good portion of my job is to be on Facebook and social media in general. Otherwise, I would find right now a good time to take a break, and I think it will serve me well to go ahead and limit the... Continue Reading →

Since You’ve Been Gone

I can breathe for the first time...Just kidding. After about a year's absence I kinda just have to start over here. Here are the major highlights: I started a new job! 🙂 Our dog died. 😦 I restarted and then quit grad school. Again. 😦 I've gained about 20 pounds. 😦 One out of four... Continue Reading →

the place

Sometimes you're in the middle of folding laundry and are watching Abstract: The Art of Design on Netflix at the same time and thinking about how you've been in this really weird frustrating place for the past several days. It's a place you find yourself over and over again, probably once every couple of months... Continue Reading →

managing time

My time management skills are the pits. As are my organizational skills, which I feel would be much better if my time management skills were better. Or maybe it's the other way around? Which came first, the organized Finn or the efficient Finn? Half the time I feel like I'm barely keeping it together without... Continue Reading →

2016 so far

...has already had quite a few ups and downs. The Ups My dad's store moved to a new location and it is pretty amazing. Nicer and newer with better parking and facilities. It's been a stressful time for him but I think things are finally settling down and falling into place. Hubs had some big/positive... Continue Reading →

Summertime

Here we are, in the throes of summer. It's been a whirlwind so far. Austin with our friends was fantastic and I should share pics but I always say that and then never do it. Bad bad blogger. I had a solo work trip to the ATL which was alright as far as work trips... Continue Reading →

I love this

REVERSE LIVING Life is tough. It takes a lot of your time, all your weekends, and what do you get at the end of it? Death, a great reward. I think that the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live twenty years in an... Continue Reading →

unsure

Random...Here's a photo I took of a llama...Or an alpaca...Some sort of camelid anyway. I think he/she is pretty cool...yep, so very random. This blog y'all...I neglect it for long periods of time because I get confused about what to do with it...what I want it to be...how I want to frame things here. And... Continue Reading →

about time for an update

I have obviously been neglecting the blog for various reasons but I was feeling froggy tonight and figured it was overdue an update.  So let's do that.... Work: I've been at the new gig for almost two months now. That first month was a doozy y'all. I was seriously questioning my decision and it was... Continue Reading →

ants in my pants dance

I'm antsy tonight. And now I'm antsy with that Dora the Explorer song stuck in my head. Fabulous. Its not really a bad kind of antsy though. I'm just sort of in this weird space in my brain with the job thing and wondering where I'm going to end up and how the course of... Continue Reading →

yeah, its been a minute…

...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... Continue Reading →

tally ho

I've decided to walk (jog some maybe) the 1/2 marathon on Saturday. Because not doing it will make me feel worse than doing it even though walking was not how I wanted this to go down. Bomb threat at my workplace today. Fabulous. Disney on Ice requires post event therapy. My kid was a total... Continue Reading →

placeholder

Just a quick check in as its been a few days since I've posted. My grandmother passed away a few days ago so its been a difficult week. A difficult couple of weeks actually. I want to post about her. Soon. Besides attending funerals, life is also otherwise busy. I have an old school planner... Continue Reading →

i should be sleeping

Its after midnight and I should be sleeping. But its a full blue moon and my brain is whirling. Today was busy and somewhat annoying but it ended better than it began I guess. I started off weepy and weird and missing a friend and worrying about some very serious family health issues. I'm still... 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 →

funny and serious

I was reading something the other day that stuck in my brain and made me want to "write it out". What's that saying about never letting anyone determine your self worth? Something like that. I make mistakes. Sometimes the same ones repeatedly. And there are times that I feel like I have imparted grace to... 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 →

this is why i’m in therapy folks

Texts this morning from yet another friend who is struggling for different reasons. Sometimes people are incredibly mean, closed minded, and heartless in their well-meaning-ness, if that makes any sense. I know life is difficult and there are struggles to be had. Its not all peachy keen, hunky dory, sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns, but I... Continue Reading →

shrinkage…

...of the head. Therapy of the mental sort continues once or twice a month. I just got back from today's session. I started about a year ago this April. It has been both helpful and confusing and disturbing and unsettling and amazing. The benefits and enlightenment that comes from being able to talk to a... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

you know that feeling when you know you should go to bed because its really late but you don't want to because your mind is whirling and you can't shut your brain off, plus you're not really sleepy and are just in that dreamy state of mind where random bizarre thoughts pop into your head...

paranoia and good things

I am the champion of all things paranoid. Or something like that. Life is really good right now and I sometimes feel like I'm teetering on a tower of blessings and good things that will sooner or later, topple to the ground when something bad happens to disturb it. And I wonder if I'm jinxing... Continue Reading →
