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 and you are really considering driving to the airport and … Continue reading
On the drive in this morning, kiddo is quietly immersed in a not-so-quiet Dora the Explorer DVD when I hear “look mommy”. I glance over my shoulder and she is grinning at me with her bowl (previously containing a breakfast of mini pancakes) balanced on her head. The backyard is now fenced. Meaning, the Finnspace Family Compound is now complete. I have been developing some … Continue reading random good things
I always read that word in my head as “Sun Dry”…as in, “I let my wet shirt sun dry”…or something…ok, wait, actually I guess I would really say “I let my wet shirt dry in the sun” or “I let my wet shirt air dry” or “I threw that wet shirt in the dern dryer”. Yeah, probably that last one. Whatever. Yes, I’m back to sporadic … Continue reading various and sundry
Quick weekend recap…lovely weekend with The Accountant. Mom came to stay with Sam on Saturday night so hubs and I got a hotel room in the city and lived it up like almost 40 year olds tend to do. (Well, almost 40 and almost 35 year olds anyway. Guess who’s younger?) Thanks mom, you rawk. Know what I hate? Those little ankle socks that don’t … Continue reading sup?
This is me. Spreading sunshine everywhere I go. Yep yep. I mean, can’t you tell? Heh. The not-so-funny thing is, I really am a fun lively laughing joking person when I’m out from behind a desk. Can we say “you got off at the wrong stop lady”? Yes we can. Eh, anyway. Stuff ‘n things. Ummmmmm, I got nuthin’ I guess. Oh wait, here’s some stuff…the … Continue reading why the long face?
on days when i want to thumb my nose at The Man, i make sure and wear a shirt that’s cut low enough in the back so that my tattoo shows. only because this is in clear violation of the dress code and i can be a passive aggressive bish queen when i want to be. and you know that i always turn my back … Continue reading fulooca pooca bahooka
curling. but only because i don’t know anything about it. i should probably research the rules and such but its so much more entertaining to make fun of it. i keep reading tweets about some norwegian curler’s pants…must google this…oh heck yeah, just saw them and may i just say that i would totally wear those! y’all know how much i love me some argyle. … Continue reading things i don’t “get”

I have tried very hard to like Conan O’Brien but I just don’t. I booked my flight to NYC today! Going next month for a weekend. Tomorrow is my Friday. As I believe I have mentioned before. I ran for the first time in weeks tonight and it felt great. Much walking but some running. I am loving The Time Traveler’s Wife on this second … Continue reading sleepy time? no.
…but a problem nonetheless… I’ve been losing some weight recently (go me!) and today I realized that while this is great, I now need to go shopping. Darn it, I know. My pants have been literally hanging onto my hips by a prayer all day today and have been driving me crazy. I’ve been awkwardly hitching them up all day long and not wanting to walk … Continue reading not a bad problem to have…
I had a blogging dream last night. I was going through my day and along the way I was collecting random things that happened and noting them in my head to post as one of my scattered, off-the-cuff ramblings that I tend to do. The only one I can remember was that as I was on my way to somewhere in the morning along a windy … Continue reading dreams and vagueness
The internet is boring me tonight and so I’ve decided to bore you instead. Then you can go to your own blog and write about how boring the internet is. I’m here for you people. I have a serious problem with unpacking bags from a trip. Sometimes I will return home and continue to live out of my suitcase for one or two weeks. I … Continue reading boop ba da boop
some people live in a box. they just do. a mental one but a box nonetheless. get out of it people! there are other ideas, values, thoughts, ways of doing things, perspectives, than what you see from within your cardboard brown walls. boredom is not an excuse to be stupid. maybe. sometimes you have to be stupid to learn anything but if you already know … Continue reading there is no title for this
This is what I say when I’m just kind of meh about it all. Usually right now I’m sitting in church with Sam but it seems that all three of us have contracted some sort of stomach virus that refuses to go away. I’ve had it the longest, then The Accountant was the lucky one and now Sam. So needless to say, I’m at home … Continue reading blurg
Life is weird. It just is. I have decided. When you think back 5, 10 years ago, would you have guessed that you’d be right where you are now? Then, what does that mean your life will be like 5, 10 years from now? Will it be totally different or basically the same thing with a different year attached? My noggin’ is full of haphazard … Continue reading things that have nothing to do with each other
Over the past week I’ve started two drafts about a certain topic but I can’t seem to get across what I want to say in the way that I want to say it. Its clear in my head but refuses to come out my fingertips. Frustrating. Maybe I’ll get it out eventually. It’s nothing that will solve the world’s problems or anything, just something I’ve been … Continue reading this is me being vague
My head hurts partly because I’m tired and a bit stressed and partly because I have a crazy brain that is full of swirling thoughts and various rambles. I have a post in progress about my return to school next semester but it’s still stewing and not ready for public consumption just yet. It will come later. I also have something to say about dead people, job applications, baby … Continue reading my head hurts
My BlogLog account seems to have magically disappeared. I was thinking about cancelling it anyway but I guess I don’t have to. Now I can stalk all of you incognito. What is the deal with doctor’s offices that will not call you back??? I’ve left two messages with my PCP regarding my asthma that is darn near going to kill me but they have yet to … Continue reading miscellany
Why can I not upload pictures from this weekend onto Flickr? Just wondering. Until it starts working again, here’s a picture of the ball of fur my parents call a cat, Bogey. Continue reading why
So I was wondering today…must we put everything “on ice”? Is this strictly a Disney thing? I saw an ad yesterday for High School Musical – ON ICE!!! Woot. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen ads in the past for The Lion King – ON ICE!!! and Dora the Explorer – ON ICE!!! And I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before we’ll see Hannah … Continue reading a couple of things
I almost complimented a lady in the restroom stall next to me on her uber fabulous chartreuse heels today. But then it occurred to me that she might be an undercover cop wearing magnificent footwear and what if that was the signal for soliciting lewd acts in a public restroom? So I didn’t. Continue reading sending the wrong signal?
I dunno what it means but here are some ramblings from my brain…. Sometimes I have trouble keeping my snarky, sarcastic and/or snide comments to myself. Today was one of those days. But I managed to keep my mouth shut and not get in trouble. Sometimes that is just so hard to do. I think some people would be surprised at what a smartypants I can be. … Continue reading today was tuesday, and this means what?
I’m still around, just been busy. Heading to Jackson to meet up with Scout and my bro at the Jaxx game tonight. Will catch up on posting and reading soon. Noticed a couple of new commenters, thanks for stopping by!! Continue reading mia
The Accountant is home right now waiting on the AC guy to come out and see what is going on. The guy called and can’t come out until after 12:00 today so looks like hubs gets a day off. Last night wasn’t so bad actually. The ac somehow managed to cool the house down to a manageable level so I didn’t have to sleep in … Continue reading still hot
