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

random good things

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


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?

why the long face?

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?

not a bad problem to have…

…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…

dreams and vagueness

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

there is no title for this

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

things that have nothing to do with each other

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

this is me being vague

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

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

a couple of things

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

today was tuesday, and this means what?

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?
