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 →

breathe momma breathe

Being a parent is THE most stressful thing. And I have it easy. One kid. No major health issues. Normal behavior. Easy peasy. Yet still THE most stressful thing. I must be a complete wuss or something. Kiddo had a tummy bug a couple of weekends ago. She recovered in a couple of days but... 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 →

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 →

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 →

bedtime smedtime

An early bedtime? What ever was I thinking? I was in bed before 11pm though, so that's better than the night before. Kiddo had dance class (cutest thing ever, btw), and then we went to eat, and then kiddo bathtime, bedtime routine, story...So its 9pm by then and the dog needs walking. I don't remember...

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 →

winning at sick days

Kiddo has a stomach bug so today was a sick day. I just wrote a post to go with this picture about the patience and nurturing of mothers being given out in different size containers and how I only got an 8 oz Mason jar, while others got big ol' five gallon plastic buckets full...

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...

What are those nuts called that are shaped like kidneys? I like those. And peanuts. Peanuts are my favorite. Almonds I will tolerate but they don't really do it for me. I just ate this and it was good. I had a turkey sandwich, baked Lays and an apple for lunch. Exciting noms no? Stuff... Continue Reading →

mommy stuff

So yeah, we've been on vacation for several days and are just now getting back into the routine of real life. Sort of. We had a great time at the beach (pictures forthcoming if I can ever get them all downloaded). Kiddo really made great process with her swimming and got braver with each day.... Continue Reading →

Miss Independent

Three is proving to be a challenging age. Sam has a mind of her own and is not afraid to express it. But I love that she's spunky and not a shy little wallflower like I was as a kid. She's perfecting her negotiation skills in determined attempts to eat cookies for breakfast and wear... Continue Reading →

three years ago yesterday

Kiddo's birthday was yesterday. There was just enough family, there were way too many presents, there is never enough cake. She had a crazy fabulous fun time. I can't believe I have a three year old. You'd think I'd get used to it eventually but so far, nope. She's a blessing and a source of... Continue Reading →
