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 →

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 →

Testy

I'm on a short fuse today for one reason or another. Its Sunday, so by this time every weekend I've responded to 20 gazillion calls of "mommy mommy" and my patience is taxed. I know that I am kiddo's whole world at this stage in her life so I try to keep perspective and channel... Continue Reading →

Dear Runkeeper,

Thank you for sending me this. However, I am in fact, NOT "bored with my routine", as you so helpfully suggested. You see, I no longer have a routine, unless you count lots of sleeping, cupcakes, and mentally tripping the senders of these relentless running emails as they walk down stairs. So by all means,...

grumpy mcgrumperson

I am not a fan of small talk nor am I very good at it. Post holiday small talk tops the list of all categories of dreaded chitty-chatty-for-no-reason banter. Hello person with me in the elevator who I don't know but who I think works in accounting..."how was your Christmas" they ask me...I say "it... Continue Reading →

shutting down

Today has been, oh, what's the word I'm looking for? Oh yeah, SHITTY. That's it. And I just deleted the long post explaining why. So I will do what I usually do. Announce that I'm in a pissy mood and then shut down, crawl in my hole until my psyche cycles out of it, and then... Continue Reading →

aaaaaand here we are

Hi. I'm in one of those "I feel like talking/typing but I have nothing of value to say but am going to post anyway" kind of moods. Which usually ends up to be long rambling paragraphs about baby poop or the dream I had last night. But you don't mind or else you wouldn't be... Continue Reading →

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,... Continue Reading →

blarg

I'm having a really bad day. Let's just get that right out there. I feel beat down and discouraged with no way out of this hole I've put myself in. And I can't even, don't even, want to talk about specifics (not here obviously, but not anywhere or to anyone) because if you're not here,... Continue Reading →

friday randoms

This was in my drafts but I'm clicking "publish", even though this is Saturday. So there... Yesterday I was either invisible or just in a meeting to look cute. I'll choose the later. Some people are just too big for their britches, as the saying goes. But it's over so whatever. I've become apathetic to some... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

one day I’m going to go “splat”

Who were the brilliant civil engineers who decided it would be a good idea to build a circular street in which all drivers already within the circle are free to go round and round all day long if they wish, while those trying to merge onto the circle from multiple points on the perimeter must yield?  You know what...

time is screwed up

Do you know why time is screwed up?  Me neither, but the reason that I know it is - because the days are way too long and drag on forever but the evenings are entirely too short and fly by with a whoosh and a 'see ya later'.  The batteries are dead in the universal clock and or the spacetime...

grumble grumble

I'm bummed tonight.  By the time I got home from work, Sam was already in her crib asleep.  I kept thinking she'd wake up any minute but it's almost 9:30 pm and she's still sleeping.  It's all I can do not to go in her room and "accidentally" cough really loud so she'll wake up...

how do i bring sexy back?

You know those women who claim to love their new post-childbirth-bodies?  The ones who expound on the beauty and utility of their new boobs and maintain that they have embraced their stretchmarks as some honorable "badge of motherhood"? I am not one of those women.  And those women are obviously lying.  I'm just sayin'. I agree with these... Continue Reading →

morphing

Something very alarming is happening to me.  And I'm not sure if any amount of medical treatment can stop the madness. In the line at the grocery store the other day for example.  Instead of buying Cosmo or Marie Claire, I bought a Family Circle.  What the heck?  Instead of MTV, I'm becoming sucked into the imaginary...

ouchie-wa-wa

If you are walking along and happen to spot two very engorged bOObies lying on the ground writhing in pain, they are mine.  Please do not return them to me as I do not want them back.  Ever.

6 week mark

Sami is six weeks old today!  We've made it this far without going 100% crazy so I guess we will be ok.  She is becoming more animated and making different noises and faces.  There are a few smiles too. The six week mark also means that my maternity leave is officially halfway over.  Please pass... Continue Reading →
