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 but the alone time was quite nice. The Accountant watched … Continue reading trumping tiffany’s
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 is happenin’ around here. Tomorrow I’m moving into a new … Continue reading snippets
Hi. 3am, kiddo just woke me up to go pee. Small victories. However, if she is still doing this when she is 10 I will claw my eyes out. This guy has weird eyes on HouseHunters. They are like crossed but not really. I can’t stop staring so I’m glad he can’t see me. Christmas was great and if I were a proper mommy blogger … Continue reading I’ve already seen/saw/whatever this HouseHunters episode
Up with a frantic kiddo doing the pee pee dance which resulted in a trip to the potty with no results. But hey, she tried. Yes, we are still in pull ups at night (her, not me, yet) and honestly, I’m not worrying about it until she’s 10 or so. Haha. I know I don’t write here much anymore. Guess I’m too busy living life … Continue reading 2:50 AM
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 her underwear on her head to school. Don’t worry, I … Continue reading Miss Independent
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 much love and frustration in one tiny fireball of a … Continue reading three years ago yesterday
Thanks to a friend for sending me a CD of The Laurie Berkner Band. Mom and daughter both love it! Kiddo is currently in love with this song in particular. I’ll look at her, wiggle my fingers and say “I’m gonna get you, you better run” and she giggles, takes off running through the house laughing her head off while I chase her and sing-song “I’m gonna get you, here … Continue reading current musical influences
Posting has obviously been light here lately. I’ll get back to it sooner or later. In the meantime, here’s a video of kiddo. Just for fun. Peas ‘n Carrots Continue reading mommy get it
Very rough morning today. I was already on edge from some other things going on. On edge, as in I lay in bed for 45 minutes willing some sort of rip in the fabric of the universe to happen so that I wouldn’t have to get up. On edge, as in I didn’t shower this morning and am wearing the same jeans that I had on … Continue reading reframing the day*
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?
I hope you all had a grand, festive and most importantly, safe holiday weekend. The Accountant and I were off Friday and are both off Monday so that’s a nice weekend lenghthener. We spent a nice day together on Friday and time with kiddo over the rest of the weekend. Our holiday was uneventful really. No family get togethers, no fireworks, no cookouts. How lame are … Continue reading july 5th

It occurred to me that I need to update my blogroll as some of the ones on the list are defunct, moved, or just plain out of date. That will go on my to-do list. Right after “give the cat a bath”. Meaning, don’t hold your breath, I really should do it but am feeling lazy. What I also am is very freakin’ sleepy. Crazy cool … Continue reading cheapy bleepy i sure am sleepy, plus other stuff
It’s raining like crazy up in here right now. Totally messing my Lakers/Celtics game up with that whole satellite reception thing. I’ve been a bit out of it lately, to put it mildly. There is massive drama going on, some good and some bad. But all dramatic and stuff, as drama tends to be. What’s that saying I’ve always hated? What doesn’t kill you, makes … Continue reading it was a dark and stormy night..
Posting over here has been a bit light lately huh? Things are just…chaotic right now. Speaking of weird, is it weird that I can’t sleep without socks on? Well, I guess I could if I had to but I don’t like to. At all. Why did I think of that just now? I have no clue. I am completely drawing a blank so here are … Continue reading doobie doobie doo
Last fairy-themed ones I promise. Gah, I’ve turned into “that mom”…. Continue reading enough with the fairy stuff please
Here are some pics of Sam from the weekend’s fairy funness. Continue reading Cooper as Fairy PrinceDog
click to embiggen pics… sam hugging cooper. he has paws on his eyes to block out the demon eyes given to him by bad lighting and a poor camera. these are some seriously cute feet semi-petting a goat at the zoo. of all the exotic animals to look at, she liked the goats best. sad & pathetic sam. i probably wouldn’t let her eat another … Continue reading for papa & grandma
Here’s a very blurry dark video of kiddo. I’m in pain tonight so no lengthy post. More on that later. I think I’m pushing the legal limit on ibprofen consumption. ‘Night. Continue reading quick video
Ohmagoodness. So tired today. For whatever reason, Sam was up three times last night. There’s a difference in tone that only mommies can hear between when she is crying out in her sleep and will drift back off to dreamland and the cry she makes when I know she’s awake and won’t go back to sleep until I go in her room and figure out … Continue reading kiddo = no sleepytime last night
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?
sounds like an indy movie title to me. i’m still sick but what ya gonna do? its friday. i’m off work, sam is at daycare and i have a list to get through at home. finishing the painting in my bathroom is the main thing. touching up in the accountant’s bathroom, cleaning out my closet (or at least getting a good start on that). so … Continue reading sick girl painting
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
