The Morning Burglar

Today I did something that ranks in the top three dumbest things I’ve ever done. Being something of a scatterbrain, I do a lot of dumb things. I lose my keys at least three times a week, put toothpaste in the refrigerator, go the wrong way coming out of stores in the mall, can’t find my car in parking lots and garages—things like that. It’s Wednesday … Continue reading The Morning Burglar

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 at a minimum. It’s restlessness to the extreme, but restlessness … Continue reading the place

humble pie for breakfast

Its 5:00 am and entirely too quiet, too dark, and too cold for the madness that is me getting up to go for a wog (walk/jog) this morning. The argument in my head was of the classic angel vs devil variety. My Head: Its a new day! Go wog. You’ll be glad you did. My Bed: Its soooo warm and cozy in here, isn’t it? … Continue reading humble pie for breakfast

morning ride and the state of my brain

I thought since last night’s walk was so pain free and relatively easy that this morning’s bike ride would be the same. Um, no. Apparently my legs are still in rebellion mode because those 6 miles were more than a bit lackluster. There is one TINY hill on this route and I was struggling to get up it. But it still felt good to be … Continue reading morning ride and the state of my brain

cue annie lenoxx broken glass song

Because I win at life lately, I just spilled a bunch of tea inside the refrigerator and on the floor. Even better, I dropped a glass and it shattered into a million shards of feet shredding danger bits all over the tile floor. I vacuumed but shoes would be a good idea in the kitchen until I can mop and re-vacuum tomorrow. Thought you should … Continue reading cue annie lenoxx broken glass song

Life isn’t like the movies, and how do babies get outta there

Frances Ha. 9 out of 10 stars. At first I found the dialogue a bit disjointed and awkward but I don’t know if I just got used to it or it appealed to me more after it settled in my brain after sleeping on it. Shot in black and white, it was lovely to look at and Greta Gerwig made the movie work I think. … Continue reading Life isn’t like the movies, and how do babies get outta there

here i sit

In an exam room at my doctor’s office that is. They got me into a room without the usual one hour wait so that was nice. Of course, the doc might not get in here for another week or so. Scratch that. He’ll be here soon I’m sure. I’m trying to think more positively lately. Really. Not so brief recap of why I’m here…took Cooper … Continue reading here i sit

this happened to me today & i was super bummed

know what i hate? when oatmeal raisin cookies fool me and i think they’re chocolate chip cookies and i buy them looking forward to a yummy snack only to discover the awful truth when i bite into a perfectly good grape that has been shriveled up and is all wrinkly and chewy and sticks in my teeth. that sucks. just had to get that out. in other … Continue reading this happened to me today & i was super bummed

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

did i break a mirror or something? no, that was just the garage door and some pipes

Soooooo, here we are. Friday again. (yeah, this post was started on Friday, I realize it’s now Saturday). Doo da, doo da. I’m feeling a bit random and scattered this afternoon. Distracted. But that’s not unusual for me. It’s been a long week campers. For various reasons. (I have a thing for sentence fragments by the way. Grammar police beware.) Thursday was Household Disaster Day … Continue reading did i break a mirror or something? no, that was just the garage door and some pipes

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

and so it goes

Not really much to write about lately that you haven’t heard before.  My latest baby adventure involved the rice cereal/formula mixture (doctor’s orders, not my idea) not coming out of the bottle nipple and a mad dash to Target to buy formula and bottles and mixing them in the parking lot.  Meanwhile my baby girl is screaming her head off at daycare because she hadn’t … Continue reading and so it goes

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 world of Days Of Our Lives.  Next thing you know … Continue reading morphing

keeper of the greeting cards

Ouch, I just gave myself brain-freeze by eating a grape popsicle too fast.  Yeowsers. So yeah, I know this blog has been sucking lately.  I’m just not very motivated to post regularly I guess.  Meh.  Just haven’t been into it. Anywho.  I have OCD.  Or something.  Did you know that?  Last night I was in Walgreens looking at the greeting cards.  The “greeting card lady” … Continue reading keeper of the greeting cards

ditzy moment of the day

Sooooo, I’ll just say it, I’m an idiot.  I’m reading an email from a friend and she’s telling me about the lunch she just had at Taco Bell (yes, we have the most interesting conversations of ALL time, don’t hate) and it’s making me hungry.  It is quite easy to make me hungry these days, just mention the word “Kroger” and watch my reaction.  Anyway, so … Continue reading ditzy moment of the day

text messaging gone bad

I accidentally called one of my good friends a “ho” today.  My cell phone has been acting all wonky lately, calling people when I haven’t dialed, scrolling through my contacts list like a phone possessed and sending text messages before I’m through typing them.  That last thing is what happened today.  It went a little something like this… Friend:  “I hope you get it!” Finn:  … Continue reading text messaging gone bad
