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
Number of weeks till Paris…4…To celebrate number of years married to the love of my life…15…Number of happys this makes me…Too many to count. ❤ Bring it on. SQUEEEEEEE!!!! Continue reading all the squeeees.
I cringe when I think about how much I have taken him for granted in the recent past. He loves me and kiddo to the ends of the earth and takes care of us like no one else ever could. I don’t deserve him. We will celebrate 15 years of marriage this summer (in Paris no less!!!) and 18 total years together. Marriage isn’t easy … Continue reading let me be sappy for a minute
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 is so excited that she can hardly stand it. Some … Continue reading the latest
…my body that is. And brain too, I suppose. Feeling good lately with better food choices and consistent work outs at the gym and walking/jogging outside. The weather is supposed to be icky this week so I’ve tried to take advantage of the good stuff while I can and have been getting my walks done outside before I have to resort to the treadmill. My … Continue reading moving…
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 all of those things but I don’t have control over … Continue reading i should be sleeping
As briefly mentioned in a prior post, The Accountant and I had scheduled an all weekend babysitter for kiddo and a weekend getaway for ourselves. My throat issues mysteriously disappeared shortly after I complained about them and off we went. I could so live the rest of my life in a nice hotel. We were within walking distance of everything we wanted, and shuttle distance … Continue reading the weekend and wheels
It rained today. I don’t mean it rained for an hour or two, it rained ALL dang day. We didn’t really have solid plans for the 4th anyway but if we had planned on outdoor activities, they weren’t happening. So we ventured to a lazy late breakfast at one of my favorite places that tries a little too hard to be reminiscent of Paris in … Continue reading so it goes on the 4th of July
Today was pretty great. Hubs was off work too so we took the kiddo to school and spent the day together. We went to the gym and got our sweat on, then rode the motorcycle to a monstrously large parking lot so he could give me riding lessons without endangering others, next was vegetarian sushi for lunch, sweet cece’s for dessert, capped off with a … Continue reading time spent
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
There once was a boy named Billy He married a girl who was silly They had a daughter called Sam And he stopped eating ham It’s been thirteen years now, no really! Like I always say, I love you more than cake! Happy Anniversary baby! Continue reading A limerick for my husband on our 13th anniversary!
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
Ok, honestly today kind of did, but yesterday was good. The Accountant’s birthday was yesterday but we were too tired to celebrate much. Poor guy. Tax season is killing him and I’ve been immersed in federal grant land for weeks. But we have a sitter lined up for tomorrow night so we’ll do something in honor of his big day. Although, truth be told, I … Continue reading Today….did NOT suck!
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

Saturday was The Accountant and my 11 year anniversary! Wow right? Of course that doesn’t count the 3 plus years that we dated. So officially I have been driving him crazy for almost 15 years! We were out to eat Saturday with Sam and it came up in conversation with the waitress that it was our anniversary. She asked the obligatory “how many years” question … Continue reading 11 years plus Anniversary Cobbler
Random. Someone found this blog by searching for “rockin it out”. That made me crack up. Continuing the random. I have a problem. I cannot bring myself to throw away socks. Hole in the heel? Eh, put it back in the drawer, I’ll throw it away never later. Trouser socks that are supposed to stay up under my knee but wind up sagging and smooshed around my … Continue reading fiddle dee dee
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
Sam is starting to do things to really crack me up. Perhaps I should go visit her now as I could use a good laugh. For instance, tell me my kid doesn’t look like a crazy mad toddler scientist riding this horse? And here she is trying to figure out what Daddy is doing. She is sitting in the booth at our favorite Mexican restaurant like … Continue reading funny kid
what up world? things might be calming down in some aspects in our household. sam is much much better, thank the lord and antibiotics. i take her back to the doctor in a couple of hours for a follow up but all seems well and she went back to day care yesterday with no problems other than buckets of snot and coughing her cute lil … Continue reading hai

My hands are super dry and I forgot my lotion today. Am going to have to go bumming for some. Lovely weekend. Finished shopping. Well, make that started and finished shopping. In about 4 hours. At Target. Go me. I approached it guerrilla warfare style. Ambushed the place and got out as fast as possible. Seemed to work great. Excellent strategy if I do say … Continue reading okie dokie
