current musical influences

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

I seem to have crawled into a hole here lately and haven’t been in much of a hurry to climb out. I owe several friends emails or phone calls and have just been withdrawn in general. Sometimes I have a tendency to shut down within certain circles. I’m so weird. There’s one big reason for it and many smaller ones. and….here we are again. the above … Continue reading

changes, they are a comin’

This chick on House Hunters is looking for a townhouse in Toronto. The one before, the couple was looking for a vacation home in Napa Valley. This show is like crack for me. It sucks me in and won’t let me go. Both of these episodes are reruns but I watch them anyway. House stuff is happening. We’re cleaning, decluttering, purging and packing like wildfire … Continue reading changes, they are a comin’

just me…talking about stuff

First and most importantly, the earthquake in Haiti…horrible, tragic, unimaginable…things like this put my silly whining and craziness into severe perspective. You can donate at several places but two of my favs are the American Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders. Speaking of  things these tragedies put into perspective, I keep hearing all these rumblings about some guy named Lane Kiffin leaving TN and heading … Continue reading just me…talking about stuff

tidbits

Another weekend bites the dust.  Boo.  I am soooooo sick of all the election mumbo-jumbo.  Seriously, can we just get this over with please?  I’m glad I early voted so I don’t have to worry about getting to the polls on time or fighting the crowds.  For once I did something ahead of time and didn’t procrastinate.  Go me.  Saturday Night Live = hilarity. I … Continue reading tidbits

this blog, the debate and my baby’s whompyjawed head

Yeah, it’s been a while since I’ve been on here for whatever reason.  I am trying to decide what to do with this blog.  Honestly, like a lot of things, I’m getting kind of bored with it or something.  I’m not sure what to do with it or what it is.  Am I now a mommy blogger?  Seems like that’s all I have to talk … Continue reading this blog, the debate and my baby’s whompyjawed head

I’m watching Project Runway.  Love this show!  I didn’t start watching until about midway last season and then I missed the grand finale because we went on vacation.  But tonight, I’m watching the first episode of season 4 and so far it’s as fun and crazy as I remembered and hoped!  why is my keyboard screwing up right now????!!!!???? Christian reminds me of Pauly Shore…is … Continue reading project runway

zzzzz

I’ve never watched more than a few minutes of the Emmy’s until tonight.  Now I know why.  It’s a complete snoozefest.  And what was the big deal about Ryan Seacrest hosting?  E! made it seem like some huge gig but he was only on for about 3 minutes at the beginning and I haven’t seen him since.  Tough job.  Someone is snoring on the couch next … Continue reading zzzzz
