summer storms

Kiddo is breathing heavy beside me, borderline snoring through the thunder and lightning. I love storms. At least those of the non-threatening, not gonna blow your house away kind. The snoring blond bundle turns six years old tomorrow. I'm not going to say the usual "I can't believe how big she's getting", or "She's growing... Continue Reading →

sunburn and a pogo stick

Today was rad. I took kiddo to the zoo for a date with her bestie and her mom, and then to her friend's house for lunch and playtime. My friend Phil, grilled for us and then there was tree climbing, hide and go seeking, Disney soundtracking, doughnut eating, rope swinging, bike riding, hula hooping, and... Continue Reading →

snowmaggedon

I knew it was going to happen because I felt it in my bones. That today would be a snow day and the never ending Christmas vacation of 2013 would prevail. That's ok because I love my kid just as much as any parent on the planet. However, I also love not being a stay-at-home... Continue Reading →

Four miles

Run/walk/sweatfest/triednottodie on the greenway today. I got four miles in and was happy with it for the most part. I didn't make it out the door at 5:30 as planned, as I'm not good at plans apparently. So it was hot as blacksmith tongs by the time I did get out there. I did decent... Continue Reading →

weather madness

Today has been interesting and its supposed to get more so later this afternoon and tonight.  Impending storms, tornadoes, crazy winds, flooding...Armageddon basically, if you listen to the Weather Channel. Not that I'm not taking it very seriously. We don't play when it comes to tornadoes down here. I have our "safe room" ready (although... Continue Reading →

the flood

so, nashville, i love you. the last several days have been madness as you all know by now. no damage at our house. but so many others...there are just no words. besides the greater heartbreak of the stories of loss and death and unbelievable survival, how surreal was it to see nashville and it's landmarks...

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 →

girly

I'm kinda diggin' this necklace today... In other news, it's still cold but I'm thinking we're not gonna get the blizzard of '10 like people are freaking out about. Call me crazy (I know you do that anyway) but we'll see. I mean, I'm all for a snow day but I just have my doubts.... Continue Reading →

can you live-blog a tornado?

Ahhhhh!!!  These storms and tornadoes all over the place scare the poo outta me.  The Accountant and the dog are snoozing like well, babies.  How do they do that?  I'm glued to the tv with a flashlight, my cat and my cell phone by my side.  Two deaths in Huntingdon?  Did I just hear that...

busy bee

I am loving this weather!  It's the perfect fall temperature and the leaves in my part of town are gorgeous.  My morning walks with Cooper have been delightful (to use a word that should be used more often).  Today will be a busy one.  Church in a bit, and then I'm thinking I'm going to...

so how’s the weather?

It's the most perfect day outside.  I walked across the street to grab lunch and for some reason it surprised me how gorgeous it was out there.  Guess that can happen when you come clawing out from your cave and squint into the sunlight for the first time in several hours.

finally!

I've never been so thankful to see it rain before, ever.  It made me smile and think of these things. •  The Morton's salt girl.  One of my favorite logos of all time (my advertising background coming out) and I remember we always had a box of it in the cabinet at home as a... Continue Reading →
