The work-week ended on a pretty positive note. The two meetings giving me ants in mah pants both turned out well enough. I went to an information session for Doctors Without Borders on Thursday. That was eye-opening and a great perspective check. They do such amazing work and shared many photos and stories from different... Continue Reading →

Family Hike Saturday

I deemed today "family day" and made the proclamation that we were all going for a hike and a picnic. Momma had spoken and there would be no arguing. And so, we took off to a local park that I didn't even know HAD hiking trails until an acquaintance enlightened me. As this was a... 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 →

the latest

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... Continue Reading →

weekend report

This weekend has been pretty great. This was the last weekend before hub's busy time of year officially starts so we spent Friday together being lazy and then making up for said laziness by going to the gym. We'd also lined up a babysitter for Friday night. Kiddo loves this particular sitter but sadly, she... Continue Reading →

the ‘rents and a walk

Besides the race this weekend, my parents spent Friday-Sunday with us and it was a great visit. Kiddo probably bugged them to death but I don't think they minded too much. She had Papa on bicycles and swings and various playground equipment, Grandma read her stories and watched some questionable dance moves, plus a trip... Continue Reading →

the weekend and wheels

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... Continue Reading →

sad sick panda

Maybe its the rainy dreary weather but I woke up this morning feeling defeated before I even got out of bed. My throat is feeling sore and I have that "about to get sick" feeling. Impeccable timing as we have a babysitter all weekend and The Accountant and I are staying in the big city... Continue Reading →

never say never

Sometimes you do things that you never thought you would. I survived the two day basic rider class and passed. I'm now officially legal to drive a bike on the highway! Not that I'll be doing that right away. I need to practice a LOT in our neighborhood and on backroads before I'll feel anywhere... Continue Reading →

Sprayground fun

Kiddo loves spray parks and we are lucky to have some great ones close by. Yesterday afternoon we ventured to Cumberland Park in Nashville. It was the perfect day for it, not to hot, not too sunny (although I did get a little crispy on my nose and forehead). The park is beautiful, with lovely... Continue Reading →

saturday busyness

I'd love a nap but its already 4pm and that would just be bad news bears. Its been an extremely full day already. Kiddo had yet another birthday party to go to, this one all the way across town at one of her friend's homes. They had water slides and kiddie pools set up and... 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 →

time spent

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... Continue Reading →

the latest

I'm more like Melancholy Melanie today rather than Crankypants McGhee. Progress people, it's a slow thing sometimes. Memorial Day weekend turned out nice. I won't recap the details but here's a list of sorts...family walk on greenway, family cookout and subsequent soccer playing, trip to the zoo, puppet making and puppet show, gym, toy mini...

Crankypants McGhee

In addition to carrying over some irritability from yesterday afternoon, I also woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. This has made for unpleasantness all around and if I could crawl into a dark cave for days and have no one need anything from me or bother me, I would so... Continue Reading →

roadtrippin’

I'm super lucky to have some fabulous friends. This weekend I drove to Cincinnati to meet Nora for a mini weekend getaway. We got a room close to the University and vegged out and had girly time. We ate a lot of junk and laughed a ton. Sometimes a girl's just gotta get away. And... Continue Reading →

Testy

I'm on a short fuse today for one reason or another. Its Sunday, so by this time every weekend I've responded to 20 gazillion calls of "mommy mommy" and my patience is taxed. I know that I am kiddo's whole world at this stage in her life so I try to keep perspective and channel... Continue Reading →

Fall outing

This weekend was pretty fabulous. Well, for kiddo and I anyway. The Accountant had a migraine most of the weekend so I'm only speaking for 3/4s of the household here I guess. I took kiddo to a local pumpkin patch/farm place on Saturday. We discovered it last year and it is so great! Only 15... Continue Reading →
