Pleased as Punch

*Yawn* Knobby has been on vacation for nearly two weeks now.  Lots of little house improvements have been made. House has been automated.  He’s made an app for our phones which can turn lights on and off, uses Sonos habits and other tricks via the Nest thermostats.  Replaced light switches but we can’t really see […]

Common Sense: The New National Deficit

Pixy needs a martini. I went out today.  On my own. That’s probably nothing to most of you.  But . . . I don’t like going out.  I like staying home.  I like staying home for more than a week at a time, if possible.  I like WALLOWING in the staying at home. And I […]

Carolina Inn Wedding Weekend

We attended a wedding this weekend, and turned it into a little mini vacation getaway. Thursday, we drove down to Garm and PopPop’s, in one of the worst rainstorms.  From Marion to Hickory, we crawled.  I say that as “craaaawwwwwwled”.  Couldn’t see past our hood, everyone had their flashers on, it was interstate crawl.  Just […]

Model Homes and Macans

~You well know my snobbery regarding “reality television”.  However, I do admit that my DVR records The Duggars. I know.  I’m a hypocrite.  What can I say — I found their lifestyle and morality refreshingly different from the likes of TrashyHousewivesInForeclosure and DancingWithTheD-List. Anyway.  This season, two of the DuggarDaughters have hooked up with guys […]

Limestone Lament

Today. Today was a great day. I had my first ever visit to the chiropractor.  Carrying around the Minion has apparently gotten me all out of whack, and my neck has been stuck since before we left for The Cornfields. Knobby was tired of hearing me complain, so he made the appointment yesterday.  I was […]

Monday Monday

Ugh.  Monday. Last night, I flubbed Minion’s bedtime routine.  He slept straight through a feeding at 9, I woke him at 10 for the “bedtime bottle”, but then we stayed up watching a movie until late.  So . . . it is completely my fault that he then woke up at 6:45 this morning. Only […]

Happy Working Song

Happy three-month birthday to Minion today! Learning to share Daddy’s lap.   (This is most difficult for the dogs to learn.)   This kid is so stinking happy.   You can’t stop the smiles.  Little toothless old man. Today, he discovered the mesmerizing effect of Garm’s Easter basket blinking glow worm.     Such a […]

Sleepwalker

Something ab.so.lute.ly crazy happened last night. Minion went to sleep at a decent hour . . . and I did not wake up until 9:30 this morning. Yes, that’s right.  There was no Night Shift waking to feed and change him. Did Knobby do it?  Did I just not hear him crying?  Nope . . […]

Revenge of the Scentsy

Weekend Recovery Day. I haven’t yet started on painting the last wall in the guest bedroom (you really have to wait for the mood to strike)(and the Minion to cooperate), but I HAVE been trying to organize and de-clutter that room. The trick to keeping spaces clean for me seems to be using them.  You’d […]

Things we’ve been getting done: ~Had my root canal. Ow. ~Pixy’s salon day yesterday.  A much-needed cut and color, as I was scheduled a month ago but had to drop that appointment as it was so soon after the Minion’s arrival.  I was so sick of my hair!  Every waking moment that I stayed at […]
