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 […]

Listing

After “She’s not HERE today”, I also had a NST scheduled at the hospital and then a weekly appointment at the OB. Needless to say, I was concerned that the early morning hullaballoo was a sign for the rest of the day, BUT!  Luckily it acted instead as a magnet of poor luck, because the […]

So. Anyway.

Well, I did not end up having to drive down to the post office to pick up that package that was delivered on Saturday despite that “USPS Improved Tracking” indicating it till the very end as a Tuesday delivery. (Keep up the great work, USPS.  I hope you detect my heavily-laden sarcasm there.) Knobby went […]

Like the Cow

For two people who usually sit around the house all day, today was a pretty big day. First, we got up way too honkingly early (8:30), hopped into a truck we rented for the day from Home Depot, and drove up to Boone to collect some things of Knobby’s which had been left in the […]

“Never Ever Go Dutch at the Buffet”

Today I set my alarm for bright and early, because I had to go to the dentist. (Bright and early:  10:30.) Went, confirmed that yep, I lost a filling months ago (I know it was weeks before we left for The Cornfields trip), but despite the doctor’s note of what they were permitted to give […]

Nugget Ice, Icy Tile, and Icy Blue Bedrooms.

I was up sick last night, and feel utterly worn out today.  I briefly got up around 10 this morning to return a call confirming a dentist appointment (*cultivated eye roll*), but admitted defeat and went back and slept until sometime around 2:30.  We had an uncharacteristically early UPS delivery this morning and the gate […]

Ashes, Ashes, We All Fall Down

Yes, yes, I promised a trip recap, but yesterday was busy busy. Dad showed up in the morning, then lunch plans were made, so I leapt into the shower and out into the world I went.  When I returned home, I had a brief hour or two to blissfully lay myself down and alternately attempt […]

Scrubbing Monday

Monday Monday . . . I’m getting something accomplished today. I painted the first layer of trim around the bathroom door.  Knobby nudged me that I really needed to get that room presentable, and I’m glad he did.  I’ve just been twiddling my thumbs and putting it off.  I’ll go down after I finish this […]
