Easter Baskets and Boppies

Time flies when it’s the weekend. Friday afternoon we wanted to get the sidewalk finished.  Knobby had to make a Home Depot trip mid-work (but it was good because Minion needed to be fed, anyway), and we didn’t finish until after dark, but  . . . we finished!  That’s what counts. Except . . . […]

Porpoise Painting and Sick Days

Oh, did you think I was posting with pictures of my finished stair hall? Ha. That’s as far as it got.  I’d been flirting with a cold and it caught up to me, and who wants to paint with a cold. Not me. I think Oliver has the cold as well.  He keeps randomly screaming […]

A Perfect Moment

Finished painting the guest bedroom. (Pictures once Knobby moves desk back after work.) Planned ahead for dinner. (You probably think that is no feat, but you’d be surprised.) Have sorted laundry and folded towels, reorganized the walk-in bath closet. The Minion and I have escaped to the bedroom. Windows are open to air out the […]

Olympic Elephant in the Room

With all this Olympic commentary, I can’t figure out why no one questions why Meryl Davis looks like a kabuki drag queen.

Rooty Tooty

Ugh. I started having some sensitivity with my teeth a week or so ago. My one crown seemed awfully sensitive to the Popsicles that Knobby would bring me. But, I said . . . It’s likely just all this hormone stuff. Or I’ve been out without enough layers on during all the snow and aggravated […]

The Screams Begin.

I sure as howdy would like to know what this child has against food and television. Turn on the tv and think you’ll watch something? The Screams Begin. He’s quiet and you think you can finally make yourself a sandwich? Oh, you might even make that sandwich, but there’s no way you’re going to eat […]

Ugh.

Haven’t been sleeping well. Woke up at five this morning, unable to get back to sleep. First it was a headache. Then it was panic. I couldn’t get back to sleep until some time after eight. Then up with Knobby’s alarm at 9:30. Panic through the day. Another NST. Knobby wanted to stop for food […]

Snowglobe

Ohhh, snippity snap, it’s snowing! Fat fluffy flakes now.  Awwww yiss. It won’t last . . . but that doesn’t make me act like less of a child when they’re floating past my window.

Saved by the Drip

Merry Christmas, everyone. Hope your holiday celebrations were all tinsel and eggnog. Me, I got to enjoy an overnight stay in the hospital. No Minion yet . . . but some very cliffhanger moments. I wrote previously about the OB ordering up a 24 hour test because my proteins were up when I had the […]

Give Him a Medal

Early this morning (4:45), We were woken by a hefty wind storm slamming what we assume was a loose piece of siding against our side of the house. We assume, because by the light of day there was nothing amiss. The cacophony sounded as though surely the entire side of the house had been detached. […]
