One thing leads to another 22

One thing leads to another

DO NOT FORGET THAT BIG BROTHER AND AMAZING RACE BOTH COME ON AN HOUR EARLIER TONIGHT. Do you know what else I want to see tonight? Father of the Pride. First of all? I have an oddly unsettling loyalty to John Goodman. I think it comes from sticking with Roseanne for YEARS, even though it started sucking really bad. (Whose idea was it to have them become rich, anyway?). But also? Because it looks like one of those shows the whole family will like. And also? Because all of the previews make me laugh. And that’s unusual. I actually made...

Late. 14

Late.

Okay. So at this moment, I SHOULD be waking up LilZoot to take his shower. He’s still sleeping. I SHOULD be fully dressed, whereas I’m wearing my work skirt, but my jammie top. I SHOULD have had at least two cups of coffee by now (decaf. but I still need it.) but I just took the first sip of my first cup. I SHOULD be packing LilZoot’s lunch box, but I don’t even know where it is yet. I SHOULD be proofing and entry that I already wrote. I SHOULD be 15 minutes from leaving for work, but it looks...

LilZoot  Rocks 14

LilZoot Rocks

We just went and took a bunch of presents to my neighbor who had her baby this weekend. She had Eric on the day I would have been due had I not miscarried, but that’s neither here nor there. Anyway – LilZoot was showing her other two children the presents we got them too (we hate for siblings to be left out) and he was so cute. He was showing Phoebe (18 months) how to take care of the baby doll we got her, and he was showing George (3 yrs) the truck we got him. He is so good...

Ring Around the Red Stained Tupperware 14

Ring Around the Red Stained Tupperware

I have a Rubbermaid container, here at my office, that I use to heat up my lunch. I just realized today, that the label on it says, “STAIN SHEILD – Resists Staining” specifically “Resists Tomato Stains”. It even has a little shield on it as a symbol for the “STAIN SHEILD” quality. Am I supposed to have problems with stained tupperware? I don’t know if I have any that aren’t stained. I just bought this one at Target several weeks ago when I forgot one from home. Is red-stained tupperware the new “Ring Around the Collar?”. Is it something we...

Good Morning!! 16

Good Morning!!

My weekend was too short. Our first soccer game went well. We lost, BUT it was the first time I’ve ever seen one of LilZ’s coaches actually have control over the team. They listened to him, and obeyed him. It was beautiful. Most of the time, it’s some guy screaming over a bunch of boys who are too preoccupied beating each other up and finding things on the field to throw to listen to what he’s saying. We have several REALLY good players who actually seem to like to pass, which is a nice change. It should be a good...
