Bah humbug. 9

Bah humbug.

Ew. It’s Monday. And ew. LilZ has to go back to school and MrZ has to go back to work. And ew. It’s raining and cold. This day is going to feel like the quintessential Monday. (I am betting I didn’t use that word right. But you know what? I kinda don’t care. It’s a Q-word and how often can you use those?) The last five days were GREAT. I loved having my family in town. I loved finally getting to meet my brother’s girlfriend. I loved cooking for my family and I loved having MrZ and LilZ around more...

Who’s on your shit list? 13

Who’s on your shit list?

There is some kid who has been riding up and down our street on some moped type vehicle. I guess technically? It’s a very SMALL motorcycle. But it sounds about as macho as a moped. It’s annoying the crap out of me and even though the kid riding it looks about 12, I’m still thinking about beating him up. Especially since it makes the dogs bark. I’ll beat up anyone getting my dogs riled up. Nikki is here with the hiccups and they annoy her as much as moped-boy annoys me. She’s thinking about beating her diaphragm up. LilZ is...

Breast Pads? Or Socks? You decided.

Several things have made me laugh the last few days. The first of which? Seeing NikkiZ’s face turn BRIGHT red as she grunts and grimaces and pushes and scowls to make the smallest poop ever seen. I wonder if she’s disappointed at all? Like “Man. I really worked HARD on that one and that is ALL there was? If I’m going to work that hard mom should use at least FIVE wipes.” Also? Seeing MrZ walk out of the bedroom the other day with one of my nursing pads on the bottom of his foot. He realized it pretty soon,...

Thanksgiving Wrap-Up 9

Thanksgiving Wrap-Up

This may have been my best Thanksgiving EVER in the history of my life. I only have a few pictures to show because I don’t like putting pictures on the internet of family who haven’t specifically said they don’t mind their faces on the web. But – these pictures are enough, I believe. MrZ and LilZ decided to run the 5K turkey trot Thanksgiving morning. LilZ was going to run the tiny tot trail, but found out it was a wussy run for kids 5 and under so he actually ran the 5K! Can you believe it? He ran the...

So much thanks, so little time. 19

So much thanks, so little time.

MrZ, LilZ, my Dad, my Bro, and my Bro’s girlfriend are all at the Turkey Trot race this morning and NikkiZ and I are getting Thanksgiving dinner ready. It’s very quiet around here, but I’m sure it won’t be for long. I just wanted to pop in between chores and give Thanks to YOU. I have a billion things in my life I’m thankful for, and I make sure to live my life like I know that every day. I know I’m blessed and I thank the powers that be every morning and every night for the gifts I’ve been...
