I Can’t Move Because I Ate Too Much 18

I Can’t Move Because I Ate Too Much

Thanksgiving was exhausting and awesome – all rolled into one great big ball of turkey and gravy. And sweet potatoes. And pumpkin pie. And green beans. Mmmmm…..Wait. Where was I? Oh, yeah. Thanksgiving was awesome. Unfortunately, I am now into Major Crunch Time for Huge Project At Work so I don’t have time to fill you in on the details of the week (like how I considered trying to steal MrZ’s cousin’s dog because she is literally the most AWESOME DOG EVER (aside from our own, of course)) because I have to Work Work Work. I do have time for...

NaBloPoMo:FAIL 36

NaBloPoMo:FAIL

Oops. I forgot to post an entry yesterday. I have officially, for the first year ever, failed NaBloPoMo. I suck. I have so many really good excuses, I really do. There’s the Sick Dog thing, the HUGE Deadline At Work thing, the Getting Ready to Travel With Small Children thing, and the Holy Crap My House Is Disgusting thing. Oh – and then the Wait, Do These Kids Expect Me To Feed Them? thing. That one is always getting in my way. (And let’s not forget another thing which I can’t mention because my son sometimes reads my blog in...

Little Miss Independent

My daughter’s independence has gotten out of conTROL. Fo’ real – yo. Yesterday she put on a pair of overalls (All by herSELF!) and had them on backwards. When I pointed this out to her while indicating I could help her put them on the right way – she freaked out. “I want them backwards!” Of course, a few minutes later she realized it just felt weird with them on the wrong way and finally gave in to her ego. “Mom? Can you help me turn these around?” This morning, we were going to Target for groceries. She wanted to...

Yada Yada Yada

Saturday is over and I still have nothing to say. My day has been pretty mundane with the cleaning of the car for the Thanksgiving trip and the shopping for the movies to make the kids not freak out on that same trip. We also went and bought a few more winter staples for the kids now that the temperatures have dropped to freezing. Because for some reason, people don’t think you should put your kids in t-shirts when there’s ice on the windshields. I’m the queen of inappropriate climate-related clothing choices for my kids. If I had a dollar...

Non-Spoiler Thoughts on “Twilight” 44

Non-Spoiler Thoughts on “Twilight”

Guess what I did last night? Saw Twilight. And let me just start by saying I loved it and will be seeing it again this weekend: Without A Doubt. However, the crowd in the theater almost ruined it for me. Between tweeny girls laughing at inappropriate times and adults constantly pointing out things in the movie different from the books (OF COURSE THEY’RE DIFFERENT) – I wanted to beat several of them. That said…it was very cool seeing it in a crowd that screamed both at the Harry Potter preview and Edward’s first on-screen moment. You take the good with...
