This Story Would Be Better If I Could Provide Audio

(And also? This will be one of the many entries my child will request I delete once she gets old enough to be embarrassed by such things.) NikkiZ always seems to need to go potty when we’re in the weird public places we (a) Never go to and therefore don’t know where the bathrooms are or (b) Would rather not use the bathrooms at due to possibility of contamination. She’s potty-trained enough now to hold it for short periods of time, but this weekend? It wasn’t an option. We were at the civic center downtown to get tickets and we...

String on the Finger 24

String on the Finger

So, just for the record? My resolutions are not going so well. I feel like, overall, I’ve made about one step in the direction I’m wanting to go with my life. On step towards just being the better person that I so want to be. Which is still – you know – one step. So, I should be proud of that one step. But, the fact that I’m not moving faster means that the bad crap that happens because these changes haven’t been made? Because my priorities are still askew and my life is still unorganized and chaotic? Those annoying...

Helping Everyone On The Interweb Make It Through This Monday

I was checking a stylesheet change on my site this weekend when this picture showed up on my random photos bar at the top of the page. I had forgotten how often NikkiZ made the scrunch-y face. I’m glad to see her brother is doing his best to populate that tag in flickr as well. I know I preach it all the time, but this is exactly why I want to make babies with flickr. Look how easily I was able to grab photos based on random tags I came up with to compare my kids. Of course, you have...

Hot and Cold 27

Hot and Cold

MrZ and I have entered that portion of the year where we spend our days coming in behind the other one to adjust the thermostat. He likes it warmer than I do. So, I lower the thermostat setting and he turns it up. And in between we argue with each other about how the other one should QUIT DOING THAT ALREADY. It’s like a really boring comedy routine. I just do NOT like to be hot. And because I tend to dress warmer in the winter than he does, I get really hot in my sweaters and blue jeans inside...

Silver Lining? Maybe? 16

Silver Lining? Maybe?

I’m trying to be more positive in my life – hoping that the universe will return the favor. However – this morning? Not so successful. Several things caused me stress and anxiety which had me in a grumpy tizzy bitching and grumbling and spewing negative energy to everyone in my family. I feel bad about this – but I still want to vent about what is causing me discord. That’s what the blog is for, right? So, I’m going to let you know the things pissing me off – but I’m going to try to do it in a positive...
