To Clean or Not To Clean Up After Your Kids in Someone Elses’s Home

I am going to backtrack on my life a bit and tell you more about our trip to Slidell before introducing the Topic Of The Day here at misszoot.com. Not that we always have one, but this has been on my mind over the holiday break and I’d love to hear your input. MrZ has a cousin that is just 2 weeks younger than NikkiZ. She is the thing NikkiZ looks forward to when we make the drive down to Louisiana. The first day we were there we went over to her house and played for a bit. Their house...

Textures! TEXTURES!

When we were in Slidell we were at MrZ’s Grandfather’s house most of the visit. He’s in the hospital (hence the trip) and the family was congregating at his house. This turned out to be better than I expected as I was concerned about there not being any toys to play with. Turns out? Poppy’s backyard was the best playground a kid could ask for. Because it was grassy, there was no dog poop (like there is at our house) and there were all sorts of treasures on the ground. See…NikkiZ started out the day with a certain tunnel vision....

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I’m sorry I crapped out on the whole NaBloPoMo thing. I’ll try to make up for it after Thanksgiving. There’s no point in trying now as the rest of the world country (I guess the world doesn’t really celebrate Thanksgiving does it? My brain hurts.) is doing the proper Thanksgiving thing: Spending time with family. I, on the other hand, am spending the day cleaning a 14-year old’s room. Since LilZ is out of town, it’s the perfect opportunity. I do this about 2 times a year. I scrub it from top to bottom. The...

I Have A Blood Fuzziness Level of .19

(Way above the legal limit…if you should know.) I made it. I went to the New Moon premiere last night. I go to a lot of midnight premieres and I always judge the movie based on whether or not there’s any regret the next morning. I can say – beyond a shadow of a doubt – there is NO REGRET. This has been a long and busy and exhausting week. Put aside the fact that I have been fighting some sort of hayfever/cold thing – I’ve also been trying to accomplish a lot of prep before my family comes in...

Bullets Of Random Thoughts That Might Indicate I’m Insane

You know what I want? One of those squiggly clear headphone thingies that these law enforcement guys on TV wear. I think Secret Service wears them too. I totally want one just to wear around to make people wonder who’s talking to me in my ear and if I’m someone super awesome and powerful. I think this would be especially awesome as I make funny faces to my son in the grocery cart at Publix. Where can I get one of those things? And if I sometimes put my finger to my ear and spoke to my wrist about “The...
