“Cest la fille dun roi.”

I suppose you have given up on me, I’ve been absent from the blog for so long. But I’m still here.  Just busy, or resting from the busy. I’ve had a little break from Voice, since the recital.  I resume lessons soon, and I’ve been deliberating what we will tackle next.  I found myself stuck […]

Whirlwind Week

We had a very busy week leading up to the Memorial Day holiday. There were doctor appointments, beauty appointments, Knobby felt like going for multi-hour shopping trips that left us arriving home worn out (Shopping is hard, yo.), I had my shattered crown taken off and replaced with the temporary new crown, Knobby got a […]

Atlanta: One

We went on an extremely impromtu trip this past week. We needed an expedited passport, and the closest office to acquire one is in Atlanta. An appointment was made, and off we went.  I was going to be very low-key, very inexpensive (ha), but then before we left, Knobby sent me a link to the […]

Spring Sprung

Whether we realized it or not, Spring has sprung. It brings a lift in the spirits, a desire to attack and air the house, and projects. The house smells of delicious lemon and lavender cleaning products.  I depend daily on: Method Kitchen Hand Wash (lemongrass),   Williams-Sonoma Meyer Lemon Dish Soap (my mother so loved […]

Verdant Fields of Grain

This stinker. I spent the first four months of his life trying to encourage him to use a dummy instead of his fingers. Now, NOW the child has joyfully discovered the dummy.  He chews on it while teething. He also: ~Will stand without holding on to something, but isn’t confident enough to move without support. […]

Charge of the Light Brigade.

Oy. It’s been a long time since I last posted! Let’s see.  Knobby went away to work in The Cornfields for two weeks. The day after he left (Monday) we had an ice storm, followed by snow. The ice was a beast and stuck around in our 10 and 20 degree temps until we got […]

Material Pixy

1.  At some point during the Thanksgiving festivities, Knobby made some comment about that little TTS that I had circled at the Audi lot when he bought the Jetta. It was an odd comment . . . odd because it didn’t have the usual tone of the button-pushing we tend to perform.  Further pressing revealed that […]

Tis the Season for Sephora

We went to Garm and PopPop’s house for Thanksgiving this year. I had some returns from my four boxes of Sephora goodness (shock), and I hoped to hit their mall as we drove in on Wednesday night.  Obviously — they have a store, and we don’t. We were running late, and the thought of going […]

Flame

Well. I need to get this blog back into gear. Somehow days with nothing on the schedule turn into the most frantic. Big weird paralyzing pass-out type panic last night. (Gave Minion a bottle, laid about watching him play while the dread approached . . . waited in hopes it would go away . . […]

WaterPumps and SeatbeltBags

Good news: The problem with the Jeep was the water pump. Why is that good news?  Still covered under warranty. The dealer service told Knobby that he was overbooked through August 14, but that if he could bring it it and leave it, they’d try to look at it during gaps.  Not like we could […]
