Stick a Pin in me, I’m done.

Yes, you’re right. I disappeared. There we were recapping our jaunt to Atlanta in over five the times it actually TOOK TO MAKE THE TRIP, and I left you before the final installment. You know what it was? We went to IKEA.  Yes.  Bow down to the almighty IKEA. And I got so excited about […]

Atlanta: Two

After failing at the Lenox Square Mall Closing Time guessing game, (that should be trademarked) we made our way to our hotel and checked in somewhere between 9:30 and 10. We had been back and forth our typical 21254 times about the hotel. Knobby learned there would be travelling that would require a passport. He […]

Sunday ShortList

Weekend Recap: Let’s see . . . We: 1.  Picked up my carpet samples from the second store on Friday with about five minutes to spare before closing time.  Took them to the first store for comparison.  Took approximately 32983654 pictures so could debate further when home. 2.  Despite this and carrying them all around […]

Service Singalong

Well, we’re not getting the Jeep back today, either. It had been intermittently (but more often than not) been popping up a “Service needed for 4×4″ message on the dash, and disabling the traction control.  The message was annoying, and obviously the traction disabling didn’t make me think comfy thoughts about riding in it, either.

Auto-Pilot

The recital. The recital . . . was disappointing.  I did not do my best.  Anywhere near my best. We were stressed beforehand.  I was upstairs getting ready . . . and this was full-makeup, hair-in-hot-rollers kind of getting ready.  Minion was downstairs as I was attempting to figure out what to wear (AKA:  Destroying […]

The Changing of the Seasonal Guard

What with some chilly temperatures recently, which ushered in the two days of snow we are now experiencing (brrrrr) . . . . The changing of the seasonal clothing guard was all go go go. I found this process easier in the Cornfields house. There, I went back and forth between master bed and couch […]

Snow and Vertigo

Our first “winter” storm is on the way . . . But for me, vertigo beat it here. Luckily it was close to bedtime. I carried fresh bedding out of the dryer and found that I couldn’t make myself walk straight. I kept veering into the wall. Trying to get back downstairs was even more […]

Chipper and Chirpy

Well. I performed this evening in front of a small group of complete and utter strangers. And obviously I survived to tell the tale. Eschewing my operatic Italian piece (“act Julia Child meets Miss Piggy, diva style” my instructor said) . . . I performed my favorite, the “Happy Working Song” from “Enchanted”. I played […]

Nope.

Last night as I was putting Minion in his sleepsack, a spider slid down between our faces, from one of the leaves of his mobile. Nope. The past two mornings, I’ve been woken up around eight (a crime in itself) by a scrambling and scratching coming from my bedroom ceiling and behind the walls. A […]
