News from the Couch and Beyond – Vol. I

I’ve decided to start a new series for when I have nothing to say. Which is quite often. Hence the “Mundane ramblings about a whole lotta nuthin’” tag line above. And now the first installment of The Couch: I should be at work right now, but I’m not. Instead I’m sitting on the aforementioned couch…

Presidents’ Day And Other Happenings

Happy Presidents’ Day – especially those of you who get the day off of school or work. Personally I’d rather be celebrating spring. A warm, but not hot, sunny day with the windows open and the smell of fragrant flowers wafting through a very clean and dust free house (it’s my fantasy, isn’t it?). While…

I’m Still Around

My poor mother had to call me today because I haven’t been keeping up with my blog so she didn’t know what was going on with me. Sadder words have never been typed! So I’m going to give you a bit of random… * * * We had Chinese food the other day and check…

Where In The World Have I Been?

Or more appropriately, where has the last week gone?? Is this what happens when you go back to work? You’re actually up and out and doing things and the next thing you know, the entire week is gone and you’re onto the next one? And not just the working thing, either, but Todd was in…

Sickies, Weight, Age, and Other Depressing Subjects

I’m almost afraid of jinxing myself by typing this, but since I’m not the superstitious type I’m going to type it anyway. Everyone in my family has been sick except for me. Taylor started it off, to be quickly followed by Katie and Todd. Apparently all those immune system workouts at the preschool last year…

A Day of Hair, Leaves and Dogs

You may recall a month ago or so I said I was going to cut my hair after I’d lost 15 pounds. I changed my mind. I haven’t lost 15 pounds, but I did cut my hair today. Well, I didn’t cut my hair because I’m totally inept at that. Just ask Todd. Or Taylor.…

Whiny Wednesday

I still feel like ca-ca, though less than I did yesterday. I took Nyquil last night and had drug-induced dreams of Anne of Green Gables arguing with me about sudoku puzzles. If that doesn’t make for a fitful sleep I don’t know what does. The kids ditched me today for their friends. I can’t imagine…

Busy, Busy, Busy

I’m going to be very busy this weekend doing nothing. Seriously. I have the pleasure of a ton of alone time and I’m going to fill that time with flicks of the chick variety, books and computer. Coffee will be flowing freely and I may even throw in some Vermonty Python ice cream for good…

Happy Friday!!

Friday means I get to sleep in as late as I want to tomorrow. I’ve been so tired lately that I may just stay in bed until lunch. Probably not, but just knowing I can makes me nigh giddy. Friday also means that I get to meet with my Homies. I adore that about Fridays…

Catching Up and Upcoming Posts

I started my training in earnest this morning. I finally feel well enough to do something more strenuous than blowing my nose and throwing away the Kleenex. Though I did lose two pounds last week. I was going to ask my scientist friend, Kris, what the molecular make up of snot is and how to…
